We absolutely loved this place. Very clean and comfortable! Everyone on staff was super friendly and made us feel welcome. Not to mention the fishing and whale watching was amazing! Highly recommend to anyone wanting to experience Alaska!
How do you write an impartial review when you feel like family after you leave. Glacier Bay Country Inn is a magical place. The staff, all of them are absolutely incredible. Curtis is the master at the helm providing all of our group a wonderful...More
This place was perfect for our party. We had 13 people in our group and that was a challenge for everybody. The staff handled us with a professional manner. We our questions answered before we arrived. Curtis was great at providing us time and transportation...More
I have stayed at the Glacier Bay Country Inn twice now and thoroughly enjoyed each time. Jim and Curtis set up our fishing excursions as per our requests (we did things a little out of the ordinary) just as we had hoped. When there was...More
Gustavus - I have been to several parts of AK (mostly around Anchorage) like Kenai, Seward, Soldotna, and fished a lot of the Kenai river and halibut in Homer and loved it. However, there is something special about Gustavus in general. That place calls to...More

Hi Roger, Glacier Bay is a fantastic place to visit! I stayed at the Glacier Bay Country Inn. It is different and in my opinion much better than the lodge. They provide room and board as well as some excursion packages that can be visited on their website. (Google Search for Glacier Bay Country INN) We had our own private cabin which helped with the feel of a far away alaskan get away I was after! (I still had some creature comforts though) We went out on their boat for some halibut fishing and also to view and kayak the glaciers located about a 90 minute boat ride away. Those trips are breathtaking, fun and not strenuous at all! They were very familiar with the many trails and their degree of difficulty around the area. We hiked a few trails that were pretty fun and not hard at all. One along the banks of a river feeding the bay. I would not consider them backpacking trips but we carried day packs with just water and lunch. The Country Inn packed our lunch and snacks those days as well! The food at the country Inn is also fantastic and the chef includes you in planning a menu to satisfy your cravings. We saw bear every night from the dining room and bald eagles flew around and allowed for some great pictures! The Country Inn also has a great theatre for movies or whatever you would like to view via satellite. They started a fire at night for us on the deck and we sat in the spa and relaxed in the evening as well. They anticipated our needs and had many ideas for fun along the way! I highly recommend everyone visit the Glacier Bay Country Inn!! Hope that helps you out! Let me know how it goes, I'd love to hear how your trip goes! -Jared
