About this property

Charming 4 br Gated Waterfront Estate on Acreage With Private Beach and Buoy

Adults-only vacation home with outdoor tennis court and spa tub
Private beach , hot tub, view of Mount Baker and Griffin Bay, across the street from Golf and Tennis, and even a mooring buoy! Before San Juan Island was discovered as a travel destination, Friday Harbor was a cluster of modest homes on a few central streets. When the commercial area began to expand, two historic homes were moved south of town onto this beautiful stretch of Griffin Bay waterfront. Creatively connected by a new central living space, these historic structures now form the opposing wings of a delightful island residence. The property is located behind a gated entry, so it"s extremely private, however the golf club and tennis courts (open to the public and you can use our rackets) are just across the road, and town amenities are just 3 miles away. The landscape surrounding the home is simply gorgeous, offering 8 sunny acres of garden, grassy clearings with a badminton and croquet set you can use, ponds to explore, and a hot tub under a starlit sky. Then there is the beach! Just wander down the pathway at the shoreline to find your own sheltered pebbled cove, complete with driftwood logs. tide pools, and a dead ahead view of Mount Baker. This is where you will likely spend many hours in quiet contemplation and enjoying picnics.This beautiful waterfront is also a great spot for launching kayaks and there is even a buoy for your use. With a boat launch a few miles away, its easy to either bring your boat or rent one from town for exploring or crabbing. Those seeking to relive carefree childhood summers will love this vacation home. The older sections of the residence create a sensation of remembrance. One wing rambles through a small office into a master bedroom with a king size bed, en-suite bathroom, and large walk-in closet. Above the office is a semi-open loft with two twin beds where children and teens can snuggle up. NOTE THERE ARE LOW CEILINGS AND NON-CONFORMING STAIRS AND RAILINGS IN THIS AREA. The kitchen with breakfast nook, sitting area, 1/2 bath and laundry room are on the main level of the second wing. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms, one with a queen bed plus futon, and the second one with a double bed and one twin bed. A second bathroom with tub/shower is also on the upper level. The two older wings are separated by the living and formal dining room. The waterside windows frame incredible views of the bay, islands, gorgeous sunrises, and Mount Baker. Stretching across the entire front and side of the home is an inviting deck containing lounge and dining furniture, and a propane barbecue. The home is comfortable, attractive, and unpretentious. The atmosphere is a small step back in time, a place that children of all ages will cherish as they run barefoot in the yard, wade at the shore,play games and laugh. This is truly one of the premier properties on San Juan Island. Come make your own island memories at Griffin Bay Beach: we expect you will join the many that return every year. PLEASE BE ADVISED.

5/5 Excellent

    Great little getaway!

    Quiet location offering a good amount of privacy. Access was super easy and the house is only 10 mins from the ferry dock. The private beach was a great little area for the kids to play around in (with easy access). Supplies were ample and the house was spotless on check in. Plenty of room for our entire group. We'll definitely be renting this property again!

      Wonderful little cabin

      The layout of the cabin was a bit odd and the lighting left something to be desired but otherwise the property was great. The view was fantastic, the place fully stocked with dishes, sheets and towels, and the proximity to town was fantastic. Would definitely stay again. Fit perfect for our group of 8. Thanks for the lovely stay!

        Historic coastal retreat

        We had an awesome time at this super property on Griffin Bay on San Juan Island. It was close enough to town to make shopping easy but felt like a nature lovers retreat. We thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities of this home from a few brave dips in the cove to badminton and bocce ball and some relaxing soaks in the hot tub. It was a great home base for bike rides, runs and hikes on the Island and after some cloudy drizzly weather were treated to a beautiful sunset and sunrise over the bay and a peak at Mt Baker. It was a perfect fit for our extended family of young adults to seniors. The well stocked kitchen and complete set of sharp knives and spices was especially appreciated as we are a family that loves to cook and eat together. The local wild blackberries and pears from a tree on the property made for a couple yummy dessert treats and salads. We highly recommends this property for a memorable stay on San Juan Island!

          Great winter getaway

          Great location, close to Friday harbor but far enough to relax. Hot tub was the icing on the cake.
