“Incredibly Hospitable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Upon arriving on the front porch we were greeted with open arms and welcomed into Jennifer and Art's home. They were incredibly friendly and accommodating to us, our almost two your old daughter, and our golden retriever. We stayed in the Marliee cottage which was not attached to the main house. It was clean and bright and had a wonderful outdoor space to sit and read. The B&B is located within a short walk from "downtown" Friday Harbor and also located close to a park which was great for our daughter's excess energy. Everything was fantastic, even the homemade breakfast!

Room Tip: Marilee cottage great if you need a little more space for kids and/or dogs

We sapent three nights at Argyle House while exploring the surrounding waters. The room was spacious and the bathroom clean and sparkling. Breakfast was adequate, although not spectacular. The walk to downtown and the ferry was a only ten minutes. Good value.

Our stay at the Argyle House on San Juan was perfect. Sunshine. Perfect temperature. Great food. Our thoughtfully appointed room with the scent of lavender, fresh flowers from Jennifer and Art's lovely gardens, their warm hospitality and the freshly picked blackberries for breakfast engaged all our senses in the stay. Argyle House is situated just a few blocks from the center of Friday Harbor and made for easy exploring of the town without having to worry about parking and driving. We are only sorry we didn't stay longer and have a chance to use the hot tub.

We enjoyed a brief stay in Friday Harbour at the Argyle House. We stayed in the Sunflower Room which is at the back of the house - it was clean and very quiet. Breakfast was terrific and we met some other nice folks around the table. The location is a five minute walk from the 'downtown core' of Friday Harbour.

We live in the dry southwest, and the San Juan islands are GORGEOUSLY green and lush. Friday Harbor was a BLAST. Great food and lots to do like hiking, kayaking and touring the beautiful island.
Argyle Inn was delightfully close to town, very comfortable and clean, with the nicest inkeepers we've met in many years. Yummy breakfast, games and fun things to do. WE'LL BE BAAAAAACK!
Five stars!

Stayed here during our trip to the San Juans. The owners are very friendly. Rooms are very comfortable and the location is great. Very convenient to the ferry. Breakfast was also incredible every morning. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: They only have 3, and they are all good.

Thank you for your kind review! To clarify your room tip, however, we have 5 rooms available: 3 rooms in the upstairs of our main house, and two cottages in the back. We've updated our TripAdvisor listing to reflect this, and hope it will be more clear for other potential guests.
