Orcas Island

4.8 on August 20, 2013

Wonderful old house, fantastic large front porch, secluded hot tub tucked away in the back garden. When we arrived there was a deer in the driveway. Jill was away but Charles was very helpful and made a great breakfast. The 2nd morning we had to catch a ferry early so they fixed us a fantastic "picnic" breakfast that was ready for us the next morning in the guest fridge. Charles recommended restaurants and even called for reservations. He also gave us great advice about hiking at Mt. Constitution. We had a wonderful time.


Magical weekend on Orcas

My boyfriend and I checked in for a recuperation weekend at the Kangaroo House. We checked out two days later as fiances! We stayed in the Nuthatch Room which was adorable and comfortable and warm. Jill and Charles were fabulous hosts and created two really delicious breakfasts while we were there. We spent our evenings reading, drinking cocoa, and playing scrabble by the fireplace and enjoying the awesome garden hot tub. So relaxing. Just what we needed.


very restful

My wife and I had the pleasure to stay here recently and were very happy. Charles and Jill are very gracious hosts and there inn is beautiful. One evening, instead of going out to a restaurant, we bought grocery store sandwiches, salads, and wine. We headed just north of the inn and ate dinner alone on the beach watching the most beautiful sunset ever. Will certainly stay there again.


A charming Orcas Island original!

We'd planned to stay two nights, but when my husband got home and said he wanted to go RIGHT NOW, Charles was more than willing to accommodate us for a third. The rooms (we ended up staying in two) were beautiful and quiet for sleeping, the beds comfortable, and the bathrooms we sparkling clean. I would've been happy with just that, but breakfast at KH is amazing--we had all sorts of fresh, homemade, delicious food! Pancakes, Alsatian roastie, a root-vegetable fritatta-thing--everything fabulous and made with attention to detail that borders on meticulous. Furthermore, Charles and Jill are warm, welcoming, and gracious. They're great conversationalists as well as top-notch gardeners and chefs. Truly lovely people; we can't wait to come back!


Great for a weekend or a week!

Gracious host, close by if we needed anything but never in the way. Seemed knowledgeable about the island, a good source of information for first-timers. Breakfasts were delicious!
