the Place

Saltwater Farm is located just outside the town of Friday Harbor but feels like a world all its own. Flanked by San Juan Valley, American Camp Trail, and protected port land, even the far reaches of the farm feel wild and apart.

In a sunny meadow at the heart of the property, the event Barn is a beautiful place for gathering and offers complete privacy. Fir forests, fields, and ponds make the farm home to thousands of species of plants and animals, while miles of nature trails provide the perfect way to explore the property and meet some of the resident flora and fauna.

From trail running to stargazing to sipping champagne on the deck, Saltwater Farm offers something special for each of your guests. The moment you arrive, the entire place is yours to enjoy.



the Barn

Thoughtfully placed at the center of our main meadow, the 5,000 square-foot, solar-powered event barn is the perfect place to celebrate your union. Soak up the warm glow from the rough-sawn wood paneling, milled on-site from our island fir trees.

Fully insulated and temperature-controlled, the Barn includes a complete catering kitchen, restrooms (including ADA approved), and private wedding suite.

Hold your cocktail hour on the patio and throw the barn doors open for full effect. The Barn provides a stunning backdrop to whatever you imagine for your special celebration.




the Wedding Suite

Imagine taking a private moment with your new spouse to look out over all the special people in your life who have gathered to support you.

Our beautiful wedding suite is a 2-bedroom, 1-bath residence with a kitchen, loft, and living area overlooking the event space below.

One of two wedding party preparation areas, the suite is fully equipped with mirrors, comfy seating, and champagne flutes.



the Shop

A converted barn with a classy industrial vibe, the shoppe is a fun and super unique spot for you and your wedding party to prepare for your big day.

Complete with bathroom, shower, wood burning stove, and DIY bar, the shoppe is our second wedding party preparation area.

Attached to the Shop is a 500 square-foot staging area. From favors to flower arranging, we know that sometimes you need a spot to spread out and execute your vision.

We’ve set aside a work space, complete with plenty of counter space, for you to orchestrate the special touches that’ll make your day just what you want it to be.




the Homegrown

Set in our peaceful outer meadow, this fully equipped yet totally off-grid tiny home comes complete with kitchen, dinette, queen bed, and bathroom with shower and composting toilet.

Use this sweet spot to house some outdoor-loving friends or as a fun and unique spot to spend your wedding night. The Homegrown is included in all weekend rentals.

For more info, check out our friends at Homegrown Trailers in Kirkland, WA.



the Inn

With a weekend rental, the Inn is exclusively yours. Perched on a ridge overlooking the sea, the main house provides a wonderful gathering spot for you and your loved ones.

Hold an intimate rehearsal dinner at our 15 foot live-edge slab table (grown, milled, and built on-site) or a farewell brunch on the deck overlooking the water.

*For single day wedding packages, the Inn is open to the public for bookings and is first-come, first-serve. We highly recommend making your reservations as early as possible!




the Ceremony

Saltwater Farm has a beautifully designed ceremony site on our ridge overlooking the mountains and ocean. We also have over 160 acres of other magical meadows and knolls just waiting for your vision.

Always wanted to hang lanterns in the forest for a midsummer night's rehearsal dinner? Got a crazy idea for a cocktail hour scavenger hunt? Let’s do it!



Getting Here

Saltwater Farm is located on San Juan Island, part of a beautiful archipelago in the Salish Sea off the coast of WA state. San Juan Island is easily reachable by sea and by air.

We are right next to the town of Friday Harbor, just 1 mile from the ferry dock and a 2-minute walk from the airport! This is ideal for those who do not wish to bring a car on the island (or who show up too late to make their ferry reservation).
