Hard to judge which was greater, the hospitality or the comfort. From the moment you drive in you feel welcomed by Cathy and Fred. Breakfast was good and they can help with any and all planning for activities in the area. Our cabin was so clean, warm and cozy. A great sleep in a great bed. The kids loved the... More

The Chilkoot Trail Outpost is 9 miles outside of Skagway, but worlds away if you are interested in escaping the cruise ship madness.  It's location is about 1/3 mile from the start of the Chilkoot Trail and a mile or so from historic Dyea, the old gold rush town.  The cabins are equipped with full baths, very comfortable beds, and...

This is the place to start and end your Chilkoot Trail adventure. Our family of four hiked the Chilkoot Trail this summer and we signed up for the "Hiker's Suite Deal". It was exactly what we were looking for. The Outpost is just a few steps away from the Chilkoot Trail trailhead. We had the surf and turf dinner before... More

We spent two nights at the Outpost and it was by far the best place we could have stayed on our trip to Skagway. It was just out of town, we made s'mores and rode bikes around Dyea. We had perfect hosts and breakfast was delicious. I'd recommend it to anyone!

If you are visiting the Skagway area, this is a wonderful place to spend a few days away from the busy town. Kathy and Fred make you feel at home from the moment you step in their lodge. Bear and eagle sightings, the famous "Chilkoot Trail", the historical town of Dyea are just a few things you'd enjoy in this... More

We took my five year old for a birthday trip to the Chilkoot Trail Post. He fell in love with the area and cabin. The owners booked our train tickets for us when I called to make the reservations, so I did not have to worry about this at all. My little boy really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and ate... More

We stayed for 1 day and 1 night prior to our departure on the Chilkoot trail. We were pampered and fueled for the big walk! Kathy and Fred were fantastic hosts and introduced us to all the history of the region and gave us great tips to a fun and safe hike back into Canada. Alaska Beer (Brand name) is... More
