A delightful waterfront inn and organic farm on four acres, this hotel’s choices include a cottage with a queen bedroom, plus queen sleeper sofa in the living room; the Family Suite with the same bedding set-up; and two studio suites with a queen bed and a single sleeper chair for a max of three guests. No matter which accommodation option you choose, you’ll have a kitchenette with refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffeemaker, a TV and a deck with a gas grill (shared, save for the cottage which is separate and has its own private deck and grill). While at Pebble Cove, you and your kids will be able to help yourselves to berries, veggies and eggs from the farm, hang out with their goats, chickens and pony, take the farm’s rowboat to Skull Island, rent kayaks or a private boat tour, lounge in a hammock, play on swings, enjoy the outdoor hot tub and make S’mores over the fire pit by the sea. A basket of organic snacks, teas, juices and more will greet you upon arrival.

What a treat to stay at PCF. It was a really nice break from your typical hotel and had everything you could need. We played with the ponies, Tony and Buddy. Said hello to the pigs Herman and Bernie (Sanders). Used the fire pit, so easy with everything you need ready to go. The room was big and comfortable. You could buy some groceries and never leave the property. You can also pick fresh vegetables and fruit from the garden. What a special experience. We loved every minute and so did out dog Romeo! He was obsessed with Tony the pony =)

Great place, great island to visit. We stayed three nights in the Family Suite and enjoyed the garden and the animals on the farm. It's very quiet and peaceful at Pebble Cove, with a lot of space to just hang out and relax and a bunch of fun activities for adventurous kids and adults (the complimentary row boat was fun to take out on the water, but you'll get a workout).
The family suite was nice and had decent amenities considering how small the cooking area was. They provided a hot plate, small cast iron skillet and large mixing bowl, plates and utensils, a simple 2-cup french press, dish towels, and whatever other items others had left behind. WiFi works fine, TV works although we barely used it, and iHome radio will pair via bluetooth for streaming music. There's a bunch of DVDs to watch too.
The kitchen area and bathroom are both in the master suite, and it felt like these would work better in the living area of the suite, but we managed (just be warned that it might be awkward to share this suite with another couple). There's also no closet or dressers in this unit, so you'll be living out of your suit case.
The animals on the farm are a lot of fun and the garden provided some good additions to our meals (there's an impressive selection of apples and pears in their small orchard in Sept). It's fun to dump your organic kitchen scraps in the corral and watch literally every animal on the farm come running to get them.
Great place, we'd definitely go back. After driving around the island it looked like one of the nicer properties on Orcas. Short drive to Eastsound, easy access to/from the ferry, beautiful views right from your room. Can't beat any of that.
