Lieber Haven Resort & Marina
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Went with my girlfriends for a getaway. We couldn't get away from there fast enough. The place was dirty and gross. No tv no radio no games. The view was pretty but truly that's all it really has going for it. Couldn't wait to leave.

Room Tip: Bring you own soap and games. All the kitchen has is salt and pepper.

Stayed in a small studio that was badly in need of renovation. Floors were vacuumed but not clean. the room had a stale odor. The website advertises wifi but there was no coverage in the room and you had to go outside to the beach to find coverage. The building is quite rickety. I would not stay here again. For the same price, you can stay at Rosario.

Room Tip: seaside cabins might be better.

My husband and I and our adult son traveled by boat from Bellingham, WA for 3 Nts to enjoy the beauty of the San Juan Islands for the first time.
We found the cottages at Leiber Haven to be little pieces of paradise!
Each cottage has its own deck that extends right down to the sand, only steps away from the water. The view is beautiful, overlooking the docks out front and the tranquil ocean surrounding the islands. It should be noted that having our own boat made fishing and cruising easy and enjoyable with mooring always available at the docks out front. If you have the need for Internet access, there is wireless available from Orcas Island online for a nominal fee.

While we read some comments concerning the cleanliness of the cottages, we found ours clean and perfectly acceptable -- very similar to the cabins in the Eastern Sierras that we have enjoyed for many years now. The beds were comfortable and the linens and towels were fresh and clean.
You can ask for more linens, towels, soap, if you need them during your stay. If you're very particular about cleanliness and prefer a more antiseptic environment, perhaps Leiber Haven is not your best bet. These are older, well used cottages. However, we can't imagine you would find a more beautiful setting right on the water.
David & Kittie Baxter are most congenial and conscientious hosts! Mr. Baxter gave us the best tip of all as to where to catch salmon, yielding a nice, fat 18 lb King salmon for my husband--right there @ Obstruction point!! He checked in on us regularly and stopped by on our final evening just to see how we enjoyed our stay!
We had bit of rain one day and spent the day cruising around and taking fotos. We ended up at East Sound where u can pick up delicious homemade pies, breads and even a latte if u cannot live without it! There is also a very good Maine Supply/fishing tackle store there.
We are looking forward to our next stay in Leiber Haven.

Room Tip: As far as we could see, all the cottages are right on the beach and only a few steps from the tranqu...

The apartment my husband & I stayed in was number 12 which was around to the side. We had planned to stay in #4 which had a water view but the owner, Dave, said he had made an error and the people in #4 were staying longer than he thought. It did not matter much to us as we stayed only one night and he was quite fair and gave us a nice discount and ice cream :-) . We enjoyed the beach early in the morning. It was so peaceful. The apartment was clean but could use a complete upgrade. However, the bed was comfortable and everything worked well.

Our family has been to Lieberhaven many times. Dave and his wife Kitty are friendly. The cabins are kept clean and comfortable. It's a very relaxing place right on the beach. We've stayed at some of the other places on the island (Rosario and Outlook Inn) and they don't come close to providing the experiences that you can have by staying at Lieberhaven!
