Eighty-two acres of glamping fun on San Juan Island, with three lakes and summer camp–style activities
Modern rustic. Think exposed timber cabins layered with Hudson Bay blankets, sculpted iron lamps and knotty pine bedframes. The Lake House features an open floor plan with blond hardwood floors, a full covered porch and windows that fill the top half of the A-frame roof.
Bed & Bath
Lodge bedrooms have high wood plank ceilings and large fireplaces. All rooms have either patios or decks with rocking chairs for taking in the lake or woodland views. Spacious bathrooms have stone floors and jetted deep soaking tubs framed in cedar. Families and guests who want more privacy can choose between the six two-bedroom log cabins, which have full kitchens, dining nooks and large decks, or the three-bedroom Lake House, which has a sleeping loft, a wood-burning fireplace, a full kitchen, a dining room and an outdoor firepit.
The San Juan Islands sit in the area’s coveted “rain shadow,” so guests often have blue skies when the mainland is cloudy. It’s ideal weather for relaxing on the deck overlooking Neva Lake, one of three lakes on the property, or for romping about on foot or bicycle. You won’t find a spa or restaurant on-site, though Friday Harbor, the largest village in the San Juan Islands, offers a variety of excellent options.
In the Area
The San Juans offer the perfect Pacific Northwest escape: think cedar forests, rocky tide pools and orca pods. If you wish to “go deep,” Friday Harbor provides plenty of kayaking, whale-watching and salmon-fishing outfitters. The Whale Museum and Friday Harbor Laboratories offer further insights into the archipelago’s ecological diversity. Most restaurants offer Northwest island fare, such as grilled cedar plank salmon, Dungeness crab salads and sumptuous seafood chowders. The Bluff and Coho restaurants stand out for dinner, Market Chef for lunch and Bakery San Juan for warm treats in between.
