We wanted to do something last minute for Memorial Day weekend - had been to Orcas Island two years ago, and enjoyed it very much. Now we have an 18-month-old son and we had to find a family-friendly place on the island. This is the only place we could find that welcomed children under 10, and we are sure glad we did! Plus, we took advantage of their "last-minute-special," which gives you their best available room for $95 when booking within 24 hours of your stay. The room was regularly $149! It was perfect for us and our toddler as it had a separate entrance, a small living-room area with a couch and armoire, and a huge closet to store all of the stuff a little boy needs! We arrived an hour early, but it was no problem and we were shown right to our room. The farm is located on two acres with some sheep and a friendly cat roaming the property, a lavender field is adjacent, and there is a deck with a hot tub and plenty of places to lounge outside. The owners were very good about suggesting some fun things to do with the little one, and we ended up doing a half-mile hike to a beach near Obstruction Pass. Their hot tub was a welcome sight after carrying our son on our shoulders! Breakfast the next morning was divine: berry crepes, bacon, fresh fruit, OJ and coffee. They even made-to-order a scrambled egg for our son! The family-style dining around their huge kitchen table was fun, as we got to mingle with the other guests and have some great conversation. There were even robes in our room, which one of the owners told us they have made through a wholesale company who also makes robes for the Four Seasons - she was very proud of that! All in all, a wonderful place to stay for couples, families, singles or anyone!
