Note, with the closing of Sgt. Preston’s Lodge in 2019, accommodations will be tight so book early.  You may also want to explore various Skagway AirBnB and VRBO options online which are not listed on the SCVB site. Be aware that when searching for Skagway homes to rent on those sites, it will also bring up homes in Haines, so check the map views to make sure the homes are in the right town!
