Blakely Island is a private island that's about 6 square miles in size and has two stunning freshwater lakes, an asphalt airstrip, a small marina, and general store.
The largest community, San Juan Aviation Estates, is located on the North end of the island. Many residents are avid boaters or pilots and utilize the asphalt airstrip or protected marina.
Blakely Island is unique in that nearly 50% of the island was placed in a trust by the Crowley family in 1993, and 80 more acres in 2010. This conservation easment provides island residents with meandering trails and 2,330 acres of forestland to explore.
The island topography is varied with areas containing historic homesteads and orchards, rocky bluffs, incredible vistas, and native wildlife.
Blakely Island still has many historic structures and a rich local history. Original log homes, island homesteads and heirloom orchards still exist on island. A favorite is the one-room schoolhouse located in the center of the island.
