From our guests:

'What wonderful accommodations you have. Your dogs were too well trained to come inside for a visit despite my invitations to do so, but I think the rooster and goat might have waltzed inside if I had left the door open a few more seconds.The surprise was a good selection of DVDs to watch.

thanks again.'

Eric B.

'Thank you for sharing one of the most stunning view Haines to offer. One bright sunny morning melted my business cares into oblivion. May future visitors find the serenity I enjoyed during my stay here on Mud Bay Road!'

Fred H.

'Although here on business and unable to really relax and enjoy all that Haines has to offer...I must say the view held me captive much longer than I should have. Relaxing, comfortable and much appreciated retreat.'

Wonderful place with incredible views.

  • 5 of 5

First off, a huge thank you to the owner. He went to great lengths to assist our stay (Boy Scouts prepping for a major river trip) and literally could not have been more helpful in many ways. We've stayed in numerous vacation rentals and he owns the lead for customer service. The house is very nice with amazing views from the deck and around the property. A real gem in all ways. If you're a group visiting Haines, this is THE place to stay.

Spectacular place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to watch dozens of eagles right from your deck, bedroom or living room this is the place! Owner Greg is very helpful and extremely personable. We couldn't have been happier!

Quiet with Spectacular Views

  • 5 of 5

Our group enjoyed our stay here. It was quiet, but not too far away from town. Our stay was during the winter so the mud room was perfect for all our gear. It was clean and comfy. Just a heads up if you have a group of 8. There are only 6 beds, one of them is a King, another is a Queen and the rest are singles.

Cozy and Rejeuvunating

  • 5 of 5

This place is excellent. The beds are comfy, the view is gorgeous, the living room offers the perfect setting to relax, and the kitchen is well equipped and includes coffee, tea, oils, spices, butter, etc. The owner is very friendly and gave us our privacy, very non-intrusive.

I recommend this place to everybody, my group and I truly enjoyed our stay. I will definately return the next time I'm in Haines.

Hidden Cove is a perfect place for a family to stay with a view that never ends!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and loved every minute. There were 10 of us total, including kids. Everyone had a comfortable bed, plenty of privacy and a huge great room and kitchen to enjoy our family get-together vacation. This lovely family home was just perfect for our 4 families!

The view out the front wall of windows was fantastic. We marveled over and over at just how perfectly the house had been placed on the property to make the most of it's location ... Private, yet only a 5 minutes drive to town.

We are a group that likes to go out and do things together. Haines is a great destination for this! During our week long stay we went charter fishing for Halibut, shore fishing for salmon and trout, bear watching almost every night, kayaking, crabbing off the dock, roaming around the town, driving any back road we could find and hiking several awesome trails. My favorite hike was the one to Superstition Point where we were treated to a stellar view of several glaciers that were super close....just across the bay!

Each return to the house, we'd come home sandy, muddy or wet from our day's adventure. The Hidden Cove house is designed for active people with a large carport to load and unload cars, a mud room and basement to strip off dirty clothes and boots and get them right to the laundry without dragging our mess thru the house!

Not one, but two hot tubs were always hot and ready to soothe tired muscles and relax in. The kitchen had every pot, pan and appliance we needed to cook meals for 10 and the basement was full of games to entertain the kid in all of us.

We've rented many homes through VRBO as we feel it's the best way to enjoy an area. We have always been pleased with the professional way VRBO handles their lodgings and travelers. Hidden Cove and Haines ALASKA ranks right at the top as one of our all time favorite vacation destinations.

Amazing views, close to downtown, beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We booked both Hidden Cove properties for a large group during the Haines Beer Festival. As Industry Professionals we preferred a spot a little away from downtown to get away from the craziness of beer fest. Hidden Cove was perfect. Everyone really enjoyed the amazing lawn and large deck that was bathed every afternoon in sunshine. The views of the of the mountains and bay were incredible. The house was very comfortable and the homeowner was very laid back and welcoming. The house was clean and had everything you would need at a home away from home, even an awesome BBQ grill! We would all stay here again for sure.
