                  Car: Recommended

                  Pilot your boat from the mainland (Bellingham, Anacortes, Seattle...) directly to Olga House. Private buoy guarantees moorage if Olga Dock is full. You can fish, crab, bird watch, and kayak right off of Olga Dock.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: Live in Portland, Oregon. We have been going to the San Juans since college - many years ago.

                  Why the Owner Chose Olga:
                  One of the unique locations in the world. Located in the San Juan Island banana belt of NW United States. Incredible marine life. Olga a picture perfect hamlet with an historic post office and the Olga Store (literally on post cards)

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Grab your favorite refreshment (and company) and hang out on the dock and enjoy the absolutely spectacular view. Watch eagles fly overhead, and the ferries and sailboats in the distance, and be mesmerized by the silence at night.
