Recent Friday Harbor reviews

  • Perfect Location

    "We have had the privilege of staying at this delightful property twice and hope to return again. It is unsurpassed tranquility, scenery and location with an elegant home. Highly recommended to recharge anyone looking for rest. There is plenty of sightseeing, boating, restaurants, hiking and shopping as well as a much slower pace if desired. It has exceeded our expectations. Picturesque Snug Harbor is only a 5 minute walk featuring renowned Maya Whale watching tours. Looking forward to our next visit!!!"

  • The Perfect Getaway

    "We've stayed at High Haro Retreat twice now, and we can't say enough good things about it. The setting is second to none--the sweeping views of the water are stunning, and at night, you can watch the moonlight reflected on the Strait of Juan de Fuca. During the day, you can sit in the sunroom and bask in the sun as you look out on the water, watching for the whales to go by, using the thoughtfully provided binoculars and telescope. Deer wander around the property, adding an extra serene touch. The house itself is extremely comfortable--from the well-stocked kitchen to the cozy master bedroom (with that fabulous view from the bed). Between the setting and the house, we can't think of another place where we'd rather stay when we visit the island."

  • Fabulous Family Reunion at Channel Heights

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We were a party of 8 with our 3 adult children and their partners, coming from VT, WA and FL the day after Labor Day. The house is just fabulous. Loved the decks on both levels and the hot tub, too. We could not take our eyes off the view - and did not have to! We saw whales, seals, eagles and porpoises almost daily. We're all pretty serious cooks and appreciated the spacious and very well furnished kitchen. Bedrooms and living space were so nice. Enjoyed exploring Friday Harbor, a kayak excursion day, many walks and hikes and tours, and then a trip to Orcas to walk up Constitution on our way back to regular life. Could not have been better!"

  • Cozy accomodations and so serene!

    "First my apologies for getting this review posted so late. We stayed here for our 25th Anniversary and was looking for a place away from the tourism and we found it here! Funny I should say that being that we were tourists coming from a tourist town in Leavenworth. South point out in the National Park was a dream come true. Our first morning we woke to a stunning sunrise of pinks and oranges, with a rainbow to boot. We were greeted by a little grey/black fox that came all the way up to the deck to say HELLO. Walked out to the lighthouse and as we cut through the grassy trails came across many black tail deer and a 2 point buck that wanted his picture taken as well. Arrived at the Lighthouse monument to find the biggest Eagle I have ever seen, and we get a lot of them on our side of the mountain. He sat up on the railing of the lighthouse and let us take close up pics as if to say I am the ruler of this roost! Views from the bluff were stunning all the way around and we even snapped a couple of pics of a seal and blue heron down below. This was all our first morning there! Kristine recommended a great whale watch outfit out of Roche/Snug Harbor and they did not disappoint! The weather was absolutely perfect and the water was like glass. We were fortunate enough to follow a transient pod around which consisted of two momma's and three of their calves. We watched them play, eat seals :(, breach, moonwalk, harass the stellar sea lions, and also nurse! I have the best pictures ever and I owe Kristine a big thank you for that!! We did not hear any noises from Kristine or her adorable fur baby and the cottage was very quaint and cozy. Not much of a kitchen as described, but she left us wonderful things for us to enjoy. The bed I thought was comfy and I could have laid there all morning, except I was in such a hurry to see as much of the island as possible. I did not leave a stone unturned! Thank you so much for sharing a piece of heaven with us! We will be back!"
