"Beautiful room, good location, great experience"

We stayed at the Eagle's nest for our anniversary. The Eagle's nest is worth the extra bucks, it has a wet bar with hot/cold water, a massive hot tub, a massive, comfy kind bed, a small TV, a music system and tons of privacy! The views are very good too, and you can't hear anybody except at breakfast time. Tons of hot water and good water pressure. Breakfast was A-ok, a little too sweet for my taste, and I missed having fresh fruits, but they try their best. Their banana cookies were delicious, though! The B&B is a 10-15 min walk from Downtown Friday harbor, which wasn't bad at all in good weather. It is a good balance between proximity to downtown and a quiet place. You can borrow their binoculars for your bird watching trips, and they also have spare umbrellas. The hosts Greg and Naoni were very welcoming and highly informative. All in all, a great experience. Some feedback for the hosts: It's a beautiful, large bathroom with one drawback- there is no mood lighting, and you don't allow candles. Maybe install a dimmer switch or keep a few battery operated candles?

My husband, 17 yo daughter and I just finished spending two nights at this property. The property is a 1960/1970 converted split level, but, the owners have made the property work. Each bedroom has it's own theme, nice beds/bedding and some bedrooms even have their own private baths. The breakfast provided by Greg was hot, plentiful, and well done. Greg was helpful and very knowledgeable about the area and what to see and do. Even provided an umbrella (after-all, it is Washington) and binoculars. One day it was cold and rainy and we were able to spend the afternoon in the breakfast room playing games and doing puzzles that were provided in the common area. Now, there are a couple of things that made our stay less than stellar -- the house doesn't have central heating, so, there are small space heaters in each bedroom. Greg, when giving us the tour told us about the heaters, but, didn't explain that you have to crank them to the max to be able to keep your room warm. So, the first night, we slept cold. The room was reported to have a twin bed -- the bed was actually a built out window bench with a foam mattress. Since the windows in the bedroom were single panes, even with the extra blankets provided, our daughter didn't have the best sleep. But, we would probably visit the property again -- crank the heater and remember that the "twin bed" isn't really a bed.

I made a reservation approximately 2 to 3 months prior to the planned date of arrival; I booked a room for three nights. As I was coming from San Diego, it takes some planning to make the trip. Approximately 7 days prior to my scheduled arrival date, a family emergency occurred and we were forced to cancel the vacation. I immediately called hillside house to notify them that we would be unable to complete vacation. Even with this amount of notice, the owner still wanted to charge us for the full three days. They eventually settled to charges for two full days plus a 10% cancellation fee. In my business life I have traveled extensively for over 25 years and have never seen a cancellation policy is strict. My advice is, if you ever make a reservation here be sure to read the cancellation policy, as they do not give an inch.

Me and my fiance spent 3 days at the bed and breakfast. Greg and Naoni are great hosts. Not only were the rooms clean and breakfasts delicious, but we were given expert advice on things to do on the island and places to eat lunch and dinner. I'd recommend this place to anyone visiting the island.

What a pleasant stay! Greg's breakfasts were delicious and while we ate Nanoi gave us travel suggestions that all turned out to be spectacular. We enjoyed the places she recommended! Our rooms were especially comfortable and quiet. Jennie who is short had a nice stretch to get up onto the bed in the Captain's Quarters!! It is a wonderful place to stay if you are looking for a quite B&B and the walk to town is close to many nice little shops. The cookies were delicious and hit the spot!!!

The hosts were extremely helpful with travel suggestions and the food was extraordinary. Greggs pancakes were the best I've ever had! The common area view was also exceptional. We called last minute. This 200 character minimum is silly.

We spent 4 days at the Hillside, and what a great place. Our hosts were wonderful and informative. Great knowledge of the island and various activities. The food was awesome every morning. The walk to and from town was a little further, but well worth it. It only adds a few extra minutes to the walk. On the other hand, it is very close to the airport and M&W auto rentals! Cannot go wrong here!
"Weekend in Friday Harbor"

We enjoyed our overnight stay at Hillside House Bed and Breakfast in Friday Harbor. We were traveling with family and actually stayed in two rooms - the Eagle's Nest and another lower level room. The owners were very friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations. The breakfast was delicious and Naoni gave us several recommendations for activities in the area - such as the lavender farm and a local theater production. The rooms were very clean and quiet. We did have access to a car or it would have been quite a walk from the ferry.
"Friday harbor b& b"

The home was nice and the deck was very nice. The hostess was very helpful. Her husband, however, made us feel uncomfortable about using some of the amenities. The location was okay, not great.I peaked at some if the rooms not occupied and they looked very nice. The breakfast was very good. The main room was spacious and the deck was really nice witha nice view. We didn't care for our room,The Veranda room. The heater didn't work and we were cold.

We had three nights on the island and spent them all at Hillside. We had no complaints of any kind. The house is away from downtown far enough to be quiet but not too far to walk (about a 5-10 minute walk). The room was very comfortable and the hosts very welcoming. Breakfast was outstanding.
