“Top Notch B&B and More”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

We spent 3 nights at The Kirk House at the end of September/ beginning of October. The room (we stayed in The Trellis Room), the location and the big parlor were everything you would expect in a top quality B&B. But the incredible breakfasts, the afternoon treats, and particularly the friendly and helpful hosts, Doug and Roxy, made our stay something we will remember forever and hope to return to again.

We visited the San Juan Islands about two weeks ago where we stayed with Doug and Roxy and it was a truly memorable experience. We were a little skeptical at first because we've never stayed at a bed and breakfast before but they helped us feel right at home. Very welcoming and generous. They went out of their way to ensure that we were settled in, gave us information about restaurants, sites to visit, the list goes on. With special dietary needs, they went out of their way to meet them. After a long day of trekking and sight seeing, we were always welcomed back with smiles, gluten free treats in our room and so much more. Roxy is quite the gluten free baker! It was a blessing to be able to sit down at breakfast with complete strangers and leave out friends. Doug makes an awesome parfait for breakfast (I'm not a fan of parfaits but he has changed my mind!). This is definitely a place that I would recommend to anyone and would gladly go back anytime. It's worth it!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Veranda Room and it was lovely! Worth it!

The Kirk House Bed and Breakfast is a WONDERFUL place to stay. Awesome relaxing porch to lounge and relax. There was 5 of us all together, all the rooms were great. Roxy and Doug are the heart of the B&B. Their attention to detail is fantastic. My sister was getting married on the island, they went out of there way to make their time there extra special. And the breakfast each morning was fabulous and they even made us 'breakfast to go' on the morning we had to leave and catch the ferry.

The Kirk House B&B is walking distance to the town and easy to get to all the cool shops, bars and restaurants.

It's a wonderful place! A little slice of heaven on earth!

We will definitely be going back!

We stayed for 3 days but wish we could have stayed longer! Loved the morning coffee basket by your door at 7am, the homemade afternoon snacks, the wonderful breakfasts. Beautiful house and beautiful hosts! Doug and Roxy went above and beyond to make sure we had a perfect time. The house is located within walking distance to the town which is a big plus!

My son was getting married on Friday Harbor and he and his fiancee, decided on the Kirk House for our accomodations. We were a small wedding party of just 5 people! I absolutely enjoyed every minute of my stay. Roxy and Doug were the perfect hosts and made the stay very welcoming. The house is clean, well appointed with lovely antiques that complement each room. I stayed in the Garden room and loved it, there is even a special sitting area outside of the room that can be accessed through French doors. There are plenty of outside seating areas including a wrap around porch. The breakfasts were delicious and so were the afternoon snacks. Roxy and Doug went out of their way to make my son's wedding celebration special. The Kirk house is within a few minutes walk of Friday Harbor so you don't even need a car. I would highly recommend the Kirk house to anyone wanting to stay on Friday Harbor. Thank you again Roxy and Doug for making my son's wedding celebration so special by going above and beyond!!!

Just finished our three week vacation in the Pacific Northwest with friends. One of the highlights of our vacation was the wonderful stay at the Kirk House Bed & Breakfast for two nights at Friday Harbor, Washington. Roxy and Doug are gracious hosts and made our stay there so very accommodating. As frequent B&B guests, I would highly recommend the Kirk House B&B to any traveler visiting the famous San Juan Islands. I included a few pictures as well to highlight the history and beauty of the area. The breakfast was particularly impressive to include a parfait with superb homemade granola complemented with the freshest fruit to include blueberries. The historical home is appointed well and features antiques to complement the beauty all around. The Garden Room was very spacious and included all the modern conveniences you would expect. Even WiFi was provided and those fresh cookies were out of this world. On the last morning, we had to leave for the early ferry departure. Roxy and Doug accommodated our request with the best takeout breakfast I have ever had to include the famous granola. :) In sum, if we return to the Pacific Northwest again, we will surely stay at the Kirk House B&B. Thanks Roxy and Doug for a great stay. Best wishes.

Room Tip: We loved the Garden Room. It was located at the back of the Inn and faced a beautiful garden away fr...

We were fortunate enough to find this wonderful bed and breakfast! The hosts are so friendly and welcoming. You feel right at home. The craftsman styled home is beautifully decorated, well maintained, and very clean. The beds are comfortable and rooms are private. The breakfasts the hosts serve were wonderful! You don't leave hungry! The accommodations offer little to be desired. We would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a quiet and quaint get away which is centrally located to the main part of town.
