Places to stay in Whale Pass
Johnny's Place is a tiny log cabin nestled in the woods of Whale Pass, Alaska. Located just a short walk to the mouth of Neck Lake Outlet, where it empties into Whale Passage. This location is known as a great Coho salmon fishing destination. The log cabin provides a cozy retreat after a day of enjoying the beautiful outdoors. The ability to provide yourself with hot food, hot showers, clean clothes and comfortable beds, will greatly enhance your enjoyment of our wonderful island. Welcome!
Experience a truly Alaskan get-away. This is where you come to "unplug" from the outside world. Whale Pass boasts a total lack of cell phone coverage with Wi-Fi available 24/7 at the public library 3.5 miles away. The cabin is supplied by water that is collected in a tank and then filtered for safety. The water carries tannins which are harmless and give the water a colour similar to weak tea; this is common in SE Alaska when visiting outside cities. There is a trail directly across from the driveway that leads to the mouth of Neck Creek, where it empties into Whale Passage and provides fishing, as well as bird, bear and other wildlife viewing opportunities. We also have two, single person sea kayaks, with paddles & life jackets, to rent for an extra fee. Use them to explore the many lakes and coves in the area. There are many caves to explore on the north end of Prince of Wales Island, with the largest and easiest being El Capitan Cave. (Contact the US Forest Service for summer cave tour reservations.) The Prince of Wales Chamber of Commerce also has a website with helpful information for planning your trip. And please don't hesitate to ask us! We love to help our guests customize their trip to their interests.
Whale Pass has a full time population of almost 100. A small convenience store, about one mile away from the cabin, which offers basic supplies, snacks, fishing tackle and local art. The gas station is open in the morning and evening. There is a public library which provides a wonderful selection of books & DVD's, as well as guest computers and Wi-Fi. Whale Pass Bible Church offers Sunday School at 9:45 am & Service at 11 am. The rustic building has been featured on the cover of the SE Alaska phone book and also served as the inspiration of one of Thomas Kinkade's paintings. Feel free to stop in and take photos or join in the service. The harbor and boat launch is located 3.5 miles from the cabin and provides boat access to the bay. If you are interested in a fishing charter, I can give you some names of locals that are licensed for that service.
  • This was the perfect spot to completely disconnect from work stress. The cabin has everything we needed for a comfortable vacation. Tyra is very friendly and helpful. She even brought us some delicious homemade bread. Whale Pass is a great place to stay and explore the remote and less crowded parts of the island. We made use of the local library, gas station and convenience store. All very helpful and really good people.

  • We enjoyed our three nights in this lovely log cabin. It had everything we needed. We were on a 10-day tour of POW to see and hike the island (no fishing). The cabin/deck and location were great.

  • Cabin is super cute and allows you to experience a less traveled part of Prince of Wales Island and Alaska. Fishing was more challenging than we expected. We needed to either rent a boat or have waders even though the silvers were running. We still had a great time but we like to chill and play games.

    Sandy2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great cabin to stay in! You can explore for days, unplug from busy life, and enjoy the days spent in quiet and remote part of Alaska. Highly recommend and will definitely stay at Jonny’s cabin again!

    Dawn2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic location that allows the access to the North of the island. We toured the area quite a bit, and always had the cabin to return to for comfort and amenities.

    Bryan2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Johny's cabin was everything we hoped for and more! The cabin was very clean and was the perfect size for the two of us. We could be fishing for Coho Salmon after a one minute walk down the hill. Mike and Tyra were awesome and provided great information on activities to do on the island. We loved our stay in Whale Pass and would love to come back!

  • Great place and excellent folks to deal with. Highly recommended b n b.

    Wayne2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • Three of us stayed here for a fishing trip to Whale Pass and it was perfect. Mike and Tyra were great hosts and the place was set up nicely. Very comfortable and great views from the deck. The cooking supplies that were provided allowed us to cook the fish we caught right there. Great place to stay.

    Brad And Heather2018-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is a gem. Right on the bay at Whales Pass you are within walking distance to the fish hatchery creek which has amazing fishing when the silver salmon are in. Cabin is cozy and clean. Had a great washer and dryer and a ton of things to use for cooking, from pots and pans to spices, sugar, and flour. Even came with a row boat and a crab pot to use, which allowed us to have crab every night for dinner. The fish cleaning station was perfect. Truly a great place to stay.

    Yeni Erenköy, Cyprus

    This cozy little cabin has modern amenities and is nestled amongst the trees on the coast of Coffman Cove, Alaska. The cabin offers waterfront views of the Clarence Straits, whale watching, orcas, deer and Bald Eagles. The summer days are long and beautiful. It might take you a couple nights to get used to the peacefulness of Alaska. Sometimes the whales or Bald Eagles will wake you as they pass by. Wifi access, dishwasher, washer, dryer, microwave and coffee maker are all included.
    Your nearest neighbor is about 1/4 mile from the cabin. You are more likely to see more whales, Bald Eagles and deer than humans while at the cabin. If you enjoy nature, whale watching, hiking, kayaking, fishing, trail running or hunting, you have come to the right place!
    This is not your normal everyday community. Coffman Cove has a summertime population of under 200 people and most are super friendly. The cabins location is about 2 miles outside of town and offers great views and comfort.

