Property description

Sunny Knoll is a great location, a ten minute drive to both Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor. Escape the crowds and enter your own world, up a winding private drive through old growth forest, you pop out above it all in a tranquil twenty acres of glacially scoured meadows with spectacular views across the water to Vancouver Island.
The suite is a wing of a private home. It offers three private entrances, two bedrooms, a deck, wood fired sauna, and large library. Outdoors there is room to roam and explore with rope swings, a hammock, and tree house, as well as a half court with ping pong.
If you want to feel 'away from it all' this is the place for you. The combination of privacy and extensive views is unique.
Please note the uneven terrain around the home is not appropriate for guests using wheelchairs or walkers.

Mt. Rainier is visible to the Southeast and the lights of Victoria, British Columbia twinkle in the West. The Suite's unique location provides stunning views of both sunrises and sunsets. Relax and enjoy the ambiance in your own private hot tub. Resident deer are often seen browsing in the yard.

At night the stars blanket the sky and lights of passing freighters dance along Haro Strait below. On foggy nights and mornings you can hear the distant call of the Limekiln State Park lighthouse foghorn.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: As a an educator and writer I travel extensively. When I am home I get the feeling of continued travel by hosting people in my guest suite. I enjoy facilitating guests vacations and helping them get the most out of their time on the island. As a long term resident of San Juan Island I have plenty of suggestions for activities! I raised my family here at Sunny Knoll, and I enjoy hosting families with children and seeing them explore and play around the mountain top.

Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor, WA, USA:
I grew up in Portland, Oregon and up my family would charter sailboats in the islands in the summers. I thought the San Juan Islands were paradise, and I moved here at age 24 to live my dream life. I can't imagine ever moving away from my private mountain paradise. After my children left home I opened the Guest Suite so others could enjoy this special place.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Surrounded by pristine beauty and panoramic vistas, with areas to explore; or just relax with a book or in the hot tub watching the sky, trees, wildflowers, deer and birds....Sunny Knoll is a perfect spot for families as well as a romantic getaway for a couple (see specials).
