Overview

About the property

10 min walk to town, 5 to beach! 1/2way between Ferry Landing & Moran State Park

Our convenient location can't be beat! An easy 10 minute walk brings you to the village of Eastsound and a 5 minute walk to the beach at Waterfront Park. Crescent Beach is also less than a mile from the house. 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 for relaxing!

Huckleberry House was near town and the east sound. We spent time hiking, kayaking exploring the beaches and whale watching. The house was well stocked and comfortable.

Great location and very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

There were four of us that stayed for 3 days. The cabin was extremely well stocked and the location was perfect. We all agreed that it was just right for the 4 of us. Having one bathroom with 4 people even worked just fine!! It was nice to be able to walk to Eastsound Village.

The only reason this review is a 4 star and not a 5 star is because there is some traffic and airplane noise. Other than that is was great!

Comfortable cozy house in the woods

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home perfect for a family or two couples. Nice short walk to town. Relaxing spot and nicely furnished. No cable tv and wifi can be slow at times. So be sure to bring DVDs for the bed room tv or a good book to read. Perfect little deck for BBQ or a morning cup of coffee with a peckaboo view of the water.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind comments about our great walk-to-town location and I'm so happy you found the size to be perfect for your family! When visiting Orcas, it helps to remember that our beautiful island's remote location often causes slower internet speeds than you're used to on the mainland. The situation is the same island-wide. And while we don't provide or advertise cable TV, many of our guests are happy to access their Netflix, Hulu, etc, accounts with our smart TV! Additionally, we provide two DVD players, one in the living room and a second in the main floor bedroom. You can bring your favorites along or rent something new from our local dvd rental/used book store in Eastsound Village. There's a lot of information in our VRBO listing about what's included at the house. If there are specific amenities that would make or break your Orcas getaway, please reach out with any questions and I'll be happy to answer!
