The Octagon at Port Protection

1 site · LodgingPort Protection, AK
After the first octagon burned in a mighty blaze, the village of Port Protection rallied to rebuild what was lost. What was built, was a mighty 8 sided dwelling fit for a king of the muskeg!!! Still in the family, the octagon is set betwixt the beautiful and mysterious Tongass National Forest and the sea. Just steps away is Keleske's 'woodin' wheel cove, an idyllic sandy pebbly sunset beach where you can launch a kayak, beach comb for ancient native american artifacts, or just lounge around with a beer in one hand or a joint in the other. Port Protection has always been cannabis friendly, and as of 2015, it was officially written into the village charter! Come and experience a place that even National Geographic couldn't pass up. Or you could just sit at home and watch the show ... its up to you!Learn more about this land:The Octagon is a rustic three-bedroom cabin with a full bath and kitchen set just steps from a beautiful, sandy sunset beach in Port Protection, Alaska. It's perfect for a family or a large group of campers. The cabin comfortably sleeps 4, but I will accept up to 8. To get a better idea of the area, check out the NatGeo show, Port Protection!
