Enjoy your stay in Sitka in this charming private loft above a local literary nonprofit. We're a only block away from grocery store & laundry and a short walk from the ocean, library, museums, shops & restaurants. A block north is access to an amazing trail network based around Sitka's Cross Trail. Comfortable, quiet and fully-furnished, it's a great home base for adventurers, travelers, nomads, and nerds! The apt features a full bed and a twin bed.
