If you think Summer is the best time to come to the island, you might be surprised to learn that Fall is actually our pick for best travel time. Typically the weather is steady at comfortable temps in the high 60's; there are fewer visitors, so less traffic and waiting in line; service personnel have a chance to actually give you personalized attention. If you're coming to the island for the beauty and relaxation, you'll find it most abundant in the Fall. We've put together our list of Top 10 Things to Do in the Fall. Learn more...

September Recipe
Stone Fruit Tart  http://www.harrisonhousesuites.com/food-wine/

Stone Fruit Tart
We are still getting luscious apricots, peaches, nectarines and cherries from our Eastern Washington farmers. Our Fall tart can be made with any stone fruit you'd like; just make sure it's ripe. Taking time to arrange the fruit in a decorative pattern adds to the visually beautiful dessert. It's also lovely with coffee in the morning, or as an afternoon pick-me-up.  Learn more...

Upcoming Events

Fall is when the locals start to enjoy a little more free time, and the events this time of year reflect a very "down home" flair. This means visitors have the opportunity to experience the island from an entirely different perspective, and learn the more subtle charms of this wonderful island we call home. Learn more...
We hope you'll have the opportunity to visit the island during our favorite time of year. But if you can't make it, we hope our newsletter contents will offer you a vicarious visit.
