rates & availability

Getting to San Juan Island is a magical experience. Fly from Seattle, Washington, or Vancouver, B.C., to Friday Harbor in approximately 45 minutes, or drive to Anacortes, Washington, where you can board the Washington State Ferry. Vehicle reservations are highly recommended.

Now, here's how to find your way to Bird Rock: We are located at 35 First Street, In Friday Harbor, Washington, just a block and a half from the harbor.

By Ferry

Either on foot or by car:

  • Disembark from the ferry, either on foot or by car.
  • As soon as you touch land, breath - you are on island time now.
  • Turn right, following the cars.
  • After a half a block turn left onto Spring Street (the main street in town).
  • After one block on Spring Street, turn right onto First Street.
  • On your left, at the end of the block, you will find the entrance to Bird Rock Hotel at 35 First Street. 
  • Note the metered street parking around our hotel. Park further up on First Street for longer term parking or park at our sister hotel, The Earthbox Inn & Spa, for free. 

By Air

You will either be flying into the small and comfortable Friday Harbor airport, about six blocks from the Bird Rock. Let us arrange a taxi for you or ask us for directions.

Or you are taking a seaplane into the marina, an exciting and overwhelmingly beautiful flight.  Walk up the marina to Front Street. Then walk up the flight of stairs in front of you. You'll find The Bird Rock to your left.

Don’t worry, you can’t miss Bird Rock.  It’s the big, three-storied, white building that looks like it just jumped out of the 19th century. Come on in; we are waiting for you.
