An island to call your own! This house on Big Gull Island near Sitka, Alaska wants for nothing. (Home info.)
Big Gull Island is a fifteen minute boat trip from the harbors in Sitka, in waters largely protected from inclement weather by adjacent islands. Sitka, a community of 9,000 situated on the outer shore of Baranof Island, has three grocery stores, two hospitals, a Coast Guard air station, commercial fishing and all the accompanying accommodations. Renowned for its natural beauty, cruise ships make day stops throughout the summer travel season in Sitka, and also provides hospitality to independent travelers coming to town by air or the state ferry system.
Sitka has a surprisingly temperate climate for its northern latitude. On average only 33 inches of snow falls each year over a 19 day period and only 10 days see a high below freezing making this an ideal climate for the lush rain forest that carpets Baranof Island.
Sport fishermen are attracted to the area for the opportunity to catch wild salmon and other desirable seafood. The large dock at Big Gull Island is minutes by boat from world-class fishing. Surrounding mountains on Baranof Island and Mt. Edgecumbe, a latent volcano on nearby Kruzof Island, provide extensive hiking trails for adventure-seekers and those who hope to see local wildlife like brown bear, Sitka-blacktail deer, and eagles. 11.58 acre Big Gull Island is ripe for creating private trails and scenic viewpoints, with vantage points looking out toward Mt. Edgecumbe or passing fishing boats.
Outside of the natural beauty and outdoor opportunities on and around Big Gull Island, Sitka offers cultural opportunities for connoisseurs of the Fine Arts: a summer music festival, home-grown concerts, visiting performers, and many other events.
Life on a private island attracts those who seek solitude and privacy with nature's bounty on all sides.
