Gustavus Inn Review

Built in 1928 and established as a hotel in 1965, this inn continues a tradition of gracious Alaska rural living. In the remodeled original homestead building, rooms are decorated in New England–farmhouse style. Outside, a large vegetable garden provides much of the dining room's food. Here you can indulge in Glacier Bay sightseeing trips, fishing expeditions, bicycle rides, and berry picking in season. There is a guest shuttle to the airport, activities, and Glacier Bay National Park. Guests can use the satellite TV and a telephone in the common area. The hosts heap bountiful servings of seafood on the plates of overnight guests (all meals are included in the lodging price) and others who reserve for family-style meals in the cozy award-winning dining room in advance. The hosts recently expanded the dining room to allow for more gracious serving and to open up views of the Icy Strait and the Salmon River meadows. Dinnertime is at 6:30 sharp.
