Your hosts, owners Lea and Christian will make you feel at home, take great care of your every need and give you the opportunity to experience the many gifts of the San Juan Islands. The serene and peaceful surroundings, amazing vistas and delightful ambiance of their historic farmhouse, you will want to return again and again.

That's the name of the road Olympic Lights B & B is on. That says a lot. Starlight can be a notable part of personal experience. And this B & B is notable. Having stayed in every room during multiple visits, I can say Olympic Lights is consistently the best. Very clean, terrific breakfasts, well kept gardens and grounds, and... More

Not only is Olympic LIghts (a renovated large farmhouse) situated with an incredible view and gorgeous gardens but the proprietors, Christian and Lea, were special people. The rooms also are gorrgeously decorated and impeccably clean.They are happy to leave you alone if you want them to, but if you need directions or recommendations about the area, etc., they will give...

We had looked forward to staying at Olympic Lights last summer, based on the positive reviews posted online. Unfortunately, the reality is quite different. The B & B is an old, musty and nondescript building, the proprietors are unfriendly and unhelpful, and the breakfasts are terrible.

Looked for accommodation online for a planned road trip involving the San Juan Islands. Olympic Lights was prominent in the search and I can attest it is for good reason. About half the price of staying in Friday Harbor, this has many benefits. You are away from the town and have the entire yard to relax and enjoy solitude (plus... More

Early September on San Juan Island: blue skies, warm breezes, awesome scenery, delicious food, beautiful nature, invigorating hikes-----how could it get any better? Just add this excellent B & B to the equation and voila! Perfection! So many wonderful things could be said about staying here with hosts Christian and Lea, but I would be repeating so much of what... More

We picked this B&B from a website listing of several B&Bs on San Juan Island without any reference or recommendation. It could have gone either way but luckily, it went the right way...very much the right way. This B&B is situated on 5 quiet acres near the Strait of San Juan de Fuca as well as a short walk to...

My husband and I were stranded for our wedding night; a different local "resort" conveniently "lost" our reservation when they realized they originally quoted us the wrong price, but of course neglected to tell us until the night before the wedding. My in laws were staying at Olympic Lights for our wedding on San Juan island and they graciously offered... More
