For our mother's 80th birthday, my brother, sister and myself stayed for 2 nights at Harrison House Suites. It was unanimous that the place, the people, the food and the service were the favorite part of our 7 day trip throughout the Pacific Northwest. The suite was very very clean, the quality, freshness, and flavor of the food was superior.... More

We stayed for just one night, but the experience was very good. We stayed in the Orcas Suite. The room has a beautiful view of the harbor and there were amazing cookies and truffles waiting for us in the room after we checked in. They also prepared breakfast for us and brought up to the room. It was included in... More

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.

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

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.

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.
