About The Owner
My husband and I grew up on the Oregon Coast and developed strong ties to small communities and the Pacific Ocean. During college we spent our summers working on San Juan Island and soon realized this was a place of unique beauty that kept calling us back every year. Fortunately our lively-hoods took us in the direction of the arts, nature & wildlife, a perfect combination that allowed us to make this special island our home.
The Owner purchased this house in 2002
Why The Owner chose Roche Harbor
Our property is a true paradise with privacy and spaciousness. At any given time a variety of wildlife can be spotted either walking by or flying above. Glimpses of Westcott Bay are just in the distance with fresh seafood to suit a King. The quaint & historic seaside village of Roche Harbor Resort backs our property offering a multitude of activities, restaurants and shopping.
What makes this house unique
Whether you just need a true escape or plan special family get togethers, Quarry Point Retreat is a perfect destination.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We recently spent a week in mid-September with our son, daughter-in-law and their 3 year old and couldn't have imagined a nicer place to be for a lazy vacation. The private vacation home is situated with water views on three sides with a very sizable yard for playing games with our grandson or just watching the ever-present deer. The home has a open layout that was great for those cooking and those just keeping the cooks company, but quite quiet for late sleepers. The owners have thought of just everything that visitors might need from a closet full of board games to a rice steamer (read over what is listed in the vacation home...all is really there). And the owners greeted us just after arrival with fresh coffee beans and fruit. We spent lots of time on the deck that has lounging furniture, table and chairs and a gas grill. This rental is in Roche Harbor which has good dining and some shopping, but only 15 minutes from Friday Harbor where the ferry lands. We were able to kayak easily from Roche Harbor and saw many seals in the fairly calm waters. Although the island isn't too hilly for biking, the roads are narrow. It's better to take the ferry with bikes to Orcas Island for a day of cycling. But, there are more things to do on San Juan Island than you can pack in in one week anyway. We enjoyed the Alpaca Farm and watching the Orca Whales off Lime Kiln Park.
