The wife and I spent two nights here in mid-January and very much enjoyed our stay. We stayed in room 7 of the lodge and, as others have said, this room has a very nice partial view of the waters of Deer Harbor. Although a bit small, the room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was larger than I... More

I have two issues that make it hard to give them a good review. First, the mattress was shot. The edges were firm and to my liking but the center was soft and worn out. This caused my mate and I to roll in to the center which made for a poor night's sleep and achy backs in the morning.... More

We appreciate your feedback on our property. Even though it is the off season and we are operating with reduced staff there is no excuse made for not returning phone calls. Our apologies. On the issue of the beds we have installed new top quality mattresses in the Rooms and will add a cell phone repeater in the lodge to... More

It's always risky choosing a new place to stay for 4 nights on thanksgiving. We got 2 in the lodge and 2 in a cottage this trip. Lodge is well appointed with two common areas for sitting, reading or Internet surfing. Room upstairs was tidy and small with a view to the harbor. One annoying thing: the smoke detector goes...

Thank you for your feedback and suggestions on how to improve the inn. We constantly strive to improve our guest rooms and last week we re arranged the furniture in a few rooms for a better visual effect. This placed the bed next to an interior wall thus the noise problems. We are immediately going back to the older floor... More

Our stay in the Orchard cottage #2 was amazing, beautiful property - wildlife galore! Breakfast was done cute in a picnic basket with plenty of food and drink. Restaurant on grounds was open for dinner - it was delicious and very friendly and cozy. Very friendly piano player was a really nice unexpected touch. Hot tub was really nice to... More

I stayed during August and what a great place. The room was very clean, a simple breakfast was provided daily, it was nothing fancy but it was a good snack to start the day and I enjoyed my stay a the hotel. It was nice seeing the deer and rabbits also pass through the property. The only "odd" thing was... More

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 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
