About the Property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bath Cottage With Waterviews (Sleeps 2)

The cottage is in a very quiet setting; you can hear the sound of the humming birds as well as the whales, and walk to the edge of the pasture from the cottage to see the Orcas as they pass by. The nights are very dark and quiet as well. Set in a pastoral setting on a six-acre horse ranch, there is a lovely perennial garden outside your door with a pick your own vegetable garden (in season).

We are walking distance to secluded Eagle Cove with a sandy beach great for sunbathing & wading. Walk to American Camp National Park for hiking opportunities and island history information. We are just a 12 minute drive to Friday Harbor.

The interior design is a mix of world motifs acquired during our travels featuring oriental rugs, and European accessories and has a French Provence influence. There is also a lovely gas fireplace for romantic evenings.

Wake up to a view of a nature garden from your bedroom with a comfortable queen size bed. The elegant deluxe bathroom has a claw foot tub and toilet and vanity, Italian tiles and marble, heated floors and heated towel rack. The second bathroom has a lovely tiled shower with heated floors. Outside there is access to a picnic table and chairs.

About the owner: Mary is an artist (painter) with her studio on site and also enjoys gardening, interior design, music,baking and riding her horses. Fred likes to golf and is a local CPA with a Friday Harbor practice. Both have traveled extensively in Europe and North Africa. We love meeting new people and look forward to helping you get the most out of your visit to San Juan Island.

Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor, WA, USA:
This property is a sunny location facing south east, south and west and is warmer and sunnier than other parts of the island,and mainly free of mosquitoes. There is a lovely 3 mile walk nearby with water and pastoral views and an easy walk to American Camp.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Though the cottage is in proximity to the main house, it is private. The benefits are that the owners are here and can attend to any needs you might have. You can interact with one another or be by yourselves as you wish.
