The Swaying Spruce is owned and operated by the Guilliams family which includes Jesse and Kendra, and our happy sons Hudson, Argus and Wells, and our loving animals, Taiya and Sail. We have been living in Skagway on and off since 2009, it is where we fell in love with Alaska and each other!  Our family loves to entertain and our cabins are an extention of that. Our goal is for each guest to feel at home while they stay with us. Taking a vacation to Alaska is an amzing adventure and we pride ourselves on being able to offer comfortable lodging that really highlights all things Alaska - log cabins, cozy fires, and quiet forest. 


(If dogs aren't for you, have no fear; our dog is never allowed in the guest cabins and will not roam free on the property if you do not want her to. If, on the other hand, you do enjoy the company of our four legged family member, she loves to relax on the cabin decks and play!)
