Ketchikan house description

There's a magical feeling when you're at Coho Beach House -- one guest referred to it as 'The Healing House.'

Seeing marine life swim right under the deck; enjoying the weather and views (rain or shine) from any room; watching the bird activity, the passing boats and sea planes all lend to the pleasures of this home away from home.

This spot is known for having the best sunset views around. And if it's stormy, just cuddle up, listen to the waves, and watch from the warmth of the house. Or, if the water is calm, there are also kayaks available for paddling around Ward Cove and the nearby Channel Islands

This is the perfect place to relax, have a little romance, or if you are looking for outdoor activities like fishing or hiking, the beach house is just a short drive from anywhere on the island.

Even though our minimum stay is 4 nights, if you see a 'window' of three nights available, please feel free to submit an inquiry.

                      Especially in May and June, the eagles and seals are around daily. Later in the summer you can pick fresh red and blue huckleberries just outside the kitchen for your pancakes.

                      Year round beach combing and tidepool exploring. Kayak into Ward cove to see the seals, or cruise aroung the Channel Islands.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: Friends for 40 years, partners in Coho Beach House since 2004. The Odells and the Hooks dreamed of living near the water for years, and when they became owners of this property it was a dream come true. Both couples live on 'The Point' by the beach house, and are available if needed, but also respect the privacy of guests. Three are life-long Alaskans, and the fourth has been here since 1979, so this is home for us.

                      Why the Owner Chose Ketchikan:
                      The location of the beach house is known in the community as having the best sunsets in the area. The beach house was built in the late '40's or early '50's and had been well used and loved by many, but it was in dire need of repair. We considered demolishing it, but instead rebuilt it from the pilings to the roof. The interior layout remains the same, but it's much more comfortable now. It was truly a labor of love, and we love to share its charm with our guests.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Outstanding wildlife viewing at your door. Watch the tide come and go; seals, sea lions, and the occasional whales swim by; and eagles in flight from the windows and deck at Coho Beach House. The stairs to the beach offer easy access for tide pool exploring, and there are two kayaks available for paddling around Ward Cove and the nearby Channel Islands.
