Property description

Enjoy your vacation in this delightful, lovingly renovated vintage island home! Built by settlers in 1908, it embodies the fascinating history of these beautiful San Juan Islands. The house is centrally located in Orcas Island's Eastsound Village -- called one of the most charming travel destinations in America. Fenced yard with lovely landscaping ensures your privacy, while enjoying proximity to all conveniences. This coastal classic is equally appealing for a romantic get-away, or for a gathering of family and friends.

Stroll to Orcas Island's Farmer's Market and barbeque on your deck, or enjoy a meal in one of Eastsound's heralded restaurants offering world-class cuisine. A bookstore and lattes are just around the corner, and whalewatch tours and/or kayak rentals can be arranged nearby. Walk to the public dock just yards away for boating excursions. Watch sunsets, eagles, and the abundant wildlife around Indian Island. Facing southwest, your view includes the bay, shoreline of picturesque Eastsound, and unmatched island sunsets. Only 10 miles from the ferry landing, and 10 miles from majestic Moran State Park and Mt. Constitution, this location is really the perfect hub for your trip.

Four bedrooms offer lots of privacy, with one bedroom on the ground floor and three upstairs. Master bedroom overlooks the gorgeous view. Fully equipped kitchen with all amenities. Large flatscreen TV's in the living room and downstairs bedroom. Enjoy a drink on the deck and absorb the magic of Orcas Island. We look forward to welcoming you!

(Well-behaved pets welcome).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We have been on Orcas Island for many decades (in fact Wally grew up here!) so are true islanders. We can suggest not only major travel activites, but little known gems on island backroads. We are raising two daughters here -- no better place in the world!

Why the Owner Chose Eastsound:
We have always loved this house as it is an intrinsic architectural element on the charming Eastsound shoreline. We welcomed the opportunity to restore it to its original glory.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sipping coffee or a glass of wine on the deck, breathing in that clear island air, and contemplating the view! We also love wandering around the village, hiking in the Turtleback Mountain Reserve, and exploring Moran State Park. We know many of the restauranteurs in town and love the many delicious varied options for an evening out.
