About Etta Egeland's home:
The home was originally built by Sheriff Newt Jones in 1895. Sheriff Jones was responsible for ordering the only hanging ever performed in San Juan County. He was 28 at that time. Be sure to ask Carol about this fascinating story.
Etta Egeland moved in during the 1960's. She was born in a log cabin, raised on San Juan Island and the founder of the San Juan County Historic Society. <br>
She had a strong commitment to preserving the history of the San Juan Island and I have tried to stay true to her vision during the restoration. Ask me to tell you the delightful stories her family has shared.
The home is a restored 1895 Prairie Victorian San Juan Island Home located in the New York Time's recommended Number 2 destination in the world to visit!
The home's interior is brimming with traditional Victorian charm and original building details such as the staircase banister, moldings, original fir flooring and the exterior patterned shingles.
The Property Details:
* Ettas Place Suites - a Boutique Hotel style accommodation with 3 available suites; each with separate entrances accessed through a main hallway.
* If you have need for a larger family or couples that enjoy separate spaces you could occupy two or all three suites, I do have a discounted rate for combining units.
* Sorry, there is no large common kitchen or living room for larger groups to gather.
* Ettas Place is conveniently located in downtown Friday Harbor; only 4 blocks from the San Juan Island ferry landing so it is cost effective to leave your car at the Ferry Landing in Anacortes, then just walk on to save the higher ferry rates and long waits during the summer!
*The town's historic restaurants and shops are all within a short walking distance of Ettas Place.
* Several modes of transportation are easily available to get around on this 10 mile wide by 22-mile long island.

Cancellation Policy: If you cancel a confirmed reservation within 48 hours of the arrival date and the dates are re-booked, there will be a full refund less a $75 administrative fee. If you cancel within the 48 hours or your dates cannot be re-booked, initial deposit amount is retained. I do make every effort to re-book the reservation, in August/Sept this should not be a problem as there usually are last minute requests.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I am Carol Anderson, owner of Etta's Place, a Washington State native and have lived in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island for over 18 years. I enjoy being active in community activities and love all the natural places San Juan has to explore. Being close to nature is very important to me. I am a Fellow Member of the Explorer's Club and an active member of the Washington Fly Fishing Club. My professional background is developing online learning for university courses. I went back to work at Microsoft in order to purchase and restore Etta' Egeland's Home.
Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor, WA, USA:
I bought Etta Egeland's home in 2006 after she passed away at the age of 105. Etta Egeland was a very special woman on San Juan Island; I met her when I first moved to San Juan Island. Her home was always open to travelers or anyone who needed a place to stay overnight. She was the consummate historian, active in preserving the town's history and the founder of the San Juan Historic Society and Museum which is still very active today. This historic society is responsible for documenting all the town's historic houses in the Historic Preservation Manual, a document which guided me in the restoration this lovely home. Etta's Place Suites is a tribute to both Etta Egeland's passion for history and her enduring kindness towards travelers.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:

The unit has a separate entrance. Air conditioning is available, although usually only needed during the month of August.
