Friday Harbor cottage description

I’m an adorable petite cottage fully furnished with laminate flooring, tile counter tops, a ¾ bath, deck on three sides, private parking and quiet surroundings 4.5 miles from Friday Harbor. A small well-mannered dog could be my friend, but you need to take your dog with you when you leave. My walk-in closet is off my one bedroom with a queen bed and I have ample storage cabinets as well as a stack washer-dryer. The kitchen is fully stocked with all necessary accoutrements for cooking and eating (food not included). Free WiFi is available. I will remain faithful for at least two days. My friends do no drugs or tobacco including marijuana.
The setting is quiet & rural with beautiful, safe walking and biking from my deck. A part-year stream runs through my property and there is a gas barbeque on my deck with outdoor chairs and a table.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1994

              About the owner: Gayle has operated Bountiful Herbs Farm & Nursery for over 20 years and is active at the San Juan Island Farmers' Market. Dennis is retired and is Gayle's back office worker; he also takes on multiple part-time jobs including camp store clerk at Lakedale Campground, tour bus driving all summer and others.

              Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor:
              It is quiet & away from the wind and cooler weather along the shoreline. The surroundings are more conducive to herb growing and uninterrupted walks on and about country lanes.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              When we bought the property it was a house in a bowl. Through the blessings of God it is now a place of beauty and serenity.
