The Kirk House is a great B&B. We stayed there 2 nights in the Trellis room in late September. There are 3 areas I feel makes a great B&B, the house, the proprietor, and the location. The house and guest rooms were far better than your typical B&B. The rooms were larger than normal for an older house and were better appointed. The Trellis room was not my first choice since the picture on the web site makes it look a little feminine but the other rooms were booked. It was not too feminine and was actually quite good. The common area was comfortable and well appointed. If it was my house, I could really have some nice parties in that common area. The breakfasts were excellent and too tempting if you are watching calories. The proprietors, Roxy and Doug, seem to be a natural for this business. They were attentive, organized, creative, and just overall a joy to talk with. It’s hard to believe they have only been proprietors for less than a year. It could be their newness to the business that allows them to still hold on to that spark and joy they bring to their job. The location at Friday Harbor is great. It is close to the downtown area without being in the middle of a noisy area. We walked to the B&B from the ferry and walked to the restaurants every night. Too often B&Bs are located in inconvenient locations. I would definitely recommend the Kirk House to anyone going to Friday Harbor.
