Recent Friday Harbor reviews

  • A special place on a special island

    "The glowing reviews about this home are all true. My husband and I stayed here for over a month in January and fell in love with the house, the VIEW, the wood stove, the walks, the eagles and otters and foxes and more. Karen and Norris were excellent hosts - available but never intrusive. Any issues we encountered were immediately remedied - newspaper/kindling for the wood stove was provided, a shelf in the fridge missing a railing was quickly ordered and replaced. Honestly, nothing was missing from this home and we would have loved to have stayed indefinitely. January was a great month to go. It's quiet yet restaurants and stores are still open. Beaches and hills are your own to walk. Animals are easy to find with so few people about. We miss the peace and quiet already. Thank you Karen and Norris!"

  • Wonderful Accommodations!

    "I looked high and low for a place to stay in Friday Harbor during the high season with no luck. Finally, after checking with VRBO we found this wonderful studio apartment. It completely exceeded our expectations. It was clean, comfortable, spacious and modern. It's a quick 5 minute drive into town. We were able to buy groceries and fix our breakfast and lunches in the kitchen to take on our daily adventures around the island. The owners live on the property and were so friendly and helpful with any questions we had and recommendations on things to do. They made us feel like family. We loved our stay so much that we may make it an annual trip. Don't pass up this wonderful rental for your Friday Harbor visit!!!!!"

  • Waterhouse, Take Me Away.........

    "As I am hiding in my bedroom back in Texas, listening to a house full of shrieking teenagers, I am transporting myself back in time (one month) to the Waterhouse. My husband and I stayed for three nights. We holed up at the Waterhouse except for a few excursions into town to shop at King's Market (we did stop there right off the ferry but needed to add a little to our groceries once we decided we were definitely staying put), antique and used book shopping, our Christmas ornament for our travel tree, and finding Joe to make my beautiful meat and cheese boards (which is a whole 'nother story). We had all the windows open the first day due to our luggage unloading and unpacking but quickly cranked them back down and had the fireplace going, which quickly got lit every morning for coffee and was great to have on at night with wine. We were able to prepare wonderful meals due to all the utensils available and that wickedly cool propane cookstove! At our daily treks to the cove, we found starfish, sea glass, awesome driftwood, and beautiful rocks. Oh, and the grass around the property was such a lovely emerald green! Eagles, ducks, sea lions (at least that's what my husband thinks he saw), and deer came to visit us, too. The house is situated on the property so that all of the rooms have a great view of the ocean right outside the windows. It was great to wake up and look out the window first thing laying in bed to see the water. I only wish we could have experienced an awesome lightning storm and/or whales. I already feel relaxed just picturing all of this again. Suzanne was awesome!! Thank you so much for being so trusting with your property to allow people to visit and enjoy it! We will be back."

  • Artists haven heaven!

    "7 fellow artists and I chose Rose Mountain Lodge when our usual Friday Harbor favorite of 17 years was booked and loved it so much, we've already reserved our slot for next year! The house is so spacious, and comfortable, we looked forward to our evenings at home after painting all day, cozying up with a wood fire in the beautiful fireplace, and watching the deer in the front yard with our morning coffee. Bonnie & Ken have done a wonderful job in creating a magical retreat on San Juan Island!"
