           Welcome to Aimee's Guesthouse!


A CREATIVE ENTERPRISE OPEN FROM MOTHER'S DAY THROUGH LABOR DAY
(puns intended)

Kick back on the porch...Gustavus and Glacier Bay are treasures and Aimee's Guesthouse is the first "X" on your treasure map! Situated on 10 acres along the Salmon River in central Gustavus, your vacation home is surrounded by wildflower meadows and a panoramic view of the Excursion Ridge and Icy Strait.

Aimee's Guest House is the former Salmon River Smokehouse. (The fish foundry is now the local artists cooperative, the Smokehouse Gallery.) Two apartments fill the spaces where the crew put their feet up, and where the smoked salmon and halibut got Christmas-wrapped for shipment throughout the United States.

Here at Aimee's, we are pleased to offer you a place to relax after a "hard day’s work" at play. When you arrive to Gustavus, a Taxi or rental car will greet you on arrival and bring you to your door. From there you can walk to the grocery store, golf course, or beach. Bikes are available to quicken your pace. You can stroll down to the river and watch the salmon slalom, or you can put your feet up and watch the world of eagles, ravens, geese, and hawks. Binoculars are available for a close-up of a bear or moose passing by or stopping to graze..
