Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 August 2017

My husband and I visited for his birthday, and we could not have found a better spot. Easy walk to everything, easy parking and bike parking, lovely room, comfy bed, lots of snacks, and delicious food. The hosts were incredibly nice, and made our visit so enjoyable. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We loved our room with a private garden.

We could not have asked for a better place to stay. We had everything that we wanted; quiet comfortable room, wonderful breakfast, and gracious host and hostess. I loved the house and it is very conveniently located. I hope to visit again.

That B&B is the most beautiful one you will ever see. The house has a great style with attention to details that make life so good. The hosts are so charming and helpful, careful to make our stay the best possible. Breakfast is very good and served with many smiles. Thanks Doug and Roxy, we will be back !

We found the Kirk House on Trip Advisor and booked it with no knowledge of the island. It is not in the downtown Friday Harbor area but we found that to be a plus. Not walkable with luggage from the ferry docks but cabs available and we rented a car. Beautiful home from 1920's and very comfortable furnishings. Innkeepers very helpful and breakfast was delicious. Would highly recommend

So appreciate you taking the time to write the review!! Just like you guys, our guests are looking at tripadvisor to help make the decision on where to stay. When there are so many places to stay, it becomes a little hard to narrow the choice down. We are so thankful for our guests that write the reviews!!! And we strive to make all those wonderful things our guests say about us better with each new guest!!!! Hope to see you again one day!!!

We can't say enough about Doug and Roxy. From the moment we arrived to the Kirk House we were treated as though we were family. They greeted us with big smiles and were so happy to see us. They were very accommodating throughout our stay. The attention to detail was unlike any other bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at. They have a library of books and movies that we could use at our leisure. Roxy filled up a filtered water pitcher with lemon each day in our room for us to enjoy. Our room, the Garden Room, was nicely decorated, including a very comfortable queen bed, high ceilings, walk in shower with a high ceiling, great for a tall guest, beautiful stained glass transom windows above the bedroom door, bedroom window and french doors leading to the private garden. We traveled to the island on a small plane and were limited to the amount of clothing and accessories we could bring. Doug and Roxy supplied each room with shampoo, conditioner, body wash and bar soap made out of lavender from the island's Lavender Farm. That was so nice! if guests didn't like lavender Doug and Roxy provided other brands of toiletries. They added a nice touch in our room with a small dish of chocolate that was refilled each day. Each morning Doug would bring a basket of fresh brewed delicious coffee to our door. We would then enjoy that coffee outside of our room in the private garden. The Kirk House has beautiful gardens with mature perennials, that Doug maintains. Breakfast was served promptly at 9am each morning. Breakfast consisted of a yogurt parfait with homemade granola and fresh berries. It was delicious!! Roxy would make either an egg dish and a baked good to accompany that, or she would make a bread dish such as french toast, blueberry pancakes or a souffle accompanied with bacon or sausage. Each morning she would ask would you like orange juice or blueberry pomegranate juice. I always choose the blueberry pomegranate, it was delicious!!. My husband created his own blend of the orange juice and blueberry pomegranate. Roxy and Doug did not mind one bit. Each afternoon Roxy would place homemade sweet treats and fruit on the buffet table in the parlor for all guests to enjoy. They provided hot coffee and tea throughout the day as well. The Kirk House B & B is a very personal setting with only 4 rooms. Each morning we met new people from various parts of the country. It was nice to meet new people. Once Roxy and Doug were done serving us and the guests were nearly done with their breakfast, they would join us in conversation. We really enjoyed that. Friday Harbor is such a tranquil place with really nice people, including Doug and Roxy. We hated to leave. We miss Doug and Roxy. We will return in a year or two to stay at the Kirk House B & B and see Doug and Roxy again.

Room Tip: The Garden Room is sunny and quiet, with french doors that lead to a beautiful private garden area.

We hated to have you leave!!! It was so fun to see you guys sitting out in the garden area each morning, enjoying San Juan Coffee Roasting Co.'s Kirk House Blend, and contemplating what adventure your would do that day. You guys saw and did more on the Islands in your days here than we have the whole six years we've been the proprietors of this wonderful place. We are so looking forward to your next visit!!!!

The room was beautifully decorated, the bed was comfy, and the toiletries were locally made lavender products. The hosts were amazingly considerate: being there to greet me on my late arrival, leaving a tea basket outside of my door every morning (to facilitate my morning tea and book in my private corner of the garden), beautiful breakfasts (with consideration of dietary preferences and restrictions), afternoon snacks, and allowing my to leave my luggage with them on my last day while I continued to adventure on the island. The next time I am back in Friday Harbor, this is definitely where I would choose to stay!

Room Tip: All rooms have a garden view, private bathroom

I will echo the other reviews - we really enjoyed this 4 bedroom B&B. The ability to walk to and from Friday Harbor was a benefit that I did not appreciate when making the original booking since I was unfamiliar with the layout of San Juan Island.

Doug and Roxy are delightful - attentive but not intrusive. Delicious breakfast is served promptly at 9AM but if you are leaving earlier they will pack you a to-go bag. I wished the Trellis Room windows opened for ventilation, but we opened the screen door to the delightful porch each night for a few minutes which quickly cooled off the room.

Thank you for taking your time to write such a good review!!! We love when guests like to walk, and can get to just about anywhere from the B & B!! And bicycles, mopeds, and cars can be rented if you find it necessary to get around. The Islands also have shuttles that can deliver you to whatever wonderful sights you want to see. Those shuttles operate through most of September. Come back and see us and this wonderful Island!!!
