About John McMahon
Hello. My name is John and I've lived in Alaska for over 40 years. I retired from the State of Alaska six years ago as Captain on the State ferry Columbia. I like walking, hiking, cooking, traveling, meeting people and being with family.
John McMahon purchased this House in 2005
Why John McMahon chose Ketchikan
I've had a Bed and Breakfast here for over three years. I enjoy meeting new guest and making their stay as enjoyable as possible. The location is perfect because its a short walk to the city center and a short walk in the other direction to Safeway, Plaza Mall and some good restaurants. The historic location, Captains Hill, was named because back in 1930's most of the homes were occupied by salmon and halibut captains. The view is to die for and it never gets old. Watching all the vessel traffic sail by, cruise ships, state ferries, fishing boats, private yachts and kayakers makes for a viewing spectacle that is just out of this world. The summer sunsets and the eagles hovering overhead makes this home, The View, one of the top rated spots to stay.
What makes this House unique
Location, location , location. You may pay a little more to stay but you get so much more for your dollar. All the amenities, location, Historic street and the fantastic view.

Property was just as described. John provided breakfast items for us which was a nice touch. He gave perfect instructions how to get there from airport. I would definitely would stay again. I give this property a 5 star ⭐️
John was obviously well versed in allowing gueststheir privacy.
Amazing clean and quiet place.
He also presented a great breakfast, added bonus.
The photo of this property does not do it justice and is not photo shopped either. Float planes, cruising boats and eagles.
Host (John) was outstanding! He is the definition of customer service....all our needs were met and more. You can not go wrong with this unit. The balcony overlooks the bay and city. Had no less than 20 eagles in view every time you step out on the balcony. Hope to return in the future.
Great guest. Respectful, communicated well and clean clean clean.
