With full disclosure, I've worked on projects for Dave Page, the proprietor of the Lodge. But I will tell you the King suite is every bit as nice as the best hotels on Orcas island, if not nicer. The room is brand new. Hardwood floors with supple asian rugs around the huge king size bed. Down feather bed and loads of pillows made it firm, but very comfortable. I tend to move around while I sleep and Wendy said she never woke up once.
The slade tile bathroom is huge. And a nice touch is the high, wide sliding glass window that you can peek out of while showering. The view is into a nice green space, surrounded by Doug firs, and Backen ferns.
The room has plenty of storage for our hiking gear and backpacks. And unlike some hotel rooms, there isn't a tight hall or crowded area anywhere.
There's a six foot + length leather couch, again feather/down filled, that's warm and so large I could stretch out and relax on it. The chair is similarly comfortable. The room was so comfortable we decided to return to the Lodge to make our plans with a bottle of wine and kicking back on the couch.
Its a short walk to the corner market, and they've got just about everything.
Overall outstanding room, one of the finest. The fact that the lodge has bunk rooms downstairs made me consider a longer vacation on the Island and bringing kids along, where they could stay in the bunk rooms. Can't beat the price $35 for bunk and a deal for the King Suite.
Definitely recommend the king suite for a romantic getaway.
