This is a beautiful bed and breakfast hidden among the trees on beautiful Orcas Island. We had a beautiful, well appointed room which included a CD player with relaxing music CDs stacked next to it. There was television, but we didn't have the inclination to even turn it on. I enjoyed reading and relaxing either outside or even in our... More

Management response:

We appreciate the generally kind remarks; however, comments about "too many rules" is surprising given their context. We perceived that there was some misunderstanding about our policy that guests not use our kitchen facilities even though we make our policy on this clearly known to guests at check-in and in our room information books. Also we frown on guests actually... More

I returned last week from a week visiting friends in Seattle and the last two days I escaped to my favorite place on earth - the San Juan Islands. I had read the reviews of Otters Pond B and B and felt this would be the perfect place for some alone time. Indeed, it is close to Moran State Park... More

This was my sister's and mine first trip to the San Juan Islands and we made the perfect choice to stay at the Otters Pond Bed and Breakfast. The breakfasts that were served each morning were 5 course meals and opened up my idea of what I could make for breakfast. Also included with a stay at Otters Pond is... More

Carl and Sue are wonderful hosts. They are very outgoing and a pleasure to visit with. The five course breakfast each day was a special treat for us both. The Deer are everywhere, caution drive slowly almost hit one that ran across the road. Great getaway, lots of birds on the property, some we had never seen. We look forward... More

We actually planned our last vacation around spending 2 nights here. We had never been to the San Juan islands, and this place helped make the trip a great experience! Carl and Sue were very welcoming and gave us pointers about what to do on the islands. We stayed in the swan room which was quite spacious and very comfortable.... More

My wife and I went to Otters Pond for a get-away weekend, and it lived up to all our expectations. The breakfast was delicious and the pace of the inn was relaxing and refreshing.

On very, very rare occassions, we decline a reservation request and our rationale for doing so invariably is based on health and safety concerns. We regret that our kindly phrased and helpful suggestions were considered to be rude. We received an on-line request for a reservation through our reservation system as submitted by this prospective guest. The credit card was... More

My mom took me to Otters Pond a few years ago on my first visit to the San Juan Islands. The room we stayed in (Bluebird, I believe) had a wonderful view of the pond and it's own bathroom with a huge shower right next door. Ever since staying at Otters Pond, I've been dreaming of their four course breakfasts... More

Having never stayed at a bed & breafast before, I was more than a little apprehensive about trying it. Otters Pond was my first experience and I must say set a high standard for comparing places I have stayed since. Carl and Susn were the gracious hosts that you read about in travel magazines. The meals were excellent. It was... More
