Private and peaceful, Red Roof Acres farm offers your own adorable barn loft apartment, capable of sleeping up to 6, complete with a full kitchen and bath and wood-burning fireplace and nestled amidst 23 beautiful acres of pastures and woods in the heart of San Juan Island. Pack a picnic lunch and head minutes down our road to a popular whale-watching site at Lime Kiln State Park, where you can spot an Orca or Minke whale, or stroll to an internationally-acclaimed lavender farm that's just around the corner. Have you always wanted to bring your horse on a vacation where you could ride on a beach? We offer overnight horse boarding and are just minutes away from hundreds of acres of trails and horse-friendly beaches. As a family owned and operated farm, we have a barn with an adjoining paddock, three separate pastures, a round pen and parking for your horse trailer or RV. For those who want a full water experience, you can take a whale-watching boat tour, rent kayaks and spot wildlife such as seals and bald eagles, or test your fishing skills on a chartered boat. It's also fun to rent mopeds or bicycles and get a more personal look at the island, which boasts lush woods, gorgeous shores and plenty of wildlife, including deer, raccoons and wild turkeys. Or take a ten-minute drive into town and enjoy some of the best restaurants in the Pacific Northwest. Be sure to get an ice cream cone from the little shop on the docks--they have wonderful flavors! Our farm is located at the center of all that San Juan Island has to offer, and yet is so private that you can't see any neighbors.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Matt is a retired park ranger and Amy is a journalist and writer who decided to combine their love of horses and the ocean by living on beautiful San Juan Island.

Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor, WA, USA:
We searched for years to find just the right place where we could be near the breath-taking beauty of the ocean and the majesty of whales and also keep our beloved horses at home. Our farm has a perfect central location, and we are ten minutes away in either direction from the best that San Juan Island has to offer, including whale watching, beachcombing, kayaking, great restaurants and fun shops.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Our farm is a favorite of tourists, who often pull over on the road out front to take a photo! We especially love the red metal roofs that top every building--hence the name we gave it. While we are in the 'rain shadow' and therefore protected from getting the rain that Seattle is famous for, if it does have a brief shower here you will enjoy the rhythm of the rain on the roof. And minutes later, when the sun is back out, you can walk out onto the deck and spot a deer stepping out of the woods that are only steps from your door.
