Great place to stay in Sitka

We stayed at Scales & Shells during a work event in Sitka. The house was clean and well-stocked. The bedrooms are spacious. There were nice touches like snacks and coffee on hand. The house is located in close walking proximity to town and was also a quiet neighborhood. We loved it!
