Private free standing Dry cabin (that means with no bathroom) it does have power and heat. Guests have shared use of kitchen, bathrooms, and dining space in adjacent house. Most everything else within a few blocks walking distance; WIFI available nearby at Skagway Library

The space

Everyone who has stayed in the cabin has loved it. It is sits under spruce trees that were planted by our neighbor when he was courting his high school sweetheart when her family owned the house. Adding to the charm are chandeliers hanging from the trees. There is a double bed on risers so that luggage fits easily underneath. It has power, lights, heat and is just a few steps away from the house (so the bathroom is nearby) Sheets and towels are provided.

Guest access

The cabin is just steps away from the house. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen.

Interaction with guests

We are home in the morning and in/out during the day. We operate a distillery two blocks from the house and can be found there if needed.

Other things to note

We have a small friendly family dog.

The 'Dry Cabin' as is it called is a nice small cabin very centrally located next to the house where the owners live. Enough space for a queen size bed, a heater and light with extra space for bags beneath the bed. Worked great! Conveniently a restroom in the hallway, a full kitchen available and a larger bathroom inside the house. All located centrally in small community Skagway. Would recommend for those ok with an outside cabin and shared kitchen and bathroom.

I had a wonderful visit to Skagway! The cabin is in a great location, very close to downtown. The space is as advertised- small and cozy. There's a bed, but not much space for anything else. It's a perfect place for simple travelers who just need a place to sleep. The only thing that was a small cause of concern was that there is no way to lock the cabin from the outside. But Janilyn was a great host! She was very welcoming and flexible with my schedule when checking in and checking out.

Janilyn and her family are great hosts - I enjoyed it a lot, although I've stayed one night only. Many thanks for everything and hope to be back soon.

Had a great time in Skagway and staying in Janilyn's tiny cabin! The cabin is super close and easy walking distance to Skagway shops and restaurants. The cabin is so much fun to stay in! Janilyn was very friendly and helpful in suggesting places to eat and very hospitable in sharing her bathroom and shower with us. Would definitely come back and spend more time in the tiny cabin!

Skagway is a very beautiful place, a great destination if you're in love with the outdoors. The cabin is just a short five minute walk away from broadway and all the stores downtown. Janilyn is a very sweet and friendly lady, very informational about the local area. The cabin is a very cozy place if you're just looking for a place to rest your head, bathroom and kitchen are available inside the main house. Would love to visit Skagway again and to stay at the same cabin.
