Delightful Craftsman style home with beautifully landscaped grounds that is charming, welcoming and comfortable. Allen and Debbie are great hosts and Debbie's breakfasts are delicious!

We spent three nights at the Kirk House in the Veranda Room in late July. It is a beautful, historic arts & crafts home. They even have a ton of documentation on the history of the house in each room, which is interesting. Allen & Debbie were most gracious and breakfast was wonderful. The started each breakfast with a fruit and yogurt parfait, with their own homemade granola. After that, there was a delicious hot entree. A large jug of fresh juice was also on the table with unlimited coffee. The room was nicely sized with a huge shower in the bath. There was a door that opened onto the wrap around porch with loads of seating. They even furnish a refrigerator in the lobby area, if you wanted to keep wine or something else cold. It was great - very convenient to town. We had a great stay.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Kirk House in Friday Harbor on 7/26 for 2 nights. We fancy ourselves as being experienced B&B guest and enjoy the B&B experience. We had such a warm and wonderful experience with Debbie and Allan and would recommend staying at the Kirk House. The breakfast was delicious and the hospitality was top notch. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it was one of the best we have ever experienced. Debbies enthusiasm is contagious and her warmth is such a comfort. Thanks for the wonderful stay and relaxation!!

The Kirk House was the perfect place to unwind and experience the island. Debbie and Allen were the perfect hosts and paid such attention to detail. The breakfasts were excellent and kept us full until dinner. The house is a beautifully, restored craftsman. We couldn't get enough of the wraparound porch.

I stayed at the Kirk House for 5 nights in the Garden Room and loved it. The home is very well-preserved historically and the landscaping is beautiful. I felt very comfortable and at home during my stay, and the breakfasts were probably the best I've ever had. Debbie and Alan were great hosts. Highly recommended!

We stayed at Kirk House for a weekend get away. We are not used to the B&B idea so it was all new to us. We really liked that each room had it's own private entrance/deck and it's own private bathroom. We enjoyed the sunny afternoons on our deck and the wonderful breakfasts.

The Kirk House provides the charm of yesteryear without the inconveniences. It has a lovely setting within easy walking distance of downtown Friday Harbor. There are some private outdoor sitting areas with tables and chairs to enjoy the gardens. There is also an inviting main living room where you can relax and enjoy your breakfast. We stayed in the Garden Room which has a light, sunny outlook and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. We have also stayed in the Fireplace room which is also nice. There is easy access to the rooms and few stairs. Check out the original glass bird bath type creations.
