SAN JUAN ISLAND VACATION RENTAL. AMAZING VIEW WATERFRONT!

This vacation home on San Juan Island is a jewel! Set within five acres at the end of a sun-dappled lane, and perched right at the water's edge, Panorama Lodge enjoys an incomparable 180 degree vista of sea, sky, and mountains. Majestic Mount Baker looms to the east, Orcas Island is just across the channel, there is a backdrop of snow-capped Canadian Cascades, and resident bald eagles swoop directly overhead. Just offshore, luxury yachts, sailboats, ferries, seals, and even the occasional pod of Orca whales pass through vast deep blue waters in front of you. Photographs cannot capture this expansive setting, but guests in Panorama Lodge will feel they are living in a postcard.

When you relax or dine on the multi-level decks that extend across the entire waterside of the home, you will feel a part of this spectacular scenery. The view remains a focal point when indoors as well, as one's eye is drawn outward through an entire wall of bare and beautiful windows in the living and dining areas.

The interior of the home is sophisticated, customized with details reminiscent of a European chalet. The woodwork gleams, furnishings are stylish and solid, elegant accents include deluxe fixtures, stone floors, counter tops, and beautifully tiled bathrooms. A wonderful open kitchen, featuring a large prep island with counter seating, is central to the main level. New stainless steel appliances, including a six-burner stainless steel range and 36-inch oven, make cooking a very pleasant experience. Just past the dining area and down several steps is a cozy living room with propane fireplace and HDTV.

Offering three bedrooms and three baths, Panorama Lodge will appeal to families, couples, or to anyone seeking a private, upscale getaway. One bedroom is located off the living room and features generous closets, a queen size bed, and private bath with walk-in shower lined with mosaic tile. The upper level is an open loft containing a second queen size bed, perfect for early risers. The loft area is complimented with a balcony, large walk-in closet, and fabulous en-suite bathroom with dual vanities, glass block shower, and jetted tub. A third bedroom containing two twin beds is located on the entry-level with a bathroom including a tub/shower, and the washer/dryer is conveniently located off an adjacent hallway.

Panorama Lodge offers vacation visitors an extremely comfortable home in a very private setting landscaped by nature and surrounding forests. The property is located in a desirable neighborhood on the northwest side of the Island, about a ten minute drive from Roche Harbor and a fifteen minute drive from Friday Harbor.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at the property Aug 24-31 2017. It was perfect. The house sits perched above the water, with fantastic views eastward, Ferries and many boats traversing-- you can even see Mt. Baker. It great for outdoor entertaining, with a large deck, gas fireplace/table, gas grill and outdoor seating. The house itself is well built with quality everything. Nice furnishings, flat screen TV, cozy gas fireplace. Great internet connectivity. Comfortable beds. You can easily cook large meals in the modern, well-stocked kitchen. Commercial 36" gas range. Very private. We were going to book a whale watching trip, but on one day multiple pods of Orca swam closer to the house than the training whale boats could get! Gray Harbor seal, eagles, deer, jellyfish, many birds to see. Be aware that the main bedroom is on the upper level loft that is open to the main living areas, but it wasn't an issue for us. Great service from the property management company...perfect instructions and communications. Definitely recommend for a peaceful, private getaway. Would definitely book again. No complaints at all!

Reviewer Comments:

There were 5 of us for a short stay. Unfortunately the views were obscured by haze/smoke from fires in British Columbia. We can only imagine how wonderful the view would have been! Still we were in awe of the vistas. We enjoyed seeing a harbor seal in the waters below the deck. The house was clean and well-equipped. The location easy to find and private. We ate out one night and grilled on the deck one night. Communications from the management company were timely and helpful. We hope to visit again and would definitely recommend this location to others.

Reviewer Comments:

Spectacular view. If that's what you want rent this house. Be aware the master BR is a loft so folks standing in the kitchen can see you in bed not to mention the bath room has glass panes in the door so folks can see you in there as well. Not cool for several couples.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest - thank you for taking the time to leave a review with us on one of our properties. While we always strive for 5's in all categories we know sometimes issues come up. Your comments about the house and its layout are certainly true and do suggest a certain arrangement for multiples couples to be comfortable. We do feel however that the unique character of the house in these respects, is far outweighed by its quality and fit and finishes in nearly all other respects as well as the setting and views. Thank you again for staying with us. We hope you will return and give us an opportunity to exceed your expectations. Best Regards, General Manager.

Reviewer Comments:

This was our second stay at the Panorama Lodge. The quiet, waterside location drew us back with different friends this time. We really appreciated having the fire pit to take the edge off cool temperatures. The Lodge is conveniently located between Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor. Our itinerary was First Day: Roche Harbor sculpture garden, cemetery, resort. Second Day: Limekiln Park and American Camp. Third Day: English Camp.

Reviewer Comments:

Three couples (senior citizens) get together annually somewhere in the Northwest. We travel from Montana, Oregon and Arizona for our get-togethers. The lodge was everything we expected, and more. The quality of the home was very good, and we found it very clean. A real plus was having three bedrooms and three full bathrooms for each of our use. The directions to the property and to access the lock box for the key were easy to follow and we had no problem getting in upon our arrival. The home was clean and well equipped for the minimal cooking that we did. The only things that were not easy to use were the outside gas fireplace and the gas grill, neither lit easily with their built-in igniters. We needed to use a fire stick to light both for use. For activities, we golfed at the San Juan Country Club and rented a boat from Island Rentals at Roche Harbor to visit a number of places on other islands, i.e., Deer Harbor, Olga, and East Sound. We had delicious meals at The Place and Coho restaurants in Friday Harbor. We also shopped at Kings Market and the Fish Market on the Friday Harbor docks for food. Both had everything we wanted and needed. Should we be lucky enough to be able to return to beautiful San Juan Island for another vacation, we will definitely contact the rental agent to rent the Panorama Lodge # 173 again.
