A true gem in the wilderness. A 14 room log cabin lodge run by Jane Olney Sheahan whose husband designed the lodge and had it built in Canada before dismantling and having sent by barge and rebuilt in Alaska. All room are large. You are treated as family. Jane, son and staff do everything to accomodate your every wish. They... More

So lovely to find such a charming place (building and property) and such a wonderful service in such a remote area. Thanks Jen for maintaining such a beatiful place and take so good care of the ones that visit you (your afternnon tea is a true bless for the senses). Love from Maria and Jose Portugal

Glacier Bay's Bear Track Inn is a ***wonderful*** place. Janie, who is the owner of the Inn, is a very gracious hostess: she emails you ahead of your trip and greets everyone personally when you arrive. She is very knowledgable about the area and was very helpful in helping us plan out and get to all of the wonderful things... More

Spent three nights at this wonderful lodge very close to Glacier Bay in Alaska. Beautifully appointed, large rooms, excellent food and staff who could not do enough to make sure you had a great time. Innkeeper Janie fixed everything...from the light engined plane that brought me from Juneau over the mountains (seeing mountain goats on the snowline on the way),... More

The Bear Track Inn has to be the ultimate Alaskan adventure inn. You wouldn't expect such a beautiful lodge providing 5 star service in such a remote area such as Gustavus. The food they prepare is amazing, they are on top of everybody's itinerary, and Jane (who runs the Inn) personally greets you with a review of your next day's... More

If you go to Glacier Bay National Park, this is the place to stay! The Inn is one of the most impressive places you can stay. The log lobby with a nice fire almost makes you not want to leave. The staff is outstanding, and with only 14 rooms you will receive all the attention you want. The dining experience... More

The Bear Track Inn is one amazing place. A beautifully constructed and serene log cabin lodge with wonderful accommodations and incredible meals and service awaits you in tiny Gustavus, AK. We stayed for 5 nights in August 2011 for a very stress-reducing, wildlife-filled, laid-back time. Janie (the owner) arranged activities for us w/wonderful salt-water and fresh-water fishing guides, and the... More

Janie the owner and her staff are truly outstanding for service & food for this somewhat remote Inn-the property itself is beautiful and we had a very relaxing and enjoyable time-Janie's knowledge with the local fishing & sight seeing guides were so helpful-she arranged everything that we wanted to do and made it so easy for us-all the staff is...
