Our group had a wonderful stay at the Skagway Inn. We came in two days before we hiked the Chilkoot Trail. Spent those nights at the Inn. They were very informative on the trail and all the local shops in town. They even had bear spray and canisters for our stoves...Free of charge... since you can not bring them on... More

The people running this B&B couldn't be friendlier or more accommodating. However, they need to get their maintenance man to address some of the detail work - wall paper was falling off the walls and the door locks rattle when windows open. The walls are very thin - our neighbor snored like a saw mill all night and it sounded... More

Great bed and breakfast in Skagway, Alaska. Karl, Rosemary and all their family and staff were terrific hosts. We (a group of seven) stayed two nights before and one night after our hike of the Chilkoot Trail, and the entire staff was very accommodating. We were afforded much space in order to lay out, pack and repack our backpacks, and... More

We stayed here in 2013 and again in 2014. They provide a package where you stay the night before you hike the Chilkoot Trail and the night when you get back. They also provide transportation to the trail head, and Karl took pictures at whichever sign you want on both trips. He also provided a little bit of history on... More

Fabulous atmosphere for our family visit. Loved the family aspect of the accommodations. We appreciated the attached restaurant for suppers and the awesome included morning breakfast started off all our busy mornings. Sincerely loved the shuttle that is available to travellers so they can be driven to their daily trek kings start points!

We did not stay at this B&B but we were served lunch in the dining room of this inn. The owner was our chef and the food we had was delicious and different from anything we have ever had. We started with either a salad with greens fresh from his garden or clam chowder (I had salad), and a choice... More

I totally enjoyed the atmosphere. Many of the historic items seen all over the inn were interesting as I like the past and all it implies. The breakfast room was interesting with a beautiful player piano, I have only heard about. The breakfast was great with the baked eggs bacon and home fries. The owner Karl was extremely kind to...

My sister and I recent stayed and were very impressed with the service provided. Whilst enroute to Skagway we received a call from the hotel advising of a road closure - having this information enabled us to reroute our road plans so we could get to Skagway and not miss our 'date' with the Chilcoot Trail. The brekkie in the... More

We just had a 5 night stay at the Historic Skagway Inn and the experience was very good. The room was cozy, clean and the bed very comfortable. Wifi throughout was a plus so I could squeeze in a little work. The breakfast was simple and enough to get going for the day, nice little view of the garden from... More

I've been staying at the Skagway Inn since 1997 and have lost count of the number of times I've been a guest. I keep coming back because the service is excellent, the hosts warm and inviting and the food is fantastic. I love the historic decor and the unique layout of the house. I've stayed in several of the rooms,... More
