Beautiful Ketchikan home

  • 5 of 5

First class accommodations is what comes to mind. Beautiful setting, territorial views of water and mountains perched privately high in the woods. Diana has thought of every amenity. I wouldn't change a thing!

Unbelievably nice. We will stay here next time.

  • 5 of 5

Pulling into the driveway, you are instantly wow'ed by the vista. From inside, the views were outstanding from the abundant windows. The decks are fabulous. It felt like vacation just standing out there drinking coffee. The beds are very comfortable. Diana is a pleasure to deal with.

Excellent Property in a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The Captain's View is very well-appointed accommodation. The owner has thought of just about everything: the kitchen is very well-equipped, the bedrooms and loungeroom are comfortable and the bathrooms large and easy to use. The location is a real bonus: only 5 minutes drive south of Ketchikan but feels further as it's surrounded by lovely pine forest with great views of the ships coming and going along the Tongass Narrows directly below the cottage.

We managed to do a lot during our 5 night stay: saw bears feeding on salmon at Herring Cove, did a floatplane trip to Misty Fjords with Taquan Air, snorkelled with Snorkel Alaska at Mountain Point, and caught some salmon at Ward Lake.

The Captain's View is quite expensive but it is doubtful that there is better accommodation in Ketchikan.

Owner's Response: Thanks much for your kind words, I am glad you enjoyed your stay and found the place comfortable. You are quite correct, a fully equipped 2 bedroom house can be a rather expensive option for a single couple traveling solo. On the other hand, for 2 couples traveling together and splitting the cost or a family that would generally have to rent 2 or more hotel rooms it is a very good value.

Beautiful home, amazing view, piece of heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

The home is absolutely lovely and fully equipped to make your stay in Ketchikan a great experience. We were a group of two couples and the two bedrooms with their own ensuite bathrooms were perfect accommodations. The house is beautiful inside and out, close to town but in a quiet neighborhood overlooking the bay and mountains. I would highly recommend this location for your vacation destination. You won't be disappointed.

Thanks Diane for offering your home - when we return to Ketchikan we'll be staying again!
