This trip was intended to be a mother and daughter trip, however my mother was unable to make her flights at the last minute, so I went alone. The innkeepers were kind and easygoing and the breakfasts were fantastic. The area is very serene and quiet, the beds are extremely comfortable and the hot tub was perfect after each day... More

Carl and Sue are well travelled and gracious hosts. Room was well appointed and viewed Otters Pond. Extensive library. He recorded football games for my later viewing. Breakfast clearly is of gourmet caliber. Great community. We needed a break after Christmas and this was perfect place. On way to and from Orcas Island visit the Calico Cupboard in Anacortes.

It was our first experience to a B & B for all of us. We were curious about the differences of staying at a Hotel verses a B & B. The Otter's Pond Bed & Breakfast where we chose to stay at was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! The surroundings of this B & B were just as moving. Our host and hostess... More

I see there are a few reviews that talk about stuffiness at Otters pond. I'd submit just the opposite! This place was absolutely wonderful. I had just found out I had some dietary needs and they were more than helpful, they actually made me feel like I could still eat good stuff! They made specific items for me at breakfast,... More

Sue greeted us upon our arrival and showed us all around the B&B following the quick check in process. Our room was wonderful. All the comforts of home. Roomy, a private bath and sheets so comfortable we bought a set to take home. Sue made dinner reservations for us for each night we were at Otters Pond and all were... More

Got to Orcas and found the Otter Pond B&B easily thanks to the instructions in the confirmation print out. Was greet by Carl and his wife Sue when we arrived and Carl gave us the run down of the place so we would know where things were and such during the quick check in process. While we did not use...

Breakfasts were 5 courses and the right amount. Excellent food. The surrounding area was peaceful and quaint. The rooms spacious and lively. Sue and Karl made dinner reservations for us. Plus they are delightful people to be around. This is our second stay with them. Love it!!!

This B&B is situated in the woods but is anything but rustic. The accommodations are up to date and very comfortable. The bed, bedding, and pillows are the most comfortable I have ever slept on. The view from every window is exceptional but the pastoral scene from the back deck is sublime. It looks out over a pond full of... More

We had an incredible time staying at Otter's Pond. Carl & Sue were very accommodating and hospitable. The breakfast was lovingly prepared with each course building on the next - starting with a homemade, palate-cleansing fresh fruit sorbet. Delicious! The other people staying there were so nice it made the breakfast feel like we were visiting with old friends. The... More

My husband and I have been staying at Otters Pond for well over 10 years now. We absolutely love Carl and Sue and the tranquil place they've created for people to stay on the magical Orcas Island. We've stayed in almost all of the rooms, but The Swan is our very favorite. This trip, we brought along two other couples.... More
