Incredibly Special Stay in Beautiful Location with All the Comforts of Home
"We stayed at this beautiful home over the Thanksgiving holiday week and want to give it our very highest recommendation. The property has a lovely view looking out over the water -- in short, staying there is "good for the soul." The house is equipped with all necessities, a terrific Franklin stove (with plenty of firewood) and gorgeous floor to ceiling windows, in the Lindall prow design. Every morning when we woke up -- the view, and the peace and quiet just took our breath away. There is also a terrific hot tub, and we even had an eagle fly over us while we were soaking away. The beach is just a short walk away and whenever we went down to the headland, we would see harbor seals just a few yards away. There is lots to do on Orcas Island, but we found little reason to leave. Suffice it to say, we had a memorable holiday, but in addition, the owners, Anita and Conrad were the best !! They were always helpful and immediately responsive. We had travel issues and at every turn, Anita found a way to make things work out for us. We want to thank Anita and Conrad for sharing their home and helping our family create lifelong memories."

"Everything was so comfortable and welcoming. The patio with the grill was absolutely wonderful for preparing meals - including some fresh clams from the island! Delicious! It was great that there were so many kitchen supplies for us. We would absolutely recommend this place for anyone looking for a rejuvenating getaway."

"Wow, this house was so great. I loved everything about it. Beautiful, clean property, and the two level layout was great. Kitchen was very well-appointed, the fireplaces were great. The location is great - very private and cozy. Couldn't have asked for anything better!"

"Ah....honestly, we have not stopped talking about our wonderful stay at Delongview. We had four glorious days and nights over mid-winter break at this special getaway. We were blessed with the mild winter days, which also led to starlit nights we were able to enjoy from the comfort of the sofa while gazing out the enormous skylight. Nearly everything you could need is in the house, and if you cannot find it it 1) you have not looked hard enough or, 2) you will find something else that will be a fine substitute. The only exception is if you are traveling with small children, you will want to bring your own equipment and entertainment for them. The movie, game, and book selection is definitely geared for adults, but we were prepared and brought what we needed. As it turns out, the kids ended up chasing each other around in circles in the large great room and kept themselves entertained for many hours doing so! It was a great set up because we could keep an eye on them while still relaxing or while making our meals. The slate floors were definitely very efficient at heating the house - as some have stated almost too efficient, but it also enabled us to just open the doors and let in the fresh air. I have debated whether to suggest an upgrade to the electronics as the TV, while indeed has a flat screen, is not a flat screen TV, and is rather dated. However, the point of spending time at a home like this is that you get away from the electronics. Instead we listened to music on the CD player - had dance parties, and enjoyed our time together without everyone staring at the TV. The wi-fi worked great There was a good selection of books and puzzles for adults. The house was nearly immaculate and I felt comfortable just settling right in without worry that the house needed cleaning. The trees have grown some since the photos were taken, so the water views were not as expansive as the photos seem to indicate, but this did not inhibit the magnificent sunrises from every room in the house. My only complaint is actually my own fault in that I waited until our second night to try out the tub, thus delaying by a day my full relaxation. All I can say is ahhhhhhhhh!!!!! Now I want one too! Caution though - all you need is one or two squirts of the bath gel for MORE than an ample amount of bubbles! Many thanks to Donna for sharing her wonderful home with all it's comforts and special touches. We hope to return sometime soon!"
