We absolutely loved our stay at the secluded cabin on Spring Bay. Fresh flowers and homemade cookies welcomed us to this cozy cabin with every amenity needed for a joyous and relaxing visit. The hiking trails are wonderful and we loved our kayak tour, which included seal harbor, river otter, kingfisher, and eagle sightings. This may be my favorite place... More

We stumbled upon the cabin's web site (www.springbayinn.com) by chance. The inn is no longer open but the owners rent out a cozy cabin near the inn. We were amazed at the peacefulness and beauty of this place. We enjoyed rekindling our love for one another here. There is a hot tub that looks out onto the private beach which... More

Found out they have their own trails . we enjoyed hiking on 5 miles of maintained picturesque forested trails. Our friends had the cabin owner marry them here too. Made for a cool, small wedding. Cabin is clean and came with everything we could have needed. Also reserved time with owner for a private kayak tour. Magical time here!

A peace of heaven at a cabin set in a amazing spot. The owners live near by and are great resources for island information. They also give guided kayak tours that are fun and something they provide all the equipment for. They also do weddings and happy to say they officiated my wedding on their beach!

I just returned from a weekend on Orcas Island and I stayed here for two nights. The cabin was clean, warm, and well-stocked. Sandy took us kayaking on short notice and we had a great time. She knew all about the weather, the currents, the parks, and the local life. Both Carl and Sandy were very warm and welcoming but... More

We renewed our vows and stayed two nights here for our fifth anniversary. Our stay couldn't have been any better! We had a snafu with our pet-sitting arrangements and Sandy was so helpful in pointing us to a solution on the island (Eastsound Kennels, which is also great). We had a special little ceremony on the water's edge (Sandy officiated,... More

I hate to even write a review, because I'd like to keep this hidden gem all to myself. My husband and I spent our wedding night here along with two additional nights. The cabin was perfect. It was 'off the beaten path' so we could truely get away. Sandy officiated our wedding and Carl played guitar. They will always be... More

We did not stay at the Inn but wanted to review the Kayaking that was offered at Spring Bay. We weren't sure if we were going to have time or the right weather so we were only able to call the day we hoped to kayak and Spring Bay was completely accomodating and allowed us to be there within an...

Our stay with Carl and Sandy was so educational and relaxing. We were greeted warmly by Carl showing his sincere care for our stay and inviting us to have warm refreshments he had finished baking. Our night was heavenly overlooking the bay water and watching the deer grazing in the yard. A breakfast awaited us on the landing with fresh... More

We agree with the rave reviews below. Sandy and Carl are superb hosts, they took care of every detail, they made kayaking fun for these two novices, and the food was as good as advertised. They were very helpful with candid advice on restaurants, hiking opportunities in the State Parks, and other items. Would go back again anytime!
