Why Bette Cantrell chose Friday Harbor

I bought my home in 2002 from a local builder on the island. What attracted me to this home was it's location near town, it's casual open style and beautiful south west water views. It has a reverse floor plan with living room, dining and kitchen up stairs to take advantage of the water views.

What makes this house unique

I enjoy sitting on my deck watching the water change colors as the sun sets and occasional dear or fox crossing the property. It's an area where you can sit back and enjoy the quiet beauty of island living with a glass of wine overlooking Griffin Bay, Dinner Island, Lopez Island and beyond to the Olympic Mountains or you can participate in the many activities that our island has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bette, you have a wonderful place here. We have enjoyed our stay so much. And - your hospitality is pervasive, even when you are not here. That's quite an accomplishment!

Again thank you for creating a perfect retreat. Blessings!

Beautiful, very clean and modern

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was better then we expected, the pictures do not do this beautiful vacation home justice... Short distance from the Ferry and town. Extra clean and comfortable. This dream getaway is fully stocked with everything you will need to cook a home meal or enjoy family time playing games, watching a great selection of videos, books and much more .. The view is breathtaking !! We are definitely coming back next year... Bette the owner was wonderful and very accommodating.. First class vacation rental !!!!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Oh my, when I first saw this house's pictures on VRBO they looked so good I thought I might have been in for a bit of letdown when when got there. Not so at all, the house was wonderful with very nice furnishings, only a couple of minutes from Friday Harbor, and a nice view. We plan on coming back again next year and will definitely want to stay there again. Bette even had a nice bottle of wine waiting for us when we got there.

Immaculate and comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our time here. It is in the perfect location close to town but enough outside that it is very peaceful. The home itself is immaculate and has everything you need or want while you are staying there. The kitchen is incredible with all kinds of serving and glassware. We ended up cooking two of our three nights, enjoying the gorgeous view and the lovely deck. Bette is a gracious host, greeting us personally and ensuring the house was filled with information about the island and activities. Thank you!
