This beautiful outpost is located in Dyea, an amazing 7 mile drive from Skagway. On the drive look for amazing photo opportunities as you might see some bears. eagles and a great overview of the region. Once you arrive you will be greeted by the sweetest people on earth! A family run business that has you feeling like an extended... More

We stayed here five nights in August and it was the best place we stayed on our 3 week trip through Canada and Alaska. The owners, Fred and Kathy Hosford, are the nicest people you'll ever meet. They'll bend over backwards to make your dream Alaskan trip a reality. When Kathy learned we had reservation with a zipline company she... More

The Chilkoot Trail Outpost was such a delightful lodging experience that this review is the only one I posted for our recent 18 day Alaska "adventure". We are extensive U.S. travelers who have now been to all our National Parks (with the exception of the hardest four in West and North Alaska) and all 50 states. We normally use Hotels... More

We spent four nights at the Outpost and loved every minute of it! We certainly had the best 4 nights' sleep of our ten days on the road so far. We couldn't tear ourselves away from the surf and turf dinners until our last night, when we visited a restaurant that Kathy recommended in town - that was also delicious... More

The Chilkoot Trail Outpost cabins are conveniently located only a few minutes walk from the trailhead for the Chilkoot Trail. Cabins are clean and well kept. The grounds are quaint with lots of period artifacts and there is a big fire pit for evenings outside. Food was great and the hosts Kathy and Fred are awesome, ..very helpful and friendly... More

Great little family run operation. We stayed in a hikers cabin and they were kind enough to provide an extra mattress because we had 3 in the room... the hikers cabin is half a normal size cabin so it is a tight squeeze for three, but it did the trick... functional, clean room. Slept well, and had a nice hot... More

We'll forget the weather but we definitely will remember the time spent at the Chilkoot Trail Outpost. It is off the beaten track which we were grateful for as Skagway is overrun with cruisers. We were seduced by the owners who made us feel right at home. They were very thoughtful and every detail was thought through to make our... More

Chilkoot Trail Outpost is a short drive from town (Skagway), but well worth the effort! If we hadn't chosen this charming sojourn, we would not have seen this whole other side to this quaint but somewhat over-commercialized area, often overrun by cruisers. Soak up the scenery, wilderness and awesome nature - whilst learning about a more accurate historic account of... More

If you're planning to do the Chilkoot Trail the Chilkoot Trail Outpost is the place to stay before (and after) you hit the trail. The cabins are warm and comfortable and the property is adjacent to the trailhead. Kathy is a gracious host with lots of knowledge of local history. The night we arrived my friends and I enjoyed a...

We spent 3 nights at the Chilkoot Trail Outpost and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a genuine Alaskan experience. The cabins are beautiful and well appointed. Kathy and Fred are so welcoming and knowledgeable, that you feel right at home. They are close to the start of the Chilkoot Trail, Dyea with all its history and wildlife.... More
