My husband and I stayed with you probably fifteen years ago and STILL remember your granola. We can't find anything in the stores after all these years that even comes close! Thanks!

Many consider Orcas the most beautiful (of the San Juan Islands), and among its many inns and bed-and-breakfasts the Turtleback Farm Inn is unique in many respects. It's a working farm set on 80 private acres of sheep- and cow-grazing meadows, woods, and duck ponds, with a green clapboard farmhouse that dates back to the late 1800s. 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 - 1000 Places to See Before You Die
