Overview

About the property

Ideally located halfway between the Ferry Landing & Moran State Park, near Town

I have 1-2 night opening left in my August calendar at a discounted rate. it is Aug 21-22, checking out the 23rd. And there are still 2 opportunities to make ferry reservations for these dates! Book online or contact me for more details. It's not to late for an Orcas getaway this summer!

Leave your car at the house and avoid hunting for parking on the busy summer streets of Eastsound Village! Our close-to-town location provides some of the best cell and internet reception on Orcas. An easy 10 minute walk brings you to the village of Eastsound and a 5 minute walk to the beach at Waterfront Park. About a 15 minute, very scenic drive to either Moran State Park, Deer Harbor or the ferry landing. Huckleberry House is ideally located and equipped to be your Orcas Island home away from home!

From a south-facing slope, we overlook the bay beautifully filtered through huge native trees from the living, dining and loft areas.

Centrally located halfway between Moran State Park and the ferry landing, the Eastsound Village area's many restaurants, shops and activities make it an ideal home base for island visitors. A scenic 15 minute drive takes you to Moran State Park with miles of hiking trails and beautiful Cascade Lake which offers swimming, fishing and boat rentals.

Fully furnished including leather sofas, new 40' flat screen smart TV with DVD and free WIFI. A well-equipped kitchen with washer and dryer, and spacious dining area. Plus two queen bedrooms, one in an upstairs loft with a tree-filtered view of East Sound Bay. The lofted, exposed beam ceilings, and fir trim on battened walls give our charming craftsman home a bright and cozy atmosphere.

Huckleberry House is the perfect spot for a relaxing stay on Orcas in any season, or an ideal starting point for your exploration of all the San Juan Islands.

About Pamela Guyer

Pam & Steve on Cascade Lake Bridge, Moran State Park, Orcas Island

Pamela Guyer purchased this house in 2006

Why Pamela Guyer chose Orcas Island

Welcome to Huckleberry House!

We purchased it in 2006 when we were compelled by family issues to return to the mainland after a short but delightful six years of living in the islands. It was a way for us to keep our 'foot in the door' and have a place to stay while visiting the good friends we made while we lived here. The house was completely renovated inside and out shortly before we purchased it. We really enjoy the next-to-town central location. When we lived here, we were on an outer island and Eastsound was an hour away, so it's a big treat for us to be able to walk into 'town' on a whim. We love Orcas because it provides the best of both worlds; amazing outdoor scenery and activities as well as good eats and fun shops. I know you'll find our house and Orcas Island as relaxing and charming as we do.

Cheers!

What makes this house unique

May I just say location, location, location!!!

Staying right in the center of Orcas Island gives you easy access to the 'ends' of the island if you'd like to explore during your visit. And if you'd rather stay home and relax at the house, it's really nice to be so close to the village that you can easily walk or drive there in a few minutes for coffee or a little shopping or a meal or the groceries to make one back at the house.

Enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks! It was a lovely place, just the right size for our family,

and very well appointed. I like how it felt private and secluded, back in

the woods in a small cabin community, but was so close to town. We

especially loved watching the hummingbird turf wars off the deck. Also, we

heard a pair of great horned owls hooting last night, one sounded rather

close. Maybe there's a nest nearby!

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. The owners are accommodating and responsive. The home is clean and well-appointed - everything you need! A gorgeous deck with a view of the water. Quiet and secluded yet a short walk to town. The layout of the house is perfect. Would recommend to others. Thank you for a great vacation!

Perfect location and ambience

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place. Great size for us (would also be very comfortable for two couples), perfect location as we had a reunion in Eastbound, close to shops, etc, nice view of the water through the trees, quiet, all the comforts and conveniences, well-organized for easy use of everything, and the decor was so fitting for the island - thoughtful pieces, not kitschy or cluttered. It was a memorable respite for us.

Perfect for our family

  • 4 of 5

This little house doesn't look like much on the outside but is just adorable inside, with a small livingroom, dining area and kitchen, as well as a separate bedroom downstairs and open loft upstairs. Our girls slept together in the upstairs queen - and loved the room - while we took the lower room. It was just perfect for us and a very short walk to EastSound. My only negative would be that we thought the house was closer to the water and the road is a little noisy and busy - I didn't really feel like walking to East Sound because the road is a little sketchy to walk on with kids so we drove what would be a 10 min walk. Really nice place overall!

What an amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our overall visit. The house could not have been in a more perfect location. The amount of details the owners put into the house to ensure our comfort and ease of everything was above and beyond. In fact, we loved the house and Orcas so much, we all were so sad to leave. This will definitely be our go-to vacation spot and house for our new family tradition!

The people on Orcas Island were so welcoming and friendly, I couldn't believe it. The lavender just filled the air and was so fresh! We had an amazing dinner at New Leaf Cafe and the Brown Bear Baking is just a dangerous place to go! We stopped in three times! 😬 Sticky buns, cookies, muffins and sandwiches.....YUMM!

What a perfect vacation, perfect house, the scenery was amazing. We went over the Fourth of July and could see the fireworks from the house deck right there from Eastsound.

Thank you to the owners for a wonderful experience! You guys were great to work with and your house is beautiful!

Centrally Located Cozy Craftsman Cottage on Orcas

  • 5 of 5

Huckleberry House is a great base for exploring Orcas. It is a very short walk into Eastsound which is a charming little town and a short drive to Moran State Park and Lake Crescent which is excellent for kayaking and hiking. Check out the food co-op - it's really good. We happened to be there as summer started and enjoyed the local flair of the Summer Solstice parade, which was fun!!! The accommodations are comfortable, well-appointed, and the kitchen is well-equipped. We loved sitting on the deck enjoying the view while having breakfast and happy hour. The velvet Buck visited us each morning and evening. We'd recommend a stay at Huckleberry House!
