About Us


"Home Away from Home was started in 1999. I wanted guests to come to Sitka and have a place to stay that was like home.

I tried to make each unit have its own style. I didn't want a hodgepodge of furniture and bedding; I wanted clean and comfortable units.

I wanted it so that after a long day you could watch a movie, make popcorn and in the morning make your coffee and sit out on the deck.
All the units are set up so that all you need is your tooth brush and clothes.

On my first unit, my mom, who was 80, helped knock out walls, painted and cleaned so each unit was put together with lots of care and with a special touch.

Many people that come and stay come back year after year and ask for the same unit.

I hope when you stay with us you feel like this is your HOME AWAY FROM HOME."
