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...

Roche Harbor Resort sits at the northern end of San Juan Island in Washington State's San Juan Islands. It is a premier launching spot for cruising the Salish Sea and the Pacific Northwest. It has lovely accommodations, from the quaint cottages to the historic Hotel de Haro, and on to the lovely Quarryman Hall condominiums. Oh and don't forget the... More

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. The room was comfortable, clean and had a wonderful view of the Harbour from the balcony. It was nice to wake up to ocean air, walk down... More

I was married at Roche about 6 months ago. Superb. Important points: 1. Hotel staff were phenomenal. They offered to do things to accommodate us that I didn't even think to ask. I was recognized by the staff and given true, heart-felt well wishes. Taking care of our guest welcome bags was smooth and they front desk staff were more... More

While on a trip to Orcas Island my new fiancée and I decided to fly our plane to Roche Harbor to see what is was all about and look for a wedding location. We thought this might be a good location as most of out friends and family fly or would take a charter flight over to the island. After... More

Hello Miles T, We are so sorry for your unwelcome reception at the Roche Harbor Airstrip. The bill you received is from Roche Harbor Airport Inc., not Roche Harbor Resort. While the airstrip is adjacent to the Resort, it is a separate legal entity and not an integrated part of our Resort operations. Unlike the airports at Eastbound and Friday... More

Thank you, thank you! You take us back in time along with modern conveniences. My daughters and I had the best time in your cottages. Campfire every night along with flying kites in the meadows overlooking the harbor. Life at its best. So comfortable so peaceful. Look up and there are Bald eagles circling above.

Four nights at Roche Harbor for a work conference was a pretty nice place to be. A few highlights: my room (in Quarryman) was beautiful with a great view. I saw a room in McMillan, very nice as well, just different. Room fixtures are all high end. Lunches and dinners were excellent, with great presentation. Without fail, all of the... More

@kevin_from_AKandCO thanks for the excellent summary and detail of the resort experience you had earlier this month. I'm glad to see we provided such an all-around fun stay - and a comfortable one. Sorry to hear the breakfast options were too limited...you're right, we do offer the hearty traditional breakfasts for much of the menu, and several days of breakfasts... More

Roche Harbor may not be a hop, skip and a jump from anywhere, but the "challenge" of getting here offers a HUGE payoff. The Resort is gorgeous, diverse, compelling, romantic, full of life. Nooks and crannies offer continual surprises. A variety of room offerings and settings. The food?!? Over the top in preparation and flavors - presented in an understated,... More
