We stayed in the Marilee Cottage which is a separate building from the main house. The owners were very pleasant; friendly and helpful without being overpoweringly present; they also had a charming daughter. They allow dogs which worried me a little when I booked; I was concerned the room might smell of dog. It didn't (thought it did smell somewhat... More

Stayed here for work with a coworker; one of few places in Friday Harbor that offered two beds. The hospitality of the owners were great as they were able to accommodate breakfast for us easily; breakfast was delicious and they offered a good variety. Owners are very friendly and accommodating. But watch out for the family dog; she likes to... More

My fiancee and I stayed at the Argyle House for 2 nights in the honeymoon cottage. It was our first time at a bed and breakfast (we usually go the hotel route). It was a great, quiet little room that was the perfect size and had a minifridge for our use. It was only a 5 minute walk into downtown... More

I like a B&B that has personality, and this one definitely had it. Where else would you get to play with Guinea Pigs? Interesting house with beautiful grounds. Friendly and helpful owners. A few blocks walk into town, but we had a car so it was no big deal.

Argyle house B&B is a comfortable bungalow and quaint cottages in a lush garden. The small garden wraps the house and cottages with rustic pathways. There are great outdoor relaxation spots including a hot tub, porch and garden/terrace seating. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The hosts were friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were delicious and the evening return home was... More

The B&B is a charming home in a great location very close to the Ferry. The hosts are very nice and welcoming. It is very convenient to walk around Friday Harbor. The breakfast is served at a set time, 8:30am, so you have to plan your morning schedule accordingly unless you don't mind missing it. We had wanted to eat... More

This beautifully maintained bed and breakfast is in walking distant to downtown and to the ferry landing. Our breakfasts were truly gourmet and good references were available for restaurants and attractions. The innkeepers were gracious and well informed and soon will be providing omelets from their own flock.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay here. Art and Jennifer went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay and had great advice on the ferry system which we sorely needed. Beautiful old home, very nice room, and the breakfast was really delicious. Also, a short walk to all the action in town.

We stayed with Art & Jennifer for 3 nights. Our first night we had just returned from 5 days of kayak camping. We were a salty mess. Art was so gracious and welcoming. We loved the breakfasts and how accommodating both Jennifer and Art were with us. We needed an early breakfast for a friend who had an early ferry;... More
