We first visited the Kangaroo House in August of 2004 and had an amazing experience. It is a special romantic destination for us, so we returned in June 2007 to be married in the garden. Charles, the Innkeeper, was "flying solo" that weekend, as his wife was out of town. Charles went above and beyond our expectations to ensure we... More

Our family of 4 (girls 6 and 8) stayed over the Labor Day weekend and really enjoyed the quiet time at the Kangaroo House. Hosts Charles and Jill were gracious and their care and attention to breakfast is really special. The 100 year old house is recently renovated, the rooms comfortable and bath and shower excellent. What really impressed me... More

The glowing reviews we read on TripAdvisor were true! Jill was away for the weekend but Charles took good care of us. The beautiful and well-kept craftsman was a comfortable home for my husband and me and our two children, aged 4 and 16 months. We could've imagined it being even better had it been an adults-only weekend because we... More

Spent 2 nights over Memorial Day weekend at the Kangaroo House in the Stellar Room. Upon arrival we were greeted by Charles who gave us a tour of the common areas and showed us our room. The house and room were clean and well maintained. We found the house to be very comfortable for relaxing and reading. Charles and Jill... More

We spent two lovely nights at the Kangaroo House over Memorial Day weekend. The house is 100 years old and in excellent condition. The furnishings are all correct for the period, the house is clean and the decor is well done. Although the house is old, the bathrooms are very updated with timed heaters and fans, even a night light... More

To celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary, my wife and I spent two wonderful days on Orcas Island at the Kangaroo House. What a wonderful stay it was. From the time of our arrival all our needs were met by innkeepers Charles and Jill. We stayed in the Goldfinch Room which we found to be very spacious and comfortable.The large King... More

This summer we had the pleasure of staying at the Kangaroo House on Orcas Island, in the beautiful San Juan Islands just north of Seattle. We are B&B junkies, preferring the warm hospitality of a small and intimate setting versus the sameness of hotel chains. Jill & Charles are marvelous hosts, sparing no effort to make us feel welcome and... More

My husband and I went to Orcas Island on short notice. Although I grew up in the NW, I had never been to the islands. We hopped a ferry and landed on one of the most beautiful places in the world. Homey small town, rolling hills, cool beaches and trails, and an unbelievable view from the top of Mt. Constitution.... More

My wife and I headed to Orcas to celebrate our 28th Wedding Anniversary. The Kangaroo House was a wonderful place to decompress from our hurried daily life, to relax and just enjoy time away together. The inn is nestled into a heavily wooded lot and interiors are warm and homey, with craftsman style furnishings and other antiques. The delicious breakfasts... More

My husband and I visit Washington pretty often, and wanted to finally go to Orcas Island after hearing about the whale watching in the San Juans, the great restaurants on Orcas and of course the fabulous hiking at Moran State Park. My sister had been to Orcas last year and loved it, so we headed out for a three day... More
