Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

A charming second floor studio apartment in beautiful West Sound at the base of Turtleback Mountain. Enjoy fabulous water views from your private deck.

West Sound's public beach, county dock, and yacht club are just across the street.

Stairs to the beach are just steps away for launching kayaks and other water sports.

The studio features a very comfortable queen bed, crisp, clean linens and fluffy pillows for a great night sleep.

Newly remodeled bathroom with a full tub and shower. Shampoo, conditioner & body wash provided.

32" flat screen with satellite TV.

There is a love seat and ottoman for relaxation, watching TV, or just reading a book in front of the gas fireplace.

French doors lead to the private deck for taking in the spectacular view!

The kitchenette is stocked with a small fridge, microwave, Keurig coffee maker (including a great selection of coffee & tea), dishes and glassware.

(Please note that there are no pots and pans provided)

Our dining table seats 4.

The Crow's Nest is located only 5 minutes from the Orcas ferry landing and 10 minutes to the village of Eastsound. Kenmore Air flies from Seattle to West Sound several times a day by float plane from Lake Union or land plane to the Eastsound airport from Boeing Field.

If you need a rental car, Orcas Island Shuttle has cars and mini vans.

Moran State Park has 5 beautiful lakes and 35 miles of trails for hiking and biking.

While in the park, don't miss the summit of Mt. Constitution. Climb the tower for endless views at 2409'.

Turtleback Mt. is literally in your backyard for another incredible hike.

There are many great dining options on Orcas Island. We would be happy to help with recommendations and reservations.

You can find rentals for sea kayaks, mountain bikes, and even mopeds for further adventures.

Don't miss an opportunity to go on one of our Whale Watching Tours. Truly breathtaking!

Beautiful view of Deer Harbor.

  • 4 of 5

Clean, well supplied and in an accessible location about 8 minutes from the ferry. Four stars because I could never actually get in touch with the contact listed.

Such a cozy get away !

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The room was comfortable and warm, and the view of the ocean from our balcony was such a great place to relax in the warmth of the sun.

Nice view but little else

  • 1 of 5

Very, very small and there was a two burner stove but no pots or pans to cook in. Outside stairs to get to entrance quite steep and long. OK but would not stay there again.

Owner's Response: So sorry your stay was not satisfactory. I believe we clearly state that our Studio apartment is on the second floor and that there are no pots and pans provided. Hope you have a better experience next time!

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

The deck and the view make this place. I really enjoyed eating my breakfast and reading in the morning and early evening sun. The interior is cozy and just the right size for one or two people. I would happily stay here again!
