Why Kristy & Charles Herrick chose Friday Harbor
Wonderful seclusion just an hour's ferry ride from Anacortes. San Juan is quaint and a bit yesteryear. Friday Harbor is a small town with just about everything you need except for franchise stores. San Juan gets about a third of the rainy days of Seattle. The main road is only a mile away and it's a calm rural road which is great for running, walking or bike riding. Turning right just before the winery and heading down a tree arched road we fell in love with our 6 acres of paradise. It is perhaps the finest piece of property on the Island.
What makes this House unique
Seclusion. Fishing, crabbing, and tide pool viewing. Unparalleled bird and wildlife viewing. Waterfront cookouts. Water, wonderful view of other islands and Mt. Baker.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Beautiful and perfect location!
We really enjoyed our weekend with our two kids. Lovely wildlife watching and perfect distance for quick trips to Friday Harbor.

Great place. One note, if you plan to make coffee, bring bottled water. Tap water is fine for everything else. Saw deer and foxes driving in and seals along the shoreline.
A wonderful peaceful experience
A great vacation home. Fully equipped with everything you may need. Beautiful views peaceful surroundings.
The view from this house is amazing. The house itself is super cozy and quiet. A great place to get away from the big city. I would definitely stay here again.
