Our Lodge sits just steps away from Alaska’s famous inside passage in the idyllic town of Coffman Cove. The Cove is located on the northeast coast of the breathtakingly beautiful Prince of Wales Island in Southeast Alaska. The area is well known as a fisherman’s paradise. The salmon runs are abundant throughout the summer and into the early fall. Halibut, cod, and yellow eye are caught regularly just a few minutes from the docks. Delicious Dungeness Crabs are prolific in the waters around the Cove (we have crab pots available for use). The nearby rivers and lakes are popular for fresh water fishing. The Lodge makes an ideal base for hunting black bear and the Sitka black tail deer in the fall. You can rent a boat for a self-guided adventure or hire a local guide.
All of the community amenities are within walking distance of the Lodge; including a well-stocked convenience store and restaurant, a local watering hole, the library (with free internet), the harbor and a beach park.
The Lodge was the original school house for the community and is fully equipped and furnished for your dream Alaskan adventure. The centerpiece of the Lodge is a handcrafted spiral staircase that leads to three bedrooms, each with two beds which easily accommodates a total of 6-8 guests. The kitchen is fully furnished as expected. There is a full bathroom with a shower/tub combination along with a separate laundry room. The outdoor space includes a gas grill and a picnic table on the large front porch. Included with your accommodations is a dedicated room for processing and storing your fish and game; including a commercial grade vacuum packer and a freezer. We want to make sure that you can enjoy and share your catch long after your adventure ends.
To get here, most folks will fly into Ketchikan from Seattle on either Alaskan Airlines or Delta Air. From Ketchikan you can arrange for a short flight to the Island with Island Air Express or other carriers based out of Ketchikan. Alternatively, you can book passage to and from the Island via the Alaska Inter- Island Ferry Authority. Getting to the Island is easy and it is part of the Alaskan adventure. Once you arrive at the Island a rental vehicle is a must. Hollis Adventure Rentals offers a variety of rental vehicles and other equipment that you may need for your adventure. We have been coming to the Island for years; if you have questions don’t hesitate to ask. For more information contact us or see us online.
