My wife and I stayed at the Turtleback Farm Inn at the recommendation of my brother and his wife who had stayed here. We stayed in the Orchard House. Upon arriving, the staff met us and helped us into our rooms, they were very nice and accommodating, and they had clearly been staff here for many summer seasons. When we...

I have stayed here several times and simply love it. Located over working farmland and among the forested hills of Orcas this is a gem. Owners are friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Most rooms feature private patios. Sherry and fresh baked cookies are served in the foyer. Breakfast here is a real treat! Served...

I hate to say it but we have stayed at many B & Bs and this one seems to have lost its appeal. Upon arriving, the owners meet us and went over the paperwork and told us a little about the area but something seemed off. When the owners were telling us about the area, it seemed as though they...

Lovely B&B rurally located on Orcas with great service and scrumptious breakfasts. The B&B is also a small farm that hosts chickens and sheep. Walking the grounds is calming and blackberries are yours for the picking. In the evening, fresh baked cookies or brownies and sherry await. Very comfortable bedding and clean bathrooms are what you want after day long...

This B&B had just what we were looking for: a quiet location on a backroad, lovely view of an agricultural valley and comfortable, charming rooms. The elderly owners are deeply knowledgeable about the island and gave us excellent suggestions of the sights to see. The staff couldn't have been more helpful -- including tracking down advice about a problem with...

Charming B&B "in the shadow of" Turtleback Mountain. A sweet couple manage this delightful restored farm house with class and comfort. A first class breakfast on the deck overlooking fields of grazing sheep preps you for a day of Orca whale exploring. Or choose from many beautifully managed hiking biking trails for amazing vistas of the San Juan islands and...

Turtleback Farm Inn is one of those places that is just so special, it cannot be duplicated. We originally reserved 3 nights but ended up staying a 4th night because we didn't want to leave. There is just something about Turtleback Farm Inn that makes you feel close to nature and so peaceful. The location on 80 acres of sweeping...

I had no idea how perfect this location is. Great hiking on Turtleback Mountain steps away. A short drive to practically every spot on the island - especially easy access to the main town of Eastsound. But you will look forward to getting back to your room. Sweeping views of Crow Valley pasture and forest. We had a lovely deck...

We came over from our home on San Juan Island for one night to go geocaching. I have stayed at very few B&Bs because I like my privacy but this place was amazing! The room was very private and I think all the rooms have their own bathrooms. The bathroom was also cool with a pull-chain toilet and a huge...
