“Great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Stayed two nights in the Bear Room. View from the room and outside is fantastic. Right on the water. Although we didn't make use of it, there is a full kitchen to cook your own meals and a gas grill outside. Breakfast was nice with a cooked entree each morning. Make sure to ask for straight coffee if you want it, as Cheryl defaults to serving flavored coffees. Rooms were immaculate.

This was our first trip (of what we hope will be many more) to Sitka. Otter's Cove was as comfortable as our own home, and it was hard to leave. Cheryl was a very gracious host, who surprised us each morning with a beautiful, filling breakfast and all the coffee we could manage.

The patio was a delight to cook our own dinners and watch the amazing sunsets over the water as the Pinks were jumping for joy at just being alive!

Bonus was the washer/dryer, we could have left half our clothes home! Next time we'll pack lighter to bring home more fish!!

This is a very well appointed B&B. Clean with numerous amenities. The views are outstanding. We did not get to experience a full breakfast as we had to leave too early to catch a flight. But our hostess went out of her way to prepare a great continental breakfast for us early in the morning. We would go back.

I travel to Sitka once a month on business. Over the years, I have stayed at every hotel and B&B in town. Otter's Cove is by far the best place to stay in Sitka. Based on my years of travel to rural Alaska, I think it is probably one of the top B&B's in the state. Otter's Cove is located right on the beach in a beautiful setting, it is clean and impeccably furnished, and the breakfasts are outstanding. It is also reasonably priced and has all the amenities of a first-class hotel including free internet access. Staying at Otter's Cove is a positive rejuvenating experience that I highly recommend to anyone, whether you are visiting Sitka for business or pleasure.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms here. Two rooms face the ocean; one does not.

We just happened on Otter's Cove never having been to Sitka before, and what a find! We were very surprised at the privacy and appreciated the first rate quality of everything from beginning to end. The view is absolutely divine with the volcano and water activities right there out the windows. We laid in bed at night looking out the window until too dark to see in order not to miss something. So peaceful. The accommodations were PERFECT, and completely clean as new. Crisp sheets, clean linens, great bathroom accommodation; perfect in every way. Beautiful kitchen! and breakfast was served with care and thought such that it was a treat to awaken each morning to see what the breakfast fairy would bring. What a treat. We loved it from beginning to end. You should not miss this B & B opportunity - we will remember it forever. Thank you!

Our group of six kayaked to Sitka and Otter's Cove from Hoonah. Cheryl was there to meet us and get us settled in (and hot showers), gave us a good dinner recommendation. We had two wonderful breakfasts at the B&B. Cheryl went above and beyond the call of duty when she produced a truck and a flatbed trailer and helped us get kayaks and gear down to the ferry terminal for our return trip to Seattle. It was a cold, windy and rainy day and we could have paddled, but it would not have been much fun. Our whole group thought the B&B was wonderful and we'll recommend it to our friends with pleasure.

Room Tip: Rooms were all great! Two have ocean views.

This is perhaps the best place to stay in Sitka. A fellow traveler (a doctor) who stays in this B and BA each month for 2-3 days on TDY prefers this accomodation to any other hotel or B and B in Sitka. Since he is on an expense account that is an excellent reference. A first rate accommodation. Well appointed rooms, spotless kitchen, excellent view, great king size bed. Your hostess is thoughtful/organized and serves an excellent breakfast. You won't be disappointed with either the accommodation or the hostess here. Will McK

Room Tip: Pick a room on ocean side.
