About this property

Over THE Hill Farm - A Vacation OUT OF THE Ordinary

Romantic farm stay in Friday Harbor with outdoor tennis court
Our 2000+ sq. ft. home features pastoral views from most windows. In addition to our domestic animals there are several wild ones that seem to consider this place their home. The house features a kitchen and den that open to an outside deck for dining or just hanging out. The separate living room is a good place for reading a book or playing games. The dining room is where everyone gathers at once. Our home has sleeping accommodations for up to six adults. There is an upstairs master bedroom with fireplace and private bath. Across the hallway is a second bedroom and another full bath. Both rooms feature Queen beds. Downstairs is a powder room and a smaller bedroom with twin beds, which can be made into a double on request. Please let us know on booking if you wish that option. You will find soap, lotion, shampoo, conditioner and a hair dryer in each bath. We provide some basic kitchen items - spices, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, etc. so you don’t have to buy them. There is a gas outdoor grill. And a metal fire pit on the front patio. No other fires are permitted on the premises. Maybe you have been working hard and want to relax, read a book, nap in the pond-side hammock or just enjoy the quiet beauty. Or perhaps you are traveling with family and the kids want to get their hands dirty in the barn or the garden. We will gladly accept an offer of help. So, about the quiet beauty. Our views are pastoral. The perimeter is mostly surrounded by old-growth trees and home to many species of birds. Deer often graze alongside our horses. The only human sounds you’ll hear will likely be yours. Our family members are horses and dogs and cats. Your pet is welcome with prior arrangement. Please note that your dog must be kept on a leash and never left alone in the house for more time than it takes to have a meal out. We have a dog bed so you won't need to bring one. If you are traveling with a toddler, we have a Pack N Play and a high chair for your little one. When the hens are in the mood for laying, fresh eggs will be available for your breakfast. You are encouraged to help yourself to our delicious organic salad greens from the garden. We offer Wi-fi, many DVD movies and Netflix instant download should you have time for entertainment. And Pandora Radio for music. Our home isn't fancy - just cozy and comfortable like a farm house should be. We ask that you conserve water when possible. Guests are welcome to walk anywhere on the property but must be accompanied by the manager when near the horses and barn. Swimming in the pond is prohibited. There is a hammock for two wanting of occupants next to Rowdy's Pond. Our neighborhood is close to town yet private and quiet. Walking about is a favorite past time of friends and guests. Any area past the obvious perimeter fencing is not part of the farm. We ask that when walking you stay on the easement drive-way or public roads. We have some old bicycles to offer if you like to noodle around that way. If you have infant children, we have a Pack and Play and a highchair for your use. ARE YOU TRAVELING BY FERRY?

5/5 Excellent

    Great spot!

    Fantastic place to stay on the islands. So close to town and yet still so secluded. The stocked kitchen was wonderful as well as the fresh garden produce. Claudia was an amazing host. Thank you so much.

    5/5 Excellent

      The house and surrounding property offered us great comfort and tranquility.

      Claudia and Mike were such wonderful hosts, answering questions, making sure we had what we needed in and outside the house, and sharing information about life on the island. The house was spacious yet cozy and well equipped and clean. We felt as if it were our own home. And the expansive property, surrounded by grassy fields (with two beautiful horses) and woods (with many deer) gave us blissful peace and quiet. I came here with a friend and now want to come back with my daughter and her family. Thank you Claudia and Mike.

      5/5 Excellent

        Two weeks very relaxin stay off the grid (no cell phone byt great WiFI) in a beautiful surrounding

        The title says it all. This is the 3. year we've returned to Claudia's "Over the Hill" farm; very bucolic with horses and dogs. Much to be recommended for writing a book.

        5/5 Excellent

          Lovely vacation!

          Our family of four loved the idyllic setting of Over The Hill Farm. The kitchen was fully stocked, towels fluffy; comfy beds & welcoming owners. Our two littles loved swinging in the hammock, watching the horses & loving on the dogs & cat. What a great place! We hope to come back one day.

          5/5 Excellent

            A home away from home in the San Juans!

            This was our second time to stay at the farm and we could not wait to arrive this summer! Everything was ready when we arrived and our hosts were welcoming and made every effort to make our stay special! This has truly become a special place full of memories for our family! We cannot wait to come back!
