Turtleback Farm Inn was also recognized by Patricia Schultz in 1000 Places to See Before You Die. "...Every night is romantic in any of its eleven elegant, uncluttered guest rooms, and every morning is special thanks to a prizewinning breakfast so memorable that it's featured regularly in food magazines, as well as in the inn's own Turtleback Cookbook."

Highlighted by a spectacular setting, detail-perfect restoration and expansion, spotless maintenance, and award-winning breakfasts, Turtleback Farm Inn is a haven for discriminating travelers who enjoy comfortable lodgings, breathtaking scenery, varied outdoor activities, unique shopping, and fine food.

This graceful and comfortable inn offers seven bedrooms, each with a private bath and decorated with a blend of fine antiques and contemporary pieces. Each room has its own individual charm which blends perfectly with the whole. The addition of the very private Orchard House with four spacious bedrooms, each with full bath, refrigerator, gas fireplace, and private deck, adds another dimension to these fine accommodations. All rooms have custom woolen comforters and down pillows, radios, and hair dryers, and most have clawfooted tubs.

Breakfast is served in the farmhouse dining room or on the expansive deck overlooking the valley below -- welcoming the morning sun. Tables are set with fine bone china, silver, and crisp linen. Guests staying in the Orchard House enjoy breakfast in the privacy and comfort of their own room. Every effort is made to provide a zestful beginning to the day: fresh fruits and juices, the Inn's own award-winning granola, home-baked breads or pastries, and a daily main course featuring farm-fresh eggs and meats in delightful combinations. A wide assortment of teas and coffee is offered and is available throughout the day. As the day ends, guests are offered a glass of sherry, a cheery fire, and a game of chess, cards, or Scrabble...a chance to step back in time and recapture moments of good fellowship.

The Inn is centrally located in beautiful Crow Valley. Close to Moran State Park, the Inn is six miles from the ferry landing, almost three miles from the West Sound Marina, and four miles from Eastsound, the island's principal village. For those who are disposed to linger, there are many recreational activities, including golf, tennis, sea kayaking, bicycle rentals, bird watching, and freshwater fishing and swimming in the park. Charter boats are available for saltwater fishing, whale watching, cruising, and sailing, and the area boasts fascinating artisans and shops as well as many excellent restaurants.

Escape the hustle and bustle of city and suburban life. At Turtleback Farm Inn, the fire is crackling, the woods are fragrant, and the cookies are warm. Bill and Susan await your arrival and will spare no effort to ensure your memorable vacation.

Unmatched Serenity...

Turtleback Farm Inn overlooks 80 acres of forest and farmland in the shadow of Turtleback Mountain.

It commands a spectacular view of lush meadows, duck ponds, and outbuildings, with Mt. Constitution providing the backdrop to the east.

The setting is serene, complete with a fringe of fir trees framing the open fields, which in the late spring produce bales of hay for the resident sheep. A pair of 300-year-old maples and six freshwater ponds complete this bucolic scene.

Guests may walk from the Inn into the pastures below.

Domestic geese and chickens share the land with an ever-changing display of migratory birds and a flock of sheep, including a new prized Cotswold ram and two registered ewes.

Bald and Golden Eagles are often seen soaring above the ponds, and noisy crows, from which the valley gets its name, perch on the barn surveying the scampering chickens below.
