The Harrison House Suites Inn is a Friday Harbor Bed and Breakfast perched on a hill overlooking the town of Friday Harbor on San Juan Island, off the coast of Washington State.
This six suite Inn is comprised of a newly renovated 1905 historic Craftsman house and an adjacent historic cottage that houses the Garden Café, our catering kitchen. This pet-friendly bed and breakfast has been lovingly restored and offers guests all the modern conveniences in these historic homes. Filled with an eclectic mix of antiques, vintage and shabby chic finds, the guest accommodations offer all the comforts of home.
The Harrison House Suites is locally owned and operated by Anna Maria de Freitas and David Pass; we are a green inn and committed to a sustainable business and contributing year round to our community by volunteering and participating in island activities and promotions.
Friday Harbor Bed and Breakfast Owners
The Harrison House Suites and our neighbor property, Tucker House Inn, are the culmination of a dream come true for inn owners Anna Maria de Freitas and David Pass. Having spent years traveling the world as guests at many bed and breakfasts and country inns, the memories of their visits were not only influenced by the amenities that each offered, but by the hospitality of the innkeepers. Throughout their travels, they took copious notes. So with the San Juan Island Inn Collection, they have tried to incorporate and build upon many of the wonderful ideas from fellow innkeepers around the world with these two Friday Harbor Bed and Breakfasts.
Now with two Inns and a fine dining restaurant, Coho Restaurant, they have grown beyond a small Mom & Pop Bed & Breakfast. Dave and Anna Maria, along with our professional team of room attendants, innkeepers, chef and concierge, will do everything to make your vacation memorable. Whether it’s kayaking through the straits and picnicking on a nearby island, relaxing with a spa day or having a private therapist come to your suite, playing 18 on the local course, day tripping to Orcas, or relaxing on one of our many decks, we’ll help you plan your stay and make it the best.
Before moving to the Islands in 2005, Dave worked as a software engineer and Anna Maria in public broadcasting. They worked and played hard. What drew them to the life as innkeepers was their love of entertaining, cooking, and sharing freshly cooked meals using the harvest from their garden with family and friends.
Both Anna Maria and Dave are certified scuba instructors and enjoy many other outdoor activities including golfing, hiking, gardening and downhill skiing. Anna Maria is a classically trained flutist. Since moving to the Islands, Dave has taken up flying. He puts his hobby to good use year round flying N8485M for his regularl off-island supply missions procuring the freshest seasonal produce from neighboring farms for the Harrison House Suite’s breakfast table.
Harrison House Suites – A Pet-Friendly Inn
Harrison House Suites is one of the only Inns in historic Friday Harbor that is pet-friendly. We welcome our four-legged friends in our suites and cottages at this Friday Harbor Bed and Breakfast. Our chefs bake specialty, wholesome dog biscuits and pup cakes for your furry friend following the tradition that Mollie, the Inn’s posthumous yellow lab, began many years ago.
