Orcas Island in the San Juan Islands archipelago off Washington State is rural, quiet and beautiful, and The Inn on Orcas Island is one of the best places to stay! It is a small romantic inn run by Jeremy and John and they make sure your stay is enjoyable. In the morning John prepares a delicious breakfast and there will... More

Title of your review With 168 5-star reviews before this one, chances are slim that much can be added to the many compliments lavished already. So fellow traveler, no real need to read further, just go and be happy! But, should you still be reading, here are our personal observations. From the moment we arrived, we were struck by how...

John makes wonderful breakfasts and Jeremy is a great host. We stayed in the waterside cottage this time and it is a piece of paradise. Please stay when you... More

We've stayed in many B & B's since that first one on our honeymoon 32 years ago. This was probably the best one. Quiet, peaceful Orcas Island. Absolutely beautiful home with outstanding artwork, tastefully decorated. Our room was small (Wisteria room), but then we chose the least expensive. Breakfasts were excellent. But the best part was the outstanding hospitality exhibited... More

Jeremy & John are the AMAZING hosts of an AMAZING inn on an AMAZING island. While John works behind the scenes to provide the best breakfasts ever, Jeremy is busy "up front" giving advice on the best hikes, tours, kayaking, restaurants, shops, etc,etc,etc. We couldn't have asked for a better four days!

The Inn on Orcas Island is as wonderful as past reviewers state. We loved the waterside cottage, John's food, and Jeremy's hospitality. When we were trying to decide how to spend our one full day on Orcas, Jeremy suggested an amazing - and challenging! - hike to the top of Mount Constitution, even recommending where along the trail we should...

The whole experience could not have been better. Jeremy is is the ultimate innkeeper. He is everything you could ask for as a host. The building was built to be a bnb and it is wonderful. The rooms are spacious with great bathrooms and amenities, John's gourmet breakfasts were outstanding. We had the ultimate wonderful 3 frays. Can't wait to... More

We were lucky enough to stay at this beautiful B & B for a few nights and my words really fall short when describing how wonderful the experience was. From the architecture and museum quality art, super comfy bed, fantasticly soft sheets, wonderful room with balcony and spacious bathroom to the five star - 2 course breakfast lovingly prepared by...

Had a lovely 3 night stay at the Inn on Orcas. The décor is beautiful - both in the room and in the public areas. Great mattress! Friendly hosts, lovely view, quiet location, tasty breakfast. Fast internet service made it easy to book activities and dining. Got a 10% discount on our whale watching cruise when they found we were... More
