Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

Come enjoy a relaxing retreat set in a beautiful garden conveniently located halfway between Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor.

Foxglove cottage is a charming cottage surrounded by a lovely garden situated on 20 acres of majestic fir and cedar forest.There is a small swimming pond with a dock and an old tennis court.The house is completely remodeled and almost brand new. There are slate floors in the kitchen, dining room and entry way and bamboo floors thru out the rest of the house. The original structure was built with beach logs and field stones and lots of creativity . This is truly a craftsman's creation.

The master bedroom is large and spacious with a small deck. The guest bedroom feels like a tree house. The upstairs bathroom has slate floors, a stone sink , tile shower and small Jacuzzi tub. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and flat screen HDTV. The guest bedroom also has a queen size bed. Both bedrooms have lots of windows viewing the surrounding garden.

The living room has a double door onto a small patio overlooking the pond. There is a large flat screen T.V. and DVD player. The house has access to Dish television.

The kitchen is completely equipped for you to do your own meals . There is a large window seat for lounging or sleeping an extra guest. Right outside the kitchen is a patio with table and chairs for outside dining.

The owners live on the property and will be available for any questions you may have. Interaction can be as much or as little as you like. Fresh fruit and veggies will often be available from the garden. Just ask me what might be ripe for the picking. The property is deer fenced so we ask our guests to please remember to close the gates. It is truly amazing how much one deer can eat in an evening stroll thru the garden.

We have an old sheltie who may wander down for a visit. He is a little nervous and may bark but if you ignore him he will go away. He does not bite and actually won't get to close.

There are many wonderful and exciting places to visit on San Juan Island. There are numerous beaches and parks close by. You can hike , bike, swim, whale watch, kayak, or just relax. It is truly a vacationers paradise.

Wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this cottage (house) justice. The interior is lovely with everything you need (we stayed 3 days) and the grounds are fabulous. There are two patios and we watched a couple river otters in the swimming pond hunt bullfrogs a couple days. The gardens, both flowers and edibles, attract quite a few birds including a Western tanager family. The area is very quiet and the beds are super comfortable. The cottage and grounds made for a wonderful Friday Harbor getaway.

Serenity

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful unique house with pretty gardens surrounding it. We loved our stay. Beds were comfy, house was very clean and decorated very cute. I would of given this house a 5 star if it would of had a good Wifi connection. It's really sketchy on and off but mostly off. The kitchen could use some new pots, pans and sharp knives but its ok equipped. We had a slight problem with little tiny ants also but thats probably another normal thing with so many plants against the house. All in all we liked it.

Magical

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 nights at this beautiful Foxglove Cottage and it was simply magical. The accommodations are top notch and the gardens are beyond. We loved every minute on island and will be back to definitely stay here again as soon as we can. My mom visiting from Chicago was in awe of your talents with both garden spade and paintbrush! What a fun spot. - Toddy & Chris

Restful, Relaxing Garden of Delight!

  • 5 of 5

Two couples spent three nights in this lovely home which served us perfectly. The bedrooms were spacious with beds and bedding very comfortable and luxurious even. The whirlpool tub was perfect after 5 night camping in Alaska and the gardens invited us to relax surrounded by colorful nature. The bullfrogs were a sound we weren't used to... Loved it! The kitchen was just right for making a couple of nice meals and our hostess was available if we had any questions. It is off the beaten path a bit, which we loved, so you will want a car for exploration of the island. I'd go again in a heartbeat.

Perfect few nights

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is in a great location. About 10 min from town and central on the island. Very clean, well maintained, quiet, and fantastic yard. We had two kids with us and they liked their treehouse styled room very much, the books in the house, and the games available to play.

Beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with all the essentials.
