“Great Choice!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Beautiful area. Great location overlooking the water. Excellent service like you used to get years ago. Thanks for kicking our trip off right! Good choice if heading to San J uans but also good for relaxing get-a-way to scenic Anacortes

Salutations LynninWashington, I completely agree with you the Anacortes scenery is simply awe inspiring. Many of our guests find they like to take an extra day and stay here on their return from the San Juan Islands before continuing on to Sea-Tac or their final destinations. I hope to see you on the return trip as well!

We were scheduled for an early ferry departure and Ship Harbor Inn, true to its name, is perfectly situated to get to the ferry on time. The view was beautiful and the room quite clean. I left my contoured pillow (not a cheap pillow) in the room. We emailed them and they said they would mail it to my home address. And they did; just as they promised. I have unfortunately left pillows in hotels enough times to know that getting them returned is rare indeed.

Hi Lynette C! Catching those early ferries can be quite the scramble, at least you were close to it. I'm happy you were able to catch your ferry and elated we were able to get your pillow back to you! I hope we see you in your future travels.

If you wish to catch the early morning ship,
And you don't mind the shape of the bill,
It's the perfect place.

The people were friendly, breakfast was good, rooms were clean with nice views, however the prices are steep in high season. We very much enjoyed the proximity to the ferry.

Hello Bella1933, It looks like you were able to take advantage of how close we are to the Washington State Ferries, being only about a 15 minute walk from the ferry terminal the Ship Harbor Inn is the perfect stop for a nights rest before you head over to the islands but many actually use our hotel as a staging ground and just walk on without having to bring a vehicle. Prices do vary depending on the time of year but we offer many discounts and will always work with a guest to make sure we find something suited for both your budget and needs. I can't wait to see you again next visit!

We stayed in cabin 9 for a long weekend. Beautiful colors inside, nice large front room, kitchenette with all utensils and appliances for morning coffee and such. An added bonus, beautiful patio area with fireplace and lots of tables for sitting out late at night, enjoying the beautiful scenery, even saw a couple dear meandering through valley below property.As this property is aways out of downtown, it may not be practical for travelers with out a vehicle but definately a great pick if you want to be out of the hustle and bustle of Anacortes, but still only a few minutes back in to town.Small breakfast available with your room rate. A beautiful property!

Greetings Powellspartyof2! I'm glad you liked the cabin, with a variety of styles they are the perfect place to regroup after traveling. Many of our guests like to pick up groceries in town and cook out on the cabin's private deck using one of our portable grills. All of our cabins enjoy a water view too so that makes for a great way to spend an evening. If you are traveling without a vehicle we offer many on-site Amenities such as, Full Organic Espresso Bar, Bistro Menu, Full Service Bar and we have many local taxi and shuttle services. We hope to have you again on your next trip!

We had #15 - cabin on the hill. It is set above the other rooms, a little nearer the road - but the view is amazing. This cabin has a kitchen, so we popped in to town and grabbed supplies. We grilled a steak and then enjoyed an evening cocktail on the deck.....as the sun was beginning to set we headed back to our room....we were greeted by deer coming out to graze on the lawn around the grounds. What a calming and restful place! They serve some food & drink at the office, and there is a breakfast area, but we were happy to eat in our little cabin and enjoy the view of the bay & ferries!

Hello Deb S! Those pictures are amazing I’m glad you got to see some of the local wildlife and right outside your cabin too! The privacy is the main advantage of that hilltop cabin one of my favorite rooms however if you want something with more frills next time we have a King Suite right below it with a Jetted tub, dual headed shower, fireplace and private deck you can enjoy luxury without the price tag.
With Kitchenette’s in many rooms and a Brand New 60,000 BTU grill we love it when guests bring food they can cook and then enjoy out of their private deck or our 70x30 public one. Glad you enjoyed and we hope to see you next time!

We just walked by this place when we had 2 hours before our ferry to Orcas. It's not obvious as a place to eat, but they have a delicious menu of salads, sandwiches, soups and appetizers. Great wine and beer and a cute outdoor patio where we sat with our dog too. Such lovely owners and high quality food and drinks. We couldn't have scripted a better pre-ferry meal. Go!

This hotel provides outstanding customer service and convenience. It's located close to the ferry terminal, airport and Flounder Bay Marina, which makes it an excellent place to begin or wind down vacation or travel plans in the San Juan Islands.

The property offers some on site food, coffee, and beverage services. A continental breakfast us usually included as part of your stay, and it is a short - 5 to 10 minute drive from downtown shops, eateries and other businesses.

Our room was located on the 1st floor of the main building, w/ an ample lawn just beyond the back patio. We enjoyed spending a few hours sitting and enjoying the favorbale weather and view of the terminal. Our small dog enjoyed it too.

This site offers rooms for travelers w/ pets. Be sure to confirm that your reservation includes your pet before arriving as not all rooms will allow for them. I'd also suspect that other rooms offer better views. This hotel sits on a side hill slope and different rooms will definitely offer better views of the ferry terminal and surrounding areas.

The location and rooms are pretty quiet.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room in the main building or specify a request for a view or pet friendly roo...

Wow! Thank you for the kind words Keb1959, I’m glad we were able to make your stay one to remember, I’m glad your family and puppy were able to get some use out of our lawn, we just finished doing some work on that not too long ago and it now runs the entire length of the main hotel, People with pets love to be able to walk right out of their room door and onto the lawn area. We also have pet friendly rooms upstairs if you prefer the higher vantage point to enjoy the view however some are kept pet free for our guests with allergies. Next time you are planning a trip out here give us a call!
