Where to stay in Haines

Haines supports a few hotels and motels, most of which sit near the waterfront. Bed and breakfasts are more plentiful in the area, and many boast superb views and provide a real taste of Alaska. Renting a more rural cabin or staying at a campsite or RV park is a good way to take advantage of Haines' beautiful natural surroundings.
