We had a family of 21 and rented 5 houses. It was a perfect family vacation. Our houses were close enough so that we could jump from to the other. One of the houses was big so we could congregate there for meals. There was so much going on the week of the 4th of July and it was bustling.... More

This is a place for the boat people. Lots of activities on the water and lots of people docking here. Good food. A little spread out so a fair amount of walking to the pool or restaurant, etc. The "Colors" at night is reall special.

My son and just returned from another trip to Roche Harbor and again the visit was fantastic. We spent 4 nights in the front cabins via the Living Social deal so it was an even better bargain. We did have a few problems with the cabin we were in but they were quickly corrected. I cant say enough about Deb... More

We took advantage of a Living Social deal on the Roche Harbor Resort condos for a 2 day get-away. You can't beat the location. And, for the extreme bargain price of our deal, I can put up with a tired little condo that's badly in need of an update. I don't suggest booking the condos if you have to pay... More

Stayed in the Macmillin Suites for 2 nights for our 30th anniversary. Loved it there, we really enjoyed it! Stayed on the top floor with a stunning view of the harbor! Quite possibly the most comfortable bed we've slept in and loved the claw foot tub. So cozy to sit in front of the fireplace with the french doors open... More

@gigatay We're glad to hear your special occasion was one for the memories! We've put some updates on the bedding recently, and the spa-inspired microfiber sheets are truly amazing. And we're okay with your husband being a Man United fan - now. If it was the Michael Owen era with Liverpool things may have been different. ;) Hope to host... More

I shared a 2 bedroom condo with a friend this April. It was off season so was amazingly peaceful. Our balcony overlooked the marina. It was so nice to sit outside, listen to the rain, watch the birds and see the amazing boats in the harbor. The lime kiln cafe had excellent breakfasts! Great place to stay!

We stayed two nights in a condo at the Roche Harbor resort in April. Since it was off season the resort was quiet and peaceful. After talking to several residents and other visitors about the crowds during the summer, we were glad that we visited off season.
