“Clean, Quiet, Roomy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2011

Two nights was not enough to spend in this area. The only problem with the check in process was they didn't tell us about the complimentary breakfast, not that we needed it, but it would have been nice to know. Our room had a kitchen, table for 4, nice sized deck and a murphy bed. The bed was very comfortable and one lifted it made the room seem very large. We had a great view of the Rosario Resort and the bay on the water. Orcas Island is very beautiful and easy to get around, we just wish we had more time once we got there.

GREAT hotel. We loved waking up to the spectacular views of the ocean and Orcas Island from our room balcony (which was a basic room). The staff was very courteous in helping us with our late check in and giving us recommendations to the activities on the island. The continental breakfast was basic, but it's free and the coffee was great! The location was great: 5 minute walk to the Marina for kayak rentals, 10 minute walk to the Roasario mansion, and a 5 minute drive to Moran State Park. The room was SUPER clean, cleaner than the room we stayed in at the Westin in Seattle. We also had a welcome surprise during the afternoon when 2 does came by our balcony to say hello. Probably the only con was the furniture and bed covers were a little dated, BUT given the nightly rate and all the other amenities, Cascade Harbor was quite a gem. Thank you Cascade Harbor for a great stay at Orcas Island. We hope to visit you again in the future...

My mother, father and husband stayed at the Cascade Harbor Inn over the July 4th weekend, and were thrilled we did...as we always are (we've stayed there probably no less than a dozen times over the last 10-15 years). This is just a great hotel. The staff are super friendly and very accomodating of special requests and offer to help in whatever above-and-beyond way that they can. We always stay in their "suite" setup as we have either traveled as 2 couples (my parents and my husband this time), or as a family (as in the past with my parents and sister), and it is terrific. They have a full kitchen (you could easily cook whatever meal you want), 2 balconies (both with views that you would EASILY pay double for elsewhere in the world), a fireplace (stocked with a new 3 hr log every day as part of housekeeping), couch, dinner table and tv. Now, keep in mind that this isn't a 5 star resort...so while everything is cozy, comfortable and, I think, really spectacular, this isn't a sleek/modern boutique hotel with million dollar furnishings...the furnishings are like I said, cozy... and perfect for the environment they are in...you didn't come to Orcas to be in a perfectly manicured environment, after all; it's the glory of nature and the water and the park...and this place fits perfectly. I would recommend this to anyone.
Other terrific benefits of the Cascade Harbor Inn are that it is less than 10 minutes from:
- Eastsound (the best little "ocean-side" village...great restaurants/stores/organic food market)
- Cafe Olga - terrific restaurant about 10 min. south of the Inn.
- Moran State Park - best views in the world from the top of Mt. Constitution, and able to hike straight onto the trails from behind the Inn - no parking fees that way!
- Whale watching tours - leave right from the Bay. You can walk from your room to the boat in about 3 minutes.
- Terrific restaurant at Rosario Resort (get the benefits of the resort - like the swimming pool, too! - within 5 min. walking distance without paying resort prices).

I read some of the other reviews and wanted to ensure people knew how terrific this place is. Our family has been coming for well over a decade, and when we have kids, I will definitely be taking my kids, too.

Stayed here for one night over the Memorial Day weekend. Other hotels/bed & breakfasts in the area were charging an arm and a leg or required a 2 or 3 night minimum stay. From the minute I called, Deb with the front desk was very helpful and booked us right in. We drove from Hoh Rainforest that afternoon and were afraid we wouldn't make it to the ferry on time to get over to Orcas so when I called Deb she told me that she would leave our room key in an envelope taped to the front door desk. She also advised that we should grab a bite to eat in Eastsound which is the city with the restaurants and bars on the island, being that nothing would be open right near the hotel.

The room was clean and beds were comfy but my favorite part was the view from the balcony, it was beautiful. This hotel was a perfect stay and very convenient to the ferry dock and where we had to catch the boat for our whale watching tour in the morning!!! Would definitely stay here again.

I was looking for a reasonably priced room with a waterfront view. My husband and I booked a room with two queen beds. It had a balcony with a view of the harbor and hills beyond--lovely. The room was clean, Rhonda from the office couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The room was only $104 a night--the best deal I found on the island. A little deer visited us in the evening by our balcony, and we gave him pieces of organic nectarine, which he loved! The pictures on the website are accurate.

Private balcony overlooking a quiet harbor...deers stopped by in the afternoon! The car ferries to get here is quite fun as well. Friendly staff and beautiful scenery - who could ask for more?

For the price, probably hard to beat considering each room has a view of Cascade Harbor and nearby historic Rosario Resort (a must-see mansion even if you aren't staying there!), and you are very near the entrance to Moran State Park. The Inn is out of the way. You are 20-25 minutes from the ferry landing and about half that to Eastsound Village where your primary sources of food/grocery are located. The rooms are very basic, could probably use some modernizing. There is WiFi, but it's a weak signal. Same for cell phone coverage. But you are warned, so don't complain. This isn't the city. You are in a forest, on an island afterall. Some of the TV channels also had a hard time staying on. I stayed in the low season so there wasn't hardly anyone there and the only real sounds came from birds or the pouring rain one night. But I can see where others might have complained about neighbors as the walls do seem thin. On the plus side, I arrived early and since I gave an approximate arrival time my room was ready when I checked in three hours before the 4 p.m. check-in time. If you plan to see a lot of Orcas Island, this is an out-of-the-way location. But if you go with having an adventure in mind, just allow for some extra driving time and you'll be good.
