  • Perfect! Private! Quiet! Excellent Value!

    "We had a few days where we both had time off together, a rare thing these days. I suggested we head up to Orcas, as it had been about 16 years since we last were there, and the weather looked promising. Found this little place, and it was available. Contacted them and booked it, then headed on out there. When we checked in it was a pleasant surprise. There is a non profit environmental group downstairs, so there are no other people around. The room is perfectly appointed, very clean, and has many things that we did not expect. There is a Keurig coffee machine complete with a great selection of K-cups. The kitchenette had everything we needed to have coffee in the morning, and fix a light breakfast. (No pots and pans, as the owners feel that the smells and mess from that type of food prep may be a problem. OK by us though, as we had lunch and dinner out each day.) The TV was perfect, HD Direct service. There is also high speed internet for those who simply cannot leave the virtual world behind. The bed was also excellent, like sleeping on a cloud. Not too firm, not too soft, just right. There is a gas fireplace if it gets too chilly at night, makes for a very cozy atmosphere. The bathroom and shower were just like at home. Everything we needed was there, large and soft fluffy towels, washcloths, hand towels, even soap in the sink and the shower had a dispenser with body wash, shampoo and conditioner! The view of the bay and marina is nice, although the local power and cable companies need to bury their stuff to clean it up some. No worries though, I can clone that stuff out in Photoshop later! There is a restaurant next door, the West Sound Café. Great food, but the service was a bit slow. But on Orcas everything is close, only a short drive away. And if you come by boat there is a public dock a very short walk away, about 150 yards. You can put in your kayak right there if that is your thing. We will bring ours the next time we come out there. It is also a great starting point for bicycling. Yes, the Crow's Nest is the perfect getaway for a couple that likes a quiet and private place to stay on the island, and the price was reasonable too. So the next time you stay on Orcas, give it a try. You will not be disappointed. We will definitely stay there again!"

  • Epic vacation

    "My friends and I spent a fantastic week at this house over the fourth of July weekend. It was truly magical! There was plenty of adventure and relaxing things to do on the island during the day. At night, we were all just captivated by the fantastic views from the upper deck. We spent so many evenings out there around the fire and it never got old! On the last night, I don't think anyone slept inside, instead just falling asleep under the stars! The inside is fantastic too... spacious, well kept and perfect for a large group (we had eight adults at the peak). The decks and view, though, are what makes this property a perfect ten!"

  • Beautiful views and very nicely kept property

    "Our family of four recently spent three nights here while attending the wedding of our friends on Lummi Island. We had never been to the Island before and very much enjoyed our stay. The property is very well kept and maintained, and the views from the large deck are gorgeous. We saw many birds from the deck and enjoyed the tranquillity of the property. There is a very small lake with a grassy area, picnic tables and a cabana that is a short drive from the property that is accessible to guests. Our children (3 and 5) enjoyed a morning swimming and playing at the lake. The kitchen in the house was very well outfitted with dishes, cooking utensils, cutlery, etc. which made it easy to prepare meals. My one caution for families with young children is that there are many fine knick-knacks and collectables around the house so I would recommend doing a quick "child proofing" sweep before letting the kids loose. :)"

  • Wedding in Roche

    "This place was incredible. We had a group of 9 guys that were attending a wedding in roche harbor and the place was spacious enough for us. Everyone that visited the house want to move in and call it home. The vaulted ceilings, outdoor patio, and great décor made this place amazing. On top of the housing, the staff allowed us to arrive early because we got in on a earlier ferry. The kayaks were great for daytime activity and the hot tub and fire pit were amazing at night. I would definitely stay here again."
