Juniper Lane Guest House is a hip and unique Guest House nestled on the edge of Friday Harbor overlooking Beaverton Valley. It has a rural feel yet is still close to town. Juniper Lane is a custom-crafted bold mosaic of exotic woods, tile, art, and color. The property boasts a rural feel, yet is just on the edge of town. We take great pride in having excellent quality beds all purchased since 2015, an impeccably clean rental upon your arrival, and really nice bedding that is constantly rotated. We have chilled martini glasses, wine glasses, and Oyster shuckers waiting for you to experience a true Northwest and San Juan delight! There really is magic in the details of this property. Many architects and wood lovers alike have enjoyed the craftsmanship and rare woods used in the interior finish of the house. The property has an additional cabin rental if your group expands. The owners live on site in an adjacent house and are available should you need anything but give you space to enjoy the property as your own.
Great for groups! 5 queen beds, 4 twins, and 2 pull out sofas 1.3 miles to ferry

About Juniper Maas Mercer
Juniper was born and raised on San Juan Island and has family that dates back 5 generations. Her great grand parents were The Settle's family that were the lighthouse keepers at lime kiln point state park. Her Grandmother was raised in the park and had many amazing stories of life growing up on San Juan. Her husband Sean moved here as a child in the early 70's. He left after high school and eventually moved back for a rural lifestyle after years of the NYC rat race! Sean's father is South African and spent his career as a captain at sea, logging more hours of his life on the water than land (so far anyway). His mother resides on San Juan in a little house by the sea, tending her gardens, and being a Nana extraordinaire. Sean is a designer and builder, passionate soul surfer, artist, husband, and loving father to our 3 1/2 son, Salvador. Juniper has worked in various forms of the tourism industry since she was 11 years old. From selling ice on the docks at for .25 cents mark up per bag, bussing tables at restaurants, dispatching taxis, waitressing, port docks, etc.! Juniper spent her 20's working for 9 or 10 months a year and traveling the world for the remaining months until building and opening the guest house in 2004. Her parents are on the island and reside in the home they built in the 80's. Her Dad has the Island's Sawmill that specializes in windfall, beachcomb, and selective harvest timber, and her step-mother was an incredible seamstress for many years, she made all of the curtains in the guest house (there are a lot)!

Wonderful charming place close from downtown Friday Harbor
We were 7 adults and 8 kids for a great week end in May. We came for the half-marathon and we had a great time staying here. Rooms are all different and nicely decorated. The patio outside was the perfect place for us to relax after the race!
