Orange Creek is an absolutely beautiful place, without a doubt. The overall experience staying there was wonderful, though I'd firmly divide it between the area itself and the facility which I stayed at. The facility was great. Orange Creek inn is a two story building that is almost immediately next to a waterfront (divided only by road). I have to mention the lobby, which is nice, and I enjoyed spending time in it even late at night to watch the darkened seaside, the moths flying outside, or call friends, though the lack of soundproofing in the walls meant I couldn't talk too loud, as the building is fairly small. Some of the views offered from the inn are impeccable, and the driveway entrance is truly amazing, and clearly well maintained: undeniably a reflection of the outstanding service offered here. The innkeeper was an amazing and friendly woman who clearly is extremely proactive and has a strong attention to detail and thoroughness, as she somehow is able to fix issues within just a day or a couple of hours to them being mentioned, and seems to always be seeking ways to improve the facility. On that note, if she sees this review, maybe she'll consider putting more decorations in the hallways, as they are almost frighteningly empty and liminal. In classic family island fashion, there is a store attached to the inn, which has pretty much all of the necessities one would need. The rooms themselves are okay. I didn't have much of an issue with the space, though I'm sure others might. The TV only having one channel when we went there was objectively kind of mediocre, but being able to connect other devices to it made up for it. The fridge and furniture was nice, although a shelf was broken in one of the drawers. The only features of the rooms I seriously have to complain about is the insanely small and restrictive kitchenette, and the bizarre architecture in the bathrooms. The kitchenette worked out okay, but it was so cramped, and there really wasn't even anywhere to really rest food while cooking. As for the bathroom, having a sink hanging almost directly over the toilet seat led to a nasty cut on my leg while getting up from using the toilet. The beds, however, were amazing, and always well maintained, and nothing beats sitting in them, with the lamp adjacent, and listening to the sound of waves nearby. The absolute highlight of Orange Creek is the surrounding area. The adjacent road can make for some nice walks for the not particularly adventurous, and there are plenty of fruit trees (dillies being the highlight) along them, as well as a decent but rather short stretch of sandy beach to walk on before being broken up by rocks. The nearby bay, where docked boats and evidence of a lot of fish-gutting can be rather smelly, but the views at night of a beautiful sunset almost silhouetting . But for the adventurous, such as myself, I'd HIGHLY recommend exploring the channel dividing the land the inn is on from some sort of peninsula, as well as the peninsula itself, which has some incredible, long beach walks (that eventually lead to some sort of other resort or inn or something and a dead end way on the other side) and dense bush that was a rush to explore. I personally recommend getting a bag to hold belongings and carrying it across the channel on a long stick so they don't get wet, noting that the channel itself is quite strong and changes direction sometimes. Swimming in front of the inn is always a thrill, and the constant current keeps the water relatively warm.

I took a five-day trip to Cat Island, it was absolutely beautiful. Staying at Orange Creek Inn felt like visiting family in the best way. It is the perfect place to unplug and enjoy nature. The Cleares were so friendly and inviting. Most definitely a place to revisit. I had an amazing time.

We absolutely loved Orange Creek. The rooms were very clean, we also appreciated the kitchenette. The staff was super friendly and helpful. They picked us up at Arthur’s Town airport. They gave us great advise concerning local questions. The grocery store was great for any extras that we needed. We would definitely stay here again.

We shopped here almost every day. Margret let us look in a room. Unit two. Super impressed by the room. Don't judge a book by it's cover. Would stay here no problem. Orange Creek Beach area was right across the road.

Sherrie was a wonderful host. We had a room facing the beach rose to that experience every morning. Sherrie gave us plenty of options for places to eat, purchase items and for tours for the island. She even arrange our car rental. Cars are not necessary for your stay but needed if you want to tour the whole island, there is options for bikes to move around. Airport pick-up and drop off is also complimentary done by Sherrie the owner of Orange Creek Inn. We rented a car for 2 days, used it to travel to Shana's for my birthday dinner and the next day to see the whole island. Dinner at Shauna was exquisite and the island tour was awesome. We ate at Yardies for Jamaican food and for conch salad. The Heritage was an uplifiting and spiritual experience on the southern part of the island. The beaches across from the Inn is untouched white sand clear blue water where you see sting rays, fishes starfishes etc. Great for kayaking too which we did. We had a chance to mix with the locals on the island, the people are very friendly, mannerly and very helpful. I stayed 5 days in Cat Island and it is unforgettable.. Will definitely return again.

