About the owner: We are Alaskans with roots in Friday Harbor. Victor is a life long Alaskan commercial fisherman who is now a merchant mariner, and he may be one of the crew on your ferry to the island. Phebe’s ties to the island go way back, even beyond childhood memories of sunburned backs from exploring tide pools, hayfields, salmon bakes and the joy of arriving each summer from Alaska on the ferry. The story continues, as we hope that our guests (and our grandchildren!) are creating memories just like that during their visit to the island. Come see us!
Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor: When we bought the property we saw the cottage as a place for our family and friends to stay when they came to visit us. We've found we can offer it as a vacation rental as well, and hope to make our visitors to the cottage feel at home.
