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

Hillside House B&B We stayed in the Parisian room that was nicely furnished,modern and clean. I didn’t realize that the room was located downstairs and you would hear footsteps above the room. I’m a light sleep so every morning I would wake up to the creaking of the floor boards with every step the person above made. I would have... More

We stayed in the Captains quarters for three nights. Greg and Naoni were wonderful hosts. Breakfasts are delicious and we took full advantage of the wonderful deck in the evening, choosing to have wine, cheese and bread for dinner. It is a walk into town, but very manageable without luggage.

Very nice b&b off the main area in town. Very accommodating owners, large house and bedrooms. Very comfortable, great bed and bathroom. The house has a large porch and great view of the harbor. Recommend this location in Friday harbor for b&b.

First, be warned this B&B is not near either the town or the harbor. It is a nicely landscaped house efficiently run by Greg and Naoni. Greg is reserved and is a pretty decent chef. Naoni is gregarious and knows everything about Friday Harbor. We stayed in the Seattle Room with views of the bird arbor out back. Our friends... More
