We stayed for 2 nights in June and had a great time. Roxy and Doug were welcoming hosts and were truly interested in their guests having a great time on the island and at the Kirk House. The breakfasts were tasty and the treats yummy! Our room was comfortable. Craftsman style home was right up our alley and decorated nicely!...

Thank you for writing such a great review. The house sells itself - and my favorite part - the Veranda is such a wonderful getaway all by itself. Who wouldn't love to sit in a wicker rocker and relax the day away. So glad you were able to enjoy your morning coffee out there!!

My girlfriend and I visited Friday Harbor for just a single night. We walked to the Kirk House from the ferry port and were warmly welcomed by Doug, who gave us a tour and an incredibly helpful list of ideas of things to do and places to eat. The house was incredible - a very cool historic vibe, but incredibly...

Travel the B&B's throughout the world and you'll not meet a nicer couple than Doug & Roxy Kasman. Their desire to make your stay as accommodating as possible was stellar. They take great pride in their breakfast service, and it shows. We arranged a take-away breakfast one morning; all I expected was juice, yogurt and muffin. We were delighted to...

We recently stayed two nights at the Kirk House, and were quite satisfied with the experience. The house was nicely decorated without being fussy, the hosts were pleasant and happy to talk without being overbearing, the breakfasts were plentiful and good without being massive and calorie-laden. Convenient for walking into the business district of Friday Harbor for dinner and shopping....

We so appreciate you taking the time to write your review. Sometimes when you stay in a historic home with the charm that goes along with that, all of the amenities to make the rooms sound tight are not an easy fix. We definitely will take your concerns into account and see what we can do. We have the best...

The room was clean and comfy; breakfast...
