Channel House-This San Juan Island vacation rental home offers sweeping views across San Juan Channel to Orcas Island and other surrounding islands. Floor to ceiling windows invite the exquisite beauty of nature into your living room, kitchen, and dining areas - the waterfront is so near that it feels like part of the living room! The natural environment surrounding this home provides frequent sightings of deer, eagles, porpoise, seals, sea lions, and on occasion, Orca and Minke Whales. This home is an ideal setting for those who enjoy reading, fishing, cooking, hiking, and just relaxing to the sound of the sea.
The living room opens to the deck and is furnished with wall-to-wall carpeting, leather seating, DVD/CD & i-pod player. Wool Pendleton and fleece blankets are thoughtfully provided to keep you cozy while sitting outside by the firepit or at the waterside bench. Two queen-sized bedrooms face the water and enjoy their own private decks, reading areas & radios. The master bedroom features a seating area and the master bath offers a walk-in shower. A third bedroom contains bunk beds, a second DVD player and a concealed Maytag washer and dryer.
Gourmet cooking and entertaining are encouraged in this vacation home's well-equipped kitchen that offers a bread machine, ice maker, service for 12, serving dishes, candles, new dishwasher, high-tech induction stovetop, seasonings, two ovens, & cookbooks. There is a gas BBQ just outside and sage, thyme, rosemary, chives, mint and other spices growing in containers for your use. A wood stove in the dining room (firewood is provided) adds to a cozy evening environment.
Reach the rocky shoreline on an easy path down 4 steps; you might fish for your dinner as fishing, crabbing, and shrimping gear are provided. Hikers will enjoy discovering the Old Growth Forest Reserve just three blocks away. At Channel House, you can blissfully escape from the world as there is no television reception for distraction - but, there is a new 55' HDTV monitor and BlueRay player with lots of WIFI options and movies.
Channel House is located at the end of a private road, just 2.5 miles from the ferry landing and the Town of Friday Harbor, where you will enjoy many shops, restaurants, and cultural attractions.
