About

Additional travel required to reach the Inn. Leave your vehicles and your stress behind. Homer, AK is the End of the Road with Seldovia, AK being the secret oasis for relaxation so close but so far away from the bustle of town and everyday life. Come for a visit and see for yourself the tranquility of getting away from it all. Vehicles can be brought to and from Seldovia from Homer via the Alaska Marine Highway System but there are very limited sailing days for the State Ferry into and and out of Seldovia. It is best to leave your vehicle behind and use the local taxis, ATV rentals, or walk to get around while visiting Seldovia. No matter how you choose to get to our quiet little town we look forward to seeing you. Our friendly staff will help make your visit a memorable one.

We liked it so much we came back again

Mary and her crew are a cut above. The rooms are so cozy, inviting, and beautifully decorated with Alaskan art. Perry's Cafe is much more than an ice cream shop, we found we enjoyed the food there better than any other place in Seldovia. I recommend the "Roast Beast" sandwich, it's very tasty. The breakfast burrito and the parfait are great ways to begin a day. The staff is friendly and helpful. We came for Memorial Day weekend and enjoyed it so much we came back for Labor Day. Seldovia is an unexplored and unexploited diamond in the rough. There is so much country there to explore. If you are looking for a fresh place to go outside and play Seldovia is it. If you want a quiet place to spend the weekend to get away from it all, Seldovia is that as well. Thank you Mary and staff for being so hospitable and creating such a welcome oasis. I would expect to spend double for the amenities offered by the Sea Parrot Inn. We will make it a point to come again.


Enjoyable stay

Great location right at the pier. Rooms were nicely decorated and newly renovated. The common areas were under renovation while we were there so they should be done soon. The host was great and very friendly.


Great place to stay in Seldovia

The rooms were newly refurbished and in excellent condition. The kitchen and lounge upstairs had not been finished. When it is, the whole Inn will be outstanding. Its a wonderful place to spend a few days. A number of selections were available for breakfast and they were all very good. The rooms do not contain a refrigerator, a microwave nor a television. However, all can be found upstairs in the kitchen/lounge. Mary is a wonderful host and sees to all ones needs.


Great stop

Our Stay at Sea Parrot

4.0 on July 17, 2012

We enjoyed our one night stay at Sea Parrot. It was clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. Our room did not have a television which might bother some people but we were in Seldovia to enjoy the natural beauty and do some watercolors so it wasn't important to us. The cafe offered a limited menu but the sandwiches we ordered were very tasty. The cafe had the advantage of being the only restaurant open on the Sunday afternoon we were in town. It took a while for the food to be served. The staff seemed to be easily overwhelmed if more than a six or so people showed up at one time. The response of people to the speed of service was reflective of who they were. Some people would fuss about it, while others would settle in with a cup of coffee and enjoy a leisurely conversation with companions, as if they were on vacation. We would definitely stay at the Sea Parrot again. We also rented one of the electric cars to go to the outer beach. It was a hoot to drive.

My room was much nicer than I expected. The bathroom with a tiled floor-level shower was beautiful. Perfect for a wheelchair. The room was very clean and nicely appointed.
