In my opinion, this is the best B&B to stay in while visiting Friday Harbor in the San Juan Islands! The historical, charming home is maintained beautifully. The home is extremely clean, immaculate and comfortable. It was such a treat to admire the architecture of the home and the beauty of the gardens. Even the pansies that re-seeded themselves and grew up through the front entrance walkway gave visitors a warm welcome feeling. I personally enjoyed the unique birdbaths and tables made of glass vases. The Kirk House is within easy walking distance from Friday Harbor.

Debbie and Allen were gracious and kind hosts. They were helpful when asked for restaurant recommendations and directions, but yet non-intrusive and allowed guests to be alone. Who could ask for better hosts? Debbie's enthusiasm for the love of her home and the comfortable feeling she gave guests, made us feel as if she was a long-time friend. Both Debbie and Allen were quick to help when asked. They live in the cottage next door but are easily reached if needed.

The breakfasts were excellent and filling. We never needed to eat lunch and had a mid-afternoon snack until dinner. The yogurt parfait and entrees were presented beautifully each morning - and with a smile and kind word. Coffee was also very, very good. It was ready for the early riser and it always plentiful. We enjoyed having a cup on the front porch before breakfast each morning. The front entrance porch is actually on the side of the house and delightful for reading the morning paper. The large wrap around porch is very relaxing for reading or enjoying a glass of wine.

The rooms were very nicely decorated and each had an outside entrance. The bed was very comfortable and shower in wonderful working condition. An earlier post mentioned thin walls - but we did not notice this. In fact, we felt as if we were the only ones in the house... it was that quiet. There is a refrigerator for guest use in the common livingroom. Afternoon snacks were plentiful - and there was the large jar of candies and chocolates available all the time.

This was the best B&B experience we have ever had and we would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful charming home and wonderful hosts to anyone. Keep up the good work Debbie and Allen.

We spent three nights at the Kirk House in the Veranda Room in late July. It is a beautful, historic arts & crafts home. They even have a ton of documentation on the history of the house in each room, which is interesting. Allen & Debbie were most gracious and breakfast was wonderful. The started each breakfast with a fruit and yogurt parfait, with their own homemade granola. After that, there was a delicious hot entree. A large jug of fresh juice was also on the table with unlimited coffee. The room was nicely sized with a huge shower in the bath. There was a door that opened onto the wrap around porch with loads of seating. They even furnish a refrigerator in the lobby area, if you wanted to keep wine or something else cold. It was great - very convenient to town. We had a great stay.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Kirk House in Friday Harbor on 7/26 for 2 nights. We fancy ourselves as being experienced B&B guest and enjoy the B&B experience. We had such a warm and wonderful experience with Debbie and Allan and would recommend staying at the Kirk House. The breakfast was delicious and the hospitality was top notch. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it was one of the best we have ever experienced. Debbies enthusiasm is contagious and her warmth is such a comfort. Thanks for the wonderful stay and relaxation!!

The Kirk House was the perfect place to unwind and experience the island. Debbie and Allen were the perfect hosts and paid such attention to detail. The breakfasts were excellent and kept us full until dinner. The house is a beautifully, restored craftsman. We couldn't get enough of the wraparound porch.
