Rosario Resort & Spa sits in ocean-front splendor on the coastline of Orcas Island, the largest of the San Juan Islands, an archipelago located off the coast of Washington state. This beautiful island resort can be reached only by ferry, private boat or seaplane; its remote nature means quiet and solitude among stately forests, sparkling waters and teeming wildlife.
The resort offers families and couples a place to retreat and wonder at the natural and unspoiled surroundings, while enjoying comfortable lodgings with unparalleled views of Cascade Bay. The resort is a perfect weekend trip from Seattle.
Rosario Resort began as a private home in the early 20th century. In 1906, ship builder and former Seattle mayor Robert Moran built Moran Mansion as a home for his family. Inspired by the Arts and Crafts design movement, Moran’s architectural focus was on respect for nature, a return to hand craftsmanship and the space and facilities for spending time with family. The 40 acre waterfront property is still one that is harmonious with nature and designed for family. The original Moran Mansion is now a fascinating period museum which can be toured daily.
