My husband and I have stayed in many Bed and Breakfasts all over the USA, and The Kirk House is unquestionably in our top 3 B+B of all time, if not the best. Doug and Roxy have the quintessential personalities that are ideal for innkeepers! They are warm and friendly, but give you your space when you need it; have... More

After a warm welcome, we were led to a warm spacious room with everything we could ask for an more. You can tell when B&B owners have done their homework. They had everything covered. And what a breakfast! I really enjoyed my private in-room coffee pot that the proprietor left outside our door in the morning.

How many hotels have you left with hugs all around? This is truly a unique place. The first thing I noticed was how clean everything is. The welcome was warm and friendly. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Advice on restaurants, activities and warm conversation made our stay incredible. Doug made 2 trips to the ferry as he found... More

We had a wonderful stay at this B&B and highly recommend this location for future visitors to San Juan Island! The house itself is a historic beauty and the rooms are comfortable, clean, and tastefully decorated. We really appreciated the extra attention to detail such as having Pelindaba lavender products in the bathroom and getting a basket of tea/coffee delivered... More

What a wonderful Fall get away! I didn't want to leave the house! It's a step back in time when graciousness and hominess ruled the day. Breakfasts were wonderful. I have to admit I wasn't too keen at first on the parfait for breakfast, but after the first day that's what I was looking forward to. Doug's homemade granola is... More

The Kirk House is a beautiful history home. The rooms are cozy with comfortable beds, soft linens, and many pillow choices (and I found one that was just right for me!). Doug & Roxy Kasman are lovely hosts. If you have plans to stay in Friday Harbor, seriously consider staying at this lovely gem.

Kirk House is located a couple of blocks from the shopping/dining area of Friday Harbor. It is an early 20th century home, with several nicely appointed rooms for visitors, with views of small gardens. The architecture and decor are in west coast arts and crafts styles. The rough-hewn granite fireplace alone is worth the visit. The couple who run it... More

So appreciate your kind words, and your time in writing the great review!! This house is pretty spectacular so thank you for appreciating it - no wonder they call it Arts & Crafts style as it was an art to build the original fireplaces, stain glass windows, and the arched room entrances. Hope your travels bring you this way again!! More

We spent Columbus Day weekend at the Kirk House, our first trip to San Juan Island. The B&B is based in a charming, restored, early-20th century bungalow, originally built for a Mr. Kirk who developed the lime quarries on the island. The 1990s conversion of the house to a B&B was done with an architect's guidance, leaving much of the... More
