This is a beautiful 1400 sq. ft. 3bd 2 bath house on a tree studded lot. The house has hardwood floors in the living room/dining room and bedrooms. Newly tiled floors in kitchen, bathrooms and mud room. This house is located in the quaint little town of Coffman Cove. Coffman Cove offers stream fishing for red, pink, silver, and chum salmon. Steelhead, dolly varden, and rainbow trout are also plentiful in the streams. King salmon can be caught in the cove May through July. Crabbing from rented skiffs produce an abundance of dungeness crab. Clam digging at low tide is also very rewarding.
Bear watching, cave exploring, whale watching, hiking, kayaking are some of the many things to experience in this area.
To get to Coffman Cove you can take a floatplane from the Ketchikan airport or take the Ferry to Hollis and drive on a paved road to Coffman Cove. The Ferry ride is a beautiful 3 hour trip where you can see the occasional Orca or Humpback whale from the boat.
We also have a Chevy
Suburban for rent and a 16 ft. Skiff for rent, we can arrange charter trip for Halibut and bottom fish or whale watching for additional charges.

Wayne and Sharon Joyner: Owners of Red Dawg Retreat vacation rental
We have vacationed in this area for several years and have loved every minute spent there. When the opportunity arose to purchase this house, we decided to share our experiences with others at affordable prices. We cater to the group of fisher persons or the family looking for an unforgettable vacation. We chose Coffman Cove over other locations on Prince of Wales because of numerous activities around this area and the friendly helpful people living there.
Wayne Joyner purchased this house in 2010
My wife and I stayed here with our in laws the first week of August in 2014 and had an absolutely amazing time!!! The house is clean, has all the amenities you could need and is perfectly located to explore the island. All of the rooms had comfortable beds, the living is spacious and with plenty of room for people to relax, and the kitchen has just about anything you could potentially need. The washer and dryer and great so you don't have to pack as many clothes. Having the chest freezer is especially helpful to keep your frozen before you trip home. We rented the suburban but had a few issues with it on the first trip out. But one call to Wayne the owner and we had a new suburban and were back on the road in under an hour! That is a top notch owner who will take care of the guest!
During our stay we fished all over the island and like everyone has said, it's truly amazing! We caught more fish than we could potentially bring home. There is a map on the wall highlighting a few places to fish but exploring for new spots is half the fun. Overall, we absolutely loved this place and would definitely recommend it! I know we'll be back for sure!
Stayed at the RED DOG RETREAT in Prince of Wales, Al from 7/5 until 7/19, 2014. In attendance were 5 fishermen from upstate NY. The cottage was spacious and provided excellent accommodations for the five of us. The kitchen had a big refrigerator, stove, dish washer and plenty of quality dishes and utensils. A large screen TV with satellited connection to keep track of world affairs. A large deck was used to relax as well as a place to steam Dungeness crabs. A fish cleaning station at the Coffman Cove Marina was handy for cleaning fish. Residents were very friendly and provided good advice on where to fish or sight see.
A freezer was handy to hold the fish we caught. The caretaker who lived across the street responded to our every request. Two crab pots were provided and resulted in many Dungeness Crabs every time we checked them. The rented skiff gave us the ability to go out from the Cove and catch Halibut, Cod and Salmon. The fishing was outstanding in both the ocean and the streams. We caught Halibut, Salmon, Silver and King Salmon, Dolly Varden and Cutthroat Trout. The owner of the RED DOG RETREAT was extremely helpful and responded to our every request.
Red Dawg Retreat was a great vacation home. We travel often, and the accommodations were beyond what we expected. Our group of three couples had plenty of space to enjoy our time there. The kitchen was well equipped, beds comfortable and the entire house clean. The owner and property manager were extremely helpful and answered all our questions. Renting the Suburban was necessary for us to be able to get to the streams and rivers to do our salmon fishing. The fishing map posted on the wall was very helpful. Coffman Cove is a small town, but everyone we met was friendly and informative. We would definitely recommend this rental to anyone that is interested in this type of Alaska experience.
The previous reviews are accurate. We loved our week nights here. The freezer was just what we needed and the laundry machines was also. You can't go wrong here;)
The house had just been cleaned when we arrived. All we had to do is drop our bags.We had everything we needed and more.This house is equiped with plenty of pots, pans, grill, glass ware, cleaning supplies, etc. We cooked every night and had everything at our disposal.
The location is perfect for spending some quiet, peaceful time secluded from business of big city life.
The owner of this house was very helpful and provided tons of local information.
We come back with limit of of fish: salmon, halibut, dolly varden and yellowaye rockfish
I recommend this house if you want to relax and disconnect from hustle & bustle of everyday life.
I am already booked for next year.
Some info to polish friends : Bardzo mily, czysty, nie smierdzacy stechlizna i wygodny domek. Wyposazony we wszystkie sprzety gospodarstwa domowego, do dyspozycji samochod i w przyszlosci lodz.
Otwarta przestrzen-kuchnia, jadalnia i pokoj dzienny pozwalaja na spedzenie czasu razem. 3 sypialnie wygodne i niekrepujace. Wlasciciel niesamowicie przyjazny i udzieli wszelkich informacji , wskaze miejsca na ryby, zrobi rezarwacje, zaaranzuje transport z promu itp.
A lowienie ryb- bajka. Odkrylismy, ze Dolly Varden (najsmaczniejsz ryba jaka jadlem) najlepiej biora od poludniowej strony Luck Lake na plastikowa kuleczke koloru lososia z malenkim ciezarkiem. Trzeba miec wodery, aby dojsc rzeka do jeziora i rzucac pod szuwary. Na halibuta czy rockcod ( i lososia w sumie tez, latwiejsze lowienie) trzeba wynajac lodz lub wyczarterowac z kapitanem. Polecamy Lee Harper, mozna zobaczyc na youtube jakie sztuki wyciaga!
Z czystym sumieniem polecam !!!
Cabin was great.All appliances were new and worked perfectly.Beds were very comfortable.Well stocked with linens and towels.Used Wayne's crab pots and caught 7 or 8 nice crabs which we cooked in the crab cooker.Rented a skiff at Coffman cove and caught a couple of nice halibut and a bunch of rockfish.Salmon fishing was a little slow due to low water but we caught enough to bring home.Overall a great place to stay.
Our group of 5 stayed at this home the 3rd week of August and it was fabulous. It was clean, well maintained, everything worked well, and many details were well thought out. The layout was great for our group. We used all 3 bedrooms, the living room was spacious with plenty of couch space and even though we fished virtually every hour of daylight we enjoyed watching a few pre-season football games in the evening (Go Hawks!). The kitchen had everything we needed, the new washer and dryer made it so we did not have to pack 7 days worth of clothes and the crab pots/crab cooker were great for the days we had a boat rental. We had some typical rainy days in SE Alaska but my wife and mom were very easy to keep happy knowing that we had a very nice, warm, and dry home to come back to each day. Boot dryers and hooks to hang waders outside the house under the dry porch allowed us to keep our gear dry and ready for the next days fishing. The suburban was a great value for our group and again the details (like nice big cooler and rod holders in the car) made fishing easy! We saw blacktail deer in the yard right next to the porch of the house as a bonus. The fishing, the people, the cabin, and the car were all fantastic. From the time I started inquiring about the property for rental through our trip home the owners made sure we were well taken care of and available to answer our questions. Anyone at all interested in visiting POW island should not hesitate in renting this home. Our family thoroughly enjoyed it and we will definitely be back.
