We were at The Bear Track in August, 2013. We made our reservations almost a year in advance. It was a beautiful place and we were there for four days. The service was fantastic and they really cater to their guests. I have Celiac disease and the chef James was a jewel for how he accommodated my special needs. Every... More

Best Bed &Breakfast Inn in Gustavas. Grand log cabin hotel run by a cheerful staff that greets you at the airport, takes your luggage and takes care of your every need until you leave. The cuisine is to die for. Our room was huge. The beds were dreamy. Our only complaint was no TV or Wireless. Of course, it is... More

Absolutely gorgeous lodge in total isolation in beautiful Alaska. Wonderful food, dependable, friendly staff. There is a nice hiking trail behind the lodge, and the owner let us take her Alaskan Malamute with us to ward off bears and moose. They have a shuttle service to take you where you need to go. Glacier Bay is beautiful, and staying at... More

My family spent 2 lovely days at the Bear Track Inn and wish we could have stayed longer. The setting of the lodge is beautiful with spectacular views, and the rooms are large and very comfortable. Janie, the owner, and the entire staff were exceptionally helpful and offered excellent advice on activities. It was so relaxing to have all meals... More

Our time at Bear Track was just too short. Janie is the most gracious hostess & made all our arrangements for a wonderful stay. The staff was so accomodating and the lodge itself a real work of art: tastefully Alaskan with no kitsch. We had some extraordinary wildlife viewing and are still wondering if they are able to "whisper" to... More

We have just spent 4 days in the Lodge, great service, good meals, great choice of beer and wines. Set on a wonderful bay with views of the national park and the sea. Great walks from the lodge but the team can also organise a raft of trips to the whales, the glaciers and fishing. Mobile access is intermittent but... More

My wife and I stayed at the Bear Track, and every aspect of our stay was exquisite. The innkeeper, Janie, is a gem; friendly, hard working, knowledgeable, kind, organized. The inn itself is a beautiful log cabin, with a beautiful open fireplace in the lobby. Our room was perfect, with terrific bedding. And the food--the gourmet chef, James, and his... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at Bear Track Inn. The lodge is really comfortable and atmospheric and the staff do a great job making you feel welcome.

The Bear Track Inn is, as far as I can tell, the premier lodging in Gustavus, at the base of Glacier Bay. Glacier Bay is not to be missed as it seems to be the pinnacle of the entire Inside Passage area and it can all be reasonably enjoyed in just a few days. Bear Track Inn is perfectly comfortable...

The Bear Track Inn is a very comfortable lodge in a scenic spot. SE Alaska is full of cruise ships and cruise ship types, the BTI is the perfect escape from all of that. It is a great base from which to explore the region. It situated at Gustavus which is a little rural village of some charm and on... More
