Our daughter bought a stay via "Living Social" and gave it to us for my wife's birthday present. The Living Social description gave us one set of expectations but reality gave us another. At first glace we thought we wouldn't like it because it is very plain and far away from main centers on Orcas Island. However once we started looking around we found that we liked it more and more. It's rustic, it's far away from any sort of busy life, it's way out in the country and it didn't take long to appreciate that. It's an easy drive to the town of Eastsound which is a typical island touristy sort of town with lots of little shops to browse in. If you stay in the lodge don't expect a TV in your room, there's only a small 19" tube tv on the 2nd floor for everyone to share. And share they will because the rooms don't have any sound insulation at all. But the rooms have a very nice electric faux fireplace, a large comfy bed, good sized bathroom. Treats were left out on the dresser for us, 2 box lunches with great smoked salmon, trail mix, apples, water and a few small chocolates. A nice bottle of wine plus some cheese and crackers were a nice touch. There was also a small breakfast basket with bananas, blueberry muffins, orange juice. We didn't try the restaurant or spa but heard very good reviews from other guests.
If you want fancy, up to date resort type of place with all the bells and whistles then this isn't your kind of place. But if you're looking for somewhere rustic, relaxing, and a great place to get away from it all you won't be disappointed. We'll be back!
