Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Hello! We are Susan and Charles and have lived in the Northwest for 11 years. We both recently retired and enjoy all that the region has to offer. Charles is an ardent bike rider and Susan a hiker. We are avid outdoor people and enjoy the abundant wildlife and scenic beauty of the region. We are also both 'people persons' and enjoy very much providing a quality vacation experience with every possible comfort in a beautiful home.

Why the Owner Chose Rosario:
Susan is from the U.K. originally and after vacationing in the Northwest, saw the similarity to certain places in the British Isles and we both new this was where we would both retire. Orcas Island is very unique in that it not only abounds with scenic beauty and amazing wildlife, but there are many cultural opportunities such as concerts and theater, not to mention wonderful shops, galleries and restaurants.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
'Dancing Deer' is a beautifully maintained home with all sorts of 'creature comforts'. Our priorities are comfort and quality. The house is very private, spacious and filled with natural southerly light. We have 2 decks both with comfortable lounging and dining furniture, so guests can relax and enjoy the amazing southerly view. We are walking distance from the beach at Rosario, Cascade Lake and Moran State Park and only a 10 minute drive from the amenities of Eastsound. We have deer that live on our property and provide our 4 grandchildren with hours of enjoyment, and many wildlife visitors including eagles and other birds. The 'suite' provides a second living area for games and videos and a great hang-out place for kids!
