Converted Artist's Studio in Friday Harbor w/Views

Bayside cottage with furnished balcony and fireplace
Your perfect romantic getaway awaits at 'Madrona Cove Cottage,' an eclectic vacation rental cottage in Friday Harbor. As soon as you arrive on the island, you'll be surrounded by the natural splendor of the Pacific Northwest and be greeted by this unique abode. Located on the serene San Juan Island, this 1-bath studio features accommodations for 2 and boasts incredible views of the water and local wildlife. Relax on the patio before a quick 5-minute drive into town to dine in coastal style.


Studio: Queen Bed

As you pull up to the property, you'll immediately notice Madrona Cove Cottage's unique design, as it once was an artist's studio that is now converted into a lovely rental space surrounded by Madrona trees.

Take in the breathtaking view of Griffin Bay and Merrifield Cove, where you'll see the rocks which are frequently occupied by seals.

After you tear yourself away from the stunning surroundings, head inside to get settled into this delightful property. Take a rest on the cozy loveseat, where you can enjoy the heat of the fireplace on chillier nights.

Prepare a home-cooked meal in the well-equipped kitchen or head out to the deck where you can cook up some burgers on the gas grill as you take in the fresh sea air.

When it's time to get some rest, you can wind down in the plush bed while watching your favorite show on the flat screen cable TV as you drift off to sleep.


This property's prime location is steps away from the beach and offers access to Griffin Bay and the Salish Sea where you can look for crab, nudibranch, and starfish, or simply listen to the waves and relax.

Travel a quarter of a mile away from the cottage where you can practice your swing on the public golf and tennis courts.

Explore the town of Friday Harbor by sampling the local fare at one of the restaurants, do some shopping, or catch a movie at the local theater.

Harbor seal Cove
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay st this cozy cottage overlooking a beautiful cove in the Salish Sea. We watched a group of harbor seals the entire time we were there. We saw an Eagle and many other birds as well. We would definitely return to the Madrona Cottage.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Overall very nice. I wish that they had a telescope to see out across the bay that would be a nice addition. The only other thing we could not find any dish clothes to do the dishes.
