The perfect blend of modern and rustic, the Cape Fox Lodge is perched on a hill overlooking Creek St., one of the most historic locales in Alaska. Along with an amazing view of the Tongass Narrows, you’ll enjoy other modern comforts: king size beds, big tubs, and wi-fi – along with an option to stay in a suite or a detached lodge.

A group of totems - “Council of the Clans” - greets visitors at the front of the lodge. Created by Tlingit carver Lee Wallace, these striking totems symbolize a gathering of people having a meeting as they would have in a long-ago Native lodge. More Native art is waiting to be discovered inside, including a mural by nationally-known carver Nathan Jackson.

The Numshee Jitters Café, right off the lobby, is a casual spot where you can get your coffee fix morning and afternoon. The on-site dining room is considered to be one of the best restaurants in town, specializing in a wide variety of seafood.

Whether you’re staying a few days or just popping up for a meal, you can get to Cape Fox Lodge on the funicular, or – for an historical stroll – try “Married Man’s Trail” across the top of the ridge to and from Creek Street. This route was often used as a discreet shortcut for those wishing to frequent the bawdy houses of this infamous street during its heyday as a hotbed of illicit activity.
