About this property

Enticing Waterfront Cottage!

Adults-only cottage in Friday Harbor
Sawmill Creek Cottage (SJ County permit # 99SJ50) offers secluded peace for your island getaway. Comfortable and private, it is just a one mile from Friday Harbor. The 400 sq. ft. cottage is the original caretaker's cottage from the '50's. It is small but has been brought into the modern world with renovated bathroom, separate bedroom with queen bed, and full kitchen. The kitchen has a quartz counters and new appliances, including washer/dryer. The American Leather sleeper sofa in living area offers as comfortable a night's sleep as we could find in sleeper sofa options. The cottage sits on a shared low bank beach on a small salt water cove known as Jackson's Lagoon. There is a pond and stream on one side, which provides privacy and acts as a natural boundary. You will share the property with blue herons, kingfishers, eagles, and the occasional deer or fox, and watch the moon rise bigger than life over the North Bay at dusk. Enjoy our plush queen, all natural, latex, soy, and bamboo bed. New washer/dryer, new appliances. The secluded yard offers a patio table and barbecue. Blackberry pies are there for the picking in early autumn. In the quiet winter months, create a second honeymoon or holiday turkey memories in this snug warm cottage.

5/5 Excellent

    wonderful getaway spot!

    Came here for a weekend getaway with a friend. First time to Friday Harbor and it was near perfect. A short walk to town, beautiful place with plenty of necessities to make it cozy and relaxed. Only desire is for more fire wood and directions on building a fire in the oblong wood stove. Will definitely stay here again!

    5/5 Excellent

      Beautiful quiet retreat on San Juan Island

      The home makes the most effective use of the size. It is a very quiet location which seems remote but in reality is just a mile from the center of Friday Harbor. This is convenient to the part of San Juan Island you want to spend the bulk of your stay. We stayed 3 nights and hope to come back.

      4/5 Good

        20th Anniversary & Honeymoon trip

        We couldn't have picked a more perfect place than Sawmill Creek Cottage! Perfect location for easy Friday Harbor Access and the ferry! Property owner went above and beyond to be sure our stay was a pleasant one! Thanks Pheobe! Was a trip that will not be soon forgotten! Hope to come back someday!!!!

        5/5 Excellent

          Best ever

          This cabin was perfect for our three night stay. The owners could not have been nicer and more accessible.

          5/5 Excellent

            Peaceful and comfortable

            This is a great place, close to Friday Harbor, but in a quiet rural setting. It is extra clean and well supplied. I'd definitely stay here again.
