Juniper Lane Guest House is just outside Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. It is walkable if you didn't pack the kitchen sink (about a mile and a half from the ferry) but there is also parking available. There are two one bed bedrooms upstairs, both with ensuite baths, and both very comfortable with full size windowseats that can sleep an extra person. Downstairs there is another one bed room which shares a hall bath with a bunk bedroom, plus another bunk bedroom with its own private bath (in the hall). The common area is very comfortable and the shared kitchen is spacious and fully equipped, including quite decent coffee and an assortment of tea. The entire inn is impeccably clean. (The "no shoes in the house" rule helps.)
Juniper is the innkeeper and is very responsive to requests. If the room is not rented the night before (or night after) your stay, she can sometimes accommodate early check in / late check out.
I have stayed twice, once with my husband and once with my adult daughter, and both times were very enjoyable. I have not stayed in the summer when the rooms are likely to be filled, so I don't know about noise levels then, but both times I've stayed there has been at least one other room occupied and there was no noise problem.
