“A "must stop" on the Alaska Highway”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

Stop here - you wont regret it! Its full of interesting, quirky, unusual, unexpected "stuff". Its difficult to explain as there is so much there to see and it doesnt really fit into any particular theme, but its well worth the visit. Do go into the Hudson House and the loggers cabin (warmest place to be on a cold day!) and spend time with the vintage cars. There's so much to see that you'll easily find something that piques your interest.
