The most beautiful and relaxing place to stay I\'ve had during my holiday. A unique, carefully furnished and fully equipped studio with a wonderful terrace and unique view on the water. Thank you Mary!!

My wife, daughter and I have stayed at Anchor Inn multiple times. I must say this is the nicest \"condo\" on the water. We\'ve seen Whales, Sea Lions, Sea Otters and a host of other animals right from our balcony. Worth every penny and more. Truly one of the most relaxing vacations I take during the year. Thank you Greg and Mary.

Stay here, you won't be sorry!

The views from the rooms at the Anchor Inn by the Sea are amazing! Mary and Greg are amazing hosts. We stayed in the Aleksandra Suite, it was so nice. Very comfortable, tasteful decor. No oven, but a cooktop, microwave and grill on the porch. It was so nice to just sit and look at the beauty. The view from the room is fantastic. It is just a short 10 minute or less drive from town. I can\'t recommend it highly enough... We will stay there again and again!

A wonderful home away from home. Anchor Inn is like a 5 star retreat with all the comforts of home. Fabulous beauty on the water where you can enjoy morning coffee or evening drinks on the porch and watch the cruise ships, fishing boats, jumping fish, eagles, sea otters and more. We even had a baby deer come in the yard. Mary is the perfect hostess and even took our Christmas card pictures. We were very happy with the apartments and highly recommend Anchor Inn to others. Everything was first class! Extremely nice place to stay. We will be back!

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 of attention to make each stay enjoyable and memorable. Views from the kitchen table and the porch include fishing boats of all sizes and types, passenger ferries, cruise ships, cargo barges, local skiffs, and kayakers. Float planes fly to and from fishing camps and other destinations. Marine life includes humpback whales, orcas, porpoises and salmon. We have seen eagles fishing and watched ravens, mink and other wildlife. Sunsets are stunning.
