Our kind of place. Everyone was beyond friendly and helpful. Food was great. Loved the cabins. Nearby trails were interesting, easy and fun. Hiked to former site of Dyea and cemetery (6 1/2 miles). Learned how to do Smores over open fire. 👍👍

We arrived soaking wet and freezing cold after cycling up in bad weather! Never have I come across such welcoming people who took our coats and gloves to dry them in the tumble drier, whilst they prepared hot brandy coffee and amazing halibut/salmon muffins for us!! Fantastic and a must go to place for anyone in the area!! Thank you so much for sending us on our way dry, warm and full!!

Excellent place to rest your head and enjoy the magic of the Dyea. The passion that the owners have for their home and land is unparalleled. Each of them an encyclopedia, having both lived in the valley for as long as they have. Extremely clean and comfortable accommodations, Wifi worked great, televisions in the room, you won't even turn it on, delicious halibut, among other delightful mouth watering cuisines, and the proximity to hiking without the crowds is literally across the street. Very short drive to and from Skagway for different adventures, but we found ourselves quite content staying in the vicinity of the outpost. We can not wait to go back and take the kidos. Truely is a place to reboot.

Spent two nights here. Could have spent a few more if Canada was open. We were a family of 7 and rented three cabins. Cabins were very comfortable. Had microwave and refrig. They furnished a few snacks. Had a small restaurant and bar that my kids enjoyed having a drink and taking with the owner who is a native of the Skagway area. Breakfast was furnished. Fire pit and makings for Smores. Misquotes were pretty bad so we didn't stay around the fire to long. We rented a car in Skagway and were able to really explore the area. Of all of the places we went in Alaska, my kids want to come back here for a week. Hopefully that will happen.

The one positive of the COVID-19 days, is that I was able to take advantage of a change in my plans, and have a wonderful stay at the Chilkoot Trail Outpost. While normally they would have been solidly booked, when I hiked the full way back from Sheep Camp in one day instead of the two I had planned, I was able to show up and book a cabin, clean up, and eat a delicious dinner (and later breakfast) and talk to the owner, family, and staff. So interesting, and informative - definitely a different take on the Dyea/Skagway heyday, which covered such a short period of time. At Cathy's suggestion, I borrowed a bike and rode over to the Old Dyea townsite. Not a fancy layout, but informative, and definitely worth the trip. Crazy to think that town was bigger than Skagway at the peak of the gold rush. The contrast between the current (beautiful) site and the historic photographs anchored the gold rush story for me. The rooms at the CTO are warm, comfortable, and clean, and the hosts are personable, caring, and a wealth of perspective. It was the perfect end to my hike.

A group of 14 stopped for lunch and was told they were closed because the owners wife was not there and that he the owner/husband does not cook. Middle of the day all OPEN signs were on and operational. Has 3 more groups of 14 planned over the next couple weeks, we will eat in town. Our trip to the flats was amazing though! We ate lunch in town at the Glacial Coffee House the best Pastrami and Turkey Avacado sandwiches on the planet!

The outpost is well situated near to trailhead for the famous Chilkoot Trail approximately 10 miles fro Skagway, Alaska. The lodge consists of a home-like central dining and beverage service area that is presided over by the sparkling personality of the long time owner operator. Accommodations consists of a number of well tended and comfortable log cabins. The owner prepared a delicious evening meal of either surf or turf , or both. The meals we ate were skillfully prepared and tasty. A breakfast is also available. This establishment is recommended for a change of pace from the heavily touristed establishments that are available in Skagway

I'm going to try to keep this short, but don't know if I can. The place is beautiful. The woodwork is amazing, the cabins are clean, roomy with great beds. I love the quilts. The grounds are beautiful and clean. The food is amazing! The owner makes the best halibut and salmon I've ever had! And the best is, Kathy and Fred make you feel right at home and will help you with anything you want to do. We loved it so much the first day that we added another day to our plans so we can stay here longer.

We had seven people and booked three cabins. The cabins were well maintained and had everything we needed for a couple nights stay. There are a number of trails and historic sites nearby. Breakfast was eggs and pancakes. Not an egg person but the scrambled eggs were some of the best. Dinner was excellent and the portion sizes were large. The Dyea Raspberry Sundae is amazing. The owners and staff were excellent. If and when we return to Alaska we will make sure to stay here again.
