Great location, right in the thick of things in Friday Harbor. Made catching the ferry back (with a car) super easy, and I was happy to have the car on the island to explore. Our family of 5 stayed for 3 nights in the downstairs suite called Victoria's Flower Garden. It was spacious, with two good sized bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living space with a pull-out sofa, and a kitchen with a sun-room/eating space. Plenty of room for the family to not drive each other crazy. Check-in was easy (we arrived during their normal window), fresh cookies delivered daily while we were out, breakfasts delivered to our suite daily were delicious and had plenty of food. I liked being able to cook dinners there, and we made use of the kitchen. It was well stocked with essential plates, silverware, pots, pans & cooking utensils. There was loose-leaf tea with appropriate pouches; they even had fresh milk and orange juice in the fridge, and a Brita pitcher for filtered water.
We were on an extended road trip, so one of the things I appreciated most was the ability to do laundry. Guests all have access to the laundry machines and the Inn provides detergent and dryer sheets. In our suite, the laundry room was basically attached, through one locked door. Super convenient.
If you're visiting San Juan Island, whales are best seen on the west side (a 10 - 15 min drive), or by kayak or whale watching boats. They've got a network in place so everyone out whale watching knows where the whales are. We saw Orca the very first day there from one of the parking areas on the west side, and then again on a super 1/2 day kayak trip with Discovery Sea Kayaks. Awesome place to visit for whale watching.
