Real Estate in
Friday Harbor, WA
Come to a place of quiet privacy and breathtaking beauty. Find a different way of life on Shaw Island. The pace is slower, the world quieter, the people approachable.
At approximately 7.5 square miles, Shaw Island is the smallest of the ferry-serviced islands in the archipelago. Very quiet and private with a close-knit community consisting of residents acting as stewards of a protected way of life, the only real public services consist of a quaint general store and post office at the ferry landing and a little schoolhouse, library, and historical society in a lush setting up the road. There are no businesses pertaining to tourism to maintain the character of the island as a small-scale, rural, and agricultural community.
Simply put, Shaw Island is perfection in a small package.
