The Gustavus Inn was a place that I would have wanted to stay for more than only two nights. The people there were just absolutely wonderful, and waited patiently for you to rise out of your comfortable bed, made your breakfast as soon as you ordered it. The cook was just as nice as everyone there. They also seat you...

This is a lovely inn in a gorgeous setting. The food is amazing with local seafood and veges from their own beautiful garden. Most impressive is the staff and ownership. Everyone is kind and helpful. We were unable to fly to Wrangell for the next leg of our trip and luckily they found room for us and Joann worked tirelessly...

Fresh air, quiet surroundings, delicious food served family style, conversation with people you just met who soon seem like old friends, and, oh yes, again the food. Much of it prepared on premises from local, seasonal products: halibut, salmon, sheefish, and crab from the sea, vegetables and flowers from the garden. Friendly, welcoming, competent proprietors, and staff, and so relaxing....

Dave and JoAnn are amazing innkeepers - they have it down to a science. Prior to our trip, Dave emailed and inquired about our interests and booked all of our excursions (whale watching with TAZ and the Glacier Bay cruise). They organize all of the transfers and have a large supply of bikes on the property in case you want...

Staying at the Gustavus in was just like a honeymoon each time we have stayed there. I think the highlight of the Gustavus send it to people you get to have meals with and the conversations that are encouraged. Not only is the food amazing, I love the rhubarb sauce. The gardens are amazing and David was ever so kind...

My son and I took a trip to Glacier Bay to celebrate his graduation from high school. It was unforgettable. Dave and the staff at the inn were unfailingly helpful, polite, and friendly. The food was tremendous. And the staff arranged great trips for us, which included fishing, kayaking, hiking, and biking. My son and I would go out early...

We have visited many times and agree with others' comments about the delicious food, excellent accommodations and coordination of various activities. But what really makes the Inn so outstanding is the genuine warmth and attention to detail by Dave and Joann. They remember and respond to your likes, comments and preferences. They do not hesitate to make extra efforts to...

Thanks for coming back to Alaska again. We alway look forward to hosting you. The weather did present some challenges this summer, and we love the chance to "turn it into a postitive", Happy travellers make it easy to go the extra mile and share your enjoyment. It was a great night in the end!

We had a wonderful visit at this inn. Staff is wonderful, food is awesome. I'm not sure which meal was my favorite--breakfast, lunch, or dinner--they were all excellent.
