My wife and I came back to Skagway area and stayed another week at Chilcoot Trail Outpost. Kathy takes care of EVERYTHING: car rental, plane reservations, special steam train tickets-- you name it, she knows who does it, has it, sells it or rents it in the whole area.
Breakfasts were generous and great. Campfire at night was special treat meeting travellers from all around US, Canada and the WORLD.
I had business in Skagway, drove in each morning, no problem. My wife enjoyed all the local sights, shops, hiking and people she met. MUCH better than staying in "hotel" or any other place in Skagway. This place let's you actually BE in Alaska, but is close enough to Skagway and its tourist world that you can enjoy as much (or as little) of that part of Alaska as you want, while living in the Great Outdoor Beauty of the Alaska you came to see.
