About the property

Cabin, Studio + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Handcrafted timberframe guest cabin on beautiful Westcott Bay. Watch eagles, seals, and otters from your deck, or walk down to the beach to collect clams and oysters for dinner. All the amenities of Roche Harbor (shops, restaurants, swimming, tennis, and more) are only a 5 minute walk away.

At the end of a long and active day, take a sunset kayak journey out into the bay, and listen as the silence of the islands falls. Truly a place to appreciate the beauty of nature.

Additional 2700 ft house on property sleeps 11

Clean. We'll appointed. Comfortable for sure!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the serene setting, the wildlife, the kayaks. We had an amazing dinner at the nearby bar and grill in Roche Harbor, walking distance from the cottage. All in all we would highly recommend it!

Beautiful cabin on the island! Thanks so much for sharing it with us!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, cozy, well maintained and homey. Kitchen is well stocked. Beds are comfy. Row boat, kayaks, bikes, and rubber boots for the muddy beach are all wonderful additions! Small fridge is a bit of a pain as are all small fridges I've ever delt with, but it works pretty well as long as your stuff doesn't keep the freezer part partially open... Hope to be back some day!

A true taste of the Northwest Island life!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time celebrating our anniversary on Westcott Bay. The cottage is perfect for 2 people and we had many pleasant surprises. Starting with the deer that visited with us each day; the ability to gather our own clams for a delicious feast from the beach side; riding the bikes down beautiful roads around the bay; to walking (or biking) to Roche Harbor for the sunset tribute to the American flag while dining at the marina. Truly a great place to enjoy San Juan Island.

Quaint but a serious lack of privacy

  • 3 of 5

I'll start by saying that Kathy was very quick to response and very accommodating. The place itself is really nice and perfect for a couple...but it lacks serious privacy.

The good:

Very nice place with all the amenities we needed. They have the board game Sequence there, so make sure to try it out (it's a great game). The grill, patio, and propane fireplace was perfect at night. The bed was comfortable, shower was great, and the area was fantastic! We were able to walk into the "town" of Roche Harbor and to the distillery.

The bad:

This is essentially a mother in-law and the house is right next to it. Which wouldn't be an issue if I had some where other than the bathroom to get changed without fearing of being seen. The bedroom doesn't have proper curtains and people on the second floor of the house could look in. Also, there are no curtains/blinders in the living room and kitchen so you are very exposed. As the backyards looks right into the cottage, I found on more than one occasion that the people that were on the lawn could easily look over. It made getting changed a bit awkward.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay greatly, but the lack of privacy would hinder me from committing to staying here again.

Good for the soul!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the gorgeous guesthouse amid the peaceful surroundings. We loved the proximity to the harbor, made for a nice walk in the morning to Lime Kiln Cafe for coffee and homemade donuts (highly recommend!). The rental had everything we needed and more. The finishes - stunning! We hope to be back.
