An AMAZING Alaskan Experience.
Accommodations were extremely clean and comfortable. Both the lodge and the small cabins are beautiful and have a cozy bed and breakfast feel. The property is kept beautifully clean and is nestled in the middle of the Gustavus southeast Alaskan rain forest with beautiful meadows of wild flowers on one side and thick green mossy woods on the other. Absolutely beautiful!
The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. The hostess was especially sweet and very helpful in keeping us on our schedule for our planned activities each day. The staff was always to be found and always looking to help make us comfortable.
The food was absolutely incredible!! The first night we arrived we had the most amazing dinner and that continued throughout every night of our trip! Every breakfast included hot breakfast of some type as well as fresh fruit and other options as well. Lunches were conveniently packed for us to take along on our planned daily activities and always included a delicious sandwich on fresh baked bread and snacks as well.
Gustavus is THE place for an Alaskan experience. Its is a tiny town with one road and less than 200 residents and only accessible by boat or plane. It is incredibly beautiful and there is some much to do. We went fishing with guides on a fishing boat in the bay and caught enough Halibut to last us through the rest of the year! Another day another friendly guide took us up mud river fly fishing and were caught and released big dolly vartons all day long and hiked through some beautiful back country landscapes.
The day cruise up Glacier Bay was great too. We were able to see lots of wildlife including, tons of different birds, sea lions, sea otters, lots of humpback whales, lots of bald eagles, brown bears, black bears, and mountain goats. We were able to watch the glacier as pieces cracked and fell into the ocean. Its was a great experience.
Overall this was a trip that I would recommend to anyone and everyone.
