About the Property

6 Bedroom Estate + convertible bed(s), Main House, Guest House, (Sleeps 6 - 12)

** Member of VRBO since 2011 with secure bookings through Orcas Oasis **
*** New 100 Mbps Broadband service ***

This 14 acre secluded estate on the top of Scott Hill is truly an oasis. Enjoy the 3,400 feet of main house living space with gourmet kitchen, vaulted beam ceilings, 3 bedrooms, plus the many spacious decks - all with over 180 degrees of marine and mountain views. Then check out our spa level with the amenities like our 70-foot lap pool, fully equipped exercise room, and large hot tub.

Our guest house (with 2+ bedrooms) can accommodate additional guests. The design and accommodations are as nice as the main house - just smaller. It is close enough for your entire group to gather in the main house for meals and socializing - yet also provides a little private space.

Also available is a picnic area with fire ring and a lovely meadow with wildflowers and plenty of space to run and explore. Play a game of horseshoes or relax in a hammock next to our ponds while you listen to birds sing.

Minimum Stay: 2 to 5 nights. Varies by season.
Maximum Occupancy: 6 to 12 guests. Contact owner with any questions.

Rate Information:

*Our rates are based on the total number of bedrooms required during your stay.
*Our Rates page shows base rate and number of bedroom included. Additional bedrooms may be added. Each bedroom is considered to be double occupancy.

During the quiet season (within 30 days of arrival), it is possible to rent our guest house only with use of hot tub & lap pool for approximately 60% of the cost. Contact Owner for any questions on pricing.

Car: Recommended

1 mile from the Orcas Ferry landing. Google Maps (or your car's G.P.S.) should be accurate from ferry landing to Orcas Oasis. But don't count on GPS to find your way around Orcas as the maps often do not show Orcas local roads accurately.

We are 1 miles from a great grocery store, marina, restaurant, kayak tours, tour boats to see Orca whales, and coffee shop. We are 2 miles from Westsound village and about 7 miles from Eastsound.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Bob & Barb moved from Minnesota to be close to the ocean and to sail. We bought a great 40ft racing sailboat and spent much of the last 18 years in competitive racing in the Pacific NW. We purchased 16 acres on the top of Scott Hill in the Victorian Valley and built a custom home and guest home designed by renowned local Architect Roy Lundgren.

Why the Owner Chose Orcas, WA, USA:
We built on the Scott Hill location due to its peaceful seclusion and the fantastic marine views to the SE, South, West ans NW. We also never tire of the year-round great sunsets. We built on Orcas Island because of its location -- on the water and close enough to the mountains for convenient skiing without living in the snow. We also love the weather. Orcas has short winters that rarely get snow, cherry blossoms in February and March, sunny summers, and generally moderate temperatures.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Privacy with expansive marine and mountain views, bird songs in a peaceful setting, camp fires in the woods, relaxing in the hot tub, swimming in the indoor 70-foot lap pool, and exercise facilities so you don't feel too decadent enjoying all the other amenities.
