Olga House is situated in the hamlet of Olga located on Orcas Island, Washington. Orcas Island is the largest island (in sq. mi.) of the San Juan Islands, tucked between the state of Washington and Canada on the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

Olga House is a cedar home, with vaulted ceilings throughout, and towering front windows facing south. Equipped with all modern conveniences and located by pristine Buck Bay where you can boat, fish, sail, or kayak. Private buoy off of Olga Dock comes with the home.

Olga has an historic post office and a post-card perfect store (Olga Store is not open at this time). A short walk away is Orcas Island Artworks, a wonderful local arts & crafts gallery, along with a delightful cafe. Olga is a destination for islanders and visitors alike.

Moran State Park is less than 2 miles away, and features lakes, trails for walking and mountain biking. Mt. Constitution is in Moran State Park and is the highest location in the San Juan Islands.

About Paul and Leslee

Live in Portland, Oregon. We have been going to the San Juans since college - many years ago.

Paul and Leslee purchased this house in 1998

Why Paul and Leslee chose Orcas Island

One of the unique locations in the world. Located in the San Juan Island banana belt of NW United States. Incredible marine life. Olga is a picture perfect hamlet with an historic post office and the Olga Store (literally on post cards)

What makes this house unique

Grab your favorite refreshment (and company) and hang out on the dock and enjoy the absolutely spectacular view. Watch eagles fly overhead, and the ferries and sailboats in the distance, and be mesmerized by the silence at night.

Beautiful house on a gorgeous island

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Paul & Leslie for sharing your beautiful home with us. We loved the tall windows and light pouring down everywhere, the wraparound porch, the beautiful flowers in the garden ...

Since you have to drive past Moran State park to get to the house, we saw deer on the way everyday. Loved our 3 nights at the Olga house, wished we had a week there!

Perfect spot for a beautiful home and quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

This home had all the accoutrements you would need to make a fabulous fresh seafood dinner, (Buck Bay for fresh seafood) and great retreat for girlfriends to hang, take a watercolor painting class nearby, walk the dock a block away and enjoy!

Amazing island getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved spending Thanksgiving at the Olga House. Paul and Leslee were extremely accommodating, especially working around a busy ferry schedule during the holiday weekend. The house was very clean and organized in such a way where some of us could watch a movie and others could play board games. It served as an excellent home base as we went for runs, hikes and into Eastsound for meals or shopping. It was a great experience we would gladly repeat.
