Moran State Park- Ranked among Top 20 Hikes in the West

Travel & Leisure 2016

Ranked #5- Best of North American Islands

Recently voted one of the world’s most exciting ferry rides your trip to the San Juan Islands promises beautiful views of mountains, forests and a close connection to the ocean. Glimpses of Orca Whales, Harbor Seals, Porpoises, and Sea Lions are not uncommon. Moderate temperatures make the islands ideal for all kinds of activities such as boating, fishing, kayaking and hiking. There’s no place more beautiful for recreation, relaxation and rejuvenation.

Enjoy spectacular sunsets from the deck of our beautiful home located in the VERY POPULAR Rosario area. Just 1.5 miles finds you at the entrance to Moran State Park with 5 lakes, hiking trails and Mt. Constitution. 2 miles in the other direction and you are at the beach front at Rosario Resort.

The open floor plan, skylights, and southern exposure make this very comfortable and modern home light and airy.

The large master suite boasts a jetted tub and private access to the west facing deck. Step out on the deck and enjoy your morning coffee. With a separate full bath and queen bed in the guest room, this home is perfect for two couples. But a sleeping sofa in the living room will provide for a larger group.

On your visit to our home on BEAUTIFUL ORCAS ISLAND you can enjoy Directv on our two new High Definition TV's. We also have a well stocked game closet and selection of DVDs as well as an I-Pod Dock for your listening pleasure. HIGH SPEED INTERNET with a WiFi router makes it possible for our guests to access the internet from the comfort of our home or even from the relaxing deck.

PET FRIENDLY!! Even your family pet will feel welcome! The deck leads to a fenced in area for your dog to have some off leash freedom. Rosario Heights is open to visits for one or two dogs.

With our home located on a quiet private road, this rural area and close proximity to the park often has visits from local deer.

Not a half mile is the trail that circles Cascade Lake. Rosario Heights is a wonderful place for a hiker to hang his hat. Walk out the door for the five mile circuit around Cascade Lake in Moran State Park. Enjoy a swimming beach not 2 miles away.

Nearby several trail heads are marked. These silvan paths lead to the trail that circles Cascade Lake in Moran State Park. Some of the parks trails are available to cyclists.

You can also hike or drive down the hill to Rosario Resort to find a waterfront beach near Cascade Marina, again not 2 miles from Rosario Heights.

Enjoy dining at the Mansion Restaurant at Rosario. In addition to this world class restaurant, there is an incredible lounge with a separate dining menu. Children are permitted in the lounge but not at the bar itself.

In nearby Eastsound there are wonderful places to enjoy Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.

Charming Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic place to stay on Orcas Island. The house has breathtaking views, great location and everything you need to have a relaxing getaway. We barely used the kitchen, but it was stocked with EVERYTHING! I've never seen a rental home with that much stuff in the kitchen. With a nice BBQ and outdoor table on the deck you don't need anything else. Speaking of food, this house is centrally located to the best places to eat. Quick, easy drives (or nice bike rides) to Inn at Ship Bay, Doe Bay Cafe, Rosario Mansion, and Roses Cafe. The house is sandwiched between Moran State Park and Rosario Resort--does it get any better than that?!? The ultimate bonus was being able to bring our beagle Buster. He's a well seasoned traveler and has particular taste for a dog, ha ha! The fully fenced yard and deck, combined with all the deer and bunnies, made him a very happy guest. Only suggestion I have is put a king size bed in the master bedroom. My partner and I are really tall and haven't slept in a queen size bed in ages. That was the only uncomfortable part of our stay. Other than that we had an amazing getaway in the peace, tranquility, beauty and mindblowing food scene of Orcas. Thank you Rick & Alexandra for sharing your lovely home with us! We'll be back!

Comfortable home on a quiet street with wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 6 day stay at this fabulous home. It is located near Rosario on Orcas Island and is a short drive to Moran State Park with a variety of hiking trails to suit all tastes. The home is well maintained (obviously loved by it's owners) and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is in a quiet neighborhood and has a lovely view of the sound. The local deer are abundant and seem comfortable with people. Two were there to greet us on our arrival.

Pets are allowed and there is a fenced area on the side of the home for them to go outside.

The master bedroom is spacious with a comfortable bed, plenty of dresser storage and a walk in closet. The attached bathroom has a jacuzzi tub and separate shower.

Other sleeping options are the second bedroom (mattress not as comfortable) and a pull out sofa in the living room (comfortable) which gives you a spectacular morning view.

We loved our stay and are so grateful to the owners for sharing it with us!!

It will surpass your expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This house is one of our favorite vacation homes. It’s peaceful, scenic and with plenty of things to do. The water views are fantastic from both inside the home and from the large deck. And it’s perfectly located in one of the most popular areas of Orcas, the Rosario area.

We enjoyed leisurely walks on the quiet private road. And often walked

or drove to the Rosario Resort for a great meal or just to walk along the beach. We also drove to Moran State Park. Plus the drive to the top of Mt. Constitution is incredible and the views at the top are breath taking.

We found the house very clean and relaxing place to stay.

The owners are very helpful and friendly. They quickly responded to all our questions even before we booked and went out of their way to make sure we had a great time!!

The online photos don’t do this home justice. It is beautifully decorated, very warm and inviting. We didn’t bring our pet but it would be great with or without pets.

This was the 2nd time we stayed at here and we plan to return later this year. If you have a chance to visit beautiful Orcas Island, we highly recommend this wonderful home.

Outstanding experience

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed this gorgeous property and world class views Spent several summers on Orcas while in high school & enjoyed visiting my old haunts.

As an avid trail runner, was pleasantly surprised to find immediate access to the Moran State Park trail system & enjoyed several early morning runs in the pristine old growth forests and associated flora, fauna and wildlife

Many thanks to the very accommodating owners with providing every possible feature culminating in an overall outstanding experience ......we WILL be back

With regards

Beautiful atmosphere!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great and relaxing time at this property. We were pleasantly surprised that the home was so well stocked with supplies for the guests. We enjoyed the barbecue and the beautiful view. I would recommend a better bed frame for the 2nd bedroom, one without wheels so it doesn't move around and affixing the headboard. I would love to come back one day and would recommend to others. :)
