West Sound house description

Welcome to Orcas Island an enchanting destination for a harmonious holiday. An island where the natural allure of a region rich with plush Evergreen forests, picturesque valleys, and panoramic vistas preserves a pastoral style of living. All the while, encompassed by the sights and sounds of the bountiful waters of the San Juan Islands.
Abandon the chaotic pace of life on the mainland and join us for a blissful hiatus. Summerset Hill is a splendid hand-crafted log home hewn and polished from Cedar trees on the seven acre property by local craftsmen. Comfortably furnished in the tradition of Vintage Farmhouse and well-appointed 'The Cabin' offers a grand open floor plan with full kitchen amenities, two spacious downstairs bedrooms, a cozy attic bedroom, and one full/two half baths readily accommodating up to eight guests.
The large covered porch and open garden patio lend the perfect venue for Pacific North West outdoor dining rain or shine. The property is abundant with wildlife specifically; deer, eagles, owls, turkey hawks, and red-headed woodpeckers.
Thank you for considering Summerset Hill as your holiday home in the San Juan Islands.

          About: We cherish family, friends, & sharing adventures with both. There is nothing we like more than whipping up delicious fresh foods for an evening of conversation & laughter. We enjoy the natural beauty of flora & fauna, sunsets & beaches, snow & springtime. Dividing our time between the Toronto area, cottage country, & Orcas Island provides us the opportunity to partake in the activities we relish like boating, sailing, wake boarding, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, biking, flying, snowmobiling, snowboarding, skiing, & attempting to surf. Travel and exploring new destinations, cultures, and culinary experiences are also on our list of priorities.
