Love this place. Very welcoming, clean and comfortable, good food and away from the crowds of Skagway. The campfire and s'mores every night was great!!! Our ferry was cancelled and then a flight. Kathy called and helped get us re-booked easily. Very helpful!

A nice little retreat only a few minutes out of Skagway. We chose the Chilkoot Trail Outpost for our accommodations on either end of hiking the trail. The lodge is a five minute walk from the Chilkoot trail head. It has a very informal feel, just like a big B&B. Fred and Cathy and are up to make breakfast and... More

If you're up for driving about 10 minutes out a dirt road to this gorgeous little spot, you can't go wrong here. Kathy and Fred are incredibly welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed a relaxing two days, with ziplining (set up by Kathy), s'mores by the fire, hot breakfast and touring Skagway. The history of Dyea area is not to be... More

This outpost is equipped with singular cabins which is great for couples or families. The cabins are equipped with enough beds or space to accommodate our family of 5. We stayed one night before starting our hiking adventure over the Chilkoot Pass, and we stayed one night after our hiking was over. The hosts will provide dinner and breakfast upon... More

This beautiful lodge is on the historic Chilkoot Trail, close to the ghost town of Dyea and not far -- but far enough -- from the cruise ship destination of Skagway. Kathy and Fred are the ideal hosts, filled with warmth and hospitality and wonderful advice. The breakfast is superb and the campfire unforgettable, giving one a chance to touch... More

I loved this place. The beds are so comfortable, the view from our bed out the window into the woods was delightful and the location outside of town near the Chilkoot trail was perfect for me. The customer service was also wonderful. Before we went on the trail the owner gave us a canister of bear spray so we didn't... More

We had such a wonderful time here! We stayed one night before heading out to hike the Chilkoot Trail and again after getting back from our overnight trip. Kathy and Fred are amazing hosts and have such great insight on the local area. Breakfast was wonderful and the cabins were clean and beautifully decorated. We loved our time there!!

Nice family run Lodge. Fred & Kathy were wonderful and they have many stories to tell. Had dinner there, and had smores in open-pit fire afterwards. The half-cabin was very comfortable for the 2 of us. Dyea old townsite is only 5-10 minutes away.

Skagway, a city full of cruise travelers from the morning to the afternoon. Almost empty late afternoon (June). Seems that 90% is souvenir shops. If you want something calm and nice, CT outpost is the place. It's right near the historical city Dyea (unfortunately nothing is left from it). The owner is treating you as a king.
