This space is about basic functionality - not sparkly clean hospitality. Imagine "one step above camping" due to rustic amenities and no running water in the cabin itself. Nextdoor are two private toilets with only cold water in the sink, one hot shower, washer/ dryer, and utility sink with hot water. The cabin is just one room with a queen bed, one couch that pulls into a full bed, two twins, and basic kitchen amenities (microwave, fridge, hot plate, coffee maker.)
Located on an old golf course with wild strawberries right outside (in season), and a spectacular view of the Fairweather Mountain Range on a clear day. Private (with other shared cabin), woodsy location but still near center of town. No wifi at the cabin, but it is available at multiple locations in mid-town about a mile away. Additionally, you'll have limited cell service at the cabins.
Travis' grandparents homesteaded the land these cabins are on and our children are sixth generation Gustavus residents. We are avid travelers, but love the sense of community here and can't imagine calling anywhere else our home.
  • The cabin is a lot more spacious than it appears to be. I didn't expect to have as many amenities that were provided. Fantastic Hosts and and a wonderful stay. Highly recommended.

  • The cabins are nicely located close to the ferry pier. We could go around by the bikes provided, what was very convenient. The cabin was super clean as well as the bathroom & toilet. Incredible sunset views and privacy were a great plus. The cosy cabins corresponded exactly to what we were expecting. We will definitely stay again here.

  • The cabin is very spacious and cozy, a kettle and a coffee maker, a place for a fire, a free one is great, huge windows! Erin even allowed me to stay until the evening plane, because no one stopped by after me! Very noble! It’s a pity that I never met bears or elks, but it’s so quiet and healthy in the area that there’s no room for chagrin! But the trip to Glacier Bay was not very impressed.

  • The owners are super nice. This place is definitely worth staying.

  • What a great deal to explore a fun town! A group of us came up for a long weekend and the cabins made it that much better. Travis & Erin were incredibly responsive to all of my questions beforehand, had bikes available, and made the place great. I would recommend booking both cabins, if available, as it was great to have the extra space and not have to worry about bothering any neighbors. The cabins were a short walk from the ferry terminal but I would recommend having a car in Gustavus to get out to Glacier Bay as it is quite a long bike ride. Beaches and trails are very convenient and we found the locals to be exceptionally nice! We would definitely return again.

  • Just a short walk from the ferry terminal...super easy directions...even my dumb ass figured it out. Gracious hosts. Bicycles for your use...no need to lock them up...Chuckle...I’m from Los Angeles and this was a breath of fresh air. Coffee shop down the road at 4 corners within walking or bike distance. $15 cab ride (9ish miles) to the National Park Service Lodge where you can get the day boat to Glacier National Park. Ask the driver to stop at Toshco so you can get some groceries on the way back from the boat...be aware stuff is expensive out in the hinter lands so you may want to bring grub from Juneau with you. Budget rentals is way perfect and gives one a wee sense of Alaska. Separate bath/shower...not in rooms. I can’t say enough really great things about this place and these gracious hosts. STAY HERE instead of staying at the rather spendy lodge. 8-). I had 3g cell service on Verizon.

  • The place was as described. Simple yet had all the basics. We caught a beautiful sunset from the property and our hosts are definitely "superhosts" because they indeed made sure our stay was great!

Private cabin with large covered entryway, parking, and a great view of the Fairweather Mountains. Main room has one queen bed, full kitchen, & a small table.  A cot is available, but it takes up all floor space when used. A full bathroom includes a washer and dryer. Bicycles for use during your stay. No cell service, Wifi, or phone in cabin!
    Wild strawberries and historic golf course equipment in the fields right outside.
    Safe and friendly. Be sure to wave to people around town!
  • Great space and excellent view of the sunset!

    Bobby2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • We have loved our stay in this beautiful and well-equipped cabin. The sunsets and sunrises have been stunning. The moonrise equally beautiful. The weather and the landscape amazing and the silence awe-inspiring. Awesome. Wow! Thank You!

    David2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Fairweather cabin is darling. Built in a clearing where there had been a golf course. Spectacular meadow and mountain views! It has a full kitchen, bathroom , and washer/dryer. Bikes were under our covered front porch for us to use and we enjoyed riding them down to the beach at sunset several evenings. Cabin was clean and our stay was so peaceful.

    Cheryl2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent experience, one of those that you kinda' don't want to brag about because you're afraid this place will be booked the next time you want to go to Gustavus! Close proximity to "Four Corners" and the ferry dock, bikes available to move around the island, and a warm, clean place to come back to after a day out in Glacier Bay. Highly recommended, if this location is available for your desired dates, then book it ASAP. Not a lot of great options on the island, but this one will work for any solo traveler or couple.

