“Quiet getaway”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

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!!!

Green Features: This is a Green place to stay because the lights are fluorescent and recycling occurs unless it's trash. We liked that our towels and sheets weren't changed everyday, just like at home!

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!

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.

Room Tip: Eagle's Nest has large bathroom and nice view.

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.

Room Tip: Don't take Veranda room. It does have its own entrance, but a terribly small bathroom and it is...

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.

Due to unfortunate misunderstanding the previous review was unwarranted. Greg and Naoni have refunded our second nights stay. Hillside House is an outstanding place to stay and I definitely recommend it. Thanks Naoni and Greg... Paul
