A friend and I traveled to Lopez Island to hike and bird watch. We stayed at MacKaye Harbor Inn one evening and wished we could have stayed longer. Each room was charmingly decorated, with marvelous views from each window. The large front porch was so inviting. Hosts Robin and Mike were friendly and welcoming. Robin served a delightful breakfast. I...

We planned a stay here based upon reviews of prior guests. Every now and then you meet a couple like Robin and Mike(the couple in charge ). The hospitality was instant. Mike met us with a smile and gave us the tour & keys to our lovely room with a view of the Bay. We had a private deck to...

We really enjoyed our stay at this lovingly cared-for B & B on quiet, rural Lopez Island. The views and chairs on the beach and lawn make one feel very much at home. Near beautiful Agate Cove and Iceberg Point, this inn includes warm hosts and a delicious, home-cooked breakfast. Every room is spotless and comfortable. Some have harbor views....

My husband and I had stayed at nice B & Bs on San Juan Island, and also Orcas Island---this was our first visit to Lopez. We stayed in the Blue Room on the second floor with awesome views of the water and boats. Even though the bathroom was small, it posed no problem for us. Spotlessly clean room/bathroom, comfortable bed,...

We have stayed on Lopez before so knew the island. The location is perfect for seclusion but as bicyclists we found the location a problem for evening meals. We were in Blue Room with a perfect view for sunset and a view of the water in the harbour. Our only disappointment was the size of the shower stall. I am...

Robinski, Owner at MacKaye Harbor Inn, responded to this review

We wish we knew your concerns during your visit but appreciate the opportunity to respond now. The Blue Room has the smallest bathroom of all our rooms, shower being 2" less than standard. When remodeling is allowed by county regulations for historic homes but adding floor space is not, one does the best within the restrictions. Regarding the price, please...

I ventured to Lopez last week for a poetry writing workshop. Where I stayed was beside the point. I needed a bed. However, I hit upon a great place–The MacKaye Harbor Inn– offering sweet-simple comfort with a gorgeous view. The owners Mike and Robin have created an Inn that provides sweet relief from the bump and grind of the city....

While many destinations and inns oversell themselves as a getaway, MacKaye Harbor Inn is the real thing. With access to a secluded beach, water views from the porch and some rooms, free bikes, innovative breakfasts and easy access to some of Lopez's finest pleasures, the inn is worth every penny of the price tag. In the Pacific NW, weather will...

My wife and I always have a little anxiety going to B and B's having had some bad experiences. We decided to try again and were we happy we did.

We celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary with two nights at the MacKaye Harbor Inn. What a blessed choice! We will definitely NOT wait another 5 years to return!
