Archie's Suite Offers the Following

Archie’s is Group Friendly

Archie’s Suite is our largest suite. The suite has a double size hide-a-bed w/new foam mattress for extra adult guests to share. The kitchen table easily seats four people.

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 weekly room cleaning or towel exchanges. Please let us know if you will need linens or towels.  All bathrooms include a hairdryer and a few bathroom amenities.

High Speed Internet Access

We offer high speed WiFi that can be accessed anywhere within or nearby outside the home. The WiFi login will be included with your reservation confirmation.

Television w/Directv

All suites have televisions with Directv programming, though with such a wonderful island to explore, you may not need TV.  😉 If you wish a DVR in Archie’s or Etta’s Suites, please let us know before you arrive. There will be an extra monthly service charge this.

Private Entrance

All suites are entered through the main hallway. Archie’s Suite has a second, easy access, outside entrance. This second door makes the suite perfect for those who may have trouble climbing stairs. The outside entrance is also best for late night pet walk-abouts if you are bringing a small dog with you.

Free Parking on Premises

All suites have one off-street parking space. The parking space in the right side driveway next to the front door is a first come first option. Additional off-street parking is available behind the home. To access use the left side driveway next to the white picket fence. Please park facing the picket fence to allow for turning around to drive out.

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.
