When we made the reservation, we did not plan on bringing the car so we needed a place close to the ferry station. Bird Rock was the perfect choice. The location can't be beat - it is in the middle of everything in Friday Harbor and a great home base for exploring the town on foot with our 7 year old. We were able to stop in and take frequent breaks, enjoyed our own wine and cheese on the patio while the 7 year-old had some computer time and really enjoyed the "little apartment of our own" known as the Whidbey suite. We did bring the car at the last minute and had no problem finding a parking space. However, we were visiting just off the peak season so it may not have been too difficult due to the time of year. I did check out their sister hotel a few blocks away and within easy walking distance. I would not hesitate to stay at either location on our next trip. The staff could not have been any nicer!! Everyone we encountered was so friendly and helpful. The room was divine - the most wonderful bed, loved the decor, and the breakfast was beautiful! Highly recommended "The Place" for dinner and a walk through King's market for all your picnic supplies.
