This lodge is so great that my wife and I go back to it each year. If you have read my previous review, please be assured that nothing has changed. It is still spotless, the service is fantastic, and the view from the Lodge is priceless. This year, we met a very nice couple from Juneau and another one from... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in early August. Our primary reason for staying here was to see bears. We were lucky enough to see them each day - twice in the morning, once in the evening. The scenery was beautiful and the room was very nice. You should book early if you're interested in staying here because they only... More

Our family of four stayed at the Chilkoot River Lodge in July 2015. This is a very small lodge, just three rooms. We never actually saw our host while we were there, which was fine… the key was left for us, we had everything we needed. It is very quiet and the view is to die for. We spent a... More

The very small (three guest room) Chilkoot River Lodge is spectacularly situated on a bluff above the lower stretch of the Chilkoot River. We visited in August during the start of the pink salmon run, and spent hours on our patio area watching anglers, eagles and a brown bear sow with two cubs, all fishing. What an amazing location!

This is the one Bed and Breakfast I know I will return too. The Chilkoot River is in full view from each of the three rooms. I sat outside for hours drinking it all in. Anglers filled the river and eagles flew overhead. The bears only come out at night in July, but a Mama bears and 2 cubs were... More

The lower Chilkoot River drainage is an anglers paradise and the Chilkoot River Lodge provides a million dollar view over this corridor. Beside that, the lodge is exceptional clean and offers a great barbecue area as well as a private fire place right beside the river.

This was our second visit and one of the few places in our travels that we just had to go back to. Comfortable rooms overlooking a lovely stretch of the Chilkoot River. Paradise for bear watchers and anglers alike during the salmon run. Just 3 rooms and obligiing but very unimposing hosts. Some 11 niles out of town so you... More

The lodge is located at the entrance of a state park. The rates were great and I didn't want to leave. The view was breathtaking. The native host was more than accommodating and shared a lot of personal history.

Just had one night at this B&B but it has the most wonderful setting overlooking the Chilkoot river, unfortunately we were too early for the Bears which feed just 20 yards below but we saw plenty bald eagles soaring above the forested valley sides. The accommodation was immaculate and the blueberry muffins were the best ever. Treat yourself to stay... More

I can only repeat what others have said – the location and views are spectacular. So nice to sit out on the back patio watching and listening to the bald eagles and keeping an eye out for a grizzly and then retire to a very comfortable bed with gorgeous linens. What an amazing thrill to see a grizzly the next... More
