Do you want to combine the convenience of downtown Friday Harbor and the relaxation of country life? Consider spending your vacation at 1870 Lampard Road. We are on a narrow, dead-end, country road one mile from the Town’s boundary. We are less than two miles from downtown and the ferry landing and less than 1.5 miles from the airport. View a street map of the region here.
We are on 5 acres and surrounded by large parcels. We look over the farmlands of San Juan Valley on to the Straits of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains. This view has been declared by a citizen committee to be the second best in all of San Juan County. See the Olympics on the horizon?

If you choose to walk on the ferry or if you fly into the nearby Friday Harbor Airport, you can walk, or taxi to the house. Otherwise, there is ample parking for up to three cars. Once there, you will enjoy the quiet and solitude of Lampard Road.

You will hear a neighbor’s lambs bleating every evening and the ravens every day. Because of the large number of nearby lakes, you will also hear ducks, geese, and other water fowl. On a clear morning, snow covered Mount Olympus greets you as you awake. Other days you will watch the fog slide across the valley floor and slowly evaporate.

Walk, bike, or drive back to town for groceries, food to go, a DVD or for shopping. Later, sit on the deck while barbequing dinner and watching the sun set over Mount Dallas. Harvest fruit and vegetables from the garden for dinner and dessert. That evening enjoy the night sky and, and appreciate our Canadian neighbors while observing the reflected lights from Victoria.

After a very quiet night’s rest, explore all the recreational activities that San Juan Island has to offer. Kayaking, Whale Watching, Native American art, our two National Parks, one State Park, and several County and Town parks.


Our home and property are very child-friendly. Your children are invited to explore the tree-climbing tree, our toddler's swing, and our tricycle. The very light traffic at the end of Lampard Road ensures that you and your children will be safe if you bike or walk on the road. Is there a runner in your party? Lampard is great for a two mile run. If you're looking for longer runs, follow these links:

4.7 miles
6.7 miles
7.5 miles
8.8 miles
(While there's little traffic on Lampard Rd. please be very careful running on our other narrow, more heavily traveled roads)

Interested in a marine tour? Your host is a former Coast Guard certified Master and owns several vessels that could accommodate your every need. There would be additional charges for this service. Contact us with your ideas.
