Overview

About the property

Cottage + Guest House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Crescent Beach Cottage is a beautiful, hand-crafted, European-style cottage plus small guest house affectionately named “the Outback” directly across the street from the best walking beach on Orcas Island, and just a short walk from the picturesque village of Eastsound. Built by one of the best custom homes builders on the island, the cottage is truly heaven on earth. Reclaimed beams from Wisconsin, French doors from Singapore, teak floors, and a mix of contemporary and European antique furnishings create a warm and welcoming feeling the moment you enter the cottage. Stunning views from every window let in light and magic. Enjoy the fragrant, flower-filled garden, relax on the patio overlooking the pond and bird sanctuary behind the cottage, or watch the waves on the beach from the living room and dining room.

The main Cottage, with one queen bedroom and a twin fold-out chair in a nook off of the bedroom, sleeps 3 and is an ideal destination for memorable vacations and celebrations, or quiet retreats. The owner has furnished the cottage with beautiful art and comfortable furniture meant to be lived in and loved. The living room is a welcoming place to sit and talk, read a book or watch TV or DVD’s. The galley kitchen adjoins the living room and is an ideal space to create meals with all the appliances and amenities needed to cook up something wonderful. The dining room is a great place to enjoy a meal or write your best-selling novel as it looks directly onto the beach. The spacious master bedroom features a queen bed and a wood burning stove, flanked by leather armchairs and ottomans. A small study off the master bedroom is the perfect place to curl up with a book or simply watch the wildlife in and around the pond. The study also has a large comfy chair that folds out into a twin bed.

There’s a high definition 33” plasma flat panel TV (basic channels), DVD player, high speed wireless internet, a CD player with CD library and I-Pod docking speaker system. A smaller TV is in the master bedroom.

If you have a larger party than 3, a separate guest house (The Outback), connects to the main cottage by a flagstone patio and sleeps 2 featuring a bedroom with a queen bed, dresser, bedside table, small TV, and a large bathroom. The Outback provides an ideal, private escape for a second couple, friends or family members you'd like to bring along, including children who are old enough to sleep in a close but separate building. The Outback rents for an additional $100/night.

In front of the cottage is a gorgeous, long walking beach. Watch storms in winter, beach comb for treasures year-round, build driftwood sculptures, wiggle your sand in the toes.The only other building on your beach is a kayak rental property, very handy if you’d like to kayak.

Behind the cottage, you’re in a bird-watcher’s paradise, looking onto a large pond and wetland, with the resident Blue Heron, Red-Winged Blackbirds, Kingfishers, all manner of ducks, coots, loons, grebes, and of course, eagles.The patio provides a magical place to grill a steak, veggies, or salmon or simply sit on the glider and watch the teeming bird life on and around the pond.

We are family friendly! The yard and garden are fenced. A charming garden shed can be used as a drinks center if you throw a party.

Crescent Beach Cottage is non-smoking, and consists of the main Cottage and the Outback which combined have two (2) bedrooms with Queen beds, two (2) full baths, plus a cozy study with a large chair that folds out into a twin bed. Sleeps 4-5.

About Jennifer Brewer, Property Manager

I built a tree house on Orcas Island - okay, I HAD it built - and now spend my time between the tree house and my home in Seattle. Every time I drove past the cottage on Crescent Beach, I wondered who the lucky people were who lived there. When I learned that the owner was moving to Canada, I jumped on it!

Jennifer Brewer, Property Manager purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Jennifer Brewer, Property Manager chose Orcas Island

I've always loved building or finding enchanting places and making them even more enchanting. The cottage was and is beyond enchanting all by itself and I loved furnishing it with treasures both local and international, so that it is luxurious without being 'precious', if you know what I mean. It's a put-your-feet-up kind of place, with panache! I love it and want to share it with you.

What makes this cottage unique

As a writer, I find the light that floods the cottage from its many windows soul-nourishing. As a lover of all things wild, the beach out front and the nature preserve and pond in back of the cottage grounds me. And it's so great to walk to the Saturday Market in Eastsound, wander the shops, have lunch at one of Eastsound's many excellent restaurants, then return to the cottage for coffee, tea, or wine. What's not to love?!

A dream cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is so spectacular. Every detail about it is beautifully curated for the perfect Orcas Island stay. We spent the day reading in the sun, cooking, enjoying the walks on the beach right in front, doing yoga on the patio overlooking the pond, and relaxing in the sauna. This is the perfect spot for a retreat and within walking distance to the cutest shops and dining. There's even a kayak shop as your neighbor which made for a lovely evening adventure. I'm already looking for reasons to come back. Thank you for sharing this dream spot!!

Delightful

  • 5 of 5

This ain't just any old ordinary VRBO. The cottage (and the Outback) appears to be have been decorated by a professional, using top quality furnishing. The place could easily function as a shooting location for the Pottery Barn catalogue. We like that style, so we loved it. The pond directly behind the house is beautiful and serene.

The location couldn't be better: Walk one minute East, and you'll have Kayak rentals at your disposal. Walk five minutes West, and you're in the heart of Eastsound with many quaint restaurants and shops. A full service supermarket is right there, too. Walk about 20 minutes North, and you're at North Beach.

Give it a try -- you'll want to come back.

Great time and wonderfull location....especially off season !

  • 5 of 5

The " wow " factor started as we drove into the driveway. Architecture of the cottage is right up my ally, nice detailing of the trellis`s, gates, walkways and a wonderful blending of home vs nature.

Upon entering the cottage the finishes were inline with what I had envisioned or hoped for....too often great exteriors are not followed up with " Great interiors ". This was done to perfection ! Lots of natural light, views from every room, soothing colors, natural materials, deep couches, fun furnishings and a good use of reclaimed timbers through out.

We both loved the place and plan a return trip in the near future...again, in the off season...

You can walk to a kayak rental place just down the beach from the cottage and take off from your beach. In winter, if it snows, put on your cross country skis and explore the nature trails that meander from the cottage to the pond and through the woods. Walk to a grocery store that has everything you could possibly need. On Saturday mornings, walk to the farmers market where you can enjoy great food and purchase island produce, meats, flowers, and crafts.
