About the owner: Crest View was built by me and my husband, Sammy Long in 2006. We live on the west side of San Juan Island where we look across Haro Strait to Vancouver Island. Sammy is a sculptor specializing in bronze busts and figures. I specialize in making furniture I design and wood carving. We have our Spirit Bear studio here on the island. I do volunteer work for the UW Friday Harbor Marine Labs and Sammy does community service.
Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor: The San Juan Islands are one of the most beautiful locations in this world. We are within 90 miles of Seattle, Victoria BC and Vancouver BC - three stunning cities. The climate is mild, the wild life is abundant, the scenery is too beautiful to believe, the orcas are astounding - it is heaven. Friday Harbor is a charming town with good stores, art galleries, excellent restaurants, high quality community theater, and an excellent rural hospital.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Crest View is a new property that is immaculate with mostly new furniture and all new linens. Its kitchen is fully equipped. The property has solitude/woods/water view plus it is close to both Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor Resort. Our private beach (for limited number of homes in area) lets you avoid kayak launch fees.Mona, the local camel, is on a farm within 1 mile of Crest View!
