Totem Bight State Park is within walking distance from our B&B on a paved bike path. You can enjoy some great photo opportunities along the way. At the park you can enter the clan house or totem carving center and view the ocean front setting of totems, including Ketchikan’s tallest totem. This park also offers a great beach walking area with a view of Guard Island Lighthouse. Be sure and visit the book store and gift shop. Right next door is a private potlatch park with a totem carver, gift shop, antique cars and Russian Museum.

Image North Salon & Tanning is located here also and on the way back to the B&B Lodge you can stop off at the New Frontier Bar & Cafe.
