The SpaceWe are located right on the lake with an incredible view. The cabin is located at the end of the road. There is a queen bed, plus a pull-out sofa into a twin bed. A foam double mattress is also available. We have accommodated families with kids very well in this cabin. Guest AccessThere is private access to the lake from the cabin. Interaction with GuestsOur house is at the other end of the property. We are nearby if there are any questions or needs, but in general, we leave our guests alone. The NeighborhoodI wouldn't really call it a neighborhood, but there are three or four houses nearby. There are friendly dogs in the neighborhood, and if you like throwing sticks in the lake for a black lab to fetch, you will soon be great friends with our neighbor's dog, Maggie. But if you want to be left alone, the dogs will not bother you. The neighbors are self-reliant Alaskans, and will be happy to talk to you if approached but mostly are out doing their own thing. Getting AroundThere is no public transport. So most people rent cars. We can arrange pick up and drop off service for an extra fee. Other Things to NoteI have some fishing equipment that I'm happy to share, and usually there is an extra canoe down at the lake.

HAINES: The Paradise Cove House is about 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. 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. THE AREA: 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.

Whether you like hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, or just relaxing in a comfortable chair and enjoying the long, late light, spring, summer, and fall are a perfect time to visit. If you think you want to drive to the pass in Canada - an hour's drive from Haines - to see the spectacular scenery and (in season) the flowers in the alpine there, that would require bringing your passports. You can search the Internet for 'Haines Adventure Capital of Alaska' to find the web site that gives information on area activities. You can also contact the Haines Visitor Information Center for information about area activities and car rentals. They're knowledgeable and will be happy to help you set up all the experiences you'd like to have during your stay.
