Your hosts, Kent & Nicole, were raised in Utah before taking a respite to build a cabin on a wilderness island in Southeast Alaska. They later moved from the Wrangell area to Ketchikan, where they operated the local radio station for several years. As their next adventure, they explored the southern hemisphere, working abroad for more than a decade in Antarctica and New Zealand.

Nicole is a former newspaper and radio reporter, magazine editor and now is a natural resources attorney. After a long career in radio and television broadcast, Kent now leads technical projects for the National Science Foundation's U.S. Antarctic Program.

When not in the Lower 48 or southern hemisphere, Kent and Nicole can be found soaking up the rainforest at home in Ketchikan.

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

This article, written by Nicole years ago for the Ketchikan Visitors Bureau media kit, helps explain why we keep returning to Ketchikan and consider it 'home:'

'Step onto the dock in Ketchikan and feel it – the rhythm of an island life. Time spent in a place where all roads circle back to center; where the day’s schedule ebbs and flows to the tides, daylight hours, and Alaska Airlines flight schedule. No corporate time clock or freeway traffic here. And any industrial noise is that of an occasional floatplane or the slap of a fishing boat’s lines flying ashore.

Bound to a single, sprawling community that stretches some 35 miles from one end of the developed road system to the other, residents of this Alaska town and associated rural borough appreciate a refined sense of cohesiveness that comes from living together in some isolation. At once gritty, eclectic, and yet strikingly civilized, there is something in Ketchikan’s island life that speaks to most everyone.'

This home provides a convenient headquarters for exploring the best of the Panhandle. Live like a local and experience the real Alaska.
