Deishu, a Tlingit indian word, meaning beginning or end of the trail. Skagway has always been the end of one journey and the beginning of another. From its earliest days, the steam ships brought the stampeders and their supplies from Seattle to the end of the inside passage. A journey in itself but only the beginning of the trail over the White Pass or the Chilkoot to the gold fields. The Whitepass railroad, and the Klondike highway's mile zero are both in Skagway. It is the end of the marine highway system up the inside passage. The barge lines carrying supplies to Skagway and the interior of Canada terminate in Skagway. There is lead and zinc ore hauled by road from the interior of Canada to a terminal in Skagway where it goes by ship to ports all over the world. The beginning or end, mile zero either way. For you Mile Zero can be a new beginning or end of your own adventure.

Mile Zero was planned, designed, and built as a B&B in 1995. It incorporates all the most desirable features of both a motel and a B&B. It features spacious rooms, separate entrances, private bath, private telephone, double insulated walls between the rooms for sound proofing, and handicap access, typical of some of the finer motels. It is centrally located and easy walking to everything in town, but in a residential district, which is very quiet.

Mile Zero B&B offers seven rooms so it is very congenial if you like to socialize, and very private if you prefer. We serve a very nice continental breakfast buffet where we encourage guests from all over the world to share trail tales. Your host (Tara Bass) is a born and raised Alaskan. You can call us from our courtesy phone at the terminal if you need help getting a ride. There is also transportation to the trail heads, shows and attractions can be arranged. May through September we are very busy, so we recommend reserving space well in advance.
Stay with us, and share trail tales with the most wonderful people from around the world.
