We found this place lacking somewhat. Other than a cleaner we saw no other staff. There didn't seem to be anyone running the place or to be putting any effort into the site and to be honest it showed. We stayed for a long weekend. We were sceptical based on the reviews but there was no other availability on Orcas.... More

The Deer Harbor Inn regrets we did not live up to your expectations. We agree we need more attention to the grounds. Auguest is extremely busy for us and we did not keep up with our yard work. In a small kitchenette we can not stock every utensil but are able to supply anything needed upon notice. We do supply... More

I spent a long weekend on Orcas Island for a friend's wedding. I chose the Deer Harbor Inn because I've stayed dockside in Deer Harbor previously and liked the quieter atmosphere on the West-side of the island. Deer Harbor is actually West of "West Sound"; the opposite side of many of the tourist attractions on the island (i.e. East Sound... More

Four of us (2 couples) stayed for 2 nights in the Pond cottage during the week after July 4 and we absolutely loved it. As many have mentioned, we arrived, picked up our key from the empty office, and never saw another person the entire stay! Privacy, away from everything, solitude. That will immediately probably segregate those that will love... More

Deer Harbor Inn is a great get-away. It is quiet and relaxing. There are many deer and rabbits on the property. The breakfast is a great simple meal with wonderful raisin bread that makes good toast. The cottage was clean and very comfortable. We biked to Eastsound -- lots of ups and downs and traffic. It will be a place... More

My gal and I stayed in an orchard cottage for 2 nights. It was in nice condition. Looked like it had some updated things. The hot tub is a nice too! This place is a little bit off the beaten path, so I wish the information given regarding amenities were complete so that we could have prepared a bit more.... More

We spent our anniversary here. We were looking for something low key and relaxing, which this was. We rented one of the cabins with a private hot tub. We had instructions to come into the office upon arrival to get the key but found the office locked. Another couple arrived shortly after and as we wondered what we were supposed... More

The Deer Harbor Inn extends an apology for the faulty hot tub. The prior guest had turned the tub off and left the lid off overnight so it was cold but I did test the tub and it had the proper balance of sanitizer applied. More

The Deer Harbor Inn is a unique place to stay. We stayed for two nights, in one of the Log Cabin Lodge rooms, but never saw the people who run/own the place. When you arrive (between 4PM-9PM) all you do is go into the office and pick up a little bag, setting on a table, with your name on it.... More

Beautiful location walking distance from Deer Harbor and preserved nature area. Charming and rustic, the lodge where we stayed really captured that classic Pacific Northwest spirit, which I love. Amenities are basic but there was a hair dryer and mini fridge in the room, as well as a coffee maker and toaster and continental breakfast provided in a little basket,... More
