Fodor's Review

Shipbuilding magnate Robert Moran built this Arts and Crafts–style waterfront mansion in 1909, and it is now the centerpiece of a 40-acre resort that comprises several different buildings with sweeping views of Cascade Bay and Rosario Point—accommodations range from moderately priced standard guest rooms to deluxe one- and two-bedroom suites with fireplaces, decks, and full kitchens. The house, on the National Register of Historic Places and worth a visit even if you're not staying here, has retained its original Mission-style furniture and numerous antiques; its centerpiece, an Aeolian organ with 1,972 pipes, is used for year-round concerts in the music room. You can hike, whale-watch, and kayak nearby or stay in for a day of pampering in the on-site spa. The Mansion restaurant is a romantic, sophisticated dinner option.

Dated but clean!

We had one of the Harborside rooms. Decor was circa 1980, but the room was clean and the price was right. Great view of Eastsound. The staff was professional and helpful. We ate in the dining room only once, and were pleased with our meal. There are two pools, with one for adults only. It overlooks Eastsound with a great view. This is a place to relax and get away from the rat race!

Rosario Spa & Resort Review

3 days before Memorial Day and this place was still half shut down. Service is very poor - the staff have given up. Weeds growing out of some of the buildings. No electricity one morning (planned maintenance though the guests were not informed) so no breakfast. This should not be in Fodor's. Avoid!
