- San Juan Island is the best area to actually see Orca whales in the wild easily during the summer months. Fall and Spring it is a birders paradise with many species passing through en route to their winter home or summer breeding grounds. Many birds reside here in the winter, most beautiful are the Trumpeter Swans and the Great Blue Heron, plus the largest population of Bald Eagles outside of Alaska, reside in the San Juan Islands. ...moreless

San Juan Get-A-Away
San Juan Get-A-Away
The lofts is a great "get-a-way" spot. It is an easy walk up from the ferry and close to town and the best restaurants. The apartment is spacious and nicely equipped. The outside balcony is a plus and a great spot for a glass of wine while watching activities below and the ferries coming and going. No need for a car; just about 50 yards away you can rent electric bikes or mopeds from Susy's mopeds. If going further afield just call Vintage Cab for a fun ride in a very well maintained 1950 Mercury.

Great Stay in Friday Harbor at The Lofts
Great Stay in Friday Harbor at The Lofts
The Lofts is a wonderfully appointed apartment centrally located in Friday Harbor. It is an easy walk to the ferry and to lots of shops, the museum, and many well reviewed restaurants (The Backdoor Kitchen, Coho, Market Deli etc...). The Lofts is immaculately decorated with special artist touches in every room. The balcony is a great place to have a meal and watch the happenings of Friday Harbor. The Lofts is directly across the street from the Saturday Farmers Market and next to a wine and cheese shop where you can purchase the best fresh produce and artisan cheeses around. The owner is very helpful with answering our questions and providing very helpful information about parking, keys, etc. My husband and I hope to return to San Juan Island and stay at the Lofts again!

Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor:
This is the first secure 2nd floor Loft type apartments built in Friday Harbor. They were designed to creatively utilize the unused open space of the upstairs of the Ace Hardware building. The original tenant of Unit D, was a world class faux artist and this Loft was her portfolio. Plus, this unit has a wonderful balcony for viewing the water, watching the activity of downtown and the farmers market.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This wonderful vacation unit located in the heart of the Historic seaport of Friday Harbor is within easy walking distance to everything, the ferry, the port and whale watch vessels, the airport and the Whale Museum. It is also within a 2 minute walk to many restaurants and shops. All are fully sprinklered.
