Glacier Bay's Bear Track Inn
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Gustavus
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Just returned from a first time trip to Alaska and the first stop was three days at the Bear Track Inn. We arrived from Juneau and we were met at the airport by the inn's shuttle that took us around the area while we enjoyed the comforts of the inn. From the moment we arrived, they treated us like family; Janie and her team made sure we were on time for our activities from the whale-watching, glacier tour and halibut fishing. The inn rooms were comfortable and clean and food was very good. The staff was always there to answer any questions or make recommendations for the next day. The lobby could use a bit of updating with furniture, but we enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere which made it a wonderful stay. If we were in the area again, we would definitely stay at the Bear Track Inn.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room at end of hall - very quiet.

We wanted to get away into the wilderness and this was the place to go. We were very well taken care of with every need met. All of our excursions were fantastic. The food was so fresh and fantastic from salmon to Dungeness crab. I wish we had stayed longer.

From the moment you step foot on the property, your every need is taken care of. The staff is attentive, warm and go out of their way to make you feel welcome- you feel like you are staying with family. The Inn is a lovely log cabin set among fields with endless views. Peaceful and serene. The rooms are large, food is top notch and fresh. The owner Janie takes pride in her inn and her customers' experience. And to top it off, they have a mascot Bandit who is the sweetest dog. He accompanied us on a hike and lead the way. We wished we could have taken him home.

Highly recommend Gracier Bay's Bear Track Inn and hope to come back to visit again soon!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the front side of the Inn.

We just got back from our wonderful stay at the Bear Track Inn. The staff was attentive and the room was large with a great view. We enjoyed Chef Ivan's dinners with the menus changing each night; his enthusiasm was a treat. It is a peaceful get away, and they will arrange and transport you to whatever you want to do while in Glacier Bay. They even have the gear and clothes you might need. Fishing was great with Captain Jim. Thanks Janey and crew for making it all happen!

Glacier Bay's Bear Track Inn exceeded our expectations. While planning for our 15 year anniversary trip to Alaska, we went back and forth between a cruise and the Bear Track Inn. Boy, did we make the right choice to really experience Alaska. The Inn seamlessly took care of our excursions and transportation daily and fed us like a 5 Star restaurant from our made to order breakfast to our packed lunches to take along with us and delicious dinners. And, who could forget coffee and cookies and appetizers in the afternoon! We would highly recommend the Bear Track Inn....book there and you will not regret it!

Having done Alaska by Cruise Ship before, we planned a 10 day trip on our own and this was the first lodge in our itinerary! Every morning, a scrumptious breakfast was waiting, and our lunches were packed for our excursions. The small cruise boat to the Glaciers took us up much closer than the big ship did. Our halibut fishing trip couldn't be better since we both caught enough fish to last us the Winter, and we had a friendly whale following us the entire day! The lodge even provided boots and rain gear. Before flying off to Skagway, we golfed the local course (again complete with a packed lunch from the lodge) and had a fun and relaxing day on a most unusual and funky golf course with breathtaking vistas of the surrounding snow capped mountains. Our driver from the lodge stopped to allow us pictures of 3 moose on our way back. Dinner menus and the wine were exceptional, and if you like peace and quiet (no tv's in the rooms) this is your place to stay! Private, quiet, attentive and lodge luxurious sums it up!

One of the best travel experiences we've ever had. Stayed five days in June 2013. This is luxury accomodation verging on 5-stars yet in Alaska maritime wilderness. Nothing else quite this. Beyond the outstanding lodging and cusine excellent assistance was provided planning and arranging for different outoor activity each day. A fisherman's paradise, but plenty of other experiences were available including guided nature hiking, guided kayaking, whate waching cruises,, glacier watching in small plane with excursion to Skagway and spectacular train; and the highlight deep cruise into Glacier Bay. Per day this is expensive but the total cost is no greater than a luxury cruise trip and this is a better experience, really connecting with the land of Alaska and its people. Also enjoyed meeting fellow guests from all over the world in the spectacular lodge maintained in like new condition. The dedicate owner/hostess Jane is headed into retirement. I hope a new owner/operator will emerge to continue to maintain and operate this first class National Treasure.
