What a great experience! Sue and Carl are very friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about everything on the islands. They helped us check in, explained the rules of the house and gave us tips on what restaurants to have dinner at (they have a menu book at the house which was incredibly helpful to get an idea of what you might...

Carl and Sue are the greatest hosts. Otters Pond is a fantastic bed and breakfast. The breakfast is fantastic. Birds and other animals are beautiful. Location is close to Moran State Park. My wife and I highly recommend to adults looking for quiet and peace. Robes are the best and spa is great.

My wife and I stayed here for a romantic weekend over Memorial Day. It was delightful. The location is gorgeous - a beautifully landscaped garden beside a lily-covered pond, just on the edge of Moran State Park. Our room was the luxurious Swan. It has a full view over the pond, a great comfortable big that's big enough to get... More

We stayed at Otters Pond for two nights over Memorial Day weekend and we had a wonderful time. Sue and Carl are lovely people and go out of their way to make your stay perfect. When I first booked our reservation, Sue asked me if we had any food allergies or preferences - Otters Pond serves a 5-course breakfast every... More

We stayed there for two nights in a journey and we maybe had our best experience. The Bedroom was beautiful and the breakfast sumptuous. Moreover the keepers are very very kind and if you love birds, they will be proud to help you recognizing the ones that come eating seeds by the pond!

My husband and I were looking for a relaxing vacation and we stayed on Orcas Island from Wed-Sun. We are in our 20's so we're a little young for the typical B&B crowd, but we really enjoyed our stay. The hosts were very kind and the breakfast was always fantastic. Our room was very comfortable and clean and we were... More

We went for two nights with good friends to explore Orcas Island for the first time. Sue & Carl were SO hospitable from the very beginning... getting us reservations for dinner on arrival night after getting stuck waiting for a late ferry... Answering questions for us & advising of activities to enjoy the island. Sitting on the deck both morning... More

My husband and I were to spend time at the Otter's Pond for our anniversary, however unfortunately, we had to cancel our reservations due to a medical emergency. I called the owners to let them know with the intention of rescheduling to a different time that would work for both of us. Instead at the first utter of the word... More

otterbesue, Owner at Otters Pond Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review

When “guests” make a reservation at any lodging establishment they ask the business to reserve a specific room for them for a specified number of nights. In this case it was three nights. This is a contract between the guest and the business. The guest promises to pay for those three nights and the B&B or hotel promises not to... More

I traveled with my teen and had a good time at this bed and breakfast. It is a beautiful home set in the woods, and has a picturesque outdoor pond and a hot tub. It is literally hidden from view among nature, a true getaway! We had asked for a room recommendation and got the Bluebird room. It did have... More
