We cater to young and older couples, cycling enthusiasts (secure storage is available), hikers, paddlers, whale watchers, all those who love the outdoors and of course anyone who enjoys a great evening out at a fine dining establishment.

Quiet and respectful children are always welcome.

So come. discover and enjoy your suite in a home proud of its past, yet considerate of modern amenities and conveniences.

Quick Note About Etta Egeland’s Home

Historian Etta Egeland’s home is a restored 1895 Prairie Victorian San Juan Island Home located in the New York Time’s recommended Number 2 destination in the world to visit!

The home’s interior is brimming with traditional Victorian charm and original building details such as the banister and staircase, original fir flooring and 1895 exterior patterned shingles.

The Details:

• Etta’s Place is a Boutique Hotel style accommodation with only 2 available suites; each with separate entrances accessed through a main hallway.

• Etta’s Place is suitable for couples or a couple with a baby or up to two children under 8.

Note: If you have a larger family and need to occupy both suites, I do have a discounted rate for combining both units. Please do understand, though, there is no common kitchen or living room for larger groups to gather.

• Etta’s Place is conveniently located in downtown Friday Harbor; only 4 blocks from the San Juan Island ferry landing so it is cost effective to leave your car at the Ferry Landing in Anacortes, then just walk on to save the higher ferry rates and long waits during the summer!

• The town’s historic restaurants and shops are all within a short walking distance of Etta’s Place. Several modes of transportation are easily available to get around on this 10 mile wide by 22 mile long island.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I am Carol Anderson, owner of Etta's Place, a Washington State native and have lived in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island for over 18 years. I enjoy being active in community activities and love all the natural places San Juan has to explore. Being close to nature is very important to me.

Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor:
I bought Etta Egeland's home in 2006 after she passed away at the age of 105. Etta Egeland was a very special woman on San Juan Island; I met her when I first moved to San Juan Island. Her home was always open to travelers or anyone who needed a place to stay overnight. She was the consummate historian, active in preserving the town's history and the founder of the San Juan Historic Society and Museum which is still very active today. This historic society is responsible for documenting all the town's historic houses in the Historic Preservation Manual, a document which guided me in the restoration this lovely home. Etta's Place Suites is a tribute to both Etta Egeland's passion for history and her enduring kindness towards travelers.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Enjoy your own unique private living space with all the amenities you need to be comfortable. The unit has complete kitchen with dishes, utensils, and small appliances. The bath has a large shower, sorry no bathtub. Television has a maximum channel list plus HBO. Wi-Fi, is available. The unit has a separate entrance. Air conditioning is available, although usually only needed during the month of August.
