The positive, the beds were very comfortable, and the room was very clean. We were going o arriving late and contacted them twice to notify them, as they ask, first did not look at email, then phone message was not passed on. The food was ok, coffee good though. Big down side, the dog somewhat charged my daughter, then arriving... More

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

We are profoundly sorry for our dog Lady's "performance" when our guests were here. We do advertise our B&B as a dog-friendly place, and many guests have enjoyed interacting with Lady. However, she has taken to some unpleasant habits in the past couple of weeks. We cleaned up the mess as soon as we were aware of it, and are... More

Found this place at the last minute… owner was very friendly and accommodating. Very nice room and wonderful breakfast in the morning. Great location too - near enough to walk to any place in Friday Harbor.

We really enjoyed staying at the Argyle House B&B. We came over on the ferry without a car and the innkeepers were nice enough to let us leave our stuff there before check-in and even use the refrigerator. When we came back after dinner we had a nice time in in hot tub. The breakfast was very good! We were... More

The grounds are beautiful and include an urban farm, the rooms are thoughtfully provisioned with magazines, but beware the steep stairs to the upstairs rooms. Delicious breakfast with gluten-free options, and a very congenial and funny host. Will come again.

Argyle House proprietors are so nice and accommodating. Two couples stayed in rooms upstairs-no elevator. Quaint, nicely decorated rooms and full baths. Very comfortable but relatively small although certainly large enough if you're basically using it to sleep. Full breakfast is served at a leisurely pace around a table large enough for all the guests. We stayed two nights and... More

This was a perfect place to stay for our anniversary. The room was very cute and well decorated, obviously with thoughtful consideration. Everything was clean, which is the most important factor for us when we decide where to stay. The family that runs this B&B is hospitable, but also easy-going. They even let us borrow some of their dvd's during... More

We stayed in the Marilee Cottage which is a separate building from the main house. The owners were very pleasant; friendly and helpful without being overpoweringly present; they also had a charming daughter. They allow dogs which worried me a little when I booked; I was concerned the room might smell of dog. It didn't (thought it did smell somewhat... More

Stayed here for work with a coworker; one of few places in Friday Harbor that offered two beds. The hospitality of the owners were great as they were able to accommodate breakfast for us easily; breakfast was delicious and they offered a good variety. Owners are very friendly and accommodating. But watch out for the family dog; she likes to... More

My fiancee and I stayed at the Argyle House for 2 nights in the honeymoon cottage. It was our first time at a bed and breakfast (we usually go the hotel route). It was a great, quiet little room that was the perfect size and had a minifridge for our use. It was only a 5 minute walk into downtown... More

I like a B&B that has personality, and this one definitely had it. Where else would you get to play with Guinea Pigs? Interesting house with beautiful grounds. Friendly and helpful owners. A few blocks walk into town, but we had a car so it was no big deal.
