We are located at the backside of Mitchell Bay facing West for Beautiful sunsets on the private deck. A short walk down a path leads to the bank of Mitchell Bay- great for clamming or picnicking. Enjoy a nap in the hammock by the fire pit up by the house. Nature galore with bald eagles in the surrounding trees, deer wandering through on a daily basis and lots of bird life. We are close to English Camp, Mount Young, 350 acres of open space trails on Mitchell Hill. Roche Harbor is a 5 minute drive with a Spa, shops, artisan booths, 3 restaurants and a grocery store. The Roche Harbor Marina has kayak rentals, and bike/moped rentals with Suzie's Mopeds. An Alpaca farm and country store is also down the street. Friday Harbor is a 15 minute drive away. The closest Public Beaches with 'sand' are Jackson's Beach, and at American Camp (the biggest). Watch whales from the shore at the County Park- great for picnicking at sunset too! Most of our shoreline is rocky (we call our island the ROCK), so there are not many private sandy beaches. Enjoy the best of the Pacific Northwest here!
