About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, 1600 sq ft, separate studio apartment
We have recently expanded our services as a fully furnished home to month to month leases for professional, project managers, or short term needs for folks, available between September and May. Please inquire for the special rate.
Home area is 1600 sq. feet. Waking up to a morning cup of coffee or tea, while gazing out the many windows facing the ocean is a pleasure.
Just a few minute walk from downtown Kodiak, the house faces due south, with spectacular views of the ocean and nearby Woody Island and Near Island. Relax and watch the abundant wildlife of Kodiak: many eagles, sea lions, sea otters and sea lions. Our home's location is the perfect view for watching the many commercial fishing and pleasure boats coming and going. We provide a booklet to help identify the many different vessels.
The first floor has a warm, maple kitchen, our cupboards are full of pots and pans, utensils, and dishes. Local Kodiak cookbooks are supplied for a special seafood dinner, of your local catch of the day! Lacey also provides her favorite recipes from three decades of cooking while salmon fishing over the summer to a large crew (sourdough pancakes, homemade breads, sour cream coffee cake, a unique wild salmon BBQ marinade, wild beach green salads, double-crust nut cheese cake!! and more!)
The main living room and dining table are in this area. Through the french doors, are a brand-new bathroom/laundry room, and bedroom and a small sitting area with the television and dvd library. The second floor has a large bedroom with spectacular channel view, a large bathroom, and a small area for an extra futon, or inflatable bed. (There is plenty of room for more than two additional beds, especially casual sleeping for kids).

Year Purchased: 1984
About the owner: We are a long-time Kodiak commercial fishing family for 35 years. We have extensive knowledge about the Kodiak Archipelago, fishing, recreational activities, bear and wildlife viewing, with many personal friends who operate those recreational, sport fishing, and wildlife viewing businesses. We can recommend our own pilots for bear viewing and sightseeing on local air charters. We have raised our children commercial fishing for wild salmon in Uganik and Viekoda Bays since 1983. Both Lacey and Chris have extensive community work and experience with local fisheries-related projects. Lacey is a founding member of the Kodiak Maritime Museum, and led the design of the colorful, unique interpretive sign project, located on the boardwalk & downtown harbor across from the marine businesses, coining the term 'Celebrate Our Maritime Heritage' . The signs are featured in a colorful booklet Waterfront Guide, for sale at the museum office.
Why the Owner Chose Kodiak, AK, USA:
Because we like seeing the boats come and go through the Channel! Fishing has been our way of life for 35 years. Kodiak is ALL about commercial fishing, the largest port in Alaska. Check out all of the activities in Kodiak--from research facilities, to busy processing plants, harbors with 1000 vessels, the largest Coast Guard Base in the US, the types of vessels that fish, the harvesting of sustainable resources--Kodiak is the community to visit. You will see fishermen hanging nets, boats in the boatyard, the hub bub in the summer getting ready to salmon fish..Our home is perfect for the summer visitor, because we are salmon fishing between late May and mid-September. We purchased the house in 1984, choosing to be near the ocean, and have completely replaced the older home, into a three story home, with a warehouse and apartment on the bottom floor, and home on the top two floors. The house is 8 miles from the Kodiak airport, five minutes from the Kodiak Ferry Dock, a front seat view of the boatyard, five minute walk to downtown Kodiak, the Kodiak Visitor Center, the Alutiiq Museum, Baranof Museum, National Fish and Wildlife Service Visitor's Center, groceries , restaurants, marine supply and outfitting businesses, the movie theater, the boat harbor, Chamber of Commerce. There is a walking path along the front of the home, which goes east toward Spruce Cape, along the water and among colorful Kodiak homes. Nearby activities are kayaking, golf, recreational fishing, several rivers and creeks with abundant salmon fishing, the Buskin River, Mill Bay creek, and out the road to Kalsin, Womens, and Middle Bays with major salmon runs. You will learn all about a profession, the traditions, the net hanging, in Kodiak...a vibrant community. While other fishing towns have disappeared, you will be treated to a constant opportunity for photos. Don't forget to see the Waterfront Interpretive Signs on the downtown harbor boardwalk..14 of them, full color!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will be treated to a learning experience in a bustling port, with plenty of photo opportunities. Guests receive a complimentary 'Celebrate our Maritime Heritage: Waterfront Guide' to aid in watching the fishing vessels pass by, the view of Near and Woody Island, access to the ocean is about 200 feet away, the home is located in a tiny, quiet neighborhood, surrounded by spruce trees, rose bushes, and raspberries! For kids, a city park is a five minute walk, past the grassy area in the cove, to St. Herman's St.
