Will my cell phone work?
Most cell phone carriers will work during your stay. ATT is the preferred provider in Sitka. If you have Verizon you will have cell service as well. We provide Satellite TV during your stay, along with DVD options. We do not have internet, so if you will be using more cell data than usual, please upgrade your plan before arrival if needed.
How can I ensure a seamless check-in?
We recommend getting all of your food, beverages, before checking in to the lighthouse. Guests most enjoy arriving between 12-2 pm into Sitka the day of check-in. After arriving guests have lunch, take in the sights, get groceries, and then head out to the lighthouse. This pace allows for more enjoyment upon your arrival. Please leave PETS at home.
We have a list of preferred providers located HERE.
