North Beach Inn: Orcas Island Pet Friendly Lodging

Our thirteen housekeeping cottages are dotted along our expansive private beach, a perfect setting for family gatherings or romantic retreats; for kids or dogs; for playing or relaxing.

With their spacing and wooded setting our comfortable, rustic, beachfront Orcas Island cabins offer a sense of privacy and peace that’s hard to find elsewhere. Kids and dogs love to play on our beach (one-third mile of rare no-bank, pebble and sand), probably the finest in the San Juan Islands, with sweeping views towards the Canadian gulf islands to the north-west, and dramatic sunsets.

North Beach Inn on Orcas Island is located just a couple of miles from the village of Eastsound (Orcas’ main ‘town’) where you will find a relatively large, well-stocked grocery store, a number of restaurants, coffee shops, and unique artisan shops.  There is also a liquor store, a movie theater, and an internet café.  Being near Eastsound, WA means we are less than half-an-hour’s drive west to the ferry landing or east to Moran State Park.

Turning down our road you will venture through over half a mile of woods and fields before even reaching the cottages and beach. So although centrally located and close to most of the San Juan Islands’ many amenities, we are able to maintain a sense of isolation.
