The Kirk House was excellent in every way. The hosts, Doug and Roxy, are extremely gracious and welcoming. They were friendly and social while striking the perfect balance of allowing privacy. The house and our room were very, very clean but did not smell like chemical cleaning products, which I appreciated. We stayed in the garden room, and it had... More

This B&B has four rooms, all in the same corner of the building. Our room was quaint with a small patio outside its doors. The location is great. It is 2-3 blocks from downtown, easily walkable. The grounds are lovely as is the common living room/dining area. No detail has been forgotten. The hosts Doug and Roxy are warm, lovely... More

From the moment we made our reservations, to the moment we arrived at the Kirk House, to the day we departed, Doug and Roxy were so nice and accommodating to us and the couple with whom we were traveling. Great location, close to the harbor; comfortable room, comfortable bed; delicious breakfasts. This couple does a great job keeping this sweet... More

Kirk House ties with my favorite B&B on the opposite coast of the U.S. Doug and Roxy are incredible hosts; they take great pride in everything they do and are accommodating beyond belief. Their property is well located within a five-ten minute walk of town, so you won't have to be frustrated with Friday Harbor's daytime parking challenges. My husband... More

The location is in Friday Harbor, away from the bustle of the marina, but only a < 10 minute walk to it. Each room is different; all seem comfy. The best part are the owners, Doug and Roxy. They are very friendly, interesting, and have great suggestions for both touring/sightseeing and for restaurants. (They have an excellent restaurant directory that... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. Loved that you mentioned the restaurant menu book - with so many great places to eat on the Island, we had to come up with a way for our guests to find the right spot for them. Hope to see you again one of these days!!!! More

My husband and I stayed here for our first B&B experience. We didn't really know what to expect, however, I can say that it surpassed our expectations. Doug and Roxy are an amazing couple and delightful hosts. It felt like staying with family/friends and we were both sad to depart and say goodbye. The property is beautifully maintained and our...

This place is a "must stay" place in Friday Harbor. My wife and I visited our daughter who was taking graduate classes at the UW facility there in the summers of 2015 and 2016. We flew into Seattle, drove to Anacortes, and took the Washington State Ferry to Friday Harbor. The Kirk House is located just a few blocks from... More

Just spent 4 nights here and hated to leave. The place and owners are warm and welcoming. Breakfast is a highlight. Hosts customize dishes to account for dietary preferences. Rooms are spotless, have lots of thoughtful touches, but not overdone. One of the best B&B experiences we have had.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at The Kirk House, in the Trellis Room. We enjoyed the lovely room, including the covered porch with rocking chairs. There is a "parlor" for all guests to enjoy where freshly baked snacks are served in the afternoon, and a delicious breakfast in the morning. The entire home is furnished beautifully in the... More

The Kirk House B&B is a charming and comfortable place to stay. All the amenities that are important to us are covered. The hosts, Roxy and Doug, are extraordinary and have a real talent relating to people. When it was time to leave, we felt we were leaving our best friends. We heartily recommend a stay and will certainly return.
