This is a lovely location to relax and enjoy peace and quiet. It is off the beaten trail and not as touristy as say Rosario. The food is exceptional and the staff is very polite. If you are looking for some R&R this is your place!

We just spent a night at the Inn at Ship Bay on Orcas Island. We would definitely stay here again! Our room was on the ground floor (#105), with a very comfortable King Bed. We had a small deck/porch right off the room and nice views of the water (the Inn sits on a bluff about 100 yards from the... More

We may not get out to enjoy a fine dining experience as often as we might like, but when we do we'd like it to be something special. Geddes and his talented team in the kitchen at Inn at Ship Bay always give you their 100% best effort and they consistently deliver an extraordinary fine dining experience highlighting the local...

Stayed here as I was in town to photograph a wedding. Beautiful location, nice and quiet. Did not get a chance to try the restaurant sadly. Heard it's amazing! Very friendly staff and REALLY appreciated the complimentary drinks in room!!! It's little things like that make it like home.

On a chance comment we made reservations for dinner. #1 restaurant on Orcas - says tripAdvisor for a reason. Fantastic freshly prepared food. Service, ambiance, outdoor seating, views. So glad we visited for this island get away and our last evening meal spent here.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would visit again. I had a 2nd floor room which let me keep my porch door open overnight during the beautiful October weather. My brother was one room closer to the restaurant and he commented a little on the noise, which ended by ~10pm. The wifi was enough to check email and update information,... More

This small, cozy hotel surprised us -- excellent rooms, fabulous view of East Sound bay, great service, and excellent food. Great access to the town of East Sound and lot's of nearby hiking, kayaking, etc. Be sure to hang out in the back yard when the staff tosses our the Salmon fish bodies from the kitchen. The eagles wait and... More

I want to start by saying the restaurant is fabulous but the Inn was disappointing. The room is dated and tired with cheap fixtures, linoleum bathroom floor, prefab plastic shower, indoor/outdoor carpet in bedroom and not real clean! The view would have been great but the apple tree had not been trimmed so totally blocked it! It seemed the owners... More

We have been visiting Orcas for over 20 years and this is probably the best place that we have found to stay. The location, view and setting is spectacular, the rooms are large and comfortable, and the food in the resto is great. 9 am breakfast is a bit late and simple (continental) but allows for an early long walk....

This in has comfortable rooms with a welcoming staff. We particularly enjoyed the grounds which consist of an orchard and beautiful views of the bay. The restaurant was outstanding from appetizer to dessert. We would gladly return.
