For 25 years, our family has gone to Block Island off my home state of Rhode Island. We did it this year and loved it. But, we had read about the beauty of the San Juan Islands, off the coast of Washington State and bordering British Columbia.
My wife and I went sans children to the beautiful island of Orcas. It was wonderful as was the Kingfish Inn where we stayed. The room was a mini-suite and the view of the harbor below was spectacular. Each day they served a wonderful breakfast which is for the handful of people lucky enough to stay at the Inn.
At night, they have a fine but moderately priced restaurant that is open to the public. Interestingly, lots of locals seem to eat there which is always a good sign.
Orcas is a quiet place but if you need a rest and like hiking and natural beauty it is a fabulous spot and we strongly recommend The Kingfish Inn as a place to stay.
