The venue is located at very nice and quiet spot in Orcas Island. Needs update both the rooms and the whole premises. They´re doing some repairs on the draining system but still I´m afraid they still have a long way to run.
Rooms: 3/5 The pictures you can see in the website with the balcony and the bay as a landscape are true, but only that. I mean, the bay view is amazing but the room still needs update, for example the carpet or the bathroom. They have the sink out of the shower/toilet room which is nice but don´t forget to grab a towel from inside the shower room if you decide to wash your hands as there is no towels there (disappointing if somebody is having a shower while you´re using the sink.
Restaurant: 3.5/5 Nice, great service but it looks pricy; however I have the feeling that it´s below the average of this island for this category of restaurants. Food is good, seafood is excellent and the menu is nice. However the brunch looked to me very poor, both quality (the mashed potatoes were disgusting) and presentation. The lady who was our server at the brunch time (no other servers were there) was very kind but lack of professionalism (slow, didn´t refill coffee, forgot stuff, misunderstood the order, etc).
Spa: The fitness center is small but enough for some work out. The machines are outdated too. The jacuzzy is ok but lack of coziness. They are remodeling the indoor pool and it looks like it will be very nice. Don´t expect at all an luxury Asian-looking spa.
What they call the Mansion is worth a visit. A building of the 1920´s when Orcas Island started to receive "excursionists" or tourists. There is a museum on the second level with a lot of artifacts and pictures of those times. I spent easily 1,5h strolling and wandering that floor enjoying a lot.
