  • You Will Never Want to Leave!

    "This was a warm, welcoming, and incredible place. The location is phenomenal with unimagined views of Rosario Strait. Not only are you treated to the vast, calm water and expansive views of many other islands, but also to boats, ships, and kayaks, none of which invade the intimacy and privacy of this amazing cottage on the bluff. You will also be treated to encounters with/views of eagles, dolphins, deer, hummingbirds, seals, sea lions -- all from the hot tub, the deck, or almost any room in the house. Whales are possible with patience and luck. The lush vegetation of the area and the ever-present deer become part of the house through the kitchen and bathroom windows. All windows open wide to let the house and the wondrous location merge and become one -- with or without screens at your discretion. The house is furnished exquisitely -- fully functional and with quality items. Amenities are robust including a wide range of TV/music options, wifi, laundry, and kitchen amenities. The house is a delight for those of us concerned about the fragile environment of the islands, with full recycling, green household products, and a compost toilet system. Access to the ocean for beaching, swimming, fishing, and boating is nearby. The private roads in the area are wonderful for romantic walks or family day hikes. More strenuous activity is available with Moran State Park and Mt. Constitution nearby. The carefully built and finished craftsman cottage is a perfect, intimate venue for romance and couples relaxation. Doug is the premier host and could not be more welcoming or hospitable, and returned our cleaning deposit almost before we got back home! We cannot wait to go back!"

  • Gorgeous Island Retreat

    "I've been vacationing on Lopez with family for the past 20+ years and our stay at the Channel House was far and away the best! The view and secluded beach can't be beat. The master bedroom suite and cozy living room below is an oasis when you want an escape from family. We enjoyed using the kayaks and playing badmitten in the huge yard. The 5 acres allowed plenty of room for our 3 Labradors to play and explore. The hot tub worked flawlessly and could hold 6 comfortably. Even when the weather turned, the collection of movies, games and WiFi kept us entertained for hours. The gas heat lamp on the porch and huge fire pit allowed us to relax for hours into the night. All the beds and furniture were very comfortable. Hope we can stay here again next summer!"

  • 4 Families and 1 good time had!

    "Thanks for providing a wonderful house for our use on a great island. First, the logistics...We had 8 adults and 7 kids under the age of 6. Not easy to manage but we had beds for all which was great. We were able to keep the babies isolated so they could nap and the kids had tons of room to play outside. The firepit was great for the adults in the evening to get a break. Next, the location: located walking distance to the town was great. The IGA and other restaurants provided all we needed and the location near the small airport provided a great place to visit for the kids. We were a 15 drive from anything on the island worth visiting such as Moran State Park (fresh water lake with a beach and play area), golf (the course isn't much but still fun round), Eastsound as mentioned above and the water itself. Finally the house and our host: Both were exactly what we needed. The house was cleaned professionally before our arrival and everything we needed (Wifi, rules of the house, etc) were clearly outlined. The BBQ was excellent as was the frisbee golf course and the tire swings. Some of the beds were 'soft' as per the reviews of my friends but it's an old house...what can you expect? Lots of room and a ton of fun. Thanks for a wonderful long weekend destination. Recommend for those who are looking to take 3-4 families away for a long weekend."

  • Beautiful view from a very comfortable house

    "We are a family of four and we spent a very enjoyable six nights recently at this Orcas home and came back home thoroughly well rested & energized. The house is super comfortable with all the amenities, the kitchen is well provided for and the view of the ocean from the entire house is fabulous. We could hear & see the whales go by from the deck and the scenery is breathtaking. The folks at the management company made it very easy for us to book the house and were very prompt in communicating with us. I would totally recommend anyone to book this house for a nice getaway. It is close to the beautiful parks, waterfront & beaches. The village of Eastsound is an easy 20 minute drive from the house and Mt. Constitution is about 10 mins away."
