The Gathering Place cabin 2: Awesome! The view, the cabin, the owners, nature!

Posted: Sep 23, 2019

We are Always happy when we have the opportunity to go back and spent some time in a little place we call heaven. Every time we come, it is more beautiful, more cozy and harder to leave. I am already counting the days to return.

The cabins at the Gathering place invite a wonderful opportunity to relax and enjoy this amazing part of Alaska. Everything you need is there, and the Hostess who is lovely, - offers an extra great experience in Haines Alaska. I loved my stay.

The Gathering Place: Wonderful stay

Cabin was spacious, clean and had everything that we needed. Enjoyed sitting out on the deck, just taking in the beautiful scenery. Was lucky to be able to see the bear cubs each day of our stay, down the road from the cabin. Kitchen facilities allowed us to be able to cook a few meals. Would definitely recommend staying here.

This cabin is cozy with amazing views. Couldn’t ask for better hosts, very hospitable! Definitely recommend!

We had a wonderful stay! Great view, quiet, and we had everything we needed. I hopefully get to stay here again next time I visit Haines.

The Gathering Place Cabin #1: Beautiful cottage stay

Posted: Jul 7, 2019

We’ve been to Haines a few times, and decided to try out the new cottages at The Gathering Place this time around - we’d definitely stay here again! The location was absolutely perfect in terms of distance to the ferry dock and to town - a quick drive or an easy bike ride. Plus the view!! The cottage was also nicely stocked with appliances and dishes, as well as an abundance of soft fluffy towels and a fantastic shower (especially appreciated as we were coming off several days of camping in the backwoods). The hosts were lovely, and clearly committed to ensuring that we had a great stay.

Perfect Place!!

We've stayed at The Gathering Place 4 or 5 times now. GREAT location, just minutes from fabulous fishing and bear viewing. Cabin is always nice and clean, comfy beds and has everything you need. Views from the front window and deck are one of the best in Haines! You'll love it and we'll be back again!

The Gathering Place Cabin #1: Beautiful location and charming cabin

Posted: Jun 19, 2019

We had a wonderful time at this little cabin on the ocean. The cabin had everything we needed for our night stay and it was super clean and cozy. We were greeted upon arrival by the caretaker of the cabin which was so nice. We also brought our two little kids who just loved it (8 months and 4 yrs old). I only wish we could have stayed longer than one night!

The Gathering Place cabin #1: Getaway

Posted: May 23, 2019

We LOVED our time at the Gathering Place cabin #1! We came up with our toddler for a quick vacation for our fifth wedding anniversary. Even though the camping area has multiple cabins and other accommodations, it felt private and offered just the quiet and peace we were looking for. The cabin was clean, comfortable, full of natural light, and offered just the right combo of modern comforts and old-fashioned simplicity. Our hosts were friendly, available, and helpful, pointing out where the brown bears had been sighted recently and even offering to pick up any items we needed while on a trip into town. The views of Lutak Inlet are spectacular (and this is from someone who grew up on Alaska's Inside Passage with a view of the Wrangell mountains). They've done a great job with this spot. My one and only recommendation would be...better quality coffee!

The Gathering Place Cabin #1: Simply Amazing

This short 2 day visit to Haines was enhanced significantly by the added beauty and serenity of this gem overlooking Nature's masterpiece. Our own private viewing of the Northern Lights from the front deck cannot adequately be described...., must be seen! For my family and I, it was included with the cost of the rental. Finally, the bears feeding on the salmon, are located 2 miles down the road. Oh, and the friendliest service you will find anywhere! What a delight.

The Gathering Place Cabin #1: Peaceful, great location, good for families

Posted: Sep 9, 2018

We stayed here for 2 nights. We enjoyed having the kitchenette and the proximity to wildlife. The view over the water was beautiful at night with the stars and the mountains. We watched an old movie on the DVD player that was provided when we needed some quiet family time from the bustle of travel. The deck is a great place to sit and chill.

