The Kirk House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 17 Friday Harbor B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 July 2016

The Kirk House was excellent in every way. The hosts, Doug and Roxy, are extremely gracious and welcoming. They were friendly and social while striking the perfect balance of allowing privacy. The house and our room were very, very clean but did not smell like chemical cleaning products, which I appreciated. We stayed in the garden room, and it had a lovely private patio area; there were also fresh flowers in the room and nice bath products (both from the island). The breakfast was incredible; it tasted great, the presentation was beautiful, and the portions were generous. The house is gorgeous and very well maintained; if you like historic houses, it is a must see. We would definitely stay at Kirk House again.

Room Tip: The Garden Room was Really Nice

This B&B has four rooms, all in the same corner of the building. Our room was quaint with a small patio outside its doors. The location is great. It is 2-3 blocks from downtown, easily walkable. The grounds are lovely as is the common living room/dining area. No detail has been forgotten.
The hosts Doug and Roxy are warm, lovely people who made sure we were very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious: fantastic granola parfaits, with an egg bake and fresh muffins one day, and caramel apple french toast the next day.
A relaxing stay - we hope to go again someday.

From the moment we made our reservations, to the moment we arrived at the Kirk House, to the day we departed, Doug and Roxy were so nice and accommodating to us and the couple with whom we were traveling. Great location, close to the harbor; comfortable room, comfortable bed; delicious breakfasts. This couple does a great job keeping this sweet little spot clean and comfortable for all their guests! They even packed our breakfasts for us to take with us when we had to leave early to catch the ferry to British Columbia. Such nice folks in every way!

Kirk House ties with my favorite B&B on the opposite coast of the U.S. Doug and Roxy are incredible hosts; they take great pride in everything they do and are accommodating beyond belief. Their property is well located within a five-ten minute walk of town, so you won't have to be frustrated with Friday Harbor's daytime parking challenges. My husband and I spent three nights in the Trellis Room of this 1907 property. Great breakfasts, charming veranda. Wish we lived closer to avail ourselves more often of their wonderful hospitality in this laid back, lovely town.

The location is in Friday Harbor, away from the bustle of the marina, but only a < 10 minute walk to it. Each room is different; all seem comfy. The best part are the owners, Doug and Roxy. They are very friendly, interesting, and have great suggestions for both touring/sightseeing and for restaurants. (They have an excellent restaurant directory that gives ratings and menus. A highlight are the breakfasts - very sumptuous and varied. Also great mid-afternoon snacks. We would definitely return - highly recommended!

Room Tip: Can get a picture of the rooms on-line. All seem nice, all are different.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. Loved that you mentioned the restaurant menu book - with so many great places to eat on the Island, we had to come up with a way for our guests to find the right spot for them. Hope to see you again one of these days!!!!

My husband and I stayed here for our first B&B experience. We didn't really know what to expect, however, I can say that it surpassed our expectations. Doug and Roxy are an amazing couple and delightful hosts. It felt like staying with family/friends and we were both sad to depart and say goodbye. The property is beautifully maintained and our room was very spacious (Arbor room). Breakfast was delicious and both Doug and Roxy go out of their way to make sure you have had enough to eat and a pleasant time with the other guests. We will stay here again if we come back to San Juan Island. I can't say enough nice things!

This place is a "must stay" place in Friday Harbor. My wife and I visited our daughter who was taking graduate classes at the UW facility there in the summers of 2015 and 2016. We flew into Seattle, drove to Anacortes, and took the Washington State Ferry to Friday Harbor. The Kirk House is located just a few blocks from the ferry terminal. The rooms are all beautifully decorated and the beds were very comfortable. My favorite time, of course, was breakfast time. Doug and Roxy take special care in preparing our meals. They have a menu with recipes and they will do everything to try to accommodate your special tastes. Make sure you try to plan your trip way in advance and make your reservations at least six months before your visit. For you without vehicles, this B and B is just a 10 minute walk from the ferry terminal and minutes from the many shops and restaurants. On Saturday, there is a farmers market in the center of town where you can buy locally grown fruit and vegetables along with pastries, cheeses, and other food items. During the summer, weekends do get booked up very quickly. We stayed from a Friday through a Tuesday and we stayed in one room on Friday and Saturday, and moved to another room on Sunday and Monday because others guests had booked before us. The Kirk House is very special.
