Longhouse B&B
Ranked #7 of 17 Friday Harbor B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 June 2013

We were welcomed to the house with a glass of wine and appetizers on the terrace overlooking the bay. Not more than ten minutes went by before I asked Patty and Jerry what was that creature running across the lawn. Turns out it was an otter; we later spotted two swimming just offshore. Then the herons and eagles made their appearances, followed a little later by the kingfisher, who entertained us by diving off the dock piling into the water multiple times. Next morning we saw a doe and her spotted fawn in the yard.
Patty and Jerry are very warm and generous people who love to share their home and island with all. The place is away from town and main resort--just what I wanted. The first night I could not sleep because of the absence of urban noise and light, but quickly adjusted and slept like a rock the following night. The room was roomy, clean and nicely appointed. Bathrooms are across the hall, but not a problem as the two guest rooms are assigned separate bathrooms. As for the breakfasts, absolutely wonderful. Wished we could have stayed a few more days to kayak and just hang. Next visit.

My husband and I stayed with Patty and Jerry in October, and it was one of the best stays of our lives. They are such an amazing couple with great travel stories, a beautiful home and AMAZING food! The moment we arrived we felt completely at home. Jerry was very helpful with offering feedback regarding activities, hikes, etc. in the area, and they were both a pleasure to be around! If you get a chance, try Patty's Dutch baby!! We will definitely be back in the future and HIGHLY recommend staying at Longhouse!

We had a most wonderful time at the Longhouse Bed and Breakfast. Patty and Jerry are warm, kind, and generous people. They worked hard to make sure our vacation was relaxing, warm, well fed, and fun. The house is beautiful and perfect for a weekend away. The food was incredible, and the company with Patty and Jerry even better. We had a fabulous trip and would love to return SOON. Gratitude and blessings to Patty and Jerry!

A great location for a gateway on San Juan Island. Patty and Jerry are warm and welcoming hosts who made us feel at home. Highly recommended, especially if you are looking for a place a little outside of towns, facing a small bay and surrounded by woods. And the breakfast is delicious.

The breakfast is amazing, amazing, amazing. Patty is an incredible chef (she used to own a restaurant) and she fed us the most yummy breakfasts. (We didn't need to eat until dinner). the breakfast table overlooks a small harbor and is surrounded by trees. Patty and Jerry are really good people. They shared stories about San Juan Island and were so generous with their time. I would absolutely return there next time I go to San Juan Island.

Room Tip: all rooms were very comfortable.

We spent 4 nights in the cabin of this lovely Bed&Breakfast and had a great time with Pat and Jerry, very lovely, a style, we really appriciate between all the common hostels, and places we stayed in the north west. Pat and Jerry love the place where they live and you feel this in every single moment you spend with them. Wish we wouldn't live that far to come back more often! :)

Mark and I, along with our daughter Holly and her husband Andrew had a most delightful stay with Patty and Jerry at Longhouse B & B in August! I am still longing for the tasty lavender lemonade and chocolate chip cookies we received upon arrival, not to mention the outstanding and generous gourmet breakfasts beautifully presented each day---Patty enjoys pampering her guests! As others have mentioned, we too found the lovely bedrooms and bathrooms to be very comfortable and also very clean, which is definitely a requirement in my opinion. I loved the Native American theme of the decor, and the relaxing setting near the water. We also enjoyed being within easy walking distance of Snug Harbor Marina, from where we departed for our whale watch tour. We enjoyed talking with Patty and Jerry about their world travels, and loved their humor and enthusiasm. Patty and Jerry, thanks for your wonderful hospitality---hope to stay with you again when we return to San Juan Island someday.
