Paid a premium price for a sub par room with few amenities. There is no view of the water ! Room very small, bed totally broken down and extremely uncomfortable, guests arriving and leaving at all times of the night, breakfast presentation very poor (stale bread & moist granola parceled out in paper bowls & placed in basket the day...

Thank you for allowing the Deer Harbor Inn the opportunity to respond to this review. The travelers discussion with me about her critique of the Inn and request for financial refund were considered and denied. I strongly feel our property is accurately described and honestly pictured on our web site. Also the use of of paper cups and bowls is... More

We stayed in the Orchard Cottage, number 2. We really enjoyed our two night stay last week-end, perfect get away The king size bed was great, nice and clean, hot shower..Close to whale watching and we saw much of the J pod, great time, great place. The Deer Harbor Restaurant is great too. Michele M.

Our hiking group recently stayed at the Deer Harbour Inn when we traveled to Orcas to enjoy it's natural beautuy. The lodge worked perfectly. They supplied baslets with breakfast to each room- cereal,juice, toast, yogurt and hard-cooked eggs. The rooms were comfortable and clean. There was a lounge area for us all to congreagate for an end of day for... More

We extended our trip on Orcas Island for 2 days by checking in to Deer Harbor Inn on Sunday night after camping at Moran State Park for two nights in September. I can work remotely part of each week, so I did an early schedule then we did more exploring in the late afternoon and evening. The island felt different... More

Took a chance and booked a room at Deer Harbor Inn. We were very happy with the room. They provided a good continental breakfast each morning and the place was clean and tidy. We were very satisfied and happy with the accommodations.

We stayed in a downstairs lodge room & were very pleased with the accommodations. We were a little worried as when I called a couple of wks prior to get info, the woman was very rude & I almost didn't book for that reason but we're glad we did. The downstairs rooms don't have views & the Inn is not... More

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
