About Jeanne Sleeper
Owner, Jeanne fell in love with this island in 1976 when she was there to teach a class, visited several times over the years and in 2006 two families found the 16-acre parcel of our dreams. Both families live in busy So CA and they wanted the peace and privacy that comes with the rural forest and lots of space. Their love of the ocean, nature, art and sculpture fill the house and gardens.
Jeanne Sleeper purchased this House in 2012
Why Jeanne Sleeper chose Friday Harbor
This custom property is a low VOC, low allergen, amenity-filled home situated so light fills the house and every piece of art has a story. Kids have room to explore, enjoy a rural environment, see stars at night while parents read, BBQ, take walks and enjoy porch and patio sitting time. It's nice to be away from the traffic and town. Enjoy the craftsmanship and love that the island artisans built into my home and the computer and internet connection available for guests.
What makes this House unique
The wetlands behind the house has frogs, dragon flies & tad poles. The small deer come to drink and then walk around the lawn perimeters. The walkabout is a perfect 1/4 mile walk thru the woods to start and end each day. The property is in the island center, so Lime Kiln State Park, American Beach, Friday Harbor town or Roche Harbor are only a 20 minute scenic drive away.

Stunning home in a quiet and peaceful setting.
Our family of 5 (including daughter age 9, son age 7, and dog) stayed here for 3 nights to cap off the end of our summer. We could not have enjoyed our time more. The house is so inviting, with comfy beds, a gorgeous master bath (and tub!) and also a well stocked/equipped kitchen. Best of all, the house has a fabulous open design, with lots of places to easily move from the inside to the outside, and soak up the stillness. This home and property are top notch, in every which way. We'll be back, and certainly spread the word to friends who are seeking the comforts of all things modern, nestled in an oasis from a time gone by. Transformative. Thank you!
Heaven in the woods
Gorgeous property and well appointed home. Very comfortable and great communication with owner.
Very nice house. Recommended!
We came to the island for a family reunion at my aunt's house, so were not at this house except at night to sleep. This was more than we needed (and way more costly than we would would usually chose), but our airbnb reservation was canceled by the owner and this was basically the only place left on the island that we could find that would welcome our small dog (4th of July weekend). It was a bit far from where we wanted to be, but if you want a place to hang out and enjoy the solitude, this would be ideal. It takes about 17 minutes to drive to Friday Harbor.
The house was lovely with nice artwork, a modern interior, walk in closets and upgraded fixtures. Well stocked with cleaning supplies, dishes, extra towels, blankets, pillows and sheets, a Keurig coffee maker, etc. Really everything you would ever need. The garden areas around the house were well maintained, although the grass had not been mowed in a while, so was quite tall. I wish we could have enjoyed this more, but we did not come to the island to hang our at our rental, so this was an expensive place when we only needed a couple of beds and a shower.
The things I dinged it a star for:
1. The gravel roads leading up to the property had just been oiled and re-graveled, so gravel flew up in the wheel wells and on our running boards. Even though we drove very slow, our truck was a mess. After a couple of days of people driving on it, it did get better though.
2. The high ceilings made the house very echo-y, which made every noise seem extra loud.
The owner was very communicative by e-mail and phone, so overall, we had a very good experience and would recommend this house to those looking for an awesome get-away.
