Whether it's for a brief stay or a couple of weeks, this immaculately clean one-bedroom apartment has a well-appointed kitchen with a microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher and large refrigerator and free shared access to the owner's laundry facilities. Plenty of pots and pans, cups, plates and utensils. It's ideal for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers and families with kids.

The private bedroom features a queen-sized bed and the living room has a comfy full-sized sleeper sofa. Sleeps four. Plenty of books for all ages of readers, the Red Oar Inn is perfectly situated for easy beach access (an easy five-minute stroll down a paved bike path) and located on the main bus line.

The neighborhood

Private, quiet residential neighborhood. Free parking and steps away from the ocean-front paved bike bath. Five-minute stroll to Bugge's Beach, minutes by car to downtown Ketchikan and located on the main bus line.

Perfect just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

First of all we were greeted with homemade blueberry muffins the owners had made. We loved them they did not last long.Yum yum !!! . The owners were very nice and saw to it that we were comfortable. My daughter loved all the movies and books that were there for us to enjoy. The place was very neat clean and comfortable. I liked the heated towel warmer when you got out of the shower. Oh and you know how you go to a hotel and the bed doesn't feel right or sleep good not this one it slept just like we were back at home that was great. oh and did i mention no one running down hallways or slamming doors it was very quite and relaxing. It was a great place to stay as i said it was just what we were looking for for a nice relaxing place to stay. If this is what you are looking for this is it Great Place .

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Rebecca was super kind and helpful! The place was very clean and exactly what we needed. Great location in between downtown and a fun fishing place for us, herring cove. I gave this place 5 stars because of cleanliness, location, price, washer/dryer, and friendly landlords. All-around, a great stay! :)

Owner's Response: Thanks for the awesome review - it was a delight to have two former locals with us! We are still talking about that amazing video you took of the whale breaching - WOW. Glad you got to spy bears and catch fish, too - you definitely did your Ketchikan trip right. ;) Come stay with us again any time.