This hotel is the perfect home base for a laid-back vacation, whether it's for catching up on some R&R or really exploring the island at your own pace. They do have airport transfers available, plus bicycles and kayaks available for rent too. The team is so friendly and helpful they had me feeling like I was a long lost relative from the very moment I arrived. The location is nothing short of perfect. I went with a friend and we had an ocean view room, and I have to say that waking up to a view like that is something I would love to be able to do everyday. The hotel is both beach front and creek front, and it is such a unique experience to see the point where the ocean becomes a creek. The surrounding natural environment is just stunning and there's so much of it just within walking distance. There is a convenience store attached to the resort, and at least some rooms do include a kitchenette area so you can easily save and create a more personal experience by cooking your own meals if you would like. But there are also several restaurants nearby to try, including one that's about a 10-minute walk away which also can deliver. Plus there's a bar/liquor store nearby too and who can complain when wine is served at $2 a glass! The room was very clean and well appointed. Nothing fancy (aside from that amazing view!) but suited our needs very well! Hot water worked perfectly and while the shower was a little on the small side, it was just fine and definitely added to the authentic Caribbean feel of the property. There are only a few "downsides" which do not detract from the hotel by any means but could enhance the overall experience: the first being that the area can be remote and cab fares can be pricey. I would recommend renting a car if you'd like to really explore the island otherwise a lot of it becomes inaccessible. Also because the surrounding area is very, very quiet a lot of restaurants and stores were not open and it seemed you had to call well in advance to be able to do anything. Keep in mind too that the resort & convenience store closes down on Saturdays so it's worthwhile to make arrangements beforehand. But again these are all just very minor suggestions. Overall there is very little I will do differently when I go again next time, and for sure I will be back! Just go with great company and a sense of adventure and you'll have a wonderful time! :)

If your looking for nightly social life, shopping, fast food and entertainment venues, then don't pick Orange Creek Inn. However, if you love exploring dozens of natural island features, spending time with caring local Bahamians and enjoy peace & quiet, then Orange Creek Inn is the place for you. By foot, out the front door there are miles of sandy beaches, kayaking in a 2+ mile long mangrove lagoon, mid-island blue holes, caves with bats, beautiful tropical fish and great fishing. Bring along a bicycle (or arrange to rent one there), and the attractions expand many fold. Even with a four week vacation, my wife and I were unable to see all the attractions on Cat Island. The attentive and caring family run facility also provide nice conveniences for those seeking their own daily adventures. There is a well stocked grocery store and a laundromat at the facility. Inside of most rooms is a modestly stocked kitchenette that makes it easy to prepare evening meals when you return from an adventure. Orange Creek Inn provided us with more value than we expected for the low price of the rental.

Trip Adviser has lots of inaccurate information and inconsistencies in how they allow these proprietors to represent themselves...not just at Orange Creek. $107 rate was instantly increased by $21 per person per day for a "resort fee". This is no resort and you get nothing for the fee. Owner said they would uphold $107 price if you call them directly. She charged $15 for 2 mile ride from airport and tried to charge $10 to rent a bike. Shouldn't that be include as part of the resort fee? Good budget inn if you can arrange it for the right price. Pleasant but not great location. No place to eat on location but you can make your own food in room.

Our visit was wonderful!! Mrs Calibre, Adam and Shay where wonderful hosts! The Inn's accommodations were just perfect for us. As I am Vegan, Gluten Free and need to cook my meals. The efficiency king room was the perfect size. I enjoyed cooking our meals every day and being able to walk downstairs to get our necessities was so convienient! Bring your snorkel gear and snokeral across the Inn in the harbor for great starfish, tiger fish and corral. The north end bar which is a quick walk from the Inn was a bar we enjoyed our last night. The owner of this bar is a local resident with great stories, gracious care for its customers and cold local beer!
