Orcas, Orcas Island, San Juan Islands, Washington
At the junction of two designated scenic byways, our Kingfish Inn is a treasured Orcas Island secret. It is just steps away from the sparkling waters of West Sound and a leisurely stroll from the bucolic Verdant farmlands of Crow Valley.

Our alluring heritage inn started in a historic 1902 clear fir framed building is a gem. The Intimate Inn, with only four suites each uniquely furnished, offers gracious country comfort. It is furnished with comfort in mind, not at all pretentious, yet undeniably elegant. Our cozy Inn is the personification of Orcas Island, the most varied and diverse of the islands in San Juan County, Pacific Northwest Washington.

Each of our guest suitess are furnished in our signature style that assures gracious country comfort. We work hard to achieve this seemingly effortless look that is not all preten...

Having operated Dream Cottages on Orcas Island for many years, we appreciate our guests desire for a more romantic and private lodging experience. We strive to provide that cozy and intimate, yet comfortable space for our Inn guests.

Our Inn-Keeper does a complete prior to check-in walk through and leaves a card with your name on the door and keys in door for guests to check themselves in. Check in is at 4:00p.m.; check out at 11:00 a.m.

We respect your privacy and unless asked, no one enters your space while you are here. Lie in bed all day with a good book or just sit still looking at the ever changing views from your window.

*Housekeeping is provided every 3rd day of your stay. More frequent cleans by prior arrangement.

Very nice cabin with all the amenities needed for a relaxing stay. Really pretty view of the sound and back patio to enjoy it on.

Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. Our Spruce Suite with its own private deck with water views is the one most requested at our Kingfish Inn. Please come back and try one of our other suites.

You don't meet anyone when you get there. You just walk upstairs, find your room with a key and your name on it, and get in. In the open hallway, there is microwaveable popcorn, chips, a lot of other junk food... as well as an instant coffee/hot chocolate maker, which was totally awesome. The view of the bedroom was outstanding....

Management response:

Thank you for your kind words. All our Suites upstairs have pull down blinds as well as the light curtains. We will add this information to our house rules so that our next guests do not have to wake any earlier than comfortable. While we respect your privacy, know that we are always available when guest are in need.

We had a room looking out to the water with a queen bed called the Alder Suite. It was lovely! I can not say enough good things about this place. We had an issue in our bathroom, and the owner was very prompt in fixing it. The restaurant on property is amazing as well. We ate dinner there twice. I...

About the neighbourhood
Orcas Island, located between the U.S. Washington State mainland and British Columbia's Vancouver Island (Canada), is considered to be the most spectacular of the San Juan Islands.

Rural in nature with a shape that creates more waterfront than most islands. You will be driving down valleys up hills and down to the water in minutes. Views are ever changing but always beautiful. Kingfish Inn is on the corner of Crow Valley and Deer Harbor Roads--both designated scenic byways. Water and the verdant valley are both minutes away.
Getting around
The odd and shape and the ever-changing topography of Orcas Island makes it difficult to navigate without a car. T

he island is 54 square miles BIG, and rather than circular, roads branch out in fingers with hamlets, villages and artists communities at the end of each (all with their own unique character).

Guests can bring a car on the ferry or if coming on island by plane. . . have a car waiting for you at the airport, or in the case of Spruce Suite at Kingfish Inn, waiting for you at the dock as you fly into the waters of West Sound via Kenmore's float plane.
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Eastsound: 12.0 km
Ferry: Orcas: 6.0 km
Most guests arrive on island via the Washington Ferries departing from Anacortes. The ferries carry both car and foot passengers and the trip to Orcas Island scenic. For those looking for an adventure, we recommend Kenmore airline's float planes that leaves from Lake Union in Seattle and land right in front of Kingfish Inn on the waters of West Sound.
