Thank you both for such a wonderful stay! I stayed here for 4 nights a couple of weeks ago, and it was perfect in every way. The room was clean, tidy, well decorated and very peaceful- with a lovely view out the window of an apple tree. The breakfasts were impressive and expertly cooked, ranging from fresh fruit salad, fresh... More

We came here for a night after a four day kayaking and camping tour and I have to say that the hot shower and comfy bed were a godsend! The Fountain Room was large and had a very comfortable bed, although the bathroom is teeny tiny. Not a big deal for me but my 6'4 husband felt very cramped. All... More

We had a lovely one night stay in the Robin's Nest room during our photography visit to San Juan Island. The room felt like you were staying at Grandma's and had books, games and cute homemade touches throughout. There were some shortbread cookies in our room upon our late arrival. There is no A/C but the open windows are sufficient... More

We stayed just one night in the fountain room. The bed was so comfortable and the breakfast in the morning was delicious. They even made me oatmeal because I was allergic to what they had prepared hat morning. My favorite part was all of the lavender soaps, body wash, and shampoo local to the island. The house is in a... More

We chose this B&B mainly because it was pet friendly and we were extremely pleased with our stay. They made us and our dog feel very welcomed and even have dog treats out to share. We stayed in the Sunflower room which is perfect for a couple including a comfy bed and plenty of towels. The owners are very nice... More

The Argyle House is located just out of the Downtown Friday Harbor area, but it is easily walkable. We brought our little dog who was more than welcome. We stayed in the Sunflower room which came complete with one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in away from home. The gentleman / owner inquired if we had... More

I was highly skeptical of staying at a bed and breakfast; it was my husband's idea. We stayed there and I was happy that we did. The owner, Art, upgraded us to The Honeymoon Cottage and we were thrilled. We had our own private residence away from it all and I loved the peace and quiet that it gave us.... More

ArgyleHouseBB, Owner at Argyle House Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review

We believe the person writing this review was actually a last-minute guest of the people who actually booked their room, and for whom we made a last-minute accommodation. This may be explain why the guest was so disappointed with the fact that our B&B is in town, rather than in nature. We’d suggest that if that’s what this person wanted,... More
