We stayed here for 4 nights in September. We have spent just over 2 weeks in Canada until we arrived here, moving from place to place. Chilkoot gave us an opportunity to sit back, relax and watch the wildlife. The river is just outside your door and the cascading sounds are very relaxing. There are only 3 units on this...

This is without peer in terms of comfort and location. Perched above a bend on the Chilkoot River from your room you see panoramic views of river and mountains. Bald Eagles and Grizzlys are common sightings at this time of year with the salmon spawning. About a ten minute drive from Haines it's location is just right. There was a...

The rooms are right on the river and you can watch bears, fishermen, and eagles depending on the season right from you room. It is marvelously beautiful. The owner is very accomadating and the rooms were clean and nicely outfitted.

Our vacation rental was in a perfect location,above the river with a view of bears, Eagles and fishermen. The service was fantastic and the home spotless! We had all the amenities of home, but the wilderness in front of us. The best vacation ever!

Great night sleeps, a flowing river outside my door, and abundant nature. Absolutely stunning location. Loved the peace, quiet, and serenity. Perfect place to stay while attending a yoga retreat. Saw a bear:-).

This lodge is so great that my wife and I go back to it each year. If you have read my previous review, please be assured that nothing has changed. It is still spotless, the service is fantastic, and the view from the Lodge is priceless. This year, we met a very nice couple from Juneau and another one from...

We stayed here for 3 nights in early August. Our primary reason for staying here was to see bears. We were lucky enough to see them each day - twice in the morning, once in the evening. The scenery was beautiful and the room was very nice. You should book early if you're interested in staying here because they only...

Our family of four stayed at the Chilkoot River Lodge in July 2015. This is a very small lodge, just three rooms. We never actually saw our host while we were there, which was fine… the key was left for us, we had everything we needed. It is very quiet and the view is to die for. We spent a...

The very small (three guest room) Chilkoot River Lodge is spectacularly situated on a bluff above the lower stretch of the Chilkoot River. We visited in August during the start of the pink salmon run, and spent hours on our patio area watching anglers, eagles and a brown bear sow with two cubs, all fishing. What an amazing location!

This is the one Bed and Breakfast I know I will return too. The Chilkoot River is in full view from each of the three rooms. I sat outside for hours drinking it all in. Anglers filled the river and eagles flew overhead. The bears only come out at night in July, but a Mama bears and 2 cubs were...
