Our Guest Books

It wasn’t that long ago when packing for vacation, one of my mandatory errands was to Serendipity books, just around the corner on A Street in Friday Harbor. I would spend hours going through piles of old books choosing the perfect ones for my holiday. Sometimes I needed an additional suitcase for all my reading material. Now those dog eared pages have been replaced by a small digital screen that fits conveniently in my purse.

We expected a similar change to have taken place with the Harrison House Suites and Tucker House Inns’ guest books. We thought the act of hand writing a note in your room’s guest journal would go by the way side replaced by the  social media conversations about the Inns on TripAdvisor and Facebook. We are thrilled to be proven wrong! It is gratifying that our guests take time from their vacation to write an entry about their stay with pen and paper. It is a more intimate and personal sharing. Our guest books include beautiful penmanship that shows a bit of one’s personality, other entries include a simple sketch, a poem or even a song. At times, I feel like I am reading entries in a diary.

Over the years we have amassed hundreds of guest books with thousands of entries. We love reading each and every page. They tell a story about who stayed with us, who they were traveling with, when they stayed, what they did when they were visiting San Juan Island,  if they were celebrating something special and where they were from. Below we share a few of the more colorful renderings.
