About Nina Le Baron, AIA

Architect wife, Real Estate agent husband, built this dream home after re-locating from Mill Valley, CA. with their 2 children. We bought the property because of the great views and the spectacular sunsets won our hearts.

Nina Le Baron, AIA purchased this house in 2004

Why Nina Le Baron, AIA chose San Juan Island

This house was designed as our private residence.

What makes this house unique

Privacy, seclusion and spectacular sunsets. Very quiet location makes you feel you are away from it all. Roche Harbor is only ten minutes away for great waterfront activities and dining and grocery store. Enjoy wildlife viewing right out the window with bald eagles nesting in the trees out back and deer roaming daily. We would be happy to send you more photos of the interiors upon request.

Relaxed place to gather

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated three 5Oth birthdays during our stay. This property comfortably accommodated seven adults, allowing for both comfortable public space to share and private quarters in which to retreat. The kitchen is well appointed for summer cooking and dining on the deck while taking in the view of sunsets over Mitchell Bay was delightful.

Exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

Three families were together for our annual summer getaway. The Mitchell Bay property is so much more than a house. Six adults, one two year old toddler, and one two year old boxer had plenty of room to spread out, relax, enjoy daily walks to Krystal Acres Alpaca Farm, sun, and the beautiful view from the expansive window seat overlooking Mitchell Bay. This home radiates a beautiful energy. Amazing art is throughout the house and invites a closer look. With two dishwashers and two sinks, the kitchen was a dream to prep, cook, and clean up in. Evening dinners and bbqs on the west deck were fabulous. Must also mention the large Sub-Zero refrigerator-plenty of room for groceries! Our boxer Emmy loved the dog beds and water dishes. Her favorite spot was the large doggie bed under the kitchen counter. Thank you Nina and a big thank you to Beth & Gary, your extraordinary property managers.

Your beautifully designed home was perfect for our San Juan Island vacation.

Fabulous Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Hello Nina,

I just wanted to let you know what a lovely home you have on Mitchell Bay! We all had a very relaxing and wonderful stay! Your home is beautifully decorated and the layout was perfect for just relaxing or entertaining! We had absolutely everything we needed to prepare and enjoy meals in the amazing kitchen since we like to cook and eat most of our meals at home. We couldn't have asked for anything more, it was all fabulous. Hopefully we can do it again next year!

We just returned from an extraordinary trip to the San Juan Islands. What made it so special was this fabulous house and it's incredible location on Mitchell Bay. Every morning we would greet the family of deer that came into the back yard off the deck. When we weren't lounging on the deck, we were enjoying the restaurant equipped kitchen, large enough for 8 chefs! The Master Suite was truly a highlight, as well. This is a keeper for next year!

6-star property and amenities

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough positive things about the home, amenities and owners. We came with three families and have plenty of space between the group. The kitchen was a huge benefit, as we cooked our catch each night and the outdoor space, grill and fireplace were a hit every day/night.

We'll hopefully be back again - without question a great value and place to unwind.

We are located at the backside of Mitchell Bay facing West for Beautiful sunsets on the private deck. A short walk down a path leads to the bank of Mitchell Bay- great for clamming or picnicking. Enjoy a nap in the hammock by the fire pit up by the house. Nature galore with bald eagles in the surrounding trees, deer wandering through on a daily basis and lots of bird life. We are close to English Camp, Mount Young, 350 acres of open space trails on Mitchell Hill. Roche Harbor is a 5 minute drive with a Spa, shops, artisan booths, 3 restaurants and a grocery store. The Roche Harbor Marina has kayak rentals, and bike/moped rentals with Suzie's Mopeds. An Alpaca farm and country store is also down the street. Friday Harbor is a 15 minute drive away. The closest Public Beaches with 'sand' are Jackson's Beach, and at American Camp (the biggest). Watch whales from the shore at the County Park- great for picnicking at sunset too! Most of our shoreline is rocky (we call our island the ROCK), so there are not many private sandy beaches. Enjoy the best of the Pacific Northwest here!
