“You come on by, Sweetie. Your room is ready,” said Nicole Church, proprietress of the “Black Bear Inn.” Her inn is the only 5-star place on the water in Ketchikan. There are only six rooms, so it’s nice and cozy. Take a walk around the grounds—she and her husband Jim have worked hard to make it beautiful. There’s a covered outdoor hot tub/BBQ area, a lighted walkway down to the beach and a couple of decks to just hang out and watch the water.
Inside, Nicole has a collection of comfy rooms—all with spectacular water views. Nightly rates range from $150-$245 per room per night, based on when you arrive. The cost includes breakfast, wi-fi, parking and use of all the special touches Jim and Nicole have arranged: hot tub, full fridge/freezer, microwave…all that jazz.
We had coffee yesterday in her kitchen. We caught up on all-things-Ketchikan while I ate the last of the Danishes she had set out for guests. HAHA.
“Our pantry is your pantry,” she said, sweepeing her hand around to the well-stocked fridge.
Let Nicole plan out your Ketchikan activities (she knows all the right people). FIshing, flightseeing, hiking, exploring…the works. Check the website for more details: Black Bear Inn.
Jim and Nicole are long-time Ketchikan residents—just the type of friend you want to meet you when you arrive in “The Gateway City”. Call (907)225-4343.
