“The best Bed & Breakfast with AMAZING food!!!”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

We have been to the Tucker House Inn 5 times now and we seriously can't get enough! Our friends and family get so jealous that we now are bringing them along for the experience. We love the small town feel to just get away! The staff is always so accommodating and is excellent at responding to our last minute requests. We've brought our 8 lb dog with every time and they have special little treats for them and a dog area that is great to let them use the restroom. I won't stay anywhere else when we go to Friday Harbor! Oh and both rooms we have stayed in have the most comfortable beds to where you don't want to get up in the morning ;-)

Room Tip: The Roche Harbor Room is our favorite and love that we get breakfast brought to us!

We used a recent groupon to visit Friday Harbor. We loved our time here. We stayed in the Secret Passage room, an upper floor room which was great. The steps are narrow so if you have a difficult time with steps I'd recommend a ground floor room but it was fine for us. Molly greeted us on our check-in and for breakfast each morning. She is a fantastic chef! We loved the cookies delivered each day and the kitchen in the house we were in was accessible to us for a quick coffee or tea or if you needed something reheated. It had a nice enclosed dining area if you want to enjoy a takeout lunch or dinner.

The location is right in town so we walked around both days we were there. You can also drive around the island and visit Roche Harbor and the state park. I'd definitely recommend a stay here and hope to return soon. We love traveling during the off season when its not crowded.

We were so thrilled with our stay at Tucker House. We went in the offseason, so we got a great deal. We stayed at Goose in the Pond. It was cozy and perfect. Breakfast delivered each day! It is a very walkable location. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend this property without hesitation!

We mainly came because of a groupon deal, but we now found a new beautiful place to revisit again! What service! What a beautiful room complete with probably the best jacuzzi tub we ever had. The breakfast was delicious. Molly is an unbelievable cook. And Elise was an amazing hostess. I don't give 5. Stars freely but everything about this place is just that.

Magical weekend stay at the Tucker House B & B the weekend before Christmas. Fantastic room, wonderful breakfasts, great hospitality, very friendly hosts, and great holiday island atmosphere. Even danced the night away at the Rumor Mill after an incredible meal at the Coho Restaurant.
Highly recommend the Tucker House and Friday Harbor as a incredible getaway destination.

Room Tip: The 4 Winds suite was perfect!

My wife and I recently embarked on a six-week tour of the western National Parks. Our first destination, however, was not a park but the town of Friday Harbor on San Juan Island in Washington state. Our daughter lived in the Puget Sound area for a bit and we had always wanted to visit the island. We were traveling with our two Chihuahuas and pet-friendly accommodations were required.

Our research for the trip led us to The Tucker House Inn. Discussing our needs when making the reservations, Anna Maria de Freitas , was very helpful in helping us select our room and in recommending several restaurants for us to try once we arrived.

Upon arrival, after a spectacular ferry ride through the San Juan Islands, we arrived after sundown and got to the desk where our guest package was waiting for us. After dropping our bags in our room, Jenny's Cottage, we went to the Cask and Schooner Restaurant and enjoyed a wonderful dinner before retiring.

The next morning we were treated to a sensational in-room breakfast, handmade crepes with ham, corn, onions, spinach and green beans, a fruit plate (raspberries, black berries, cantaloupe and kiwi fruit), 2 large cinnamon sticky buns with walnuts, fresh orange juice and coffee. Yummy!

While on San Juan Island you,should experience the San Juan Scenic Tour. It is an easy car drive that gives you many excellent views of,the island and the beautiful sound side views. Islands clad in dense forests are just across the water, giving you many opportunities to view the varied wildlife of the region, seals, eagles and ospreys, and the orca pods that make the region so famous. They swim right by the beaches, just yards off the beaches. It is a treat to,hear the whoosh of their breathing as they surge past you, black hides gleaming in the sunlight.

Be sure to explore the Lime Kiln Lighthouse and the park surrounding it. The Pacific Madrone trees are fascinating. Driftwood clogged beaches are found everywhere and provide hours of pleasant exploration.

In Friday Harbor, there are many terrific shops and boutiques to shop and many fine restaurants to enjoy. Our dinner the second evening was at Coho, a seafood restaurant just three blocks from our cottage and it was a splendid meal!

All in all, our stay at Tucker House was absolutely smashing. The hotel is spotlessly clean, our room, Jenny's Cottage, was the only independent room in the hotel, very quiet and comfortable, with a nice patio to enjoy if you wanted to just sit, read a book, or enjoy a glass of crisp white wine (yumm!). The staff tries to meet any request you ask and they do a really good job!

All in all, the Tucker House exceeded all my expectations for our stay and my wife and I are already planning another trip to enjoy the experience again. If you go to Friday Harbor, you simply can't do any better than this.

Room Tip: Ask for Jenny's Cottage

My husband and I are not into a bed and breakfast couple (we normally check in a hotel) but since we want to make it different so we tried The Tucker House Inn. To our surprise, a very good surprise this is the perfect get away/celebration ever. The staff were all very accomodating and you feel the warmnest of their hospitality. The room is perfect for us. It's cozy and a feeling of togetherness. Our 25yrs anniversary became one of our memorable get away. The breakfast was so delish, the welcoming cookies are superb...oh my husband love the home made granolas...everything was all perfect. Thanks.

Room Tip: The corner room on the second floor is the best for any anniversary stay. Is it called the quiet co...
