Great combination between B&B, hotel and house. It has all the cozy charm of a B&B. Lovely details in every corner, very cool, pretty, funky and fun. The full kitchen, complete with coffee, tea & cream--you bring the rest--gave us freedom to cook for ourselves and enjoy the amazing meadow in back complete with bleating sheep, kitty and nesting bald eagle. It afforded some fun communal space to visit with other guests who were unobtrusively enjoying the World Cup games on TV, but plenty of privacy as well. Juniper leaves you alone but is available to help with anything.
We stayed in the Pine room, which accomodates a family of 5. I thought it might get stuffy or rowdy to share a room with our teen and pre-teen kids, but there is so much to do in San Juan island that by the time the sun set this far in the Northwest, everyone was ready for a restful sleep in the peaceful woodsy neighborhood just far enough from town.
I hope to come back to Juniper's place, it was great!
