The Alaska Guardhouse is located on the grounds of Fort Seward in Haines, up the hill from the waterfront, so it affords a nice view of the harbor. But look the other way and see the mountains, too! Phyllis and Joanne are great people, helpful, nice to sit around and talk to, and willing to share their knowledge of Haines... More

What a wonderful stay we had at the Guardhouse B&B in the historic Fort Seward area of Haines. Joanne and Phyllis really went the extra mile to make sure that our stay was comfortable and that we did not miss the beautiful sights and scenery of the peaceful Haines area. Our room was very spacious and the bed super comfortable.... More

We loved staying at the Guardhouse. Accommodations were great, and what made it extra special was the friendliness of Phyllis and Joanne. We enjoyed sharing their house with the family, and sitting out on the spacious deck having a nice dinner of cheese, crackers, and wine. Phyllis offered to drive us back to the Ferry dock, but had a conflict.... More

This has been such a amazing place to stay! The owners are ao kind and make you feel like your at home! They even played games with my kids and let us cook food so we didn't have to eat out. They made us feel like we were with family! I really hope to be able to come back!

We stayed at the Guardhouse in mid-Sept. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating. The rooms feel like a nice hotel. The rest of the house is spacious with a large deck. Absolutely lovely. The view is breathtaking as well. We'd stay again.

We stayed for a week and I have to say it was like staying with family. The owners Phyllis and Joanne welcomed us in to their home and made us feel so welcome and comfortable. We stayed for a week and hated having to leave. The rooms are clean, spacious and have comfy beds. Our room had 2 queen beds,... More

The room was very roomy and nicely decorated. The bathroom was tastefully decorated. Cereal, toast, home-made english muffins, bananas, coffee were offered and included in our stay. We... More

This is a real bed & breakfast. The owner grew up in this house and converted it to a B&B. as with any 100 yo house it is a work in progress, so things aren't perfect. But the bedrooms are beautiful, beds comfy, and living room spacious and welcoming with a cozy fire. The night we arrived they were making... More

We had a beautiful room, with two Queen beds and a nice clean bathroom. The room also had a small refrigerator and microwave. Phyllis and Joanne were gracious hosts and provided a wonderful self-serve breakfast. Thanks for the delicious smoked salmon! It's the best we ever ate!

Kitchen and garage were dirty, the refrigerator, smelled like old cheese, the garage had so many empty wine "boxes" and beer bottles strewn about that you could barely walk. The owners are friendly, and somewhat helpful, coffee was excellent. Parking is almost non existent, and when we were there the sidewalk was barely maintained and extremely icy. Room was pleasant,...
