Fred and Kathy went out of their way to assure that we had a 5 star stay. Fred even met our 3:45 AM ferry and made fresh coffee. Hospitality just does not get any better! The cabins were wonderful; fresh, clean and comfortable. A great place to stay that we would not hesitate to recommend. Thanks Kathy for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: As the cabins are slightly out of town and away from the cruise ship flocks you will need transporat...

Well my wife and I took a second visit to the Chilkoot Trail Outpost. First time was in 2010. My question is: How in the world could it ever be better than before?" Kathy and Fred's place is even more beautiful and charming than ever! And as for hospitality, Four Seasons Hotels could well benefit from their mentoring (even though they don't do that sort of thing). To sum it up, don't miss staying at this place! You won't be disappointed. You'll be amazed!

I absolutely fell in love with this place! The location is absolutely perfect to feel like you are truly getting away from it all. Kathy and Fred could not be more welcoming, friendly, and accomodating! And the cabins are positvely gorgeous, so cozy but at the same time spacious and I truly slept like a baby.

My dad recently had his wedding at Chilkoot Trail Outpost and it was such a perfect location! They were able to accomodate 200 people with both outdoor and very warm indoor areas. Everything was on point. The food, service, organization and also flexibility. They took care of us like we were a part of their family. Everyone was raving about what a great party it was and such an awesome location to celebrate such a special event!

If you are visiting Skagway I highly recommend staying at least one night at this delightful getaway!

Beautiful property, beautiful owners!

Kathy and Fred have created a piece of paradise at the doorstep to the world renown Chilkoot Trail. Cozy, comfortable cabins in the majestic forest of Southeast Alaska, great location to pamper yourself before your life altering hike, or for a 'get-away'/retreat or special event.

Give them a call and treat yourself!

Room Tip: Accommodation for hikers, families, groups or honeymooners - take your pick!

What a gem. KK and Fred are the owners and treated us like family. The cabins are clean and comfy.
They don't allow pets in the buildings, but you can put your pets can sleep in the car, or if you have a dog you can tether it outside.
DINNER WAS EXCELLENT.
After having an issue with a hotel in downtown Skagway my sister and I couldn't find a hotel in town that would take the cat. We found CTO on our phone and called. I am so glad we did. The only down fall to the stay was my sister ended up out in the car with the cat because it was still cold outside the cat was cold.
My only suggestion would be to make 1 or 2 of the cabins "pet friendly".
I love the cabin. Thanks KK and Fred.

Room Tip: You feel safe being up in the woods,

We stayed here before and after hiking the Chilkoot Trail in July of 2012. Perfect choice! Not only for the convenience, but also the atmosphere. The staff here cater to the hikers, and make their stay as comfortable as possible. You get a large breakfast the morning you leave for the trail with the promise of hot showers and a filling dinner when you get back - both luxuries after 5 days on the trail! The owners are very friendly and extremely knowledgeable of not only the trail itself, but also the rest of the area. I recommend staying here even if you are not hiking the trails.

I can't imagine more friendly and helpful hosts or more comfortable and beautiful cabins and setting. We arrived to hike the Chilkoot trail but had vehicle troubles just before Skagway. With the help of the very friendly police department in Skagway we were taken to the Outpost Lodge and were able to continue our backpacking adventure. Kathy and Fred were very welcoming, booked our return bus tickets to Whitehorse (no running vehicle anymore), let us make long distance calls on their telephone, stored our extra luggage while we were on the trail, at the end of our trip drove us back to Skagway to catch the bus and much more. The breakfasts and dinners prepared by Kathy and Fred were great and were served with a smile. We met some really interesting guests around the fire pit and had our share of traditional Smores. We highly recommend staying here and wish Kathy and Fred all the best in the future. Dan and Judy F
