The Alaska Nantucket House is your private retreat perched at the top of Knob Hill overlooking the harbor in the heart of Historic Ketchikan, a three minute walk to downtown. We offer one of the finest five star accommodations in Alaska. Luxury and comfort await each special guest in either the Penthouse Suite or the Island View Suite. Both suites are prepared for total comfort and privacy providing gracious accommodations for the business and adventure travelers.

Treat yourself to the most magnificent harbor view you will find in downtown Ketchikan. In our thousand square foot Penthouse Suite the front of the living room is a large wall of picture windows that frame a breath taking panoramic ocean view. Step out onto the Penthouse’s private deck with a fresh cup of coffee and watch the sunrise over Deer Mountain. From the foot of your balcony watch float planes, ferries, fishing vessels, cruise ships, and private yachts pass before your unobstructed view of Tongass Narrows.

Our Island View Suite offers a cozy two bedroom retreat with a beautiful view of Tongass Narrows. You can relax and enjoy the ocean breeze and the view of Pennock Island, Gravina Island and the mountain tops of Annette Island.

The photos posted are of our Penthouse Suite. Please email for photos of our lovely Island View Suite.

Just minutes from the Alaska Nantucket House you can participate in any number of activities including: Sportfishing, kayaking, cycling, flight seeing, hiking, racket ball, squash, swimming, sailing and whale watching. There are endless opportunities in this vacationers' paradise.

We offer discounts for extended stays.

PENTHOUSE rates start at $250 per night for a short 3-4 night stay, $220 for 5-6 night stay and $195 for a 7 night stay. ISLAND VIEW has a 7 night minimum with a rate of $165 for up to 2 people. Rates are reduced during off season months.

Awesome View and Location!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for us! We love being away from the crowds but close enough to walk to shopping, restaurants, etc. The view of the ocean with all the boats, float planes, cruise ships, etc. was entertaining as well as beautiful. It was better than watching a movie.

The studio apt was a perfect size for two, comfortable, and well-equipped. We enjoyed eating at Annabelles with the best salmon chowder ever! We rented a car one day to see outside Ketchikan, driving north and south to see more totem pole parks. Take the Misty Fjord Tour by Allen Marine boats which is incredible. Have a microbrew at Arctic Bar. Cape Fox Hotel has a great view. Shopping is excellent in Ketchikan but try to find locally owned shops with genuine AK items, away from the cruiselines owned shops on the waterfront. Mary and her son Gabe are very accommodating, helping you have the best stay possible. Enjoy Ketchikan from the Nantucket Penthouse Suite!

Perfect Ketchikan House

  • 5 of 5

Nantucket Penthouse Suite is an ideal place to stay in Ketchikan. The most beautiful views of Ketchikan from the living room window and the back deck. I needed a place to stay that didn't require a vehicle and this was the perfect location. I was able to walk to most all of the sites in Ketchikan. A short cab ride up to Knudson Cove to kayak and see the whales. Everything else I did was walkable. The owner was very accommodating in every way. Highly recommend!

This house is owned/operated by good people. If you do not mind walking up steep hills...the location is perfect. It is all about the view here. The downstairs or upstairs units are nice. I recommend this place

Outstanding Ketchikan Home. Scott - San Diego, Ca

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Ketchikan Nantucket House couldn't have been better and we will definitely be back. Great location being able to walk to everything. Very clean comfortable home. Great furnishings and much larger than what the pictures show.

The view is spectacular from the living room and the large deck with patio furniture makes the home even larger. Great view from the deck as well. Someone mentioned that the home is surprisingly quiet being so close to the cruise ship terminal and we have to agree hardly heard a sound.

Caught so many salmon I am going to have to give a bunch away to neighbors, family, and friends.

Can't wait to come back to Ketchikan and the Nantucket House will be first on our list.

Wonderful place to stay in downtown Ketchikan!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our first trip to Ketchikan and we were thrilled to be able to stay at this wonderful rental! We had originally booked the Island Suite because the Penthouse was already booked, but when the Penthouse had a cancellation, the owners upgraded us to the Penthouse at no extra charge! We loved staying in the Penthouse and enjoyed the amazing views. The rental was very clean, comfortable, and amazingly quiet for being right downtown! We would definitely recommend the Alaskan Nantucket House for anyone spending time in Ketchikan. We are looking forward to staying there again!
