A MUST SEE ….and our all time favorite in Southeast Alaska. !! The Bear Track Inn is situated on the tranquil shores of Gustavus in Glacier Bay National Park. The deluxe lodge provides exquisite accommodations, scrumptious meals as well as true Alaskan ambience and hospitality. Magnificent handcrafted log construction with only 14 rooms. Each room features private bath, 2 queen beds, goose down comforter, deluxe 200 tread count sheets, desk, chairs and trestle bench. The lobby with its huge circular fireplace is the focal point of the Lodge - stretching 30 feet from floor to ceiling - and offers inspiring views of streams, wildlife, mountains, forests, meadows, and of Icy Strait. Wilderness abounds from windows throughout the lodge. Dining is an experience by itself: Choose between four to six entrees that could include steak, salmon, halibut, pork tenderloin, chicken, musk ox, caribou and vegetarian dishes. If this does not tempt your tastes buds, there will also be nightly specials, such as Halibut Parmesan, Excursion Halibut, Salmon in Parchment, or many other Inn specialties. Combine this with Alaskan favorites such as fresh Dungeness Crab, Alaskan Spotted Prawns, seafood soups and salads, homemade breads, freshly made dressings, and finish with dazzling desserts. It's a dinner to remember. During your stay you can hike into Glacier Bay National Park and see seldom viewed waterfalls, bears, moose, or wolves. Take a salt water fishing trip for barn-door sized halibut and hard-hitting salmon. You can choose to be dropped off on a deserted beach with six other brave souls to create a self-guided bike trip.
