Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Attached Unit, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-9)

Anchor Inn by the Sea is located only four miles from downtown Ketchikan in one of the best shoreline fishing and whale watching areas that Ketchikan has to offer. The Inn has three private suites (1 & 2 bedroom) all suites have private entries and private decks.

The guest suites are as close as you can get to the ocean. Bring your camera because otter, seals, and porpoises are frequently seen. Eagles nest close by and are often seen perched on a pole near the water or pulling a salmon from the ocean. Humpback Whales and Orcas are the most exciting for our guests to see. We can guarantee that you will see some type of wildlife every day of your stay.

The one and two bedroom suites are outfitted with everything you need to feel right at home; equipped kitchens, dining area, living room and a full bath. The suites have either queen or king size beds, wireless Internet, premium cable TV, and either a full kitchen or a kitchenette.

Shoreline fishing is only a few yards away at Mountain Point.

The most beautiful and relaxing place to stay I've had during my holiday. A unique, carefully furnished and fully equipped studio with a wonderful terrace and unique view on the water.

Thank you Mary!!

My wife, daughter and I have stayed at Anchor Inn multiple times. I must say this is the nicest "condo" on the water. We've seen Whales, Sea Lions, Sea Otters and a host of other animals right from our balcony. Worth every penny and more. Truly one of the most relaxing vacations I take during the year. Thank you Greg and Mary.

Stay here, you won't be sorry!

The views from the rooms at the Anchor Inn by the Sea are amazing! Mary and Greg are amazing hosts. We stayed in the Aleksandra Suite, it was so nice. Very comfortable, tasteful decor. No oven, but a cooktop, microwave and grill on the porch. It was so nice to just sit and look at the beauty. The view from the room is fantastic. It is just a short 10 minute or less drive from town. I can't recommend it highly enough... We will stay there again and again!

Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful home away from home. Anchor Inn is like a 5 star retreat with all the comforts of home. Fabulous beauty on the water where you can enjoy morning coffee or evening drinks on the porch and watch the cruise ships, fishing boats, jumping fish, eagles, sea otters and more. We even had a baby deer come in the yard. Mary is the perfect hostess and even took our Christmas card pictures. We were very happy with the apartments and highly recommend Anchor Inn to others. Everything was first class! Extremely nice place to stay. We will be back!

We have been visiting Ketchikan once or twice a year for nine years. Anchor Inn by the Sea is our favorite place to stay. The views are spectacular, the grounds are beautiful, the accommodations comfortable and well stocked, pride of ownership is evident in each well appointed apartment, and the owners, Mary and Greg give us just the right amount of attention to make each stay enjoyable and memorable.

Views from the kitchen table and the porch include fishing boats of all sizes and types, passenger ferries, cruise ships, cargo barges, local skiffs, and kayakers. Float planes fly to and from fishing camps and other destinations. Marine life includes humpback whales, orcas, porpoises and salmon. We have seen eagles fishing and watched ravens, mink and other wildlife. Sunsets are stunning.

The best place to stay in Ketchikan

  • 5 of 5

Anchor Inn is THE most incredible place to stay in Ketchikan. We have vacationed in Ketchikan 5 times in the past 6 years and have stayed at the Anchor Inn each time. The owners of the Anchor Inn are amazing people. They were always available to answer questions or to make arrangements for activities we wanted to try or do. The pictures show the pride they take in their property.

The apartments are very clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated, and spacious. They were also equiped with everything we needed to cook some of our meals. The laundry facilities were just a few steps down the hallway and so convienent that we took fewer bags and washed and dryed our clothes.

The view faces the ocean and we never failed to see whales and other ocean life from our window. It was incredible! We caught fish from the rocks in front of the apartments and the sunsets from the deck are the most beautiful I have seen anywhere.

Just a few miles from the Anchor Inn is Herring Cove where we went to watch the black bears and eagles catch and eat fish from a hatchery. We have many hours of video of bears, eagles and salmon from our visits to Herring Cove. We have fished and snagged king salmon at Herring Cove too.

Ketchikan is truly an amazing place to visit. The photos included are beautiful and are a true reflection of an awesome place to stay while vacationing. We already have reservations at the Anchor Inn for another vacation this year, and we just can't wait!!! I would recommend staying at The Anchor Inn over any other place in Ketchikan!
