  • Lovely, comfortable and right in town

    "We really enjoyed the beachy elegance and comfort, with everything you needed, right in town, yet a beautiful view of, and right on the beach. We were able to walk to everything in town (only needed a car for nearby parks) We are take care of yourself kinda of people and really appreciated that, yet great customer service when I needed it. Would highly recommend!"

  • Perfect Get Away at a Great Value

    "I had the great pleasure of staying at the Crow's Nest in early November. It was my first time on Orcas Island and I couldn't have asked for a better location, more comfortable stay, or more convenient arrangements. The Nest is just that, a perfect little nest for one or two people. The Nest is spacious with lots of natural light and windows/french doors with amazing views of the bay...you can even watch the seaplanes land and approach the nearby marina. The whole place feels clean and cozy. I was traveling in the off season so it wasn't busy at any of the places I visited....but the weather was wonderful and the air crisp and the skies clear. Don't be put off by fall in the Pacific Northwest. Having the private deck overlooking everything in the bay was a special treat (the fishmonger was stationed at the dock during my visit - a tasty treat for fish lovers!!) You can even look out at the bay from the bed!! The morning sounds and light are just wonderful. The Nest is well situated to all locations on the Island. However, the immediate area isn't busy with tourists once the ferry traffic heading to Deer Harbor disperses. Having said that, if you are looking to go out to breakfast or dinner in the off season, be prepared to drive to the East Sound or to the Orcas Hotel. Some options are dinner only, and in some cases only on the weekends. But, to be fair, this is totally understandable as it's the low tourist season. The Crow's Nest owners are great to work with and make everything so simple and convenient. It's the perfect getaway for adventures on/around the island(s), a romantic weekend, or a quiet locale for sitting back with a great glass of wine, a good book, and an amazing view. The gas fireplace/stove is an added perk to chase away the slight chill in the fall and night air. I almost hate writing this review because I don't want this gem to be spoiled by constant bookings....but it should be shared. The prices are beyond fair. Unless you are expecting the Four Seasons and want someone to wait on you, you won't be disappointed. The owners have created the perfect little oasis on the Island. In short, it fit my needs perfectly in every way."

  • Excellent!

    "We stayed in the deluxe town home with 8 people. It was very comfortable and a ton of fun. We loved hanging out on the outdoor deck, which offers plenty of seating for everyone. We enjoyed hanging out at the fire pit, pool and hot tub. We are looking forward to many more trips to Smugglers Villa. Thanks for a wonderful stay and beautiful memories."