    Bart2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy little cabin just as expected from advertising. Bikes gave easy access to the Fireweed Cafe for great coffee and cafe. Enjoyable visit!

    Jenny2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place. Fantastic views, better than expected bed, bathroom and kitchen. They also had a couple of bikes that were perfect for getting around town.

    Mike2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place close to the beach!!

    Chesley2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Pretty isolated cabin but recently updated and quite nice. About an hour bike ride from glacier national park and in the town of Gustavus. The hosts provided bikes, which was a great for getting around as everything is quite spaced out and not really walking distance.

    4 Corners Glacier Bay Cottage in Gustavus caters to the independent traveler. This small two-story house is conveniently located at the 4-Corners in the center of Gustavus, yet is very private and rural. Outside your window you'll find a horse and a donkey in our pasture, plus spruce and willow trees. It is a very short walk to the health food store / deli, grocery store and a café / gallery as well as to a quiet river, ocean beach, and hiking trail. On the first floor of the cottage is a full kitchen/living room (stove and microwave; table and couch) plus a full bathroom, including a tub, plus a washer/dryer. The second story is a bedroom with a double bed and a single bed. The sofa in the living room also converts into a double bed. There are games and books for your use. Available for your use are bicycles for biking the flat roads leading from beach to forest and to Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. There is also a local taxi available, and bus service to Glacier Bay National Park which is 10 miles away. Your long-time Gustavus hosts Kate (artist) and Fritz (boat builder) are happy to help you enjoy this special place, which includes a Public Library, several art studios, excellent fishing, beach walking, trails, and roads to travel. Wireless internet is available for an hourly fee at the cottage and for free at the local Library. There are weekly opportunities to join musical groups singing and playing instruments at the gallery and in the Library, as well as at times in people's homes. Instruments are available for loan. Just ask your host!
  • A gReAt place to stay!!! Park directly across from the cute retro gas station.

    Leslie2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • The Cabin is perfectly located, warm and private. Kate and Fritz are fantastic hosts. I’d highly recommend the Cabin to anyone visiting Gustavus.

    Katrina2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • An idyllic dream cabin perfect for a relaxing stay and exploring Glacier Bay! We found everything in the cabin was practical and catered to our needs, from the well equipped kitchen we were able to cook meals (we bought some fresh salmon from Peps Packing just a short bike ride away that was delicious cooked on the stove) and we loved relaxing on the porch after a long day hiking in the nearby national park. The location is perfect with the local cafe across the road and Toshco’s supermarket another short bike ride away- yes the prices are slightly high for groceries there but that’s to be expected in such a remote location! We also managed to keep costs down by buying local produce -fresh vegetables from the roadside veg store, look out for it on the road to Toshco. Kate was also amazing, great communication and helpful tips to ensure we made the most of our stay! We also loved the bikes provided for sunset rides to the beach and for exploring around town! We would highly recommend Kates place for couples and small family’s/groups wanting an authentic experience in Gustavus!

    Holly2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Kate is a very gracious host who made us feel most welcome. Her place is centrally located making it very convenient. The cabin is on the smallish side which suited us just fine. It had everything we needed to make a good home base while we explored Gustavus. We enjoyed having use of the bicycles very much. Our time in Gustavus was magical and we are looking forward to returning one day.

    Martin2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Kate is great

    Kristin2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Kate is delightfully exuberant and welcoming. She gave us lots of tips on what to do around Glacier Bay, including where moose and bears had been seen most recently around town. The cottage is adorable, and we loved being surrounded by flowers and hummingbirds. The donkeys and Kate's dog were fun neighbors, though the donkeys were a bit shy. We did wish there were screens on more of the windows. We ended up renting a car once Kate told us it was a possibility, and I think it would be hard to get around without one, at least without spending much of your time walking or biking to your destinations. The location was great, but everything is very spread out. There is a coffee shop and restaurant right across the street, but the national park, hiking trails, beaches, etc. are all a ways away. The restaurant scene in Gustavus is, unsurprisingly, not great. It was nice to have a kitchen, but I would highly recommend bringing groceries from Juneau if possible. We had planned to take the ferry but it was closed for a strike while we were there. The grocery store was low on supplies because of the ferry strike, but even when it isn't, it sells Costco-sized groceries, so you'll end up buying enough jam for a year. Glacier Bay is amazing, and Kate's cottage was a comfortable and welcoming home base.

