“So nice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

My husband and I spent one night here and wish we could have stayed longer. All of the rooms are decorated nicely, are comfortable and very clean. The landscaping is beautiful with flowers, chairs and benches, and alpacas and goats in the adjacent field. It's such a peaceful setting but only a short 1.5 mild drive to Friday Harbor. We enjoyed the fresh baked cookies and juice in the evening and in the morning the breakfast was delicious. It was fresh squeezed OJ, fruit & yogurt parfait, stuffed French toast with berries, and chicken apple sausage - yummy! Highly recommend this place!

My wife and I attend a car show on the island every year and we love the Inn! We have stayed their for 4 years now and will keep coming back. Shaun and staff take great care of us and the breakfast is the best. Not to mention those fresh cookies each day. If you want a relaxing stay on San Juan Island, this is the place.

Room Tip: Every room is great.

My daughter and I spent three wonderful nights here August 8 - 11. We loved the inn, the hospitality, and the animals. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious, and the property lends itself to basking in the sun. I enjoyed the hammock on several days. Shaun was great about making dinner suggestions and reservations for us and helping us plan day hikes, whale watching and kayaking tours. Her recommendations were spot on. I agree a car is necessary but you need that anyway if you want to explore the island fully. We will be back. A wonderful place to stay.

We were really pleased with our stay at the Trumpeter Inn. Our Bay Laurel room was bright and airy and the private balcony made it really special. The Inn is located a least a mile off the road and is surrounded by beautiful farm land; it is a short drive to Friday Harbor. Shaun and her staff made our stay exceptional. We felt very welcomed and very comfortable. The kitchen is accessible to all her guests and is well stocked with homemade cookies, treats, juice and water.

There are chairs and benches around the property to sit and enjoy the outdoors. The miniature goats and alpacas in the field added to the fun. My husband was intrigued by Shaun's bird feeders! You will be fortunate to stay here.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful decorated. We especially liked the Bay Laurel room because it is large...

The inn is about 1.5 miles from the center of Friday Harbor and as we had a car that was not an issue. We liked the quiet,pastoral surroundings with views of the Olympic mountains across the adjacent fields. The rooms and public spaces are spotlessly clean. Everything appears new and fresh and Shaun and her staff were welcoming and helpful. The décor is simple and attractive without the kitsch often found at B&B's.The beds were very comfortable.The breakfasts were ample, creative and delicious as were the cookies baked fresh daily. Our only criticism/suggestion is one which we have found applies to B&B's in general. It appears that a breakfast that is rich in sugar, fats and calories is almost a competitive standard. This seems at odds with the trend to healthier eating habits. While simpler options may be available on request this choice is often not made visible and one is reluctant to ask for "special treatment". We really enjoyed our stay and would return on another visit to San Juan Island. It is our impression that The Inn will only be open in July and August in the future.

Room Tip: Our room, Rosemary, on the front of the house and the one above it had their own porch. On a future...

If you like a quiet and a scenic location combined by top notch service, great food and helpful staff then this is the place to stay. Minutes from Friday Harbor, yet out in the country. Family run business and it is hands on management. Will be anxios to get Shaun's cookie recipe cookbook. Guareenteed you will LOVE IT.

Room Tip: First or second floor with a balcony deck that overlooks the property.

Magnificent location, but out of town. excellent hospitality including pickup from the ferry and dropping us off in town. Excellent breakfast. Amazing hot tub! You need to have a car or if your willing to bike the hills of San Juan Island..
