San Juan Islands Hotels
Friday Harbor House
130 W. St., Friday Harbor
Accommodations in the San Juans are notoriously rustic, but if camping’s not your jam, book a room here. Friday Harbor House has simply outfitted rooms that center around the gorgeous view of the bay that you’ll have right off the porch. They also have a lovely little restaurant and easy walking access to this quaint fishing town.
Leanto operates several campsites on Orcas Island, each one outfitted with a canvas lean-to plus a real mattress, bed, and picnic table, with wool blankets and checkered tablecloths that look straight out of Moonrise Kingdom. The result? All of the good parts of camping (remote landscape, crackling fire, fresh air, family bonding) without any of the tiresome planning and packing.
