As the saying goes, in real estate there are three key factors: location, location and location. And the Chilkoot Haven got them all! The view from the porch onto the river is just amazing - you can watch bald eagles and bears directly from there, or take a walk down some stairs to get direct access to the river.
There are only 3 rooms here in the Haven, so the place never felt crowded, and chances are you meet other wildlife enthusiasts on the porch.
My room itself was clean and well equipped - nothing fancy, but with a comfy bed, a hot shower in the morning, a table with two chairs to sit, a microwave and a fridge, you get everything you need to enjoy your stay. I didn't use the BBQ grill or hot tub that are available for all guests.
Haines is a 20 minute drive away if you want to restock or grab something to eat, but if you're into wildlife I can almost guarantee that you won't be leaving the area until you have to!
I stayed for two nights and enjoyed it immensely, and certainly hope to return.
