Our sale boat broke down off of Eastsound Orcas Island. We managed to sail it into the marina. Our plan was to spend the night on the boat, but when I saw the conditions of the bathrooms at the marina, I freaked out. My husband took me on a walk down the road to cool my temper down, when we spotted the Kingfish Inn. It was perfect. We called and the owner drove down, and rented us room number 4. The bed was big and comfy, the view was nice, and best of all it had a nice big, clean bathroom! The next morning, we were in a hurry to get to the ferry. The taxi service didn't have time to get us, and we were in a total jam. No problem - the owner drove us down between baking batches of muffins.
And, he did a very tasty speedy breakfast for us too. The experience was fantastic, and I would reccomend this inn to anyone.
O.K., I haven't stayed here so I cannot comment on the B&B accomodations, but if you really want a world-class cheeseburger that belongs in some sort of top national ranking of cheeseburgers, you will find it here at this charming little inn tucked away at the water's edge of Orcas Island. Am I out-of-bounds for giving such a review for a cheeseburger ? I think not, given the competition these days, and the fact that nearly every hotel, even the high-end ones, has now trotted out their own version of the once lowly burger in order to generate some buzz. These hotels believe that their burgers are indicative of the quality of the establishments within, as do I. But the difference at the Kingfish is that their cheeseburger is not cute, trendy, mixed with Fois Gras, or $15. It is simply classic, hand-made, and delicious. The rest of their food is good too.
