This is a lodge consisting of 5 rooms on the top floor of a building with a native gift shop and restaurant on the ground floor. There are 3 rooms with large balconies facing the back overlooking the ocean. We stayed in room #2. The room was large and spacious with great views of the ocean, government dock and mountains, even viewable from the 2 queen size beds. The room was spotless and had a well equipped little kitchenette.
Our first evening we sat on the balcony and watched seaplanes land and take off and even saw a Bald eagle, flying by, with a fish dangling from it's talons. The staff were kind and helpful.
The hotel was right in town and we could walk to all shops and activities.
