Visited Orcas Island with a groupon. Stayed in a lodge room and was very nice. All we needed as we spent our time seeing the island. Took 7 hours to get there from Victoria (Canada) so had dinner in the on site restaurant. Was very pricey but sat on the deck and enjoyed the view, weather and wildlife. (Deer and rabbits) Would recommend for anyone wanting to be away from noise, but I would prefer to stay closer to town, although the drive to town was not long. Did not see any staff, but did not need to.

This area (San Juan Islands, WA) is the best kept secret of the Pacific Northwest. Deer Harbor Inn was intimate and quiet. The staff was helpful; however, they weren't around most of our stay. The rooms are small, but comfortable - maximum of 2 occupants. I would stay here again if I ever visit the area again. This is a place for couples.

Room Tip: Get a room on the second floor

We booked the entire Lodge and Pond Cottage to house many of the guests for our daughter's wedding, and had our rehearsal dinner at the wonderful onsite Deer Harbor Restaurant. We even used Deer Harbor Catering for the wedding itself at a different site. It was a fabulous experience from beginning to end with staff members going out of their way to care for our unique needs. Highly recommended for large groups that want to hang out together in a spectacularly beautiful setting.

The Pond Cottage was very nice, nicely appointed, stocked very well. The beds were awesome, tho' we do not sleep well on foam. We ate out mostly, the restaurant on site was very nice; not open as advertised. It was expensive!

The questionable? We saw no one, called repeatedly to no avail. No cleaning instructions. None of the remotes worked for TV, DVD, etc. Lights flickered at night. A little personal service would have been greatly appreciated.

Honestly, I got a great deal from groupon, but I would pay full price to stay here. They did some obvious upgrades, so now both rooms have king size beds and a futon in the living room. I would say that six people may have been too many, so next time I would only have four come. If you bring an air mattress, two slept in the living room while the others shared the bedrooms.
Overall the cabin was clean, and very quiet. The grounds are pretty small, but you don't feel like people are around you. We saw bunnies, and deer. Plus two cats that must live on the property. The pond cottage was perfect for our relaxing getaway! The hot tub could fit four, and smelled like chemicals, but was pretty clean. We only used it one night. The kitchen was perfect for the meals we cooked. Had a coffee pot as well to make some early morning coffee.
The town Eastsouth is amazing, it's small but has a lot of little shops around. And it was only like a 20 minute drive from the Inn.
Overall this was an amazing experience!!

Room Tip: Pond Cottage was largest on the property. If you get on the deck of the restaurant, you can see a vi...
