Fabulous Getaway

I was worried about the self Check-in but it was seamless. Also, I stayed in a king bed room. I wanted to bring the pillows and bed home with me. An unexpected perk was that, even though it’s on the main strip, it was hidden away by a gorgeous garden. I had no idea hydrangeas could grow like that! Oh, and for those of us that need a fan in while we’re sleeping, they had a nice floor fan. My only regret is that I didn’t use the spa.

Anniversary Trip

Loved the Earthbox! Even though some amenities were curbed due to the Corona virus, it was still a sweet stay. The staff left us an anniversary card and special chocolate bar which we enjoyed with our morning coffee. It was such a thoughtful touch. The room was very clean, comfortable and I loved the lavender scented soaps and lotion. Best of three places we stayed during our trip! We’ll be back

Super Clean


Super clean, loved the comfortable (firm, but plush) beds. Free cruiser bikes are awesome, too. Walkable from boat marina, ferry terminal, and local shops/restaurants. We’ll be back!

Perfect getaway for my dog and I

I had been feeling stressed and overwhelmed by work and life and just needed to escape my mundane routine for a few days. San Juan Island was the perfect spot for a change of perspective and a taste of that sweet, sweet island life. Earthbox provided an excellent "home" for my dog and I for the weekend.

Most polite and friendly service

What a pleasant experience! The staff went over and above to help us handle every situation. They even scheduled a whale watching excursion for us and had a voucher ready for us to redeem during our experience. They had tea in the lobby that was amazing! Wonderful place

Love this well-run & lovely little inn - great massages too!

It's about 4 blocks from the harbor & somewhat modest from the outside but sparkling clean, comfortable rooms & very helpful staff. We had a spacious suite which was wonderful - remote blinds on the skylight, high ceilings. We had to walk a block or 2 for food but there is a close-by market & staff suggestions for great restaurants.

A wonderful retreat!

My sky room was comfortable and welcoming. The staff were consistently helpful and friendly. My “spa day” including a wonderful swim, jacuzzi, sauna and then a Signature Massage. Just exactly what I needed!
