My husband and I stayed in the Orca Suite from July 3-11, 2015. What an unforgettable experience! The views from the private deck were so incredible! I could have slept out on the porch. The suite was very clean and well appointed; everything from enough towels to last for the week plus wine glasses (important!), silverware, spices, and more. I... More

Anchor Inn by the Sea was fantastic - stunning views, great location and all the comforts of home. Loved the covered porch to relax and observe nature. Very peaceful and quiet here. Mary is a great hostess. We loved our suite and were even lucky enough to see a bear in the hills across the street and a humpback whale... More

The BEST lodgings available in all of Ketchikan. Set right on the shores of the Tongass Narrows you can watch whales and seals swim by just outside your window. We lived in Ketchikan for 3 years can say that this is the best lodgings, not just in Ketchikan, but anywhere. The apartments are beautifully decorated, immaculate, and generously stocked with...

Our first stay was the Admiral's Suite. This year there was only me and my husband so we were in the Aleksandra's Suite. All are wonderful!... More

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...

My husband and I just returned home after a week at Anchor In by the Sea. We stayed in the Orca Suite which is a one bedroom with a kitchen. The views of the ocean were fantastic from both the inside, which had a big picture window, and the private deck. When we got there Mary and Greg made us... More

Fantastic service where the locals go... Need I say more? They have a resident Dauchtsund named Rufus that is great, the couple running it do a top notch job with all the niceties given to outsiders as well as locals (if which there were more locals than outsiders). The local crowds are top notch friendly as well! Would highly recommend.

My husband and I stayed at this property after a cruise to explore the area. The one bedroom unit was fully stocked and was very comfortable. The views were amazing with a perfect deck to watch wildlife, boats, and seaplanes. Mary was so helpful and thoughtful. Perfect slice of tranquility and just out of town enough to have a perfect...

I travelled back and forth to Ketchikan for over a year for work. I always stayed at The Anchor Inn and never wanted to stay anywhere else. It is quiet and comfortable with everything you need and with amazing views that are constantly changing. I took hundreds of pictures from my deck. I watched Orca whales, humpbacks, seals, otters, beautiful... More

I had the utmost pleasure of staying in this retreat during a temporary work assignment and the picture-perfect view was one of the main reasons for extending an additional month. If you enjoy the air after a rain then you will find Ketchikan heavenly with The Anchor Inn By The Sea the ideal anchor for your visit. Mary and Greg... More
