Across Thorne Bay from the same-named logging town, quiet McFarland's resort consists of a floating main structure just offshore and four beachfront log cabins where guests spend the night. The cabins sleep up to six people and include a loft, a woodstove, a full kitchen, and a private bath. A 200-foot walkway leads over the water to the main structure, which was built in Ketchikan and floated by raft to its present location in 1981. Now a gathering place for guests and
visitors, it also contains the Baskets & Bullets Store, which carries fishing gear, bait, sporting goods, and some snacks. Owner Jeannie McFarland teaches basketry workshops and sells her pine-needle raffia baskets here. She and her husband, Jim, can help you book a charter fishing trip. If you'd rather head out on your own, you can rent a skiff and fishing gear. The property is accessible by floatplane and private boat, or you can drive here from the ferry terminal.
