Rooms & Rates

Ferry across the Puget Sound past a chain of smaller islands and you’ll wind up on Orcas Island -- the largest and “the most beautiful” (Frommer's) of the San Juan Islands.

Built in 1904, the charming Victorian-style Orcas Hotel sits atop one of the island’s most enviable locations, right at the island’s doorstep above the ferry landing. Graced with beautiful marina views and only 12 guest rooms, the hotel is the ideal spot to slow things down and take in the beauty of the landscape and stunning shoreline. Each room is decorated with antique furnishings and comes with a unique layout -- some have balconies, Jacuzzi tubs or water views. At the on-site restaurant, Octavia’s Bistro, guests can enjoy Pacific Northwest fare with fresh seafood picks.

The highlight of any trip to Orcas is a visit to Moran State Park and a hike up the tallest peak in the islands, Mount Constitution, for 360-degree views from Seattle to Canada. The park is a 30-minute drive from the hotel, and there’s a full day’s worth of activities once you get there -- 30 miles of hiking trails full of lakes and waterfalls. Other must-do activities on the island include whale watching, biplane rides, kayaking, horseback riding and a visit to the quaint village of Eastsound and its little shops and art galleries.

Close to the ferry and a historic feel in an older building. Dinner was very good.

It is old and needs upgrading and polish. Clarify what you want before choosing this hotel...i.e. tv or no, view, deck dvd, bath in the room (including shower). All rooms are different.

Other Comments
Our room had a large jetted tub, but there was soap film on it to the point I wouldn't use it. No shower in the room, though there was a hose sprayer I could wash my hair with over the side of tub. For the most part we really enjoyed ourselves, the view, and friendly staff.
