Bear Track inn was one of our best places to stay on our 3 week trip to Alaska. Everyone at the inn was so friendly and made our stay very enjoyable!

This was our forth visit to this family owned and operated rustic log facility, designed by the husband and still operated by his wife Janie. SERVICE is th official motto of this Inn. From arranging your arrival and departure, by ferry or aircraft, to acquiring tickets for the National Park Bay tour boat, setting up whale watching or halibut fishing,...

A gigantic pleasure to experience the real Alaska of Bear Track Inn. The stunning setting, mud road and rain included, the staff of uncomplicated people enjoying and helping people, made it seem like going to camp. Love the wellies lined up for pleasure and wonderful meals included.

This was one of the best places I stayed. Very homey and the staff was the best. Everyone wanted to help in any way possible, and they also made sure the excursions were booked and that you got the most out of your excursion by giving you tips you would not have known about.

Bear Track Inn is the best place to stay in Alaska. Whether you want to fish, kayak, go whale watching, visit the glaciers or just relax. The Bear Track Inn staff will schedule everything for you. The staff is wonderful and the meals are delicious.

Great place. The owner and staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. A lovely, family atmosphere. The staff were delightfully enthusiastic and made coming back to the inn feel like you were coming home. The food was great. We especially loved the scones and the biscuits and gravy each morning. The mushroom pate was also out...

I stayed at the Bear Track Inn for three nights in early August. Took day trips all but the last day. The Inn is off the beaten path, even for this tiny town and quite expensive at $600 per person per day (plus fees to get there). That is, however, the only downside to the Inn. Staff are attentive and...
