I enjoyed a mid October stay here with my son, a good friend and her son as a wonderful treat at the end of a week of touring prospective colleges. It was easy to get to via shuttle to the ferry from Seattle and the ferry ride was a great way to start the relaxation part of our trip! I... More

This B&B has that one amazing quality that's hard to find in most places: it's just like home. Even if your home doesn't look the same, it's full of all the great qualities of any home: quaint, cozy, comfortable, clean and ... just ... lovely. The owners (who happen to be my Aunt & Uncle) are folks you end up... More

The room has a separate entrance from the main front door if one wants to utilize that. You can sit in their central living room and look though the book collection or video... More

We stayed at Kirk House in October 2016. Each morning Doug and Roxy made a delicious breakfast and spent time with us discussing our plans for the day and giving us more information about what else we could do. They clearly love their island and hosting guests. The breakfasts were a great way to start the day and large enough... More
