My hubs and I enjoyed the most blissful babymoon getaway two weeks ago. I’m so excited to share the details with you of our weekend away. Given there’s so many beautiful destination options surrounding Seattle, we knew we wanted to choose a location that didn’t require flying. At seven months pregnant at that time, we decided to put all flight travel on hold until well after baby Kung arrives. We’ve heard so many wonderful things about San Juan Island! Everything from the most picturesque water views, the quaint town of Friday Harbor, and the unique island itself. It’s just a short drive and ferry ride over to this stunning island from the city. What more could we ask for?!
We were delighted when Friday Harbor House invited us for a babymoon weekend getaway. This boutique hotel truly offers it all, and made the most perfect romantic experience for my hubs and I. The hotel amenities make this hotel one of a kind, I’ve shared more details on this further below. I fell in love with the stunning marina views from our hotel room window. We watched the ferries coming in and out of the harbor, which is one my favorite things to do! In the evening, we cozied up in front of the fireplace in our room while sipping sparkling apple cider, allowing for us to 100% completely relax. Also, our room featured an oversized jet tub and I loved the beautiful rain shower.
Our stay at Friday Harbor House had an extra dose of pampering with their babymoon package. Greeted with a basket of munchies and delights when we arrived, it made it hard to ever leave our room! We had heard amazing things about their restaurant’s Executive Chef, Jason Aldous and so dining in their restaurant was a highlight. We definitely had to try his dinner and breakfast menu, and the food was incredible!
We arrived earlier in the day to San Juan Island so that we could spend the daytime strolling the adorable town of Friday Harbor. We walked through the cute boutiques, sampled the local home-made chocolate shop, all while sipping hot cocoa and visiting locals along the street. The next day we spent driving and exploring around the island, stopping at the various must-see points recommended by the helpful hotel staff. I fell in love with San Juan Island’s rolling hills and gorgeous coastlines all around. It really is such a magical place!
These breathtaking marina views from our hotel room though!
When you check into your hotel room and the bed looks so comfortable, all you want to do is crawl in and stay forever! Sorry not sorry!
Each room comes with a Puget Sound Dream Kit. I was so impressed with this thoughtful amenity, I had to share this with you guys. Chamomile bath salts, lavender pillow spray and an eye mask, this made our stay feel so personalized.
It’s true luxury with the Friday Harbor House pillow menu. Offering a choice of goose down, organic buckwheat, bamboo pillows and memory foam pillow options. We opted for the memory foam pillows and I seriously don’t remember sleeping this well in a hotel! Comfort at its finest. I wish more hotels provided a pillow menu, this is genius.
These treats are a dream for the pregnant girl! I put on my comfy jammies, poured us sparkling apple cider and we watched the movie Topgun in our hotel room. Little did I know that my hubs’ favorite movie growing up is Topgun, apparently he even collected model planes of F14 Tomcat jets inspired from the movie. Loved learning this little tidbit about him!
We balanced out all the goodies from the night before by following with the most beautiful brunch. I ordered the avocado toast and the yogurt parfait from the menu. I seriously would go back to Friday Harbor House just for these dishes from the menu. Chef Jason Aldous, would you be willing to send these two dishes to me in Seattle? Please! You have me craving these!
Thank you so much to our friends at Friday Harbor House for the babymoon memories that we will cherish always!
