About Jess and Sue Mickelson

Jess and Sue Mickelson

Why Jess and Sue Mickelson chose Ketchikan

Bought this property in 2011 when we moved permanently to Ketchikan and once we saw the view we were sold!

2014 - We finished the guest house so we could share the area with others.

What makes this cottage unique

Car available thru can have your car waiting for you when you arrive and if you catch so much fish you need help getting it to the airport we can help you with that too!! (Let's hope this is a problem!!)

"Charming Cottage with a Great View"

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home in June for 5 nights it has every thing you will

need to have a great stay. Jess and Sue are amazing owners and are there to answer any questions or take care of any home needs you may have. The home is decorated with a Nautical theme and that is very well done. The furniture is very comfortable and new with lots of pillows and warm blankets. The view from the home is beautiful you can see all kinds of wildlife i.e. Bald Eagles, Stitka Deers and more species of Birds. We will definitely be back

Our family of four spent a week in Ketchikan at Channel View. It was a perfect fit for us. We also rented the Nissan Cube available on Turo and were pleased with both.

The cottage is across the highway and up a hill from the water in a quiet neighborhood. There is a great view of the water from the front window and deck. The bedroom looks out into a forested area. We had sunny, warm weather and appreciated the outdoor seating. At low tide, there are some places you can explore the rocky beaches within walking distance. It is not within walking distance from downtown.

Our teenage boys shared the loft. It was great for them. The stairs are steep and open on one side as can be seen in the photos - this might need to be a consideration if you have small children or an elderly person that would need to be in the loft. The loft has a double bed and two twin beds. There is also a bed in the downstairs bedroom. All of the beds had nice linens and there were lots of extra blankets and towels.

The kitchen had everything we needed for making simple meals.

There are movies, books, puzzles, and some games available as well. We had such beautiful weather that we did not need to use them but they would be good for a rainy day and I have been told that there are a lot of those.

The cottage is decorated nicely. It is a charming and comfortable place for a vacation.

Jess and Sue made sure that we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.

I loved having a washer and dryer. We were very wet from fishing all day! I loved having access to a full kitchen to cook my own food that we caught. There was even room to invite cousins over for dinner. We liked being on the other end of town away from the hustle and bustle of tourists. Very close to breath taking hikes and waterfalls. June 6-12 were our dates and the weather was colder, rainy, and wonderful. In Utah it was already 90 and we liked the colder weather. Fishing was AWESOME. We are going to come next year and bring out kids!! THANKS!!
