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.

A Magical Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with Foxglove Cottage! It is such a special structure and we enjoyed hearing Becky tell of the history and growth from its original life as a barn. The old beams in all the rooms gave the place a most unusual appeal. All of the artwork (original paintings by the owner) was so interesting and we felt fortunate to be able to reside there, if only for a few days.

We found the cottage to be more attractive than even the photos show on the VRBO website. We were there in mid-November and enjoyed all the fall color and the nearby fruit trees, especially the bountiful crabapple right by the kitchen door but could imagine the wonders of the gardens and pond during the warmer months. The kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked with supplies and the beds were comfortable. This is definitely a place worth visiting and revisiting.

This is a beautifull island cottage complete with gardens, pond, birds and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

This custom cottage is full of the owners original artworks making this an exquisite retreat. The 2 bedrooms are beautiful and so restful. We sat outside each night watching the stars and bats. We would go back in a heartbeat. It is in a perfect location to access all parts of the island.

Beautiful house and garden you won't soon forget!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Foxglove Cottage for 5 nights in September 2017. We immediately fell in love with the artistic design, colors, decor and garden. Becky welcomed us shortly after we arrived. She was so friendly and helped us settle right in.

Outside, we loved exploring all the flowers, trees, sitting areas and the pond. Inside, we felt right at home. We enjoyed reading in the window seat with it's comfy pillows and relaxing in the living room area with it's cozy furniture and gas stove. The kitchen was spacious and well appointed. Becky had left us some apples from her garden in the fridge and they were delicious. Upstairs were 2 incredibly comfortable bedrooms and a full bathroom with a shower and separate jetted tub. We very much appreciated the full size washer and dryer neatly tucked under the stairs and hidden by two doors.

We chose this place for it's location and peaceful setting. We were a short drive from Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor. When we returned to the cottage after an adventurous day, we were surrounded by the peace and tranquility of this lovely place. We absolutely recommend this wonderful retreat!

Beautiful home, beautiful grounds

  • 5 of 5

It's not always -- or even often -- that a rental exceeds your expectations. This lovely, whimsical house in the middle of San Juan Island exceeded our every expectation. It's an old structure that has been renovated with skill and creativity, with interesting details (like driftwood rafters). It's full of fine finishes -- beautiful fabrics, beautiful paintings, good furniture, and interesting nick nacks that weren't overbearing. The house is in the middle of a 40-year-old garden of flowers, vegetables and mature fruit trees. There's a pond -- I stretched on the dock in the early mornings. It's quiet and peaceful and beautiful. The owners live up the hill and we met Becky briefly when she showed us around. She was kind and welcoming, and I'm sure she would have been responsive if we'd needed anything, but she didn't impose on our family in any way. The bedrooms were very, very tasteful with comfortable beds and windows that opened wide for the cool summer night air. An excellent jacuzzi tub that will influence our renovation plans for our own house. We loved our visit -- can you tell?!
