About the owner: We are Mark and Bo Stahl. We are best friends who have been married for 31 years. Most of this time we served overseas as missionaries. To sum us up in a few words, we love God, our children, each other and playing and singing music. We have 3 children, our youngest is 18 and just recently left Alaska to attend college in Myrtle Beach, SC. My 20 year old son and his new wife of under a year are attending Christ For The Nations in Dallas, TX. Our oldest daughter was adopted while we were teacher in the Marshall Islands. She is married to a Russian man and now we have 4 wonderful grandchildren. They currently live north of Fairbanks, Alaska. Now that the children are grown and gone, Mark and I are ready to start the next great adventure of what life is like as empty nesters.
Why the Owner Chose Ketchikan: Last summer we had 13 people in a very small rental as we had recently relocated to Ketchikan from Dutch Harbor, Alaska and 2 of our children wanted to bring their friends from college to work for the summer; needless to say we were not going to relive that experience again. As soon as we walked into this home, we knew 'it' was the one, it would fulfill our needs and desires. The home was built in the middle of the 1950s and has served the community most as a convent and rectory for the local Catholic Church. When we purchased the home it came complete with it own little chapel and quite a few small bedrooms. Mark and I have worked hard to get the home in the condition it is today but we do still have a lot of little things that are needed to make it our home.
