Clean, new, and quiet. Private patio with view of Griffin Bay
Beautiful, brand new two person studio cottage, with a full kitchen, inspiring picture window views of Griffin bay and beyond. Comfortable queen bed. Sitting area has gorgeous water view. The lagoon at the bottom of our yard has marvelous bird activity.
This property is on the water; you can step onto the shore. Private garden, entrance and parking. This location is close to town, yet peaceful and surrounded by nature.
The lagoon provides wonderful bird watching opportunities and the sunny south facing site is truly enjoyable.

About Jim and Peg LeBlanc
Jim and Peg LeBlanc are fun loving artists and thoroughly enjoy living in the San Juan islands. We love to garden, kayak and bird watch. We have collaborated on making this property a simple and beautiful place to spend time.
Jim and Peg LeBlanc purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Jim and Peg LeBlanc chose Friday Harbor
For many years when we were living elsewhere (our former fast-paced, urban, busy , fun, and noisy ) the San Juan Islands were a beacon for us, shaping our goals for a new chapter of living a little slower, a little simpler, with more natural beauty. We have tried to keep to that vision in making our little cottage a place where you might experience what we love about his part of the world.
What makes this Cottage unique
We really think this is the best of both worlds for out of town visitors. You are surrounded by the beauty of this unique environment, the water of Griffin Bay, the clean air that blows over these islands, the quiet of being distance from major traffic ways... and yet we are walking distance to the town's restaurants, theaters, museums, the harbor and music venues. We love living where we do on this fantastic island. Beautiful and convenient!

A respite from the real world
Peg and Jim are superb hosts. Le Shaqteau was designed by Peg and remodeled/rebuilt by Jim. It is full expression of their aesthetics and sensibilities (having seen other properties and furnishings they created). The setting is lovely - large picture windows from the sitting room and kitchen overlook North Bay leading to the Juan de Fuca Strait in the San Juan Islands. The quiet is so restful yet minutes from downtown Friday Harbor and the ferry terminal and a few minutes more to Friday Harbor Airport. A fully-equipped kitchen means you can have sunset wine and cheese on the patio just outside the sitting room. Taxi into downtown is just $10. Roche Harbor Resort is 19 miles away via taxi , as well as bikeable. You can bring your car via WSDOT ferry from Anacortes - lots of folks in line to board ferry had bike/scooter racks. Lots of wonderful hiking trails on the island.
Beautiful space. Water access and views. We definitely plan on visiting again!!
Jim was attentive and we also felt we had a lot of privacy. It’s a great spot for a romantic getaway!
Everything was easy, finding the cottage, getting settled, access to Friday Harbor, peace and quiet. It's a great location to start our bike rides all over San Juan Island, up the West coast, North to Roche Harbor or South to American Camp. The cottage layout is wonderful with beautiful views from the sitting room, the bed is very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed.
Best place to stay on the island!
If you enjoy privacy, tranquility and nature then this is were you want to be! We loved the comfortable bed, the private lagoon teeming with wildlife and being able to fix our own meals if we wanted . It is so much better then staying in a hotel, it's warm and cozy, you would not believe you are minutes from Friday Harbor! Jim and Peggy are the best, they are there if you need them and disappear when you don't. We hated to leave and can't wait to go back! We have the best memories because of them and the cottage. Thank you so much! Jack & Jan Burrows Derby Ka
