Property description

This unique island vacation home and guest cabin overlook serene Westcott Bay on San Juan Island. It's a great place to stay year round -- peaceful and picturesque in the cooler months, and strikingly beautiful in the sunshine of the warmer months, with plenty to do within walking distance as well as around the island or in Roche Harbor & Friday Harbor.

Relax and breathe in the sea air while overlooking the bay from the home's large front windows, dining on the spacious deck, or sitting at the small pebble beach as gentle waves come in and gulls glide by. Sea otter, bald eagle, and hawk sightings are common. A short, gradual trail leads from the house & guest house down to the pebble/barnacle beach. In addition to views of the bay, the property looks out into lush greenery of "British Camp", a protected national park. Catch glimpses of the world-famous Westcott Bay oyster farm, a small operation on the water's edge.

Our family's property includes 2 structures: a main house and a guest house. There is a short trail between the two (about 40 feet). Combined, these sleep a total of 6-8 people. Large windows let in lots of natural light. The main house has a central living area that connects to an open kitchen -- great for being social while cooking. The kitchen has plenty of counter space, a view of the water, and is fully stocked with cooking appliances. The large wooden dining table is great for group meals. The guest cabin has it's own bathroom, burner, mini-fridge, & small dining space.

The beachfront just below the house is good for digging clams or collecting muscles on the rocks. The bay is a great place for dungeness crabbing during open season (typically July through September/October; details about open season and licenses can be found on the Washington Dept of Fish & Wildlife website).

Great surrounding area for walking, hiking, kayaking, biking, boating, fishing, and crabbing. It's a 25 minute walk or 5 minute drive to reach charming Roche Harbor (visit the Roche Harbor Resort website for details). Friday Harbor, which offers a variety of activities, is 15 minutes away by car and 1 hour by bike. To visit larger ocean-side beaches, drive or bike to the other side of the island (e.g. American Camp or South Beach). Whale watching opportunities can be arranged in Roche Harbor or Friday Harbor.

We invite you to come enjoy this special spot nestled in the gorgeous San Juan Islands!
