First things first, deer harbor is an amazing location. Its close enough to many activities and the view from the property (especially the Norton House) is amazing. Its hard to imagine a more idyllic place and the house comes complete with free (if slow) WiFi, which is essential since cell service on much of Orcas is spotty to nonexistent. The... More

It was a nice, quiet place and easy accessibility. A very trusting environment and the owners were very kind. Definitely would return and there is even a nice restaurant on site. We came in late and they fixed a meal when the place was closing. Deer and bunnies abound on the property and berry bushes are plentiful and the berries... More

We were looking for a place to get away from the maddening crowd. We found it in our stay on Orcas Island for three nights at the Deer Harbor Inn. We just had a room in the lodge, not one of the cute little cabins. It was very comfortable and clean. Pretty view and nice decor. The landscaping could use... More

We stayed in the Lodge (Room 4) for 2 nights to celebrate our anniversary. The room was comfortable and large enough for 2 people. We appreciated the breakfast snacks that are provided since the restaurant is only open for dinner. Our room wasn't serviced the second day for some reason, so no refill on the breakfast snacks ;-( The surroundings... More

Orchard cabin #1 was clean, well-appointed, cozy and surprisingly spacious, inside and out. Front deck was large and had dining set, back deck also large enough for hanging out. Nice hot tub (a little too hot for us). Inside, plenty of space and light (lots of windows!) Very comfy bed. Log furniture and gas fireplace added to ambiance. Completely quiet,... More

Visited Orcas Island with a groupon. Stayed in a lodge room and was very nice. All we needed as we spent our time seeing the island. Took 7 hours to get there from Victoria (Canada) so had dinner in the on site restaurant. Was very pricey but sat on the deck and enjoyed the view, weather and wildlife. (Deer and... More

This area (San Juan Islands, WA) is the best kept secret of the Pacific Northwest. Deer Harbor Inn was intimate and quiet. The staff was helpful; however, they weren't around most of our stay. The rooms are small, but comfortable - maximum of 2 occupants. I would stay here again if I ever visit the area again. This is a... More

We booked the entire Lodge and Pond Cottage to house many of the guests for our daughter's wedding, and had our rehearsal dinner at the wonderful onsite Deer Harbor Restaurant. We even used Deer Harbor Catering for the wedding itself at a different site. It was a fabulous experience from beginning to end with staff members going out of their... More

The Pond Cottage was very nice, nicely appointed, stocked very well. The beds were awesome, tho' we do not sleep well on foam. We ate out mostly, the restaurant on site was very nice; not open as advertised. It was expensive! The questionable? We saw no one, called repeatedly to no avail. No cleaning instructions. None of the remotes worked... More

Honestly, I got a great deal from groupon, but I would pay full price to stay here. They did some obvious upgrades, so now both rooms have king size beds and a futon in the living room. I would say that six people may have been too many, so next time I would only have four come. If you bring... More
