Guestbook comments from the manager

This house is amazing. There is just so much you can do here and it feels like your home away from home.This is my first time to the San Juan Islands and my uncles 4th time with his puppy. I really needed this and this place really heals broken hearts and mends how you feel. The views from my room are awesome! I always open both shades to get the full effect. I can't speak any higher of this house. Jones's you have a goldmine. Thank you for giving us and those before and after us a slice of heaven. If you want to see something amazing, hike mount grant. I will be back.

Beautiful Home with Art in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, bright, elegant in simplicity home with surprise native american art in every room. Well supplied kitchen with everything in it's marked place. We had a day of rain and drizzle and not a chance to enjoy the firepit and picnic bayside but second day of sunshine we saw a whale at Lime Kiln Light House and a seal too. Ours was a reunion and birthday for six from Florida, Lake Stevens, and Victoria. We slept well, ate more than well and kept cozy and comfortable around the woodstove! Two days is not long enough!

Beautiful, comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was lovely! Some friends and I (4 adults, 1 baby, 1 dog) stayed on a cold, rainy day in January and it was perfect. The kitchen is AMAZINGLY stocked with cookware/serveware, the fireplace had kindling in it, and being on the water is peaceful and beautiful. We highly recommend this place, any time of year!

Welcome to Paradise ! From lush greenery on hiking trails to incredible wildlife in marine waters, the San Juans continue to make national lists of the best vacation spots. Go fishing,boating, kayaking, golfing and whale watching. Browse the variety of fun shops and art galleries. Enjoy local eateries, which is often based on island-grown ingredients. There are about 80 working farms and many offer tours. You can also find the fruits of their labors at a Farmers Market.

San Juan Island square mileage is 55.3 - population is around 7000.

Friday Harbor is the point for almost any San Juan Island Adventure. Reachable only by Ferry or Plane. Friday Harbor is the Island's commercial core and its cultural epicenter. It is the hub of the Whale Watch fleet as we as home to an airport.

Just a small taste of what the Island has to offer is -

2 National Parks and 1 State Park with county parks as well. The hiking and the views are a dream. Make sure to bring your camera and be ready to take multiple pictures of landscape and wildlife.

If peace and quiet is what you are looking for this is the place !

Jones' Home Away from Home is the PERFECT place for whatever your heart desires.
