“A Warm and Inviting Place”
Reviewed 26 October 2010

We have stayed in B&B's around the U.S and found our stay at Olympic Lights one of our best experiences. Lea andChristian were the most gracious hosts we have ever encountered. Their hospitality was superb and our accommodations charming and confortable. What a beautiful and serene property! We appreciated the interesting conversation, the tasty and healthy breakfasts, and all the extras that were provided- fresh flowers, lotions, a well-equipped library, and local tourist information. Lea and Christian have thought of everything to make a stay at Olympic Lights a most pleasant and memorable experience= A+

When we arrived, the house was open, empty and quiet. There was a welcoming note from our hosts Christian and Lea. We found our very comfortable room and then relaxed by reading outside by their beautiful gardens as the sun set. But the five acre grounds were conducive to wandering so I didn't actually get much reading done.

When Christian and Lea returned they were very thoughtful and helpful in sharing their knowledge of the island. And it was fun to watch them play a variety of African drums during one of their free concerts in Friday Harbor.

The Inn was well kept and accented with Lea's artwork. All the rooms were clean and comfortable and nicely appointed. Lea and Christian clearly take pride in the idyllic peaceful place they've created.

Even though they are a few (5?) miles from Friday Harbor, it is an easy drive or bike ride to get there and their location is very convenient to the beaches and trails of "American Camp" (part of the National Historic Park).

We recently returned from a trip to San Juan Island and stayed at this B&B based upon the great reviews. Christian & Lea were wonderful hosts and served up an amazing breakfast each morning we were there. They also provided some great recommendations on places to eat on the island (both dinner & lunch) -- and all of them were great.
The rooms are small (we were in the Ra Room), but there is a common area downstairs where you can stretch out and read, or look through the books, magazines, or restaurant menus.
The grounds are beautiful, but unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to walk through them as it was cool and rainy on our "free" day.

My husband and I have been going out to the San Juan Islands for almost 10 years now. This will have been our third stay at Olympic Lights. Every stay at this B&B has been excellent. The location is beautiful, and thankfully, off of the beaten path a bit. The hosts, Christian and Lea, have been making their lovely farm house available to guests for 25 years. They are always warm and accommodating, and eager to share their extensive knowledge about the islands. The rooms are on the smaller side, but very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts are always fantastic and use very fresh ingredients. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend this B & B.

Great attention to detail. Beautiful room. Great Hosts! If you're looking for a great value on San Juan Island near the American Camp - this is a great place. There are large beautiful sunny grounds. The breakfast was excellent.

You'll need a car/bike at this location as it is away from Friday Harbor.

We visited Olympic Lights B&B again this year. We have been coming since 1986 and it is very comforting to return each year and find this B&B improving with each visit. Christian and Lea are welcoming hosts and Lea's breakfasts are outstanding. We enjoy meeting new people and have had some delightful conversations during breakfast.

In addition, Christian and Lea are members of a miramba band that plays each Thursday evening from 5-7 at the marina. Be sure to catch their performance. While their music is outstanding, you will also see musicians truly enjoying themselves while performing.

If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing, welcoming atmosphere. Be sure to visit Olympic Lights.

Words hardly describe our stay at Olympic Lights. It's more of a feeling. We stay here every time we visit the island, and as soon as we pass through the gate, we know that we are in a very special place. Christian and Lea are extraordinary hosts. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable, and the breakfast is amazing, but it's the warmth and caring from our hosts which keep us coming back for more. Whether we're sitting in the beautiful garden as the sun sets, watching the flowers glow, with the Olympic Mountains in the background, or strolling around in the early morning fog, taking surreal pictures as the sun breaks through and lights up the dew covered landscape, Olympic Lights calls us again and again. A++
