This rustic, secluded log cabin rental is located at Mile 6 of Mud Bay Road, on Paradise Cove, overlooking the Chilkat Inlet, Rainbow Glacier and Davidson Glacier. The cabin was hand-built by a local artisan in 1983 for an Alaska tourism pioneer. This was his favored 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 partioned off master bedroom with a king-size bed, plus an open loft with two twins beds and two trundle beds. There is also a queen hide-a-bed sofa in the living area.

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, and blender. The kitchen is completely stocked with dishes, glasses, flatware, pots, pans and all you need for meal preparation. There is even a barbeque on the deck. An oil heater will keep you warm if needed. Wi-fi for email checking, Direct TV, DVD player, stereo, and phone for local calls only.

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 beachcombing. 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.

Words can not describe how utterly marvelous Paradise West was for a family vacation. Our family truly enjoyed the rustic, true Alaskan cabin feeling that Paradise West offered. The view of Rainbow Glacier outside the back door was fantastic, the atmosphere provided a perfect needed retreat for my family. Hiking trails, friendly townspeople. Pictures and words cannot compare to the majestic scenery Haines, Alaska offers or the history of Paradise West.

Paradise West was an amazing spot for our trip to Haines, Alaska. The breathtaking views and cozy cabin accommodated our group of four perfectly. We loved the set up and felt right at home. The kitchen was well supplied and the sauna was an added bonus! I would highly recommend this spot to anyone. Thanks for a wonderful experience:)
