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 -...

My husband was not able to come with me and the kids, so last minute my sister-inlaw came with us and her kids, we had a great time. The cabin was cozy, they gave us extra towels and extra english muffins and organic granola, milk, orange juice, water and fruits. I booked two days thru Livingsocial..can't wait to go back...The...

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...

We booked this sight-unseen through a Travelzoo special...2 nights for the price of one. We stayed in an upstairs lodge room, and found it absolutely delightful. It felt like we were in a treehouse. We could have pulled the curtains, but kept them open all day and night to keep the airy, open feeling. Bed was very comfy, picnic basket...

We booked the Deer Harbor Inn through groupon for two nights. The Inn is an older building but that is definatley part of it's charm. Our welcome basket had apples, orange juice,bananas and granola. The bed was very comfy - the grounds were lovely and it was a very peaceful place. We could hear the people upstairs but after being...

My wife and I spent two nights in late September and had a delightful stay. You have to keep in mind that this is a rustic lodge, not a modern resort hotel, so it isn't fancy. That said, our room had everything we needed. The basket of fruit, muffins, bagels, etc. that they leave each day was a nice touch....

Very low key stay and a bit funky... this is Island atmosphere. My wife and I went there with a Travelzoo deal for a low key relaxing time to celebrate her birthday. The building is historic but rooms are nicely renovated. The rest of the grounds are unpretentious but well maintained. We loved the home made granola in our picnic...

I thought I bought a special two night stay at the Deer Harbor Resort, a place I have always wanted to try. But when we drove out to Deer Harbor and saw signs pointing to 'Deer Harbor Inn' and 'Deer Harbor Resort' we started to get a bad feeling. Yes, I had made a reservation through Travelzoo for a two-for-one...

We are truely sorry the guest had such a bad experience at our Inn.The guest obviously thought they were staying at a different resort and had bad expectations to start with. We try very hard to provide our guest a charming and peaceful experience on Orcas.The guest checked in early and the housekeepers were still doing laundry. We have also...

We found the Deer Harbor Inn through a Groupon deal and stayed in the lodge. The room was very clean and comfortable and the grounds were well kept. It very relaxing and quiet. Some have mentioned that there was a lack of hospitality, but they would come in and replace the breakfast items and any other items that needed to...

Unfortunately I didn't do as much research of the island as I should of. If you want to completely get out of dodge then you should stay here, there is nothing and it's very very quiet. When we got to the place we kinda wondered around looking for a person, when we found the office no one was there just...

Thank you for the valuable comments about the Deer Harbor Inn. It is true that the Deer Harbor Inn is in a small hamlet without much of a town but we feel the is the charm of the Inn. Our rural location is close to whale watching,kayaking and sailing. We try to be in the office when ferries arrive and...
