About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

I’m an adorable petite cottage fully furnished with laminate flooring, tile counter tops, a ¾ bath, deck on three sides, private parking and quiet surroundings 4.5 miles from Friday Harbor. A small well-mannered dog could be my friend, but you need to take your dog with you when you leave. My walk-in closet is off my one bedroom with a queen bed and I have ample storage cabinets as well as a stack washer-dryer. The kitchen is fully stocked with all necessary accoutrements for cooking and eating (food not included). Free WiFi is available. I will remain faithful for at least two days. My friends do no drugs or tobacco including marijuana.

The setting is quiet & rural with beautiful, safe walking and biking from my deck. A part-year stream runs through my property and there is a gas barbeque on my deck with outdoor chairs and a table.

About Dennis

Gayle has operated Bountiful Herbs Farm & Nursery for over 20 years and is active at the San Juan Island Farmers' Market. Dennis is retired and is Gayle's back office worker; he also takes on multiple part-time jobs including camp store clerk at Lakedale Campground, tour bus driving all summer and others.

Dennis purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Dennis chose San Juan Island

It is quiet & away from the wind and cooler weather along the shoreline. The surroundings are more conducive to herb growing and uninterrupted walks on and about country lanes.

What makes this cottage unique

When we bought the property it was a house in a bowl. Through the blessings of God it is now a place of beauty and serenity.

San Juan County is in a 'Rain Shadow' and receives about half the rain of Seattle. Tourism tends to be seasonal with the summer months being the most crowded and expensive, However, the fall, spring and even the winter can be very attractive, and less expensive, for those wishing a quieter environment. Consider it!

Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage that was just perfect for me and my wife. Dennis was very gracious to meet us as we arrived. A wonderful place to stay away from the main harbors on San Juan Island. We wished we could have stayed longer.

Bountiful in Beauty and Charm

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage At Bountiful Herbs is in a lovely setting in the woods and is overflowing charm and character. It is close to town but still out far enough to be quiet and peaceful, A great place to unplug and relax. The owners are friendly and helpful but not intrusive in any way. We loved little Heidi and wished she would have come around more.

The cottage is clean and stocked with everything you need.

It is perfect for two people but you will need a vehicle to get to and from the ferry and other places if you wish to dine out or explore the island. I highly recommend it and would like to stay longer next time :-)

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay in this little cottage. The property is beautiful. The hosts were wonderful and full of great suggestions, they also gave us plenty of space after we arrived. The cottage had everything that we needed for our two night stay. It is a short and very pretty drive to Friday Harbor if you want to go into town. But far enough away to be quite and peaceful. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you!

Charming cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

It is a finely appointed accommodation for short- or long-term stays. My friend found the magnetic screen doors off-putting in that they didn't quite reach the floor and he thought critters would come in under the screen.

Very nice cottage in the woods great host

  • 5 of 5

We arrived Friday evening around 7:00 pm and were greeted by our host Dennis. We unloaded our motorcycle and went about settling in for our weekend stay. The cottage was everything that we could of asked for. It was very clean, well furnished and tastefully decorated. It has everything a person would need for a weekend or a longer stay. Someone complained about the bed, yes it's on wheels. But I have bad back (three fused vertebra) and i slept no problem as did my wife. The cottage is located about five minutes from Friday harbor and is easy to find and access any point on the island form it's location. The property is very nicely landscaped, Gayle has a little gift shop there that my wife loved. Unfortunately for us my wife became very sick Sunday morning and she couldn't get on the motorcycle. to travel. Our host helped us find a place to spend Sunday and even gave my poor sick wife and I ride to town. Dennis & Gayle went above and beyond to help us out. I would recommend their charming cottage anyone.
