NSA Marble Is, Edna Bay, Alaska 99921
This partially completed 3BR & 2 BA cabin has a detached work shop/Generator Room and provides the ideal starting point for your wilderness home. This is living off the grid as it was meant to be. There is a spring fed water source that provides fresh water and adequate water pressure for a 2nd floor bathroom. Perhaps the best features of this property are two galvanized pile attached to a dockstructure in the protected cove. The dock needs new floatation. The piling/dock provides safe moorage year around from all weather conditions and all directions. The cove has a sandy beach with a enough grade to run a sewer outfall into Tokeen Bay.
The cabin is in need of repairs, but the roof is tight and there are no signs of water penetration into the cabin or the detached work shop. The front deck has been damaged from a tree fall and needs to be removed. The post and beam foundation looks secure and is easy to access.
Nearest community is 10 miles away by boat in Edna Bay or 40 miles South to Craig, Alaska. Marble Is. is 80 air miles from Ketchikan and is accessible by boat or float plane only. Marble Is is situated on the Southern terminus of the El Capitian Passage and is a 7 hour boat ride from Ketchikan at 20 MPH or a 20 minute skiff ride through Tenass Pass to the road system on POW.
If your dream is to live off the grid in a remote part of the Alaska Wilderness don’t miss this opportunity. Be prepared to be self sufficient. Because of the sandy Beach and the all weather cove this is without a doubt one of the best locations on Marble Island.
