About Susan Gudgell
We are long time Orcas Islanders -- Wally grew up on Orcas and Susan was drawn here because of summers with her grandparents on nearby Samish Island. The natural beauty was our initial attraction in building a life here, but the wonderful community of eclectic neighbors have kept us here. It has been a great place to raise our family.
Susan Gudgell purchased this Cottage in 1994
Why Susan Gudgell chose Eastsound
We both have long family histories in the islands. We heard about this property 25+ years ago, tucked away on Turtleback Mountain, and came to take a look. Standing on the bluff, looking at West Sound to the south, and the moonrise over Mt. Woolard to the east, we said, "this is where we want to spend the rest of our lives." Pure magic.
What makes this Cottage unique
Experience serenity here on the farm, taking walks to view lovely vistas, gathering your salad from the garden, breakfast from the chicken coop, and paddling around the pond. For your adventures, this is centrally located on Orcas Island, close to the ferry, close to Eastsound, and just minutes from Turtleback Mountain Preserve. Less than 15 miles from historic Rosario Resort and Moran State Park.

Peaceful and Quaint
This property was a very nice retreat from our hurried life. It was very accommodating and provided extra delightful distractions. Really liked just kicking back and listening to the birds and breeze. The absence of noise was wonderful.
Wonderful retreat from reality!
This serine farm is the perfect setting for a weekend away from the city to unwind. And just a short drive into Eastsound for provisions. We’ll definitely be back!
This is our second time at Dragon Fly Farm. It was relaxing and tranquil. We went canoeing on the pond in the afternoon. Had several great meals with local farm produce and fish. All the pans, kitchenware, glasses and utensils were provided and of good quality - only the wine opener needs to be upgraded. Linens, pillows and bath towels were beautiful and plentiful. We will be back.
Thank you for the kind review! Very nice to have you back on Dragonfly Farm. And the wine opener has been upgraded...thanks for the heads up!
Perfect family getaway!
Lovely spring break vacation! The cottage was perfect and had everything we needed for a wonderful stay- super comfortable beds with cozy comforters (kiddos ages 12 & 13 slept in loft), fully outfitted kitchen (we cooked most of our meals for the week), tv & DVD player to enjoy a few movies. The kids had fun in the kayaks, and we had fun relaxing, reading, taking photos, sketching, etc. thanks for sharing your lovely cottage with us!
Awesome cottage, the kids loved it here!
This was our second time on Orcas Island, and we could not have been happier with our stay at the cottage. The house was clean and cozy, plenty of space for our family of five. Our two older kids loved the loft space up the ladder. The property was lovely, the chickens were fun, and we loved going out in the kayaks. Would definitely stay here again!
We really enjoyed our stay, what a peaceful setting. The house had everything we needed to make meals, it’s comfy and cozy, Perfect!