Very scenic overlooking water and beautiful hand made cabin that was very clean. Kitchen and loft were great. Saw bear at lake close by.

An excellent cabin, with a very warm welcome. Cheri and Frank have built a little Nirvana with the most amazing views, the cabin has all you could want is comfortable and warm. The wild life is aboundant as is the possibility for outdoor adventure! I believe they also do weddings...your wedding photo’s would have the most glorious backdrop!

It's simply amazing! Can't beat the views or the location. Situated the perfect distance from town! We absolutely loved the gathering place!! It had the most amazing view from every window in cabin #1! This is a must stay place because it screams location. We are already planning another trip with this cabin! Thank you :)

It wasn't my first time and won't be the last. To fully enjoy a need 2 things, 1) a great place with a fantastic vue and 2) extraordinary hosts that make you feel right at home and become friends within minutes. At the gathering place this is what you get.

The Gathering Place: Great View and Lovely space

Had an all too short stay here, lovely view and location, well appointed and clean. Shower/hot water on demand took a bit to kick in, but eventually did work. Overall, loved the space and would return, hopefully for longer!

The Gathering Place Cabin #2: Great spot!

Enjoyed staying out in the cabins. Beautiful location and very cozy cabins.

The Gathering Place Cabin #1: Wonderful

Our first time using Air B&B and we have to say we were all delighted with the experience. The location was ideal, the cabin cozy and the hosts so welcoming and helpful. Our only regret that we couldn't stay longer.

The Gathering Place: Great cabin with a beautiful view

Yukoner stayed here for 1 night with visiting parents, would've stayed longer but it was booked. Peaceful beautiful spot, close to Chilkoot River for bear viewing & fishing, easy drive from town. Is traffic on the road in front, but not a lot & being up higher we didn't find it noisy or disturbing. Sat on front porch & watched fish jumping in the water, picked raspberries for breakfast, & enjoyed the view. Great kitchen, fully set up, we cooked & ate all our meals there. Comfortable beds, good space for 3 people (could've fit more with loft beds & pull-out couch). Location of two cabins is really smart - they're right next to each other but they're offset at a slight angle, so you can sit out on your front porch and feel like it's private (can't see the other people sitting on their porch unless you crane your head around the corner). Water in the shower was a little wacky, kept going from scalding hot to freezing, but otherwise we had an awesome time. Would definitely stay again!

We were a group of 4 adults and our stay was very comfortable. The cabins have a beautiful view and we saw salmon jumping, eagles soaring, and bears walking the shoreline. Terrific spot for our overnight stay and we were made to feel very welcome.

Breathtaking view at The Gathering Place

Don't even bother to stay in town in Haines, drive on out to The Gathering Place. It may not be full hookup, but we stayed 7 days and only had to go dump once. The view is breathtaking and the owners are more than just a business owner, they make you feel like you are part of the family. You are close to the Chilkoot State Park and you if you want to see bears and eagles, you will definitely see them down by the bridge and lake. It's double the price to stay in town. You are only 7 minutes from downtown Haines. If you are interested in a cabin, oh my goodness, they are beautiful. The view is just unbelievable. They are very clean.

The Gathering Place Cabin #1: Beautiful!

Thank you for the beautiful stay! Gorgeous views...excellent amenities. We were warmly welcomed upon our arrival. We enjoyed our stay. Thank You!!!

The Gathering Place Cabin #1: Amazing views and peaceful

Posted: Jun 11, 2017

We enjoyed every part of our weekend there. The cabin is set up with everything we needed.(and more!) The privacy and view was just what we were looking for. We even watched a whale in the canal, right from the front porch. Thanks for having binoculars available. If we needed anything, all we had to do was ask. It is so close to the lake, ferry and town too. We had a great time kayaking and hiking. Thanks for the tip on where to rent Kayaks, they were so nice to work with.

Really enjoyed our stay in Cabin 1

We really enjoyed our night at 'the gathering place'. It has all the amenities needed for a pleasurable stay, we hope to get back to Haines in the future and stay again. Frank and Abby were a delight as well :)
