Hey, I’m Jacklynn!

Jacklynn and Elijah also live in Haines, Alaska where Jacklynn is a biologist and Elijah is an environmental engineer. Our company, Chilkat Environmental, does environmental studies, pollution cleanup and habitat restoration in rural Alaska. Jacklynn also runs a thriving dance/yoga studio. Elijah is all about mountain biking. We are excited about growing food, alternative energy, controlling invasive species and ideas that encourage diversity, life and health.
We have stayed in many vacation rentals over the years and frequented other retreats finding how they could be improved. The retreat provides the experience we seek as guests. We cherish cleanliness, security, privacy, quiet natural setting and reasonable cost. We are new to the hospitality industry and finding that it’s really fun to meet adventurous people from all around the world.

Rainforest Bliss If you’re looking for tranquillity on the Big Island then this is the place to stay. We spent 5 nights in the Lavender Orchid cottage, which along with the grounds are beautifully maintained.  At night (especially after a rain shower) you are serenaded by tree frogs.  All in all this is an amazing place to stay!!

This place is amazing and we really enjoyed staying there for four nights. It was very peaceful, beautifully decorated with everything you need.  Jacklynn was a great host and responded right away to my inquiries. I highly recommend this place!
