We had stayed at other locations on Orcas Island, as well as several of the other islands among the San Juans. We had avoided Rosario because of the word "resort." Big mistake on our part. This place is fantastic, as is the restaurant food and service. The "lodge" is historic, and even contains a small museum of the origins of this place and the history of Orcas. I don't believe there are rooms in the lodge, but that's where you check in. We stayed at one of the outlying buildings overlooking the water. It was about a five-minute walk from our room to the restaurant in the lodge. Do not complain about a five-minute walk. It's beautiful. By the way, request a room on at least the second floor of your building so you can clearly view the water from an elevation. Also, the indoor pool is in the lodge, as is the spa (a swirling hot tub) and massages if you want to schedule that sort of thing. Highly recommended.

Dear 1776-Raider, We are so happy you had a "surprising" experience at Rosario (I will leave off "resort," as it really is such a unique and difficult place to describe)! Thank you for highly recommending us and hopefully we will see you again soon.

We stayed 3 nights at this resort over New Years. We returned to this resort because it offered the most for the money, at least over the holidays. Well appointed clean rooms, beautiful views, beautiful location (minutes from Moran State Park), a fine restaurant, comfy lounge with live entertainment, spa facilities, a gift shop, and a touch of the island culture (the lobby had several Christmas trees decorated by island community groups). We bypassed the New Years Eve gala as it was too pricey for us, opting instead to have a nice dinner at another resort down island. On the downside: the rough road between the guest buildings (where we stayed) and the main resort building; and the remoteness of the resort (~20 minutes from town) -- although that may be a plus for some!

I took my Fiancé here for her birthday. The staff worked with me to set the room up with flowers delivered from the local florist and made sure everything was amazing. This place is beautiful and so picturesque it could be a post card. It captures the arts and crafts movement perfectly! The attention to detail in the workmanship of this hotel is incredible! I definitely recommend this place to anyone especially for romantic getaways! The restaurant is fantastic! We also had a couples massage that was great!

My wife and I stayed at Rosario for our 25th wedding anniversary. We had a nice Harborside Hearth Suite room that was dated, but awesome view of the water and resort. The lounge was inviting as we had drinks and dinner there one night then dinner at the main restaurant that was great! We spent 10 days at 3 different islands in the San Juans and this was our favorite!

Stayed in a harborside room with direct view of water. View is lovely and the grounds are wonderful. The rooms need some updating though. Bedding was fine, but rest needs to be updated including bathroom fixtures, doors, etc. and you can hear sounds in other rooms. Honestly we love Rosario but this harborside bldg. needs some major updating. The mansion is lovely and you can see it and marina from this bldg. which is really nice.
