Place at Cayou Cove
With just three secluded cottages, the property eels more discreet than your average inn. At the southwest tip of Orcas Island, the five-acre property is surrounded by a rambling lawn that extends to the shore. The rooms are well curated: antique beams, wood-burning fireplaces, and hot tubs, plus fully stocked kitchens and outdoor grills. Guests can go clamming with the staff in the mornings, then stargaze in the evening on the inn’s private beach, lit up by a blazing bonfire.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
