YOUR PRIVATE RETREAT ON THE BEACH AT PARADISE COVE

Haines House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom on its own beach with mountain and glacier views. Sleeps 7

Give yourself the gift of staying in one of the most beautiful locations in the world. 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. Would you like to get away from the incessant chatter and demands of the 'outside' world? Here's a place where there is peace.

The 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 main house and the annex each have their own new bathroom. The annex bathroom offers a shower. The main house bathroom provides both a shower and a tub.

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.

Two Pack n' Play baby beds are available to accommodate little ones.

This is an Alaskan family house that is comfortable, spacious and well-heated, and 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.

You can fish from the beach in front of the house. If you have a sea kayak you can launch it from the beach and paddle out to Kochu Island or down the peninsula to Chilkat Islands Marine Park.

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

Just over 6 miles from downtown Haines, Alaska, the Paradise Cove house is a five minute drive from the Chilkat State Park which has some of the best hiking trails in the area as well as a boat launch ramp.

Children are welcome at the Paradise Cove house. Sorry, but we can't accommodate pets.

To find the dates the Paradise Cove house is available that best work with your plans, please look at the calendar. It is updated regularly. Cancellations do occur, so if the dates you want show as booked, it's worth checking back to see if they have opened up.

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.

The Paradise Cove House was built by the current owner's family, and he grew up there. The family hand-split the thick cedar shakes that protect the outside of the house and give it such special character. The flower and vegetable gardens were carved out of the wilderness soil and are still thriving. Together, the family planted the orchards of cherry, plum and apple trees that produce delicious fruit each year.

This house has a tradition of being a welcoming place, where friends and neighbors could always find a cup of coffee and a piece of pie.

Now we continue that tradition of Alaskan hospitality by welcoming to this warm and happy home the visitors who come to enjoy the marvelous scenery and activities this area has to offer.

The Paradise Cove House harks back to a simpler, and some would say a better, time. The house provides guests more than a homey and comfortable place to stay. It offers the opportunity to experience an Alaskan lifestyle. You can check your email or surf the web using the WiFi, or watch a DVD on the house's television sets, but there is no television programming available. Instead, the well-stocked bookshelves offer an eclectic variety of reading material. You can enjoy the puzzles and board games available in the house. The spotting scope and binoculars provided invite you to notice the wildlife outside your windows.

You can relax indoors or laze on the lawn or beach. You can pursue any of a wide variety of outdoor activities. Whatever you do it will be real, and you will do it yourself or with the person (people) you've chosen to share this experience.

We offer you an experience that is unique in today's world, the qualities we value most about this lifestyle: connection with a place of incomparable natural beauty; connection with each other; connection with yourself. Serenity.

Because of the delightful, authentic lifestyle this place offers, you will remember your time at the Paradise Cove house as we do: fondly, and perhaps forever.

This house is in a perfect getaway location with outstanding mountain views, waterfront fishing opportunities, and nearby hiking trails. The house was clean and all amenities worked as advertised. The owners were extremely prompt and courteous throughout all interactions.

We highly recommend this place and plan on returning in the future!

O MY! AWESOME.

  • 5 of 5
Our two couples arrived and, after unpacking, sat for six straight hours talking and staring out the front window in wonder at one of the most magnificent views on the planet. The Rainbow Glacier and the lifting lights held our interest throughout. In addition, during our three-day stay we saw a moose with her two newborn calves, a brown bear chasing a moose, hummingbirds, gulls, and bald eagles galore. The location is quiet and the house spacious and well kept--comfortable and clean. We definitely want to return with our family someday. Thank you, Mark and Cecily.

GREAT COZY CABIN!

  • 4 of 5
My family and another family shared this cabin and we have 2 babies under 1 year old. It was great to have a shared kitchen and living area with them, but also have our private bedroom areas as well. |The location is beautiful, tucked away and cozy. We had everything we needed. There is no sound barrier between the main bedroom and the kitchen/living room downstairs if you have babies sleeping, just so you know. We had a very nice stay and I really felt like I was away from it all. I highly recommend this place for one or two families.

