Deer Harbor house description

Maggie's Manor, one of the quintessential San Juan Islands vacation rentals, on Orcas Island is a sunny, gracious four bedroom waterfront family vacation home surrounded by spectacular views of Deer Harbor.

OFFERING SPECIAL PRICING FOR OFF SEASON! REDUCED RATES FOR SMALLER GROUPS AVAILABLE NOW.

Step out onto the welcoming front porch or into the command view outdoor Spa, where you can relax and look at your own picture postcard vistas of the smaller San Juan Islands and the snow-capped Olympic Mountains in the distance or at night gaze at myriad of stars in the sky and the twinkling anchor lights of the boats at rest in Deer Harbor.

Maggie's Manor sits high above our private 300' wide deep water Deer Harbor shoreline on 3 ½ acres with ample manicured lawns. Soak in the sun, clean air, and sweeping views from the bird-filled gardens. Keep toasty around the outdoor campfire while watching for Northern Lights under the star-filled sky at night. Hike through our private 110 acre wildlife preserve and wild natural organic farm at the heart of Deer Harbor and look for Great Blue Heron, Bald and Golden Eagles, Red Tailed Hawks, Osprey, River Otters, Raccoons, Black Tailed Deer, and a host of other San Juan Islands wildlife. A birders’ delight!

With this Orcas Island accommodation you may actually want to prepare your own meals. Whether you like to cook your own crab, barbeque your own salmon, steaks or like to cook hot dogs over the open fire you will like the west side of Maggie's outdoor cooking area and campfire pit. Perhaps you are preparing an anniversary dinner or hosting a small party or wedding reception or rehearsal dinner. There is enough room in our kitchen for many cooks and helpers. With four sinks spread over three separate areas there is plenty room to prepare a festive gourmet meal. Serve on the east deck, the west yard picnic area, or the dining room all with spectacular water views.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1996

                      About the owner: We have lived full time on Orcas Island since 1975, raising three sons, who are now married with children who love to visit their grand-parents. We have been happily married for 45 years! We moved up here with a down payment and no jobs and over the years have done many things. We have worked, farmed, been in construction, operated heavy equipment, coached Little League for all three sons, participated in countless community activities, volunteered at the school, run two successful gift and clothing shops, designed and built several buildings including the amazing Gnome House, and remodeled our other vacation rental waterfront home, Maggie's Manor, using the outstanding design drawings of our eldest son, now an Architect. We are involved in cutting edge restoration of marine habitat and just completed a 9 weir salmon ladder and planted over 1500 plants and trees over our estuarine and riparian areas. If you have a Facebook page, visit the Deer Harbor Stewardship Project page to see some of what we have been doing. We hope you will 'Like' it. We have extensive backgrounds in skiing, sailing, cycling and mountaineering. We enjoy adventures and vacations with our children and grand-children.

                      Why the Owner Chose Deer Harbor:
                      We acquired this classic island waterfront home from a dear family friend who had lived there for over 40 years. We added the third and fourth bedrooms on the upper floor along with a second bathroom. The original tiny kitchen was enlarged to a gorgeous, modern 400 square foot kitchen. After extensive refurbishing and redecorating, we began welcoming vacationing guests in the summer of 1997. Maggie’s Manor is located on our 140 acre estate, near our home, and also near our other wonderful vacation rental an extremely popular chalet, the Gnome House. We wanted to share our Orcas Island lifestyles with visitors from all over the world. We have on-going environmental restoration activities on our 3 streams, several ponds, magnificent 20 acre estuary, and 20 acre wildfowl marsh, as well as beautiful, productive farm and forest land. It is considered the most significant environmentally diverse San Juan Islands' property by local, state and federal environmental agencies. The beauty and tranquility of Nature inspires everyone who visits. Orcas Island is the most popular place in Washington to get married, and is the dream vacation spot for people all over the world, and we get to live here! And when visitors leave and we say 'goodbye', we always smile...not because we are happy to see them go, but rather because we are so happy that we don't have to leave this paradise!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      In addition to the extraordinary beauty and serenity of Nature,so inspiring to us all, the incredible good weather in Deer Harbor is one of the main reasons for living here. Deer Harbor on beautiful Orcas Island is located in the 'Rain Shadow' area of the Great Pacific Northwest enjoying only 23 inches of rain and over 260 sunny days annually. This means that we can enjoy the great outdoors all year long, hiking, biking, sailing, fishing, etc. There have been documented over 80 species of birds frequenting the extremely vibrant freshwater marsh. There are a variety of environmental programs in progress. We work with scientists, students, and Native Americans on our restoration efforts. Our property is the site of the first white European settler on Orcas Island, Louis Cayou, who married into the Samish Nation in the mid-1800s. We are working with the Samish descendants of Cayou in our restoration efforts, and hope to have their annual Canoe Journey with about 60 canoes stop here in the future. .
