My husband and I have been staying at Otters Pond for well over 10 years now. We absolutely love Carl and Sue and the tranquil place they've created for people to stay on the magical Orcas Island. We've stayed in almost all of the rooms, but The Swan is our very favorite. This trip, we brought along two other couples....

Beautiful, quiet, immaculate, friendly accommodating hosts. Views of the pond on the property made me think of Walden, or a Monet painting. Linens were exceptionally comfortable. Easy parking in the shade. Close to Rosario Resort and Mt. Constitution. Loved the DUAL pedestal sinks with table in between. Would go back.

My wife, brother and sister-in-law stayed at this beautiful bed and breakfast during a recent stay on Orcas Island. This bed and breakfast is located on a lily pad filled pond with a great deal of bird activity. The bed and breakfast is very tastefully furnished and is spotlessly clean. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The four or...

A beautiful place and the hosts are very nice as long as you follow the rules to the letter. The food was great and loved visiting with the other guests and seeing where they are from. I feel the hosts are getting burnt out as I know they are trying to sell the place. Loved Orcas Island but doubt will...

Dear Readers, as innkeepers we know that an unfavorable (as well as a favorable) Trip Advisor review is very powerful. That being said, we can’t shirk our duties as innkeepers simply because a guest might not like what we have to say with respect to our house policies. We feel a responsibility to all of our guests to provide a...

Sue and Carl share their love of beautiful Orcas Island the best way they know how...in making sure every detail is perfect for their guests. Otter's Pond is teeming with migratory and resident birds, bald eagles, island rabbits, occasional raccoons and of course, otters, all visible right off the back deck. A deep, private hot tub offers peaceful respite...open the...

We can't say enough wonderful things about our stay at Otters Pond Bed and Breakfast on Orcas Island. Otters Pond is a beautifully appointed, beautifully situated, beautifully kept B&B on magical Orcas Island. Our room (Hummingbird Room) was lovely and the bed and linens were pure heaven - we slept the best we have in years. Our second-floor room had...

Rude, cold, condescending and very self-centered hosts. Believe me, there is plenty of rude treatment and unending rules to accommodate the HOSTS rather than the GUESTS at this B&B. The hosts only tolerate people if they can follow the rules designed to make the guests mold into the rigid environment they seem to need for themselves. I don't mind following...

We are very sorry you had such a miserable stay here. Your critique was centered, it seems to us, on personality differences and we know that we are not for everybody as much as we try to be. Had we known that you were so unhappy we would have offered to find you another place to stay without additional cost...

We had a truly outstanding time at Otter's Pond. Sue and Carl are hospitable, interesting, and very helpful. The breakfast is stellar. The Swan room is clean, homey, and comfortable, with plenty of room to hand around in if you'd rather be private. Lots of birds around -- a bald eagle even swooped around the pond while we were eating,...

My new fiance and I recently got engaged and decided to integrate Otters Pond into the engagement. Sue and Carl were more than hospitable, and created a perfect experience. We have been there twice now and look forward to returning again soon! We highly recommend!
