but not everything about the Inn is charming. First of all, you are on your own. No one is on property in charge and while you are invited to call the inn-keeper if you need anything, your cell phone will only work if you have the proper service provider (we did not.) We got lost finding the Inn because there is near universal confusion between Deer Harbor Inn and Deer Harbor Resort. That is not their fault, but not letting us know there was no place to get breakfast anywhere nearby kinda was. The "jacuzzi" was undersold, as well. It's just a smallish -- but very clean -- hot tub in a little enclosure in the parking lot. It had no power when we tried it, which was fixable with an adjustment to a breaker, but really this felt too much like being at home, not on vacation. The things we loved unreservedly beside the ubiquitous deer foraging for fallen fruit in the old orchard were the views, the proximity of the dock, and the restaurant. I've read all the varied reviews here, but we had a great salmon dinner with very nice service. Too bad the restaurant doesn't also do weekend breakfasts.

Nicely appointed upstairs room in the lodge, clean and in good repair. No elevator or ADA access. Extra towels,sheets, etc. in the communal area. Never saw a manager or caretaker. Fairly quiet except for some yapping dogs in one of the cabins that were let loose to chase the resident cat and the deer! The restaurant didn't offer any vegan options so we had to drive to East Sound for food. Horseshoes and bocci ball area, picnic tables under the apple trees. Fairly secluded location, so if you want to go on any adventures, you'll need to go elsewhere on the island. There is a marina with a whale watching tour near the pizza place not too far away. Nice two day stay overall.

Had a restful and comfortable stay at Deer Harbor Inn. We had a room in the lodge--it looks rustic but nicely appointed rooms, with a comfortable bed. Cozy sitting area and patios in the 'lodge' part, with stock of extra supplies for room if needed. (I'll note we were on bottom floor - noise from people above was noticeable, and they weren't being particularly loud. If noise at night/morning bothers you, might want to request room on top floor or take a separate cabin. We didn't see inside any of the cabins but photos show them to be nice inside as well. Not a lot to do at the Inn-- small grounds, with boccie, horseshoes, and a hot tub. A walkway leads down to Deer Harbor marina and the Island Pie Pizza/Italian restaurant (check ahead for days open). Marina has various activities available. But not a lot of other activities around area, so expect to be driving to other parts of the Island. The on-site restaurant (dinner only) while pricey, offered a good experience. It has a large patio with view and tranquil setting. The menu is heavy on seafood and meat, which neither my wife or I like, but they had a Caesar salad, and a tasty vegetable fettuccine in pesto. Piano player was a nice touch, and wonderful conversation with our server who was from the island. Other than in the restaurant we never saw any Inn staff--at check-in there is a small bag with your name+key. BTW, think ahead for breakfast--if you don't bring your own, you'll be driving 15+ minutes to get to EastSound.

Very cozy room, just off road. Great location, everything was very clean, access to extras (towels, soap, coffee...) easy, easy walk to dock and fishing, restaurant on premises was fantastic, serves family style.

We booked into thee resort through a special promotion in early May. We had a choice of rooms in the main log building allegedly with a view of Deer Harbor. The room was nice, comfortable with a on-suite bathroom and shower. The view of the harbour was a glimpse of water through trees and could have been anywhere.The TV did not work and the restaurant was closed. If you choose to book into Deer Harbour Inn during mid week, do not do it in early May if you expect to use their restaurant. It was open only on weekends. The room was comfortable enough but the Inn is located on one arm of the Island and a long way - 9 miles - from any place to eat. There is a marina nearby that does serve snacks during the day.
