In all fairness and full disclosure, Ron is a good friend of ours, who we have indeed hosted several times over the years. Thank you kind sir. Jan "Love is blind; friendship closes its eyes." – Friedrich Nietzsche

Enjoyed the pleasant room in a pretty older home. We appreciated the owners letting us leave our bags while we spent the day in Skagway and especially to be able to use the restroom prior to leaving on the ferry. Definitely worth a return visit.More

This B&B was one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska. We only spent one night, but I wish it had been more. I used to live in Skagway/Dyea about 10 years ago, so I know the area well. It was the perfect location...More
