Gustavus Inn was great. Relaxing, informal, and comfortable.
Dave was very helpful in planning activities.
Great Breakfast. Packed lunch for day trips.
Lots of activities: whale watching, fishing, boat trips into Glacier Bay, and hiking, bike riding.

Beautiful garden: Has laundry facilities

We stayed here in June as a family. We had heard some great reviews but Dave and his team truly went above and beyond. Whether it was organizing an alternative flight into Gustavus when the jet was cancelled, to organizing a fishing trip, to someone shelling the crab for our kids at dinner - nothing was too much trouble. The food was great as was the location. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Lovely location in the middle of nowhere. Very homely with friendly staff. There seemed to be free pick ups and drop offs to wherever you need to go, there were also free bikes to take out and use.

The food was excellent. There are sit down meals at dinner time at a set time. I enjoyed this, but is a little restrictive if you want to be doing something other than having dinner at 6.30pm. If you were away at lunch time you got a packed lunch! Breakfast was very good with lots of homemade jams, etc.

Lovely gardens. Plenty of communal space with dvds available to watch, but there are no TVs in the room (not an issue for me just letting others know).

There is a shop at the cross roads where you can buy a few items, e.g. water, but there isn't much else there. Very rural.

Room Tip: Second floor is probably slightly better

Wonderful service and hospitality, and the gourmet meals with fresh produce from their own garden and freshly caught seafood is second to none. Assisted with bookings where necessary, the bikes are a great idea, their guests are all such fun and it was a spectacular full moon flying Chinese lanterns into the sky - cannot wait to come back to do more whale watching and some fishing.

Gustavus Inn offers guests a variety of choices for fun and entertainment. My favorite activities were fishing and biking. When we wanted to go fishing, the owners arranged everything we needed to have a good time. Bikes, raincoats, and games are available for guests to use at any time. For bikes, we did not have to ask to borrow them, we just had to go to the place where they keep all the bikes, choose a bike, choose a helmet, and go! The beds in the rooms were very soft and comfortable. We were able to fall asleep quite fast because it was quite peaceful. The meals were restaurant quality (outstanding)! I liked all the types of cheeses that they served for breakfast. The location was excellent because it was just a ten minute drive from the border of Glacier Bay National Park. If you want to visit but do not want to be on a cruise, this is the perfect place to stay

Room Tip: Just so you know, some of the rooms do not have bathrooms. I recommend that you ask for a room with...

This was not luxury in terms of exquisite furnishings and decor, this was a different of luxury. It was like returning to childhood for a few days and being cared for very well in a very kindly boarding school! Everything was done for you: activities were organised, packed lunches provided and of course lifts given everywhere. We had an absolutely fabulous time - the food is wonderful, especially if you like fish which thankfully we do, and we met so many interesting people through the family style dining. Whilst we were in Gustavus we went whale watching (magnificent), boat trip to Glacier Bay where we saw a glacier calving, fishing (caught 140lb halibut), did a guided nature walk in the National Park and had a superb massage in a cabin in the woods. This was just the most fantastic holiday and I thoroughly recommend it.

What a lovely inn and the owners are so nice. The food is excellent most made from their own beautiful garden. They have great recommendations for the local attractions and provide a shuttle to just about everything. Absolutely loved our stay & would stay again.
