“The best B&B we've ever been to!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

We found the Double Mountain B&B on Orcas island, WA through the Chamber of Commerce for the San Juan Islands. It is situated up a rather rough road just outside of Eastsound. The house/home overlooks the entire sound and the tiny airport where little planes only fly out of. They are fun to watch especially since you really never hear them because they are below you. The bedrooms were very comfortable and very clean.The breakfast Gail prepares is to die for! The 'Dutch Babies' baked pancakes with homemade berry preserves, homemade applesauce, sausages and fruit were indescribably delicious! Oatmeal pancakes and a Mexican baked omelet graced the table over our next few days. We geared our last morning all around not missing breakfast before we had to leave. Sharing tables with the other guests was a great way to meet new friends and share their travel experiences. Gail also gave wonderful suggestions for places to see and things to do.

Room Tip: A great value so book early

As all the people have said, this Inn has gorgeous 180-degree views, and you can see expansive views of the salt water surrounding Orcas Island. And...you are actually ABOVE the airport landing pattern so it is an additional treat to be able to see planes landing and taking off (Don't worry, it is far away you do NOT hear them!).

Gail is also a SUPERB cook, and everything she made for us was wonderful!!! We stayed in a room with a king bed and the room also had an amazing view of the local hills and salt water.

The road to the location is a little steep but smooth gravel. Just take your time and you will be fine. We highly recommend this wonderful inn!!

We enjoyed everything about Double Mountain! The 1st thing you notice is the how warm & friendly the owner is and the incredible views from the top of the hill! The breakfast are hearty and delicious! Orcas Island is a beautiful place with plenty of good food, water sports & handmade pottery.

My wife and I just love it here. We are from Kirkland, Washington and when we need to get away, we just love to come here. It's quite, and quaint, and very clean and the food is to die for!!!!!

I am not kidding when I say that its the best breakfast I have ever had in my life, please don't tell my mother that!!!!! She serves it hot from the stove, and its awesome.

We stay here allot but now we will try to come once every three months or so!!!!!

Great B & B! No, its not fancy, but it has a good "grandma's house" kind of feel. The owner makes you feel warm inside and she could cheer up anyone!!!!!

Also the view is the BEST VIEW on Orcas......

We stayed at the Double Mountain Bed & Breakfast August 10th and 11th, 2006... it was a wonderful stay!

It is no easy feat getting to Orcas Island! There is a ferry that you take over there... and you need to be at the ferry dock an hour and a half before the ferry leaves. THEN it's another hour ride on the boat to the island. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time!

Once on Orcas, everything is very easy-going! We arrived at DM at 10pm (because we didn't respect that ferry schedule... it is really not to be messed with!), and Gail was up and waiting for us. She showed us to our room... we were pleasantly surprised at the size of the Eagle's View room. In the main area of the room, there is a double bed, and a daybed. There is a kitchenette, as well... and a big bathroom with a standing shower. The main room has a door to an enclosed patio with a very BIG jacuzzi! The patio also leads out to the balcony... and the views are amazing! PLUS there is a private bedroom off the main room, with a double bed... and access to the balcony. This room could sleep 5 people, although the website says only 4.

In the morning, we truly got to experience the B&B. We felt right at home here... and we chatted with Gail as she made a delicious breakfast-- quiche with english muffins, fruit, coffee and juice. She told us some island history and fun facts... and directed us to some good hiking spots for the day. We came and went as we pleased; Gail was very accommodating!

We would definitely stay here again, if we ever return to Orcas Island!!

After extensive Internet research on the many B&B's available on Orcas Island, we decided on the Double Mountain - making our decision based on the website pictures of the view and the very reasonable rates.

We were not disappointed! The views are breathtaking...you can see the lights of Canada on a clear night. We stayed in the Sunrise Vista Suite, which was a very large and comfortable room with a TV, VCR (and assortment of movies), mini-fridge, two sinks, and a full tub/shower...all for $125! The room opens up through a sliding door to a large deck from which we could enjoy the view and the starry night sky.

Staying at the Double Mountain was like staying at the home of a good friend. Warm, friendly and personal...not like some of the fancier but more commercial B&B's that seem to be the trend nowadays. The proprietor, Gail, is friendly and a wonderful cook. Her breakfasts were wonderful - Dutch Babies served with your choice of lemon and powdered sugar, home made applesauce or raspberry sauce, sausages, fresh fruit, orange juice and coffee...on the second morning, mushroom and cheese omlettes, buttered english muffins with preserves, and again - the fresh fruit (melons and fresh berries), OJ and coffee. I should mention that Gail got up early the second morning to serve breakfast for us by 7:30 - since we had to catch an early ferry back to the mainland. She was also a wealth of information regarding things to do, places to go, and where to get a good meal.

Double Mountain is conveniently located just minutes out of EastSound and a short drive from Moran State Park. Because it's at the top of a steep and somewhat winding gravel road, you feel like you're really "away from it all" - even though you're just minutes away from the action.

I highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for value, comfort and good food in a home-like setting - with a spectacular view!

Spent 2 nights at the Double Mountain and would love to return. We stayed in the Sunrise Vista room (which opens onto the upper deck) and just loved it. The house is on the top of a small mountain, and the view is incredible. We were there during a full moon, and I'll never forget that giant moon shining on the water - just breathtaking. The owner is as pleasant as can be, and her breakfasts were delicious!
