Property description

The cabin is located approximately five miles east of the Orcas Village and is truly off the beaten path. As you leave the Village, the road winds through pastoral views giving way to an old-growth forest of Douglas fir and cedar and finally to Lake Killebrew. You are venturing far from the crowds and stress of everyday life. Our cabin is situated at the end of a winding country road on the edge of a south-facing, mossy knoll with great filtered sun all day. A mix of Shore pine, Douglas fir and Madrona surround and shelter the cabin. The reflection of the afternoon sun through these trees dances across the water providing a truly magical sight.

This unique retreat provides ultimate privacy and also takes you back to an era of simpler times. An old-fashioned, wood-fired cook stove, cedar log walls, fir and pine floors, hand-peeled railings, and braded area floor rugs exemplify the décor. The main level has one bedroom, one bathroom, a great room, dining room and kitchen. The master bedroom is located on the upper level. Additionally, there is a sleeping loft and a sitting area on the second floor. A unique log stairway provides access to the lower level for storage and laundry.

Other Amenities

  • If you are looking for amenities such as a HDTV, a hot tub, high-speed internet or a chief's kitchen--an alternate selection is advisable. However, it you are seeking seclusion, charm, and intimate contact with nature--you have found it. This cabin is located in a small, rural, community of approximately twenty other properties at the end of a winding gravel road. Adjacent structures are well hidden and you may rarely see neighbors. It is extremely peaceful and quiet in the area and guests need to be consistent with that setting and respectful of other community members. Finally, fresh water is a valuable commodity in the San Juan Islands. Everyone needs to conserve this limited resource....moreless

Car: Recommended

Abundant wildlife can be enjoyed from the cabin deck including red-tailed hawks, osprey, bald eagles, deer and an occasional mink. If you are lucky you might catch a glimpse of the wild uturkeys that call the area home. At the beach, otters, seals, hawks, and heron are common sites. At night, listen to the water lap the shore and echo around the cove or the chorus of seals gathered on Shag Rock just offshore.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We are a family of five: two adults, two teenage boys and a spaniel. For our leisure time, we enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling, kayaking, sailing, skiing and backpacking. We always look forward to visiting Orcas for some of the above and much more!

Why the Owner Chose Orcas:
We were attracted to Orcas Island because of the natural beauty of the area. Additionally, the unique setting of the cabin provides intimate contact with nature, tranquility and ultimate privacy. We visit the cabin as frequently as we are able but it never seems to be quite enough.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
No phones, no city noise, no internet and you rarely see another person; but, the sights and sounds of nature are all around you! We love to launch our kayaks from the cove beach and bike/hike the rural roads and trails in the immediate area of the cabin. Orcas Island provides an assortment of hiking options from sea level trails to the mountain environment of Moran State Park and Turtleback Preserve.
