Property description

Westcott Bay is a quiet retreat from the energy of Roche Harbor Resort ... yet only a 5-minute walk to one of the country's finest resorts that includes a spa, market, clothing store and more. Our home sleeps up to 8 comfortably and is a great place to create memories for families with children.

We are constantly updating the home with new furniture, bedding, linens, and original artwork. There is a fully appointed kitchen with quartz counters that has everything you need for cooking and entertaining. There is even an iMac and wireless internet, though you’ll probably spend your time outdoors …

Soak in the serenity of Westcott Bay and its abundant wildlife. Enjoy morning coffee on the deck and watch eagles fly overhead and pelicans sunning themselves on mooring buoys. Head down the stairs to the tidal flats and dig for clams at low tide. Sip your wine and watch the seals and otters play right in front of you. Or make a stop at the dog park on the short walk to Roche Harbor Resort.

If you’re driving, it’s a quick trip (or a casual paddle on a paddle board or kayak) to English Camp, a historic national park with great hiking trails. A bit further down the west side, check out Lime Kiln state park where you can literally watch Orcas play right in front of you!

At night, roast s'mores at the fire pit and see stars so bright, you’ll wonder if the earth has somehow moved closer to them. Come enjoy all there is to offer in this special spot … and make memories to last a lifetime.

Our home has the best of both worlds. We are on the quiet side of Roche Harbor, yet only a short 5 minute walk to Roche Harbor Resort. Enjoy your morning coffee while watching seabirds on and eagles above Westcott Bay, the most abundant wildlife bay on San Juan Island.
