We attended a wedding at the resort and I absolutely loved everything about the resort and can't wait to return with my whole family. We stayed in the Quarryman Hall, which is the newer property across the path from Hotel de Haro, very centrally located. Our room was nice and clean and we were pleased to find we had a... More

We stayed at the Roche Harbor Resort for a few days on a longer Northwest trip to relax after a challenging year. We should have stayed longer, and will next time.

We stayed in the Lighthouse Landing House with two other couples. Be ready for stairs! We loved that it had A/C, as our weather was hot!! The kitchen is very well appointed with top rated appliances. The beds were comfortable and quality was throughout. Having a garage was wonderful, as it gave us a great place to store our bikes.... More

Beautiful location, excellent property. We stayed in the Presidential suite of that Hotel de Haro property. Very old building with uneven floors. It has character. We stayed in a Suite because it had a private bathroom. Amazing restaurants and they have a flag lowering ceremony every night. I would have been taken back to the 1950's if there was not... More

Our stay here was the highlight of our Northwestern trip this year. The Island is magnificent and has something for everyone. The purpose of our trip was to see Orcas in the beautiful waters surrounding the islands and we did! The resort transports you to another century when life was a bit gentler. We rented a historic cottage and had... More

Views, fireplace, extremely comfortable beds, with quality linens, bath salts for the tub, a couple of fine restaurants and great bar on site. What more could you ask for? Oh yes, attentive staff - they have it. This was my third time staying at Roche, and have really enjoyed every visit. Try it, you'll like it!

Our rainy journey here on a wet Sunday was more than compensated for bya friendly and helpful welcome from the check-in staff.
