Traveling with children is always an adventure, thankfully we found a home away from home. My children glowed everyday we were there, they slept peacefully and enjoyed large healthy breakfasts. The staff went out of their way to provide activities and advice on things to do. We have already planned our next visit.

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon in late July. The folks that run the place are charming and friendly, the cabins are clean and cozy, the food was fantastic, and the communal cooking area/fire pit were warm and inviting. The proximity to the Chilkoot Trail head and the historic town site of Dyea make this place a... More

Nice lodges in the nature, at the start of the Chillkoot trail. Good starting point for hiking and visiting Skagway. The White Pass Train is a must. History of goldmining in Yukon. Prima ontbijt verzorgd door Fred en Cathy. Ook de spullen voor de BBQ stonden klaar toen we aankwamen.

We stayed at the Chilkoot Trail Outpost in September. The Outpost is about 9 miles from Skagway on a mostly paved road, near the abandoned gold rush town of Dyea. There are about 7 cabins and a main lodge; each cabin has a different configuration. We had a one bedroom with twin beds with a double bed in the living... More

Kathy & Fred are the greatest! They made us so welcome, meals were "out of this world",(best sockeye salmon and chicken) accomodations (amazing individual cabins - and cabins are not the best words) - , are excellent, and kathy and Fred are fun! We had so many visits and laughs with them! I'd go back in a heart beat.

Fred and Cathy are the best host and hostess of Skagway/Dyea Alaska. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay with exceptional service. What an experience!! A must see on your next Road Trip! The breakfasts that we had were exceptional. Dinners were delicious....We'll have to come back for s'more.......

Kathy and Fred were wonderful hosts and Chilkoot Trail Outpost is definitely the place to go when you are going to Skagway. There were 4 cruise ships in town and it was a zoo. 7 miles out at the foot of the Chilkoot Trail you are in a different world. We had a delightful cabin and delicious breakfasts. Saw a... More

A most enjoyable retreat lodge just outside Skagway in a most historical part of the country! Owned and operated by a couple who definitely 'go the extra mile' to accommodate! Excellent location away from the mega cruise boat 'tourists', quiet, clean and comfortable cabins - small and large - depending upon requirement, a filling breakfast and an evening meal if... More

The site is serene, pristine and with separate cabins that are roomy and spotless. The hosts are welcoming and offer a wonderful spread for breakfast and dinner. There is also a large barbecue pit for S'mores! It was a real Alaskan experience.
