We stayed here for two nights and had an incredible time. We traveled with our two girls (3yo and 8 months) and absolutely enjoyed everything. The innkeeper, Shana welcomed us at 11pm as we traveled from another island in the late ferry. She was incredibly friendly and helpful. We stayed in the lilac suite and the staff put sweet little...

We had a very restful stay at the farm. Rooms are small but clean and have everything you need. There were turkeys and chickens right outside our door. We will definitely stay here on our next visit to Orcas Island. Thank you Shana!

Shana is an unusual innkeeper: welcomed us with tales how she needs to sell her property quickly... before the state collapses in the next imminent earthquake and her home is buried under the sea! Then daily emails with provisos and excuses: not her fault only one roll of toilet of paper was left for a four day rental (we rented...

We never booked a room. Our unfortunate phone encounter discouraged our stay and I will definitely not recommend to anyone we know that frequent the islands. Perhaps falsley advertising a dog friendly stay is not a solid business model.

We stayed 4 nights at Sleeping Sea's King Suite on Orcas Island. This room is located on the top floor of a home, with outside stairs to access the suite. The view to the water and Sucia Island were wonderful, and we enjoyed the semi-private beach access. The house is located about 10 min from Eastsound Village, on the north...

STAY AT YOUR OWN RISK. A group of friends visiting from out of town decided to take a short trip to Orcas for a weekend and we found Sleeping Sea through an online search. The location suited our purposes since there were rooms to accomodate 11 of us. When we called to book our reservation, the owner/manager - Shana -...

I wish I had read the previous review about the barking dogs near Sleeping Sea's Cottage in Friday Harbor. There were at least 4 dogs in close proximity: braying hounds, yippers, and woofers. Kind of hard to relax with all that racket, and I specifically said when booking that I wanted a peaceful rental.. One neighbor came out at 8...

My husband, my mother and I stayed with Sleeping Sea over Mother's Day weekend and we had a great stay. Shana, the owner, was extremely friendly and very helpful from the first time we contacted her about the rental. She really made us feel very welcome. We stayed in the "Cottage" rental on San Juan Island. The place resembles a...

Our family spent 2 nights in Hammock house, Friday harbor. The house is big but a part of it seemed like rented out for another party which I was not informed from any other source. There is numerous warning notice written on sticky notes every wall and doors. Which made us uncomfortable. Garbage disposal was broken and the sink smells....

This is a charming, comfortable vacation rental, offering three seperate lodging units or the entire house for larger parties. We (two couples) stayed in "The Cottage" at the rear of the property which was very secluded and private. We loved the eclectic furnishings and loved having a private deck to enjoy meals on. The town of Friday Harbor is a...

Sleeping Sea is sure to deliver a family vacation that everyone will love or a refreshing escape for two to relax away from it all. There is always something explore, learn, and take home from your stay. But better yet, lay back and nod off while listening to the sheep graze outside your door or the water lapping the shores. ... more   less
