With scenic views of the town and Thomas Basin from 135 feet above Creek Street, Cape Fox Lodge is cozy yet luxurious. A towering, log-framed lobby has Tlingit and Haida artwork and an interesting collection of museum-quality artifacts, and there's often a roaring fire. The spacious rooms are attractively decorated with traditional tribal colors and watercolors of Alaska birds. All have views of either Tongass Narrows or Deer Mountain. Numshee Jitters (that's "Crazy" Jitters
in Tlingit) is the lobby's coffee shop, and the busy Heen Kahidi Dining Room serves three meals a day, with seafood, pasta, chicken, and steaks highlighting the dinner menu. Be sure to reserve one of the window tables that overlook Ketchikan.
