San Juan Island is the best area to actually see Orca whales in the wild easily during the summer months. Fall and Spring it is a birders paradise with many species passing through en route to their winter home or summer breeding grounds. Many birds reside here in the winter, most beautiful are the Trumpeter Swans and the Great Blue Heron, plus the largest population of Bald Eagles outside of Alaska, reside in the San Juan Islands. We have 3 National Parks on our small beautiful island so there are a lot of opportunities for hiking on the well marked trails.

All 5 Suites at Acanthus have a private access from the entry hall just inside the front door. Interaction with Guests Guests are left completely on their own. I am available at any time to answer questions and make a great selection of info about the island available in each suite. The Neighborhood Acanthus Suites is in the old historic Argyle neighborhood. There are several restored historic homes both next door and across the street. It is a very easy walk to town. There is a bus system to the other side of the island, bikes, electric bikes, mopeds and cars to rent. Plus many of the whale watch vessels and kayak operators depart from right from the Port of Friday Harbor only 3 blocks away. Our island has so much to offer!! We have year around resident Orca whales to see, wonderful kayaking along our shores, the largest number of nesting bald Eagle in the continental USA, 2 large National parks with numerous hiking trail.
