Quick Note About Etta Egeland’s Home

Historian Etta Egeland’s home is a restored 1895 Prairie Victorian San Juan Island Home located in the New York Time’s recommended Number 2 destination in the world to visit!

The home’s interior is brimming with traditional Victorian charm and original building details such as the banister and staircase, original fir flooring and 1895 exterior patterned shingles.

The Details:

  • Etta’s Place is a Boutique Hotel style accommodation with only 2 available suites;  each with separate entrances accessed through a main hallway.
  • Etta’s Place is suitable for couples or a couple with a baby or up to two children under 8.

Note:  If you have a larger family and need to occupy both suites, I do have a discounted rate for combining both units.  Please do understand, though, there is no common kitchen or living room for larger groups to gather.

  • Etta’s Place is conveniently located in downtown Friday Harbor; only 4 blocks from the San Juan Island ferry landing so it is cost effective to leave your car at the Ferry Landing in Anacortes, then just walk on to save the higher ferry rates and long waits during the summer!
  • The town’s historic restaurants and shops are all within a short walking distance of Etta’s Place. Several modes of transportation are easily available to get around on this 10 mile wide by 22 mile long island.

Come to enjoy the Quiet Season!
