We were adopting a shelter cat on San Juan Island so we booked an overnight at Tucker House Inn's Lizzie's Cabin, and it was a good experience. The cabin was nicely appointed, clean, comfortable, and the location couldn't be more convenient if you want to be in the heart of the charming town of Friday Harbor.

Hotel's Favourite
Beautiful suite, nicely appointed, and very clean. The Lopez Suite was perfect for our family of four. Beds are super comfortable and bedding was like a cloud. Hot breakfast delivered to door was delicious: hot biscuits, eggs, gravy, with homemade granola and yogurt parfait, juice and coffee. French champagne, cookies and gorgeous flower arrangement made my birthday super special. Definitely worth the splurge. Staff was accessible and very nice.

Hi Sarah, We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. The Lopez Suite is great for a family of four. Many times, guests miss their early morning walks, because they can't get out of bed...too comfortable!! We love that you described in detail, many of our amenities that make a stay at our Inn so special. We do hope you will return and allow us to pamper you one more time!

I came up from Seattle to visit friends who live on the island and needed something dog-friendly near the ferry, and something ground level because my buddy is a senior citizen and has a hard time getting around. This inn was exactly what I needed, plus so cozy and relaxing....it was perfect. The gourmet breakfasts were absolutely delicious and the service was excellent. I will definitely be a repeat client anytime I stay in FH! Highly recommend.

Once again Tucker House went all out to give us the quiet and enjoyable experience we consistently have there. Incredible breakfast (chef's choice) delivered to our suite each morning, wonderful interaction with staff for questions and lovely accommodations within walking distance of shops and restaurants. It's why this is our favorite place to stay whenever we visit Friday Harbor.

Great staff, wonderful room with a great fireplace huge tub and comfortable bed and pillows. I had to leave super early so they prepared a vegetarian breakfast bag. Their coffee is excellent. Checkin was a breeze. This is my third or fourth time staying there and it will not be my last.

Cozy little room with a kitchenette. The fireplace warms it up quickly. The Goose Pond room has a very comfortable king with wonderful, high-end bedding. That is so rare; I delighted in it. There is also a television. The bath, although small, has a great shower and was stocked with wonderful soaps, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, air freshener, even q tips. In the morning our breakfast was delivered with what we ordered. I could have no eggs so mine was a chef scramble of types of potatoes, onion, mushrooms, some small Brussel spouts, with sausage on the side. It was delicious. I also had fresh orange juice. My spouse had an omelette with his potato mix. A small container of milk is in the refrigerator. Various teas and house-made cocoa deck the cupboards. Freshly ground coffee is also left for using in the French press. We will definitely return to this romantic inn.

Shaw cottage with 4 over 70 years old adults was the perfect solution. Easy up hill access to the ferry, loved the parking lot entrance short cut to the entrance instead of climbing the hill all the way and yet the lovely little patio and surrounding trees still make you feel like you’re not on the road. No steps ground floor but safe. The bathroom plumbing was very up-to-date great shower effective toilet nothing old here in the kitchen was also remodeled and contains all we needed. I loved all the natural light and yet you felt like you could leave the blinds open because of the patio and green space. Perfect amount of in person text and email contacts from the management making sure you were OK. Great breakfast and they even packed to go breakfast to leave early for the ferry the next day. Could’ve used a full-size mirror on the wall somewhere since you are sharing a bathroom but it was nice to have an extra sink in the kitchen for brushing teeth etc. You only get two keys but we made that work. Relatively quiet location although close to town, no noise from town but you could hear the ferry announcements if you have the windows open which we enjoyed since the weather was perfect.

Hello Danielle! It was a pleasure hosting you and your family at the Shaw Suite recently! Conveniently located just a few short blocks away from the heart of downtown Friday Harbor, The Tucker House Inn is a perfect place to setup basecamp for all of your island activities! We love how you described the Shaw Suite - with one queen bed, a day bed and a twin bed, this really is perfect for families, couples and even fido!

Stayed for two nights at the Tucker Inn, in the Middleton Suite in SJI. great location, near ferry and with free on site parking. Very close to stores and shops. Very walkable! Loved our suite. Kitchenette, dining area and living area with a gas fireplace, bedroom with a very comfy bed and nice linens. Made unwinding after a day of hiking and enjoying the island so comfy and cozy. Breakfast each morning was hearty and delicious, and delivered to your door. Cookies delivered each day as a snack as well. Would definitely come back again! Book a stay, you won't be disappointed!!!
