We (five of us) stayed here. Accommodations were fine. The food was excellent. Fishing was o.k. Captain Rob was ignorant and rude to all of us. We were supposed to fish 7:30 to 3:00, but brought us back in at 2:00 one day because he had an appointment in Juneau. I can not say strongly enough that I will never... More

We (5 friends) stayed with Rob and Marie in June of 2013 at the Growley Bear Lodge and went fishing everyday with Rob.

Stayed here and fished with Rob. Great time and enjoyed the hospitality. Marie is a fantastic cook! We will be returning. Ask for the mac and cheese. I think you are supposed to lose weight on an adventure, instead we gained!

Stayed with the Growley Bear Lodge and had a great time. We initially signed up for just the Bed and Breakfast but the chef (Eddie) changed our minds quickly. The accomodations were great, the food was awesome, and the value was outstanding. They (the staff) made us feel like family. Would highly recommend staying there to anyone. Perry C.
