good place to stay in the San Juan Islands?
Thinking of a bike trip to the San Juan Islands middle of September----haven't been up there for years on the ferry. Any recommendations on bike friendly places to stay? There will be 4 of us.

I have not been up there so I can't help with recommendations, but Groupon or LivingSocial had a deal up there going recently, you might check and see if it's on there. The deal was Sunday-Thursday though, not sure if that helps or not.

Yep! Rent one of the cabins, perfect for 4 people with bikes.

Orcas is a lot cheaper than San Juan (lodging and food). Check out Rosario. Roche Harbor is nice but quite expensive. For food:
Friday Harbor - Cask and Schooner; the bakery has great stuff for breakfast
Orcas island hotel restaurant - great food!
Rosario restaurant has great food too.

Dove Bay has a cool resort with cabins and camping and a hot tub (heard it was a nudist colony at one point) on Orcas Island.

On Friday Harbor there's Wharfside B & B which is a sailboat that's a B&B. Cool place to stay.

I'm a B&B kinda of gal and stayed at Harrison House Suites & Tucker House Inn in Friday Harbor. Nice place.

Just beware that many places up there will require a 2 night stay.

on the Groupon and Living Social deals. That's how I stayed the last time for my birthday. Rode up and went whale watching. Also watch for the damn deer, tons of them there!

Oops I mean Doe Bay, not Dove Bay. There a bunch of places listed in Destination Highways but too many to posy here. However here are some interesting ones:
Turtleback Farm Inn BB - Orcas
Kangaroo House BB - Orcas
Orcas BB Hotline - check for number. In book they listed too many numbers 360 3376 8888
Olympic Lights BB - San Juan

Now I want to go back.
