About the Property
3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Waterfront Home with hot tub. (Photos tell the story.)
Almost ready for you----A complete remodel of our living room, dining room and kitchen with state-of-the- art appliances including a ten pound ice maker. Keep checking for exciting photos showing all the new features.
Book a fabulous vacation with us and we can hook you up with our premier fishing guide who has a brand-new boat that can accommodate large groups. He tells us that King Salmon will be running in record-breaking numbers now through April, and Pink Salmon will be running in abundance September through October. This looks like an unusually prolific year in the islands for crab and oysters.
We are proud to offer you our quiet, comfortable waterfront home overlooking the wild salmon run on San Juan Channel with exquisite marine views from every window of boat and ferry traffic. King-size beds in the master bedrooms, a hot tub in the solarium, and a massage chair in the living room. Sleeps 7. (Free quote upon request.) Special discounts for April, May and June.
Exquisite marine views
The most exciting feature of the property is the view of boat and ferry traffic from every window. The last two groups of guests were thrilled to see whales, chasing wild salmon, breech the water again and again in front of the house. As Janet from San Jose remarked, 'This is a truly amazing place with stunning views of Turtle Back Mountain on Orcas Island, Mount Baker and gorgeous sunrises…
Janet commented, …"We loved the helpful staff and have already booked our next stay for our 2017 family reunion. Thank you Jeff and Cheyenne for the wonderful time … We can’t wait to see you next year!"'
The layout of the house:
Upstairs, we have a master bedroom with bath, living room with glassed-in deck for unobstructed views, brand-new kitchen, solarium with hot tub, and another bedroom with a single bed.
Downstairs, there is another master bedroom with bath and another room with twin beds. Laundry facilities are available.
Something else to look forward to---Westcott Bay Oyster Farm. Bill and Doree Webb founded the Westcott Bay Oyster Farm on San Juan Island. They developed a wonderful oyster which is a cross between a Kumamoto and a Pacific Gigas.
The Kumamoto has a very deep bottom shell and an extremely intense flavor but takes two years to grow to the size of a small thumbnail. The Gigas are the prevalent Pacific oyster and grow very fast, reaching four to five inches in only two years. The hybrid of these two varieties is their Westcott Bay Oyster. This is a marvelous attraction and is located a short ten minute drive from our Mineral Point waterfront home.
: Victoria Day Cruise (Operating daily from May 1st through October 31st.) In one day, you can visit the charming city of Victoria in Canada and also the world-famous Butchart Gardens. Leave in the morning and return in the evening to San Juan Island. Reservations & Information: (800) 668 7758 ext. 140.
Moments away is the elegant Roche Harbor Resort and Marina with its world-class restaurant. (Boat rentals are available). Also, tennis courts and a pool. It is a five minute drive from Mineral Point to another five-star restaurant, Duck Soup Inn.
Also, close to some of the best fishing grounds in the Pacific Northwest. Rent a boat and all fishing equipment from Snug Harbor or the Roche Harbor Resort (or bring your own boat).
Have you ever golfed on an island? For an unusual experience, try the San Juan Golf Course.
Also you are only moments away from the most exciting whale watching and sea kayaking in the Pacific Northwest with San Juan Safaris and Bon Accord Charters.
Only ten miles to Friday Harbor where you can board a ferry or fly a short distance to Canada for sight-seeing at the world-famous 130-acre Butchart Gardens. Enjoy the grandeur of the Empress Hotel in Victoria Harbor, and other attractions in charming downtown Victoria.
Our property manager, Cheyenne Mauldin, grew up in Friday Harbor and is available to assist you finding the best places to eat, and exploring interesting out-of-the-way places and events on the island. She recommends that you reserve space on the ferry you are coming from Anacortes to Friday Harbor.

About the owner: My name is Jeff Asher. I have lived on San Juan Island for about 29 years and spent the summers here since a young child. I have served the people of San Juan County as emergency dispatcher, deputy sheriff, deputy coroner, detective, and lead detective. I am the founder and coordinator of the county's 20 member dive, search, and rescue team. I am also the skipper of the Sheriff's Patrol Boat. Recently, my partner and I were honored with an award from the State of Washington for saving four people from drowning when their boat crushed on the rocks in darkness and rough waters. I have also served as a park ranger at Mount Rainier National Park, British Camp National Historical Park, and Pinnacles National Monument in California. For relaxation, I enjoy fine woodworking and restoring antique cars. My current project is the restoration of a park train circa 1930 that moved people around Coney Island in New York. We acquired the train from a farm in Sand Point, Pennsylvania, where Flight 93 passed over on the way down to Shanksville. My special joy is scuba diving with my sons, Russell and Sam. Our future plan: Explore some of the thousands of shipwrecks still underwater around the world.
