We spent 2 nights in one of the cottages. We would have spent another night, but they were all booked up. The staff was friendly and helpful. This is a quieter part of the island. If you want to be within walking distance to shopping and restaurants this may not be the place for you. There is one restaurant on... More

I'm the first to admit that we're a little picky about hotels. This place was comfortable but seemed a little run down, tired and needed a little TLC! Overall it was okay, but was certainly dated. Coffee seemed like a nice addition but open, unsealed cans didn't seem hygienic.. Restaurant was good, great food and good service. To rate it... More

We had family come from the East Coast for a summer "family time" vacation. There were many options for us to spread out...the Norton House, Lodge, Harbor View Suite finding very comfortable beds, really clean and well equipped kitchens, TV, record player, DVD. The restaurant was a real treat with real homemade soups, salads, steaks perfect as well as the... More

We flew out to Seattle (live in North Florida), picked up a car, drove two hours to ferry, ferried across (hour and half) to Orcas Island. Had to remind ourselves to slow down and enjoy the scenery! It's a slower pace than we are used to. The Inn, while not in the least bit fancy, was very clean and comfortable.... More

Remodeled old Lodge.. clean room. Comfortable bed.. nice surroundings. One tip: get one of the cabins or upstairs room in the lodge.. DON"T get a downstairs room in the lodge..Had we gotten a cabin or upstairs room, things would have been much better. There was only downstairs rooms in the lodge available when we booked. When they modernized the lodge,... More

The Deer Harbor Inn has several different options you can stay in, including cabins, hotel rooms, and a little cottage called "Norton House". We chose the Norton House option, and got it with a Groupon. The Groupon was several hundred dollars for the weekend, and while the location was nice, the cottage was quite run down with doors not closing,... More

Very quiet. Clean room, nice big bathroom. It was great having a mini fridge in the room. Complimentary water bottles, granola bars and yogurt were in the room when we arrived. Don't be alarmed if you don't actually talk to anyone that works there. Just pick your welcome bag and key at the office, hassle free and be on your... More

This was our first boating trip to the San Juan Islands and needed to moor at a marina that was fairly centrally located to all the other harbors and islands around us, but wanted to stay at an inn or lodge close to the marina instead of living on the boat. Deer Harbor Inn was the perfect spot geographically. They... 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
