We spent 4 very peaceful nights here. The cabin was extremely clean with everything you could want. Frank was very helpful and obliging even when the ferry schedule was altered. He is willing to book any local tours for you & will drop & pick you up. The use of the bikes was a big plus for us to get... More

literally. A perfect get-away-from-it-all place with limited phone reception and no internet. Small but complete with cooking facilities and accommodating owner who provides transport to/from ferry or airport and to Glacier Bay tours if you book through him. Bicycles are available for use. Good location approximately 1 mile from "center" of Gustavas. Brought our own provisions, bought some local fish... More

Our experience at the Cottonwood Lodge and Cabins was wonderful. Frank picked us up at the ferry and our adventure began. Frank was very helpful and informative. He took us through the town of Gustavus and told us when the coffee shop, restaurants and the store was located. We booked kayaking and a Glacier Bay tour through Frank and he... More

Frank provided transportation to and from the ferry, he also set up reservations for our wonderful boat tour to glacier bay and provided our transportation.... More

We stayed in a cabin here for three nights during our visit to Glacier Bay and couldn't have enjoyed it more. The cabins are clean and light, and well placed within the trees so you feel like you have your own little slice of the Alaskan forest! High ceilings, lots of windows -- my mother liked it so much that... More

It was a fabulous cabin and Frank, the owner, was extremely friendly, accommodating, and helpful. Also told us about a nice trail right in town which was not visited by anyone when we were there. Because we brought our own car we never asked Frank to chauffer us around but we saw him taking other guests to/from the ferry. Nonetheless,... More
