About Our B&B Lodging in the San Juan Islands
Carl and Susan Silvernail, owners and innkeepers, personally manage Otters Pond Bed and Breakfast as an adult retreat; a place of respite and serenity. We are committed to providing a relaxed, tranquil setting. Orcas Island offers spectacular natural beauty and a community enjoying the varied activities of northwest living. We network with restaurants, kayak and bicycle outfitters, naturalists, artists and others to provide you with information and services for everlasting memories. We operate under San Juan County Permit 97CU008 assuring that we abide by stringent land use policies.
Check-in is between 3:00 P.M. and 6:00 P.M. and Check-out is by 11:00 A.M. Special-occasion services are available by arrangement. No check-ins are allowed later than 11:00 PM
Sumptuous breakfast seating can be on the pond-side deck (weather dependent) or in the dining room as you choose. We specialize in gourmet breakfasts featuring delectable food products of our island region. We have a single-menu breakfast, which is served at 9:00 AM. Since we serve a 4-5 course breakfast, we may not be able to provide for every dietary special request, especially on last-minute notice, and we may apply an extra charge of $25 depending on the circumstances. Please let us know your dietary special needs when you make reservations. We are proud to be a non-smoking B&B residence–smoking of anything is not permitted anywhere on the property.
Pets: Our special little American Eskimo-Pomeranian pal Chuli asks that you leave your pets in loving care elsewhere (we have a wonderful kennel on the Island and would be happy to assist you). Thanks!
Children: Accommodations for children are not available at this time.
We are shoeless inside the B&B, and we provide comfortable, clean slippers for you or you may bring your own. Television is available only in the Swan and Goldfinch Rooms and sometimes in the common area for special events only (our aim is to provide a quiet escape). We provide music CDs of island artists in our rooms and in our common areas.
Mobility Impairment? We have several long stairs in the B&B. Our B&B is not suitable for anyone with impaired mobility that makes stair climbing risky or potentially dangerous. Call us if you have concerns.
Cancellation Policy: A valid VISA, MasterCard, Discover Card or American Express Card will secure your reservation. At the time we accept your reservation, we charge your credit card a 50% deposit. At the 30th day or less prior to your arrival, your credit card may be charged for the balance of your entire stay. If you cancel within 30 days prior to your reserved stay with us, you will be responsible for all room nights you reserved. You are only reimbursed for those room nights we are able to re-book, but a 10% cancellation fee applicable to the entire reserved stay will be deducted from your reimbursement regardless of whether the room is re-booked. You are responsible for all reserved room nights regardless of delayed check-in or early checkout.
