This eco-friendly second floor apartment has all the comforts of home while striving to live in harmony with its gorgeous setting. From the native plants used for landscaping and irrigated with catch-water, to the non-allergenic cleaning practices, low-energy light fixtures, and recycling program, The Nest at Newton Cove is a perfect choice for green and eco-friendly lodging.
From the comforts of your “home away from home”, you have a bird’s eye view of Alaska’s famous Inside Passage and the towering Chilkat Mountains. In the evening you can watch the brightly lit cruise ships sail past as you enjoy the peace and quiet. A morning walk on beach, where you can gather rocks and shells in the sand and enjoy the salty crisp air and beach flowers and grasses, is a great way to start your day. Don't forget to carry your coffee with you!
On any given day you might see seals and sea lions along with several different kinds of birds dipping and diving for their food. We have placed a few reference books in the apartment so you can identify what you see, and Haines has a great library and book store to help you out. Like to fish? Well, throw out your line for one of the five species of salmon and bring one in for dinner while you watch the Orca and Humpback whales cruise by. At the boat harbor in Haines, you can buy fresh caught Dungeness crab for dinner.
Down the road approximately 6 miles is the Chilkoot River and Lake where bear viewing almost guarantees a sighting or two. You can watch the bear at the weir and keep track of the daily salmon count where Alaska Fish and Game track the migration. This is a great spot to throw in your jig and pull out more salmon. Back in The Nest, spend your evenings watching our selection of movies, reading a good book or playing one of the many board games. Enjoy the peaceful sound of the waves and incoming tide hit the rocks on the beach lulling you to sleep.
The Nest is located on Lutak Road: From the center of town at the bank follow the signs to the ferry terminal, approximately 2.4 miles, 2nd house on the left - look up for the flag pole. From the Alaska Marine Ferry Terminal, turn left onto Lutak Road, approximately 1.9 miles, on the right - look up for the flag pole.
