Eastsound guest house description

Brand new northwest craftsmen home is charming and spacious. An eastward view from the front porch is of the neighboring wooded area. Located in the heart of Eastsound for an easy stroll to shops, restaurants, and parks.
There is a scenic walking path that winds along the peaceful alder grove where you will find a covered shelter for picnics and campfire use. The pathway continues on to provide access to Eastsound Village and the public Waterfront Park. Enjoy the park for picnics, beach combing, kayaking, or meander out to Indian Island via the low tide exposed land bridge.




A Perfect Spot for Wedding Party Guests to Stay: Orcas Island is a wedding mecca during the busy summer months in fact the San Juan Islands are considered one of the Top Destination Wedding Venues in America. This home is perfect to rent for the many family and friends who will need accommodations. Compare to local hotels and you will find the overall price to be more than competitive. When you have extra time attend a Sunday Night Concert in Eastsound Park, go to the Episcopal Church for the Wednesday Brown Bag Lunch Concert, or in late August attend the famous Chamber Music Festival.

All the Comforts of Home: Why not rent a fully equipped house? Have the option of making meals or foraging for a late night snack. Morning coffee is right at your fingertips, additionally, you can make an entire pot rather than two cups at a time. Plenty of room for family to gather in the open kitchen, dining, living areas. Go ahead, relax, take a candlelit bath in the upstairs claw foot tub. All beds are very comfortable memory foam mattresses.

              Eastsound Village is a 7 minute car ride to Moran State Park; A favorite for locals to spend the day at the swim beach with family and friends. Moran boasts some of the best hiking, biking, horseback riding, fishing, and scenic views. Enjoy old growth forests, abundant wildlife, or travel to the top of Mount Constitution for the best 360 degree view. Orcas Island is also a family friendly destination with access to a world renowned skateboard park, plenty of weekend festivals, many local parks with play areas and enough space to fly a kite. Take a whale watching trip with Deer Harbor Charters, sign up kids for a multitude of fun classes with The Orcas Recreation Program, or there is a child-teen activity center called The Funhouse.

              *** For more information about Orcas Island copy and paste link into your browser http://orcasislandchamber.com

              Other Activities: Public Library, Farmer's Market, The Funhouse, Skateboard Park, Swimming @ Cascade Lake, Nature Tours, and Whale Watching with Deer Harbor Charters

The course WSGA rating is 67.8/69.8 slope 115/115. It is situated in the heart of Orcas Island just a 5 minute drive from the house. It is a beautiful and fun course, called 'One of the best kept secrets of the Pacific Northwest.' The clubhouse is cozy and comfortable. You can order a meal or snack, as well as beer and wine.

              learn more about the course, plus, read the endorsement from island resident and ski film guru, Warren Miller.

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: Kari and Jim love living and working on Orcas Island. Everyday we are amazed we were lucky enough to have landed in such a fantastic, beautiful, and giving community. In 2009, we were able to purchase a home for our family and future retirement plans. We reside in this home during the school year and move to our other property during the summer months. This house is now available for rent during the spring, summer, and fall.

              Why the Owner Chose Eastsound:
              Our home is in a perfect location on the island because it is an easy walk to everything in town. The home is modern, cute, and comfortable and will suit occupants from 2 persons up to 8.
