Not what we expected!
Upon first arriving, we received instructions to go to back door, as the front door did not open with code. There was a code to be entered, however no instructions how to operate it. It took us several minutes to figure it out. It would have been nice to have been instructed how to open the door. The place is decorated with older furniture and antiques, but charming. The house was fairly clean and had clean, comfortable beds and plenty of towels for all. All but 1 light bulb, above sink< in kitchen were burned out, and we were planning on making a large family dinner the next day, so I had to call the owner. The kitchen was the biggest disappointment. It had very few baking pans, mixing bowls or items to make larger family dinners, in spite of being advertised that it sleeps 14. If it sleeps 14, then it should be equipped to cook and serve 14. There was no dishwasher, so the 4 dish towels, were soaked by the time we finished drying dines. Also, bring your own paper towels.
Tons of character and charm in this home. A very positive and fun filled vibe to the home. You can t
Grear location and square footage was perfect for us. Only one recommendation is that some of the heaters in the rooms were inoperative. But such a small item being there are so many positives to this home. The owner was phenomenal and allowed us to check out late. She truly understands customer service.. We absolutely would recommend this home to anyone. Stay here and create new memories as we did.
Walking distance to everything
Loved this house, so much space and great location. We were able to walk to everything which was great and pet friendly.
Comfortable and inviting
House was so inviting and comfortable. Great location to town. We had a wonderful stay. Had a reading area we loved as well. Big kitchen for us to cook and table to fit us all
Excellent location for family gathering
The house had a kitchen and common area on the ground floor, which allowed our family to gel together and work the jigsaw puzzles, play games, cook and eat together. There were two bedrooms on the main floor, one of which had its own bath/shower. There was a half bath near the entrance, off the kitchen, and a full bath and two bedrooms upstairs. One of the bedrooms upstairs had its own kitchen.
We put all the adults downstairs and the children upstairs. It worked out nicely, with enough privacy for those needing quiet time and common areas to bring people together. The downstairs rooms had two double beds each. The upstairs rooms had two beds each, plus one had a fold-up single bed in the closet and the other had a coach that opened into a (firm) bed.
It was an easy walk to downtown Friday Harbor once we found the pathway through the business area down the road. It is not in downtown, but maybe a five- to ten-minute walk away.
There were a few glitches upfront, all of which were addressed for us. The laundry machines were behind locked folding doors, one of which was having difficulty staying on its tracks, which is one of the reasons they were locked. That was not clear from the ad. The owner was able to get the Internet fixed for us. Initially it was not available.
There was a barbecue grill in the backyard, which worked on charcoal. We were able to cook out one evening and make some-mores. The kitchen was excellent, so there was no need. We wanted a different experience. Overall, it was a great experience.
Thanks, Molly! So glad your crew enjoyed the house. Andrea
Great stay in Friday Harbor!
Stayed in the house for the weekend was perfect for our group of 10 people and great location to easily get to and from the ferry. The owner is lovely and even let us check in a bit earlier as we needed to get ready for wedding. Highly recommend!
