My husband and I stayed in Orchard Cottage #1 for a two night getaway. It was better than expected. There have been upgrades done since the pictures were taken. The bathroom was clean and bright, including a bathtub. A very nice leather couch and kitchenette with a sink and burners were a huge bonus for us, as my husband has... More

The room was clean and cute and worth $79 per night. A $149 room should not have: poor insulation. (you can hear the toilets flush in all 6 rooms in the building). It is advertised as a B & B, and they served a small bottle or orange juice and a small yogurt. That's all, and that is not a... More

$149.00 is a fare rate for a cute, clean room with a private bath. We do not advertise that we are a B and B. I have never seen a room for $79.00 on any of the San Juan Islands. More

Next time will stay in the cabins but it was a very nice clean room. Good bed. Great meal at the restaurant- best homemade soup I've ever had and a beautiful view if you sit near the back or on the deck. Not on the beach but a view. The island is a big enchanted forest

The owners are very unco-operative and unhelpful. I had an emergency that prevented me from making the trip. They basically said, "too bad, so sad". Be aware that as they are on an island, and you need to take two ferries to get there, and ferries do get cancelled, or won't let you board, that you can lose your deposit... More

We purchased a two night stay with a groupon. After reading some of the reviews, I was interested to see what our experience would be. Our room was clean, well stocked, warm and cozy. The hotel staff we interacted with (the room attendant) was so warm and friendly. We felt very at home. Our bed was extremely comfortable . We... More

I was unable to get the Deer Harbor Marina to come up on this so sorry, this is not about the Inn. I will get to the restaurant close to the Inn after I talk about the marina. I have been sailing to the San Juan's for over 20 years. Deer Harbor is one of my favorite spots. Located on... More

My friend and I decided to get away for a few days and visit Orcas Island after we found a Groupon for a 50% off 2-night stay in the main lodge. The room was cozy, heated and well-furnished (even had a mini-fridge where we could store the snacks and wine we brought). Check-in was a breeze and we were able... More

Heading to the Deer Harbor Inn, we were looking forward to a getaway with our own cabin, full kitchen, free standing stove and private hot tub. Shortly after arriving on 12/6/15, a storm hit and the power went out. While we tried to make the best of it with a battery operated lantern, we soon came to find out, no... More
