About the Property

4 bedroom, 3 bathroom with Bay Views

This unique San Juan island vacation home overlooks Westcott Bay in a private, peaceful setting nestled among madrona and fir trees. There is a main house and a guest house, with a short trail between the two (about 40 feet). Enough beds to sleep 6-8 adults (max 9 if kids included). A five minute drive (25 minute walk) from Roche Harbor, our family's property is a fantastic year round getaway spot -- peaceful and picturesque in the cooler months, and beautiful in the warmer sunny months with lots of on-island activities. Relax and breathe in fresh sea air while dining on the spacious deck, overlooking the bay from the home's large front windows, or sitting at the small pebble beach with gentle waves and gulls gliding by. Sea otter, bald eagle, and hawk sightings are common.

MAIN HOUSE: Large windows let in lots of natural light, which has as a central living room area (gas stove included) that connects to an open kitchen. The kitchen has lots of counter space, a view of the water, and is fully stocked with cooking appliances and staples. A large wood dining table is great for group meals. Master bedroom has bay view and sliding glass doors to front deck. 2nd bedroom is on the other side of the house from the master bedroom, and has window that faces the woods.

GUEST CABIN: A cute and cozy space with it's own bathroom, dining nook, mini fridge and counter top. Guest house bedrooms share a wall. 1 room has a double bed, the other has a bunk bed.

OUTDOOR SPACE/VIEW: A short, gradual trail leads 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. Across the bay is the world-famous Westcott Bay Shellfish Company, a small operation on the water's edge. You can dig clams or collect mussels along the property's beachfront. 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).

ACTIVITIES: The surrounding region is great for walking, hiking, kayaking, biking, boating, fishing, and crabbing. Friday Harbor is 20 minutes away by car or 1 hour by bike. Large ocean-side beaches are a 20-30 minute drive 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 very special spot nestled in the gorgeous San Juan Islands!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Our family purchased this piece of land in 1983 and spent many years camping here. We worked with local island contractors and builders in 2001 and 2002 to build what is now the "guest house", soon followed by construction of the larger main house. The land and home are very special to our family, and we are pleased that friends and renters have also been able to enjoy this beautiful part of the earth!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Privacy and very quiet - located in a woodsy area away from the road
