My son and I took a trip to Glacier Bay to celebrate his graduation from high school. It was unforgettable. Dave and the staff at the inn were unfailingly helpful, polite, and friendly. The food was tremendous. And the staff arranged great trips for us, which included fishing, kayaking, hiking, and biking. My son and I would go out early... More

We have visited many times and agree with others' comments about the delicious food, excellent accommodations and coordination of various activities. But what really makes the Inn so outstanding is the genuine warmth and attention to detail by Dave and Joann. They remember and respond to your likes, comments and preferences. They do not hesitate to make extra efforts to... More

Thanks for coming back to Alaska again. We alway look forward to hosting you. The weather did present some challenges this summer, and we love the chance to "turn it into a postitive", Happy travellers make it easy to go the extra mile and share your enjoyment. It was a great night in the end! More

We just spent 2 nights at the Inn as a family of 5 and had a wonderful time. Thank you to Dave and his team. Food was delicious, the rooms were clean and meticulously decorated. Lots of attention to detail...they even helped us change travel plans on charter flights and arranged all our activities in Gustavus. One of my favorite... More

We had a wonderful visit at this inn. Staff is wonderful, food is awesome. I'm not sure which meal was my favorite--breakfast, lunch, or dinner--they were all excellent. (We would go back just for the food!) The gardens are beautiful and the inn very comfortable and welcoming. We met many nice and interesting guests and staff members. Someone was always... More

Not only is every meal you eat here terrific, but the helpful, friendly staff makes this family run inn extra special. We have nothing but praise for it. The inn can book you a Glacier Bay or Whale Watch trip, lends you bikes to ride, offers to drive you around and is very accommodating. Most everything foodwise is home grown... More

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
