About the owner: We have been visiting the San Juan Islands for well over a decade, forged new friendships here and even got married at Rosario Mansion! Orcas Island is without a doubt the jewel of the San Juan Islands..... we just have to keep coming back!
Madrona House is owned by two couples. Craig, Sybil, Paul & Henriette. We all live in Portland, OR and between us have 4 children.
Why the Owner Chose Rosario: We bought the land over 17 years ago after looking at many different areas on Orcas. None seemed 'quite right', but when we found this jewel we knew instantly that it was what we had been looking for. Not thinking we would be able to afford to build a home here for many many years, we mentioned this to good friends of ours at a dinner party; an unexpected new partnership emerged. As two young couples, we joined forces and made our dreams come true and designed and built our getaway. It has even been featured in Sunset magazine!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Peace and comfort, but mostly family time with minimal disruptions of the every day 'hub bub' called TV/computers/phones/chores/homework. Every time we are here we spend time reconnecting with each other. The simple pleasure of spending the day on a hike or a swim, reading together in the same room or playing games makes our memories at Madrona House priceless.
