An historic downtown location to enjoy all that Ketchikan has to offer. My home sits alongside the waterfall and the fish ladder and provides a quintessential Ketchikan experience . The historic Married Man's Trail leading to Creek Street passes by my front gate. Queen size bedroom with memory foam mattress overlooking the waterfall.

The space
Richard Bach, author of Johnathan Livingston Seagull and Illusions walked through my door one day and insisted on visiting. He said: "I have to stay here". You may well feel the same way. My home is down home comfortable and exudes an aura of calm where stories are shared. The waterfall next to the house is soothing and time slows down. Here is a special place that I have the privilege to call home and share with guests and friends. A glass front wood stove crackles and a driftwood rocking chair creaks beneath you as you gaze out the window over the creek watching the salmon leaping on their last journey home to spawn. It is a place of quiet reflection, inspired meals, baked bread, red wine and laughter shared.

Guest access
Guests will have access to the main floor, dining room and kitchen. A laundry is available for $5 per load. A shelf in the refrigerator is for your use.
The bathroom is shared.

Other things to note
My home was built in 1917 and the bedroom is on the second floor up a flight of fairly narrow stairs. The shared bathroom is on the lower floor. Guests with mobility issues will not enjoy this! I also have two Dachsunds, who will bark at you when you come in the door but will adore you after you stroke their ears! Dog lovers will appreciate this, but if you are allergic or ambivalent about dogs my home may not be a good fit for you. I am a hairstylist and massage therapist, if you think you may want one or both of these services we need to schedule early to make sure there is room for you.

Ketchikan, Alaska, United States

The creek, the waterfall and the quick access to shopping and the ocean. The neighborhood is busy with locals and tourists and plenty of time is spent chatting over fences.

I love to share my home with guests and friends. I love life, cooking, hiking, fishing and sharing stories.
During your stay
Interaction is on a case by case basis. I have a separate hair salon in the back of my property where I style hair so visiting tends to wander around my schedule. I try to run a Kosher household so I would appreciate no pork products in my home!
Cooking is my passion. Cooked meals and breakfasts are available during your stay. Breakfast $10-$15. Evening meals $20-$25.
If you would like to tour to the end of the road and see more of our town I enjoy taking an evening trip to see the tide flats where bears are often seen feeding on salmon as they return to spawn. A 2.5 hour trip is available for $40.
