We arrived on Orcas Island just as the tourist season ended in October, 2009 and spent two wonderful nights at Kangaroo House. And, I have to admit, it was one of the best stays we have ever had at a B&B.
The beautiful, early 1900's architectual setting, the coziness of the large common area, the amazing hospitality of the hosts and the unforgetable breakfasts blended seemlessly with the natural beauty of Orcas Island and allowed us to enjoy a most memorable trip to the San Juan Islands.
We found the hosts friendly and helpful when we had questions. We sensed they knew this was "our" getaway and did not try to steer us in a particular direction with one exception... the amazing outdoor hot tub located away from the main house. Oh Yeah!
We research out trips and lodging in an attempt to find comfortable, no pressure, quiet, beautiful settings with professional hosts. We definitely found that combination at Kangaroo House. And yes, you will see us there again!
- 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
