Welcome to Grokbuck House

Heritage and history collide at Grokbuck House.

Situated in the sheltering overhang of glacial rock formations protecting from the billowing coastal winds, we offer stunning views of the North Pacific year round. Purpose built, the main house and outbuildings are set atop a geothermal vent which provides heat and energy to the house and research facilities.
