I love going to stay at Deer Harbor Inn because it's beautiful and relaxing. Rooms are great, beds are so amazing. If you like watching deer and rabbits, there are lots of them around. The owners are top notch, staff follows their lead. So nice. Wish I could go more often!

We travelled with another couple and stayed in the cottage which felt more like a vacation home. Two king bedrooms, private bath in each. Roomy living area, kitchen and dining. Bedrooms were spacious and the beds comfy. We really enjoyed the hot tub on our deck after hiking one day. Dinner on the deck at the restaurant nearby was delicious,... More

The hotel is quaint and comfortable and pretty. I go to Orcas every year and would have stayed there again if not for two unpleasant emails from the manager regarding my children. It was subtly suggested that I check out early since they were too loud (which they were!). There was no communication to me that children weren't allowed at... More

We stayed two nights in July at Deer Harbor Lodge, and had an upstairs room with a nice view, no 7. The windows opened and had screens to allow fresh cool air. The bed was comfy and a mini fridge included oranje juice, two oranges and two yogurts. There was a coffeemaker and two cookies for breakfast. Deer Harbor Inn... More

First reaction... you never find anyone from the property running the place.. everything is "self serve".. which works.. but just a bit strange. The most positive thing is the solitude... many deer running around... very quiet. The Inn Restaurant is 50 yards away and is EXCELLENT! Room size and bed sleeping quality was good. They do not service your room... More

We spent two nights at Deer Harbor Inn and I was pleasantly surprised with the experience. We actually had no interaction with anyone (except the restaurant staff), but they were excellent at communicating with us prior to our arrival and they had a packet for us waiting in the office and goodies in the fridge/basket when we got to the...

Deer Harbor Inn started out at the turn of the century as a summer vacation retreat for Seattle school teachers and not much as changed over the past century. Deer Harbor is not close by the main town on the Island, Eastsound, so be prepared for solitude. We stayed at the large log bunk building and our room was comfortable... More

Location is quiet and peaceful, as is the entire island. Windows open so we could enjoy the cool night air and could hear the birds. Housekeeping did not replace required items such as coffee cups, towels, even the promised breakfast items (packaged breakfast bar, fruit, juice, & yogurt). However most supplies were available in the common areas so I could... More

We spent two nights in the inn at Deer Harbor. Our room was cozy and rustic. We liked the first morning's breakfast waiting for us in the funky pink apartment-sized refrigerator and the picnic basket in our room. There were home baked cookies on our table the first day, too. We shared a common area on our floor with the... More

We enjoyed our stay in the lodge at Deer Harbor Inn. It was rustic, but clean and comfortable. We slept well on the bed. They provided free Wi-Fi; there's also a TV and mini fridge in the room. A continental breakfast was provided that included fruit, yogurt, orange juice and 2 large breakfast "cookies." (I'm sorry, we did not care... More
