I booked three rooms here for myself and five friends. I chose the hotel mainly because the location fit well with our biking itinerary. The price was very reasonable so I wondered if the quality would be sub-par or if there would be a lot of noise from the ferry dock, but I was wrong. The hotel is wonderfully charming and very quiet and the views from most windows are stunning. It is beautifully landscaped and has a very homey feel about it. We had a room with a shared bath which I liked because it reminded me of the quaint inns I've stayed at in Europe. But the other two rooms had private baths. The hotel is well maintained and each of our rooms and beds were very comfortable.
We ate in the restaurant for dinner and in the cafe for breakfast and the food was outstanding. We all agreed that our dinners were as good as the food in many of the best restaurants we've visited in Seattle and we asked the waitress to give our highest complements to the chef. We were also lucky to stay on a night when there was live music in the restaurant. Unfortunately, the main dining area was packed so they offered us private dining in another room but where we could still hear the band. Several times during dinner we paused mid-conversation to listen because the singers and musicians were so unbelievably good, it was hard to believe they were playing in such a small venue.
The owner of the hotel is very friendly and took time to visit with us and check in on us a few times to ensure we had everything we needed. He said that he and his wife have been running the hotel for over 10? years, and live there with their two daughters.
We love the San Juan islands and have stayed in several hotels and B&Bs over the past 20 years, but this was by far my best experience. My friends all loved it and thanked me many times for choosing it.
