                  Car: Recommended

                  Guemes Island, less well-known than its San Juan neighbors, is an unspoiled gem where you can step back in time and experience island wilderness. Eagles dive for fish, herons stand watch on pilings, and deer families browse blackberries. Motorists are few and the locals always give you a wave as if to say 'Isn't this great!' In between ferries, bicyclists are plenty, and riding is a joy. Guemes Mountain, a great destination by car or bike, provides a 360 degree panorama of the San Juan Islands and is a favorite hike for a lunch reverie or a breathtaking sunset .

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.' Henry David Thoreau
