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

Beautiful, quiet, immaculate, friendly accommodating hosts. Views of the pond on the property made me think of Walden, or a Monet painting. Linens were exceptionally comfortable. Easy parking in the shade. Close to Rosario Resort and Mt. Constitution. Loved the DUAL pedestal sinks with table in between. Would go back.

My wife, brother and sister-in-law stayed at this beautiful bed and breakfast during a recent stay on Orcas Island. This bed and breakfast is located on a lily pad filled pond with a great deal of bird activity. The bed and breakfast is very tastefully furnished and is spotlessly clean. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The four or... More

A beautiful place and the hosts are very nice as long as you follow the rules to the letter. The food was great and loved visiting with the other guests and seeing where they are from. I feel the hosts are getting burnt out as I know they are trying to sell the place. Loved Orcas Island but doubt will... More

Dear Readers, as innkeepers we know that an unfavorable (as well as a favorable) Trip Advisor review is very powerful. That being said, we can’t shirk our duties as innkeepers simply because a guest might not like what we have to say with respect to our house policies. We feel a responsibility to all of our guests to provide a... More

Sue and Carl share their love of beautiful Orcas Island the best way they know how...in making sure every detail is perfect for their guests. Otter's Pond is teeming with migratory and resident birds, bald eagles, island rabbits, occasional raccoons and of course, otters, all visible right off the back deck. A deep, private hot tub offers peaceful respite...open the... More

We can't say enough wonderful things about our stay at Otters Pond Bed and Breakfast on Orcas Island. Otters Pond is a beautifully appointed, beautifully situated, beautifully kept B&B on magical Orcas Island. Our room (Hummingbird Room) was lovely and the bed and linens were pure heaven - we slept the best we have in years. Our second-floor room had... More
