Glad we found this place as we arrived around 8:30pm to discover Logan still hard at work. He's most helpful and gave us a great deal on one of their large multi-rooms with kitchenette and living room. Logan goes above-and-beyond to accommodate your stay and he called one of the helicopter tour companies to reserve a slot for glacier flight in case the weather cleared up (which it never did). Very clean, very roomy, has it all, very relaxing. Just what we needed.
We could not have afforded to stay here with their normal prices, so receiving the deal made it much more palatable to the weak US Dollar.
Right next door to the quaint and excellent Alice May restaurant where we ate. A small town, so really any restaurant is within walking distance, but since it was nonstop raining, this was an even bigger draw to have next door!
