Local honeymooners, Lawrence and Shannon Willard -- was nice to see our home town from a birds eye view!


Well, we used to think that our home in Colorado had the best view but no longer! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay ... Wiley is too much fun, a treat to get some doggy time ... 

Sheelagh and Scott



Guess what. We found gold in Alaska.  The Cliffhanger is spectacular but the highlight was the gracious, warm compansionship of Sue - and yes, Wiley. It was a memorable visit and I am sure not the last one we will make to this beautiful location. This was certainly the "high point" of our trip.  Thanks, Sue

Will always remember The Cliffhanger.  The closeness to nature, serenity, and peacefulness nearly make it a spiritual retreat.  Thank you.




Can't imagine a more spectacular location or more genial hostess. And we've traveled alot! Her breakfasts are grand and even her dog, Wiley (and I am not a dog lover) was charming and well-mannered. We also will recommend this marvelous B & B to all, have already alerted the local visitor bureau of her excellance.

I enjoyed the vacation of my life when I stayed at the Cliffhanger in Haines, Alaska.  My experience was "out of this world" viewing snow-capped mountains from three sides of the deck and relaxing with wine in hand. The local tours were great. I can't wait to return.




The Cliffhanger is a breathtaking mix of romance and adventure. I would recommend it to anyone, if part of me didn't want to keep it a secret!  

The house itself is something you would have to see to believe, from the luxury furniture to the innovative architecture. I always felt comfortable and my every need looked after. Not only are the views from the living area worthy of the famous Alaskan beauty, but to be able to sit in a hot tub looking out over the mountains with a glass of champagne was just an out of this world experience.

Sue is the ideal hostess: welcoming, attentive and a first rate chef. She recommended excursions that was 100% suited to what I would enjoy, and I even had the pleasure of going to see Davidson's Glacier with her.

What you normally take away from a holiday are memories and photos. Not only do I have the best of these but I also came away from The Cliffhanger with a new friend, Sue.


London, England


What a wonderful "Get Away" place to relax and rejuvenate the spirit.  Besides the beautiful views, the food and fun was "out of this world" ...




I will remember the visit for a very long time, I came tired and left feeling "good" with a new feeling of energy and life ...
