An Inn with personality? Choosing to live on an island in the middle of the Salish Sea requires a certain degree of individuality and, let’s say, creativity. We’ve used these qualities to influence how we’ve decorated our inn: from the colored glass chips in the stone floor of our common area to the eclectic décor of the Salal Room, from the mingling of hand crafted log and traditional furniture to the rustic hand loom used as wall art. Our diverse decorating doesn’t mean we have forgotten guest comfort: private hot tubs, Gilchrest and Soames amenities, free Wi-Fi and satellite TV. Breakfast is prepared fresh every morning and always includes seasonal fresh fruit (with a little notice we can accommodate most dietary needs).
Our Inn is four miles from picturesque Friday Harbor and seven miles from historic Roche Harbor, ideally situated for island exploration. The Interisland Ferry makes day trips to Orcs, Lopez and Shaw islands convenient and if you return to the Inn before sunset, you can relax on the deck and watch the evening sun reflecting off the water of Sportsman Lake.
Woodland Alert! Inn to the Woods is… actually in the woods, which naturally includes deer, pine needles and uneven ground. Although our guests enjoy our forest setting, some may find it a challenge to navigate from car to entry. If you think this might be you, please talk with us prior to your arrival. We offer options that meet most needs.
As a reminder to our guests, please remember that you need to make ferry reservations before coming to the San Juan Islands.
With a four-poster bed, the Forest Room is our nod to a traditional B&B accommodation. The Salal Room has a bit of whimsy with vintage cast iron novelty banks and other curios. The Lakeview has, along with a comfy cedar-spindle bed, a terrific view of Sportsman Lake. Our second-floor room, the Arbor, seems to be ever evolving...but it has always had a hot tub for two on the balcony.Learn More
Intriguing shops, excellent art galleries, and gourmet restaurants. Fishing for salmon or bass, hiking to the summit of Mount Finlayson or golf at San Juan Island Golf and Country Club. So much to do and we’ve yet to mention sea kayaking, scuba diving and bicycling around the islands! No matter what you choose to do, don’t forget to leave time to relax at the Inn before you call it a day.Learn More
