When the weather in the Puget Sound looked perfect for a long bike ride, we decided to book a night at this lovely Inn at the south end of Lopez Island. Fortunately, Mackaye Inn had one room left. So we hopped aboard the San Juan ferry from Anacortes with just the bikes and some food. If you don't take a... More

Thank you, Flora, for taking time out of your busy schedule to review our inn. You have done a great job in describing how one can have a full and special experience in just "one" day. It was a pleasure to have you and Paul visit us. More

Robin and Mike are an amazing team who make you feel at home as soon as you walk in the door. From the moment you pull into the driveway, it is like stepping back in time where meetings and deadlines dissapear. The rooms are big, clean, comfortable and relaxing. Robin is an amazing cook and you will find yourself quessing... More

We just spent 3 nights at this lovely inn. We were coming from fairly grueling schedules and in need of a break. This place is hands down excellent. It's the kind of place that reminds of you how you'd like to live - all the time. The inn is beautiful, comfortable and serene. Mike and Robin are the people you... More

MacKaye Harbor Inn is one of the best B&B experiences we've had in 35 years of traveling. Lopez Island is absolutely beautiful and the setting for the Inn is truly exceptional. Mike and Robin are wonderful people as well as gracious hosts. They are extremely knowledgable about the island and able to advise us on everything from panoramic hikes to... More

Iceberg Point Trails and other nearby shoreline trails, plus the availability of organic food make it hard for us to go anywhere else for our salt water fix. My wife works at Sun Mouintain Lodge above the Methow Valley, one of the world's top rated hotels, and she's spent her entire career in the lodging business - starting in Saas-Fee,... More

What a great introduction to Lopez Island life. My husband and I stayed at MacKaye Harbor Inn one Sunday night in late April in order to attend a Tracy Grammer concert at the community center. Arriving in the afternoon, we had a chance to chat with Robin and to walk along the shoreline directly in front of the inn, enjoying... More

A friend and I traveled to Lopez Island to hike and bird watch. We stayed at MacKaye Harbor Inn one evening and wished we could have stayed longer. Each room was charmingly decorated, with marvelous views from each window. The large front porch was so inviting. Hosts Robin and Mike were friendly and welcoming. Robin served a delightful breakfast. I... More

We planned a stay here based upon reviews of prior guests. Every now and then you meet a couple like Robin and Mike(the couple in charge ). The hospitality was instant. Mike met us with a smile and gave us the tour & keys to our lovely room with a view of the Bay. We had a private deck to... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this lovingly cared-for B & B on quiet, rural Lopez Island. The views and chairs on the beach and lawn make one feel very much at home. Near beautiful Agate Cove and Iceberg Point, this inn includes warm hosts and a delicious, home-cooked breakfast. Every room is spotless and comfortable. Some have harbor views.... More

My husband and I had stayed at nice B & Bs on San Juan Island, and also Orcas Island---this was our first visit to Lopez. We stayed in the Blue Room on the second floor with awesome views of the water and boats. Even though the bathroom was small, it posed no problem for us. Spotlessly clean room/bathroom, comfortable bed,... More
