Chilkoot Trail Outpost
Ranked #1 of 5 Skagway B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 September 2017 via mobile

This is truly a mountain gem. I booked this for my wife and I and was a little afraid because she's used to upscale hotels and is super picky... she LOVED IT !
Everything about this place is great - but most of all Fred and Kathy the gracious hosts.

This was our first trip to Alaska and the chilkoot trail outpost was the by far the best lodging we had! In addition the hosts Fred and Kathy are the nicest people with a lot of great tips and recommendations. I can't wait to go back next year. The rooms are clean, spacious and very comfortable. This is luxe cabin living!

Fred and Kathy were fantastic hosts! Kathy has a great sense of humor, and besides being great company, she has great tips for getting the most out of your visit in the area. Make sure to talk to her for tips along with some fascinating history of the area.

The lodge is located approximately 20 minutes outside of Skagway near the old townsite of Dyea, making for a very peaceful stay away from the chaos of the cruise ship passengers in town. The cabin was cozy and the food was quite good. With advance notice, you can have a delicious salmon dinner in the dining hall, an offer which I took and by no means regretted!

In short, I'm looking forward to my next stay here!

Room Tip: If the cabins are fully booked, hope is not lost! Ask if the overflow rooms in the conference center...

Two of us recently hiked the Chilkoot Trail and chose to stay here the night before and after the big hike. We are sure glad that we booked the Hiker's Special and stayed in this wonderful place. The food was great, accommodations perfect and the owners and workers made us feel like family. I would definitely book here again, it was the perfect place to rest up for and recover from the Chilkoot Trail.
