Great place to stay! The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, and it was very peaceful and relaxing. The food was amazing, some of the best I have ever eaten. I will definitely return and encourage you to go too!!

The Bear Track Inn is clean and comfortable with very helpful staff. Food was excellent and memorable. There is a nice trail to the water's edge taking the hiker through a range of local flora to the tidal area where one my see elk or certainly their hoof prints as well as those of bears. I highly recommend this Inn. The experience could hardly be improved upon.
Be aware that the Inn expects but does not require, tipping at checkout for the service staff, and also that during our visit, August 2018, we saw evidence online that the property may have been listed for sale. (As others note, the WiFi is spotty, and my one other observation is that the Inn is still using glaring incandescent chandelier base light bulbs in many of its fixtures. The Inn could be a little greener and easier on visitors' eyes if it replaced these with filament LEDs. Filament LEDs with chandelier base have been on the US market for nearly two years and use about 1/9th the electricity required by comparable incandescent bulbs.)

Thank you for your review, we are delighted you had great experience. It is our goal that all of our guests have a trip to remember and want to return. The lodge has been for sale for several years, however, I will make sure anyone booking with us will receive the same hospitality that we have been known for. WiFi is spotty, we are in the bush. You are absolutely correct about being green. We are replacing all our bulbs with LEDs when they need replacing, but due to the number of chandeliers, this is a work in progress. They are, however, on dimmers. Thank you for your concern.

We could not have had a better time on our first visit to Alaska. Janie helped with all our excursions, often finding rates below advertised. The lodge is very comfortable and has plenty to keep all ages and activity levels happy. Rooms are spacious and quiet. The scenery is beautiful and varies from seaside to scenic mountain vistas. Many thanks to the friendly staff - special hug for Bandit!

We enjoyed our stay as we always do. Everyone was very helpful and provided top quality service. Always had a feeling that they were thinking of helping the guests and did a wonderful job. Just a great setting for relaxing and enjoying a beautiful setting.

Our family of five met in Alaska from the East and West coasts of the lower 48 for a special celebration. We all loved Glacier Bay’s Bear Track Inn. The owner and staff were lovely and took very good care of us. The food was creative and delicious, and the inn was a work of art. We are very glad we were able to have such a wonderful experience and will cherish our memories of being there.
