What our guests say is of
PRIME importance to us

We spent two great nights at the Friday Harbor Grand this past weekend. Farhad is a wonderful, considerate host – preparing gourmet breakfasts with largely homegrown ingredients, providing recommendations for local restaurants or what to see on and off the island. And, his classical piano recitals each evening are a highlight, even without the nice glass of wine and freshly-baked cookies that accompany them. The inn is a beautiful and newly restored early 20th century home. All the updates are tastefully designed and furnished, providing all modern conveniences. This has to be one of the best places to stay on the island, with a short walk to the harbor’s restaurant and ferry. The San Juan Island Museum is just around the corner – we experienced a moving Ai Weiwei exhibit there, a North American exclusive. Friday Harbor Grand is a winning combination of beautiful accommodations, excellent location and a caring host who clearly enjoys making his guests happy.

This place is brand new – just opened – so don’t be fooled if there are not many reviews. The food was absolutely delicious – freshest ingredients, healthy and exquisitely prepared. The host was wonderful (he treated us like family and even picked us up from San Juan airport) and his evening piano performance with wine was a great extra touch. The Harbor View Suite was spacious and very well appointed with a large private bath and a very comfortable bed. The view of the harbor from our large 2nd floor balcony was very relaxing. The location is perfect for exploring the San Juan Islands – a pleasant walk to all downtown restaurants and shops, the ferry, whale watching excursions, rental car and the island transit. When we go back to the islands, we will not stay anywhere else.
