We went in the off-season and had a lovely quiet romantic time visiting a fabulous island. The breakfasts were amazing, the views were gorgeous, and her hostess was so kind and friendly! It is a bit off the beaten path, but so relaxing! The art co-op just down the road is worthy of a major city. Their art, staff, and... More

We went for the New Year's Eve, which is off-season, and as I result we were the only guests staying at Ann's beautiful B&B. The Library Room is amazing, and we really could just have stayed there for days and days on end browsing the impressive selection of books. Ann's breakfasts are a work of art, beautifully served and very... More

What a wonderful vacation we had! Ann is such a gracious host. We stayed in the Library Room for 5 nights and felt very spoiled to have our own private balcony looking out over the water where we could enjoy a cup of tea as we skimmed through the many books from her floor to ceiling shelves. There were often... More

My husband and I have traveled to Orcas many times over the last six years but have never explored west and south of Moran State Park. Just by chance we read several reviews via Trip Advisor about the Sand Dollar Inn, which were all very positive. The Sand Dollar and its proprietor Ann are a rare find and was probably... More

The Sand Dollar Inn reflects the peace and tranquility that encompasses Orcas Island. It was heavenly to start our day sitting out on the roof top deck overlooking Buck Bay. We savored Ann's delicious and beautifully presented breakfasts on her sun porch. Our room was lovely, very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Ann is a gracious hostess and we felt very... More

I have never wanted to stay in a Bed And Breakfast. I didn't want to share space with anyone and never a bathroom; are you kidding me? However since we stayed with @ The Sand Dollar Inn- I have changed my mind. I think being the only couple there helped me. We stayed in the Library Room and being a... More

The Sand Dollar Inn is a pleasant B&B in a beautiful spot. My wife picked it because of the proximity to Moran State Park and Doe Bay (right in between the two). Ann is a gracious host, and quite able to relate to traveling guests as she seems to be a widely traveled person herself (and a pilot!). We were... More

Anyone who wants to stay away from the tourist crowds should venture to this little hamlet called Olga and stay at this warm and inviting place run by an adventurous and charming lady who is also an excellent cook. The breakfast could not have been better. Excellent starting point to explore the Mt. Constitution and the southern tip of the... More

My husband and I stayed here for our 1st year anniversary. I'm always looking for a hidden gem off the beaten path and this place exceeded my expectations. Ann, the owner, was hospitable and made arrangements for our anniversary dinner at the "nicest restaurant in town." We were pleased with her kindness and her cooking was outstanding!

We visited the quaint Sand Dollar Inn last May. What a hidden treasure it is! It is decorated with such a home warming feeling. The proprietor, Ann, is a fabulous cook and made us all feel so welcome. Ann made arrangements for us to go whale watching, which turned out to be an exciting adventure. I would highly recommend this... More
