5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

My husband and I stayed in the Sun Flower room - it was very comfortable, within easy walking distance to all restaurants in Friday Harbor. The bathrooms were stocked with the local Lavender Farm shampoos and soaps - which smelled wonderful. The breakfasts were gourmet with local fruit. It was the perfect place to spend a nice weekend.

I am not one to write many online reviews, but I thought this was an important note to be sure guests know about. We stayed at the Argyle House on Friday Harbor and it was a nice little bed and breakfast that we would have no hesitation in recommending. We stayed in the Marilee Cottage, which is one of the...

Argyle House was very well located and walking distance from town, but on a nice quiet side street. The hosts were very nice, very helpful and the experience was overall a very good one. The best part about Argyle House is the breakfast every morning, a real gourmet treat, delicious, well-presented, and a good opportunity to meet your fellow guests.... More

We stayed at Argyle house for 3 nights in the Honeymoon Cottage. This is a separate accommodation with private entrance next to the main house and its private setting and proximity (within easy walking distance) to "downtown" Friday Harbor were our main reasons for booking here. Breakfast was filling (juice, pancakes or egg quiche, fresh fruit,muffins, and coffee/tea). Hosts were... More

We are glad that the reviewer had a generally pleasant stay at our B&B, and that the Honeymoon Cottage offered them the privacy and space they were looking for. We do find it a problem that the reviewer complained about our failure to tidy up their cottage, and that their glassware was not replaced each day. We make it our... More

My wife and I stayed at the Argyle House for one night during a long weekend in Friday Harbor. We live in the Pacific Northwest and have stayed at a few B&Bs. Pros: The host is friendly and very accomodating. The location is in walking distance to most things in Friday Harbor. The grounds of the home have nice plantings... More

We're glad that the reviewer generally had a good stay at Argyle House. Our missing a hair in the shower is, of course, inexcusable, and we will try to be extra diligent when we clean the bathrooms. As regards the prices of our rooms, our Fountain Room is at the moment the least expensive Bed and Breakfast room in the... More

My Husband and I spent two nights at Argyle House and were very pleased with our stay. The B&B is only a few blocks from the town and ferry terminal but, because of the wonderful garden setting. it feels much more secluded. We were the only guests during our visit so Art upgraded us to the honeymoon suite. It does... More

I was in Friday Harbor for a book signing, and stayed at the wonderful Argyle House. We were upgraded to one of the cottages. Everything was lovely. Hosts graciously served breakfast early to accommodate our schedule. Very convenient location. Beautiful gardens. Only wish I'd had more time to spend just enjoying this lovely B&B.

I spent five nights in the Fountain Room, a perfect base from which to explore the San Juan Islands. The room was cozy and clean, the breakfasts were incredible (Art and Jennifer are also very accommodating of dietary restrictions if you tell them), and the hosts were lovely. It also seems to attract an extremely friendly and interesting group of... More

We stayed at Argyle House for 2 nights in July. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend staying here. The hosts, Jennifer and Art were kind, friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious and hearty without being over the top. They recommended a great restaurant for us to celebrate my husband's birthday and kindly upgraded us to a... More
