June, 2012 (I am writing this a little late, so sorry for the mix up in travel time I posted - it wouldn't let me go back any further than Nov, 2012 with my review post), my fiancé and I traveled to Orcas Island for a destination wedding for just the two of us and picked the Rosario. It was perfect! We spent a total of 3 nights; 2 nights in one of the Bayside King rooms and the final night in the Roundhouse Suite. The Bayside King room was enchanting with a balcony overlooking the bay water in which we could see dozens of orange starfish in the rocks below every night and watch the sail boats and sea planes come in to the bay every day. The third day we checked into the Roundhouse Suite and had our ceremony on the cliff ledge just outside the Roundhouse overlooking the Bay. It was so beautiful and so much more special that I could have ever dreamed! The staff, accomodations and food were the best the whole time we were there! And there is so much to see on Orcas Island! The entrance to Moran State Park with Mount Constitution is just outside the entrance to the Rosario. We will be going back for future anniversaries and would recommend the Rosario for any couples looking for that special place for a wedding, honeymoon or anniversary.
Sandy Playa officiated our ceremony and, for a very economical fee, supplied the witnesses, our flowers, the guitar accompaniment and all the required paperwork. I would also recommend her to anyone needing wedding services. The resort has her contact information.
