We stayed here for 2 days during our honeymoon tour of the Pacific Northwest. When we arrived, Peter took us on a tour and explained where everything was and how everything worked. We stayed our first night in the Steller suite and the second in the Chickadee room (a scheduling snafu, which Peter & Helen remedied by giving us the suite at the same price as the Chickadee room). When we walked into our suite, there was a Congratulations! banner hanging over the bed, a nice touch.
The breakfasts were phenomenal. The gardens are beautiful. We enjoyed a private soak in the hot tub both nights (you sign up for 45-minute blocks). The second night, we spied a pack or raccoons by the tub (or they spied us). Very nice, welcoming place. We recommend it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This historic Craftsman Bungalow was built as a vacation hotel by a stone mason in 1907. In a later incarnation, colorful resident and steamship captain, "Cap" Ferris brought a baby orphaned kangaroo to live with him and his family. The locals dubbed the sprawling lodge the "Kangaroo House" Since then it has become a B&B and is the longest continually operating bed & breakfast in the San Juan Islands. We have 5 Rooms/Suites, all with Private Bathrooms, King or Queen beds and some with additional beds and DVD players/movies, Free WiFi, Garden Hot Tub, and an exceptional, filling breakfast made from scratch including wholesome, local fruits, meats, vegetables and herbs from Orcas Island's own farms and gardens. ... more less
