Guests will also have access to a private dock, 24' Osprey boat and Dodge Caravan.

World-class King salmon fishing is located right off the private dock on the property. The best Silver fishing in Alaska is only minutes away from the dock and guests can see pink salmon jumping all around the area. There's no need to travel far. All of your fishing can be done in the calm waters around Knudson Cove/Clover Passage. The 24’ Osprey boat is available for guests to take for self-guided trips, as part of the daily package rate. The owners have a check-out, orientation process to inform the guests about the features of the boat, fishing gear and fishing boundaries. Larry and Leslie own the 38’ F/V Alaskan, which is also available for guided fishing charters.

During the summer months, the whale watching is extraordinary in Knudson Cove. Guests can often see Humpback Whales bubble feeding and pods of Killer Whales swimming by, right from the dock. Eagles, otters, seals and sea lions are some of the animals that guests will see on a daily basis.

This cabin is located on a private lot off of Potter Road in Knudson Cove. The lot is adjacent to residential and commercial lots. There is kayaking and a zip line course a half mile away, and a full service marina with liquor store and convenience store. The property is located 15 miles north of Ketchikan on the road system. Downtown Ketchikan is a short, 20 minute drive away. Flightseeing, Alaska Native art, museums, hiking awesome fishing opportunities, there's something in Ketchikan for the entire family!

About Leslie Jackson

About the owners: Larry Jackson was born and raised in Ketchikan and is the quintessential Southeast Alaska “jack of all trades.” Larry grew up with 7 siblings and his parents owned and operated one of the first flight-seeing businesses in Ketchikan: Revilla Air. Larry went to Eastern Washington University and received an Industrial Arts degree with a teaching certificate. Over a span of about 15 years, Larry fished commercially as crew on seiners, as a sea cucumber diver and owned/fished a Dungeness crab permit. Larry has a passion for working with the local wood of the Tongass National Forest and opened a commercial sawmill in 2005 and a pellet mill in 2011. Now Larry spends his time charter fishing out of Knudson Cove Marina and creating custom wood products at the mill. Leslie arrived in Ketchikan from Texas in 2005 to work as a planner for the Ketchikan Gateway Borough. She met Larry soon after and they were married on their property in 2008. They built their custom home in 2009. It features the various local species of wood, local art and lots of character. Larry and Leslie have two small children, Josephine and Bridger.

Leslie Jackson purchased this house in 2015

We loved our stay, just minutes from fishing – we are do it yourselfers so this was perfect for us. We caught salmon every time we went out! The cabin is incredible and was very clean, comfortable and spacious and was nicely stocked. The owners were right there to help with anything we needed. Early one morning I went down to the pier with my coffee and a humpback whale came right over to say hi, he put on quite a show! Unforgettable! Including the car, boat and house, this was worth every penny and we will definitely be back next summer and I would recommend this property to any do it yourselfers!

We had a fantastic time staying at this cabin in Ketchikan. The hosts, Larry and Leslie, were extremely hospitable, and provided everything we needed for a great trip. The cabin itself is gorgeous, and included every amenity and supply we could have wanted and more. The beds were very comfortable. Having the van saved a big car rental expense, and we had a great three days fishing on their well-appointed boat -- brought home a nice halibut and lots of salmon.

The location is perfect, right near Knudsen Cove marina, and very close to some of the local fishing lodges. We caught some nice coho just a minute or two from the dock.

The town of Ketchikan is an easy 15-20 minute drive, and if you do go into town for dinner, we had a great meal at the Ocean View Restaurant -- I was a little unsure about a "Mexican/Italian" restaurant, but was pleasantly surprised.

I highly recommend this listing, and hope to return myself before long.
