The San Juan Islands luxury hotels provide discerning travelers with some very tantalizing lodging options. There are also upscale vacation rentals to choose from, and some of the cabins and cottages that are found around the islands offer more amenities than you might expect. As far as the upscale hotels are concerned, most of these figure among the hotels on San Juan Island. There are some gems on Orcas Island as well, however, so you'll want to give both islands a look when trying to find your luxury lodging fit.
A few resorts in the San Juan Islands offer upscale guest units to go with their more affordable rooms or campsites. These resorts include the Roche Harbor Resort on San Juan Island. At the Roche Harbor Resort, travelers who wish to enjoy an upscale lodging experience can book one of the suites in the Quarryman Hall and McMillin Suites buildings. Luxurious condos and cottages are also available, though it's hard to beat the Village Homes if you want to enjoy the full experience. These homes are among the most luxurious guest units that you will find anywhere in the San Juans, and their amenities include a gourmet kitchen, a flat-screen TV, a DVD player, a fireplace, and walk-in closets, among other things. As for the Roche Harbor Resort facilities, they include a spa and two excellent restaurants.
If you wish to go the resort route when trying to find San Juans luxury accommodations, two other resorts that offer upscale guest units are the Lakedale Resort at Three Lakes on San Juan Island and the Rosario Resort, which is found on Orcas Island. The lodge rooms and the log cabins are the most luxurious accommodations at the Lakedale Resort, while those who wish to indulge at the Rosario Resort can hope to book one of the sumptuous two-bedroom suites. Both of these resorts feature wonderful facilities to go with their comfortable guest units, so you won't have trouble finding fun things to do when you're not enjoying your in-room amenities.
Boutique hotels tend to specialize in style, comfort, and amenities, and it's no different at the Friday Harbor House (pictured). This small boutique hotel is conveniently located in Friday Harbor, and its 23 contemporary guest units are easily among the most alluring hotel rooms in the San Juans. Jetted tubs, fireplaces, flat-screen TVs, DVD players, mini bars, and safes are among the amenities that you can expect to enjoy in your Friday Harbor House room, and some of the rooms boasts divine harbor views.
The San Juan Islands bed and breakfasts are also plentiful, and those who are interested in securing upscale accommodations will be happy to know that most are very comfortable retreats. Take the Wildwood Manor, for example. This lovely and elegant inn enjoys a fine location on a knoll overlooking the water, and all of its guest units provide a considerable amount of comfort. Luxury linens help to encourage a good night's sleep, and the upscale bath products are a welcoming touch. Flat-screen TVs and DVD players can also be found in the Wildwood Manor guest units, and guests have the chance to start every day off with a gourmet breakfast.
Another bed and breakfast that offers San Juans luxury accommodations is the Inn on Orcas Island. Found at Deer Harbor, this inn boasts remarkably stylish and elegant guest units, and when guests aren't relaxing in their rooms, they can admire the artwork, relax on a soft sofa in the sitting room, or take in the scenic surroundings. Borrowing a bike or a rowboat is also a possibility, and it won't be hard to arrange things such as whale watching tours or fun hiking adventures. The breakfasts at the Inn on Orcas Island are tasty and filling, which is just one more reason to book a stay, and as is true at most San Juan Islands hotels, internet access is available for guests who wish to keep in touch with the real world.
