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

We stayed in a Quarryman Suite, which was very spacious overlooking the harbor. Room has a small balcony. Bathroom was large with two sink, oversized tub, and larger shower. Bed... 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. Our room on the 3rd floor of the Quarryman Hall was absolutely superb, possibly the best in the house, with suite-like floor space, a huge bathroom, and a covered balcony with a great view over the resort and...

While this is definitely a summer resort, if you're looking for a beautiful, quiet getaway this is the place. My wife and I celebrated Valentine's Day in the McMillan Suites at the resort.
