Olga house description

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Sitting atop a knoll nestled among majestic Douglas firs, this charming, private, 2 bedroom, 2 bath, Craftsman-style, cedar home features a spectacular view that sweeps over a meadow of tree tops, you can looking upon the salt waters of Upright Channel to the Olympic Mountains. It's a great get-away retreat from the frenzy of everyday life. The Orcas Tree House allows you to lounge either on the main deck or the balcony off of the master bedroom and enjoy watching the distant ferries pass by and deer browsing or napping on the small meadow adjoining the house. There are oriental carpets and comfortable furnishings throughout the house. The wood floors, beams and natural wood doors and trim combined with lots of windows and skylights make this home light, airy, spacious and cozy.

The owner is a long time island resident, teacher and pastel landscape artist, who designed this house-of-her-dreams and will easily leave it anytime you wish to rent. The Orcas Tree House is fully equipped with everything you might need during your stay including linens, spices and condiments in the kitchen.

MASTER BEDROOM SUITE
The entire upstairs is the master bedroom suite with a very comfortable king sized bed and sitting area with a loveseat and upholstered antique chair. The bathroom has an over-sized tub/shower with a skylight above, tiled walls and twin shower heads with dual, brass controls. French doors open onto a private balcony looking out from the top of the Tree House.

OPEN LIVING ROOM, DINING ROOM, KITCHEN AREA
The L-shaped living room and dining room area of the main floor has the kitchen as its heart with an island counter and stools to makes it easy for the those cooking in the kitchen to interact with others in the living room or dining room area. There are French doors that open onto the deck from the living room and a large, picture window in the dining room - both facing the ocean and mountain view and deer meadow.

MAIN FLOOR BEDROOM
The bedroom on the main floor has a full-size bed and a bathroom with a shower.

THE QUIET SIDE OF THE ISLAND
Located halfway between Olga and Doe Bay on the east side of the island, the Orcas Tree House is away from ferry and town traffic but within a few miles of Moran State Park, Obstruction Pass DNR Park with public beach, and the Artworks and Cafe Olga.

No smoking or pets allowed. The Orcas Tree House comes with two, short-haired CATS you can leave outside during your stay or let in and pet.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  About the owner: Pam came to Orcas Island 26 years ago, drawn to the beauty and peacefulness of the island, and has been very fortunate to do what she most loves - teaching kindergarten children and painting. She is now a 'grand' teacher - teaching children of her former kindergarten students, and you'll find her original, pastel, landscape paintings and quilted wall hangings adorning the walls of the Tree House. Thirteen years ago, Pam got to design and help build this home. While not actually a 'tree house' in a tree, the house is perched on a knoll that slopes off on 3 sides. As you look out one of the many windows, you find yourself looking into the trees. The house combines her love of Craftsman-Style bungalows with her desire since childhood to have a tree house of her own. She is excited about getting to share her good fortune in living in such a beautiful place with others.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  As a landscape painter, I love looking at the ever-changing light on the meadow of douglas fir tree tops below me and the water and mountains. This is a very quiet and private perch to watch the eagles, hawks, woodpeckers, swallows and deer from.
