A fabulous destination for those exploring the world of Alaska for the first time. Super management and staff in ever position, gourmet food, tremendous knowledge of all that is there to see, and yet a short distance from Juneau which is accomplished by small, single-engine planes. The property itself offers much to explore in terms of trails and beach destinations,... More

We were in Gustavus to see Glacier Bay National Park. Stayed two nights at the Bear Track inn and LOVED it. The Inn is run by a wonderful woman (Janie) who, along with her husband and children built the lodge from the ground up. The staff are just great, the inn is beautiful and the scenery is fantastic. My wife... More

I wan't sure what to expect of Bear Track, and boy, was I pleased with my experience. From the time I was picked up at the airport, my every need and desire was attended to. The staff was so attentive after I got home I wrote them all personally to thank them. I recommend the front facing rooms. The view... More

This was our first time in Alaska and our stay at the Bear Track Inn could not have been more perfect. As much as we love the outdoors and nature, we love the creature comforts of hot showers, fluffy robes, great food & wine and oh-so-wonderful beds (ahhh--the pillows) just as much if not more. Janie and her staff provide... More

The Bear Track Inn is a great location to be the hub for all your southeast Alaska adventures -- way better than a cruise ship!! Amazing food, terrific service, hospitality and helpfulness beyond compare! Janie, the owner, helps you plan your excursions before you come and then stops by every night to explain your plans for the next day -... More

This beautiful lodge is secluded yet offers you easy access to all that Glacier Bay has to offer. The owner, Janie, and her staff are on top of every detail to make arrangements and transport you to any activity you are interested in doing. Janie is a wealth of information about all the options in the area. The atmosphere is... More

At the end of a dirt road the Bear Track Inn is a very welcoming sight. The structure is amazing - you can spend a long time marvelling at how the logs all fit together. Our room was large and very comfortable. It was upstairs and at the back but we didn't have any noise. The large living area is... More
