City of Angoon Sales and Bed Taxes

Please note that the City of Angoon notified the lodge on January 3, 2017 of the Sales and Bed Taxes that were voted in as of September 28, 2016.  Reservations will now have a breakdown of room charges, transportation to/from Juneau, and all applicable taxes.  We have done our best to accommodate this change for the City while maintaining our published prices for 2017 and 2018. In our efforts to provide the best customer service while maintaining our obligations of the cost of doing business, there is a small fluctuation in the 2018 rates.  If you have made a reservation before our lodge was Certified by the City of Angoon to collect the Sales Tax and Bed Tax, you will not be charged a sales or bed tax, you will pay the rate that you were quoted at the time of confirming your reservation. Please feel free to call our business line if you have any questions.  Thank you! 907-723-3901
