We loved the forget me not cabin, very clean with comfortable bed. Fully furnished with essential cooking things. I especially liked the LLBean robes hanging on hooks by the bed. Very cozy, located away from the hub bub of down town . Would definitely stay again if we were to visit Skagway again.

We stayed at the Swaying Spruce before hiking the Chilkoot trail. Kendra and Jesse were incredibly accommodating and friendly. It was quiet and private (and surrounded by lovely spruce trees) and Kendra picked us up and dropped us off from their site which is a little out of town. Our cabin was charming, immaculately clean, and very comfortable. I highly... More

This is a fantastic place to stay in Skagway. Our group of 4 arrived via ferry at 830pm (30 minutes late) and the owner Kendra was there waiting for us to bring us to the cabin. It's a nice and cozy place and was a perfect location to stay before we embarked on the Chilkoot trail. I would highly recommend... More

We stayed here one night for a week-end in Skagway. The "Forget-Me-Not" log cabin was really cozy, comfy bed and everything very clean. My parents stayed in the "Columbine" log cabin that same night and loved it as well! We highly recommend The Swaying Spruce if you're looking for a place in Skagway!

Very pleased we chose The Swaying Spruce. Charming cottages that were impeccably clean. Nestled away in the trees. The owners were extremely helpful, collected our luggage on arrival and gave us lifts as needed as there are no taxis in Skagway. It is out of town but they make it a great option. A big thanks to Kendra and Jesse.... More

The Swaying Spruce was everything we hoped for on our first visit to Alaska! The charm of the rustic cabin and the warm hospitality of the owners are the things that made us love Skagway! Kendra was so awesome coming to town to pick up our luggage so we didn't have to drag it with us while we enjoyed Skagway.... More

Kendra, Jesse and Hudson are the best hosts at one of the most peaceful, beautiful places I can imagine. I stayed here for a couple of days chilling and preparing for my Chilkoot Trail walk. Tucked away near Skagway, you can choose to sit by the fire in the cabin in the trees, or pop into Skagway (ten minutes bike... More

Perfect, cheerful hosts. Perfect, quiet getaway. Perfect reason to bring visiting family and friends to Skagway. So glad you are just a two hour road trip from home. 😄 We will be back in 2016 for sure! 😊

I stayed in The Forget Me Not Cabin. It is a beautiful cabin. I felt right at home as Kendra, Jesse and Hudson are the perfect hosts. Waking up in the morning sitting on the front porch enjoying the woods is such a wonderful way to start the day. Sitting next to the wood stove with my cup of tea... More
