It's not for folks who like to be pampered. It is a unique place run by hard-working folks who will do their best to make you comfortable while running a farm. We especially enjoyed sitting around the fire pit cooking smores, watching the stars, and socializing with other guests. There is also a small tv and dvd that we watch some fun movies on. Read more. Date of stay: August Location. Room Tip: The barn loft has got a great view of the grounds.

Helpful Share. Jeremy F wrote a review Aug So Thankful For This Experience. From the first email during booking to the most kind email after we left, Shana and Once in a Blue Moon Farm were amazing! My wife, two daughters ages 5 and 3 , and I were looking for a few day getaway in the San Juan Islands.
I stumbled upon this farm looking at Google Maps and immediately read reviews. I was surprised to read the low reviews here, but found a breadth of other reviews elsewhere and decided to book a place based on what I thought our experience would be like. The experience was more than we could have ever expected. We arrived to the farm and Shana showed us where we would be staying - the Rock Rose Suite. It was a perfect setup for my family and situated right next to all of the goats. My kids love all animals and were thrilled to be next to the goats.
We also ended up having a visitor to the farm stay close by too - a beautiful peacock. The suite was immaculate and there was even a wonderful chalkboard message welcoming each of us by name. Shana made us feel like family from the very beginning and she even welcomed us into her home when it was time to say goodbye. When we weren't exploring around Orcas Island, we were exploring around the farm. Shana showed us around a couple of times and we were also able to explore around ourselves whenever we wanted - always being respectful to the animals and the land.
One evening, another family came to see the animals and Shana let the kids from both families feed the goats, chickens, and alpaca. The kids had so much fun and learned a lot.
Like any good vacation, it was too short. We were sad to say goodbye to the suite, the beautiful sunsets from the porch, the animals, the land, and to Shana. Luckily, as we went looking for her to say goodbye, she welcomed us into her home and we got to meet her mother. We learned more of the history of the land and the animals. The farm is very special to them for many reasons and it shows everyday in the hard work they put into it - Shana and one of her sons run the entire farm with occasional help from friends when they can get it. After leaving, we came home to find the most kind email waiting for us from Shana.
Just as we felt like part of the farm family from the beginning, she also felt like part of our family from the time we shared together. Thank you Shana for taking us in with open arms and letting us experience the magic that is Once in a Blue Moon Farm. It was an experience the four of us will remember forever!

We had to dodge the flowers to get to it, and ate our breakfast outside- with the turkeys gobbling good morning to us! The owner personally welcomed us when we arrived. The variety of happy animals, beautiful gardens and comfortable accommodations made this one of the highlights of our trip. If you want a sense of a real, sustainable farm - no fake stuff - this is it. Date of stay: June Rooms.

Because of the marine climate, it is possible to feel cold on San Juan Island in any season. That's why park staff and volunteers wear layers and islanders carry a pile of external wear clothing on the back seat of their vehicles. Moreoever, the climate can change from one end of the island to the other. For example, the mean rainfall at American Camp is about 22 inches a year, while at English Camp it is 36 inches.
And in the summer, hot weather usually brings a chill fog that may linger into late afternoon. Box Friday Harbor , WA Explore This Park.
