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 bring your own sea kayak or rent one from a local company, you can launch from the beach and paddle 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.

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.
Why Cecily chose Haines
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.
What makes this house unique
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.
