My fiance and I are both CWU students, on a last minute whim we went on a weekend trip to Kangaroo House, and we were so glad we did! The breakfast was amazing! The best homemade pancakes I have ever had, and the hosts made us feel at home and so welcome.They have a hottub out in the garden, and... More

Always relaxing, homey, friendly, welcoming. Always hard to leave. Excellent food and coffee. Peter and Helen radiate their charm. There's no place like this anywhere. Always love when I get to stay there.

My kayaker friends and I have stayed at this wonderful place twice. The breakfasts are phenomenal (so plan to exercise during the day), and the rooms are delightful. We kayak hard all day, then soak in the hot tub. Later, we enjoy some wine while relaxing in Peter and Helen's beautiful garden. It couldn't be better. It's a short walk... More

The rooms are delightful (even more so than before with the beautiful remodel last year), the food is fantastic, the garden hot tub is very pleasant as is the lovely garden. We love watching the birds while lounging & reading on... More

The Kangaroo House Bed and Breakfast on Orcas Island, Washington, has always been a total joyful and satisfying experience. The physical comforts are great, but more important is the welcome and superb company of the owners. They are not only gracious, but knowledgeable and interesting. They take the time to be helpful and entertaining. I rate our visits at the... More

I can't rave enough about my two stays at the Kangaroo House. The rooms are extremely comfortable and inviting. Two of the bedrooms also have an internal adjacent sitting room that almost demands that you settle in there to read or schoomze. I used and enjoyed the hot tub daily. Each morning, I would look forward to the next fabulous... More

Peter and Helen (Owner/Innkeepers) are perhaps two of the loveliest people (and terrific cooks-featured on PBS) on the island. They have created an ambience of hospitality and warmth that many other Inns on the island have failed to achieve. The Inn itself is a wonderful craftsman-style house which they have recently renovated so that all bedrooms have private baths. The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This historic Bungalow was built as a vacation hotel by a stone mason in 1907. In a later incarnation, colorful resident and steamship captain, "Cap" Ferris brought a baby orphaned kangaroo to live with him and his family. The locals dubbed the sprawling Craftsman building the "Kangaroo House" Since then it became a B&B and is the longest continually operating bed & breakfast in the San Juan Islands.We have 5 Rooms/Suites, all with Private Bathrooms, King or Queen beds and some with additional beds and DVD players/moviesFree WiFi, Garden Hot Tub, and an exceptional, filling, breakfast made from scratch inlcluding wholesome, local fruits, meats, vegetables and herbs from Orcas Island - some that we even grow ourselves. ... more   less
