This beautiful property is built on pilings on the shore of the Tongass Narrows overlooking the Channel islands to the northwest. It's the perfect home base for your getaway, whether it be romance or adventure you're after.
There's a magical feeling when you're at Coho Beach House -- one guest referred to it as 'The Healing House.'
Seeing marine life swim right under the deck; enjoying the weather and views (rain or shine) from any room; watching the bird activity, the passing boats and sea planes all lend to the pleasures of this home away from home.
This spot is known for having the best sunset views around, and if the water is calm, there are kayaks available for paddling around Ward Cove and the nearby Channel Islands. Or if it's stormy, just cuddle up, listen to the waves, and watch from the warmth of the house.
This is the perfect place to relax, have a little romance, or if you are looking for outdoor activities like fishing or hiking, the beach house is just a short drive from anywhere on the island.
- Downtown Ketchikan with all of it's related tourist attractions is just a 10 minute drive.
- The stairs to our private beach offers tide pool exploring, beach combing, and is an easy kayak entry for a sunset paddle.
Friends for 40 years, partners in Coho Beach House since 2004. The Odells and the Hooks dreamed of living near the water for years, and when they became owners of this property it was a dream come true. Both couples live on 'The Point' by the beach house, and are available if needed, but also respect the privacy of guests.
The particular location of the beach house is known in the community as having the best sunsets in the area.
The beach house was built in the late '40's or early '50's and had been well used and loved by many, but it was in dire need of repair.
We considered demolishing it, but instead rebuilt it from the pilings to the roof. The interior layout remains the same, but it's much more comfortable now. It was truly a labor of love, and we love to share its charm with our guests.
Outstanding wildlife viewing at your door. Watch the tide come and go; seals, sea lions, and the occasional whales swim by; and eagles in flight from the windows and deck at Coho Beach House.
The stairs to the beach offer easy access for tide pool exploring, and there are two kayaks available for paddling around Ward Cove and the nearby Channel Islands.
