Welcome to The Trumpeter Inn, one of San Juan Island’s premier lodging establishments. Our pastoral estate, designated an official Backyard Wildlife Sanctuary, offers a unique opportunity for guests to enjoy and view deer, fox, trumpeter swans, dabbling ducks and other wetland species. Country quiet, yet less than five minutes from “downtown” Friday Harbor where you can enjoy the island’s charming shops, numerous art galleries and fine gourmet restaurants.In the morning, with a cup of coffee in hand, walk along the country lane or down the meandering trail on the five acre property to visit the miniature goats and alpacas or enjoy the horses and cattle on adjacent pastures. Spend the afternoon in the beautiful gardens featuring a panoramic view of the entire San Juan Valley, and in the distance, False Bay and Washington’s snow-capped Olympic Mountains. In the evening, relax on a lawn chair or private patio and view the sky exploding with stars.The Trumpeter Inn is one of the few San Juan Island accommodations that provides concierge services. We will happily help you arrange for memorable whale watching experiences, kayaking, and romantic dinners.If you are looking for accommodations on San Juan Island, we look forward to welcoming you to The Trumpeter Inn Bed & Breakfast.

Look no further, this is your place to stay! We were only able to stay one night, but after experiencing the B&B we wish we could stay much longer. We can’t wait to come back. Everything was spotless clean, and there were thoughtful touches everywhere. The hosts were extremely nice and accommodating, making sure we were comfortable. The breakfast was incredible. We even got to feed the alpacas! It is a close distance to Friday Harbor, but far enough away to feel like a peaceful retreat.

Great place to stay. A little over 1.5 miles from ferry and town but far enough into the country to enjoy to the fullest. Delicious breakfast, free parking, WiFi, really comfy beds and rooms, the best part of the whole thing was the wonderful service we received from Jon and Sherry. That made our trip. Jon and Sherry, thank you for everything you do to make folks like us feel at home. If we’re ever back this way we’ll be sure to come back to see you.

We roosted here for four nights because it was available when other places we considered were not. From the booking process to our departure our stay was handled by John with the utmost of professionalism and caring. We felt like we were treated like family. The property was well maintained and had just about anything one could ask for from a B & B. The amenities were complete from snacks to toiletries and if we needed anything John or Sherry were at the ready to try to provide it. It was a most pleasant stay and we highly recommend Trumpeter to our fellow travelers.

Room Tip: Front downstairs room is probably the quietest. Away from the kitchen is recommended.

I would highly recommend this place for 2 reasons. 1) The amazing location and the impeccable condition/maintenance of the property and 2) The attentiveness and graciousness of the innkeeper. Even though I had gone there by myself, the owner made me absolutely comfortable and his friendly demeanor makes you feel welcome.
