My wife and I spent one night at the Trumpeter Inn two weekends ago, and we had a simply wonderful time. Our room, Bay Laurel, was upstairs and had its own porch overlooking peaceful farmland. We spent a lovely early evening out there having a bottle of wine and cheese, though we could have chosen a dozen other inviting spots... More

Shaun does such a wonderful job hosting in her lovely home. She is helpful and friendly and also mindful of your privacy. From the homemade cookies and cold drinks when we arrived to the piping hot hot tub and picnic basket she let us use, we felt truly comfortable and grateful for the peace and quiet at the property. It's... More

We absolutely loved it!!! We have been to many other B&B's, but this Inn was so superior to all the rest, that out of 5 stars, I would rate it a Perfect 7! We booked seven nights. We thought that way we would be able to see the Orca Whales. And, boy did we! On our first whale watch adventure... More

We had a fantastic stay at The Trumpeter Inn. The property is relaxing and idyllic, the rooms comfortable (we stayed in the Yarrow room), and the breakfast delicious. Shawn is a great hostess and is so knowledgable about the island, giving us great recommendations for where to eat and activities to check out. The Inn's location provides easy access to... More

It was the first time I had been to the San Juan island and from the very moment I came into the drive way I loved this place. It is a place with such a peaceful environment with nature all around,. In the morning I took myself with my coffee out side to view the pond in the yard along... More

We spent two very nice nights at the Trumpeter and wish we could have stayed longer. Shawn's breakfasts are terrific and she is very welcoming. Alpacas, llamas, hot tubs, wonderful showers, all contribute to a good visit, but the breakfasts were still the very best part.

We spent three nights at the Trumpeter Inn recently and were very impressed by the location, the quality of the rooms, the delicious breakfasts, and the hospitality of the owner. Shaun was super helpful with making reservations for us for dinner and for a whale watching excursion. She also surprised us with chocolate covered strawberries for my husband's birthday. Her...

I am so happy we chose the Trumpeter Inn for the last three days of our vacation! I tried booking last summer, but our dates didn't match with what was available. Having followed fellow Tripadvisor's reviews in the interim, I booked early on and reserved the Savory room, which is big enough for three. If I were to repeat every... More

Wonderfully welcomed by Shaun and her precious property. She shares her animals as well as her Inn. The alpacas and goats are friendly and pettable (if that's a word). The amenities delightful and the breakfasts generous and inspired. A great place to relax and rejuvenate...and then return to again and again.

Thanks to Shaun's friendly and outgoing personality and her beautiful property we had a fabulous vacation. The property is so restful and super clean. The animals are charming and the location perfect. Our favorite activity we did was renting scooters from Susie's Mopeds.

Welcome to The Trumpeter Inn, one of San Juan Island’s premier lodging establishments. Our pastoral estate, designated an official Backyard Wildlife Sanctuary, offers a unique opportunity for guests to enjoy and view deer, fox, trumpeter swans, dabbling ducks and other wetland species. Country quiet, yet less than five minutes from “downtown” Friday Harbor where you can enjoy the island’s charming shops, numerous art galleries and fine gourmet restaurants.In the morning, with a cup of coffee in hand, walk along the country lane or down the meandering trail on the five acre property to visit the miniature goats and alpacas or enjoy the horses and cattle on adjacent pastures. Spend the afternoon in the beautiful gardens featuring a panoramic view of the entire San Juan Valley, and in the distance, False Bay and Washington’s snow-capped Olympic Mountains. In the evening, relax on a lawn chair or private patio and view the sky exploding with stars.The Trumpeter Inn is one of the few San Juan Island accommodations that provides concierge services. We will happily help you arrange for memorable whale watching experiences, kayaking, and romantic dinners.If you are looking for accommodations on San Juan Island, we look forward to welcoming you to The Trumpeter Inn Bed & Breakfast. ... more   less
