Le logement

The Gustavus Getaway is now closed for the winter. For the 2017 summer season, due to cleaning and management limitations, I am only able to rent long term. If you are interested in staying 2-4 weeks, write to me and I'll see what we can work out.
The Gustavus Getaway is a private house located in Gustavus, a small community in southeast Alaska, nestled at the entrance of Glacier Bay National Park. The house is easily accessible from Juneau by air taxi, jet, or ferry.

This wood paneled, 600 sq ft, two story, cozy cottage is in its own secluded corner, yet located in the heart of Gustavus. The cottage has a spacious, open, sunny interior with many windows. Fully furnished and equipped with most household items, there is a full kitchen with stove and microwave, full bath with a claw foot tub, and washer/dryer. A queen size bed and twin futon are located in the upstairs loft. A double size "click-clack" couch is located on the main floor to accommodate one or two more people. We invite you to settle in for a piece of Alaskan solitude.

Gustavus is easy to explore on foot or by bicycle (provided) or to take in any of the fun and exciting summer Alaskan adventures.

We will provide you with an information sheet listing local excursions - day boat trips in Glacier Bay National Park, kayak, whale watching, or fishing trip adventures. You will know all you need to know to contact, schedule and book your trips for your stay. Lori is the Gustavus manager and she will be in contact with you after you book regarding your specific trip plans.

All local taxes are included in the nightly booking cost. We look forward to your call!

We really enjoyed our stay! The cottage was clean and comfortable in this quiet rural area. Convenient distance to town by foot or bike. Thank you to Laurie who showed us everything about the house and oriented us to the area. Appreciated that she was available to answer questions during our stay. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you!

Gustavus is a unique experience. Make sure to get out on the Taz to do some whale watching, ride the bikes around town, and be sure to get out on some hikes.

We had a great time in Gustavus. The cottage was charming - exactly as it is described. The manager, Lori, met us upon arrival and spent lots of time telling us about the area and giving us suggestions on hiking trails, wildlife, and Glacier Bay National Park. (In addition to being available before and during our trip for advice and questions!) The highlights of our trip included dinner at Gustavus Inn (Lori's recommendation), kayaking with the whales, and the moose in the front yard! We highly recommend Gustavus Getaway Cottage!

Owner Joanie and Lori, the house manager, have put together a great place to stay. Besides a well-equipped kitchen (ask ahead-its probably already there) and comfortable house, the location is just right. Its an easy bike ride to all the needed town services and food joints. With just about 400 residents, Gustavus has no rush hour, of course, so no location in town is plagued with traffic. But Joanie's is just far enough off the highway to make it exceptionally quiet without being inconvenient. Cell reception was pretty good as we were able to make calls most days from the house, and anytime from a spot in the yard near the drive. Lori was very thorough and offered lots of tips and helpful advice on fishing, places to go, and what to expect when trying to kayak into the Beardsley Islands. The plumbing was adequate, and the very hot water plentiful even though the bathroom sink continually spat air bubbles at us as well as occasional bubbles at other taps. So nice to have a clawfoot tub, too, for long hot baths looking out the window on a very green scene. Don't expect much from the bikes other than A to B, but they were dependable and we used them quite a bit for going as far as the ferry dock and Toshco, the bigger grocery. Riding a single-speed bike around town made me feel like a kid again!

We were greeted by Joanie's manager, Lori, with a huge smile and all the information we could possibly need for our stay. We truly felt welcomed and honored and it was a blessing for us to be so well shepherded. The cottage is lovely, the perfect size and had everything we could need in the kitchen, which for us is important. When we needed an upgrade on one of the bicycles because we were serious about our riding, Lori took care of that. The trips we took were all amazing, and Lori took care of everything with such ease and good grace. We recommend whale watching and kayaking to Adolphus Point heartily. It was also wonderful to get to meet Joanie, who isn't always in Gustavus. She is a true delight! You simply cannot go wrong with this place.

This cottage was a perfect place to stay while in Gustavus. Lori, the house manager, was fantastic in helping set up outings and arranging transportation. Bikes are provided to help you get around town, which was helpful. There is a DVD player with a few supplied DVDs, but no cable/wifi/limited phone access - but who needs or wants that when you're at a cottage in the woods. We were lucky enough to see 2 sets of momma moose and their calves along the driveway to the cottage. We will definitely stay here again if we make our way back to Gustavus!

Artist, traveler, long-time Alaskan, and great risk- taker. My home is in the little remote town of Gustavus, but I moved into the "big city" of Juneau to take a job. I tell folks "I'm 'In Town' for a decade". So, I've fixed my Gustavus home, renamed it as the Gustavus Getaway, and hired Lori as Manager to share my Gustavus home with visitors during the summer months. Lori and I have been friends for years and business partners in the past. Lori has been in Alaska for 29 years and I hope you love her service to you as much as I appreciate her returning as my manager! I bought a place in Juneau, along with the adjacent home, built in 1910, with the intent of renovating them for the fun of it. With the vision of putting a roof-garden on top of the cottage right in the middle of downtown Juneau (stay tuned!)!, the renovation project seems to have taken on a life of its own - resulting in the Stone's Throw Cottage. The two cottages are just asking for an adventure package to link them together via a 20-minute plane ride or a 4-hour ferry ride; still working on that. Thus far I have met wonderful people who have appreciated the two places separately - and I have appreciated hearing about, and being a part of, their traveling adventures.
