We selected the Bird Rock Hotel because it was only a block from our kayaking trip pickup location and ferry dock. The staff was pleasant. It was a little pricey at $200 a night for the Whidby room, but the amenities were very nice. The robes supplied were incredibly soft. The shampoos and lotions were locally made. We took advantage of the one-speed bikes (with wide, old-fashioned comfortable seats) for a lovely five mile ride around the peninsula and enjoyed the welcome cookies and lemonade on our return. A nice breakfast launched us on our way.
Watch out for the corner posts that rise about eight inches at the foot of the bed. You can easily smack your leg on them.
Earplugs were provided, but we did not use them and really didn't feel that we needed to with the location of our room. There was some early morning noise around sunrise, but it wasn't too much of a problem for us.
