I hate to say it but we have stayed at many B & Bs and this one seems to have lost its appeal. Upon arriving, the owners meet us and went over the paperwork and told us a little about the area but something seemed off. When the owners were telling us about the area, it seemed as though they...

Lovely B&B rurally located on Orcas with great service and scrumptious breakfasts. The B&B is also a small farm that hosts chickens and sheep. Walking the grounds is calming and blackberries are yours for the picking. In the evening, fresh baked cookies or brownies and sherry await. Very comfortable bedding and clean bathrooms are what you want after day long... More

This B&B had just what we were looking for: a quiet location on a backroad, lovely view of an agricultural valley and comfortable, charming rooms. The elderly owners are deeply knowledgeable about the island and gave us excellent suggestions of the sights to see. The staff couldn't have been more helpful -- including tracking down advice about a problem with... More

Charming B&B "in the shadow of" Turtleback Mountain. A sweet couple manage this delightful restored farm house with class and comfort. A first class breakfast on the deck overlooking fields of grazing sheep preps you for a day of Orca whale exploring. Or choose from many beautifully managed hiking biking trails for amazing vistas of the San Juan islands and... More

our stay at turtleback farm inn was okay, but certainly nothing special. we were very satisfied with our room...the elm room. it was clean and comfortable and offered nice views of a sheep meadow. the free wifi was a surprising feature that we appreciated, and we did not mind having no televsion. we stayed two nights and scheduled the 8:50...

Turtleback Farm Inn is one of those places that is just so special, it cannot be duplicated. We originally reserved 3 nights but ended up staying a 4th night because we didn't want to leave. There is just something about Turtleback Farm Inn that makes you feel close to nature and so peaceful. The location on 80 acres of sweeping... More

I had no idea how perfect this location is. Great hiking on Turtleback Mountain steps away. A short drive to practically every spot on the island - especially easy access to the main town of Eastsound. But you will look forward to getting back to your room. Sweeping views of Crow Valley pasture and forest. We had a lovely deck... More

We came over from our home on San Juan Island for one night to go geocaching. I have stayed at very few B&Bs because I like my privacy but this place was amazing! The room was very private and I think all the rooms have their own bathrooms. The bathroom was also cool with a pull-chain toilet and a huge... More

We loved this Inn. Every detail was perfect and the Inn Keepers/Owners seem to still have real joy in sharing their little piece of heaven! We'd love to come back and even try off season! Homemade food was excellent.

The peaceful atmosphere, friendly attention, beautiful surroundings and the call of the rooster make this place simply wonderful. Susan's breakfasts and Bill's coffee start your day out right. The central location, though not on the water, is perfect for visiting all the places that are on the water. Those places on the water are lovely but crowded and noisy, and... More
