“Excellent Visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Wonderful B&B! Doug and Roxy were lovely hosts, providing many nice touches in the room, lots of great advice for exploring and super restaurant suggestions! The breakfasts were amazing, and they even packed us a nice one to go so we could catch an early ferry. It was a memorable visit.

The Kirk House is a wonderful bed and breakfast. We arrived about dark and were greeted by Roxy and Doug. The phone system was down because of a cut line to the islands. Doug and Roxy are very friendly and provided us some history of the Kirk house. They provided us some suggestions for dinner and the Kirk House is close enough to down town to allow you to walk. The breakfast in the morning was delicious. The granola was especially good.

This beautiful bed and breakfast is warm, restful, and inviting. Roxy made the most delicious breakfasts and afternoon treats and was the ultimate host! She was so welcoming, providing us with excellent suggestions for restaurants and places to visit on what was our first trip to Friday Harbor. We stayed in the Veranda Room and enjoyed the fireplace and the most comfortable beds and linens we have ever experienced. From the filtered lemon water and lavender toiletries, to the morning basket of tea/coffee left at your door, the proprietors of this bed and breakfast have thought of everything. The only disappointment that my husband and I had was that we weren't able to stay longer! We will definitely return to the Kirk House.

Room Tip: Veranda room was very comfortable with a king size bed, a fireplace, and a door to the porch.

My husband and I stayed at the Kirk House B&B during the second half of our 2-year anniversary. San Juan Island is one of our favorite places to go because we enjoy spending time at Lime Kiln while watching the orcas. The Kirk House provided a wonderful place for us to relax when we weren't exploring the island and was very close to the ferry dock and great restaurants. Doug and Roxy were great hosts and made AMAZING breakfasts that we were able to enjoy at the table outside our room. We were so full each day that we weren't even hungry until close to dinner time when we enjoyed the snacks that were provided. They were very accommodating and even went above and beyond to provide us with dishes and utensils when we decided to pick dinner up and bring it back just to enjoy on the porch in the sunshine. We stayed in the Trellis Room and loved it. The bed was very comfortable and I enjoyed using the claw foot tub to relax in the evening. Thank you Doug and Roxy for your wonderful hospitality!

Room Tip: The claw foot tub in the Trellis Room was very nice!

We recently spent five much needed nights at the Kirk House Bed and Breakfast. What an incredibly restful time we had. Doug and Roxy are the ultimate hosts, easy to converse with and were very accommodating. Doug made a special granola for me with almonds as I am sensitive to pecans and walnuts, the normal ingredients in their wonderful, signature granola! Breakfast each morning was much anticipated and very delicious. Our bed was super comfortable too. Doug and Roxy went out of their way to make us feel comfortable, as if we were invited guests, not just paying ones. We left feeling that we had made new friends on San Juan Island.

Room Tip: The Trellis Room is great! Lots of light and the porch access was very convenient and a quiet place...

My wife made reservations at the Kirk House B&B for our first ever visit to Friday Harbor.
From the moment we walked in the door, Doug & Roxy welcomed us and made us feel right at home.
They are within easy walking distance of restaurants and other locations in Friday Harbor.
They helped with dinner reservations, provided advice on local sights to see and served a wonderful breakfast each morning.
Their coffee basket service in the morning was a favorite of my wife.
One helpful tip, if you like tacos, stop by Tia's Tacos a couple blocks east.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Veranda room and had a door to the outside that made it easy to come and go.

Doug met us in the parking lot when we arrived.... We arrived early, and didn't want to disrupt breakfast for an early check-in, so we called from the parking lot to let them know our car was legit and that we would be back later in the day to check in. Doug was right out, welcoming us to Friday Harbor, providing us with useful local information, and answering our questions. Doug and Roxy are the perfect B&B hosts; welcoming, friendly, helpful. They do a great job of anticipating your needs and taking care of them before they even arise. The room was clean and well stocked with anything that might be needed, including a pitcher of fresh lemon water and water bottles to take on the road. The breakfasts were gourmet, plentiful, delicious, and Doug does not allow your cup or glass to get empty! (Substantial) snacks are provided in the afternoon, Dvd's are available to take and watch in your room. Doug even dug up a pair of binoculars for me to use for whale watching when I forgot mine at home; although I found I didn't need them to see the plentiful and close in whales off Lime Kiln park. We especially appreciated the restaurant recommendations, which we got in conversation with Doug, but are also neatly organized in a binder in the living area to reference anytime of day. The B&B is a short walk from anyplace in Friday Harbor; the open air market, the ferry dock, art galleries, restaurants, moped rental, the meeting place for the Zip Line tours, etc. Be sure to stop in and see Popeye the blind seal at the harbor during your stay. Thank you Roxy and Doug! We will highly recommend your place. We hope to stay with you again some day!
