About Wanda Vandergriff

We moved to Alaska in 1975 from El Centro, California, to get out of the 118 degree summer heat. We have not regretted our decision and still enjoy the beauty that surrounds us in Southeast Alaska. We enjoy fishing and sharing our home with our guests.

Wanda Vandergriff purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Wanda Vandergriff chose Ketchikan

This property is a short distance from the hustle and bustle of the City of Ketchikan (just 10 miles north of the downtown historical district and 7 miles from the airport and Alaska ferry terminal) in a rural setting nestled in the trees. We are also only 4 miles south of Knudson Cove Marina and Clover Pass Resort where you can take a charter to fish for salmon or a variety of bottom fish or rent a skiff for self-guided fishing.

What makes this apartment unique

Our properties are outfitted with just about everything you could want to feel "almost home". The kitchens are well-appointed including staples and condiments. The shared HE washer and dryer are located downstairs in the garage and laundry products are provided. The two apartments are connected by an stairway in the garage to make combining these two units very convenient for larger groups.

We went fishing for Silvers out of Knudson Cove and it was very conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and Wanda was very accommodating to our needs. It is very centrally located to be able to shop and get to our fishing destination within a few minutes. I would recommend this to anyone that would be looking for lodging in Ketchikan. Thank you again Wanda
