Arriving at Joe and Edie's cabin in late October was a winter wonderland. The road to the property was baked in snow but easily accessible even with my little rental car. The cabin and their home is at the end of the road. When I got out of the car I was greeted by friendly neighborhood dogs, one of which is a large black Lab who just wants to play with you. I loved it! The fog was thick but as I sat on the deck of the cabin I could hear the trumpets of the Swans nearby; once the fog lifted there was a breathtaking view of the lake, swans, and snow capped mountains. The cabin has everything you need even food that prior guest leave behind. I began each morning with coffee on the deck then the day viewing the hundreds of eagles; ending the evening sipping a glass of wine or single malt scotch on the deck listening to the swans. Thank you Joe and Edie for providing such a beautiful place. I travel mostly alone and like privacy and though they live next to the cabin they left it up to me to reach out if I needed them. Thanks again for your warm hospitality.
We had a great stay at Joe's cabin. He told us we were the first crew to squeeze four people into the cabin, but it worked out quite well, it was all we needed! We snowshoed around the lake, and checked out the Eagle Reserve which is very close. Most of our time was spent outside, so the space in the cabin was never an issue. The backdrop of mountains to this cabin is incredible. If you want a mountain getaway, this is a great place to go. Joe is very friendly, he had the cabin warm and ready for us when we arrived, and assured us if we needed anything he was there to help. Overall it was a great weekend trip!! I would definitely recommend this cabin.
I travel a fair amount in my photography work. Location is key. These cabins were ideally located for the main areas to photograph the eagles, meaning it was easy to be among the first on location first thing in the morning. The cabin is modest, but fully equipped. I stayed in the first cabin and it had room for two, though a third, possibly fourth could sleep on the floor (other cabins may hold more). Full kitchen, with pans, plates, etc. with spices and condiments. Bathroom was adequate. The cabin sits on the edge of a big pond, that sits in a bit of a valley with mountains around. There were some swans on the lake when I was there. Very nice view. If you are not expecting/wanting all the refinements of a big city or luxury hotel, this may well be perfect for you; it was for me. I stayed warm when in the cabin - it was easy to get it too warm. I loved being so close (a few miles) to the main areas for capturing images of the bald eagles, as I often wanted to start different mornings from different spots, and it made it easy to beat the crowd, thus get a particular starting spot for each day. I hope to return to the area and this location will be my first choice.
I arrived in Haines in November 2013. I stayed in this delightful cabin for two nights and it was perfect.
The cabin is above all— comfortable, make that comfortable and cozy. The temperature dropped to 0°F the night I arrived and I was snug as a bug in a rug. No drafts and perfectly comfortable. In the morning, I awoke to the sight of a lovely lake and skim ice forming. Very scenic and calming.
The bed is very comfortable and there is enough room to move around. As usual, I travel with everything I own (or so it seems). I was able to spread out and take advantage of the space. The kitchen is small, but well appointed. The bathroom is nice as well. The property was spotless, nicely furnished and impeccably maintained.
The owners live in a house just a few hundred feet away and were attentive and most helpful, without being intrusive (a perfect combination). As a tour operator in the area, the owners are a wealth of knowledge on Eagles and on everything else there is to know about Haines and the surrounding area.
The location is within the Eagle Preserve, so you get this wonderful feeling of being isolated, yet it is only a few miles past the prime viewing areas for eagles. It is much, much closer to the eagle viewing area than it is if you stay in town.
I would strongly recommend for anyone wanting to visit Haines and get a small, nice, comfortable and cozy cabin in the woods— by a lake. You cannot go wrong.
My husband and I stayed here during our first winter trip to Haines, AK in 2012 to photograph the eagles gathering the week before the Bald Eagle Festival. The cabin was cozy and warm and Joe and Edie were excellent hosts. It was far enough off the beaten path to be secluded but still within a short driving distance of all the places we wanted to be. We ended up hiring Joe as our photographer/guide for 3 full days. He is a wealth of knowledge and his credentials are impeccable. We learned so much from him in those 3 days that our photography went to a higher level. We left better photographers than when we arrived. I would recommend this cabin to anyone staying in the area. I would also recommend Joe as a personal photographer/guide. In my husband's and my opinion, he is the best...very personable and, again, a wealth of knowledge. A stay in Haines is not complete without a visit to 33 Mile Restaurant for one of their famous hamburgers and the Bamboo Room for the magnificent halibut. Definitely stay with Joe and make use of his expertise. We will definitely repeat the trip many times in the coming years!!
My week long stay at Swan View Cabin was idyllic. The view from this cozy cabin is world-class. It is so close to the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, which is perfect for nature photographers. The cabin was clean and warm (even though it was below zero outside) and the perfect place to enjoy some peace and quiet. I can't wait to stay here again!!!
