Steamboat Bay Fishing Club
320 Dock St, Ketchikan, AK 99901 (800) 350-3474 steamboatbay.com
The property offers 38 bedrooms in an assortment of luxury cabins, decked out tents and the lodge in what is tabbed from time to time as the most expensive resort in the US. (Rates come down considerably for groups, of course.)
All is inclusive here, from horseback rides (all levels accommodated), fly fishing, rafting, guided (and solo) hikes along seemingly endless miles of scenic trails, the saltwater pool, the gourmet meals (meatloaf is a must-have here, as is the venison), the wine list and the bowling and movies afterwards. A working ranch, it’s not unusual to round up an errant steer or two while hitting the trail on horseback.
Guests need only bring the right clothes and shoes. Everything else is provided
