Located on the road up from the ferry it is fairly easy to find, the accommodation is of the highest standard, we had the Waters view cabin which was spacious and private. The accommodation has a large king bed, 2 sofas, TV propane fire. Wifi is available and service is very good. The kitchen is well appointed and also contains... More

We stayed in the cottage for four nights. While it was clean enough, the decor was odd and a bit outdated. The breakfasts were mediocre and have to be eaten with others staying. Hot tub was a little dirty as well and not particularly private. Overall we felt it was a bit over-priced for what you get.

I recently stayed there with my family for a couple of days. Henri and Nicole are wonderful, and so is their home. If you're looking for a party house, this is not the place for you. However, if you're looking for peace, quiet, relaxation, nature, beauty and really amazing food (Nicole and Henri owned fine dining establishments for decades), then... More

I booked three rooms for my family at Old Trout and was very, very pleased. The guest rooms aren't packed right next to each other, so you don't feel like you have to whisper in your own room or navigate tight hallways with strangers. Nicole and Henri's B&B is spacious and serene. The grounds around the pond are gorgeous and... More

I stayed a week at the Water's Edge Cottage in April. I was given the option of having my breakfast served in the cottage, but chose to eat in the dining room in the main house. Henri and Nicole are absolutely delightful hosts. The inn is tastefully decorated with a collection of books in the living room to peruse. The... More

I was a guest at your facility for several days. The personnel was amazing and courteous. The food was amazing and the grounds of the facility were fantastic. It's a great place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone!

Henri and Nicole make you feel like a part of the family. We are going back this fall to see the spectacular night skys and hopefully see some humpback whales. We always feel totally at home and relaxed when we stay at the Old Trout Inn. The gardens and the pond plus the feeling of total isolation is so relaxing.... More

We loved our lovely Parsian hosts who came here 12 years ago to be near a daughter. It's a lovely, quiet and supremely comfortable in, surrounded by an animal refuge, organic kitchen garden, and the sea smells of Orcas Island. We hope to book Thanksgiving there!

Highly Recommend: During our first trip to Orcas Island, my husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Henri & Nicole's B&B - we were delightfully surprised! The location, although not in Eastsound (10 min drive), is easy to find and is near to the ferry (making early morning departure easy). We stayed in the Greenhouse Suite which is... More
