Whale Watch  Lime Kiln State Park San Juan Island

Hiking in our incredibly gorgeous State of Washington is its own reward. Every cell in your body gets energized, your heart is pumping and after an especially steep stretch, your body is flooded with endorphins, making you feel happy and giddy to be alive. Then there is hiking on San Juan Island with its clean, salty air, tons of wildlife and beautiful surroundings. Just when you think, it can’t get any better than this with the eagles, the foxes and the wildflowers, you come around a corner with such a spectacular view, it might just take your breath away.

A Wedding at the Bird Rock Hotel on San Juan Island

We here at the Bird Rock Hotel love people in love. We love putting little notes in our guest’s rooms when there is an anniversary to celebrate. We love getting fresh roses, champagne and salted caramels for sweet Honey- and Babymooners. We get really excited when somebody plans to propose while staying with us;  even more so if we get to suggest some of our favorite places to pop the question.

Winter Vacation on San Juan Island, Washington

San Juan Island and its quaint coastal town of Friday Harbor are especially charming in the Winter.

Christmas on South Beach, San Juan Island, Washington

As awesome as Christmas can be, it can also be a challenging holiday for many of us with the stress of holiday shopping and visiting family. Last year, I decided to make a change and do something different. I vowed instead to spend Christmas morning at a beach on San Juan Island with the man I love.
