Absolutely the highlight of our trip. We spent 10 days touring the Yukon and parts of Alaska, and our stay with Kathy and Fred was the best by far. Our cabin was immaculate, the bed was heavenly, and their hospitality is out of this world. Our only regret was that we couldn't extend our stay with them. If you are planning to go to Skagway, skip the commercialism of downtown and make the short drive to Dyea to stay with these lovely people. If you decide to partake of their offered bbq'd dinner, you won't be disappointed - Kathy's coleslaw is the best! We can't recommend the Chilkoot Trail Outpost highly enough, and the host and hostess are genuinely lovely people.
