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

My husband and I had a wonderful 4 night stay at the Deer Harbor Inn. We took advantage of the Travel Zoo offer and saved a ton of money by doing so. We stayed in Lodge room #2 which is on the ground floor of the lodge. I think the management has really taken guest comments into consideration because there... More

We stayed here 2 nights upstairs in room 7 the lodge. Our room had the best view - a lovely view of the water. Overall the room was comfortable and clean, and was pretty much what we expected from the reviews. The lodge itself had a couple of common areas and two really nice balconies. But for the price one... More

We stayed (three of us) two nights in June, 2014 at the Deer Harbor Inn and found almost NO contact with management nor staff, even when we called the numbers listed at the office we got no return calls nor much action The on-sight restaurant while quite pricey wasn't even open on Wednesday night during tourist (?) season. For the... More

Stayed at the lodge, was a very relaxing comfortable stay, really enjoyed sitting on the upper deck which gives you a view of the bay and the mountains in the distance. The provided breakfast items granola, English muffin, fruit etc was an added bonus. Would return.

Spent two nights here and can't really fault it. We had a cottage which pretty much had everything you could need in it. It was clean and in very good condition. Enjoyed the hot tub although couldn't figure out how to get the massaging jets to work. We ate at the restaurant one night and the food was very good.... More
