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

We stayed for 4 nights and 5 days at the Bear Track Inn in August 2014. I've had a couple of months to put the trip into perspective, and I can say that it a vacation my family will treasure forever. I find myself thinking back to so many special moments. You can only get to the inn and Glacier... More

The accommodations were immaculate, food was great and Janie and her team did a great job organizing all the activities. We went kayaking, took a... More

I loved the Bear Track Inn. Janie and her employees were so welcoming, by the time we left we felt like we were leaving family! The Inn is rustic looking, but don't let that fool you! The rooms are comfortable and well appointed (no television, but who needs that with all of the natural beauty to admire?), the huge great... More
