Petersburg house description

Rent this fully furnished waterfront home and enjoy complete privacy with panoramic views. Just three miles from downtown Petersburg, and a world away. A short path from the parking area provides easy access to the side entrance. Downstairs, you will find a comfortable bedroom with a queen bed, full bathroom with tiled shower, a living room with adjoining dining area and a fully equipped kitchen. The hand-made wooden staircase leads to a mezzanine with a sitting area and queen futon, a full bathroom, and one large bedroom with two double beds. Views of forest, water and mountains are seen from every room.

Picture windows wrap around the house and offer unparalleled views of Frederick Sound. Start up the barbecue and watch whales, sea lions, seals, eagles, loons, fishing vessels and yachts from the covered deck. The sheltered picnic area on the beach provides excellent access and storage for kayaks. Petersburg, Alaska offers charters for halibut and salmon fishing, whale-watching, glacier viewing and kayaking excursions. A Birder's paradise, especially in May and June with many sightings of the Yellow-Billed Loon. Take the day ferry to Anan Bear Reserve and watch Alaska Brown Bear in their natural habitat as they fish for salmon. A country road provides miles of bicycle riding and hiking.

The Lucky Loon is the perfect place for families and friends who like to play hard and relax in style. Fresh seafood is available to create your own culinary delight or call our local caterers, Liv and Heidi, to prepare a sumptuous meal for you. Escape to Petersburg, experience the beauty and grandeur of this incredible place, and enjoy the best of Alaska.

              Scenic small town that is not overrun with tour ships. Petersburg has a rich Norwegian heritage and a long history of commercial fishing. Excellent Bird Viewing,especially in May and June, including many sightings of the Yellow-Billed Loon.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: About us. Petr and I met in Dutch Harbor, Alaska in the early 80's. We heard about some remote property near Petersburg, and built our rock house three miles from town. We hiked and skiffed for 16 years before there was road access to Frederick Point. Fast Forward. Now our daughter is grown. I'm a teacher at the high school(12 years), and Petr does custom metal fabrication on fishing boats. The Lucky Loon is .2 mile from our house and we share the same fabulous view.

              Why the Owner Chose Petersburg:
              Living on the waters of Frederick Sound provides endless entertainment from the birds and marine mammals that pass by daily. When our good friends decided to sell their custom home and 'sail away' we knew it was a great opportunity to share our unique location with travelers from all over the world.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The best part about living here: Seeing whales and marine life from the comfort of the living room. Listening to the sea lions hauled out on the rocks under Horn Cliffs from the deck. It's hard to get anything done might miss a visiting mink, a passing seal or a jumping silver salmon. We live in a rain forest archipelago that is still pristine and overwhelmingly beautiful.
