- 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 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. ...moreless

We had a wonderful time at this home. Larry was there to greet us upon arrival and show us around the house. What a great personal touch! We were all so comfortable that our 2 year old slept well every night. The location is amazing. Right on the water with a beautiful view of Mt. Baker. There were birds, deer and seals to watch right from the dining room. The rocky and driftwood strewn shore was great for walks and easy to launch the kayaks. If we get the chance to go back to Orcas, we hope this house is available.

After one day at the house my 9 year old asked if we could come back next summer. The house is cozy and homey. It is located about 10 minutes outside of Eastsound, close enough to get there without much car time, but far enough away to feel like you are getting away from it all. An easy drive to Moran State park and Cascade lake. As the other reviewers have mentioned, you could not ask for a better view with Mt. Baker and a view of the Cascade Mt. range on the horizon and beautiful sky at sun set and sun rise. Canadian geese hung out on the lawn with us as we roasted marshmallows at the back yard fire pit. Having use of the pool with its cool solar heating system was so much fun! We also enjoyed the game cupboard, puzzles, and ping pong table. The kitchen had most everything you would need. Larry and Liz’s paradise because ours for our week stay and we thank them for that.

A perfect Spring Break

We are already planning our return trip to this home! So, let me say that it is with hesitation that I offer a review for this property, because I don't want it to already be taken when we return to Orcas Island! But it really is a comfortable, perfect place with views that are spectacular and the absolute best location. During our 4 day stay, the wildlife we saw from the deck included: eagles, great blue heron, otters, seals, porpoise, and several different types of ducks. Not to mention the sweeping views, which were stunning. The home isn't fancy, but it's clean, comfortable, has a wonderful bonus room, and we LOVED it! And we certainly took advantage of the cupboard full of games, the ping pong table, and the kayaks. SO perfect! We are looking forward to heading back there - so don't reserve the dates we want!

Owner response: Thank you Jeff and Mali for the glowing review! I have to admit, we are partial to the place as well. We don't call it our magical paradise for no reason, and we are so happy when someone else loves it as well. Looking forward to your next visit! Liz and Larry :)
This home is even better than we could have hoped! It is absolutely an amazing spot on Orcas! The view is to die for. We sat on the deck and just looked out and relaxed for a lot of the time. Of course, it didn't hurt that the weather was sunny and warm too. We got to see Mount Baker in the distance, some otters, and had a lot of eagle sightings. Then we took a hike up Turtle Back Mountain and that was spectacular too! We strongly recommend this spot. You will NOT be disappointed!

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, 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 a pool in our backyard, which during the summer is solar heated and 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!
