About the property

Location, location, location! It doesn't get more convenient than this.

This is the upper main level four bedroom /two bath duplex. It is perched on the hillside above Ketchikan's busy harbor. Spouting whales, float planes, large ships as well as mountain and island views are just a few sights to keep you entertained from the windows of this harbor view cottage. The windows of the house are situated so that you will be captivated by the view from nearly every room.

The house is large and can accommodate large family groups. There is also a one bedroom apartment on the lower floor that can be rented in addition to the larger 4 bedroom main home.

Call 907-247-7117 for extended stay and special winter rates!!

The location is perfect! It is in a popular residential area of town along Water Street within close walking distance to the heart of downtown but back away from the hectic cruise ship traffic. If you prefer not to rent a car this would be perfect because what you can't walk to you can use the city bus which is only a block away.

For those that are in town to fish this cottage is close to the docks where most of the charter fishermen depart from. If you like, we would be happy to recommend a charter skipper for you.

Just the best

  • 5 of 5

4 fisherman on their annual Alaska trip...over the years we've stayed in just about every motel in town until we finally got smart and started renting houses through VRBO, and this one was the best yet! Everyone had their own bed/bedroom (no one had to sleep on the couch this time), and having more than one bath is definitely a plus with 4 guys. The kitchen is nicer than my kitchen at home...we cooked 90% of our meals here instead of eating out every night. And the view...nothing short of amazing. Watching the cruise ships docking a stones-throw away, float planes coming and going, boats galore, just an awesome setting. We'd sit out on the deck just staring out towards the water.

Short walk to the downtown tourist traps, restaurants, everything...we had a great stay!

Can't wait to book it for next year.

Great memories made at Captains Hill Inn

  • 5 of 5

The house held 6 people very comfortably and had a great view of the harbor. Clean, well maintained and supplied well. Good location in walking distance to town and away from cruise ships. Enjoyed our first experience in Ketchikan very much.

Captains HIll Inn

We first stayed at this house in 2015 and did not even think about another rental for this year's fishing excursion. The location is excellent, away from the cruise traffic but an easy walk to downtown and the fishing docks. The house is perfect for our party of 6, large kitchen and dining area, separate sleeping rooms (good for distance from the snorers), nice outdoor seating area overlooking the water, etc. We would very highly recommend it to anyone looking for an accommodation in Ketchikan!!

This house is very clean and updated and the view from the kitchen table is amazing! You can see all of the downtown activity. We met the owner while staying here and he is super nice! I hope we can come back soon!

Jay & Julie have an outstanding property. The house is superb; clean, very nicely furnished, conveniently located, and with a view that is spectacular! With seaplanes & cruise ships, Ketchikan harbor is extremely interesting. We can't wait to go back.
