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

If you are going to Orcas Island, do not miss a few nights here. I would recommend the Orchard House. Beautiful views of valley and sheep from the deck. The room is spacious, wonderfully decorated, very comfortable. Bill and Susan are very friendly and hospitable. Great breakfast. Romantic and relaxing.

We enjoyed our stay ! Bill, Susan and recently Tracy have a keen eye for detail. They were available to make suggestions about where to find great music, about where to eat, about the sheep, about anything you might want to know...all with a nonchalance that sets you at ease. The farmhouse was restored beautifully in 1985 and has been... More

Bill and Susan (Owners) are the most warm and welcoming people you'll ever meet. They make a delicious breakfast in the morning (and accommodate dietary restrictions) and have endless amazing and entertaining stories to share. The property is stunning. Beautiful rolling hills with roaming sheep you can pet (including "Chompers"), chickens, and a tranquil pond. They include boots for you... More

We called the Turtleback Farm Inn in a pinch when we had to change our travel plans for the evening. My partner and I took the last room available, "The Nook." This room really was a nook and was barely big enough to fit the double size bed and faced the main entrance to the farm house, so there was... More
