Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I am the owner/manager of Orcas Thyme, a personal/business coach, thrift shop owner and longtime islander, and I LOVE sharing the beauty and activities of Orcas Island with visitors. I first came to Orcas on vacation as a child, when my cousin owned Eagle Lake, and it's long been my dream spot on earth. I moved here first to manage the theater, Orcas Center. I later came back to stay because of the mellow atmosphere and lifestyle, and the caring, giving nature in this community. . . to say nothing of the staggeringly beautiful land! I am happy to arrange to facilitate your activity planning in advance of your visit, and to introduce you to any community groups that may interest you.

Why the Owner Chose Eastsound:
I had been vacationing on the island since childhood, and have always found great peace and pleasure here. I enjoy the beaches, the recreational and cultural activities, and the friendly community. Orcas Thyme is an older island home, recycled to this location six years ago. What an adventure! There is also a trailer on the property, w/privacy screening, available for an additional fee.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is a short walk to the beach, the main village of Eastsound and the airport. Set in a low-key residential area, the casual home sits on 1-1/2 acres and has a peek-a-boo view of glorious Mt. Baker from the deck. It is light-filled, with four sliding glass doors opening onto the decks. While deer and other wildlife are frequent visitors, domestic animals are usually kept within the fenced yards. Owner often walks her dog around Cascade and Mt. Lakes, and is well-connected locally with providers of many services.
