Overview

About the property

waterfront cottage, 1 bedroom, 1 bath, 1 mile from town

Sawmill Creek Cottage offers secluded peace for your island getaway. Comfortable and private, it is just a one mile walk from Friday Harbor.

The cottage sits on a shared low bank beach on a small salt water cove known as Jackson's Lagoon. There is a freshwater pond and stream on one side, which provides privacy and acts as a natural boundary. You will share the property with blue herons, kingfishers, eagles, and the occasional deer or fox, and watch the moon rise bigger than life over the North Bay at dusk. Enjoy our plush queen, all natural, latex, soy, and bamboo bed. New washer/dryer, new appliances.

The secluded yard offers a patio table and barbeque. Blackberry pies are there for the picking in early autumn. In the quiet winter months, create a second honeymoon or holiday turkey memories in this snug warm cottage.

About The Owner

We are Alaskans with roots in Friday Harbor. Victor is a life long Alaskan commercial fisherman who is now a merchant mariner, and he may be one of the crew on your ferry to the island. Phebe’s ties to the island go way back, even beyond childhood memories of sunburned backs from exploring tide pools, hayfields, salmon bakes and the joy of arriving each summer from Alaska on the ferry. The story continues, as we hope that our guests (and our grandchildren!) are creating memories just like that during their visit to the island. Come see us!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1990

Why The Owner chose San Juan Island

When we bought the property we saw the cottage as a place for our family and friends to stay when they came to visit us. We've found we can offer it as a vacation rental as well, and hope to make our visitors to the cottage feel at home.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was very lovely with a nice view of the water. The bathroom looks newly renovated. The bed is probably the most comfortable bed I have ever stayed in!

Beautiful. Clean. Peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to have a peaceful unplugged weekend, and I was pleasantly surprised with the Sawmill Creek Cottage. It was pristine, perfectly located, and Phebe was a wonderful host. If I can ever make it back up that way, I will definitely stay again.

A special stay....

  • 5 of 5

Such a great find!

My husband and I wanted to stay somewhere special for our anniversary. We found it! Sawmill Creek Cottage provided a cozy cottage and wonderful surroundings. We had a light dusting of snow our first day, a black fox visited and the ducks and blue herons were frequent company. The cottage provided warmth and seclusion, with town only a short drive away. The kitchen is well appointed with a stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, fridge/freezer and even a washer/dryer. We look forward to our next stay at this special cottage. Thank you Phebe and Victor for your care of this gem.

Perfect cottage for a short getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay during our short getaway! This cottage was cute, clean and had all of the amenities we needed to have a comfortable stay. You can't get a better location: private waterfront view and within minutes of downtown Friday Harbor. We plan on reserving again for our next Island trip!
