Friday Harbor Vacation Rentals
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Acanthus Suites is owned and operated by Mother and Son Team; Lynn Danaher and Ryan Bennett. Both arrived from Alaska to Friday Harbor in May of 1994 and worked together to create San Juan Excursions, offering both whale watching and sea kayak tours. Sold in 2000. Lynn started to expand into repurposing under-utilized commercial properties in downtown Friday Harbor, with a primary focus on historic restoration. Ryan traveled extensively for several years working in the snowboard and skiing industry. He returned to Friday Harbor in 2008 to assist his Mother, Lynn to co-manage the family business. They have expanded to own 4 historic homes along Argyle Ave. which are used as vacation rentals and commercial offices.
Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor, WA, USA:
This was an underutilized commercial property in a great location. It was beautifully restored and needed some creative thought as to how to best apply it's attributes to our visitor industry.
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Classic craftsman style, very well preserved, lots of square footage guaranteeing spacious suites, that are both convenient to downtown friday harbor and all the activities available on san juan island. A true gem!!
