Nestled on the bluffs overlooking San Juan Island’s iconic marina, the Friday Harbor House, a boutique, 23-room Inn, recently unveiled refreshed guestrooms and enhancements to its picturesque outdoor patio and restaurant.
The newly renovated modern rooms have been designed to reflect a luxurious and contemporary relaxed getaway with European king beds, jetted tubs and fireplaces. Many of the rooms also offer stunning views of the marina and ferry landing. Upon arrival, guests are welcomed with a house-made, barrel-aged sangria and Fidalgo Bay coffee beans that are ground during check-in for use with Chemex® coffeemakers in every room. For a restful night’s sleep, guests receive a complimentary Puget Sound Sleep Kit, which comes with an eye mask, chamomile bath salts and lavender pillow spray. Travelers can also customize their stay by selecting from a pillow menu with a variety of options, such as goose down, organic buckwheat and bamboo. Additional amenities include DIRECTV and daily complimentary made-to-order breakfast.
The on-site restaurant’s menu, created by Chef Jason Aldous, incorporates ingredients from local waters, artisans and farmers into its Pacific Northwest cuisine and craft cocktails. The menu includes Northwest carnitas with braised pork cheek and wild fiddlehead ferns, or local littleneck clams with house-made kimchi and smoked oyster mushrooms. The extensive cocktail program includes crafted infusions like fig leaf vodka and quince syrup, made with ingredients from the onsite garden.
The large outdoor patio offers a welcoming place to enjoy it all, complete with ample seating and new fire pits with stunning views of the harbor, ferry landing and San Juan Channel.
