We enjoyed two nights at the Kingfish Inn - beautiful views, setting, location and comfortable room. We had a great meal at the Cafe, took walks to the marina and it is easy to drive to Eastsound and Mt Constitution. Oh, the service by Richard was fantastic.

We often say that the those who arrived early really knew where the views were. The Kingfish Inn Building (Circa 1902) was one of the first buildings in real-estate parlance most desirable West Sound. We agree, the setting sets it apart.

“Memories to last a lifetime”

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Kingfish Inn. We stayed in Suite #4 Spruce, and we were so delighted with the room. It exceeded our expectations. There was a beautiful hummingbird that would great us daily, and a Bald Eagle that landed in a tree right next door and stayed for a while. So spectacular. Very relaxing, the view is something we are still talking about.

Thank you for mentioning our friendly eagle. It hunts for breakfast on the beach in front and it is quite a treat to see him swooping after its prey.
Please come back to visit Orcas Island and Kingfish Inn again.

“Lovely spot on Orcas Island”
Reviewed 28 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The location, the charming rooms, the stellar view from the room and deck, and the wonderful restaurant made this a wonderful place to stay. Location was perfect for day trips kayaking and then just retiring to the room before heading downstairs for a wonderful dinner. So charming and relaxing.

They no longer serve breakfast and the fact that once you check into your room there is no room straightening that gets done (they do advise of these facts, which is helpful). Sometimes it nice to return to the room all straightened up and the bed made. Afterall, it's vacation. :-)

“Beautiful Getaway”
Reviewed 18 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Weather ended up being excellent for October. The room was nice with a beautiful view. Complimentary breakfast was cooked for us downstairs in the cafe every morning and was DELICIOUS! Kathy, our hostess was very nice and welcoming and had lots of suggestions for things to do on the island. Looking forward to staying here again :)

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us.
Kathy is still with us but she no longer cooks breakfast. She puts juices, yogurt, fruits and snacks in the individual refrigerators provided in the rooms. With just 4 rooms and guests going out on outings early or having many dietary constraints, we found only one couple out of four would come down to breakfast at the designated time. So, no cooked breakfasts. Kathy is happier and the guest, too, seem happy with all the extras we can provide in lieu of breakfast.

“Kingfish Inn is a dream!”

We had a fantastic stay at the Kingfish Inn. Our room was quiet and comfortable, had an amazing view of the water and fabulous personal amenities including an in-room keurig machine, complimentary breakfast in their restaurant and the most comfortable bed that gave us quality sleep. I'd recommend this sweet Inn to anyone looking for a relaxing "home away from home." We will definitely be back!

Did we mention that all our beds are extra thick NOVA Foam with gel-top. We replaced our very expensive sleep number bed with the same after many guests commented on how well they were sleeping. We agree with them.

“Lovely peaceful quaint”
Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

Kingfish inn looks like an old farmhouse, perched right on the road overlooking a peaceful harbor. Our room (Alder) was very spacious, with a private deck overlooking the harbor. We awoke each morning to the sound of gentle rain on the tin roof. We had a comfy queen bed with just the right amount of covers, and a moveable fan (much to the delight if my husband, who loves to sleep with air blowing on him; me, not so much!). Our bathroom was nice sized, small shower with good water pressure and very hot water. Keurig in the room for coffee and tea. There is a shared fridge in the hall to keep food. Breakfast is served at 9 in the morning in the lovely cafe on the first floor. It was hot and delicious, with all the coffee or tea you can drink. There is a great terrace, but weather kept us inside. The nights are very quiet. I could hear the man in the next room talking through the walls, and in the morning, a few trucks and cars drive by. Another great thing about the location is that it's very close to the ferry, so convenient to come and leave. The bigger town of Eastsound is an easy 10-15 minute drive from here. I liked staying here away from the crowds. We briefly met Richard, who was very nice and welcoming. You will have all the privacy one could desire on a romantic get away here. There is decent wifi, as well.

With our climate warming each year, all our inn rooms come with ceiling fan as well as the stand up fan. The ceiling fan is very quiet.

“One Particular (Quiet) Harbor”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Great rooms with terrific food in the restaurant. The harbor is quiet and little else is here, making for a quaint and quiet time to get away ... a fantastic place to walk down and just sit on the boat! Taxi cabs are sometimes difficult, so if you're hoping to hit the restaurants in East Sound, patience may be your key. Make sure to get reservations for your dinner. Depsite occupying 3 of the 4 rooms, they were not able to accommodate us for dinner on our first night.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review for us. Our staff at the West Sound Cafe work very hard at seating our guests at Kingfish Inn. However, the restaurant is small and reservations are strongly recommended. If you occupied 3 or the 4 rooms, you were probably in need of a larger table (of which we have just 2). We apologize that we were not able to accommodate you the first night. We hope you enjoyed your meal on the 2nd night.
