Property description

Spring Special in effect for stays now through May 13, 2015.

Conveniently located, 10 minute walk to the village of Eastsound and 5 minutes walk to the beach at Waterfront Park, charming Huckleberry House is comfortably equipped to be your Orcas Island home away from home!

From a south-facing slope, we overlook the bay beautifully filtered by native trees from the living, dining and loft areas.

Centrally located halfway between Moran State Park and the ferry landing, the Eastsound area's many restaurants, shops and activities make it an ideal home base for island visitors. A scenic 15 minute drive takes you to Moran State Park with miles of hiking trails and beautiful Cascade Lake which offers swimming, fishing and boat rentals.

Fully furnished including leather sofas, new 40' flat screen TV with DVD and free WIFI. A well-equipped kitchen with washer and dryer, and spacious dining area. Plus two queen bedrooms, one in an upstairs loft with a tree-filtered view of East Sound Bay. The lofted, exposed beam ceilings, and fir trim on battened walls give our charming craftsman home a bright and cozy atmosphere.

Huckleberry House is the perfect spot for a relaxing stay on Orcas in any season, or an ideal starting point for your exploration of all the San Juan Islands.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Pam & Steve on Cascade Lake Bridge, Moran State Park, Orcas Island

Why the Owner Chose Eastsound:
Welcome to Huckleberry House! We purchased it in 2006 when we were compelled by family issues to return to the mainland after a short but delightful six years of living in the islands. It was a way for us to keep our 'foot in the door' and have a place to stay while visiting the good friends we made while we lived here. You'd never know it if I didn't tell you, but it was actually built in the 60's and completely renovated inside and out shortly before we purchased it. We really like that it's lived on the island so long. We also really enjoy the central location. When we lived here, we were on an outer island and Eastsound was an hour away, so it's a big treat for us to be able to walk into 'town' on a whim. We love Orcas because it provides the best of both worlds; amazing outdoor scenery and activities as well as good eats and fun shops. I know you'll find our house and Orcas Island as relaxing and charming as we do. Cheers!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
May I just say location, location, location!!! Staying right in the center of Orcas Island gives you easy access to the 'ends' of the island if you'd like to explore during your visit. And if you'd rather stay home and relax at the house, it's really nice to be so close to the village that you can easily walk or drive there in a few minutes for coffee or a little shopping or a meal or the groceries to make one back at the house. Enjoy!
