“Wonderful place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at Kirk house- it's very convenietly located and very comfortable. The host and hostess are great, we really liked the afternoon treats. Breakfast was great. It's a little pricey but average for the area! we stayed in the Trellis room which I would recommend if you are a bath person- she has the bath set up like a spa! But if your a shower person the other rooms have a little more space to move around. All rooms are well appointed and all have private entrances to the wonderful wrap around porch or back yard. Lots of romatic places to cuddle up!

If we ever get back to Friday Harbor, we will definitely stay here again. The Kirk House is a wonderful bed & breakfast. It is located on a quiet street, just a short walk to all the shops and restaurants. The house itself is beautiful, clean and well maintained. Built in 1907, it has lots of history and beautiful woodwork throughout. I recommend the Veranda room. It was very large and has it's own private entrance.

The owners Doug and Roxy work tirelessly to provide every amenity and comfort you can think of; from their gourmet breakfast with award-winning fruit and yogurt parfait, to non-stop homemade snacks, fruits, pasties and specially blended coffee and teas. When you return to your room after your island activities, you will find more snacks and an always-full pitcher of ice water. This is in addition to what is offered in the dining room. We were always so full from the breakfast, we didn't need to eat lunch. I was especially grateful for all the gluten-free foods they prepared for me. That was additional time and expense for them, but goes to show how much they care about their guest.

The Kirk House is a wonderful place to stay, but the real prize is being the guest of Doug and Roxy as they make you feel so welcome. They are just the nicest people and they know how to run a B&B. My husband and I have stayed in B&B's in the South and in Europe, but the Kirk House, run by Doug and Roxy, is by far the richest experience we have ever had at one. It is a destination in itself.

Room Tip: The Veranda room has a huge shower and a private entrance.

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!!!
