This inn was adorable! A perfect setting for a quick weekend away. The lodge rooms were spacious, had a electronic fireplace, excellent wifi, a television, toaster, hair dryer, coffee maker and comfy bed. There was even a picnic basket provided in our room with breakfast foods (like oatmeal and baked goods), fruit, water and OJ. We didn't end up using...

The room was very nice, the setting was wonderful (very close to the marina), and the hosts were more than gracious. We took advantage of the hot tub every night, and really enjoyed the peace and quiet. The inn has an excellent and highly rated restaurant, although we weren't able to dine there during our brief stay. It was also...

I booked this lodge room 8 through Travelzoo. Turns out that even with the discount it was still overpriced. When we arrived we rang the bell and the owner drives over in a golf cart (only a short walk away). He barely says hello, hands us the key, points to our lodge room and drives off. Not a welcome or...

If you need a place to get away from it all, this place fits the bill. Our room was small,but very clean and very charming. You get a breakfast basket with fruit, instant oatmeal, bagels etc:every morning. We especialy liked sitting out on the deck in the eveninfg. It's rustic, but we liked it and enjoyed our stay.

We visited the Deer Harbor Inn this summer. We had been camping on the island and would spend our last 2 nights there. Our plans changed, and I called to see about modifying the reservation, and I was scolded for even asking. Waited awhile for the innkeepers upon arrival and then given the wrong key. Disappointed that it wasnt closer...

This is a rustic and lovely inn. We had great difficulty finding it in the dark because neither of 2 GPS's could find the Inn or the street. We called the Inn and got friendly help. The rooms are clean and have a toaster and a fridge. The bed is comfy , the bathroom has a large vanity top with...

We had a great stay at the Deer Harbor Inn. Very clean, comfortable, and beautiful lodge! The Inn's location allows guests to experience The San Juans without dealing with crowds. However, the ferry dock and downtown Eastsound were still very accessible.

I received a LivingSocial certificate as a gift, which included a one night stay plus whale-watching and meal at the restaurant. I couldn't make it before the expiration date, but took the chance to call and ask if I could use the certificate for the time period just before new years eve (definately the off season). The woman that I...

We stayed in the lodge (room 8). Beautiful room - large, comfortable bed and the cleanest room I've been in this side of a laboratory. The room had a (distant) view of Deer Harbor marina. I'm not sure what recent reviewers were expecting. The grounds looked fine to me. The grass was mown. It's not like a bowling green, but...
