Where do I even begin? I mean, honestly -- Chef Gretchen's culinary mind is genius combining such unique flavor combinations you will find yourself longing for San Juan Island just to return to Duck Soup!
When you arrive at the Soup, the precious red-roofed inn is a vision straight out of a fairytale. The inn itself is gracefully adorned in lush green climbing vines that are dotted with twinkling lights that add yet another element of romance to the air. The French windows from the dining room are wide open and from inside greet you with sweeping views of the mirrored pond outside. You can’t help but feel transported to another place and time when you are here.
The inside dining room offers a cozy feel with walls embellished with paintings from local island artist Malcom Ross as well as an inviting fireplace by which you can dine.
On the night we dined at Duck Soup, we were drawn outside by the lure of the forest lounge. The forest lounge pulls you in with its enchanting feel and if you have children they will enjoy the freedom to explore and play “make-believe,” all while in your sight. Our son could not stop picking the plump berries that seem to hang everywhere in abundance and he enjoyed the comfortable oversized driftwood seating next to the outdoor fire pit. Here is where you can relax, unwind and take in the idyllic surrounding.
After dinner, help yourself to the complementary fleece throws to cozy up with your loved one(s) next to the fire or choose to talk a leisurely stroll down to the pond to have a seat and watch the eagles soar above.
The food was nothing short of miraculous! Just look at some of the pictures I took -- they speak the story!
