We've just returned from an absolutely magical long weekend on Lopez Island, where we had the pleasure of staying three nights at Mackaye Harbor Inn. The island is quaint and peaceful. The rumors about friendly locals waving and smiling wherever you go are delightfully true. And if you enjoy wildlife, leisurely water sports and spectacular views, this is the place... More

I wish I had photos available from this magical place-but perhaps it would just be best if you went there! I have stayed at the Inn and have recommended it to everyone I know. MacKaye Harbor Inn is located on the south end of the best island in the San Juan chain-Lopez Island. Lopez is an amazing place and you... More

Just wanted to say that EVERYONE should have a weekend at Mackaye Harbor Inn! (Could make a start towards world peace.) Robin & Mike make an art of running a B&B, - the hospitality is superb, the rooms are lovely ... and they'll set the coffee pot to start when the earliest riser needs it! :-) The breakfasts were wonderful...

What a wonderful place for a weekend away. It was very quiet and peaceful. The people are friendly and very accomodating. Can't wait to go back.

My family and I spend the most fabulous 4th of July weekend ever at the Mackaye Harbor Inn. What a wonderful place to get away from it all! It is the ideal place to watch fabulous sunsets, Deer at your door steps, Bold Eagles majestically flying, but most of all, the tranquillity surrounding this place cannot be express, it must...

Last year, on my first trip to the Mackaye Harbor Inn, I sailed my Beachcomber-Alpha dory up to their beach, arriving too late to get into town for dinner. No matter, Mike met me on the beach with a two-hands turkey sandwich and a warm welcome. This year my wife went with me, again in the dory, and again Mike... More

I hardly know where to begin. This lovely Bed & Breakfast looks out onto a beautiful serene bay where you can take a quite walk on the beach, grab a chair and relax to watch the seals and otters play or enjoy kayaking. I have never found a place that is so peaceful. Lopez Island offers many great hikes and... More

Spectacular location and wonderful hospitality. Beach access for walking and solitude. Close to hikes and public beaches. Quaint rooms with an amazing breakfast every morning. Highly recommended! The best on the San Juan Islands.

This is a terrific get-away...quiet, serene and beautiful. The sea otters watching you as you kayak by the shore are a bonus. Your hosts, Robin and Mike, are delightful people, knowledgable about the island and its attractions, great cooks and immaculate housekeepers. We will be back...as a matter of fact we have been back!

The Mackaye Harbor inn sits on a peaceful inlet of Lopez Island away from the bustle of stampeding feet and growling motorcycles. At any given moment you may look out the window or off the sprawling front porch to see otters and seals and exotic seabirds flourishing in the environs near the beachfront. The innkeepers Mike and Robin greet you... More
