Orcas, Orcas Island, San Juan Islands, Washington

Interaction with guests
Having operated Dream Cottages on Orcas Island for many years, we appreciate our guests desire for a more romantic and private lodging experience. We strive to provide that cozy and intimate, yet comfortable space for our Inn guests. Our Inn-Keeper does a complete prior to check-in walk through and leaves a card with your name on the door and keys in door for guests to check themselves in. Check in is at 4:00p.m.; check out at 11:00 a.m. We respect your privacy and unless asked, no one enters your space while you are here. Lie in bed all day with a good book or just sit still looking at the ever changing views from your window. ​ *Housekeeping is provided every 3rd day of your stay. More frequent cleans by prior arrangement.

We rented the Lodge Pine and Madrona suites. The rooms were beautifully decorated and everything was perfect when we arrived, including a complimentary arrangement of snacks, fruit and yogurt. The inn is located on peaceful, quiet West Sound with lovely views from our windows. It’s...More

Thank you. We're glad that you were able to experience Kingfish Inn in two different suites. While all decorated in our "country simple" style, we enjoy giving them individual styles. Next time, please try our Inn Suites with their own decks.

Although the Westbound restaurant on the bottom floor was not open, staff had left abundant treats for breakfast, the bed was comfortable and the room cozy and well appointed. Check in was a breeze and all contact with staff was lovely. Would highly recommend.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. The restaurant was taking a break this year but will be open and wonderful next season. We like to be more than a place to sleep and and are happy when guests agree.

We loved the out-of-the-way location, the view of the bay, and the charming room with balcony. Unfortunately, the onsite café was closed for the season; having it would have made breakfast and lunch easier. Our room was spacious and exactly what we would want from...More

About the neighborhood
Orcas Island, located between the U.S. Washington State mainland and British Columbia's Vancouver Island (Canada), is considered to be the most spectacular of the San Juan Islands.

Rural in nature with a shape that creates more waterfront than most islands. You will be driving down valleys up hills and down to the water in minutes. Views are ever changing but always beautiful. Kingfish Inn is on the corner of Crow Valley and Deer Harbor Roads--both designated scenic byways. Water and the verdant valley are both minutes away.
Getting around
The odd and shape and the ever-changing topography of Orcas Island makes it difficult to navigate without a car. T

he island is 54 square miles BIG, and rather than circular, roads branch out in fingers with hamlets, villages and artists communities at the end of each (all with their own unique character).

Guests can bring a car on the ferry or if coming on island by plane. . . have a car waiting for you at the airport, or in the case of Spruce Suite at Kingfish Inn, waiting for you at the dock as you fly into the waters of West Sound via Kenmore's float plane.
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Eastsound: 7.5 mi
Ferry: Orcas: 3.7 mi
Most guests arrive on island via the Washington Ferries departing from Anacortes. The ferries carry both car and foot passengers and the trip to Orcas Island scenic. For those looking for an adventure, we recommend Kenmore airline's float planes that leaves from Lake Union in Seattle and land right in front of Kingfish Inn on the waters of West Sound.
