“Lovely and hospitable”
Reviewed 30 August 2012

Otters Pond Bed and Breakfast was a complete delight: located on a magical pond, run by friendly and efficient owners Sue and Carl, this bed and breakfast came with a scrumptous breakfast, the chirps of feeding birds and a soothing jacuzzi. Sue and Carl are encyclopedias of the myraid offerings of orcas island. Otters Pond is near the entrance of Moran State Park, which is a must see, with waterfalls, serene lakes and a magnificent 360-degree view of the surrounding san juan islands and distant mountain ranges. With our recent visit, this b and b climbed near the top of my list of all-time favorites.

Room Tip: Our little chickadee room was quiet and had an excellent view of the pond.

The breakfasts were outstanding in quality and also healthy. The location was quiet and serene. Carl and Sue were friendly,helpful and provided the perfect environment for the quiet,peaceful surroundings. The island provides something for everyone and the hosts are experts on the activities. We would definitely return and bring friends/family.

While on our honeymoon at Orcas Island, my wife and I stayed at the Otters Pond Bed and Breakfast. It was the perfect place for our getaway! In addition to offering a quiet and beautiful location for guests, Carl and Sue provide delicious five-course breakfasts and know the best restaurants and sightseeing opportunities on the island. We took their advice every time, including some recommendations for our brief visit to Seattle, and never regretted anything they suggested. They are the ultimate hosts. By the way, we were so enamored with the food served by Carl and Sue that my wife purchased the B&B's cookbook. If you are looking for a tranquil and scenic setting for your next vacation, we highly recommend this wonderful B&B.

On a quick trip up to Orcas Island, I found myself the only room left on the island and it was at Otters Pond. I sure did luck out on this one! Sue and Carl and so generous and kind, making you feel right at home at their bed and breakfast. The rooms are comfortable and offer a peace, quiet and a perfect getaway. The couple knows the ins and outs of the island and is more than willing to share the unlimited number of things to enjoy while visiting Orcas Island. The beds are large, soft sheets and everything is clean and tidy. Each room has its own bathroom and mine even had an old claw foot bathtub! How cute! The deck is set overlooking Otters pond and coffee is ready after the sun rises over the island. If you are looking for a perfect place to stay for a long weekend, this is it! My cell phone did not work so this provided a bit of peace, but it also helped that the internet was hooked up just down the hall just in case I “needed” it. Book early as this place is a hot spot and the food is fantastic! No cereal here-a 5 course delicious breakfast every morning. Amazing!

Room Tip: Book early and bring an eye mask if you travel in the summer. The sun is bright!

Otter Pond B&B sits on a lovely piece of property on Orcas Island in Washington. The grounds are very pretty with a large pond featuring water lilies and many birds flying in and out of the yard. Guests are not allowed to venture out into the pond area, but it is pretty to look at from the main house deck and the individual rooms. The owners are very nice people who try hard to make their guests feel comfortable; rooms are extremely clean with exceptionally comfortable beds, cozy robes and a nice hot tub looking out over the pond. There is a delicious breakfast served every morning in a formal sit down style. Shoes are not allowed inside and no eating in the rooms. If this all sounds good to you - check it out as it really is a very pretty place to stay on Orcas Island.
