We booked a room at the last minute when our boat wasn't able to make the trip over to Deer Harbor. We checked in very early and without any human interaction. Grabbed our bag and found our room all ready to go. Nice room - very homey and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was like scrounging... More

Spent 3relaxing nights at Deer Harbor in August. Mornings started with great homemade granola, fresh fruit, English muffin, juice, and Starbucks coffee. Furnishings were comfortable. Loved the framed artwork by local artists. In the evenings, enjoyed the private hot tub on the back deck while watching the stars. You could see Deer Harbor from front deck of cabin1. Had wonderful... More

We arrived in Deer Harbor by seaplane and walked the short distance to Deer Harbor Inn. While it was early in the day our welcome basket and room were ready. The room was spacious and had a mini fridge which was nice. The bed was comfortable and we got a good night sleep. The walls may have been thin, but... More

Photos truly represent what the rooms look like. Ours was spotless and very charming. Picnic basket for breakfast was perfect, as you could either get ready while you ate, or sit at the table by the window and relax. Bunnies and deer love to hang out. And what a surprise the restaurant was! I didn't expect much from the laid... More

We had room #8 (2nd floor on the back side) and it was perfect. Quiet location and while we shared the building (living room) with other guests we never saw or heard them. Very clean with nice furnishings, thick carpet, very comfortable bed. Bathrooom was spacious with plenty of counter space and clean/bright shower and hair dryer. In-room continental breakfast...

We were on Orcas for a wedding with lots of activities for four days. The Inn was very comfortable and accommodating, and the restaurant is excellent. Very convenient, particularly if you're arriving on Orcas at Deer Harbor by boat or seaplane.

We didn't know what to expect. Our trip via boat put us at the deer harbor marina and the deer harbor inn is the only game in town since the resort converted to time share. The inn picked us up at the marina in a stretch limo, it was quite the treat. We stay at the lodge and the room... More

We booked 2 nights at the Orchard Cottage 2 - overall it was really lovely! It felt private, tho other cottages and lodge nearby. Cottage was very clean and the general vibe of the cottage was truly lovely. The decor was just right, the kitchen area was just what we needed. My fave was the bed and the sheets -... More

I just got back from a two night stay at this little gem on Orcas Island. It's probably more like a B&B than an inn. You pick up your key from a table in the office and you don't really interact with any staff, which is ok w/me (although there's a phone if you need to call). There are extra... More
