Destination: Rosario Resort
One hundred years ago Seattle Shipbuilder,
Robert Moran, built Rosario with Arts and
Crafts ideals in mind - time spent with family, a
respect for nature and a return to quality hand
craftsmanship lost in the industrial revolution.
One hundred years later, San Juan County has
approved the Rosario Resort Master Plan for
redevelopment which preserves Moran's
legacy and renews resort operations for the
enjoyment of our community and visitors for
Rosario's next one hundred years.
A visit to Rosario Resort is a must when planning a boating adventure
in the San Juan Islands. The opportunity to hand feed the local Blacktail
deer is almost irresistible. The Rosario Marina is located on tranquil
Cascade Bay halfway up East Sound's eastern shore on Orcas Island.
The distant grandeur of the historic Moran Mansion guides boaters to
Rosario as they enter East Sound. The marina offers over 36 slips,
eight mooring buoys, safe anchorage and a warm welcome. Be sure to
visit the museum and it's organ room where concerts are provided
during the summer months
