What Others Had To Say

Perfect stay at the stone lantern house

Perfect setting
Well appointed kitchen
The VIEWS from every room

The perfect retreat location

We gathered here for a Womxn in Leadership retreat and this was the perfect location. Quiet, beautiful, serene, warm, incredible views, responsive hosts. We will be back!

Best rental house in Sitka

Words and pictures do this house little justice. It is simply a perfect place to stay for me and my family. I love the architecture and how the house seems to simply grow from the rock. The morning and evening views of Mt Edgecumbe, when the clouds allow for them, are breathtaking. Its close enough to town for easy access to Fish Baranof, and other town attractions, but far enough away that you feel like you have your own island each night. It is definitely a place you wont forget.

Wedding Weekend Hub

We rented SLH during the shoulder season so we would have a place to host our family and friends during our wedding weekend, and we are so glad we did! The open floor plan makes the upper level a fantastic gathering space. Everyone was blown away by the beautiful architecture ans views, and it felt special to be able to spend time together in such a clean, luxurious home. We'd definitely recommend this stay to any Sitkans who are looking for a local getaway for their wedding, family reunion, etc. We thought parking might be an issue, but it worked really well to have folks park on the SMC end of the road ans enjoy the beautiful walk out to the house on Cannon Island Road.

Serenity in Sitka

Having made several excursions to Sitka over the years I am more than familiar with the availability of Homes throughout the community. None can hold a candle to this property, based on the view, property features, and soothing calm of the funishings. Whether sitting and enjoying the scenery from every room, or hosting as large dinner party this is the property for you. I go to Sitka to recharge, I came away refreshed and with great memories.

Perfect Sitka Location

Views from every window. Quiet, relaxing, and clean. Every detail of this property is well thought out. Our second stay here, and it won't be our last!


Every design decision in this house was conscious of the breathtaking nature surrounding it. The picture frame windows and the minimal design really allowed the views to shine. The hosts were sweet and attentive and very kind about sharing our posts from the trip as well. Definitely recommend a stay here.

Wonderful View & Beautilul Location!

The views, especially out the living room window, are wonderful! There are glass windows everywhere. The house had more amenities than we could use. The house was very clean when we arrived. My only complaint was the Keurig was dirty inside. This is a pet peeve of mine. The master bedroom has an open door shower but it's too small to not have a door. When you shower, water gets all over the bathroom floor. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. The master bedroom (the only one we used) could use some room darkening shades of some type. There is a sleep mask in the nightstands but I can't use them. The light starts pouring in around 4 AM. The window above the master bedroom bed needs a shade of some type. There is another house across the road that has the ability to see in, in my opinion. We didn't feel totally comfortable with that window not covered. There is only one TV in the house. It's located upstairs in the fireplace room. All the programing is streaming-based and took some getting used to as there were no instructions. A small desk with a comfortable chair would have been a nice addition. We were there for R&R but did manage to see Fortress of the Bear, the Alaska Raptor Center, the Sitka Sound Science Center, and did some hiking at Herring Cove. We ate at Channel Club, Mangiare Italian Restaurant (the Italian Sausage Mostaccioli was delicious!), Mean Queen, and Campfire Kitchen (excellent pizza and located inside Harbor Mountain Brewery). We wanted to eat at Ludvig's Bistro but they were closed. This was our 3rd trip to Sitka, 1st time staying at Stone Lantern House, and we can't wait to go back! Yes, we definitely would stay at Stone Lantern House again!


very nice!

My Happy Place

The house is amazing and exactly as shown on the website. There are so many amenities that are above the quality of most rentals; the grill was immaculate and clean -literally like it had never been used. I couldn't believe the kitchen had stainless-steel copper ringed cookware. Every view is framed around the gorgeous outside. The meditation/tea room is a dream. The fire pit and kayaks are also nice compliments. I wish I could move in permanently! MY DREAM HOME! Thank you and I can't wait to return.

Stone Lantern House August 2022

We rented the house for a family reunion in Sitka. The property exceeded our expectations. It is beautifully constructed, well stock with all your needs plus many extras. The setting and views are amazing and even through you are attached to the Sitka road system, you feel you are on an island. It was everything we hoped for and made our trip. Thanks.

Lovely stay

A beautiful location to enjoy ocean views from every window. We loved the privacy for an ocean dip and bonfire. The open layout was ideal for a lunch gathering with family.

Sitka - Paris of the Pacific

From the moment we were welcomed into your home, it felt like we were home. Cyndy welcomed us and showed us everything we needed to see and know about the house. Instructions were explained so we could enjoy out short visit. The house was most comfortable and the hosts very helpful in ensuring our stay was an experience to be remembered for a lifetime. The location is stunning. The views of Sitka Sound surrounded us. We could not have asked for more. We are just sorry we missed the Northern Lights - they were seen the night before we arrived and the night we left. Just another reason to return in the future.

Such a Special place!

This was the perfect location for our stay. Christine and Cyndi were great to work with, very professional and made sure our visit was nothing short of excellent. The house was so clean, and had everything we needed. Definitely looking forward to staying at the Stone Lantern House again in the future, I would highly recommend this rental.

Kicked off 2022 in the best way

Had a 2-day work retreat with colleagues in January 2022 and set intentions for our coming work year in the most beautiful and rela environment. It was perfect.

Wonderful Visit

This was a great experience for my family. Thank you for the incredible stay.
