We only stayed at Hillside House for one night before a multi-day kayak trip but it was a great stay! We really enjoyed having some wine on the front porch with views of the harbor and loved that you could walk into town easily. Greg is a great cook and graciously made us a wonderful breakfast before we headed out... More

This was our first time staying in a true B&B with the owners that actually live there. The home was beautiful! Service was great - Gary was an exceptional cook and whipped up a delicious breakfast with local food and ingredients. Their cookies were to die for! Our room was under construction so we got bumped up to the Eagles... More

Our hosts were gracious and helpful, but not too overbearing. My husband and I aren't used to staying at a B&B but found Greg and Naomi the perfect hosts! Close to town, close to everything. Most comfortable bed and the bathtub- A-MAZING. Especially after a soaked whale watch, we crashed every night we were so exhausted. Breakfast was delightful and... More

My husband and I spent one night at the Hillside B&B while visiting Friday Harbor from Victoria, BC. What a gem. Everything was terrific from Greg and Naoni's hospitality to our lovely room, to the beautiful deck, to the delicious homemade breakfast in the morning. We'll definitely be back!

Stayed one night room with private bath. Stocked with plenty of towels and toiletries, comfy bed. Greg and Naoni the owners were a delight to visit with. Both are so pleasant! Great afternoon snacks. Wonderful warm breakfast. Couple blocks out of town in a quiet area made for better sleeping and a nice evening walk.

Location was very near the ferry landing, Room was perfect for you needs, The owners were very helpful on what to see and when to go visit the attraction. The suggested a play for us to attend with local actors and it was great. We stayed 3 days and the breakfast was special each day

We were greeted rather gruffly by (we presume) the owner, but after the payment formalities we discovered that the rooms are quite nice. Bright, pleasantly furnished, and attractive. The property has a nice view out over the waters surrounding the island, though neither of our rooms had windows facing that view. This place is, apparently, noted for its breakfasts but,... More

We arrived two hours before the advertised check in time. We were treated rudely and made to feel stupid that we were trying to check in early. The host wasn't accommodating to our circumstances and even said "We do not make special accommodations due to your poor planning". I understand we were early to check in, but the reaction from...

My wife and I started our honeymoon here, staying in the Eagles Nest (upstairs room). Greg and Naomi were very pleasant and helpful. On a small table behind the couch in the common area they put out things to do info, which is how we found out about the tours at Pelindaba and the ability to drive up Mount Grant... More

The owners are high efficient and dedicated to near perfection. They have a well equipped, beautiful building. While it is a little to far to walk into town, there is ample free parking in the business district. We had a private bath in our room, but I believe that a couple of rooms did not. Breakfast was excellent, Greg was... More
