  • “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!”


  • “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.”


  • “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 furnishings. 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.”
