DIY Fishing Lodge
These unique Alaska vacation rentals are located on the North end of Pennock Island (map) just ½ mile across Tongass Narrows from downtown Ketchikan, Alaska. The 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom homes are situated on three acres of wooded beach property. Each home offers a quiet relaxing environment, a private dock, and stunning views of Ketchikan’s spectacular waterfront.
Our self guided fishing lodge makes for an ideal getaway, without being too far from Ketchikan. A five-minute boat ride across Tongass Narrows will put you in downtown Ketchikan. There are many convenient places to moor your boat in Ketchikan. Most moorage locations are located within one block of shopping centers, restaurants, grocery stores, historical attractions, etc.
Fishing guests can depart daily for their Alaska fishing experience from the home’s private float.
Many guests opt to go charter fishing for one or more days, and then spend the remainder of their Alaska fishing trip in the rental boat fishing on their own for Salmon, Halibut, Rock Fish, Lingcod, and Crab.
All guests will be picked up at Ketchikan International Airport. Upon pickup you will be transported directly to our private dock. Once you have arrived we will check you into your beach house. We will also be happy to point out the location of open moorage stalls, the fish processing facility, grocery stores, tackle shops, and local restaurants. Rental boat clients will be orientated on the boat’s safety and fishing equipment.
Professional fish processing is located on the Ketchikan side of Tongass Narrows. Drop your fish off each day and have it cleaned, filleted, frozen, and vacuumed packed. Upon departure you can take your catch with you, or arrange to have it shipped to your door via Fed Ex.
Cook Your Catch
In addition to a full kitchen each house comes with a gas grill, and a crab cooker. Relax on the deck overlooking the water while cooking your catch on the grill.
