Overview

About the property

A uniquely private five-acre property close to town

Our 2000+ sq. ft. home features pastoral views from most windows. In addition to our domestic animals there are several wild ones that seem to consider this place their home.

The house features a kitchen and den that open to an outside deck for dining or just hanging out. The separate living room is a good place for reading a book or playing games. The dining room is where everyone gathers at once.

Our home has sleeping accommodations for up to six adults. There is an upstairs master bedroom with fireplace and private bath. Across the hallway is a second bedroom and another full bath. Both rooms feature Queen beds. Downstairs is a smaller bedroom with twin beds, which can be made into a double on request. And a powder room.

You will find soap, lotion, shampoo, conditioner and a hair dryer in each bath.

We provide some basic kitchen items - spices, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, etc. so you don’t have to buy them.

There is a gas outdoor grill and a fire pit.

Maybe you have been working hard and want to relax, read a book, nap in the pond-side hammock or just enjoy the quiet beauty. Or perhaps you are traveling with family and the kids want to get their hands dirty in the barn or the garden. We will gladly accept an offer of help.

So, about the quiet beauty. Our views are pastoral. The perimeter is mostly surrounded by old-growth trees and home to many species of birds. Deer often graze alongside our horses. The only human sounds you’ll hear will likely be yours.

Our family members are horses and dogs and cats.

Your pet is welcome with prior arrangement. Please note that your dog must be kept on a leash and never left alone in the house for more time than it takes to have a meal out. We have a dog bed so you won't need to bring one.

If you are traveling with a toddler, we have a Pack N Play and a high chair for your little one.

When the hens are in the mood for laying, fresh eggs will be available for your breakfast. You are encouraged to help yourself to our delicious organic salad greens from the garden.

We offer Wi-fi, many DVD movies and Netflix instant download should you have time for entertainment. And Pandora Radio for music.

Our home isn't fancy - just cozy and comfortable like a farm house should be.

Guests are welcome to walk anywhere on the property but must be accompanied by the manager when near the horses and barn. Swimming in the pond is prohibited. There is a hammock for two wanting of occupants next to Rowdy's Pond.

Our neighborhood is close to town yet private and quiet. Walking about is a favorite past time of friends and guests. Any area past the obvious perimeter fencing is not part of the farm. We ask that when walking you sty on the easement drive-way or public roads.

We have some old bicycles to offer if you like to noodle around that way.

Relaxing, peaceful and wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

Claudia was excellent from day 1! She was helpful, caring and honest. We were so happy to arrive and the house was incredible! Room for all of us, and the grounds were wonderful! Waking up each morning to wonderful nature sounds and falling asleep to calm and quiet! There is NOTHING about this house that could disappoint! If you're looking for a place to stay on San Juan Island.. this is it! Easy access to Friday Harbor (about a mile) and great location to be in the mix of everything but to also be away from it all! Thanks Claudia and Mike!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect getaway for our family of 5! Cynthia was an amazing host and showed my kids around the farm. They loved interacting with the horses, chickens, dogs and cats. She made my kids feel so special. The house was cozy and perfect. The fact that the bathrooms and kitchen are stocked with basic necessities makes it so easy. We are already planning our next getaway to the farm!

The house and surrounding property offered us great comfort and tranquility.

  • 5 of 5

Claudia and Mike were such wonderful hosts, answering questions, making sure we had what we needed in and outside the house, and sharing information about life on the island. The house was spacious yet cozy and well equipped and clean. We felt as if it were our own home. And the expansive property, surrounded by grassy fields (with two beautiful horses) and woods (with many deer) gave us blissful peace and quiet. I came here with a friend and now want to come back with my daughter and her family. Thank you Claudia and Mike.

  • 5 of 5

The title says it all. This is the 3. year we've returned to Claudia's "Over the Hill" farm; very bucolic with horses and dogs. Much to be recommended for writing a book.

Lovely vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved the idyllic setting of Over The Hill Farm. The kitchen was fully stocked, towels fluffy; comfy beds & welcoming owners. Our two littles loved swinging in the hammock, watching the horses & loving on the dogs & cat. What a great place! We hope to come back one day.

A home away from home in the San Juans!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay at the farm and we could not wait to arrive this summer! Everything was ready when we arrived and our hosts were welcoming and made every effort to make our stay special! This has truly become a special place full of memories for our family! We cannot wait to come back!
