Swan View Cabin 1

Swan View Cabin 2

Swan View cabins are located thirty miles north of Haines, Alaska, in one of the most breathtaking settings on the planet. The lake-front cabins sport awe-inspiring views of the lake and surrounding snow-capped mountains. The property sits right in the heart of the Chilkat Bald Eagle preserve. There is private access to the lake.


This is a nature lover's paradise. Bald eagles nest within sight, and trumpeter swans nest in the lake; rearing their young all summer and fall. For bird watchers, spring and fall migration brings a wide variety of bird species.


For photographers, the cabins are the perfect location for daily expeditions to the Eagle Preserve, the Chilkat summit and surrounding areas. It is a short drive to the Eagle Preserve Council Grounds, where thousands of bald eagles gather in the fall. Bear, moose and wolves live nearby. In fall and spring, opportunities abound for capturing the Northern Lights. Private guided photography expeditions are available.

The location is perfect for winter recreation. The cabins are located in a belt of drier and calmer weather, with more sunny days and better snow conditions than coastal Haines.


Snow shoeing, cross-country and back country skiing opportunities abound. Cross-country ski trails are maintained nearby, and the nearby Chilkat Summit and Chilkat Mountains offer unlimited mountain skiing.


For anglers, Cut-Throat Trout, Dolly Varden Char, Sockeye and Silver Salmon are plentiful in the waters of the lake. The nearby Chilkat River has excellent fishing, especially for Silver Salmon in October and early November. There is ice fishing on the lake in the winter.


Cabin #2 is winterized and stays toasty warm with a vented propane heater. The open plan cabin has a queen-sized bed, fully-equipped kitchen, and bathroom with tub and shower. The cabin has an outdoor deck, excellent drinking water as well as a DVD player with a broad selection of movies. It also has a twin hide-a-bed couch for a child or smaller person. One night stays allowed.


Cabin #1 is open during the summer months only and has a queen-sized bed in the bedroom area plus a twin bed in the living area, fully equipped kitchen, and bathroom with shower.
