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.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
