About the Property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Waterfront Home with hot tub. (Photos tell the story.)

News flash! Due to an abundant count of crab, Fish and Wildlife just opened a Special Open Season for Crab here in Friday Harbor now until December 20, 2016.

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.)
If you like the photos, you will enjoy the house. It is spacious, clean, secluded, and quiet with sensational marine views from every window. Kitchen remodel is now in progress with new floors and appliances.
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…” We can add, in the evening, the moonlight on the water is like a scene in a Cary Grant movie.

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, full 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.

Note from the Antique Roadshow: In the master bedroom upstairs you will find a chair that Napoleon actually sat in.

Our property is smoke-free and pets are not allowed. (many of our guests are allergic.)

Something else to look forward to---Westcott Bay Oyster Farm

Bill and Doree Webb founded Westcott Bay Oyster Farm on San Juan Island. There 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.
Other attractions
:
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.

The Mineral Point residence is a 10 minute drive to Roche Harbor Resort, English Camp a National Historical Park and Westcott Bay Oyster Farm. Mineral Point is an excellent starting and ending point for bicycling on San Juan Island. this residence also shares a sandy community beach which is walking distance from the residence. There are also many activities to do while staying here, including whale watching and hiking around the Westside and South end of the Island and an enormous amount of sight seeing activities. Minutes from Roche Harbor with dining, boating and historical walks through the Mausoleum and surrounding areas. Just minutes from the town of Friday Harbor where you can rent bicycles for the day, or enjoy our many choices of restaurants or just relax and take in the views.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

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.
