We stayed for 2 nights and the cabin was perfect, clean and comfortable. This is what the Beach Road House in Haines should aspire to. The room has a microwave and fridge and we enjoyed using the barbecue in the gazebo on both nights and the campfire on our last night. Kathy is very friendly and helpful with lots of... More

If you are visiting Skagway and want an amazing place to stay... don't pass up the Chilkoot Trail Outpost. Beautiful, quiet and absolutely amazing. The rustic, but modern and exceptionally clean, log cabins are a dream. Kathy and Fred make sure that your every need is met. Do not miss out on their evening meal.. absolutely delicious!!!

Great location, away from the Skagway tourist locations. The cabins are nicely and simply decorated, bathrooms clean, and nice hot shower felt good. I found the breakfast to be a disappointment - eggs obviously not fresh scrambled - they were barely warm, rubbery and unseasoned. Otherwise a continental breakfast. And if you are thinking about their surf and turf, I... More

We stayed at the Chilkoot Trail Outpost for two nights during June 2014. The Outpost is located at the end of a really scenic drive along the 7 mile Dyea Road, at the end you can (if you're lucky) spot bears grazing and harbor seals bobbing! Kathy (our host) welcomed us to the property and talked us through the package... More

It was our first taste of Alaksan hospitality and we were not disappointed one bit. Off the beaten track of the Skagway tourist trap it is well worth the extra couple of miles to travel to this excellent cabin based B&B location in Dyea. The hosts, Kathy and Fred, are genuinely delighted to welcome their guests. Nothing, it seems, is... More

I booked a room for my parents for our two days stay in Alaska. These hosts were the most gracious and welcoming hosts I've ever dealt with. Wow. From the moment we registered they were friendly, accommodating, welcoming and whatever else fits. The room we booked was quaint but fully loaded and there isn't anything else needed for a vacation... More

We booked a two-day stay at Chilkoot Trail Outpost on an impulse based on a strong recommendation from friends who live in Whitehorse, Yukon. It was one of the best decisions we made during our10-day vacation. Cathy and Fred took care of everything including booking us on the Fjord Express from Skagway to Juneau as well at the White Pass... More

What a delight to discover with the help of tripadvisor.com this quiet and spectacular setting near the somewhat crowded and hectic scene of Skagway. Highly recommended for the scenic 8-9 mile drive from Skagway and the fascinating history of nearby (2-3 miles) Chilkoot trailhead and Dyea ghost town. Rental car definitely needed. Extremely friendly, gracious and knowledgable hosts. Guest cabin... More
