A good friend has started a B&B in Kodiak that looks like a really cool thing. He has two rooms which sleep two each and over 1,000 square feet downstairs to use jointly. Included is a quality fish and game cleaning station, freezers, and so on. It is in the Bells Flats area just outside town, right near the Russian River (not to be confused with the river by the same name on the Kenai) and other creeks are close for salmon, dolly varden, and rainbow/steelhead fishing.

Cost is $100 per room (2 people) and includes breakfast.

I suspect it will fill quickly because it is not big and that is well below the area average. The amenities designed for fishermen are exceptional, too. He intends to work it for waterfowl hunters also... and he is a duck killing fool!

I will post some photos when I get them.

John Hohl is the owner and a long-time fishing guide. He will be away from the place running float trips in Bristol Bay through the summer.

that is a good price for sure, a little ways into town, but of course, Kodiak is very little town. It used to ruin my day if I had to wait for more than 3 cars at the stop sign on Rezanoff on the way to work. and I flat out cried when they fixed the one stoplight after 4 or 5 years of it just blinking yellow (PS, Art do you know if they closed the Food store down near the harbormaster office? thought I heard a rumor

Man, that place STANK,,,,, wink

Yeah, the AC store closed several years ago. No one misses it, so far as I know!

If I was looking to go kill silvers for a week in the fall I would be looking for a room and that would be a mighty fine choice...

sounds like the Buskin was a bust for silvers , hope it gets better. even the few years I got to fish it, it was kind of up/down on the runs for silvers. I learned that when there was a tremendous enhanced pink run, it caused havoc with the later silvers

Last year was the worst on record in Kodiak. Previous low was 12 million fish harvested... last year did not reach 6.

Those monster silvers in the Buskin are pretty cool though!

They intend to do a little advertising soon and I suspect things will fill pretty fast for them...

One of Cameraland DOug's first trips included an incredible silver run in the Buskin where the limit was raised to 5 and we hammered them for days with those great huge submarines. It was very memorable...

That's a great deal. That's one of the few places in Alaska that my wife and I haven't been to but one that's high on our list of want to see. I'd be all over it be my hands are full this year on POW.

I paid a lot more than that for some rat hole medicaid hotel in Kodiak 5 years ago. Called around and couldn't find a b&b open.

I spent a lot of time romping around in the Bells Flats area when I was stationed there. I love the area and need to get back at some point.

That sounds like a cool place to layover between flights in and out of Kodiak. Thanks for the info Art.


That's ok, I'll ass shoot a dink.

John is setting it up to help folks process their own fish and has large freezers to make it easier... I missed that point in the first post. While I use Island Seafood quite a lot, processing costs are high and the guys looking to pinch pennies without compromising quality will likely approve...
