Otters Pond B&B was a wonderful home for our 3 nights and 4 days on Orcas Island. Carl and Sue were attentive and helpful, and their 4 course breakfasts were delicious and nutritious! They make fantastic coffee. They were very kind in accommodating special dietary needs. We had the large Swan Room which was lovely, overlooking the beautiful pond and... More

Our two-night stay at Otters Pond couldn't have been nicer. It came in the middle of a long-ish driving vacation, so we were grateful for the clean, comfortable and peaceful break! We were in the Chickadee room, a smaller room (and described as such). But the closet is roomy, with 2 luggage stands, and the bathroom is spacious and well-appointed,... More

We stayed two nights at Otters Pond, in the Chickadee room. The room was nicely appointed, with a 4-poster bed, a large window looking onto the pond, and a much-appreciated ceiling fan. The attached bathroom had a claw-foot tub/shower. We enjoyed the breakfast, which was creative and healthful, with fresh fruit and steel-cut oatmeal among the dishes served. Breakfast is... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at Otters Pond on Orcas Island. Our room was comfortable, quiet and very clean. There were a couple rooms with televisions, but our room was not one of them, so when you returned to the house after dinner things were very quiet. The owners, Carl and Susan were very hospitable and offered... More

If you're seeking comfortable tranquility in a beautiful, natural setting, stay here! The property itself is almost enough to make your visit a great experience, but add two excellent inn keepers and you've got a winner.

Otter Pond B&B was a pleasant and peaceful getaway, particularly delightful as the weather happened to be beautiful during our 3 day stay. It is conveniently located between Moran State Park and Eastsound.

Carl and Sue made us feel welcome during our two-day stay and provided us with the most amazing four-course breakfasts. Multiple exterior feeders attracted all types of birds that kept us entertained, and the views of the pond from the dining area and deck added to the peaceful and soothing experience. We liked the location, which is just a short... More

The property is practically in Moran State Park. Ask for a room with a view of the actual pond and get ready to watch otter pond TV, featuring episode after episode of bird and aquatic wildlife.
