My friend and I had a wonderful time here-so relaxing and we were treated like honored family. The 3 meals a day were outstanding--vegetables straight from the garden, fresh fish, homemade bread and desserts. We were even given a very substantial lunch when we had to go. Lunch and dinner were family style and for breakfast we could choose. The... More

We stayed 5 nights here. What a fantastic place this is. Dave had organised our itinerary from air taxi to tours. Our room, Fairview was spacious enough, plenty of towels and soap in the bathroom. The food was delicious, just as well we only stayed 5 nights! Dave and his staff, especially Judy, were most accommodating. People on special diets... More

Our hosts and the staff of this inn really made us welcome from the pick up at the airport until our afternoon flight back to Juneau. The room was a lovely ensuite overlooking the garden. It was well appointed, very clean and comfortable. The food was outstanding, served family style, and more than adequate in quantity. We loved the chef... More

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
