Spacious Rooms at Historic Seaside Resort

In 1886, lawyer John McMillin took over a small log trading post on the northern end of San Juan Island. Within just a few years, he transformed the post into the West Coast’s main producer of builders’ lime. At his private home on the island, he welcomed a string of distinguished guests, including President Theodore Roosevelt. That guesthouse now stands as the central building of Roche Harbor Resort, a sprawling property with a full-service marina and panoramic views of the sea. Hints of the past are scattered throughout the grounds, where you’ll find defunct limekilns, old photos, and a grecian memorial to McMillin.

Near the resort’s network of gardens and cobblestone walkways, you’ll find the spacious McMillin suites, tucked into a historical home on a bluff overlooking the harbor. Each features a king-size bed, a clawfoot bathtub, and heated bathroom floors. Quarryman Hall rooms are situated in a boutique hotel near the center of the village. For a relaxing experience, indulge in a caviar facial at the onsite spa.

One of three restaurants onsite, the waterfront McMillin’s Dining Room faces the 377-slip marina, which provides direct entry to Canada 15 miles to the north. Chefs draw from regional farms and fresh local fish to craft a menu of Pacific Northwest cuisine, including steaks from 45-day-aged wagyu beef and flame-seared halibut. At the Lime Kiln Café, locals and visitors alike stop by in the morning for casual breakfast fare and pastries.

Friday Harbor, Washington: Charming Island Town with Whale Watching

Friday Harbor is the largest city in the San Juan Islands—an archipelago on the northwestern edge of mainland Washington. Restaurants, boutiques, and cafés line the town’s main street, which slopes up from the harbor and over a small hill. Many of the wood-framed shops and galleries were constructed in the early 20th century. At a number of local establishments, you can browse old photos to imagine island life before organized ferry services and cyborg fishermen. The San Juan Historical Museum, housed in an 1894 farmhouse, features exhibits that re-create the experiences of walking through a root cellar, a milk house, a carriage house, and other historical buildings. To get close to nature, head to Lime Kiln Point State Park, where you might spot eagles, seals, or a feral lighthouse.

Historical, beautiful, remote property. The Deluxe King Suite exceeded our expectations, gorgeous views of the harbor out of every window. Quiet and peaceful.

The condo unit was spotless. Well laid out, comfortably furnished & equipped. Terrific views. Complex was very quiet at night. Bed was comfortable. Water pressure in shower was great. Staff at check-in were friendly & helpful. Gave us some great suggestions for places to eat in town. Enjoyed the resort's Lime Kiln Cafe. (Excellent choice for breakfast & lunch.) Only negative: wifi in the condo is spotty. But with the beautiful views and easy access to San Juan County Park & Lime Kiln State Park, who needs it?
