  • Year Purchased: 2008

Betsey purchased the property from the city of Ketchikan.  Marjorie Voss willed her lifelong home to the library.  The Voss family lived in the home starting in 1921, the year Marjorie was born. The house had a least five different additions and when the renovation was going on Betsey discovered that the entire roofline had to be replaced as well as major structural parts.  So it was three years in the making!  There is a lot of attention to detail.

Betsey, her son Jared and his partner KT, own and run Southeast Exposure Outdoor Adventure Center, a company offering kayaking tours, a ropes &  zipline course, zodiac tours and bike rental.  Their business has been family owned and operated since 1986. Betsey’s hobbies include paddling, biking, baking, reading and visiting with friends and neighbors.

Why the Owner Chose Downtown Ketchikan

Betsey saw the possibilities and practicalities of the property and the need for locals to start taking pride in the beautiful downtown setting.

The Unique Benefits of this Rental

There are three bedrooms which can accomodate three to five people.  It is right downtown and you can walk.