    Rachel2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing find! For my money, Kate’s cottage is the best place to stay in Gustavus. Gustavus was the highlight of our Alaska trip and Kate’s cottage made it all the more enjoyable. Most other places near the park are all-inclusive, but if you want more flexibility Kate’s is the way to go. You have the entire cottage to yourself (Kate is just ~50ft away in her place). The place is set up almost like a studio apt: downstairs is a kitchen/living room with bathroom (good sized, good water pressure, washer/dryer for use). Upstairs is the bedroom. The ceilings are angled and a little low so you do have to watch your head. There’s one queen (?) bed, one cot, and one twin. Realistically, I’d say 2 adults max. For my wife and I, it was perfect. Kate was super flexible about check in/out times. She has tons of packets/guides/brochures for things in the area. That was especially helpful for the only cafe and restaurant in town, because their hours were often different from what Google said. There are also bikes that you can use to get around town a little bit but if you’re going to the park and want some freedom to hike around I would suggest renting a car from Bud. Cabs are really expensive and can be hard to get ahold of if you in the park.

    Michael2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • I planned a trip for my dad (who speaks very little English) to Gustavus and he loved Kate's place and all the help Kate provided, whether it was giving us info about the local things to do before arriving or help with transportation and local knowledge once he got there. Couldn't have asked for better service and place to stay!

    The Blue Bucket B&B is nestled amidst towering spruce, pine & cottonwood. It looks out over a meadow that is frequented by black bears, moose & eagles. Though secluded in trees, surrounded by nature and a skip away from the Salmon river, you are still close to the beach, pier, local stores, library and local trails. You can bike or walk easily to any of these locations. Our home is very charming, warm, and cozy. We offer free transportation to and from the airport and the ferry.
    The house comes furnished with a shared living room space, a kitchen, and washer and dryer. There is a piano for our musical aficionados as well as a guitar. There is a wood burning stove and place for outdoor evening fires. Wood is available for your use. There are also bikes for your use.
    The neighborhood is quiet but can get busy especially during the 4th of July festivities. We are close to the Salmon River Park, the fire station, and basically everything else since the town is two roads. You'll enjoy the locals. They're great.
  • Robyn’s hospitality was extraordinary. We felt comfortable and cared for. Lovely place - Lovely host - Lovely experience! We are very grateful for the rides from and to the ferry!

    Isabel2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Robynn and her family were super sweet. Right on time to pick me up from the ferry, they also drove me to the resort the next day and offered me any other ride I needed. They were very available and let me use the kitchen, offered their food and called the local shop to make sure I could buy my beloved smoked salmon. The bike provided were a life saver and they suggested great trails and tips on Gustavus (be aware, this isn't a small city, it is literally an aggregation of few houses but well worthy for Glacier bay). Make sure to go by the dock around 5pm when the fishermen comes back to watch the sea lions feeding on fish scraps (and while there, give a hand to the fishermen tying the boats!). I deeply enjoyed chatting with Robynn's dad and her granddaughters were very nice too! I would surely recommend it and come back :)

    Valeria2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, my only regret is that we didn't spend more time in Gustavus so we could more thoroughly enjoy staying at Robynn's place. It was really an outstanding experience. She gave us great tips on where to eat and what to do and see. The beds were super comfortable, the bathroom was clean and had plenty of towels for our group. We made tea and enjoyed cookies Robynn baked in the kitchen. Overall an amazing experience!

    Stephanie2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • I would give 6 stars if I could! We're so glad to have picked Robynn's home for our visit to Gustavus/Glacier Bay National Park, and we'd definitely stay here again if we return to the area. The home itself is beautiful, spacious and very clean; you can tell that Robynn and her family really care for it. It's situated just off one of the main roads in town and there are several bicycles that Robynn encouraged us to take to explore the area. We took them down to the beach the evening we arrived, and also took them to the cafe down the street for delicious crepes + coffee in the morning. There's also a plane wreckage within biking distance that we wanted to explore but, unfortunately, we ran out of time. But what truly stood out was the hospitality! Robynn picked us up from the airport, showed us around the town, and even had freshly baked chocolate chip cookies waiting for us after our first evening's bike ride! She also dropped us off at our tour the next morning, which was leaving at 7 AM from the Glacier Bay Lodge, and she gave us suggestions for things around the lodge that we could do after the tour. Robynn really went above and beyond to make us feel like home!

    Andrei2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • The home on its own deserves 5 stars, but with Robynn as your host, there’s just not enough stars to give! Gustavus is a beautiful little town, and Robynn made it feel like home. Right from picking us up at the airport, to giving us a tour of the town, to welcoming us home with freshly baked cookies - Robynn and her family are the perfect hosts. Trust me, this is a one-of-a-kind experience, and I can’t recommend it highly enough!
