We booked the entire Lodge and Pond Cottage to house many of the guests for our daughter's wedding, and had our rehearsal dinner at the wonderful onsite Deer Harbor Restaurant. We even used Deer Harbor Catering for the wedding itself at a different site. It was a fabulous experience from beginning to end with staff members going out of their...

The Pond Cottage was very nice, nicely appointed, stocked very well. The beds were awesome, tho' we do not sleep well on foam. We ate out mostly, the restaurant on site was very nice; not open as advertised. It was expensive! The questionable? We saw no one, called repeatedly to no avail. No cleaning instructions. None of the remotes worked...

Honestly, I got a great deal from groupon, but I would pay full price to stay here. They did some obvious upgrades, so now both rooms have king size beds and a futon in the living room. I would say that six people may have been too many, so next time I would only have four come. If you bring...

My husband and I stayed in Orchard Cottage #1 for a two night getaway. It was better than expected. There have been upgrades done since the pictures were taken. The bathroom was clean and bright, including a bathtub. A very nice leather couch and kitchenette with a sink and burners were a huge bonus for us, as my husband has...

The room was clean and cute and worth $79 per night. A $149 room should not have: poor insulation. (you can hear the toilets flush in all 6 rooms in the building). It is advertised as a B & B, and they served a small bottle or orange juice and a small yogurt. That's all, and that is not a...

$149.00 is a fare rate for a cute, clean room with a private bath. We do not advertise that we are a B and B. I have never seen a room for $79.00 on any of the San Juan Islands.

Next time will stay in the cabins but it was a very nice clean room. Good bed. Great meal at the restaurant- best homemade soup I've ever had and a beautiful view if you sit near the back or on the deck. Not on the beach but a view. The island is a big enchanted forest

The owners are very unco-operative and unhelpful. I had an emergency that prevented me from making the trip. They basically said, "too bad, so sad". Be aware that as they are on an island, and you need to take two ferries to get there, and ferries do get cancelled, or won't let you board, that you can lose your deposit...

This Man cancelled at 3 in the afternoon of the same day. Their is noi excuse for his comments.

We purchased a two night stay with a groupon. After reading some of the reviews, I was interested to see what our experience would be. Our room was clean, well stocked, warm and cozy. The hotel staff we interacted with (the room attendant) was so warm and friendly. We felt very at home. Our bed was extremely comfortable . We...

I was unable to get the Deer Harbor Marina to come up on this so sorry, this is not about the Inn. I will get to the restaurant close to the Inn after I talk about the marina. I have been sailing to the San Juan's for over 20 years. Deer Harbor is one of my favorite spots. Located on...
