Spent only one night at the Inn as that was only availability......room was large, comfortable - good bed, 2 easy chairs and a wonderful walk-in shower (we seniors love this) and spa tub for the younger set! We had a great view of the ferry dock and Active Pass so it was not boring sitting on patio or in room.... More

Stayed at the hotel for a wedding and was very impressed by the beachside setting, spacious rooms and great food. The venue is ideal for a long weekend away and was a fantastic setting for a wedding. The staff were helpful and friendly and helped make for a memorable weekend.

This is a really lovely location for a couple of days getaway. You can really relax and recharge! Food is really good too. Particularly breakfast! Book a suite if you can afford a bit extra ... A real treat! There is a kitchen, outdoor spa bath and beautiful views of the ocean. Great anytime of year!

We return every year because this is such a relaxing, welcoming place (including our 4 year old and parents). There are few things better than watching ferries cruise by with otters, herons, whales, and eagles in front. Conny, Warren and the rest of the staff are extremely accommodating but not intrusive. Pizza's always good.

We were here 8 years ago. We loved it then and it was worth the trip back. We are from New Jersey so we really traveled to get here. Room 5 is large and gorgeous with a wood burning fireplace in front of a king sized bed- just Heavenly.

Excellent room. Ground level with porch looking directly at Mt Baker and the ferry dock -always something happening on the water. Swimming opportunities in Sturdies Bay right on the property. Only downside is that there is very little to do in the local shops so bring a book - or drive so you have a car to explore the island.

We didn't stay here, but I couldn't find the place to review just the restaurant part. Sunday night was when we visited, and it was Prime Rib night! How could you not? It was the set menu, for $29.00, if I remember correctly. You get a nice appetizer, the prime rib dinner, and then dessert to top it off! And... More
