Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Both my husband Mike and I came to Alaska in 1984, I am originally from CT, I am a station manager for a small commuter airlines Alaska Seaplanes, we fly to many communities in Southeast Alaska. My husband Mike is from WA State, and he is a tugboat captain running boats all over Alaska. We met here in Skagway and immediately fell in love with this beautiful country. Anyone who has spent anytime in Alaska will agree that in just gets under your skin and becomes home. We raised our 2 daughters here and have enjoyed this peaceful safe little town for over 30 years.

Why the Owner Chose Skagway, AK, USA:
We bought our beautiful house in 2000, there are large windows on all 3 sides of the house capturing all the breathtaking views Skagway has to offer. You can look to the north and see the White Pass Mountain range in the Yukon and also look to the south and see the Lynn Canal all from one room. The location was a draw as well, only 10 minutes from town by car, it definitely gives you the feeling of getting away from it all.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One unique benefit of the house is during the tourist season you have a the bird's eye view of the ships coming into port every morning and leaving every night. You can enjoy watching from the upstairs bedroom, or off the balcony or the downstairs living room, and lower deck.
