The Deer Harbor Inn is a unique place to stay. We stayed for two nights, in one of the Log Cabin Lodge rooms, but never saw the people who run/own the place. When you arrive (between 4PM-9PM) all you do is go into the office and pick up a little bag, setting on a table, with your name on it. Inside the bag is the key to your room, maps of the island and two mints. We didn't know what to expect as there wasn't much info, about what amenities came with the room, on their website.
We brought breakfast stuff, ice chest and a hair dryer with us, but didn't need to. Every morning they provide two bowls of cereal, two bottles of milk, two bottles of orange juice, two hard boiled eggs, two English muffins, decaf and regular coffee, creamer, jam and butter.
In the room, though not mentioned on their website, is a small frig with freezer, a toaster, a coffee maker, hairdryer and flat screen TV. There is also an additional refrigerator in the common area both downstairs and upstairs.
The rooms themselves were very clean and the bed was very comfortable. All of the furniture is made of logs and goes well with the log cabin look of the building. The bathroom was very roomy with nice shower. They also provide shampoo, body wash and conditioner, soft absorbent towels, as well as a host of other bathroom amenities. For the ladies, the vanity is at least 6' long.
The upstairs rooms have a common outside deck that looks out over the property with a limited water view. WiFi is available at no cost. There is a restaurant on site. We spent our time on Orcas hiking in Moran State Park so we ate in East Sound on our way back due to the late hour. Friends of ours, that stayed at Deer Harbor the week after we did, ate at the restaurant and said that both the food and service were very good.
Overall, we were very pleased with the accommodations and would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to others. I gave "service" 5 stars even though we never saw anyone that works there because the room was cleaned and new supplies and food, for the next day, were there when we returned at the end of the day.
