ABOUT THE CABIN
This is a “do it yourself” cabin.
…..However, we will collect your food waste and garbage daily and make sure you have clean towels/washrags always, as well as a supply of sheets/blankets. The bedding will be changed once a week when you are out of the cabin if you are staying 7+ nights…if you wish it to be changed more frequently, there are supplies of extra bedding linens stocked in the cabin for your use.
We get our water from a nice well. It goes through two filters and then is treated with UV light. It is safe to drink and tastes delicious.

Keep in mind that our weather is usually in the 60’s, even in summer but it can on occasion get up to 80…that’s rare though. Layering with fleece is a good way to dress. It rains often here, all year, so bring some rain wear that will not leak.
We are 3 3/4 mi. from the ferry/float plane terminal. We are remote but close to excellent, world class fishing as well as hunting.
Hollis has no amenities…you will need to get your food and fuel on the other side of the island, in town, approx. 30 minutes away. I keep a small amount of sugar, flour, in the cabin for your use and enough coffee for a day or two until you get your groceries. If you need a little something, ask, I mostly likely have plenty to share.
Our Roads in to the Cabin
We have two roads in to our cabin. One runs 3/4 mi. along the beach to our place. It is under water at high tides over 15′ for anywhere from an hour to a couple hours depending on how high the tide is each day. This happens several times during each month, NOT every day. We provide a tide guide for your use and I mark the days and times to be aware of, if any. It is easy to work around them and fun to see the driveway underwater! Or fish swimming and jumping in the driveway!
The other road in is steep, about a 21% grade. You MUST HAVE a four wheel drive to go up. There is a switchback halfway up. It is quite easy to negotiate. I’m a nervous Nellie and I am fine with it. Please do no attempt to go up that road without four wheel drive, thinking you might make it. You won’t and it will only tear up the road.
Also, we ask that guests drive no more than 10mph on the beach road.
We recommend a four wheel drive vehicle for traveling Prince of Wales Island
