About this property

Lovely Cottage Offering Style, Sophistication, Comfort and Tranquility

Adults-only cottage in Friday Harbor
Welcome to Cottage on Bison Pond, located only 3 1/2 miles from the picturesque town of Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. The cottage, set amongst beautiful confers and deciduous trees & overlooking Bison Pond, a natural habitat for birds, herons, deer (and even foxes, raccoons & eagles have been sited occasionally), has been completely remodeled and the location of our cottage is perfect for getting to and from town as well as driving to some of the most gorgeous destinations on the south side of the island. We are located only approximately 8 minutes to and from the heart of Friday Harbor, so really close to get to shopping and restaurants, and only 3 miles south to gorgeous walking beaches and trails along "South Beach" , "American Camp" and Mt. Finlaysen, some of the most explored destinations on the island. There is also a very scenic walking trail leading to "American Camp" directly from our property for those of you who love to commune with nature by foot. And for you golf addicts, the deck on the cottage looks directly onto San Juan Valley Golf Course which may cause you to be lured to play a round of golf during your vacation or at least want to take a leisurely walk around the links which many of our residents routinely do. And alternatively, for those who want to just hunker down and relax, you can simply nestle into our cottage deck or on the garden furniture facing our Pond and do absolutely nothing while experiencing the quiet and tranquility of our property. The cottage downstairs bedroom has a queen bed, clothes closet, storage space for luggage and good reading lamps on each side of the bed. It has an attached bathroom with luxurious absorbent towels and complimentary soaps and shampoos. The upstairs living room and utility kitchen has wonderful natural light coming through lots of windows and French doors leading on to two separate decks, both of which have patio furniture upon which to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine, while gazing on the rising sun or setting sunsets. The kitchen is equipped with a convection oven, microwave and toaster oven (however no stove) and plenty of dishes, silverware, serving utensils, a French press coffee maker, electric water heater and blender as well as glassware, napkins, salt, pepper, sugar, tea, coffee and bottled waters. The living room also has really comfy sofa and chair, reading lights and a Wall TV with cable channels. We think we've thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and we do hope we will meet all of your with every amenity we could think of, as described below and in our amenity list, to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Guest accommodations at this cottage offer coffee/tea makers and hair dryers. Rooms open to furnished balconies or patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, microwaves, separate dining areas, and cookware/dishes/utensils.

5/5 Excellent

    Roomy and Relaxing.

    This cute cottage was perfect for our visit, close to town, clean, light, bright. After a day of sightseeing we could come home, spread out and relax. So much more comfortable then a hotel room.

    4/5 Good

      Great spot

      Everything worked perfectly, but it would have been nice to actually meet the owner, who seemed really nice and was very responsive.

      5/5 Excellent

        An excellent choice!

        We enjoyed our stay at the cottage on Bison Pond. Thanks to the great communication with Aylene, it was easy to find and not far from town. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by deer and birds. The cottage was so clean and well furnished. It had everything we needed for our five-day stay. The dining recommendations from Aylene and Mark were spot on and much appreciated. We would highly recommend staying here. We hope to return in the future.

        5/5 Excellent

          Lovely Weekend Getaway

          This delightful and charming place for two was just a few miles away from both town, and the wedding we attended during our stay. We appreciated being greeting upon our arrival, and the tour of the listing. The bed is truly comfortable and the supplied coffee is great. Not really terrific views of either the pond nor the golf course, but a bucolic and quiet peace is throughout. The kitchen is tiny but well stocked, with every appliance necessary for our 2 night stay. The owners provide much privacy and it felt like a perfect weekend getaway!

          4/5 Good

            A really beautiful, private, quiet retreat.

            We will definitely come back to the Bison Cottage when we visit San Juan Island in the future. It was tastefully furnished with a soothing, tasteful decor. Has all the necessities for a stay except an actual cooktop. The only drawback was a little delay in communication with the host and we never did get a key/keycode to the front door which was open when we arrived.. However, it's so private and secluded we didn't worry about leaving it unlocked!
