This secluded log cabin is located at Mile 6 of Mud Bay Road, on Paradise Cove, overlooking the Chilkat Inlet, Rainbow Glacier and Davidson Glacier. The cabin and separate wood-burning log sauna were hand-built by a local artisan for an Alaska tourism pioneer. This was his favoured personal hideaway. Your visit here will not only afford you spectacular views from the spacious waterfront cabin and broad deck, but will also put you in touch with a slice of Alaska history. Family memorabilia from 30 years of this well-known patriarch’s life provide glimpses into his life, and the love and memories shared in this idyllic spot.
Paradise West is an open-plan cabin with a partitioned master bedroom with king-size bed, plus an open loft with two twin beds plus two trundle beds. There is also a queen pull-out bed in the living are. While rustic and remote, the cabin does have city electricity, and indoor plumbing: a shower, toilet and sink, all with non-potable water. We provide 15 gallons of drinking water for your arrival. The jugs may be refilled at the local spring. The kitchen has a refrigerator-freezer, electric range/oven, microwave oven, toaster, coffee maker, blender. The kitchen is completely stocked with dishes, glasses, flatware, pots, pans and all you need for meal preparation. There is even a barbecue on the deck. An oil heater will keep you warm if needed.
Relish the peace and solitude of your private wilderness retreat. Climb down the hand-hewn steps and trail to the beach below the cabin to enjoy a waterfront bonfire or beach combing. Enjoy the many attractions and activities Haines offers: drive a short way to the Chilkat State Park; go fishing, hiking, bird-watching; or comb the local art galleries for a special piece to take home. This is truly a unique place, steeped in the history, beauty and wilderness for which Alaska is famous.

Incredible! We will be back!
I cried when we left! (Rick says he didn't but I'm not so sure) So relaxed and at home here!. You will see us again.
Terrie and Rick Marshall,
Beautiful place, amazing views.
Tons of history.
Such a GIFT
Grand beauty, Quiet, & Peace! This is real Alaska with such comfort. Come here if you wish to step away typical American life. One has to respect the limitations of the septic system and the danger of fire. A necessity staying in this rural Haines breathtaking setting. Part of the experience is respecting your environment while it heals you. I needed a retreat and got a glorious one. Thank You
So glad we were able to provide the peace and quiet you needed!
We look forward to hosting you again sometime.
What a magical place!
We absolutely loved our stay at Paradise West. The view is stunning, the beds so comfortable, the sauna incredible... I have nothing bad to say about this little gem!
So glad you enjoyed your stay at Paradise West and had the chance to use the sauna! It sounds like you had a very relaxing stay.
Thank you, we hope to see you again!
