Friday Harbor House
No car required here. Ride the ferry through the San Juan Islands and the Salish Sea to San Juan Island itself, and walk two blocks to the Friday Harbor House where 23 modern guest rooms and suites have Arts and Crafts furniture, fireplaces, and oversize jet tubs, and most rooms have views of the harbor and pine-covered islands.
Room to Book: Any room with a full view of Friday Harbor and Brown and Shaw islands.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
