Great Ketchikan hangout!
Great Ketchikan hangout!
I loved watching the cruise ships come in. I thought they were going to dock in the living room! I only had breakfast there but the kitchen was all set up with most everything you would need for cooking.. The beds are very comfortable. There is lots of room for people to spread out: a front glassed in room and a room between the living room and the bedrooms.The free blue "fish bus" that goes from one end of the town to the other is only one block away. You can take the water taxi to the airport across the street. There are stairs. Tub/shower is step over/no bars.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: I am Betsey Burdett and I purchased the home in 2008. After 3 years of renovations it was finally ready for guests in 2010. My son Jared and I own and run the 27 year old family business, Southeast Exposure, a kayaking, small boat and ropes and zipline company. This year we have installed three auto belay devices on our climbing wall, and a Zipstop for the new Ocean Zip. We now have 9 ziplines. Bikes are also available for rent in town at 1224 Tongass. Betsey just returned from another section of her paddling around Florida. She also likes baking, skiing, and being a host!
Why the Owner Chose Ketchikan:
The home of Marjorie Voss and her dad and mom has been a landmark in the community of Ketchikan since the early 1900's. Marjorie was an active community member and especially loved her dog, writing and cooking. She was legally blind from her youth and used an old typewriter. She was active in the Tongass Conservation Society and also the Friends of the Library. All her pictures are kept at the Tongass Historical Museum in town. She donated her house to the library. I thought it could be turned into something special and decided to pursue her goal of sharing it with guests by purchased it from the city of Ketchikan in 2008. As everyone might imagine, it wound up being a project with many permits, details and required lots of $ and a positive attitude including Army Corps for the deck (the tide comes in under) I thought someday this will be complete and the most sought after short term downtown rental. I hope that business people and cruise line executives,employees, and small families will find the place as it is so close to the docks and downtown. You won't need a car.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The house has a good comfortable feel to it and the house is set back off the street. Being downtown does have its advantages. There are museums, shopping, the USFS Discovery Center, Parnassas Books, Chinook and Company, Parnassus Books and many restaurants that you can walk to. Transportation is usually provided if you are going on tour, and there are cab companies, too. The Deer Mt. Trail is the 'local hike' and it is in great shape. These are some of the activities available from around town. Although we have no glaciers here, you just have to get out of town or out in our 'front yard' -that is, the water! There is an antique store next door, and a Lutheran Church next to that. It is near the docks if you like people watching.
