“The Best Place to Stay on Orcus Island”
Reviewed May 9, 2005

This resort is beautiful! The grounds are postcard perfect and the rooms are very clean and spacious. We loved sleeping in the comfortable bed with the luxurious, soft sheets. The view from our deck was magnificent. We took a jacuzzi on our front deck and watched the sunset. The staff was warm and friendly. They gave us great restaurant recommendations and ideas for hikes and sight-seeing. The breakfast was also very yummy. I LOVED this resort... it exceeded my expectations.

What a fantastic getaway! Just loved this resort. The deluxe cottages are wonderful! Everything you need for a perfect weekend away! The harbor and marina are gorgeous! The facilities are fantastic and the staff is exceptional! Do yourself a favor and visit for yourself. The minute we checked in, I knew I would be back!!!! TERRIFIC!

My wife and I stayed here earlier this summer, in one of the cottages. Very expensive but worth it if you are looking to get away and can appreciate this lovely harbor village. The cottages are weather-beaten from the outside, but inside they are resort-quality. Spacious main rooms have fireplace, sitting area, tv and stereo, refrigerator and microwave (but no minibar). Bathrooms are huge with whirlpool tubs. Best of all, each cottage has a hot tub on a deck overlooking the harbor. We spent a lot fot ime relaxing in it with a bottle of wine. The place is rustic and there are no resort amenities (try Rosario on the other side of Orcas Island if you need a full service resort) and there isn't much to do but read and explore the island. There are whale watches out of Deer Harbor (highly recommended) and you can always island-hop (leave your car behind) on the state ferry system. Deer Harbor itself has little aside from the marina. I don't even think there's a gas station. The town's two restaurants are casual but certainly adequate. The Starfish is part of the resort and up the hill you can eat at the Deer Harbor Inn, which offers a great view and a meadow with -- what else? -- deer running around. We have stayed at the Inn in previous visits to Deer Harbor and the accommodations, though perfectly ok, are not anywhere near what the Resort at Deer Harbor offers, at least in the cottages. Still, keep in mind that Deer Harbor is on an island and is small and somewhat remote and everything runs on island time. The term "resort" is not really apt. No one will fuss over you here. But the San Juan Islands are enchanting and Deer Harbor Resort is a great place to stay and enjoy what this part of the country offers. A nice spot for a romantic getaway too.
