Island home, just a short boat ride from Ketchikan and a world away from the hustle and bustle of town. Settle down on island time and watch the tide roll away. Large room overlooks the bay and the rainforest. Hot tub to watch the sunsets.
Living on an island on the water is what I love about life in Southeast Alaska. Being away from roads, cars and the busyness....that is why I love it here. Life moves a little slower....a whole lot quieter.
As I bring groceries down to my boat many visitors strolling the dock stop to ask: Do you live over there? They want to know what it is like.
How do you describe solitude, lazing beneath cedars on a moss bed, beach combing for treasure, soaking in a tub as the sun sets with seals in the bay, splashing the water's edge to watch the bioluminescence boil green beneath your feet...How do you describe just gazing as the tide rolls away...
Ketchikan is a noisy, busy, bustling town with one road and a whole bunch of people hustling to make the most of the short summer season. It has been my home for 20 years and I love it, but there is little better than climbing in the boat and motoring over to Pennock Island.
The Roost Room is a special place. With windows on all four walls overlooking the bay and the forest you can cosy up in the big easy chairs and try to read a book, if you are able to stop daydreaming out the window.
The room has one king bed and two singles and is located up a flight of stairs, the only room on the upper floor.
The home including kitchen, beaches, forest trails, hot tub and garden.
We love to connect but we also appreciate other's need for quiet. So it is on a case by case basis dependant on your wishes.

We love that there are no roads, the quiet, the west facing aspect for glorious sunsets. The water, always changing. Tide coming and going. The wildlife, otters, mink, marten, seals all going about their day in the bay. Herons and eagles manning the trees. The occasional boat passing by. That's our island neighbourhood. Pretty easy going living.

Hello there. I am Kim and I have called Alaska home since 1990. I first took a ferry trip through the Inside Passage and the next year came back and kayaked from Juneau to Ketchikan, a journey of three months and the start of a long love affair with the country.
Today I enjoy sharing the town and country I call home. I challenge myself with gardening in a rain forest that sheds 13 feet of rain a year. If that was not enough you need to contend with the wonderful population of deer.
I enjoy yoga, wood working and renovating homes. In the summer I work as a guide to see the bears feeding on the salmon in remote locations.
It is always a joy to meet people from around the world and see the world I love through new eyes.
