Meal time at the Inn was extremely enjoyable with great meals and selection. All staff were very friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Rooms were excellent. Comfortable, clean and... More

My wife and I stayed at Bear Track in July 2015. This is an exceptionally well run, comfortable, beautiful Inn, with excellent dining and very helpful staff. This will definitely be the place we will chose on our next trip to Alaska. Several standout aspects of our stay: The bed is incredibly comfortable--one of the all-time best we've ever slept...

This is the way to see Alaska! Let Janie schedule your day trips to see the best that Alaska has to offer. The inn then gets you where you want to go with all the gear (and lunch) that you need. The lodge itself is very comfortable and the dinners are great!

This was my second trip to The Bear Track Inn and it was as good, if not even better, than the first time. And my first experience four years ago was stellar! Janie, Mary and the staff couldn't be more accomodating or pleasant. I took my twin 18 year old boys for a trip before they head off to college... More

Food is excellent staff are great and the coordination to get you onto your tours are second to none. Four days met all of our requirements for what... More

We have stayed many years at the Glacier Bay Bear Track Inn and the beauty of the lodge and the location is unsurpassed! This is the real Alaska folks! Wonderful staff, comfortable rooms, and superb food. Gustavus is a charming town. Fishing, whale watching, Glacier Bay tours, Kayaking, or just relaxing in the lodge, you can't go wrong.

I enjoyed my time at the Bear Track Inn so much I want to move there. I recommended that my boss and his family stay there and I'm taking my wife back up there for our own vacation later this summer. There is so much to do, what with the National Park, fishing, boating, hiking, sightseeing, swimming. Something for everyone... More

One year late - but that memorable! We stayed at the BearTrak in June 2014 and loved every moment of the incredible hospitality we received. Jamie connected our family with wonderful local tour guides to insure our short visit was nothing short of spectacular. The food was fresh, creative and delicious. The rooms were well appointed and cozy. Fantastic memories... More

We recently returned from a 23 day trip to Alaska and certainly one of the highlights was three nights spent at Bear Track. Janie and staff were fantastic. The Inn was just about at the end of their season and yet we were greeted by all with enthusiasm. Several of the nights there were only four or six of us... More
