Friday Harbor cottage description

Watch the sunset and hear the whales from this quiet cottage with water views. Walk to the edge of the pasture from the cottage to see the whales swim by in summer. Set in a pastoral setting on a six-acre horse ranch, there is a lovely perennial garden outside your door with a pick your own vegetable garden (in season). From the cottage you can walk to American Camp National Park.

We are walking distance to secluded Eagle Cove with a sandy beach great for sunbathing & wading. Walk to American Camp National Park for hiking opportunities and island history information. We are just a 10 minute drive to Friday Harbor.

Décor is a mix of world motifs acquired during our travels featuring oriental rugs, and European accessories. There is also a lovely gas fireplace for romantic evenings.

Wake up to a view of the garden from your bedroom with a comfortable queen size bed. The elegant deluxe bathroom has a claw foot tub and shower, Italian tiles and marble, heated floors and heated towel rack. Outside there is access to a hot tub, picnic table and chairs.
