“Wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

My wife and I spent an evening at The Kirk House a couple of weeks ago. We were so very pleased. The historic house and accommodations were beautiful and tasteful, the owners so friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was delicious. We felt like special guests in their home, but had all the privacy we needed. The location was ideal, just a few blocks from the Harbor, but away from traffic. The breakfast was amazing, with the best yogurt-fruit-granola I have ever had. Then there was apple-caramel French toast. Most cherished, though, was the hospitality. We highly recommend The Kirk House.

Right near downtown, but not on a busy main streets. Doug and Roxy have made each room to keep you perfectly relaxed during your stay, and they really care about you enjoying your whole visit to the island, not just the time spent at the B&B.

Room Tip: Terrace room has outside access as well as privacy and a full bath.

We came to Friday Harbor specifically to experience our first Bed and Breakfast stay. The Kirk House was the best possible choice we could have made. The home is beautiful and the hosts Doug and Roxy are amazing at what they do. They are friendly and helpful, helping us with restaurant and activity choices. Roxy is an AMAZING cook! Doug and Roxy listened to what we said in casual conversation and applied what they learned to serve us better. Our stay was simply perfect!

If you are looking for a place to spend a quiet weekend, or a home away from home for an entire week, I cannot imagine a better choice than the Kirk House. A short walk from everything Friday Harbor has to offer, the Kirk House offers personal service, great attention to detail, and outstanding food. My wife and I were most impressed by the cleanliness of the house and room. The owners, Roxy and Doug, put a great deal of themselves into their B&B. They want their guests to have a wonderful time, and it shows!

I'm new to the B&B experience, but I couldn't imagine a better first than the Kirk House. Roxy and Doug were gracious hosts and the Inn was everything I could have hoped for in a romantic getaway. It's a pleasant walk from the ferry terminal and close to town. We stayed in the large suite with fireplace and bath and could not have been happier. The bed and linens were amazingly comfortable. The living room and fireplace were warm and inviting. We also got to meet fellow travelers and the morning coffee service and breakfast were AMAZING! Thank you for an unforgetable stay and thank you for making it special. Nicky and I wish you all the best and look forward to staying with you again!

Staying at the Kirk House is like traveling back in time. The house is over 100 years old and depicts an elegant style (both inside and out) from a time long gone that has been impeccably maintained. One can just imagine the original owner, Peter Kirk, having his afternoon tea in front of the fireplace in winter or out on the generous porch in summer. Doug and Roxy attended to the minutest of details to make me feel very welcome and at home from the fresh-baked cookies and signature coffee upon arrival to the hot coffee waiting for me at my door the next morning and the gourmet breakfast that followed. l liked that the house is close to downtown (and the ferry) yet in a quiet setting. I stayed in the Garden Room and found it enchanting with its plush pillows and French doors to the garden. It was very enjoyable to experience a bit of Pacific Northwest history by staying in the home of one its pioneers.

Doug and Roxy were the perfect hosts. My husband and I stayed in the Trelllis room which was bright and spacious with a private bath. This home was spotless. Special touches included fresh cut flowers, coffee delivered to our door in the morning, and lavender soaps and bath products. Home cooked breakfast was fabulous and Doug and Roxy even had treats set out in the afternoon; one evening cheese and wine. The Kirk House is convenient to town -- close enough to walk. We highly recommend.
