Car: Recommended

The Buckhorn Waterfront Beach Cabin is on beautiful Orcas Island. Orcas is often called the resort island because of the many beach resorts, restaurants, art galleries and charming shops. Recreational options include golf, tennis, a small movie house, live music, restaurants and, in the summer, a seasonal Saturday farmers' market. You can also hike in many places, including Moran State Park, Washington's fourth largest State Park, as well as Turtle Back Mountain. There are also several mountain lakes to explore.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: We, Larry and Liz Pollock, currently live on Camano Island in WA state. We purchased our dream place on Orcas Island over 25 years ago after falling in love with each other and with the island. Our cabin home was previously part of the Buckhorn Lodge back in the 1930s, and used as a fishing resort destination. We love Orcas so much, we even got married at the little chapel in Eastsound and had our reception right at the cabin. Lovely! The 'cabin' as we lovingly refer to it in our family, has been our place to vacation, relax, and rejuvenate with one another. Our kids, Niki and Drew, now adults, have many fond memories building rafts, playing on the beach in front, swimming in the pool, and sharing their special place with friends. As educators we also had the added bonus to spend most of our summers on Orcas. But, now, as our kids are grown and one of us (Larry) is retired, we have decided to once again share our little piece of heaven with others, which also allows us to travel to other destinations around this amazing planet. We welcome you to build your own memories at our Orcas cabin home.

Why the Owner Chose Eastsound:
The most amazing thing about this property is the easy waterfront access and spectacular views. If you know Orcas Island at all, you come to realize that low-bank waterfront homes are hard to find. Our cabin is waterfront, and has just a few steps down to the beach. There are many things to do on Orcas, but we find just being at the cabin is wonderful. We see otters, seals, porpoises, eagles and waterfowl, and deer, literally every day. We also have an older pool & spa in our backyard, which is available during the summer and is solar heated. It is so much fun for kids and for adults! Renters will also have use of our 3 kayaks, 1 canoe, and use of our dinghy if you own a boat. Just minutes away from Eastsound (the main town on Orcas), it is easy to check out the local stores, grab some good food and buy your own groceries.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This cabin is truly a unique spot. Low bank waterfront, pool in the back, spectacular views, and a charming, cozy knotty pine home. One of a kind experience for all!
