Orcas Lodging - Otters Pond or Once in a Blue Moon Farm??

Asked before but was mixed into a longer thread. Also hoping someone new may see this.

Just curious if *anyone* here has ever stayed or visited these places?

No reviews on TripAdvisor & needing to find a little spot. Other nights we'll be at Spring Bay, but trying to add a night or two, as we love this area.

Thanks!

Actually, just noticed there *are* two reviews for Otters Pond on TripAdvisor, but that's still not much.

Once in a Blue Moon has none.
Thanks!

Hmmmm...
so no one on these boards has tried either place, it seems.

Bummer. :-\

Also have an option for the Inn on Orcas Island.

Otters Pond is recommended in the book "Washington, Off the Beaten Path" 2001 edition as a good place to stay that is more away from it all. They list only four places on Orcas and don't include "Once in a Blue Moon." (They include Turtleback Farm Inn, Windsong B&B and Spring Bay, which they say is even farther off the beaten path.) Maybe you could ask the people at Spring Bay.

Daydreamer - your choice depends on what you're looking for. If you want a B&B, then I'd recommend Otter's Pond, hands down, over Once in a Blue Moon Farm. Right on lovely pond, lots of bird life, friendly innkeepers. I have stayed there, and enjoyed myself.

The book "Northwest Best Places" is a reliable place to look for lodging advice. They have a smaller "San Juan Island Best Places" too-I'm not sure if it has more info or if it's just the San Juan part culled from the larger book.
