Eastsound cottage description

Our cottage doesn't offer views of the ocean, but what it does offer is a view of it's own private pond with a bridge unlike any other you've seen. The background beyond the pond is a beautiful view of Turtleback Mountain. 'Our Place' provides peace and serenity on a 6 1/2 acre parcel at the end of a private road in a secluded and quiet wooded setting. The best sunset's on Orcas can be seen from West beach less than a mile away.

          • Pets Considered:

            Well behaved pets by permission only, no pets on furniture please. Property is not fenced. We don't feel its right to charge everyone who brings their pet(s) an extra cleaning fee, especially when no extra cleaning is necessary. Every pet owner knows rather or not their pet(s) shed hair, and if extra cleaning will be needed to ensure none of their pet(s) hair remains in the home. Otherwise, if you, as a pet owner, feel you are constantly struggling with pet hairs in your own home, then extra care will be needed to clean our home. We ask our pet owner's to make us aware that extra cleaning will be needed and to pay an extra cleaning fee of $50. Please note, this fee is charged on a honor system. However, if it is not brought to our attention and we feel extra cleaning was necessary, then this charge will be deducted from the pet owner's refundable deposit. ...moreless

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: Dan was born and raised on Orcas. His family homesteaded here in the late 1800's. Angela moved here from Utah nearly 20 years ago. We both raised our children here on the island and now they too are living here and raising their own children.

              Why the Owner Chose Eastsound:
              It's southwest exposure offers sun all day and beautiful sunsets in the evenings. I'm partial to the west side of the island because it's the area my family settled and also it's where I've lived my entire life.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The view of the pond and bridge as you sit on the covered porch first thing in the morning will make even the rainiest day seem like bright blue skies.
