We chose to spend three nights at the MacKaye Harbor Inn. Our hope was to spend our days there hiking and kayaking. Our hosts, Robin and Mike, took every care to insure that our goals were fulfilled. They were eager to share their knowledge of the area, which was a great help. The breakfasts were great, and the rooms were... More

We have stayed in many B&Bs, but this is the best yet! Robin and Mike are the warmest, most welcoming innkeepers we have met. We felt like they loved having us in their home. The kayaking is amazing with no-fuss rental of singles after Mike's orientation. We had the room with a balcony overlooking the water -- amazing and well... More

Mackaye Harbor Inn has to be the best ever B&B with it's situation right across the road from from the beach/harbour and great hosts Mike and Robin. We spent 3 nights there recently and used their bikes to explore as much of the island as we could. The breakfasts were amazing and our room was perfect with lovely decor and... More

Go here only if you want gracious beyond compare hosts at the Inn, a sweet location across from a charming cove, bountiful and delicious breakfasts, the chance to see bald eagles, seals, otters, and starfish from kayaks launched right from the beach across the street, and a wonderful refuge. If you want a place that will produce raves, this is... More

I came to Lopez island and the MacKaye Harbor Inn with the thought in mind of demonstrating to my California sister why we Puget Sounders live and love it here… even under our notorious cloud layer. So I picked a place that I thought would be quintessential Pacific Northwest; beautiful water & mountain views, abundant plant & wildlife, and a... More
