About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms (Sleeps 4) 1 Bath (for shower only)
Beautiful custom 4-season home with stunning view perched on a mountainside at 1,000 ft. above Rosario Straight near Moran State Park, with unobstructed views to the south and east . The multi-level wrap-around deck provides many angles from which to take in the scenery, watching either the sunrise or the orange glow of sunset reflected on the snow covered slopes of Mt. Baker or bare cliffs of Cypress Island. Full moons are mesmerizing here as they rise and reflect on the water. The house is enjoyable throughout the year from hunkering down with a fire during storm season to expanded living spaces outdoors during the warmer months. The house was built and designed for contemporary function with a rustic feel. It is well equipped with many modern comforts for the enjoyment of your short or long-term stay, such as Wi-Fi, flat screen TV and Blue-Ray DVD player, stainless kitchen appliances such as a Miele dishwasher, Thermador range, side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, microwave oven, TV in bunk room with built-in DVD and VHS players, and the log-framed king size bed is an extra perk.
The character cabinetry is locally made from recycled wood and is built-in throughout the house. The vaulted ceilings covered with pine, the log interior posts and wood beams blend well with outside surroundings. This house is located on 20 mostly forested acres that is shared by the owner's main house. Both homes enter/exit the property on a mutually shared driveway that splits off to each house.
The kitchen is stocked with a full set of Circulon pots and pans as well as Cuisinart stainless steel, and casserole cookware. Several pyrex bowls and pans include lids for storage. Everything listed including dishes, glassware, eating, and cooking utensils were purchased new for the cabin and are in great condition. Additional bed and bath linens can be provided for longer stays. Flannel sheets are kept on the beds during the Fall and Winter along with down alternative comforters and quilts.
Telescope is available for terrestrial and celestial viewing. Table-top art easels are available for those who might like to paint or draw - so bring your supplies! The picnic table on the deck in front of the living room is a great place to express your inner artist.
Orcas Island has many hiking trails. Several are located only a few miles away in Moran State Park. The public beach area at Cascade Lake has peddle and row boat rentals during the Summer. The park also has sheltered areas that can be reserved for large parties that contain big, stone fireplaces and wood stoves (also enjoyable in the Fall and Winter). Hiking is open year-round at the park. Nearby Obstruction Pass State Park has trails leading down to a beach area.
People that enjoy staying in this peaceful and secluded house treasure the commanding view that looks out to acres of evergreen trees, water, islands, and mountains in the distance. Although the house is remote, Eastsound is only a 7 mile drive. There one will find several restaurants, shops, gas stations, a movie theater, and a large grocery store. In the opposite direction are restaurants in Olga and Doe Bay and Obstruction Pass State Park.
This property is an approximate 30 minute drive from the ferry landing and approximately 15 minutes from Eastsound.
Available upon request: wildcrafting / tincture workshop of some local medicinal plants. Supplies provided. $50 per person
