This was a very quaint and quiet retreat. We are "city folk" and not used to a bed and breakfast (well, just one of us was and it exceeded that experience). Patrick took the time to give us a tour of our rooms (two). The rooms are decorated as if you were at home and not the "hotel" feel at... More

Nice location and our room was the largest( Forest Room) with very nice bathroom). Breakfast was good and nicely presented but not very unique. Inn keeper was fine but not very gregarious. A very good but not "great" place.

We only stayed one night in the Salal room and enjoyed our stay there. The bed and sheets were very comfy. Spending the last night of our vacation in the private hot tub located just outside the room was perfect way to end it. The house was cozy and the host was great!

Our visit to Inn to the Woods was delayed because we missed the 5 p.m. ferry to Friday Harbor. I called Patrick from Anacortes to let him know we would be arriving late and he was very gracious and told us he would be awake and waiting for our approximate 9:30 arrival. As promised, he was waiting and gave us... More

Four friends visiting San Juan Islands shared two rooms at this cozy B&B. I really enjoyed my stay there. The living room was great to hang out when one's roomie retires earlier. Breakfast made by Patrick on two mornings was delicious!

We found the Inn to the Woods to be a great find at a beautiful location. The room was nicely decorated, the bed was comfortable, and the food was delicious. We were able to sit outside on the porch which was very pleasant. The living room was very comfortable and stocked with many books for our perusal. The staff was... More

We booked two nights at the Inn to the Woods and ended up only staying one evening. When I booked the room online I saw that it specifically said the room accommodated two people so I called to ask if we could bring our almost 2 year old daughter and golden retriever. There must have been some communication problems because... More

This property is pretty average for B&Bs on San Juan Island. However, the lower off-season rates make it an attractive choice for a winter getaway. Our room was smallish but very clean. The provided robes are a nice touch. There are nice views of the nearby lake, and it is very quiet and peaceful. The common room is a comfortable... More

We had a wonderful time at this B&B. Patrick was a very welcoming and generous host. He made us comfortable and provided us with helpful information about the island but also provided us with plenty of privacy to relax and enjoy ourselves. Our room was very clean and comfortable. I would recommend this B&B to anyone spending time in Friday... More

This place is really a run down home. The price is extremely high in comparison to ammenities you may find at a different B and B. Our room was titled the Nautica room and the furnishings are extremely uncomfortable. The bed is extremely soft and the remaining furniture is very undesireable. The website stated private bath that is actually not... More
