During Your Stay

Otters Pond Bed & Breakfast is proudly owned and operated by Amanda Zimlich, a Pacific Northwest native, professional chef and avian enthusiast. She invites you to experience the tranquility of Orcas Island and a magical nature lover’s paradise from the best spot on the island.

Otters Pond

Otters Pond is located on the eastern, mountainous side of Orcas Island next to Moran State Park at the base of Mt. Constitution and 4 miles from Eastsound village. The property is a protected wetland and special retreat for birds and Orcas Island wildlife. Our Northwest styled bed & breakfast retreat is set back from the road behind trees, wrapped by decks and a garden, giving our guests the perfect place for relaxation and taking in the scenery.

Wildlife

Wildlife

Otters Pond is registered with the World Wildlife Federation and Audubon Society. Located next to Moran State Park, it hosts hundreds of species of wildlife, from our namesake river otter to raptors and many other species of birds, mammals, marsupials, amphibians and fish. It is a birders’ destination. We invite our guests to lounge on our decks, borrow our binoculars and field guides, and take in all of the sights and sounds which mother nature has to offer in every season.
