Landmark Orcas Island is located in northwest Washington State. To quote the Orcas Island Chamber Website:
“There are several modes of transportation to Orcas Island and the beautiful San Juan Islands, in addition to the popular Washington State Ferries. Visitors can also come by private boat, airplane or seaplane (including Kenmore Air) directly from several locations listed below, depending on the season. No matter how you get here, the scenery is spectacular and getting here is half the fun!
“Directions to the Washington State Ferries Anacortes Terminal: If you are coming by car and taking a Washington State Ferry, the mainland terminal which serves the San Juans is located in Anacortes, Washington, 80 miles northwest of Seattle. Follow Interstate highway I-5 north from Seattle, take Exit 230 and follow Highway 20 west to Anacortes. Once you are in Anacortes, take a left on 12th Street (Safeway will be on the right), then follow the signs to the ferry terminal and ticketing booths.”
Landmark Orcas Island is a little to far from the ferry for walking, so if you walked onto the ferry (great option during the summer), you can rent mopeds, take a shuttle bus or rent a car. Once you get to Orcas Island and have your transportation figured out, just follow the main road, Orcas Road (sometimes called the Horseshoe Highway,) left off the Ferry, all the way to Eastsound Village, about 9.5 miles. Don’t turn off until you see the wide spot in the road after you come down the 20mph hill. There, turn right into Eastsound Village. Landmark Orcas Island is the first hotel on the left-hand side, just one block into town, across the street from Waterfront Park. We’ll be waiting for you!
