    This is the only accommodation inside the national park, though I believe that there is another hotel and at least one B&B in Gustavus (a town of two roads). This lodge was built in the 1960s, and the furnishings have not been updated since, it would seem. The rooms are all twin beds (at least, ours is, and when I called and asked for another, I was told that is all there is.) No one warns you about this in advance. We would have stayed here anyway, probably, but the advance info is not very complete. The lodge dining room has a fairly limited menu, but the food is quite good. The service is very slow. There is a buffet breakfast available every day, so if you're going on the boat trip (HIGHLY recommended!), you don't have to worry about missing the launch due to slow service in the restaurant. Lots of programs.

    The lodge is nothing fancy but in a great location. We enjoyed the dinner on the outer deck and the sunset was beautiful. The staff are kind. in the The room were simple. The lodge had wireless but did not work. We also included a boat tour on the trip and that was awesome, even though we ran aground. Loves the park staff. Big shout out to Ranger Emma Johnson. Thanks for taking care of us!

    On Thursday we took the Glacier Bay boat tour offered by the lodge. The tour boat left from the dock down the hill from the lodge and travelled all the way to the head of the bay, passing lots of marine life as well as beautiful inlets, with valleys obviously formed by the glaciers that either were still there or were recently there. Some of the …

    After daylight was already an hour old, we joined this day at 0500 for a rapid departure on the flood current up to the head of this inlet. A Norwegian cruise ship was already casting its shadow over our anchorage, awaiting the park interpreter who would join the ship for the day.

    We were well up the inlet before they got under ...
