Quaint Room at the Inn w/ a Shared Grill Area & Free WiFi - Walk to Marina/Beach

Comfortable and offering an ideal Orcas Island location, this room at the Deer Harbor Inn will show you the many reasons why the San Juan Islands are so special. This upstairs room at the Inn features an electric fireplace, a private bathroom, and all sorts of natural wood details - the perfect escape for a couple in search of relaxation. Throughout the rest of the Inn, you'll have access to wonderful common spaces on the five-acre grounds, including a grilling and picnic area, a deck, as well as inviting indoor sitting areas on both the upper and lower floors.

What's nearby:
The Deer Harbor Inn is a five-acre property, frequented by bald eagles and deer and surrounded by apple orchards, on the serene west side of Orcas Island. You'll be an easy eight-mile drive from the island's ferry terminal, where you can board regular sailings to Anacortes, Friday Harbor, Lopez Island, and Shaw Island. Within walking distance, you'll find the on-site Deer Harbor Restaurant, a public beach, a kayaking park, the Deer Harbor Marina, and several whale-watching trails. If you're interested in exploring the island's many beauties, head two miles north to hike Turtleback Mountain, pop in and out of the shops in downtown Eastsound 10 miles northeast, and admire the incredible view from the summit of Mt. Constitution in Moran State Park 14 miles east.

Bed was comfortable. It would had almost been great if the coffee maker wasn't gross, and they spent a little more money on not ancient cheap coffee and tea. The only drinking water was the heavily treated water out of the bathroom sink - ordering a 5 gallon drinking water dispenser could be a good solution. Microwaves are randomly distributed around the lodge, maybe getting some new microwaves that weren't 20 years old and worked better. Location was nice, but improving some of the little things would make this a great place to stay.
Manager response:
Hi Adam. Thank you for your review. We're happy to hear that you found the bed comfortable. We apologize that you found the coffee pot dirty. We wish you had reached out to let us know as we gladly would have addressed that for you. We will be sure to pass along your comments about the water and microwaves to the appropriate people. Thank you for staying with us. We hope that you'll return for another visit in the future.

A great stay for the price, and the staff was kind and helpful! Thanks for a great time!
Desiree F. Oct 2022
We only stayed one night here, but it was nice. We got her in the afternoon/evening (because check in is 4pm). It is kind of a drive to get to anything (coffee, town, the brewery, etc.) except the barbecue place that is on the property or the pizza place just down the street. We had dinner at the barbecue place there and it is well worth it. The lodge was nice, I’m unsure how many individual rooms it has but there were several on both floors. After we got settled into the room, I was disappointed to learn that I could hear the conversation of my neighboring room as well as cars pulling in outside, and the conversations of the occupants of the cars that parked. If you are a light sleeper, this is not for you, you can hear most of the goings on within the house.
Manager response:
Desiree, thank you for sharing your experience, we're pleased you thought our home was nice and that you enjoyed the area. We're sorry for the noise disruptions you encountered and have shared your comments with the local manager who assured us they have relayed them to the Inn owners so improvements can be made. We understand that with very little noise coming from traffic, other noises might seem more noticeable, but we didn't realize hearing other guests was so pronounced and we apologize for the inconvenience. We enjoyed having you as our guest and we hope to host you again.

The Deer Harbor Inn was clean, had the amenities that we needed, and had nice common areas. Everything worked fine. The reasons for the 3-star rating is that 1) when we arrived the window in our room was open and the screen was bent, we had to kill several black flies; 2) given other places that we have stayed, we considered the cost of the room to be on the high end.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Susan. We apologize for the issues and appreciate the feedback as a means to improve. Thank you!

Quiet, peaceful, attended to little things (blackberries in a wine glass) Next to Mathew’s BBQ- yum
Robert M. Aug 2022
The room was great but the driveways are not very Motorcycle friendly. It's not the gravel it's the HOLES. OTHERWISE it was wonderful.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Robert, we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We apologize for any inconvenience the driveway caused you during your visit. We appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention so that we can work to improve the driveway for future guest. We've passed your feedback to our property manager to address with the appropriate parties. We welcome your feedback and hope to host you again.

Deer Harbor Inn is quite a ways from Eastsound ,but it is close to a lovely marina and there is a daily BBQ off the grounds offered that was very tasty. We had a difficult time getting into our room. As an older couple we were not familiar with the lock box concept of the security box, and the pin given would not open the door. Our phones had no cell service, and created a problem for us, until another tennant lent us theirs. The room was clean, nice amenities, but would have been perfect with A/C for later summer heat. Also , a little impractical having no attendant on the premises to contact. All in all, we enjoyed our stay.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Joanne. We are very sorry for the inconvenience you experienced with the lock during your stay. We are in the process of upgrading the locks to easy-to-use push-button instead locks instead of the old lock boxes. Please know that your feedback is essential, and we have passed your comments along to our local manager for review. We truly hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future.

Room was very clean and cool at night.
Shelly C. Jun 2022
We loved the serene setting where this property is located, but the room itself lacked in appeal. Utilitarian, small and cramped, with a mattress that was overly soft. With the windows open for air circulation it's actually pretty noisy, and we heard lots of noise from the other lodgers coming in and out of the front door and from other rooms. This room is fine if you are on a budget, but we will not choose this one again. The best feature: room-darkening curtains.
Manager response:
Hello, Shelly. We sincerely apologize for any issues encountered with the neighbors and appreciate your adherence to our Good Neighbor Policy. While we can't control what other residents do in their own homes, there is a noise ordinance with quiet hours. We encourage guests that need assistance to reach out to the local authorities. We make every effort to present clear, accurate descriptions of our homes in order for guests to make informed decisions on their rental choices. We encourage guests to reach out with any questions or concerns prior to booking, as we are happy to help. We look forward to hosting you again soon!

The room was clean, the cabin was cute, and it was a good value. I gave 3 stars because the bed was bowed in so we were rolling into the middle all night.
Manager response:
Allison, thank you for your review, we appreciate you taking the time to provide us with your valuable feedback. While we understand that sleeping preferences vary widely, we are sorry to hear that the bed did not provide for a comfortable night of rest. We have passed this feedback on to the house manager for review. We look forward to hosting you again!

The room is as pictured and is comfortable. The price and location are great. Check out the BBQ restaurant neighbor and the Turtleback Mountain preserve hiking trails. The only drawback is that the building is a little noisy--even with polite neighbors.
Melvin A. Sep 2021
Very clean, quiet room. Only problem we don’t watch tv for two days because not easy to use it. We never found how to watch the regular channels.
Thien P. Aug 2021
