A unique water view retreat, Westcott Woods cabin is the perfect place to spend both an active and restorative break. Perfect for a small group of friends, one or two couples, a small family or an artist in retreat, this cabin provides a private and rustic hide-away that feels deep in the forest, but with a beautiful view and waterfront access of Westcott Bay and everything the San Juan Islands have to offer.
Set back only one lot from Westcott Bay, the views of the water and sunset make Westcott Woods cozy and comforting.
Built from reclaimed materials found at historic sites on San Juan Island, Westcott Woods has an open floor plan with a sunken living room, as well as the front and back bedrooms. The entry leads into the kitchen and the separate eating area.
Both bedrooms have double size platform bed and look out onto the water. Skylights let in natural light all day long.
Westcott Woods has a charcoal grill to cook up the clams you dug at English Camp, the salmon you bought at Friday Harbor, or the shrimps sold on the docks at Roche Harbor. You can even season your feast with herbs from the drought-tolerant organic herb-garden.

My enthusiasm for the San Juan Islands began aboard a cruising yacht which I moored in Fisherman Bay, Lopez island. A touring kayak is now my preferred vessel for exploring these wonderful islands which have included many a paddle with our resident orcas! My children tell me that our cabin is one of their favorite places to spend time with family and friends. A garden designer by occupation, I have left Westcott Woods landscaped in its native habitat to encourage the wonderful bird and animal life. We enjoy almost daily sightings of eagles, osprey, songbirds, fox, raccoons, and deer.

There is something for everyone on San Juan Island...hikes, beaches of all kinds, airstrips, great restaurants, fresh seafood, bakeries, bird watching, kayaking, whale watching, a movie theatre and more!
This is the place to recreate and relax, spend time with friends or just unwind by oneself. The extensive English Camp and Roche Harbor trail system are within 5 minutes walking distance. Access to Westcott Bay allows for great clam digging.
We LOVED our time on the island and especially in your lovely cabin. We went out with a realtor looking at property and places for sale and my husband kept saying he wished we could just find a place like that!
Thanks so much for making such a unique place available for people to rent. I know we will be going back.
My husband, our two school-age kids, and I rented the Westcott Woods cabin for a week at the end of July in 2014.
What an amazing week, and the house was absolutely a big part of it. Cozy, comfortable, with plenty of room, and all the amenities. The kids said it felt like a fairy tale cottage tucked in the woods and overlooking the water. We picked blackberries (not *quite* ripe enough), we stargazed, we enjoyed the ravens and eagles in the surrounding trees....
And the property is just a hop, skip, and a jump away from both Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor, so it was a piece of cake to get to various attractions and restaurants (e.g,. English Camp, Kayaking, Whale Watching).
At night, we'd sit outside and enjoy the stars or go inside and enjoy the various games the house is equipped with (my daughter's particular favorite was Bingo).
What a delight! Thanks, Susan, for sharing your house with us. It truly felt like a home away from home!
I cannot recommend Westcott Woods highly enough. I spent an idyllic weekend there with my boyfriend, brother, and sister-in-law. The cabin is absolutely gorgeous, one-of-a-kind, and clearly so well loved by its owners. It was the perfect size for two couples. It was well-equipped, decorated with a discerning eye, and very comfortable. It reminded my brother and I very much of our beloved family cabin in Vermont, and felt like home as soon as we arrived. Perfect for a weekend of relaxing, spending time with loved ones, making music, cooking, and enjoying the outdoors. Thank you for the perfect weekend getaway!
The cabin itself was exactly what I was looking for: rustic, semi-secluded and totally relaxing. The views are amazing—especially if the weather is nice. The inside has a well-appointed kitchen and all of the comforts of home. The two wood-burning stoves will keep the place very warm, once you get the fires going. If you stay here, make sure to see the bald eagle feeding. It's one of the most incredible things I've ever seen. 10/10 would recommend.
This cabin experience was everything we could have hoped for. The place was so cozy and romantic, the views where amazing, and the attention to detail was perfect. Everything we needed to have a great/comfortable time was there and well labeled. We almost didn't want to tell our friends so we could keep the place all to our selves! But we just can't imagine others not being able to enjoy this lovely place. Thanks Westoctt Woods - We will be back for sure!
This was just what was needed - a perfect respite in a beautiful, quiet setting. Spent almost a week here and wish it was longer - easy to get around to all the spots on the island though mostly we loved coming back to this spot and reading and hanging out. Kitchen has everything you need to cook and a short walk to the most amazing oysters I have ever eaten! Surrounded by blackberries at this time of year so I had to spend some time baking muffins and a delicious crumble - having time to bake, read, walk and sit and listen to the wings of the birds overhead made the time very special. Cottage lovingly decorated in the style that felt like home to me - you can tell this spot is well cared for; thank you for sharing it. San Juan Island is defintely a place to return to.
