I invite you to rent my Cady Mountain guest suite on San Juan Island.

Sunny Knoll offers spectacular views of Haro Strait and Vancouver Island. Mt. Rainier is visible to the Southeast and the lights of Victoria, British Columbia twinkle in the West. The Suite's unique location provides stunning views of both sunrises and sunsets. Relax and enjoy the view in your own private hot tub.

At night the stars blanket the sky and lights of passing freighters dance along Haro Strait below. On foggy nights you can hear the distant call of the Lime Kiln State Park lighthouse foghorn. The Suite is a wing of my private residence which is situated on a very tranquil twenty acres of forestland and glacial scoured meadows - you'll see deer & bald eagles. Fill your water bottle for the day with our fresh, cold well water.
