This place is great! I needed a place to go and unwind after a friend's funeral and this was the best place to decompress. The living space is very roomy and the garden was a delight day and night time. Our host, Linda Forbes was a delight to have around. Very friendly but not intrusive. She looked in on us to see if we had everything we needed but mostly we were on our own. It is out of the way from town, which is what I wanted and so you need a car. But if you want to get out and walk down toward the water you can do that too. I highly recommend this to anyone going to Sitka. My friend and I could see a Girls' spa week there and we'd fill the house.
