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!

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.
