“Charming bed and breakfast on the boat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

This was a lot of fun. The bed and the bathroom is not especially comfortable, but the idea of staying on a boat is great. And our host Laura made sure we were well taken care of. I would recommend staying here.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

We spent a weekend on a charming 60" motor sailor with two staterooms. We stayed in the forward stateroom next to the main salon and private bathroom....lots and lots of charm.We had the boat all to ourselves and had at our disposal DVD's,CD's,books and Wi-Fi.The owner cooked a delicious breakfast the next morning with a secret family recipe of "creamy" syrup over a baked peach pancake dish,bacon,sausage and lots of coffee or tea.She asked beforehand if we had any special dietary needs so no worries there.
The boat is located within walking distance of the ferry system and downtown Friday Harbor full of restaurants and quaint shops. The island itself is home to a vineyard and distillery and even in the quiet season, there's plenty to do-complete with fewer people and cars.It was a wonderful weekend.SDilbeck

A splendid concept (B&B on a retired boat) but would be a better place to stay if it were cleaner and less cluttered. Great location. It was delightful to be on the water.

We had visited 10 years ago, when it was under different owners and the vessel was much more 'ship shape.'

Room Tip: either room is ok

What an awesome time we had. One can walk anywhere in town from this location, yet have privacy and peace and quiet! Breakfast was excellent with family recipes and smiles. Very romantic with all the comforts of a home .... on board! A definite repeat!!
