Located directly across from both the Cruise Ship Dock and Skagway Fast Ferry Dock in Haines, Alaska, the Fort Seward Lodge, Restaurant and Saloon was built in 1904 as part of the first U.S military base in Alaska. As the original Post Exchange, the Fort has been a part of the Haines community for over 100 years. The building has gone through many changes and additions over the years, decommissioned in the early 1930's and purchased by a group of retired officers, it then started its long history as a saloon and lodge in the true Alaskan spirit. Currently the lodge operates seasonally, open February - May for Heli-skiing and May - August for summer tourism and fishing. The Fort is known for good times, good people and good food. Come hang out with the "old salts" in the saloon or enjoy a cocktail or locally brewed beer while taking in the salt air on our deck with the ocean view! Grills and picnic tables are available for our guests who may wish to prepare their own catch of the day. We provide yoga and brunch in the summer every Saturday on our patio. We also have a horseshoe pit for your enjoyment. Our mission is to provide an authentic, down to earth, experience for our customers. The Fort is a family run business and we want you to feel a part of our family. Whether you are visiting Haines to ski, snowmobile, fish, view wildlife, gaze at the Northern Lights or simply passing through, allow us to assist you in putting together your Alaskan dream vacation. Hope to see you soon!

We paid $20 a night to camp, as opposed to getting a room at the lodge, and we're glad we did. .There were Zero people at the lodge the entire time we were there which was a bit odd maybe the season hasn't started up...More

In our photos on the reservation page, we are very clear with what this room offers. We provide in our clear description of the room that it is "historic" and yes, it is not newly remodeled for just that reason. We want it to be...More

I think they are closed until May? I know a lot of companies close between October and April because there isn't much business during that time.
