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

Beautiful cabin in wooded area. He provided bikes and we rode to the little store, and saw 2 moose on the side of the road. There were delicious wild strawberries to pick in the fields. 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

We stayed in a cabin at "Cottonwood" for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Frank, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful and suggested walks that we really enjoyed. The cabin was roomy, extremely clean and comfortable, and it was great having use of the very well equiped kitchen. The area is beautifully quiet, the only sounds you hear... More

We enjoyed our two weeks in Cottonwood Lodge. We were greeted with warm hospitality and friendly advice from Frank and Anne. Our cabin was cozy, roomy, clean and quiet. We had a queen bed and a well-equipped kitchen. Frank was very helpful and informative, ready to assist with tours or charters you may be interested in. We were located off... 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

Gustavus is a very charming town unlike any tourist places. Staying at Cottonwood really helped us get the local feel. We stayed for two nights. The owner, Frank, is more than nice. He was very helpful and accomodating. In fact, the whole town is. I have not been in a place like this in the U.S. We got there by... More

Our visit was much as the previous reviewer described -- great! Owner Frank is a friendly, accommodating host who provided round trip transportation to and from the airport, as well as transportation to any activities (sea kayaking, Glacier Bay National Park boat tour) purchased through him. The cabins are set back just enough from the road, and are surrounded by... More

My wife and I stayed at the cottonwood lodge for 3 nights. We chose this place as an alternative to the glacier bay lodge which most people stay at, as we were seeking a "getaway from the masses" type of vacation (this was just the impression I got from my short visit to the lodge and some reviews I read...
