Francois, Thank you for your outstanding hospitality during Hendrina and myself overnight at your venue. The room with its own lounge and stocked fridge was the first ever experienced with a B&B. Your breakfast the next morning and the time you spend with us talking was priceless. May this establishment grew from strength to strength, and yes you will see... More

The weather was perfect and to top off a day of touring Friday Harbor and San Juan Island our stay at Harrison House Suites was beyond expectations. The room was perfect, very clean, beautiful decor and very comfy bed. Enjoying our dinner on the deck in the sunshine was amazing. We are looking forward to staying here again.

Barbara, Thank you for staying at the Harrison House Suites in the sunny San Juan Islands. The Islands are in the rain shadow and we do enjoy 1/3 rain and 2/3 sunshine compared to the mainland which is exactly the opposite. We have the deck umbrellas up and we're ready to welcome our guests for the summer season. We are... More

Me and my girlfriend had the best romantic stay possible in the Orca Suite at Harrison House. Very thing was top notch. Great view of the harbor from the private hot tub on the deck. I plan to do this again.

This was our first time on the island would have like to have someone to talk to about what the island had to offer but the check in was confusing and the only greeting we had was an envelope with our name on it, a letter explaining the location of our room and a key. The room was nice just... More

Jamie, Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write about your stay. The San Juan Islands enjoy temperate weather throughout the year. Even in the heat of summer the temperature barely tickles the 80s and drops 20 degrees at night. We are enjoying a beautiful spring with highs in the mid-50s and lows in the 40s... More

We took a quick trip to Friday Harbor for a little R&R and wanted to take the dogs (two 50 and 75 pounders) with us. We spoke with Beth (the lady who is worth her weight in gold to the owners) who lined us up with the appropriate suite. Suite was clean (and a bit chilly upon arrival - they... More

Locate it in heaven... :) We spent a delightful Valentine's/President's Day weekend in the San Juan Suite at Harrison House Suites (the sister property to Tucker House, which was my very first TripAdvisor review).
