We stayed here on the Friday of Labor Day and had chosen this place based on other reviews and a couple of recommendations. When I booked the owner told me she would be at work the day we were checking in so we weren't expecting her to be around when we arrived. When we did arrive at noon the house... More

Stayed there in November for the bald eagle festival. The property of off the main road and if there is snow on the ground, a bit of a walk for food. The property was warm and clean and the hosts were very nice. There are steps to access the property.

Phyllis and Joann were awesome hosts and we were very, very happy with our stay at the Guardhouse. Phyllis knows everyone and everything about Haines and has a wonderful can-do attitude. Our room was spotless and the bathroom was lovely, especially the adjustable shower head. Phyllis picked us up from the small harbor dock and gave a quick tour of... More

We stayed two nights. It is very homey, comfortable and clean. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. . It is close to,the ferry so you can walk in. However, the breakfast was only cold cereal, no juice for kids, bread but no homemade jam as promised. Make your own hot cereal. But milk ran out the second day. Disappointing.... More

I have stayed in many hotels and B&B's in my travels. The Guardhouse is the best place I have stayed in in a long time. Not only was my accommodation comfortable it also exceeded my expectations. The photos on their site do not do it justice. My bed was so comfortable that I could have stayed in it all day.... More

The room was not to bad at all, the TV CHANNELS WERE PLENTIFUL FOR THE KIDS, slightly expensive but good central location. The breakfast however was pretty scary, green and hairy, Coffee was slightly cold.

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!
