Roche Harbor, Washington

Roche Harbor is on the north end of the island about 10 miles from Friday Harbor. We walked along the dock and were able to tour some fabulous yachts that range from 2-4 million dollars and would cost about $10,000.00 to fill the gas tank once.

After having lunch at the local café we walked through the gardens in front of the Hotel de Haro and later had some ice cream. The De Haro Hotel was originally a log cabin built in 1845 and then the existing structure was built around the log cabin in 1886. The hotel was closed in 1942 due to the war and reopened in 1960. During the early years famous people such as Teddy Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and John Wayne stayed there.
