GLORIOUS MORNING SUNSHINE warms you at this compact and cozy cabin off the beaten path. Stairs lead to an interesting rock, gravel, clam-shell beach and pretty views. Walk the woods and watch for birds and deer. This cabin is a perfect reflection of rustic island living. Private but close to town and the ferry landing. Washer/dryer. Only 3.5 miles from Eastsound. Not far from the golf course if you'd like to rent a cart and clubs and play the nines!

Private and quiet
Loved the simple cabin layout and size. The setting for our quiet recharge vacation
Thank you for recognizing the value of our cabin and the beauty of its location. We truly hope you were ready to tackle the world when you got back home!
Another guest who booked directly with us at the end of August said something similar: "Hi, I thought you might like this picture of a heron fishing off the little beach. I sat and watched the heron fish for twenty minutes. Pretty fabulous. We enjoyed seeing the hermit crab nursery in the tide pools there, and the other little and big crabs and starfish. All right there in the "back yard". It was wonderfully quiet in the mornings and evenings. We were very thankful for the peaceful retreat and enjoyed exploring the island. Thanks again for your help securing the rental at the last minute. R.
Just what it says on the tin
Great little cabin, beach access, quick drive to town, wifi. Worked just fine for the two of us for a weekend; would be a bit tight for more than 4 unless you got access to the loft w/two more futons. Don't recall opting in to the cleaning fee, which upped the price a bit--would probably have still opted in, but would have been nice to have the option.
Quaint and Quiet Retreat - Just What We Needed
The cabin lived up to my expectations. There were a couple of house keeping items we needed to take care of (making the bed and a little extra cleaning of the bathroom floor) which I anticipated that based on the description. The place is somewhat rustic but cozy with modern amenities. Sunrise at the shore was awesome and only a short walk from the cabin. Karen (the property manager) is super nice and easy to work with. The location is convenient to town and to the sites (Moran State Park/Mount Constitution to the east; Deer Harbor/West Sound to the west).
I would definitely consider booking this property again.
Thanks for sharing your happy Orcas experience.
The bathroom floor should not have needed extra cleaning.
My apologies for that. Come see us again for some peace and quiet!
Peaceful Retreat - Beautiful View
RESERVE your spot on the FERRY as soon as you can. Although we booked 3 weeks early, the only ferry available was the first run of the day, both coming and going - 6:45 a.m. Inconvenient since check-in is at 4:00 p.m. and leaving at 5:00 a.m. on the last day was a bummer. We had to ensure we were ready to go the night before since you have to drive into town to drop keys and then back-track to the ferry.
Karen was very nice to work with. We went to the office when we arrived to get the keys, but they didn't open until 10:30, so we went exploring. There is no shortage of things to see and do on this magical island. We wandered back to town around noon and was delighted when we were told we could check in early.
The cabin was the perfect size for the two of us. Cell phone service was poor, one bar and roaming. There is a little TV, but unless you want to shop, catch a sermon, or care to watch Tokyo, don't bother - no news. That of course, was not why we were here. The only reason we are not giving 5 stars is, the washing machine was broken and the only toilet paper was the one on the roll (didn't realize that until the last evening and stores were closed already). Also, in the contract where it discusses trash, it said a kitchen bag and a black bag would be provided, there were none. It may seem nit-picky, but it was important as we are scrambling to get packed and clean up for our early departure.
We enjoyed sitting on the deck and walking down to the beach during low tide. There are starfish and little crabs, hummingbirds and eagles to watch. The view of the sound is breathtaking.
We would definitely book again and can't wait to come back to this enchanted island.
The rustic cabin was perfect!
Location was great, the cabin was well stocked, cleaning and cooking with sulfur water was a wonderful experience and relaxing outside with views of the Eastsound waters and the otters and birds was fantastic!! The scenery was amazing and the clean fresh air was a real welcome!
Communication with Karen, directions, etc. worked well-we definitely recommend this cabin!
Very peaceful little green cabin lived up to it's advertisement
Very quiet location and only a few steps to a grassy knoll with a cute little bench overlooking the sound. Another short path with steps led down to the beach. Small planes flew overhead but didn't bother us. Kitchen was equipped with the necessities and we really appreciated the washer/dryer. Because the water tasted of sulphur, we purchased bottled water for drinking and cooking. Although there is sleeping space for more, I believe it would have felt cramped with more than two adults. I'm sure this cabin is cozy in the winter with the wood-burning stove. Cell service at the cabin was sporadic and no internet for us. There was a TV with a handful of channels but that's not what we came for. Loved the location - a couple miles off the main road connecting the ferry and Eastsound. (Eastsound was about 10 minutes by car). Our envelope with keys and great instructions for finding the property was right where the Property Manager said it would be, and she even made accommodations for an issue we had when it was time to leave Orcas. We were very happy with the cabin and absolutely loved Orcas Island. What a wonderful introduction to the San Juan Islands!
Thanks for taking the time to share your happy Orcas experience.
The little cabin is such a beautiful spot and we're glad you found it that way too.
Come see us again.
