Alaska's Steamboat Bay Fishing Club Expands Accommodations

the residence at sbfc

For the 2015 summer season, the Steamboat Bay Fishing Club (SBFC) in Southeast Alaska is adding a new accommodation offering: the Residence at SBFC.

Located near Ketchikan, a 90-minute flight from Seattle, the new property will join The Lodge at Steamboat Bay, adding space for an additional eight guests and increasing the group guest count from 16 to 24.

The 2015 season, which runs from mid-June to mid-August, also brings to the Club a new fishing fleet of custom-built 27’ heated cabin cruisers, each equipped with a livewell and dual outboard engines. The new fleet provides guests with more deck space, an onboard head and satellite radio.

The Residence at Steamboat Bay is adjacent to the original Lodge. Like the Lodge, the Residence has Native American artwork and artisan hand-crafted construction using island timbers, local stones and antique materials reclaimed from the island’s original seafood cannery. The new Residence also has a transparent floor, showcasing views of the salmon stream that runs beneath the house, residential-style Ocean-front and Forest-view accommodations with en-suite bathrooms, a Great Room with a large wood burning fireplace, and its own hot tub on the Residence’s deck overlooking the bay.

Guests at The Residence will enjoy complete access to the services and amenities at the nearby Lodge, including a made-to-order cocktail reception at the hosted open bar, made-to-order Alaskan cuisine, on-site therapeutic massage, bay kayaks, a sauna styled after a traditional Slavic banya, and more. Opened in 2013, Steamboat Bay Fishing Club hosts novice and experienced anglers in salt-water Alaskan sport fishing. This location is near fishing spots for wild Alaska King Salmon (Chinook), Silver Salmon (Coho), Halibut, Lingcod, Yelloweye Rockfish and more than 20 other species.

To ensure an exclusive experience for guests, Steamboat Bay Fishing Club will reserve booking The Residence for travelers that bring up to eight guests in addition to accommodating sixteen at The Lodge.
