It was wonderful!

We would definitely return to this charming B & B. we loved the meadow view room, loved the private porch, loved the breakfast, loved the location, even though a drive from town, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Cozy Bed & Breakfast

Beautiful place to visit

Great Island, Good B&B

We really enjoyed our stay on Orcas Island. The Turtleback Farm Inn was clean, the views spectacular, the hosts were sweet & very informative, and the breakfasts delicious. Our only complaint is that the old house had a water pressure pump that would activate (loudly) at various hours day/night. Maybe it was only loud in our room, but it was fairly distracting the first night. Once we knew what it was and to expect it, the second night was more relaxing.

Fabulous rooms, great food, great hosts!

The host and hostess helped us with dinner plans, recreation plans and provided a fabulous healthy and delicious breakfast despite our many allergies. They did all this with good humor and good will. Our favorite place to stay! We love the orchard house!

Beautiful place hidden away from everything

Turtleback Inn far exceeded our expectations. Our room was beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean. The staff was friendly and helpful but not intrusive. Mac, the patio dog, was darling. And breakfast was the best meal we had on the Island.

Gorgeous location, friendly and helpful staff, amazing natural environment. Very, very special place. I would return and would recommend to friends. The staff was accommodating of special dietary needs. We stayed in the Meadow View room for three nights in July.

Pleasant stay at Turtleback!

My sister and I stayed in the Garden Room late July 2012 for a friend's wedding. Samantha was helpful without being cloying; the food was delicious; the grounds breathtaking. Definitely a great place to stay on beautiful Orcas Island.

Wonderful Inn, Best on Orcas Island!

Best inn! Must go here. Best in the San Juan Islands!

ahhh.......just what we needed

We came to Orcas for a wedding and wished we had a few more days to unwind and relax at Turtleback Farm. It is such a charming B&B and we loved opening up our patio door and windows and listening to the birds chirping and sheep talking. Susan is a great resource on where to eat and what to do in town (definitely recommend dinner at New Leaf Cafe) and breakfast was delicious!
