Experience the culture of Orcas Island through genuine hospitality and food...and some pretty wonderful rooms!



From breathtaking water views and heated towel racks to over sized soaking tubs and custom linens, we've created spaces that will hold you and your biggest dreams.  Private balconies give you a commanding view of Fishing Bay and the emerald coastline down the bay.


We have 50 years of hospitality under our belts, or rather between our sheets.  Let us be the soft place you lay your head after a day of windswept adventure on the Salish Sea - although therapeutic doses of doing nothing are also recommended.  These rooms fit the bill.

Shared Bath

Democratic rooms for the budget-minded traveler who doesn't want to forgo the best service and location on the island.  Shared showers and toilets are located in the hallway but thoughtful amenities make this feel like home.  *Children under 4 are not allowed in these thin-walled rooms.

Shared Bath Rooms in the Historic Main Building  If you just need a cozy spot to tuck yourself in at night, after a day out and about, these simple rooms are for you. They are small but incredibly charming and affordable for an Orcas Island vacation.   These rooms are pretty "no frills", but we don't skimp on the hospitality and you get the same amazing location right in the heart of the island for easy exploring and adventures.

***The Historic Main Building is pet-free.  We only allow pets in specific rooms in the East Wing.  Please call us for availability at (360)376-2200.

The Historic Main Building is a grand old dame and an Orcas Island landmark.  "She" was built in 1888 by William Shattuck and originally served as the jail, post office, general store, dance hall and house of ill repute (or so the rumor goes).   In the 1970's it was the only building on the property and was home to a spiritual commune - The Louis Foundation - complete with guru, famous celebrity followers, and plenty of controversy. 

Now it provides lodging to a modern crowd but its history can be felt beneath your feet and in your heart, if you let it.  The floors are wavy from settling around the 125 year old stone fireplace on the first floor and just like a fairy godmother who lives forever, she continues to welcome, comfort, and bless those that visit her.


  • Rooms share bathrooms located in the hallway

  • Each hallway has a men's bathroom, women's bathroom, and private shower

  • Cozy, charming, and affordable.

  • Telephones in each room however no television.

  • Free Wi-fi and parking.

  • We don't allow children under 4 years of age in the Historic Main Building due to the age of the buildings sound proofing...in our experience those cute little feet just march to the beat of their own drum and sometimes sing to it too. This is the only building with age restrictions.

Looking for something with just a little more?  Check out the East Wing.

Or maybe a room with heated towel racks and floors?

With the town of Eastsound within walking distance of your door and the waterfront just steps away, these rooms are the perfect combination of comfort and value in the heart of Orcas Island.   We can't do anything about the direction that the building faces, it doesn't have a water view - except for one room.  But what we have done is make the inside as comfortable and welcoming as possible...and our guests are telling us they'd like to move right in!
