“About as relaxing as it gets”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We had the #5 tent/cabin for two nights and couldn't have been more pleased. I recommend requesting #5 because it is by itself unless tent campers are next door. It is just a little far from the bathhouse. That may also be the reason why we didn't have any tents next to us. There was a port-a-potty close by if needed in the middle of the night.

The showers were $.25 per 1.5 minute. I had never had to pay for a campground shower so that was new to me. The good thing was that the water was nice and warm the entire time.

One bundle of wood is provided. After that, you buy your own. Each night around 9:15, the resort lights a bonfire by the pier which is nice.

The resort has a wide selection of ice cream and other amenities in their resort store. The office staff couldn't be friendlier!

We first went there last year (July 2013) with our RV. we loved the place so much we came back (my wife and my 10 months old son) in July 2014 for a long week end. we rented the Cottage Madrona. Such a nice Cottage!! REALLY romantic: great view of the bay. off the main property but a path brings you right down the pier.

Room Tip: The Madrona Cottage is really quiet since off the main property. GREAT view of the water. Perfect fo...

Here is the capsulated version of our stay. First of all the location is right on the bay. Fire pit and picnic table are steps from the water. Gorgeous west view across the water make this a prime sunset location. Even the locals use an access road near the southern edge of the resort to watch the sunsets every evening.

For us, the cost was a stretch. Two days ran us 450.00+ Including our toy size dog which ran us 30.00 per night. The rustic accommodations with two queen beds was very comfortable and the kitchenette was a real plus.

We were able to cook meals in the cabin and there is a charcoal BBQ
available as well. The management takes care to place guests throughout the beachfront cabins which gives you some privacy, at least during the weekdays. The atmosphere would feel more crowded if placed with guests on both sides of us.

Our visit was very quiet. Very pleasant and we thoroughly enjoyed our days and evenings. It was great being able to have our doggie and cooking meals at the cabin was a real plus!

I don't know that we'd stay again due to the cost. But we don't regret our stay and it will be a special memory for us.

Room Tip: The farther down the row of cabins, the less traffic you have to deal with and the road has an exit...

West Beach has it all: from multi-bedroom cabins on the upper level with outrageous views to single-couple cabins on the beach below to furnished tent-cabins to RV sites with full hook-ups to rustic spaces for bring-your-own-everything campers. And it's all in a location looking west into the sunsets and just a few miles from the lively restaurants, pubs and stores of Eastsound village.

Come by car or come by boat, this resort also has docks and moorings for boats in their calm and peaceful bay, places for swimming (with a nearly rock-free bottom, very rare in these parts), and a small office/store/espresso bar/souvenir store for all the stuff you didn't bring with you. They also sell ice, sodas beer and wine.

Wifi, kayak rental (or maybe they're free for guests to use, but I did see kayaks!), free firewood are also available.

Especially nice: they manage to supply all this while keeping the woodsy, rustic feel of Washington water front. Great place for couples, families or groups of friends to meet up.

Stayed 2 nights in a standard beach front cottage. It was both very clean and very comfortable. There was complimentary firewood for use in the wood stove or beach front fire pit. Although I was very pleased with the features of the cottage, it's kitchen could use some updating and the wi fi connection speed could be improved.

This was our 4th time staying at West Beach and it was my kids choice for their birthday weekend . Stayed in cabin #9 this time for 3 nights . The sunsets are fantastic and shot some great pictures of the bald eagles . The wifi is new but is not very fast ....who needs Netflix when you can kick back and relax with a book or just enjoy the view . The resort cat is very friendly and was happy to spend the night with us . All the guests are very friendly . The Brown Bear Bakery in town is well worh stopping at . We will be back ....

Our Cabin #9 was spotless. We had our own fire pit overlooking the beach. Seals cruised back and forth about 50 yards from shore. We had planned on only staying one night but the sunset and fire on the beach was too awesome to pass another night.
The cabin had a microwave,refrigerator,coffee maker, stove and toaster. Stop at the IGA in Eastsound for breakfast items and enjoy the morning on the porch overlooking the Pacific.
The $199 was a little steep for the accommodation but the view was worth it. I will be back.
We went whale watching with http://www.outerislandx.com/WhaleWatching.php and these people love what they do. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Cabin 9 is towards the end of the property and has sits own fire pit right in front.
