About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths house with beautiful sea views (Sleeps 7)

Aurora House is a wonderful northwest style solid cedar home with soaring ceiling and a wall of windows. End of a country road privacy guarantees a quiet, relaxing vacation. A huge deck with a gas BBQ and 6 person hot tub look out over the ocean. The deck is also a great spot to view deer, otter, seals, sea lions and eagles. One lot away you will find a serene park with a trail and steps leading to a peaceful cove beach.

Both the downstairs bedroom and the loft master bedroom have queen beds and a stunning water view. The third bedroom features a bunk bed with double and single beds. We offer wi-fi for your laptop, satellite TV, and plenty of movies and books. We also provide a playpen for the youngsters.

We are 4.5 miles from Eastsound and 8.3 miles from Moran State Park with its many trails, lakes and Mount Constitution. Mountain Lake and Cascade Lake offer fishermen the opportunity for catching rainbow and cutthroat trout, kokane and bass. You can also book an ocean charter for silver salmon fishing. Favorite activities are kayaking, hiking, biking, and golf. Be sure to take a whale watching trip or board the inter-island ferry to the scenic and historic town of Friday Harbor or one of the other nearby islands. Another ferry can take you to Vancouver Island where you can catch a bus to the charming city of Victoria.

Bike and kayak rentals are available in the village or at the ferry landing. Well marked and scenic island hikes range from easy loop trails to all day strenuous mountain climbs. The village offers shopping, movies, a playhouse, coffee shops, bakeries, and many fine restaurants.

Just bring your clothes and groceries; everything else is provided for you. Spend your holidays in one of the most beautiful spots in the world. We know you will have a great time!

Cozy, beautiful views and well-appointed home

  • 5 of 5

We appreciated that this vacation rental was exactly as depicted on HomeAway. The tranquility of this spot was exactly what we hoped for, many hours spent in the hottub, watching boats and wildlife. Deer frequently stroll through the yard, and we were happy with the stocked firewood for rainy day hours we spent reading in front of the indoor wood stove.

There are ample towels, warm blankets, a nice kitchen and outdoor bbq. Although secluded, we could be at Island restaurants and the grocery store in ten minutes.

Hope to visit Orcas again and would definitely recommend staying here! Happy travels.

Wonderful

Spacious yes cozy feeling home with a great view. Very clean and well stocked with any items we might need to cook with. Relaxing in the hot tub and enjoying the beautiful view of the water was my favorite part of this stay. Nothing short of wonderful.

Soak in the Views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with our 3 grown children stayed here for a long weekend. Everything we needed to be comfortable was in the home. The kids cooked for us during this weekend and they had no complaints about not having everything they needed in the kitchen. And outside the home was amazing. Most of the time was spent on the back deck soaking in the views. The view is absolutely beautiful! My only suggestion would be to stay longer then a 3 day weekend. We did get up to Mt. Constitution and also did a kayaking tour, went to a local brewery which was a fun spot. Definitely would have liked to have more time, however, to explore more of the islands.

Orcas Island's peaceful, laid back vibe is nicely balanced by a thriving arts community, award-winning restaurants, boutiques, cafes, galleries, and a history museum. The abundant outdoor activities combined with a backdrop of stunning natural beauty and temperate climate make this Pacific Northwest island a very special place.
