When we travel, we head for beautiful places – at home, we live in a beautiful place. We had never been to Haines, and well… Wow. It’s easy to fall in love with the place. What was special about this house, for us, was just how totally Haines it felt, being there – snow and mountains from the porch, mist rising off the river, the light constantly changing through the day. So, first, just the view, the location. We discovered a beautiful hiking trail along the river, right from the front door, leave the car parked. The house itself is beautiful, too. Just beautifully laid out, with a nice spirit, and lots of little thoughtful details. Deborah had it stocked with everything we needed. I mean, everything, right down to his & hers bearsprays for the borrowing! Some of the kitchen stuff was the nicest quality I’ve seen yet in any AirBnb. It was nice having Deb, the owner, right close by for any questions. All things considered, it would be hard to imagine a more perfect place to stay in Haines. Enjoy.
