I stayed at CRL the second week of August. I can't add much to what other reviewers have already said - this lodge is beyond wonderful if you love nature and wildlife. Every morning I would wake to the sound of bald eagles - and stroll onto the porch to watch the bears parade up and down the riverbank throughout the day. The pine-scented air and the sound of the river were wonderfully relaxing. The room felt cozy and homey and the beds were very comfortable with nice linens. I really, truly did not want to leave after our three night stay. Bring binoculars. And you likely will want to rent a car as the Lodge is about a 15-20 minute drive from town and any restaurants/shops, etc.. I WILL return to the Lodge and to Haines; small pieces of paradise in the Alaskan wilderness.
