APARTMENTS AND RATES
Aimee’s Guesthouse provides spacious rental apartments for short or long-term stays in the heart of Gustavus. With fully equipped kitchens and private baths, our apartments provide a comfortable home base for your explorations. Rates below each apartment include the cleaning fee. There will be an additional 4% local bed tax. Ask about family rates for children under 12.
THE RIVERVIEW Comprising the entire top floor of the Guest House, this two-bedroom, one bath apartment has panoramic views of meadows, mountains, and water. There’s a double bed in the smaller bedroom, a queen in the larger, and a double futon in the suite. The huge deck, with its hammock, sofa, and daybed, will make you want to spend as much time outside as in!
$175 per day for 2 persons, $1176 per week for up to 4 people. $25 per day, $150 per week for each additional person. Minimum stay 3 nights.
THE SHOOTING STAR
A spacious bedroom with queen bed and a separate “great room” for cooking, dining, and lounging give this apartment an airy, expansive feel. A double futon couch can be an extra bed. This is a good economical alternative for young families, as it’s on the ground floor with ready access to the yard, and there’s plenty of space in either room for a crib.
$140 per day for 2 persons, $940 per week for up to 4 people. $25 per day for each additional person. Minimum stay 3 nights.
THE MEADOW The word “cozy” really does suit this studio suite, with queen bed and a private mudroom entry. When the clouds part in Gustavus, sunshine floods through the windows. The apartment even has its own little private deck, a great place for morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. Windows look out on the flowers and fields of the river meadow.
$110 per day, $740 per week for one or two persons.

About smoking and pets
• We love our furry friends, but for the sake of our guests with pet allergies we do not allow pets in the apartments.
• Smoking and e-cigarettes are allowed outside only; decks and porches provide a protected spot to smoke.
• Our fleet of “classic” 1-speed bikes are available free for your use.
• Taxi service and rental car expenses are not included in the apartment rental.
• We can arrange for your rental car or taxi—please ask.
Phones and internet
• We’ve found that cell coverage at the Guest House is quite good, for a rural area. AT&T and associated companies’ phones can get data, but some only get voice calling.
• We do have limited-speed wireless internet access in the apartments (but don’t expect to be able to stream movies or upload big files).
• The Guesthouse apartments have TV/DVD players. No satellite or cable, just a single funky rural-Alaska broadcast station called RATNET that offers a hodgepodge of PBS, BBC, and broadcast networks: news, weather, sports, cops-and-robbers, sitcoms, etc.
• We have a small selection of DVDs available to borrow, or you can rent at local businesses. We also encourage our guests to use our vouchers to visit the local library, which has an incredible collection to choose from.
Other nice things
• A shared laundry is available free to guests.
• There is a charcoal grill for guests to grill their fresh-caught fish, or to enhance any meal.
• We have an extensive library for our guests that includes fiction, non-fiction, and Alaskana.
• We also have a selection of board games for rainy afternoons.
• Coffee, tea, cocoa, and popcorn are provided. Oil, vinegar and an assortment of condiments and spices make anything possible.
• Gustavus has two grocery stores, both within a mile of the Guest House. You can buy fresh or smoked local fish at a nearby shop. Other local shops offer baked goods to stock for breakfast or dessert.
• There’s also one liquor store, with limited hours.
• For weary whirlwind travelers, special arrangements to stock you up with groceries can be made—please ask about prices.
• We can recommend somewhere to eat for your first meal in town, or make dinner reservations at one of the local inns—just ask.
