Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

Come enjoy a relaxing retreat set in a beautiful garden conveniently located halfway between Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor.

Foxglove cottage is a charming cottage surrounded by a lovely garden situated on 20 acres of majestic fir and cedar forest.There is a small swimming pond with a dock and an old tennis court.The house is completely remodeled and almost brand new. There are slate floors in the kitchen, dining room and entry way and bamboo floors thru out the rest of the house. The original structure was built with beach logs and field stones and lots of creativity . This is truly a craftsman's creation.

The master bedroom is large and spacious with a small deck. The guest bedroom feels like a tree house. The upstairs bathroom has slate floors, a stone sink , tile shower and small Jacuzzi tub. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and flat screen HDTV. The guest bedroom also has a queen size bed. Both bedrooms have lots of windows viewing the surrounding garden.

The living room has a double door onto a small patio overlooking the pond. There is a large flat screen T.V. and DVD player. The house has access to Dish television.

The kitchen is completely equipped for you to do your own meals . There is a large window seat for lounging or sleeping an extra guest. Right outside the kitchen is a patio with table and chairs for outside dining.

The owners live on the property and will be available for any questions you may have. Interaction can be as much or as little as you like. Fresh fruit and veggies will often be available from the garden. Just ask me what might be ripe for the picking. The property is deer fenced so we ask our guests to please remember to close the gates. It is truly amazing how much one deer can eat in an evening stroll thru the garden.

We have an old sheltie who may wander down for a visit. He is a little nervous and may bark but if you ignore him he will go away. He does not bite and actually won't get to close.

There are many wonderful and exciting places to visit on San Juan Island. There are numerous beaches and parks close by. You can hike , bike, swim, whale watch, kayak, or just relax. It is truly a vacationers paradise.

Adorable house in gorgeous garden!

  • 5 of 5

This house is SO cute! It is situated in the center of the island in a place that is easily accessible to anywhere you want to go. The house itself is large and comfortable, and even nicer than the pics show. The bedrooms are large with extremely comfortable beds. The bathroom upstairs has a large tub and shower and downstairs is a bathroom with just a shower. There is a bonus living area that is a great place to cozy up and watch movies after the sun goes down. Also a fully outfitted kitchen so you can cook whatever you want.

The other amazing feature is the incredible gardens surrounding the property. They are perfect. Just about every flower that grows in the PNW is on display. Gorgeous.

Just FYI there is no cell phone service at the house but wifi works well. Also as it says in the description, this is really a place you need some sort of transportation to get to. Not walking distance to anything.

Overall a great stay, if we come back to San Juan Island we would definitely stay here again.

WOW!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect! We had 2 adults 2 kids and just needed to get away from it all. My stress melted away as soon as I got onto the property. The house was made with so much love. It was so peaceful. Perfect for anyone who appreciates nature & art. Thank you Becky, by allowing us to stay in your home, you gave us some peace in our lives. We will be back!

Terrific getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our early fall weekend at Foxglove Cottage made for the perfect getaway with friends and family. The house is very comfortable, attractive and full of character. The kitchen is well equipped and we spent two long evenings sitting around the kitchen table, cooking and chatting. The gardens are lovely and we enjoyed watching the woodpeckers eating apples on the tree (who knew!?) and we had a badminton set with us, so we played that on the tennis court.

We rounded the weekend off with memorable whale watching and Sunday evening on the terrace at the crabhouse before taking the evening ferry home.

Becky keeps the property in very nice condition and the HomeAway app functioned pretty well as a convenient way of gathering all the trip/contact information in one place.

Nick and family, Seattle.
