This was our first visit to Orcas Island and we chose Deer Harbor because it is near our son's summer camp which we came to see. We feel like we got lucky choosing The Place at Cayou Cove. The house, cottages and grounds are stunningly beautiful. Right on the water with flowers everywhere and a big wrap around porch to... More

We stayed in the main house on the top floor. Our bedroom overlooked the harbor with a balcony to sit outside and enjoy. We had an AMAZING dressing room complete with closet, makeup vanity and huge stool in the center. The bathroom was a delight with heated tile floor and shower (as well as toilet seat). It had a king... More

The Place at Cayou Cove is located in a beautiful spot on Deer Harbor on Orcas Island. It is a bit remote so we cooked in our cottage most nights which was great. We loved our cottage for the complete privacy, especially the hot tub. The grounds surrounding the cottages and the main house are beautiful.

We enjoyed the cozy, peaceful cottage at the cove. Each day we explored the island but came back to the cottage to spend time walking on the beach, enjoying the view, and cooking our dinners. We had planned on going out for dinner at least one evening but decided to stay in. Everything was there that we needed including the... More

I was worried that the online presentation of this place could not possibly be real BUT it was! Everything was perfect and exceeded our expectations. It is very private, clean and most importantly cozy. Our bed and the sheets were so comfy we did not want to wake up in the morning...luckily the view out of our windows changed our... More

We spent a weekend in February at the cottage and it was perfect! It's cozy, quiet and the hot tub on the cove was the BEST! We got to enjoy the fireplace and the beach was a fun walk. Valerie and Charles were really accommodating--they allowed us to check in late since we were coming from Seattle and were flexible... More

We spent Christmas at the Cove, our first visit, and were very impressed. Very gracious people and a cozy cottage on the water. My wife and myself can highly recommend Cayou Cove. I think the description mentions romantic or family oriented. You could certainly go either way.

Cayou Cove exceeded our expectations. Our beautifully appointed cottage was cozy and warm and our delicious breakfast brought to our cottage a delight to all senses. Attention to detail is Valerie's specialty from the mint sprig and flower on our fruit in the morning to her keen sense of her guest's needs. Yet, all done in the most non-intrusive way.... More

My husband and I have stayed here several times over the past decade. The Place at Cayou Cove is a special destination for us (it's a 12-hour drive from our home), not just because of the lovely accommodations and gorgeous setting, but also because of the delightful owners. Earlier this month, we celebrated my husband's birthday in the Carriage House,... More

The attention to detail is extraordinary, everything is perfectly placed, and the layout couldn't be better. The moment you walk in you can feel a sense of relaxation sweep over you. Valerie has built something truly special and we intend to visit at least once a year. There is no other place like it.