PERFECT FOR TWO SEPARATE COUPLES

  • 5 of 5
This house was completely comfortable and we felt well cared for by the lovely couple who own and manage the property. They live close by and offered any assistance along with lovely information about the area. You are minutes from wonderful hiking; marine life, flowers, eagles and birds outside the front window and great bear viewing on the Chilkoot River. Our favorite activity was enjoying the ever changing view of Rainbow Glacier and waterfall, and we enjoyed meeting and talking wtih a few of the interesting and welcoming neighbors. The kitchen was well stocked and wonderful separate bathroom facilities for senior couples who shared the home. We would highly recommend this comfortable home that was beautifully built by the owner and his father, and we hope to return someday......Many thanks to Cecily and Mark.

ONE OF A KIND ... A TRUE ALASKAN TREASURE! VIEWS AND LOCATION ARE AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent 8 days / 7 nights at this beautiful cabin on Paradise Cove. It was myself and my husband, our 2 sons (ages 5 & 9) and my father-in-law. We arrived on July 4th and departed on July 11th, 2013.

To say our stay was excellent, is an understatement. Our time here may very well be the best vacation we've ever had (and we like to think we are fairly seasoned world travelers, having lived overseas for 10+ years.) The cabin was ready upon arrival and we fell in love with it immediately. It had everything we needed for our stay. So cozy. We each had plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the views from just about every room in the house. Books. Puzzles. The spotting scope. On the outside, wildlife was in abundance. We saw eagles every day, even as we sat at the kitchen table. Gorgeous flowers surround the cabin. The rocks and the water provided our sons with hours upon hours of play and entertainment. We also enjoyed having a few campfires.

The cabin is a short drive from Haines, which is an adorable little town (about 2,000 people) with a few fabulous restaurants (Fireweed, Sarah J's, Chilkat Bakery, just to name a few). From the cabin, you are also just a short drive from Chilkat State Park, Chilkoot River and Chilkoot Lake.

This cabin is perfect if you are looking for a peaceful and beautiful place to call home while in Alaska. It is for travelers who truly appreciate wildlife, nature, gorgeous surroundings, and the beauty of what Alaska offers. It is rustic, and so very charming. You will not want to leave.

Map

Car: necessary

The Paradise Cove House is just over 6 miles from downtown Haines. Haines is a small community at the head of the Inside Passage. The town is surrounded by mountains rising up to 7,000 feet above the fjord.

In town there is an amazingly good library that was named the Best Small Library in America by the Library Journal in 2005. Free Internet service and an extensive collection of books, magazines and DVDs are available at the library.

Haines has an excellent small museum that provides the visitor with a good sense of the history of the area, and offers shows of work by local artists.

The Chilkat Center for the Arts in the historic Port Chilkoot area of town offers a variety of performances sponsored by the Haines Arts Council.

The town of Haines affords all the facilities needed for a stay in the area: grocery stores, including Mountain Market, an organic food store and cafe; restaurants; a laundromat; a bank with an ATM; medical services at the clinic; and shops selling outdoor equipment and local arts and crafts.

The Extreme Dreams gallery is a short walk from the Paradise Cove House and displays for view and purchase the work of a diverse group of local artists.

The Chilkat State Park is a five minute drive from the Paradise Cove House, and offers some of the area's best hiking trails as well as a boat launch ramp.

There are lakes in the area where you can go canoeing or kayaking, gliding silently by the banks where you may see moose or even bears. The valley's rivers offer rafting and river kayaking opportunities. And you can launch your sea kayak from the beach at the Paradise Cove House.

Fishing for salmon or Dolly Varden Arctic char in season is readily accessible on the fjords, the Chilkat and Chilkoot Rivers, and the lakes. Fishing charters are available.

The quiet roads with little traffic are perfect for carefree bicycling, and there are many routes on rougher tracks where mountain biking can be enjoyed.

Local tour guides offer biking, hiking, sea-kayaking, river rafting and wildlife-viewing tours.

Whether you like hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, or just relaxing in a comfortable chair and enjoying the long, late light, summer is a perfect time to visit. The meadows and shorelines are blooming with a riot of wildflowers.

Haines hosts the Southeast Alaska State Fair in late July, with live music, displays of regional garden produce and animals, programs and rides for kids. Year-round the fairgrounds are home to galleries, a restaurant and the award winning Haines Brewing Company micro-brewery.

In the fall months, Haines is home to the largest gathering of bald eagles anywhere in the world. Photographers, birdwatchers and naturalists come from many countries to view the large numbers of these magnificent birds in their beautiful setting, along the pristine Chilkat River. The fall Bald Eagle festival features talks and programs about the eagles.
