We booked this sight-unseen through a Travelzoo special...2 nights for the price of one. We stayed in an upstairs lodge room, and found it absolutely delightful. It felt like we were in a treehouse. We could have pulled the curtains, but kept them open all day and night to keep the airy, open feeling. Bed was very comfy, picnic basket...

We booked the Deer Harbor Inn through groupon for two nights. The Inn is an older building but that is definatley part of it's charm. Our welcome basket had apples, orange juice,bananas and granola. The bed was very comfy - the grounds were lovely and it was a very peaceful place. We could hear the people upstairs but after being...

My wife and I spent two nights in late September and had a delightful stay. You have to keep in mind that this is a rustic lodge, not a modern resort hotel, so it isn't fancy. That said, our room had everything we needed. The basket of fruit, muffins, bagels, etc. that they leave each day was a nice touch....

Very low key stay and a bit funky... this is Island atmosphere. My wife and I went there with a Travelzoo deal for a low key relaxing time to celebrate her birthday. The building is historic but rooms are nicely renovated. The rest of the grounds are unpretentious but well maintained. We loved the home made granola in our picnic...

I thought I bought a special two night stay at the Deer Harbor Resort, a place I have always wanted to try. But when we drove out to Deer Harbor and saw signs pointing to 'Deer Harbor Inn' and 'Deer Harbor Resort' we started to get a bad feeling. Yes, I had made a reservation through Travelzoo for a two-for-one...

We are truely sorry the guest had such a bad experience at our Inn.The guest obviously thought they were staying at a different resort and had bad expectations to start with. We try very hard to provide our guest a charming and peaceful experience on Orcas.The guest checked in early and the housekeepers were still doing laundry. We have also...

We found the Deer Harbor Inn through a Groupon deal and stayed in the lodge. The room was very clean and comfortable and the grounds were well kept. It very relaxing and quiet. Some have mentioned that there was a lack of hospitality, but they would come in and replace the breakfast items and any other items that needed to...

Unfortunately I didn't do as much research of the island as I should of. If you want to completely get out of dodge then you should stay here, there is nothing and it's very very quiet. When we got to the place we kinda wondered around looking for a person, when we found the office no one was there just...

Thank you for the valuable comments about the Deer Harbor Inn. It is true that the Deer Harbor Inn is in a small hamlet without much of a town but we feel the is the charm of the Inn. Our rural location is close to whale watching,kayaking and sailing. We try to be in the office when ferries arrive and...

With 'inn' in the name, I expected a little more. The rooms in lodge are what you see. No complaints there. I was disappointed with the lack of hospitality. I am a visitor that likes to see the owner and be greeted with a face. The person to person interaction really makes a place what it is. I adored the...

We used a Travelzoo deal to visit Deer Harbor Inn during April. The overall experience was very relaxing. On first approach to the property it seemed a little more rustic than I expected. But the Pond cottage, where we were staying, is very well furnished with modern amenities and made the stay very comfortable. The place is not run like...

We had a trip planned to the Deer Harbor Inn for our anniversary. Unfortunately, our son ended up in the hospital and we had to cancel. I understand we were too close to the arrival date to get any sort of refund and I am cool with that. What I was not cool with was the completed lack of sympathy...
