Great spot in Friday Harbor!

  • 5 of 5

Great location right in town. Really enjoyed the balcony with a partial water view - awesome place to sit with a cup of coffee in the morning. Close to ferry landing, restaurants, coffee shops, etc...excellent amenities, very clean - top notch. Loved every minute of our time on San Juan Islands - saw Orcas every day! We would definitely stay here again if we come back to the island - thanks for the great experience!

For a property that can sleep up to 5 people, one toilet is a bit challenging. No bath soap was not available. There was ample dish soap and hand soap. Rooms were a bit stuffy so glad there were room fans. Location was good for walking to downtown places. Property clean and in a safe location. Security good. TV remote needed new batteries. There are stairs to climb. Conveinence store 500 feet away. Good restaurants right on same street all in walking distance. Cynthia's is a must for breakfast.

Great Visit

  • 5 of 5

This was a quaint place to stay for 2 nights. Just the right amount of walking opportunities in Friday Harbor. Place was clean and comfortable but it was Lynn's hospitality that helped make us feel so at home. Sort of crazy to feel like your hostess is your neighbor even though you have never met.

I would recommend working with Lynn on any rentals. She will make sure you are happy too.

From the Owner

This is the first secure 2nd floor Loft type apartments built in Friday Harbor. They were designed to creatively utilize the unused open space of the upstairs of the Ace Hardware building. The original tenant of Unit D, was a world class faux artist and this Loft was her portfolio. Plus, this unit has a wonderful balcony for viewing the water, watching the activity of downtown and the farmers market.

San Juan Island is the best area to actually see Orca whales in the wild easily during the summer months. Fall and Spring it is a birders paradise with many species passing through en route to their winter home or summer breeding grounds. Many birds reside here in the winter, most beautiful are the Trumpeter Swans and the Great Blue Heron, plus the largest population of Bald Eagles outside of Alaska, reside in the San Juan Islands. We have 3 National Parks on our small beautiful island so there are a lot of opportunities for hiking on the well marked trails.
