Our family of 5 (children aged 8,6,4) from the UK stayed in the Log Cabin, which we chose because it was the only room available that would sleep 5. We knew it would be cosy but when we had squeezed the folding bed in (slightly under a table) there wasn't much room left at all. The log cabin decor was quaint but slightly tired and in need of investment for the pricing level of the room. We were pleased to be provided with a range of snacks as well as milk and orange juice and the fresh home baked cookies every day were a treat! In the kitchen the saucepans were quite worn, and there were only 3 water glasses and 1 wine glass, so we had to use mugs which is not what we would have expected for the price of the accomodation.
On the first morning we had breakfast in our room as the sittings in the breakfast room were full. This arrived 20 minutes later than the arranged time. On the second and third mornings we ate in the breakfast room and the meal was delicious, varied and really set us up for the day. Unfortunately although the host kindly provided more child friendly options for our children, they were not as open to the new foods as us adults so we ended up supplementing with food from the supermarket for them. It would have been good if some simple cereals or bread had been available for them to choose.
All in all it was a good place to stay - the location is handy within Friday Harbour because we could walk everywhere but were not so central it was noisy. And our host kindly arranged a whale watching visit for us ahead of our trip so we were guaranteed a place. If the standard of the room and fittings had been as high as the breakfasts, it would have been worth the premium price.
