The Tucker House Inn & Harrison House Suites are an exclusive Friday Harbor lodging property. Every guest is both important and special to us. Our policies are for the comfort and convenience of all of our guests.
We understand that as the impact of the coronavirus (COVID‑19) continues to unfold, guests have questions and concerns about their upcoming travel plans. Our team of innkeepers is always available by phone and email to assist you.
Rates: By accepting the Guest Stay Contract you agree to our charging your credit card for all payments associated with your stays and any and all fines or damage incurred during your stay. All of our rates are based on double occupancy. There is a $25 per night additional person charge for adults over 2, $20 per night charge for children over age 7 and under 16, and children under age 7 are free. Rates are subject to Washington State lodging and sales tax of 10.3% and 10.5% starting July 1. Our rates are tiered: high season – July and August, summer season – June and September; shoulder season – October and March, April, May; winter season – November through February. During the shoulder and winter season, we have weekend and weekday rates (Sunday – Thursday).
Minimum Stays: There is a two-night minimum required for all stays between June and September, weekends and holidays; a two-night minimum stay is required in Sunshine Suite year round. This is waived for last-minute bookings based on availability. We do offer one-night stays based on availability with a nominal cleaning surcharge depending on the size of the accommodation. For those on multi-day kayaking trips, we will waive the cleaning surcharge for staying two non-consecutive nights.

Specials/Certificates: Please call to make your reservation if you are using a coupon, voucher, or gift certificate valued at more than 50% of your total stay. Our online reservation system will automatically charge a one-night deposit. Since payment in full is required one week prior to arrival, your credit card will be charged in full if we have not been notified of your intent.

For multi-night stays, you may place all your breakfast orders at once (simply select the date for each delivery) or up until each afternoon prior by 4:30 p.m. If you are leaving before our breakfast delivery times, we are happy to provide a to-go breakfast for you. Please call us before noon the previous day to order. We are happy to accommodate dietary restrictions, allergies, or preferences for breakfast. Please let us know at least 24 hours in advance of your arrival. Breakfast is not included for guests staying in our vacation rental, Sunshine Suite.
Smoking: This Friday Harbor establishment is non-smoking. Washington State law prohibits smoking within 20 feet of a door or window. Evidence of smoking inside your guest accommodation will be assessed a $250 cleaning fee.
Pets: Friday Harbor is a pet-friendly community and there are plenty of parks – one right across the street – for dog walking. The inn is pet-friendly in specified suites and cottages, and pets must be declared when making your reservation. There is a $25 fee per day, per pet, although certified service dogs are exempt from daily pet fee. Please note: certified therapy dogs are not covered under the ADA laws, and are subject to daily pet fee. Furry friends are not to be left unattended at the inn under any circumstances. Guests are responsible for cleaning up after their pet and for any and all damage, including noise.
Washington’s Law Against Discrimination defines service animals as animals that have been trained to assist or accommodate people with physical, sensory, or mental disabilities. Similarly, under the ADA, a service animal is a dog that has been individually trained to perform tasks or do work for the benefit of a person with a disability. The tasks or work the animal does must be directly related to the person’s disability. Please note: certified therapy dogs are not covered under the ADA laws, and are subject to daily pet fee and our pet policy. Read through the Washington State Human Right Commission’s “Guide to Service Animals and The Washington State Law Against Discrimination.”
Families: We welcome children of all ages in designated suites and cottages because of the privacy these Friday Harbor accommodations offer. All children must be accompanied by an adult; please do not leave children unsupervised in the room. We have an “Adults Only” policy for guest rooms. We have pack and plays for infants; please let us know that you will require one when making you reservation. Children 7 and under stay free!
Groups: We welcome the opportunity to host your retreat, seminar, wedding or family reunion. With advance planning, the entire facility may be privately reserved. Catering is available.
Quiet Hours: For the safety and comfort of all of our guests, we observe quiet hours from 10 p.m. – 9 a.m.
Transportation: Though we are only a block and a half from the ferry, please advise us upon booking if you require assistance with transportation from the ferry or from the Friday Harbor airport (located a mile from the inn).
Concierge Service: Explore the island’s offerings on your own or allow us to help you arrange your adventures. You may want to consider a day of kayaking, scenic flights, hikes, biking, sailing or fishing. San Juan island also offers scuba diving, whale watching, golfing, shopping, theatre, and fine dining – just to name a few of the exciting possibilities!
Property Damage: Guest authorizes up to a $500 charge on their card upon departure in the event of property damage. Damage includes, but is not restricted to: noise complaints, common or private property damage, excessive cleaning requirement, lost, broken, or missing common or private property items, smoking inside the property, pet damage inside the property, and all charges relating to security company or police involvement regarding property occupant’s behavior while in the property or on common premises.
