Property description

PRIVATE BEACH, HOT TUB, VIEW OF MOUNT BAKER, CLOSE TO GOLF COURSE, TENNIS COURSE & FRIDAY HARBOR

Before San Juan Island was discovered as a travel destination, Friday Harbor was a cluster of modest houses on a few central streets. When the commercial area began to expand, two of the vintage homes were preserved by moving them south of town and onto a beautiful stretch of Griffin Bay waterfront. Creatively connected by a new central living space, these historic structures now form the opposing wings of a delightful island residence.

The property is located behind a gated entry, so it’s extremely private, however THE GOLF CLUB AND TENNIS COURTS (OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AND YOU CAN USE OUR RACKETS) ARE JUST ACROSS THE ROAD and town amenities are within a few miles. The landscape surrounding the home is simply gorgeous, offering 8 sunny acres of garden, grassy clearings with a badminton set you can use, ponds to explore, and a hot tub under the starlit sky. And then there is the beach. Just wander down a pathway at the shoreline to find your own sheltered pebbled cove, complete with driftwood logs, tide pools, and a dead-ahead view of Mount Baker. This is where you will likely spend many hours in quiet contemplation and enjoying picnics. This beautiful waterfront is also a great spot for launching kayaks and there’s even a buoy for your use. _Confirm size of boat prior to arrival._

Those seeking to relive carefree childhood summers will love this vacation home. The older sections of the residence create a sensation of remembrance. One wing rambles through a small office into a master bedroom with king size bed, en-suite bathroom, and walk-in closet. Above the office is a semi-open loft with two twin beds where children and teens can snuggle up. _Note that there are low ceilings and non-conforming stairs & railings._ The kitchen with breakfast nook and the laundry room are on the main level of the second wing.

Upstairs are two additional bedrooms, one with a queen bed plus futon, and the second with one double bed and one twin bed. A second bathroom with tub/shower is on the upper level as well. The two older wings are separated by the dining room and living room. Satellite TV & WiFi are provided as well. The waterside windows frame an incredible view of the bay, glorious sunrises, and Mount Baker. Stretching across the front of the home is an inviting deck containing lounge and dining furniture plus a propane BBQ.

The home is comfortable, attractive, and unpretentious. The atmosphere is a small step back in time, a place that children of all ages will cherish as they run barefoot in the yard, wade at the shore, play games and laugh. Come make your own Island memories at Griffin Bay Beach; we expect you will want to return year after year.

_There will be an additional $250 charge if guests wish use of the hot tub during the Quiet Season. _
