Reviewed 20 August 2016

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...

RT, thank you for your great review. It is expensive here because almost everything is flown in, but the $600 included r/t transportation from Juneau, meals and lodging as well as transportation to any activities booked with us. If you stay longer the rate decreases to about $425 for 2 days, $415 for 3 days and so on. We are...

I was in Alaska to discover it for 2 months and the Bear Track Inn was the most outstanding place I stayed! The amenities were gracious, spectacular and the food unbeatable. Thank you for this most beautiful place - I hope to be back!

Janie and her staff make you feel like you are staying at their house while you are at the Bear Track Inn. The food is delicious and all homemade. The rooms are comfortable and the lodge is quiet. No need to even have a room key! We came with another family and all together had 4 boys ages 11-14. The...

This was a very nice place to be. The staff made you feel better than at home. The food was excellent. They made arrangements for several tours and made sure we got to and from them. If we are ever in the area we will be sure to stay again.

All of the staff were very helpful with a few being exceptional. Emily, Bambi and Wolfe went out of their way. From making sure that I didn't get left out on any treats due to my gluten intolerance or making my 50th birthday celebration a beautiful memory at the lodge. They were great in setting up excursions wanting you to...

We had planned a wonderful balance of daily excursions ( whale watching, kayaking and glacier bay cruise) with relaxation. Janey, the inn keeper is a wonderful coordinator while all the staff are eager to please including the inn owner's dog named Bandit.

I am pleased to hear that your Alaskan vacation was a memorable one. The wilderness surrounding the Bear Track is great for viewing wildlife, and I am so glad that you were able to experience this first hand. Bandit is somewhat of a lodge mascot.. he is certainly a charmer! It is great that you enjoyed both he and the...

The problem could be me....from reviews, I expected this to be located on much higher ground near the bay with many interesting hiking and excursion choices nearby. Instead, it is located on relatively flat ground at the edge of a very wet, tangled (and bug filled) meadow approximately a mile from the water and no where near any high ground...

I am so sorry that you were disappointed, but thank you for your review. There are 40 acres of wetlands in front of the lodge where guests often see moose, bear, and all sorts of bird species. Directly behind us is a great trail that leads to Excursion Ridge to two beautiful waterfalls. Excursion Ridge curves around to the east...

Great to spend time in the rural setting of Bear Track Inn, yet enjoying all the home comforts of great bedrooms, scrumptious meals and lounge with great views and cosy couches. Transport provided to all places of interest requested to see.
