My wife and daughter and I stayed here for the first time and loved it. Steve was helpful and welcoming from the get go--very responsive to our reservation requests, and so helpful when we checked in. The room was so comfortable and spotless, perfect place to kick back after our day excursions on the island. As the inn seems best... More

Great charming place in a pastoral setting which a porch overlooking a valley. Breakfast on the sunlit porch was wonderful, and "High Tea" in the afternoon with cookies and sherry was a treat after hiking or kayaking. I stayed in the main house in a cozy room with a comfortable bed.

Pretty rooms, all with private baths and beautiful views from each window. Warm and cozy "parlor" where you are invited to light the wood burning fireplace, already set for guests. This was a get-out-of-the-soul-sucking heat of Arizona in August and it was everything one could ask for. Susan Fletcher provides a warm, hospitable inn experience with great breakfasts each morning... More

My first time here was just a little memorable since my wife and I married on their property! The place is beautiful and they did a great job helping organize. Her granola is some of the best I've had and since they produced a cookbook, my wife makes it from time to time and brings us back to our romantic... More

Every detail is taken care of here. One of the best places we have stayed. Deer right eating right near the porch. Breakfast was great. Only quibble is that we were not greeted and the breakfast was not explained by the staff. Our Stayman room was large with a great view. Would definitely stay again.

Beautiful place, great getaway. We eloped at the Turtleback Farm. Susan is a miracle worker. Rooms are very clean. No TV but it was wonderful relaxation. Lots of activities to do. We would highly recommend.

Three of us went on a bike touring weekend in the San Juan Islands. This was our first stay at the farm. Steve, the Inns Keeper of 30 years was very helpful, friendly, and courteous. The rooms are typical of an older, yet lovely farm house. Our bikes were stored under the back deck which worked perfectly. Orcas Taxi has... More
