We visited Gustavus in August and did not stay here but we were very fortunate to have had dinner reservations made for us one night! I would absolutely encourage anyone staying in Gustavus to make their way to the Inn for at least one dinner! You must arrange a reservation in advance and your inn keeper should be able to... More

Dave Lesh and the staff (many of whom are family members) at Gustavus Inn do a great job. The meals were great, the rooms clean and comfortable, the local knowledge off the charts and the service wonderful. Everything functions so smoothly, even the largest challenges are overcome like mere speed bumps.

We booked Garden View, a room with its own bathroom. We loved everything about our stay, especially the organic garden! The food, staff and service were excellent. Very clean, very homey. The bikes were handy. There's a short bike ride (25 minutes) to a short hike (15 minutes) to a 1958 plane crash site which I found interesting. The Inn... More

Gustavus is such a kicked back little town, and the Gustavus Inn is a wonderful way to enjoy it. The grounds and gardens are spectacular. The food is amazing. Dave and JoeAnne are great hosts. What ever we wanted to do, Dave was right there to help with ideas and arrangements. We are going back next year!

The Inn is a unique experience. The location is picturesque. Dave and his staff went above and beyond to make our stay worry free. The food is outstanding! The inn attracts interesting guests who contribute to the "at home" feeling. We'll be back.

Gustavus Inn is truly a great place to stay. The room was very nice with a bay window overlooking the beautiful garden which is a combination of vegetables and flowers. The vegetables all show up in the meals that are served. They take care of picking you up from the ferry or plane and take you wherever you need to... More

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... More

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... More

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...
