Dramatic Watefront Cottage, Incredible Location. Writer's Retreat #391

Located in: Friday Harbor

One stay in Writer’s Retreat almost always leads to another. Year after year, guests reserve "their" customary week in this San Juan Island vacation home because it is simply exceptional in every way.

Although there are wonderful views to be enjoyed throughout the Islands, Writer’s Retreat has an outlook towards one of the most spectacular vistas in the Northwest. Built right on the bluff overlooking the San Juan de Fuca Straits, the home is within one of the most frequently photographed panoramas of ocean, mountain, and shoreline on San Juan Island. Whether you are soaking in the hot tub on the deck or waking up in the plush king-size bed in the open loft, the dramatic scenery of rocky cliffs, surging sea, and the snow-capped Olympic mountain range surrounds you. Beautiful sandy beaches, including those of neighboring American Camp National Park are just down the road.

Oh, then there are the passing whales…
No promises, but you are quite likely to have a front-row seat for viewing these magnificent marine mammals just being themselves in the wild right in front of the home! Dolphins and resident eagles also frequent the shoreline areas.

Guests are initially drawn to Writer’s Retreat by the romance of the natural setting, but the comfort and welcoming touches offered by the homeowners make them eager to return. The home is tastefully furnished and impeccably maintained, with breakfast nibbles, fresh flowers, and bottled water thoughtfully provided as well. You’ll find the kitchen, dining area, and living room with TV/DVD/music, a book-filled alcove (no surprise, considering the name of the home) and a queen size bed and a bathroom with shower on the main level. In an open loft upstairs there is a plush king-size bed, second TV, and second bath with dual painted vanities and shower. Outside, there’s a deluxe BBQ, a bubbling hot tub facing the water, a hammock, and seating alcoves near the edge of the bluff.
