The Inn at Ship Bay has adequate rooms, large and comfortable. We were in a ground floor room, so had to walk outside (!) to see the inlet, but there were eagles and deer passing by occasionally. The best reason to stay here is to eat here. The restaurant is exceptional, particularly given the setting. Well worth the visit.

Stay in an upstairs room ,the appointments are simple but so very comfortable. A small fridge is provided as well as a comfortable sitting area. The balcony is an added plus. Wifi service is offered and the views are spectacular. Our first evening there we saw and heard eagles roosting in a large tree just outside our room overlooking the... More

The rooms have a great view of the bay and lovely property. Breakfast offered home made muffins one day and scones the next; both were delicious! Make sure you have dinner there; it was so good the first night that we opted to eat there the next night as well! Using local ingredients (some grown on the property), we ate... More

Quaint inn situated in a fruit orchard next to the bay. Great bay views, clean comfortable beds and balconies with water views. Delicious continental breakfasts included. Informative suggestions from Luke and Maryann

I looked at several places to stay when we were planning a 3 day visit to Orcas Island. I am so glad I chose the Inn at Ship Bay. Everything from the check in and the conversation with Luke about the Island and suggestions on where to eat in town, the delicious scones at the continental breakfast to the view... More

Often when you visit resort areas you find the same two types of fare. 1: everything is fried or 2: everything comes with rice pilaf and steamed vegetables. We found The Inn at Ship Bay and the restaurant such a pleasant change from that norm. As a family of chefs we often expect the worst so we aren't disappointed. The... More

We had dinner at this restaurant and it was one of the best we have every had. The chef is extraordinary; his training and refined taste show in the subtlety and perfection of the food. The ingredients are first quality and local. Sauces, if any, are on the plate instead of drowning the main ingredient. I had delicate, melt in... More

We were invited to Orcas Island to participate in a friend's wedding on Orcas Island. The groom recommended a lovely comfortable in on Ship Bay just a few minutes from Eastsound on Orcas. The restaurant is incredible--most of the produce comes from the on-site garden! The homemade granola at breakfast was the best we've ever tasted! Our room faced the... More

Wonderful location -- we loved sitting out in the back overlooking the Bay, watching the eagles, etc. Invaluable help from Luke about where to go on the Island for hiking and recreation, and he made the great suggestion that we fit in dinner there. Wow - the restaurant was incredible. We would certainly stay there again in a heartbeat.

Lovely setting with warm staff...especially Luke. Incredible views including a couple bald eagles. Dinner was amazing...all with fresh local ingredients and great presentation. I can still taste the seared scallops! Strongly recommend this place.
