Every detail is taken care of here. One of the best places we have stayed. Deer right eating right near the porch. Breakfast was great. Only quibble is that we were not greeted and the breakfast was not explained by the staff. Our Stayman room was large with a great view. Would definitely stay again.

Beautiful place, great getaway. We eloped at the Turtleback Farm. Susan is a miracle worker. Rooms are very clean. No TV but it was wonderful relaxation. Lots of activities to do. We would highly recommend.

Three of us went on a bike touring weekend in the San Juan Islands. This was our first stay at the farm. Steve, the Inns Keeper of 30 years was very helpful, friendly, and courteous. The rooms are typical of an older, yet lovely farm house. Our bikes were stored under the back deck which worked perfectly. Orcas Taxi has... More

Well, there is a first time for everything in life and it is never too late to experience something new! We recently visited friends in Washington State. We were flying later in the week with them to Las Vegas to celebrate my college roommate's 65 birthday. Arriving a few days early, we had a few days to kill while they... More

I've stayed here both when I was young and as an adult, and it has always been tranquil, calm, and lovely. The rooms are just beautiful with their views overlooking the meadow, big windows, and quaint details, such as clawfoot bathtubs. Susan is personable and wise with great stories, yet perfectly efficient and helpful. The place is immaculately preserved without... More

I don't like to write negative reviews, so I've taken some time to think about this, but I must comment on our stay. Our sons gave us a weekend at this Inn. The owners and staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. There was nothing cozy or quaint about the stay. When we arrived the woman who works there was folding napkins... More

Absolutely wonderful, peaceful, and contemplative place. Have not been to a better B & B. You will love it! Unlike many B & Bs that have tacky and inappropriate Victorian decor, this one has totally appropriate and tasteful furnishings. And the breakfasts are more than tasteful, they are delicious.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Turtleback Farm Inn in Orcas as part of our trip to the San Juan Island. The Inn is so pretty and homely! Lovely garden at the front that we enjoyed from our "garden view" room, welcoming lounge with comfy sofa, books and board games, house beautifully decorated all around with wooden panels and...

Bill and Susan are the Innkeepers at Turtleback Farm Inn. We arrived about noon and Bill started taking notes for breakfast because I am a fussy eater. We asked about whale watching and Bill got on the phone immediately and we were booked on a 1 PM excursion. That evening Susan gave us dinner recommendations and advised us which locations... More
