Ray and Kathy met in 1998 and both were building beachfront homes at the time. We married in 1999 and Ray's house was finished first so we decided to do a vacation rental with the Hidden Cove home. It has been a very rewarding experience for us as we have met so many wonderful people. Check out the sunset at Hidden Cove!!
Kathy purchased this House in 1993
Why Kathy chose Ketchikan
We feel this is the nicest most private beachfront location on our island. We feel extremely lucky to own it and to share the beauty with so many families and groups. We hope to see you soon at Hidden Cove. Book early as we have been (the last few years) almost fully booked for the next Peak season as early as September.
What makes this House unique
To have this remoteness and be conveniently located is truly amazing!
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
This property is deserving of more than 5 stars! The communication with the owners is excellent during the entire reservation process and upon arrival there is nothing but great experiences! The house is beautiful, views out every window, accommodations to satisfy every guest, basic food items already stocked ,with a wonderful market just a turn out of the driveway. We spent endless hours outside on the swing watching orcas in the cove, humpbacks, sea otter and eagles! Also the cruise ships sailed in, as well as fishing boats.Late night bonfires and mostly cooked/ grilled as we wanted to spend as much time at the house as possible.
We used Oasis Charters with Chris as our guide both times, Alaska car rental gave us an excellent weekly rate and great service!
We rate this property very highly and look forward to another adventure back to Ketchikan !
This was our second time staying at Hidden Cove. The property has the best views on the island!!! The house is very will stocked and there wasn't anything we were lacking. Kathy and Ray were very accommodating!!!
We are already looking forward to our return trip to Hidden Cove!!!
Clean, beautiful hidden gem!
The best home away from home I’ve ever experienced. Very professional host. I don’t even want anyone to know about this amazing house! I absolutely recommend this if you have a family or just want to be away from the downtown area. Most beautiful place I’ve ever stayed!
You were very brave to book in the winter season and I'm so glad it worked out so well for you.
Thank you for staying at Hidden Cove and we look forward to your next visit!
Best views in Ketchikan. This home has everything...views, beach with starfish/shells/sea glass, fishing, fire pit, stocked kitchen and the list goes on and on...
A wonderful experience not to be missed!
We appreciate your kind words and hope to see you back at Hidden Cove soon! Ray and Kathy
Stunning performance by our hosts, Kathy and Ray.
The entire experience was bucket-list level. The island itself was delightful. This beautiful house on the water was superbly maintained, clean, and comfortable. Wildlife and forest all around. Kathy and Ray go out of their way to make your vacation a real treat. They are even thoughtful enough to have breakfast food waiting in the frig and bubble bath to relax you. Hats off to our hosts!
It was wonderful to have met you and we're happy you had a good visit. Please know we appreciate you for being thoughtful guests and we hope to see you back at Hidden Cove. Ray and Kathy
Amazing Vacation Home
This is the second time staying at this amazing home. I can use the word home freely because when you walk in the first thing you can tell is that a lot of love and attention was given to this vacation rental to make it feel just like home. Ray and Kathy have thought of everything, from the well stocked kitchen and bathrooms to the incredibly comfortable beds. When we arrived they had left a basket of food to welcome us and the refrigerator had eggs, milk, orange juice and fresh condiments. We have stayed at many VRBO properties and no one has anyone supplied us with so many goodies!
The outside is filled with wildlife. This included bald eagles, jumping salmon and whales! The hiking in the area is absolutely beautiful! Our two boys, ages ten and thirteen couldn't have been happier! It was so refreshing to watch them skip rocks, search for sea critters or just relax and take in the scenery! Computer games were forgotten and they just played outside.
If you have the opportunity to stay at this home you will have no regrets. We wish we could have stayed for a month. Hidden Cove Beach House is even better in person and it's hard to mention everything this property has to offer. Thank you Ray and Kathy for making this vacation home a spot that we can return to over the years and for the memories that will last our family a lifetime!
Thanks so much for your generous feedback.
We're glad it felt like home to you and it would be wonderful to see your family at Hidden Cove again.
Kathy and Ray
The Hidden Cove Beach House is a very short walk(across the street!) from a large convenience store (beer,wine and spirits) fishing license, gas station etc. We are located on the city bus route. Bus leaves at 10 minutes past the hour and cost is $2.00. Both marinas(rent boats, kayaks,fishing charters,fishing gear,and tours) are just three miles from Hidden Cove. Fantastic hiking trails are minutes away. Downtown Ketchikan is a fifteen minute drive. The best part of Hidden Cove is it is so close to everything but yet it feels as if you are on your own island!
