Are you ready to go beyond the obligatory box of chocolates, plush bear and red roses this Valentine’s Day? Come treat your love (and you!) to an unforgettable Romantic Winter Getaway in beautiful Friday Harbor!
Leave the car behind in Anacortes, walk on the ferry or easier yet, take Kenmore Air from Lake Union/Seattle and be here in just 45 minutes. Enjoy our romantic, small town and all it has to offer. You deserve it.
Here are a few ideas on what to do:
Have goodies in your room upon arrival
When making your hotel reservations at the Earthbox Inn & Spa also reserve a chilled bottle of champagne, a fresh bouquet of flowers, island made chocolate truffles or whatever else your heart desires. If we can find it and put it safely in your room, consider it done!
Indulge your Senses at our Spa
Treat yourself to a soothing massage, body or face treatment in at our lovely Spa. How about an Open Sky Signature Couple’s Massage, a traditional Swedish massage, incorporating hot stone work, a mini facial, aromatherapy and exfoliation?
Walk to Dinner
Everything in Friday Harbor is in walking distance to the Earthbox Inn & Spa. Maybe you want to experience Gustatory Rapture at the COHO Restaurant--they’ll put on a five course, price fixed menu for Valentine’s you can’t help but fall in love with.
Walk on the Beach
Jackson’s Beach, a delightful drift wood beach with an old salmon cannery on its spit, is only a mile from the Earthbox. Take a leisurely stroll there or can we dare you to take our Beach Cruiser Bikes on a ride?
Friday Harbor is a hub for art galleries and museums. The San Juan Island Museum of Art, just a block from the Earthbox, is dedicated to showing arts of the Pacific Northwest and Southern British Columbia, emphasizing our unique environment and a sense of place.
Go see Big Fish
It is not the high season to see our resident killer whales, but their big brothers the Humpbacks have been around, as well as Steller seas lions, porpoises, bald eagles and every sea bird you can possibly imagine. Capt. Our friends at Maya’s Legacy Whale Watching go out year-round.
Learn about Big Fish
Go visit the Whale Museum, a fantastic natural history museum overlooking the harbor. Maybe you will adopt an Orca whale together for Valentine’s?
Go for a swim
Earthbox Inn & Spa is the only hotel on San Juan Island with an indoor heated pool, dry sauna & hot tub. What a perfect way to warm up after playing on the beach all day!
When was the last time you went bowling? Paradise Lanes, Friday Harbor’s quaint, old-fashioned bowling alley, is across the street from the Earthbox.
Herb’s Tavern has live music on weekends. Push those tables aside, grab the one you love and dance like nobody is watching.
Life is too short not to choose love. We can’t wait for your visit.
