Perfect location, cozy and clean.

  • 5 of 5

Loved my stay in this cozy little cottage. I took my parents and son (infant) with me on a trip to explore Haines in October. I knew it was off-season, so was nervous about keeping busy. The central location of this rental and lovely view made it easy to relax inside, explore downtown and go for many beautiful walks. Thank you!

The best place for a family to stay in Haines

  • 5 of 5

We went to Haines to support our sons at a swim meet and I am soo glad that we booked the Cottage. It was conveniently located - close to the down town (re stores and the two restaurants that were open) and a short walk to the beach AND If you follow the owners instructions - it is not too hard to find :)

I loved having our own space where we could just hang out. The two things that really stood out for me were:

firstly the kitchen. In winter there are not a lot of dining options for visitors to Haines. Throw a couple vegetarians into the mix and having a place where you can prepare and eat your own food was fantastic.

Secondly, the view from the kitchen / front deck was absolutely stunning. Yes it helped that we had crystal clear days and the mountains were all painted with fresh snow - but they were larger than life. The cottage situates you to look out over the inlet at them. That meant so much to me that I didn't even turn the tv on once the entire time we were there.

Insider tips to make your stay great:

The Master bedroom has a nice firm mattress and the pull out chesterfield / bed was rather soft. Plan your sleeping arrangements appropriately.

Be sure to bring an alarm clock with you if you have a schedule. Timed swim meets do not work on northern time.

coffee - they have a coffee maker and all the filters but no coffee when we were there. The tragedy was that I didn't realize this till the first morning and the store wasn't open. With a bit of pre-planning (the store is also close) you can be saved my pain :)

The cottage provides a great alternative to staying in a generic hotel. It feels like staying at a friends well appointed summer cabin.

Thank you Randa you have done a lovely job.

We look forward to staying with you again.

the cottage in Haines, Alaska

  • 4 of 5

Very nice location on the water with great views on a clear day. Nice to have a full kitchen. A bit of a hill to walk up to go to town, but close to town. The Sheldon Museum & Hammer Museum were interesting, as was the totem poll being carved out front. Brewery & nice yarn store not too far of a walk. Thai restaurant & others in town good. Float trip, kayaking & fishing all right there. I would definitely stay again & recommend it to others.
