About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Oceanfront Modern House With phone and big screen Satellite TV

Whale Point Cabin at Coffman Cove provides an extraordinary experience for any outdoor enthusiast. Located in one of Alaska’s best-kept secrets, Coffman Cove has a majestic atmosphere, which provides the perfect outdoorsman adventure or family vacation.

Whale Point Cabin is located on Prince of Wales Island, the third largest island in the United States. With hundreds of miles of accessible shoreline, our cabin’s location on the northeastern coast of the island will meet all the recreational needs of your party. Bring your fishing gear, because the Steelhead, Red Salmon, Halibut, and Silvers are awaiting your arrival, and we hope you bring along a few companions because reeling in the big ones will require some assistance!

When you can’t manage another day of reeling in fish, then Whale Point Cabin at Coffman Cove is the perfect place to head off onto a hiking/biking trail or hit the water sports with canoeing or kayaking. Prince of Wales Island’s convenient roads and our easily accessed cabin will make available to your group an outdoor experience you'll never forget.

Whale Point Cabin has two private bedrooms, two bathrooms, satellite TV with a large flatscreen, and telephone service! We have all the amenities you need to make your stay comfortable.

Whale Point Cabin's oceanfront location is the ideal setting for any successful and memorable outdoor adventure.

About Bill Cahill

I live in Los Angeles but go to Alaska as much as I can.

Bill Cahill purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Bill Cahill chose Alaska

I have been going to Coffman Cove for over 10 years and I love the town and the people. Coffman Cove is such a warm place and the fishing is outstanding. I bought this piece of land because it is the most beautiful piece of land I have ever seen.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is unique to Coffman Cove and Prince of Wales island. Whales literally come within feet of the shoreline. Eagles call the trees home, and you can see both sunrise and sunset from the porch. There is probably no other spot as picturesque as Whale Point Cabin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

There is NO better place to experience Southeast Alaska than right here at Whalepoint Cabin Rental. Out of six trips to Alaska this one has been the best. The place and the people are pretty special!

Whale Point Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the 'cabin' in Sept - more like a home than a cabin with literally everything one needs and the view is nothing short of amazing. Our trip was perfect - good weather, good friends and good times! No fish this trip but the whale viewing multiple times a day more than made up for it, not to mention the enormous amount of deer on the island. Our hosts, owner Bill Cahill and on-site property manager Steve , were both incredibly helpful in answering all our questions and then some. We were even visited by a tame fawn who stuck around for what seemed to be an hour and even followed me into the cabin - a once in a life time event for sure! We will definitely be back for another visit, this may become an annual event for us - soooo much fun! See you next year Bill - Harv & Sue S.

I'm already booked for next year!

  • 5 of 5

I’ve just returned from my grand adventure at Whale Point Cabin. Out of six trips to Alaska, this one was the show stopper. Bill Cahill is the best host that I’ve had in all of my travels, barring none. He went out of his way to help me coordinate my transportation from Ketchikan to Prince of Wales Island. He answered my many questions and provided information that enhanced my stay.

Whale Point Cabin is a cozy, well equipped cabin with an astounding view of Clarence Straight, Mountains and peaks of Canadian glacial mountains 65 miles away on a clear day. I watched humpbacked Whales feed every day with frequent sightings of Orcas, seals, the resident Eagle behind the cabin and the neighborhood Sitka Blacktail fawn that ate carrots from my hand and liked to be scratched behind her ears.

I fished, hiked and explored the island from Red Lake to Whale Pass, Thorne Bay, the El Capitan Caves, the Klawock, Thorne and Neck Rivers and numerous creeks and lakes. Fresh caught Silver Salmon were smoked regularly on the smoker at the cabin. I enjoyed many evening fires while watching the whales frolic and listening to them sound out in Clarence Straight. The majesty of Whale Point Cabin and the Prince of Whales is unparalleled.

For the artist and photographers, Prince of Wales Island provides infinite opportunities and inspiration. I shot volumes of sunsets, sunrises and wildlife from Whale Point Cabin, scratching the surface of the infinite material that abounds there alone. The same is true for opportunities to fish for salmon, trout, halibut and crab.

I could write pages upon pages of what I saw and experienced during my stay at Whale Point Cabin. However, the best recommendation that I can give is to contact Bill Cahill at Whale Point Cabin and book a stay. It will be the experience of a lifetime that you won’t soon forget.

Wonderful little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay. We would drink coffee and listen to the whales spouting right off the point! Watch the fishing boats come in and go out for the day. It was just perfect. Beds were comfortable, house was clean and well cared for. Cupboards had exactly what we needed to prepare meals etc. And most important everyone in town was super kind, helpful and sharing of information. We will be back for sure!
