For Literary Buffs, this is a must see and do! The cabin has been restored and period furniture, cooking and daily living items, and personal items such as clothing etc are placed tactfully around the cabin. Readings of his poetry are scheduled through out the day by very knowledgable guides dressed in period costumes. I even brought my copy of... 更多
We have always loved the poetry of Robert Service and it was fun to visit the place that inspired him. The Park Service staff does a great job. Not lots to see; the cabin is small but in a nice location overlooking the town. Recommended if you are in to history.
We went on an organised tour to Roberts house and there was a reading of his wonderful poetry by Sue she was so knowledgeable on him and told the small group stories of his life and recited poetry to us....I had never heard of him before coming here but had to buy a book as they were so good. Sue... 更多
If you are into Service, and I am, this is a neat place to visit. His "Cremation of Sam McGee" is one of my favorites and the poet comes alive in this attraction.
Parks Canada has done a brilliant job in having costumed students lead tours of this attraction. Our tour guide was fantastic (he was wearing a bowler hat and tie and read from Service's book brilliantly). He read stories and told of his life and then gave us a tour of the little cabin. I really got a lot out of... 更多

Fred was so animated and devoted to both his recitation and his presentation of Robert Service's life's story, it was as if... 更多
We stopped by the Robert Service Cabin at the time of the poetry reading. Sue was giving the talk, and she was extremely good. She told some history, some stories, and recited some of Service's poetry from memory. $6.30 got us the talk and then the viewing of the cabin. The cabin was original with Service's stuff still in it.... 更多
We went to the 1.00 pm Parks Canada presentation about Robert Service, and were much impressed by the enthusiasm radiating from the student in period costume who took us through Service's life and read some of his poems. He certainly communicated well with the audience. The cabin itself was also interesting to see.
