Very quaint spacious home approx. 3 min. walk to the store and restaurant, bar and 5 minutes to the dock. Originally the old School for Coffman Cove logging camp where all the children attended school. 3 separate bedrooms are upstairs. 2 sets of oversized bunk beds in each bedroom and larger bedroom has two queens in it. Bathroom is very spacious and downstairs with tub/shower combination.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to prepare a Thanksgiving feast or a Salmon/Halibut fest! Gas range and stove top. We have a separate workshop just before entering the home with a large freezer for keeping your fish to take home with you. There is a local fish packing operation that will package it ready to go on a plane home. We also have friends who will rent you a boat to fish with or we can help you set up a charter. King Salmon and Halibut abound!
The laundry room is in the house with full size washer and dryer. Canoe available!!
Welcome to The Historic old School House now a home, Veteran owned and operated. We are located in Coffman Cove Alaska, on Prince of Wales island in Southeast Alaska. Kevin Moore bought property as soon as the logging company Valentine Logging closed down & moved the original school house we went to school in as small boys.
Kevin’s life and livelihood were based on the abundant timber of Prince of Wales Island. Kevin moved with his family to Coffman Cove in 1976 to work for Valentine Logging as a tree faller. (See Video) With these skills, he & I fixed & restored the School House into a home.
Our lodge is just what you need to relax and get away from it all. There is a TV(NO TV SERVICE AVAIL) & videos & some games & puzzles but I advise you to bring your own! Let’s face it, you are not going to be spending a lot of time in the house, only to sleep, eat and shower. There is so much to offer on the Island that you will find yourself not hanging out inside. Wild flowers are prolific all summer long. Beach combing is very fun! Canoe at Luck Lake!
We offer basic cooking stuff, pots, pans, utensils, plates and such. If you require anything else, just ask, we will find it or provide it. If you are crabbing, we have a crab cooker on site that is free to use. We even provide you with a beautiful propane BBQ.
Coffman is a short walk from the house. where you can grab a beer or a burger and check out the locals as they pass by. The town is small so it will not take much time to learn their faces and names.
Coffman Cove has some of the best Salmon and Halibut fishing in the world. You can either rent a pro or you can go it alone. There is something for everyone.
If you decide to rent a boat, do not forget to go check out some beaches and try your luck at beach combing. Bring a tide book because you can get dry docked fairly quickly if you are having too much fun.
IF you feel the need to connect to the outside world as opposed to being "off the grid" for awhile--if you walk to or park by the library--you can pick up internet and most of the time make a call out or text.
