Mile Zero Bed & Breakfast

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 is centrally located and easy walking to everything in town, but in a residential district, which is very quiet.

Info on Skagway


Skagway is a first-class town in Alaska, on the Alaska Panhandle. It was formerly a city first incorporated in 1900 that was re-incorporated as a borough on June 25, 2007. As of the 2000 census, the population of the city was 862. However, the population doubles in the summer tourist season in order to deal with more than 900,000 visitors.

The port of Skagway is a popular stop for cruise ships, and the tourist trade is a big part of the business of Skagway. The White Pass and Yukon Route narrow gauge railroad, part of the area's mining past, is now in operation purely for the tourist trade and runs throughout the summer months. Skagway is also part of the setting for Jack London's book The Call of the Wild.

Skagway (originally spelled Skaguay) is from the Tlingit name for the area, "Skagua" or "Shgagwèi" meaning "a windy place with 'white caps on the water."
