Introducing a Premiere, One of a Kind Property, located in Southeast Alaska
~ Salmon Falls Lodge ~
Imagine arriving through a large, private gate, down a lush, tree-lined drive and out from the canopy of trees finding yourself in the middle of a beautiful, spacious, waterfront estate, Salmon Falls Lodge, the largest Lodge in Southeast Alaska. Before you is a gorgeous, massive, rustic, yet elegant, lodge on a large piece of forested, waterfront property, where eagles & kingfishers perch on your deck railings and in your trees, swooping down after the abundant fish along your shore.
A beautiful, cascading waterfall showers down beside the lodge, competing with the panoramic views of ocean water and islands.
Colors and hues change as the sun treks across the sky until the setting sun lies down in a glowing show of vibrant color, yet the show is not over until you watch the blue hues of the night sky turn from light blue to cobalt and the encore is to see the stars in the night sky above.
Abundant wildlife including bear, deer, seals, sea lions, otters, whales, porpoise, eagles, ducks, geese, mink & ermine abound...
...and every year five species of pacific salmon come together making your 'back yard' the famed 'Salmon Capital of the World'.
Privacy, peaceful beauty, tranquility and the freshest, clean air. A property like no other, Salmon Falls Lodge is truly a one-of-a-kind piece of real estate.
The Lodge location is private yet accessible by road...or by boat or float plane right to your own large dock, or by helicopter to the landing pad near the waterfall.
The Main Lodge, constructed of logs is massive, built in the shape of an octagon, with a huge piece of the Alaska Pipeline as the center piece. The sweeping, waterfront view from within is beautiful. You can sit and have breakfast, lunch and dinner with views watching seals, eagles, whales, etc. Being on the water, the view (which you can see for miles) is always changing with the time of day, tides, & season. The lodge boasts a fine chef's kitchen and a generous dining room & mezzanine plus a beautiful, full-length bar made from yellow cedar.
Ultimately, this is fine, Alaskan living at its best, whether for a business, a large family and/or to entertain guests or clients.
This is one of the largest pieces of waterfront property in the Ketchikan area, and by far one of the most picturesque.
Salmon Falls Lodge is a 52 room fishing lodge that can accommodate up to 100 people, making it Southeast Alaska’s largest fishing lodge. Salmon Falls is located in a secluded, pristine, wilderness setting. The lodge is surrounded by magnificent scenery, taking in the surrounding islands with their protected bays and inlets. Salmon Falls offers far more than world class fishing for the avid sportsman, it is an ideal location for:
Fishing / Hunting Lodge
Naval or Coast Guard Military Base
Oceanic Research Headquarters
Cruise Ship Excursion Destination
Corporate Headquarters / Corporate Meetings, Retreats & Incentive Location
World Class Rehab Facility
Salmon Falls began operation in 1987 - Designed as a deluxe alternative to existing facilities in the area, Salmon Falls Lodge was built to fill a niche in the rapidly increasing market for quality sport fishing in Alaska.
Accessible by road from the City of Ketchikan, Alaska, with daily jet service from Seattle and the West Coast, Salmon Falls is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the growing awareness of Alaska as a travel destination. Combined with the operating efficiencies realized from the use of local public utilities, accessibility, market awareness and capacity projects a significant profit potential for the lodge.
During the past 25 operating years, the bulk of the facilities and equipment have been acquired to run a world class destination fishing lodge. It is a total turnkey operation at this point.
Along the southern tip of Alaska's Inside Passage, salmon schools migrate from the open Pacific Ocean into protected fishing waters.
This mass gathering of five species of Pacific Salmon is the reason that the area is recognized as the "Salmon Capital of the World".
This Lodge is located on Behm Canal, which is particularly noted for its strong runs of
Trophy Size King Salmon (Chinook)
Silver Salmon (Coho)
Pink Salmon (Humpback)
Red Salmon (Sockeye)
Halibut (frequently over 100 lbs. some weigh over 300 lbs)
Cod (numerous varieties)
The location is famous for its unsurpassed beauty, moderate climate, healthy fisheries and its ease of access.
