The Paradise Cove house is set on its own secluded beach at Paradise Cove with breathtaking views of Rainbow Glacier and the snowcapped peaks of the Chilkat mountain range. Comfortable, spacious and well-heated, it offers all the amenities you need.

The space

Give yourself the gift of staying on a private beach in one of the most beautiful locations in the world.

This charming, rustic house is sided with hand-split cedar shakes. Inside, it is spacious and sunny. The open plan downstairs allows for a pleasant flow of spaces. It has a fully equipped kitchen and a dining room with an amazing view.

A special feature of the house is that as well as the main house there is the attached annex with its light-filled sunroom. The main house and annex allow for separation for two parties or two families who are sharing the rental.

The two newly remodeled bathrooms in the house offer modern fixtures. There is one bathroom in the main house and one in the annex, affording privacy for two parties sharing the house. The main house bathroom offers both a shower and a tub. The annex bathroom provides a shower with built-in seat.

Upstairs in the main house there is a queen bed in the master bedroom. The smaller upstairs bedroom has both a queen bed and a single bed.

The entire upstairs of the annex is a spacious bedroom with a queen sized bed, a rocking chair and a loveseat. Both the main house master bedroom and the annex bedroom have spectacular views.

This is a comfortable Alaskan family house that offers all the amenities you need for an enjoyable stay. The primary attraction of the house is its location on a private beach many think is the most beautiful in the Haines area.

We offer you an experience that is unique in today's world: serenity.

Guest access

Children enjoy the opportunity to play with the frisbee and balls provided and run barefoot on the large lawn. You can also sit in the comfortable deck chairs on the lawn and enjoy the view, or barbecue outdoors using the large Weber grill. Beyond the lawn you can sit around the campfire circle on your own secluded beach, toast marshmallows, and watch for the marine mammals that swim in to the bay - seals, sea lions, our resident otters, porpoise, and even whales.

You can pursue any of a wide variety of outdoor activities. You can fish from the beach in front of the house. If you bring your own sea kayak or rent one from a local company, you can launch from the beach in front of the house and paddle down the peninsula to Chilkat Islands Marine Park.

Indoors, the spotting scope and binoculars provided invite you to notice the wildlife outside your windows. You can check your email or surf the web using the WiFi, or watch a DVD on one of the house's two television sets. Television programming is not available, but the house is provided with a large collection of movies and more may be checked out in town. The well-stocked bookshelves offer an eclectic variety of reading material. You can enjoy the puzzles and board games available in the house.

Want the very best view in Haines? This place is it. Hands down. It even made our 'top ten most beautiful places in the world' list. We spent the week here with our two boys (4 and 6) and it was perfect for us. The house has all kinds of character - filled with wonderful books, music on tapes and CDs, and VHS movies. It takes you back to a time when people weren't constantly on their devices. We played whiffle ball and soccer in the yard, built a fort on the beach and enjoyed disconnecting from our lives...for real. The house is rustic, but relaxing. Both bathrooms are recently redone. Town (with an excellent library, especially for kids) and many hikes a short drive away. We would definitely come back.

The location of the Paradise Cove house is amazing. It must be the most beautiful home site in SE Alaska. The spectacular view of the Rainbow glacier and waterfall is breathtaking. The home is large and spacious and we throughly enjoyed our stay.

Your hosts live on Paradise Cove a few minutes' walk from the Paradise Cove House. We enjoy the outdoor recreational opportunities available here. This is our home base, but we travel widely to both remote rural places and bustling, cosmopolitan cities. We like gaining the perspective travel gives us on our home and our way of living.
