A fabulous destination for those exploring the world of Alaska for the first time. Super management and staff in ever position, gourmet food, tremendous knowledge of all that is there to see, and yet a short distance from Juneau which is accomplished by small, single-engine planes. The property itself offers much to explore in terms of trails and beach destinations,...

This was our first time in Alaska and our stay at the Bear Track Inn could not have been more perfect. As much as we love the outdoors and nature, we love the creature comforts of hot showers, fluffy robes, great food & wine and oh-so-wonderful beds (ahhh--the pillows) just as much if not more. Janie and her staff provide...

At the end of a dirt road the Bear Track Inn is a very welcoming sight. The structure is amazing - you can spend a long time marvelling at how the logs all fit together. Our room was large and very comfortable. It was upstairs and at the back but we didn't have any noise. The large living area is...
