Overview

Friday Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

This recently reconstructed vacation home on San Juan Island is a jewel! Set within five acres at the end of a sun-dappled lane, and perched right at the water's edge, Panorama Lodge enjoys an incomparable 180 degree vista of sea, sky, and mountains. Majestic Mt. Baker looms to the east, Orcas Island is just across the channel, there's a backdrop of snow-capped Canadian Cascades, and resident bald eagles swoop directly overhead. Just offshore, luxury yachts, sailboats, ferries, seals, and even the occasional pod of Orca whales pass through vast deep blue waters in front of you. Photographs cannot capture this expansive setting, but guests in Panorama Lodge will feel they are living in a postcard!

When you relax or dine on the multi-level decks that extend across the entire waterside of the home, you'll be part of this spectacular scenery. The view remains a focal point when indoors as well, as one's eye is drawn outward through an entire wall of windows in the living & dining areas.

The interior of the home is sophisticated, customized with details reminiscent of a European chalet. The woodwork gleams, furnishings are stylish and solid, elegant accents include deluxe fixtures, stone floors, countertops & beautifully tiled bathrooms. A wonderful open kitchen, featuring a large prep island with counter seating, is central to the main level. New stainless steel appliances, including a six-burner stainless steel range and 36” oven, make cooking a very pleasant experience! Just past the dining area and down several steps you'll find a cozy living room with propane fireplace and HDTV.

Offering three bedrooms and three baths, Panorama Lodge will appeal to families, couples, or to anyone seeking a private, upscale getaway. One bedroom is located off the living room and features generous closets, a queen size bed, and private bath with walk-in shower lined with mosaic tile. The upper level is an open loft containing a second queen size bed. (This romantic bedroom overlooks the kitchen and enjoys waterviews from above.) The loft area is complimented with a balcony, large walk-in closet, and fabulous en-suite bathroom with dual vanities, glass block shower, and jetted tub. A third bedroom containing two twin beds is located on the entry level with a bathroom including a tub/shower, and the washer/dryer are conveniently located off an adjacent hallway.

Due to the sheer bluff and deep water proximity, children under ten years of age are not accepted in this home.

Panorama Lodge offers vacation visitors an extremely comfortable home in a very private setting landscaped by nature. The property is located in a desirable neighborhood on the northwest side of the Island, about a ten minute drive from Roche Harbor and a fifteen minute drive from Friday Harbor.

Our home is cared for by a local property manager who is on call should you need help. They will take care of making your reservation too!

Beautiful setting and views. Water supply issues need to be fixed

The home is nicely equipped and the views of the Sound are amazing. We were told that due to a lack of rain recently, that we shouldn't drink the water, use the laundry or the jacuzzi tub in the MBR. Indeed the water would run out and come back if left alone for a few hours. But the water was smelly and there was a bad smell in the area if the well outside which prevented opening certain windows. Other houses in the area, according to a neighbor, were not so affected. I didn't request a refund for the degraded living conditions but I think it would have been appropriate. The owner should install a cistern to deal with this problem. It is difficult to rate a property negatively in such a beautiful setting however I reduce the stars for this property for that reason. Also there were coffee cups with coffee "line" un cleaned in the cupboard and towels in the downstairs bedroom that were dirty when we arrived.

Manager responded on 8/14/2014:

Although we were experiencing drought conditions it was subsequently discovered that the culprit responsible for the extreme water shortage in this home was a well blockage. We are very, very sorry that these stringent restrictions on water consumption were necessary during your stay and will be contacting you to make amends. The well is now functioning normally and the water supply is plentiful.

Reviewer Comments:

The Panorama lodge was the perfect place for my out of town family to gather for a nephew's wedding event. The home has a great layout, a fantast view and wonderful wooded privacy. The only issue was that we had very limited water. Showers were basically impossible! Getting ready for the wedding was a challenge, but after that we embraced our island stink! Felt more like glamping in the end.

Manager responded on 8/14/2014:

We are SOOO sorry about the limited supply of water. Our summer drought conditions were compounded by a well blockage that was only discovered after your stay. Future guests may be confident that the water supply is now very adequate!

We loved this home. It was everything the photos showed! The view is second to none. On a daily basis we saw: seals, otters, harbor porpoises, eagles and more while enjoying the views of the islands, Mt. Baker, ferries and beautiful sunrises. You do have to be comfortable with no window coverings (even the bathrooms). The master room bed has steps to get up, which may be difficult for some. The house is extremely well equipped for a rental and very clean. Construction is solid with amazing design. We could not get the wifi to work but we didn't miss it. The location is half way between Friday Harbor and Roache Harbor, so easy to get anywhere on the island. The first drive down the driveway is a little intimidating but is really quite easy with plenty of room by the house. Water pressure/supply requires timing showers and laundry with a break between. Not sure if it is possible to fill and use the beautiful jetted tub? Wish we could have tried that out. Overall I highly recommend this property, it is worth the extra money.

Spectacular views! Complete with dolphin, seals and bald eagles! The house is gorgeous, immaculately kept, cozy, with all the amenities you need. You won't want to leave the house (although the rest of the island is worth exploring!).

Reviewer Comments:

We were fortunate to spend 5 nights at panorama Lodge. As others have said the pictures just don't do the home justice. The exterior of the home looks a little dated on the web page but it is not. Both the exterior and interior of the home are top notch. But it is the location that pushes this home over the top. We spent the majority of our time just sitting on the deck, which is 20 ft from the water, and watched sea stars, seals, eagles and dolphins swim by daily. On our next to last day a large pod of Orca whales swam right in front of the house. It was very exciting to not only see them but hear them as they came up and exhaled air and slapped their tales in the water. The weather was perfect and we couldn't ask for more. The rental agent for the house was very helpful as our dates of stay changed and they were very helpful in accommodating us. We would highly recommend this home to anyone that is looking for total privacy in a great home and an excellent location. Having king sized beds would be the only suggestion we have to improve the experience. Still this is a great place and we had a wonderful time

Five of us stayed in this home for several days in June 2014. We enjoyed the quiet and a lovely view. Very clean, and an interesting contemporary rustic decor. The only thing I can suggest is the addition of a salad spinner to the kitchen supplies. Had a wonderful dinner at the nearby Duck Soup restaurant. Thanks for sharing your home.
