Diana greeted us and made sure if we had any questions we knew how to contact her. The home was so much more than we ever imagined. Many extra perks. Would love to come back here!

Awesome place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was a beautiful place to stay. It has everything. The view was great. 2 decks that wrap around the home. Tastefully decorated. Close to shops but far enough away that you have your privacy. We would definitely recommend this place!

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The location, both for being away from town (5 minute drive) and completely private from neighbors, and the excellent view were the outstanding features of this property. We stayed for 6 nights 7/5/17-7/11/17 and were more than happy to just be in the property and enjoying the atmosphere and view. We saw a bear in the immediate neighborhood and several eagles perched in the nearby trees. There was a constant parade of float planes, small boats and cruise ships to watch going by. Never a dull moment! The deck got a lot of use from us. Inside, the cabin was full of everything you could need, especially in the kitchen. Many spices and condiments and every utensil you could think of. Lots of travel books, restaurant menus, even a jigsaw puzzle of Ketchikan. Diana was responsive to the one issue that needed attention, other than that she gave us our privacy. We would definitely go back!

Beautiful Ketchikan home

  • 5 of 5

First class accommodations is what comes to mind. Beautiful setting, territorial views of water and mountains perched privately high in the woods. Diana has thought of every amenity. I wouldn't change a thing!
