We stayed 2 nights with a super deal from Travelzoo. Our room was in the lodge on the second floor. There was a living area on the main level as well as on the top floor. Our room was rather quaint but very cute & comfy. Bed was comfortable & high, like an old fashioned bed. Bathroom was well equipped, hair dryer, & coffee pot. There was a small refrigerator & microwave in the living room. We enjoyed the deck to enjoy the view & sunshine. There were lots of deer & bunnies to watch. The setting is very pretty with apple orchard & view of the bay. There’s also a great restaurant on property. It was a great place to stay to explore the fun island.

We stayed here for a couple nights. The room was very quiet but a little small. The electric fireplace was nice and the bed was very comfortable. They had everything you needed right there it the building with 8 rooms, including a nice reading relaxing area. The shower was just s 2x2' and the pressure was very light but enough. Dont plan on the hot tub because only a few jets were working and it wasn't very warm. I would stay here again

This inn is different with the self-check in as mentioned in many reviews. We stayed in a lodge room and in was a bit small but it was comfortable and had an electric fake fireplace for heat. It didn’t appear to have air conditioning. The shower had very little water pressure making it challenging to get all the soap out of my hair. We were on the top floor and I was impressed with how quiet it was. My biggest complaint and disappointment was in the hot tub. If you are in the Lodge you have a shared hot tub, which was no problem we were the only ones who used it. The problem was it was not hot and many of the jets were broken and did not move the water. The tub was maybe body temperature. If it had been any colder outside, we could not have used the tub at all. For the price the place charges for the eight rooms in the lodge alone (not counting the cabins), the tub needs to be replaced! Don’t think I would recommend or stay here again unless the hot tub was updated.

My boyfriend scored a TravelZoo deal for this property for us to celebrate a special occasion in January 2018. He made sure to book a cottage so we'd have our own hot tub right outside the cottage. A few days before our arrival, the property owner let us know our hot tub had broken down, so we'd need to use one that's shared with a larger lodge very close by. Okay - no big deal, but we did specifically pay extra for the self-enclosed cottage because it had its own hot tub. Upon arrival, we followed the instructions we'd been sent to get checked in, and went to investigate the shared hot tub. Sadly, it was not hot at all - barely lukewarm. For this time of year, it was completely unusable. We tried to contact someone from the property (the office is not staffed at this time of year), and received a couple of emails from the owner, who said he'd send someone to look at the hot tub. The next day we left for a day out, and when we came back, the thing was maybe a couple degrees warmer. Not even close to usable for chilly, damp January on the coast. This was disappointing and money down the drain.

The cottage itself was nicely appointed, clean and quiet. The parking space was right outside which made it convenient for loading/unloading. The cottage included a small kitchenette, which was helpful to keep drinks cold and prepare some basic food/snacks. We also had an eating area, couch, king bed, and full bathroom. We especially enjoyed the electric fireplace, as this boosted the coziness factor and kept the chill away!

Despite not seeing any of the property's employees during our 2-night stay, we did meet two very fluffy, VERY friendly and clean black and white cats that presumably live on the property. They were excellent hosts ;)

We stayed two nights during the last week of December when much of the island was quiet and many of the restaurants, including the restaurant on site, were closed for the season. We stayed in Room 7 on the upper floor of the lodge (stairs only – not a problem for us). Very clean. All the basics were provided. Rustic queen log bed with comfy mattress, beautiful cozy bed linen. The bathroom with a small shower was adequate. Strong wifi. Nice touches to our room included the gas fireplace, excellent blackout drapes, a small sitting area where we had a pretty window view of the large Inn property and the harbor in the distance, plus a small lantern for our evening stroll to the hot tub. From the moment of our arrival, we sensed a pretty much “help-yourself” vibe. Extra towels, blankets, coffee/tea condiments, reading books, etc were neatly organized in cupboards in the common area. The huge hot tub in the gazebo a few steps from the cabin didn’t come with instructions but it wasn’t complicated and we had a pleasant soak in privacy in spite of it being rather dated. Think glamping.

Only about 20 minutes from the ferry terminal, the resort felt a bit remote, maybe more so because of the super quiet post-Christmas week. We had to backtrack to the main road and then drive another 10 minutes to Eastsound or further on to Rosario where there were some restaurants open, but all the shops that were still open during this week seemed to close by 5 pm. We can imagine that in other seasons this place would be much livelier, especially since it's right by the Deer Harbor marina and the entire island is so scenic.

Room Tip: Upper rooms better but be aware there are no elevators
