My husband and I stayed 4 nights in our upstairs room (1 of only 11) with an awesome view of the bay, the daily visitors to the grounds being the local black tail deer grazing (the bucks and does seemingly nonplussed by human presence, and the variety of local sea birds such as Great Blue Herons, Belted Kingfishers, Brandt's Cormorants,...

NO insulation between floors so any guests above you can be heard very well! As a result, did not sleep well either night.

Charming 11-room hotel. Quiet location right on Ship Bay. View off the private balcony is of the bay and trees with a bald eagle nest. Nice size room with a small fridge, coffeemaker and hairdryer included. King bed and free wi-fi. Older CRT TV, but it works fine. Bed was a bit firm for our tastes, but I overheard others...

My wife and I stayed here three days and nights and were treated quite well by the friendly staff. While the physical location of the Inn seems close to a busy street the sound of the island traffic soon fades into a sort of white noise. The only negative thing came about as we were located in an upstairs unit...

We stayed here 2 nights, and loved the grounds with flowers, orchard, garden that supplies their restaurant, eagles and deer to see every day. Our room had a private deck with a view of the water. Breakfast in the morning could be enjoyed on the outside patio, or you could take your coffee to a deck chair on the cliff...

Stayed at the hotel for three days in July. Its a great little place. The rooms are in freestanding four-plexes so they are pretty quiet. All of them face the water with great views. They have a great little restaurant and bar with the latter open until 9pm. The location is ideal. You are minutes to downtown Eastsound and 25...

Fantastic location (central to everything) and built on a bluff with a great view, laid back vibe, really good restaurant, rustic but clean rooms. Sunday nights are a treat as the kitchen is not open but a local group brings a portable brick pizza oven for a nice picnic party. The only thing I would warn people about is the...

This was our first trip to any of the San Juan Islands, which we took it after a 3 day family gathering in Seattle. My wife chose this particular inn after going thru the previous reviews. She made a good choice. The 11 units are new and modern. Each unit had a balcony overlooking the sound. The beds were extra...

What a beautiful place to stay. The grounds and views were spectacular - Right on East Sound, pear orchard, creek, pond, gorgeous flowers, etc. Our room was lovely & the bed was wonderful. But, the best surprise was eating dinner at the restaurant. The owner/chef is quite talented & dinner was amazing. We stayed on Orcas 4 days & this...
