Recent Friday Harbor reviews

  • Comfort, Cleanliness & Perfect Downtown Location

    "Just enjoyed 3 nights in this very comfortable nicely appointed 1 bedroom cottage, located a block from the ferry and downtown Friday Harbor. For those of you who will be a "walk on" on the ferry and not have a car, it's a perfect location. Right below the cottage is a bakery (although unfortunately it was closed for the winter) and immediately adjacent is a restaurant called the Coho (rated quite high on TripAdvisor/Yelp). The San Juan Island Cheese Company, serving artisan cheeses, wines and breads) is directly across the street (we had some fabulous smoked gouda there), and King's Market is a block away. The cottage was very clean and management has provided everything you'd ever need to live comfortably, including complimentary roasted coffee (not in those little packets you get in hotels which make brown water--not coffee) with more than enough for our 3 day stay, purified water in the refrigerator, dishes, pots, pans, barbeque equipment, washer dryer and soaps, dish racks, wine bottle openers, you name it they have it for you. There was an abundance of plush towels, bedding was clean and warm and plenty of extra pillows. Games, books and cards are on hand and comfortable enough seating. The only caveat to all of these positive remarks is that we could hear road noise in the morning. as the street is a main street to drive down to the ferry line. While winter is fairly quiet, town does bustle in the summer time and it may be much noisier during tourist season which may or may not be a problem for others. Overall, this little cottage is priced really well and we do not hesitate to recommend it to others."

  • LOVED the Round House!

    "my family and i had an amazingly fun time staying at the round house right before the new year. we have two small children which the house was perfect for! not only is the house round but it's very modern, clean, and simple in a good way (which i was thankful for having small children). the kitchen was well stocked with cooking needs - great cookware, knives, gas stove (i like to cook, can you tell?). there was plenty of movies and music to choose from. the property was quiet, peaceful, and beautiful (even in the winter). my kids loved the hottub with outdoor speakers and exploring the rocks on the beach during low tide. we had a fabulous time and will be back for sure!"

  • Peaceful and perfect!

    "My husband and I stayed at Sawmill Creek Cottage for three nights in January. Our aim was to experience the island in the "off-season" and decide whether we really wanted to move there. Within three hours of arrival, we were sure San Juan Island was the right home for us. In large part, that may be due to Sawmill Creek Cottage, which was small but comfortably livable, well appointed, clean, and very peaceful. It is only a short trip (by car or by foot!) from the heart of town, yet the cottage is secluded and quiet. Its waterfront location offers birdwatching and peaceful views from your breakfast table, the tumbling creek provides just the right amount of white noise, and the huge willow tree was beautiful in the winter... it must be spectacular in full foliage! The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare good meals, which really saved money during our stay. The nearby grocery store (in town) has prices very comparable to those in Seattle. The queen-sized bed is wonderfully comfortable, and the bathtub is perfect for soaking! The internet access was reliable and did everything we needed it to do. The overall feel of the cottage is vintage/country, so don't expect granite countertops and luxury fittings, but the well-maintained, old-fashioned feel was cozy, welcoming, and induced plenty of relaxation! We will definitely be back as we hunt for a more permanent residence on the island!"

  • 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!!!!!"
