The lodge was everything that I expected - great accommodations, good food (best Caesar salad I've had in a very long time), amazing view, informative hikes and talks. I'm not sure what some of the people who are posting expect, but this is typical of National Park lodges.
I agree with the person who posted "Why would you stay anywhere else?" because they did offer a variety of hikes and talks. I, too, took advantage of all of it and can't imagine being able to do this if I had stayed in Gustavus.
In addition I saw a moose and a porcupine on the main road. I hadn't seen those anywhere else.
The Glacier Bay tour was amazing. I was able to see a plethora of wildlife including eagles, harbor seals, puffin, whales (Orca and Humpback), bears, and mountain goats. The glacier calved several times while we were there as well. I know how fortunate I was to see all of this. Nicole, our ranger, was extremely informative. We were fortunate to have her as our guide.
