Great Campground

Just south of town, within easy walking distance is a very nice campground. Located on a spit of land jutting into Lynn Canal, it has unsurpassed views of the water and town. Lots of trees, each site had a fire pit and picnic table.

Great views of Haines and the Lynn Canal.

Chilkat Eagle Bed and Breakfast: Chilkat Eagle Bed and Breakfast

This was my first time staying in a bed and breakfast and really didn't know what to expect.

In reflection it was a good experience. The beds were comfortable, it was quiet there and the owner Dave Nanning was flexible in that he will pick you up from the docks, give you a quick tour around the town and seemed to be very accomodating to help make your stay a good one.

Hotel Halsingland: Hasingland Hotel: Historic Lodging / Full Service

This hotel is really three historic houses that once served as the commanding officer's house, the captain's quarters, and the bachelor's quarters for Ft. Seward. It is a very comfortable, rambling, and old fashioned hotel that has undergone many renovations through the years. Some of these renovations may seem a little dated now, but improvements continue with the new owners. It has all the basic hotel amenities, and some not so basic such as: Bath and Body Works products that were replinished daily and a very nice bar and restaurant area off the main lobby. The bar serves local brews, and the restaurant is one the best in Haines. The hotel is certainly not lacking in character, but don't expect Victorian lace and antique furnishings in every room. Our first floor room was very large, had an outside deck, (which suited us well since we are smokers) and an old fashoined fireplace. It was really three rooms including a large bathroom. The room was very clean and comfortable. The new owners, Jeff Butcher and his wife, were very helpful and friendly. They also own the adjacent house, which is the former bachelor's quarters, and is run as a The Officer's Inn B&B. There were no guest in this building when I visited in September. Jeffery the bartender, waiter, and all round nice guy was always helpful and always present. The other front desk staff also seemed friendly and helpful. They seemed to work day and night, never intrusive, but always available. If you arrive on the ferry without a car they will arrange transport, tours, or even a rental car. Don't miss dinner at the Hasingland Hotel. The food in restaurant could only be described as wonderful.

Located in the middle of Ft. Seward, the most scenic part of Haines, rooms run the gamut in size and amenities. The rooms on the front have an unbelievable view across the parade grounds at Ft. Seward all the way down to ocean and the snow covered mountains beyond. Most of the larger first floor rooms were original to house and don't offer this view, but they do feature the nice old mirrored and tiled fireplaces or claw foot bathtubs. The same views can be had everyone who steps outside or sits in the comfortable living room like lobby. Some upstairs rooms share a common bath and are much less expensive than the stated price range. It is a classic rambling old hotel that vaguely brought back memories of the movie "The Shining", but the host are much nicer. ha ha.
