What Others Had To Say

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.

Stunning

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!

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.

Wonderful Visit

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

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.

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.
