Earthbox Inn and Spa - Friday Harbor

Two-Night Stay at Earthbox Inn & Spa in San Juan Island, WA

Hotel with Indulgent Spa near Whale Watching on Pacific Northwest Island

Just off the coast of San Juan Island, you can often see congregations of Steller sea lions jump up atop the jutting rocks, yelping at boats. Beginning in April, orca whales will start to migrate through the surrounding waters. Residents of the isle have learned to live in harmony with the rugged environment and diverse wildlife of the Pacific Northwest. Earthbox Inn & Spa encourages its guests to explore this area; you can rent complimentary beach-cruiser bikes from the hotel and see the island's wildlife trails and pebble beaches.

The Earthbox's spa uses natural ingredients to soothe aches and pains with hot- and cold-stone massages, body treatments, facials, and nail services. Groupon customers will receive a 20% discount on massage, face, and body treatments if they book them seven days in advance. After a dip in the heated indoor pool or jacuzzi, you can oust toxins in the onsite sauna.

The rooms have a natural color palette that reflects the wilderness outside. Water Place rooms feature one queen bed with a jetted bathtub or a mini deck. Earth Place rooms, meanwhile, boast a larger floor plan and feature two queen beds.

San Juan Island, Washington: Rolling Hills, Quaint Towns, and Striking Fauna

Chugging ferries, weathered fishing boats, and whale tour boats crisscross Friday Harbor's bay, San Juan Island's largest port. A handful of the historical buildings date back to the town’s founding in 1909, though they now assume new identities as eclectic eateries, indie bookstores, and chic coffee shops.

Wildlife cruises can help you get an up-close view of the area's local marine wildlife; depending on the season, orca whales, porpoise, and sea lions can be seen making their way through the chilly waters surrounding the islands.

Just north of Friday Harbor, you can taste different varietals and enjoy barrel tastings at San Juan Vineyards, which is open year-round, while the San Juan Island Distillery is near the northern tip of San Juan island.

We received great customer service. The group on promotion ended, I only had one night, and I ended up getting there very late, so I wasn't able to take advantage of all they had to offer. But they stayed up to welcome the last ferry, had everything waiting with information for exploring. The local soaps were wonderful and the room was great. I appreciated them accepting my dog and the welcome information for him.

So many things were great about this motel! I love the close proximity to the Ferry and Shops. The room was very nice. Love the purple stained wood counter tops. I also loved the bed and the pillow selection. There was every type of pillow you could ever want. I regret we were too busy to use the complimentary bicycles. I would have liked the pool to remain open later.
