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.

After check in with Luke, whom was very helpful and nice, we were put in a beautiful upstairs room overlooking the ocean. The room was quaint and they had breakfast waiting for us for the next day. The only thing I would say is if your off season, make sure you don't come on a Sunday evening, because all the... More

This quite little inn offers an amazing view at an amazing rate. The owners great you personally and are very pleasant. They also have a fine dining Resturant that is fresh caught, or even raised right on property. When here ask about the history of the facility. We will be back!

Inn at Ship bay is not only a nice casual little hotel next to the sea, but also a very good restaurant with excellet seafood, good winelist and friendly service. After traveling on the West Coast for a week, this was our best experience, far better than other places we visited from San Fransisco to Napa Valley.
