Notre maison

SNOW IS RARE HERE, but we love the picture so much!
The house has a wrap-around balcony, a deck, spacious rooms with an abundance of natural light, and custom designed bathrooms. The combined kitchen/dining room is large and opens out directly to the garden.
Located 40 meters from the stunning Mitchell Bay (see photos), you'll be able to fish for your own crabs or go for a tonic swim. The bay is also great for taking out the row boat and the kayak available for you to use.
If you value peace and quiet, you'll appreciate that the house is secluded and accessed by a private lane. If you enjoy hikes, you can take the trail up to nearby Mt Young and its 360º view. If you like dining outside, relaxing, and watching the sun set, you can enjoy doing so in the large natural garden that slopes down to a private beach. We love watching the herons, and other wildlife while sitting outside.
On the other side of the house, you will find pastures with horses and cows, an alpaca farm, small lakes, and rolling hills.
WiFi available.

Localisation

Quartier

WHERE IS IT?
Located in the U.S. in the triangle delimited by Vancouver, Seattle and Victoria, all three cities are less than a 2 hours drive away (including additional ferry travel of about one hour). There are about a half dozen ferry crossings a day (the service is State owned).
San Juan Island has a micro-climate and benefits from 50% less rain than Seattle. In fact, just a bike ride away you'll find acres of lavender harvested for perfume and toiletries. Besides its climate, it is famous for Orcas whale watching. Free Willy, the movie, was filmed here.

WHAT ABOUT AMENITIES?
A 15 minute drive to shopping areas. Friday Harbor, a small friendly town of 5000 inhabitants, offers a cinema, a theater, boutiques, supermarkets and art galleries, as well a health club, spas, a medical center and an impressive public library.

WHAT TO DO?
Whale watching cruises, kayak tours, boat rental (power and sail), scuba-diving, bicycling San Juan or the 3 other main islands (Orcas, Lopez and Shaw). Also golfing, biplane and seaplane rides. And of course visiting the oyster farm, the lavender farm, the alpaca farm...
On the continent, day trips of white water rafting, mountaineering on Mt Baker glacier and skiing in Whistler (next site for the Olympics games).
