Property description

Welcome to Madrona Cove. The Cottage is quintessential “island eclectic”. Originally an artists studio, the cottage has been converted into a wonderful vacation space, featuring wonderfully unique windows and a breathtaking view southerly into Griffin Bay. The cottage is surrounded by many beautiful Madrona trees.

The cottage overlooks Merrifield Cove and has a great view over a reef frequently occupied by seals. A large tree on the property is a favorite resting site for Bald Eagles . Area wildlife characters frequently include: river otters, raccoons, quail, fox, deer, and even a naughty kitty named Luigi. Sea birds are abundant, including: Heron, Oystercatchers, Kingfishers, Woodpeckers,Swallows, Cormorants, and Gulls.

There are steps down to the beach, a great spot to discover the tidal life of Griffin Bay and the Salish Sea. Spend the morning looking for crab, nudibranch, and starfish. Listen to the waves of the sea and watch pleasure boats and crabbing boats go by. The property also has many beautiful gardens to enjoy as well as several great spots to have a seat and look and listen, or just read your book and smell the sea.

The house is ¼ mile from the public golf course which also has tennis available. It is only a short 2 ½ mile drive from the town of Friday Harbor, a great town with shops, restaurants, and even a movie theater. Spend the day relaxing in a great town with old world charm and a maritime heritage.

Enjoy the best the Island has to offer and book Madrona Cove now for the vacation you have been hoping for on the one and only San Juan Island!
