Very comfortable bed, lovely site right by the beach with a nice veranda to hang out in the sun and enjoy the view. Doug and Michele were great and thoughtful hosts, and prepared some delicious and copious breakfasts. Lots of personal touches and attentions. I highly recommend!

We stayed at MacKaye and found the hosts very accommodating and pleasant. Doug and Michele served a wonderful breakfast and were a great source of information. The home is across the street from the harbor and has fabulous views. A great spot for couples!

If you are craving a complete separation from the madness and incomprehensibility of our world, then this is the place to come. There is no TV or internet, the phone service is sporadic and you need a boat to get here. Mackaye Harbor envelops you in its idyll as soon as you get to the start of the bay. Doug and Michele, the innkeepers, were very kind and helpful and really made the stay as pleasant and comfortable as they could. There was an impending strike by WA ferries on our departure day and Michele took great pains to get us onto an alternative ferry. Without her help we could have been stuck there - but how awful would that have been?!

My husband and I, and our two close friends, had an absolutely fantastic 3-night stay at MacKaye Harbor Inn. TOur room was very comfortable and pretty, the food was excellent, and the view from the dining area was stunning. Michelle and Doug were incredibly helpful throughout our visit - directing us to great beaches and restaurants, suggesting wonderful activities, helping us get to our ferry on time, and giving us lots of interesting background information about the island and inn. We will definitely be back!

This was our first bed and breakfast. Michelle and Doug were warm and helpful---helping us to stay on track of a four day three island whirlwind. Favorite Island---Lopez---and none of us wanted to leave Mackaye Harbor Inn.

We spent 5 lovely quiet nights at MacKaye Harbor Inn on the south end of Lopez Island, watching the sunset from our window, walking the beach at low tide in the early morning, having gourmet breakfasts (a different one each morning!), and a lovely porch to tuck in for a read or a nap. As we know the island well, we knew we were not far from good hikes/walks. They had kayaks for use in the large bay. Michelle and Doug went out of their way to accommodate any requests or needs. Highly recommended!

We spent an amazing two nights in the captain's room in this fabulous bed and breakfast Inn. It is a historic house located on a private beach with a beautiful view of the water. Our wonderful hosts, Michelle and Doug tended to our every need without being intrusive. We had a very tasty breakfast served to us every morning. They gave us suggestions of where to go and for places to eat. We wished we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be back!.

This is a small, beautifully kept inn, New England style, with welcoming hosts and fabulous views. Located on the lovely Mackaye Harbor, the area is quiet, peaceful and rejuvenating. Lopez itself is a dream for bicyclers and kayakers. Mostly rural and only accessible by ferry or seaplane, it hosts a sweet village and an entrancing marina.

For 2 nights we had the huge pleasure of using/sleeping in the Harbor Suite, the largest and most expensive room. Is it worth it? Totally! We have each great views from our sitting room, even better views from our private balcony. Watching the sunset over the bay was both beautiful and calming. We could even see some of the view from bed. It is all very comfortable. Each of the available guest rooms looked very attractive and comfortable. Hosts Michele and Doug are very warm and welcoming. They are very informative about the area. Of course there there was the scrumptious breakfast each morning! An additional treat was special touch provided by a note wishing us happy anniversary with pieces of Lopez Island fudge. On our full day, Michele graciously packed a grand picnic lunch for us, which we enjoyed at a viewpoint at Watmough Preserve. There is free wifi. The inn is an easy drive to any of the numerous beautiful areas on the island. Some examples: Watmough Preserve, only about a 10 minute drive, then a short hike to a stunning beach, alongside a wetlands, AND up the hill are more fabulous views. Just a few minutes down the same road is the 15 minute hike to Colville Point, with marvelous scenery abounding. It is about a three minute drive (or a quick bicycle ride) to the Agate Beach County Park, a beautiful place on its own, and is also the parking area for the hiking trail to the spectacular Iceberg Point. It is also only just a few minutes from Lopez Town. It would also be neat a neat base for bicycle rides to areas. Would we stay here again? Absolutely!

Right on the beach. We stayed in the Captains room which is on the first floor. It is right by the front door, but still quiet and we had our own private deck. We celebrated our wedding anniversary and Mike and Robin had a bottle of wine for us. Amazing breakfasts as they had a guest French chef who made croissants and then muffins for our 2 day stay. They provide a nice walking trail guide which was very handy. Incredible sunset view from Agate Beach.
