We spent two nights with John and Jeremy, the gracious hosts of the Inn on Orcas Island. Let's begin with the property. Tucked away, this beautiful Victorian house lures you in with its charm and pristine landscaping. We stayed in the Carriage House, a lovely suite/apt up a steep flight of stairs. We loved it! Bright and airy, clean and decorated in perfect island quirky style, we really enjoyed the stovepipe fireplace. Comfortable bed, full kitchen--all the amenities you might need including a gigantic chocolate chip cookie and bag of candy (courtesy of outstanding chef/baker/co-owner John) each day of our stay. Perhaps the biggest asset to this delightful inn is co-owner Jeremy. Thoughtful and intuitive, Jeremy knew (by virtue of a questionnaire included in the online reservation form) that I was gluten intolerant and made sure there was a comparable and delicious gf option for me at breakfast, a 5 star event in itself. John's culinary skills, coupled with the homey atmosphere of the breakfast room left all guests feeling satisfied and well cared for. Jeremy made himself available for consult on day trips, restaurants and shopping hot spots. He is the consummate host and innkeeper. We so enjoyed the peace and quiet and tranquil beauty of both the inn and Orcas Island; we anticipate many return trips. This is not a slick, polished 5-star hotel. It IS a charming, unexpected haven on a jewel of an island. I highly recommend it!
