    About this property

    Three Private Suites - Spectacular Views

    Historic vacation home in Friday Harbor
    Our home was previously an award winning B&B, the Highland Inn, operating since 1998. As it no longer operates as an Inn, it is now simply "The Highland." Now you have the chance to enjoy the entire house with family and friends. There are three very large master suites for complete privacy when you want, while the spacious chef's kitchen, living room area and outdoor decks provide ample room for all guests. And speaking of the decks ... take in the expansive 180 degree views across the Straits of Juan de Fuca to the Olympics and scan west to Haro Strait and Victoria and further north to the Gulf Islands of Canada. During the season, you can literally hear the orcas surface from the deck. Just a short 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive away, you can access hiking trails along the coast and get close to the rich marine life of the San Juan Islands. Lime Kiln State Park (whale siting spot #1 on the island) is a 3 minute drive with great trails, water access, and a hydrophone for listening to the whales.
    Guest accommodations at this vacation home offer fireplaces and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. Accommodations offer separate living rooms and include sofa beds. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas. Bathrooms include showers, bidets, and hair dryers.
    The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

      A great getaway!

      Three couples shared this gorgeous property - each had our own large, private suite with fabulous views. The common areas were wonderful, kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed, the living room fireplace was so inviting on the drizzly night we checked in, and the huge deck with Adirondack chairs and porch swing was just perfect for sunny times (and sunsets). Hosts were responsive to our inquiries, and very friendly and accommodating. It was the perfect location for exploring the island.

        Great setting, comfortable house, outdoors needs TLC

        Wonderful views of the water. Well stocked kitchen. Bedrooms spacious and comfortable. Peaceful, quiet, great for unplugging. This was once a grand inn and has great bones. Only reason it’s 4 rather than 5 stars is the outdoors needed a lot of TLC. For example the 15 planters on back deck all had dead plants in them. There were loose screws and boards in the porch swing. The varnish was peeling, and the windows very dirty. Also the shrubbery was not trimmed thus obstructing the view from the first floor deck (2nd floor view was incredible). all of this put a slight damper on the otherwise beautiful location. Just didn’t seem to fit. I’d go back but only if the owner confirmed they stepped up the TLC of this grand property. The steam baths in the two suites were a nice plus.

        5/5 Excellent

          Perfect family get-together.

          This home is absolutely beautiful. Gorgeous views! Well-stocked. Kind hosts who responded promptly to questions. Best of all, J pod Southern Resident orcas everyday!

            Wonderful Vacation

            What a beautiful home with beautiful views! We spent five wonderful days at the Highland with out adult kids and their spouse/significant other. We were all so pleased to have our own private suites to retreat to when we weren't out on the decks or at the dining table playing games. The home is lovely and well appointed/provisioned and the views breathtaking. We saw whales twice from the deck! The home is located just a short drive to Friday Harbor which was convenient for our day excursions. The kids are saying this was their favorite family vacation because of all there was to do and see on the island (whale watching, kayaking, hiking, Susie's Mopeds, zip lining, etc.) and because of the lovely accommodations with this house rental. We hated to leave! We left our hearts on San Juan Island. Thank you to our hosts!

              Perfect family getaway

              My mother, her siblings, their spouses and myself met up in Seattle (from CA and TX) and then spent 5 days here. We loved every minute! Each couple had plenty of space and we were all able to cook/eat together with the size of the kitchen and dining area. We spent much of our time on the back lower and upper patio, catching up, as we hadn’t spent time together in years. There was even office space for me to see clients online as needed. Highly recommend.
