We stayed in the Swan room upstairs for two nights and found our stay at Otters Pond simply heavenly. Our gracious hosts Sue and Carl checked us in after hours, fuss-free, and made us feel right at home. Otters Pond is such a beautiful property, located in the woods right next to a pond. The ground floor has an open...

The 5 course breakfast at this Bed and Breakfast was amazing. We were more and more impressed each day. She was very accommodating with my husband's Celiac and gluten free requirement. They were great hosts and very helpful with our sightseeing plans and restaurant reservations. Cell phone coverage is gone by the time you get to the B&B, but the...

First if all, this is my second review of Otters Pond. I think my first one was done over 10 years ago. We have stayed at Otters Pond a dozen times, I'm sure. Over the years, we have considered the hosts, Carl and Sue, to be our friends, and we do enjoy returning, in part, to see them again and...

It's a beautiful B&B in the woods of Orcas Island. The hosts have a plan for how everything works and you'll be very happy here if you go along with the plan. The rooms are beautifully decorated and perfectly clean. Breakfast was a gourmet delight with the best granola I have ever tasted followed by a frittata that was also...

Thank you for your kind review. We enjoyed your stay with us; we have been told by other innkeepers that we have the best guests; we couldn't agree more! We love sharing our favorite things to do with our guests and helping with dinner reservations when we can. Our great restaurants can be quite busy so we encourage our guest...

The hosts have thought of everything. We stay in B&Bs all over the world and can truly say that this place is very well managed and run by Carl and Sue. A lovely setting on a huge pond filled with lilies. Wine is served around 4 pm. Hot tub is available --even a swim suit for those of us who...

First of all let me explain; Orcas Island is situated in theSan Juan islands off the coast of the state of Washington in the Pacific Northwest. We chose to drive up to Anacordes, WA & drive on to a Washington State Ferry... This was so exciting! We saw an Orca on our way. We drove off the ferry at the...

I had high expectations for this place. While the place is beautiful, the atmosphere was very unwelcoming. We stayed one night and enjoyed the wonderful breakfast but felt the hosts to be a bit overbearing. We were told we didn't have to lock our bedroom door and so we didn't only to come back after dinner to a locked room...

We arrived on Orcas Island with no solid plans. Decided we wanted to take a whale watch tour, so we had to change our ferry reservation, which put us on the island overnight. We had no reservations any where. We contacted the chamber of Commerce and they gave us a small list of available accommodations. We called Otters Pond, and...

We were completely delighted with Otters Pond. The bird-watching was so relaxing, the atmosphere peaceful, the company enjoyable, and the breakfasts beyond imagination. The innkeepers devote attention to every detail. Days after our stay, I find myself wondering what savory breakfast I am missing at Otters Pond.
