This small inn with 11 suite-style rooms, is located just past town on the shore at the "top of the horseshoe" that is Orcas Island. We enjoyed the views of Puget Sound from our terrace and were able to make ourselves comfortable in a beautifully decorated and maintained room. The high, king-size bed with down comforter was terrific after a... More

We stayed at the Inn at Ships Bay on our honeymoon last year. I can't tell you how much we loved it! We had room 211. We are anxious to go back as soon as we get a chance. The room was gorgeous. The service was great. The breakfast was so good, and the restaurant is well worth the cost.... More

Service and concern for your comfort and enjoyment are the priority at the Inn at Ship Bay. Our recent 5-night stay was among the best hotel experiences we've ever had. We could not get enough of the view from our room's porch, including watching the bald headed eagle pair feasting on fish remains and marveling over the moon rising above... More

The room, food, atmosphere and service were all exceptional! We were on our first trip to Orcas Island as well as the Northwest. We read some really good reviews of the Inn and Ship Bay before deciding to book there and it lived up to all of our expectations. When we arrived, we were welcomed by the inn keeper who... More

My husband and I had never been to the San Juan Islands before this trip, and we weren't quite sure what to expect. We were there for an anniversary trip and splurged for a night at The Langley Inn on Whidbey Island and then stayed a few nights at the Inn at Ship Bay on Orcas. It was a fantastic... More

We chose to have our wedding at the Inn and came away with an absolutely wonderful weekend. The Inn was appealing because we could book out all 11 rooms including a bridal suite--the rooms were immaculate, had cast iron stoves, and excellent pillow top beds. Mariana and the rest of the staff were exceptionally accomodating, helping us design all phases... More

My husband and I have been coming back here for the past 4 years in a row for Valentine's Day. In Feb, the Inn is pretty quiet and no kids around and easy to get a table for dinner. The best two things about this place is the excellent restaurant (high-end northwest fare) and the comfortable down beds. The rooms... More

Get ready to fall in love...with Orcas Island and Inn at Ship Bay. My boyfriend and I stayed there for two nights. Because we loved it so much, we booked a third night. The hotel is small, only 11 rooms, but they are one of the few hotels on the island that have King size beds, which was a plus... More

This Inn has a total of 11 beautiful rooms overlooking the water, is filled with beautiful gardens and a lilly pond. It was the most perfect place to have my wedding, or so I thought. We had to rent the Inn for the whole weekend which was fine. From the minute we got there I felt like a burden and... More

We had a wonderful 3 night stay on Orcas Island at the Inn at Ship Bay. We had a lovely room, on the pond side overlooking the bay. The beds are so comfortable! The rooms are very plush and well-appointed. The restaurant is excellent - we preferred it over Christina's. The Inn is a great location - close to East... More
