The Lodge & Rooms

Combining Modern Comfort with Historic Charm

Our accommodations seamlessly blend modern comforts with early 20th century history. We’ve preserved and reimagined the roots of the 100+ year old cannery’s iconic lodge and living quarters to meet your needs. The rooms of are airy and bright and offer the breathtaking views you’d expect from your stay in the Last Frontier.

Fribrock House – Main Lodge and Bunkhouse

While there are many buildings that make up Snug Harbor Outpost, and you’ll get to enjoy them all, guests primarily will stay in the main lodge and bunkhouse that make up The Fribrock House.

This the historic living quarters of the Fribrock family and early cannery workers. Each of the rooms in The Fribrock House embodies and displays a unique piece of the cannery’s history.

Bunkhouse Living Quarters

Rooms with Twin Beds
Relive history, but with modern comforts. Guests are invited to stay in the reimagined cannery bunk rooms, all with two twin beds each.

Room with Queen Bed

We have one bedroom with a queen bed and private bathroom that can be reserved upon request.

Bathrooms and Washrooms

As The Fribrock House has been restored from its original 20th century layout, and in the truest sense of the outpost’s community, each party staying at Snug Harbor Outpost will have a shared bathroom/washroom with the other members of their party.

While avoided at all costs, occasionally two parties may be required to share one bathroom for their stay. Both parties will be notified in advance and accommodations can be arranged if necessary.

Our bedroom with the private bathroom is available upon request and for an additional fee.

The Bay View Suite

For a small up-charge, families can reserve the private two-room suite above the Store which has one queen bed, one twin bed, and a futon on one side. It features queen bed and two twin beds connected by a central bathroom. It also offers one of the best views of the beach and mountain.

Common Areas

We’ve completely renovated the original Galley and Kitchen of the cannery and this is our primary location for cooking and serving family-style meals.

 In addition to long tables, we have a Lounge Area for guests to enjoy the fireplace, have coffee, and share adventure stories before, during, and after meals.

In the Fribrock House, guests can take advantage of the cozy sitting area with couches and a tv. Socialize with other guests, watch a DVD from our selection, or browse our extensive library of books donated by local fishermen and prospectors. Get comfortable on one of the couches with a good book about life in the Golden Age of Salmon.

Guests can browse our Store chocked full of historical Alaskan items and memorabilia, fossils from Fossil Point, t-shirts, and other handmade goods and gifts for yourself or for a friend.

Of course, the Beach is the main attraction of the outpost, enjoy a quality game of horseshoes or to sit around one of the always burning fire pits.

All family-style meals served at Snug Harbor Outpost are locally sourced and seasonal based on availability. Our Galley and Kitchen has bench seating and long tables.
