This building started out as a barn with a view. Through the flukey resolution of the Pig War (a small war between the US and Great Britain fought on San Juan), the property looks south to Canada and Victoria. Now that the barn is a house, you can sit outside and watch a world of shipping traffic pour in and out of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. A large deck provides enough room to host a sunset party from high on the hill. Whales regularly swim by the shore far below, and if you want to get closer, drop down the hill to Lime Kiln State Park, an excellent spot for visiting the greys, orcas, and a parade of marine mammals.
