Archie’s Family Friendly

Archie’s Suite is our largest suite. The suite has a double size hide-a-bed w/new foam mattress for young children to share or for one older child. The kitchen table easily seats four people. Three Aerobeds are available if children prefer to sleep in sleeping bags on the floor – camping is so much fun for kids. We also offer a baby bed/playpen for infants up to a year.

Etta’s Small Family Friendly

This studio is also perfect for a romantic weekend away from the kids.  Etta’s Suite is comfortable for couples or  a couple with a small child. The eat-in kitchen with a drop-leaf table seats four.  A baby bed/playpen for infants up to a year or age is available. If you have a toddler or small child up to age 8, we do have an Aerobed and sleeping bag available for sleeping on the floor.

Travel by Car

Prior to traveling by car to San Juan Island, make sure you make a ferry reservation – WashDot/Ferries

Note: if you plan to park your car at the ferry terminal and walk on the ferry (recommended on busy holiday weekends), you do not need a reservation.

From Seattle, drive North on Interstate 5 to Anacortes, Washington, follow the signs to the San Juan Islands Ferry.  Purchase your ticket at the toll booth and follow instructions to the Friday Harbor lanes. The ferry staff will assist you for boarding and departing the ferry in Friday Harbor.

Indoor Fireplace

Etta’s Suite has a very romantic electric fireplace that emits a warm glow throughout the living space for that romantic weekend. This little fireplace also provides heat to ward off a morning chill.

Private Bath w/ Shower

All suites have private en-suite baths with showers. We live on an island with limited water reserves so we did not install bathtubs in our suites.  To help us conserve our natural resources, we do not offer daily room or towel exchanges. Extra towels are available if needed.  All bathrooms include a hairdryer and bathing amenities.

Travel by Plane

There are two options for traveling by Plane:

From SeaTac Airport, Seattle to Lake Union or Kenmore

Kenmore Air


From Bellingham, Washington

San Juan Airlines

What Our Guests Say

My boyfriend and I stayed for just a weekend, had the best time! Carol was so warm & welcoming. :) Such a short walk from the ferry, we ended up walking on w/ our bikes. The place was so cozy and beautifully decorated too! Great bathroom (big shower), great bed, full kitchen tools, and,...even had an air conditioner unit for us going b/c it was actually one of the few wknds hot enough! Carol was typically always around if we needed anything or just asking for some restaurant tips :) Highly recommend!!! We will be back for sure!!
JGreat Location, Beautiful Place, Wonderful Host!!
Our stay at Etta's Place was wonderful! The upstairs unit is a perfect size for a couple with a great kitchen and dinning area. The unit was very clean and well kept and the owner, Carol, was very helpful with info and tips about the island. We had a fantastic time in Friday Harbor w/out a car! Etta's Place is only a few blocks away from the ferry terminal and from all the main restaurants and shops so locations is great! I'd absolutely go back and stay at Etta's place again!
Leo G.Hidden gem in a great location!
My wife and I stayed at Etta's Place for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We rented the apartment with the kitchen which was perfectly stocked with all of the right cooking utensils. The location is perfect in that you can walk anywhere within the downtown area and are close to restaurants and shopping. The apartment was clean and charming and Carol was extremely helpful in supplying directions and information. We would definitely stay there again when we next visit Friday Harbor.
Glenn S.A great place to stay