    Coffman Cove, AK, United States

    Experience the wild wonders of Alaska from this waterfront Coffman Cove vacation rental studio. True to its name, the well-appointed 'A Room with a View' has spectacular views of Clarence Strait and offers 1 bath and space for 3 guests. Walk down to the water for beachcombing, or go hunting, fishing, and boating throughout the picturesque landscape of Prince of Wales Island.
    Studio: Queen Bed | Additional Sleeping: Pullout Bed Nestled on the spectacular shores of Inside Passage, this studio offers you a cozy place to access the rugged beauty of Prince of Wales Island. Vaulted ceilings and large windows highlight the hardwood floors and charming interior space that'll greet you every day as you soak in the beautiful ocean view. Begin each morning with a cup of coffee on the deck while you watch whales and porpoises swim by. You might be able to catch a glimpse of the eagles that live in a nest on the property! Head inside to the well-equipped kitchenette where you'll find everything you need to prepare a delicious breakfast feast. Eat at the wooden dining table beside the bay window overlooking the water before kayaking the coast. Return from your day exploring the beautiful island to take it easy on the comfortable couch. Curl up with a good book or watch a movie on the flat-screen satellite TV. In the evening, fire up the charcoal grill and have a backyard barbecue overlooking the water. As your eyes begin to grow heavy, retreat to the plush queen bed, where you'll rest easy in the peaceful solitude surrounding you on Prince of Wales Island. ** Please note that the homeowner lives on site, in a completely separate unit, and may be present during your stay **
    Escape the bustle of everyday life and discover the natural beauty of Coffman Cove. Fishermen will love the plentiful fishing opportunities in the ocean, inland lakes, and streams. Hunt the renowned Sitka black-tailed deer along the rugged alpine slopes across the island. Blackbear and waterfowl are also popular for hunting on Prince of Wales Island, where you can also book a guided hunt. Traverse nearly 1,000 miles of coastline dotted with protected coves and saltwater straits via kayak. Head inland for a hike through one of the protected wilderness areas to explore the numerous karst formations, waterfalls, alpine streams and perhaps encounter the area wildlife. Follow one of the canoe routes for access to wilder parts of the island. Soak in the local history and Klawock Totem Park where 21 totems tell the rich history of the Tlingit people. Be sure to visit the Chief Son-I-Hat's Whale House and Totems Historic District for an immersive island experience.
  • We ended up spending an extra night here. The view was fantastic! The studio had everything we needed. It was the third place we stayed during our 10-day tour of POW. Coffman Cove is a nice little town with lots of friendly and helpful people and that made it even better.

    Sandy2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great views from the deck. cozy place. has everything you need for a nice vacation. It was quiet and could see wildlife from the deck. Beautiful sunsets. We would like to return and would like to stay in the same place!

    My place is close to family-friendly activities, nightlife, and the city center. You’ll love my place because of the coziness, the high ceilings, the location, the people, and the views. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers. We have coffee pot, dishes, microwave and a new gas BBQ for you to use.
  • Great place to stay!

    Perry2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Good place to stay for dedicated fishermen

    Matt2018-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin is in a great location. We saw deer in our driveway most days. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed for our family of 5. We look forward to staying in Coffman Cove again soon!

    Alison2018-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Cute cabin in Coffman Cove! We used it as a home base while touring around the island and it did us well! Cozy space that meet our needs.

    Lee2018-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Trash is taken out for you on Tuesday, the manager of this property works part time at the rigging shack if you need to talk to her. This little property has all you need to have a great stay😉

    Heather2017-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • This place is great! Stayed four nights while exploring Prince of Wales Island; this cabin was warm and dry with enough space for two adults and two kids- with infinite hot water. Handmade furnishings and cabin details provide an authentic Alaskan stay. I can't recommend this place enough.

    Coffman Cove, AK, United States

    Located approximately one mile from Coffman Cove you will find Kevin's Cabin, a cozy one bedroom cabin with all amenities. Sleeps three comfortably, bunk bed style, with a full on bottom, twin on top. We have a canoe for your use (free). There is a large shop with a big freezer for your catch as well as places to hang a deer for our hunters. There is fish packing available down by the dock as well. We have 2 cabins --the other is larger than this one next door with gas BBQ.
    So many ways to get to Coffman Cove. Fly into Ketchikan and you can pre-book a flight directly from the airport to Craig, Klawock or Hollis. In any of these locations you can rent a car and drive to Coffman. You can also charter a float plane flight to Coffman or see if you can be added into the milk run. You can rent a car in Ketchikan and come via ferry to Hollis and drive onto the island. I suggest you pick up your groceries in Ketchikan or Craig or Klawock before arriving at Coffman Cove. We have the " Riggin' Shack" where you can buy groceries but many more to choose from and cheaper drinks and beer in Craig or Klawock. We highly suggest you rent a car as you will definitely need it to get around. There is also a local bar and place to buy alcohol and ice and fuel.
  • Great place to stay in coffman

    Jesse2018-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place fit 3 fishermen and gear. It was warm, clean, and close to town. Nice outdoor fire pit. Great time! I would stay here again.

    Aj2018-04-29T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful little cabin in the woods! Perfect for two people. It's easy to feel at home here. The people of Coffman Cove are friendly and helpful. It's close to excellent salt water fishing in the straight, or fresh water fishing in many of the streams and lakes on the island. We were there at the end of July and caught halibut and silvers. We saw whales, bears, bald eagles, and lots of deer. Jesse is fast to communicate to answer any questions. We had a wonderful time and look forward to being able visit again.

    Darlene and Glenn2017-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great cozy cabin with all the amenities needed for a long stay. It was great being able to cook meals and a there was a good selection of DVDs for days we stayed in. Overall we had a great time and I'd stay here again.
