“Beautiful Even When It's Raining”
Reviewed 25 October 2011

Such a relaxing and beautiful spot. Coming from Nevada, don't know if I have ever seen an area where the scenery was straight out of a movie. The food here was amazing, the best breakfasts that we have ever had. Lea and Christian were so accommodating and we had great conversations with them. They were delightful and made our trip here so relaxing and memorable.

We stayed three nights and had three different, delicious breakfasts. We so enjoyed the lovely gardens and the beautiful scenery. Lea and Christian were marvelous hosts. We felt so at home. They gave us much help in what to do and see and where to eat on the island.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Heart room, but all the rooms upstairs have lovely views. The house is very quiet.

Pam & I were very comfortable and welcomed during our 3-day stay in Aug 2011. Lea and Christian could not have been better hosts. This was our first visit to San Juan, but were quickly given a "mapping' of the island with suggestions of things to do/see and restaurant suggestions for dinner meals. Breakfasts were excellent and generally included fresh juice, local fruit, egg bake/quiche and homemade biscuits/muffins.

We also enjoyed the opportunity to meet the other guests and share stories, something not generally available outside of B&B's.

We are already looking forward to our next visit and will definitely stay with Lea and Christian again.

We were lucky to get a room for three nights at Olympic Lights for a trip we took this month. The innkeepers, Lea and Christian, are excellent hosts and are very accommodating. They provided menus and recommendations for dinners, sailings and whale watching. The breakfasts were plentiful and delicious (I got the recipe for the biscuits so I could make them at home … and I think the heart shape makes them taste even better). Our room was very comfortable and clean. The location is perfect for a visit to San Juan Island and is only 10 minutes from Friday Harbor, but worlds away from stress. The gardens are beautiful, and the chickens that provided the eggs for our great breakfasts were fun to watch. The views from the inn are wonderful, meadows facing the strait ... sometimes you can even hear and see the whales swimming by. We had stayed at the inn many years ago and were very pleased then and we were very pleased again this time. We are already looking forward to staying at the inn the next time we visit San Juan Island.

It is hard to adequately express how delightful our accommodations at the Olympic Lights were. The view from our bedroom window was absolutely breathtaking! The breakfasts were delicious and hosts Lea and Christian could not have been more accommodating! (When flight complications arose, they allowed us to delay our reservations by 1 day in order to maximize our time on the Island!) Lea was quite knowledgeable about points of interest around the Island and gave detailed directions(along with a map). We had a fantastic experience at The Olympic Lights! Many thanks to Christian and Lea!

Olympic Lights is a warm, beautiful inn owned by the warm and beautiful Christian and Lea who are fortunate and smart enough to live in one of the most beautiful spots my partner and I have ever visited. The inn, a Victorian farmhouse, is in an open meadow down a country lane, surrounded by Lea's gardens and more hummingbirds than I have ever seen in one place. With views of the straits and the snow-capped Olympic Mountains across them, it is as perfect a place to freshen your lungs and clear your mind as one could imagine. Christian and Lea serve the breakfasts they themselves make at a big kitchen table. We had fresh fruit, oven-hot biscuits, delicious egg dishes and lots of good hot coffee. Note the coffee may not be on until 9 a.m. because, really, what's the rush? I believe there are only four rooms, and with eight total guests sharing the house while we were there, we had great conversation without anyone ever being in anyone's way. The rooms our perfectly pleasant. Ours did not have a view of the mountains or water but it was the biggest room and very comfortable. I believe at least one room has the million-dollar view. These are charming rooms that feel like someone's home, as one would want. There are no TVs, coffee makers, fridges or other un-necessities in the rooms. We rented a house once in Provence with a wide, mountain view surrounded by lavendar and a castle on the horizon. For natural beauty, Olympic Lights is every bit as spectacular (and let's not forget the ferry ride over!). Add Christian and Lea, their food and their hospitality, and I can't imagine being much happier any place in the world.

Room Tip: Our room was the largest, but at least one smaller room has the better view (our view was still nice...
