The entire house was clean and welcoming. The beds were very comfortable with total quiet at night. The breakfasts were... More

We exceedingly enjoyed our stay in this B&B, which is very nice, tidy and clean, surrounded by a green and well kept garden. There are two rooms with a common bathroom. You might think this is not very comfortable, but I can assure we found the situation absolutely fine, as the other guest was a very respectful person. Sally, the... More

She helped set up everything we wanted to do in Gustavus. The breakfast was wonderful. She has her own chickens wo the eggs were fresh. Her granola... More

This could really be called Homestead Bed, Breakfast and Bicycle. Bed was comfortable, breakfast was fabulous every morning, and the bicycles were a great way to explore the community. Sally was very welcoming--filled us in on the family history and made us feel very comfortable. The nearby Fireweed Gallery and Coffee shop were easy to get to, as was the... More

Sally could not have been more welcoming, the beds more comfortable nor the breakfasts more delicious! We made full use of the bikes Sally provided, took the day trip up Glacier Bay seeing wonderful wildlife. The highlight was, without a doubt, kayaking with the humpback whales, we didn't get very close but they were non the less a fantastic spectacle... More

We had a wonderful experience with Sally! After kayaking and bicycling with her bikes we were exhausted and loved the comfortable rooms. Then to wake up to the best meal we had in Alaska! The breakfast was homemade and homegrown and prepared with care. Sally made us feel right at home....with her grandson and animals...we loved it!

Visited Glacier Bay on my own one year, and stayed at Homestead. It was great, Tom and Sally gave me excellent advice and it was so comfortable that I came back to Glacier another year with my wife, and again had an excellent time. It is possible to use one of their bikes to Glacier Bay (a few miles), and... More
