Ketchikan house description

Welcome! Located six miles south of Ketchikan at Mountain Point, this family-friendly house is steps from the water, fishing, boat launch, and the scenic walking path to town. This home offers all you need for a long weekend or multiple-week stay in the Ketchikan vicinity, the perfect hub to exploring scenic Southeast Alaska.

Like you, we travel. And we know what we like: those extra touches that make for a relaxing, comfortable stay. Our goal is to provide simple, pleasing accommodations with everything you need to enjoy your time in Southeast Alaska.

Each bedroom features quality Queen-sized beds and high-count, 100% cotton linens and towels. Internet and phone access make your stay productive and allow you to keep in touch with friends, family and business. The home also features an interesting library of local lore and guidebooks. The 3-bedroom house, located closest to the water, is adjacent to a separate long-term rental house.

We are always available to answer your questions about local flora and fauna, with tips for an “insider” Alaska experience.

Easy transportation access is available via South Tongass highway, with the walking path from town nearby.

                          Year Purchased: 1998

                          About the owner: Your hosts, Kent & Nicole, were raised in Utah before taking a respite to build a cabin on a wilderness island in Southeast Alaska. They later moved from the Wrangell area to Ketchikan, where they operated the local radio station for several years. As their next adventure, they explored the southern hemisphere, working abroad for more than a decade in Antarctica and New Zealand. Nicole is a former newspaper and radio reporter, magazine editor and now is a natural resources attorney. After a long career in radio and television broadcast, Kent now leads technical projects for the National Science Foundation's U.S. Antarctic Program. When not in the Lower 48 or southern hemisphere, Kent and Nicole can be found soaking up the rainforest at home in Ketchikan.

                          Why the Owner Chose Ketchikan:
                          This article, written by Nicole years ago for the Ketchikan Visitors Bureau media kit, helps explain why we keep returning to Ketchikan and consider it 'home:' 'Step onto the dock in Ketchikan and feel it – the rhythm of an island life. Time spent in a place where all roads circle back to center; where the day’s schedule ebbs and flows to the tides, daylight hours, and Alaska Airlines flight schedule. No corporate time clock or freeway traffic here. And any industrial noise is that of an occasional floatplane or the slap of a fishing boat’s lines flying ashore. Bound to a single, sprawling community that stretches some 35 miles from one end of the developed road system to the other, residents of this Alaska town and associated rural borough appreciate a refined sense of cohesiveness that comes from living together in some isolation. At once gritty, eclectic, and yet strikingly civilized, there is something in Ketchikan’s island life that speaks to most everyone.'

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          This home provides a convenient headquarters for exploring the best of the Panhandle. Live like a local and experience the real Alaska.
