About Susan Gudgell
We have been on Orcas Island for many decades (in fact Wally grew up here!), so know the island well. We can suggest not only popular travel adventures, but little know gems on island backroads.
Susan Gudgell purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Susan Gudgell chose Eastsound
We purchased this property for love of the historic Porter Building, located next door. For years this portion was vacant, occupied by a parking lot and dumpsters. We dreamed of beautifying the shoreline, dedicating a beach access to the public and building stairs to the water. At last we've completed our vision with the 'Main Street Station.' SeaStar Lofts allows us to welcome travelers to our favorite place in the world.
What makes this Condo unique
Sipping coffee or a glass of wine on the patio, breathing in that clear island air, and contemplating the view! We also love wandering around the village, hiking in the Turtleback Mountain Reserve, and exploring Moran State Park. We know many of the restauranteurs in town and there are a remarkable number of delicious options for an evening out.

Prefect for the 4th of July
Right on the water over looking the fireworks. So cute and cozy. Central to everything. Perfect location for any time of the year.
Excellent location, view, and a wonderfully appointed room.
Excellent place to stay. East Sound location is very convenient with a nice view of the water. Suite was very clean, reasonably quiet, and had a good supply of basic kitchen tools if you want to do your own cooking. Plenty of hot water and a good sized bathroom. Be aware that that the fridge is small (about 3ft), particularly the freezer, so be careful how much stuff you plan to store. I didn't run out of fridge space even with enough food for a week, but I did max out the freezer space with five items. PS - the hairdryer is in the closet, it took me a few minutes to find.
Clean, comfortable and convenient
Stayed here for two nights during spring break with spouse and two young adult daughters. Very comfortable lodging, clean and convenient to everything in Eastsound. GREAT bakery and coffee across the street at Brown Bear Bakery--highly recommend! Enjoyed hiking Mt. Constitution and Turtleback Preserve area. Suggestions: our daughters said the pull-out bed was a little "wire-y", maybe supply a pad to place over the thin mattress for comfort? Also kitchen chairs, though functional, weren't comfortable for lengthy sitting. We didn't spend a lot of time sitting, but at night only three of fit comfortably on the couch and the fourth had to sit in a kitchen chair. The deck and view are lovely, we hope to come back during warmer weather to enjoy! The owner was very responsive and easy to message, thanks for a great stay!
Signage when arriving at night is difficult to spot. Also, fireplace was not operational. Otherwise, great view, great amenities, great location, comfortable bed and shower, convenient kitchen. Would gladly stay again!
Thank you for the feedback! We have a new sign in the works which should help with night arrivals. The fireplace does seem to be working fine. We welcome calls 24/7 should our guests need instruction or assistance.
Great place to stay!
The suite was just as advertised! Very clean & everything & more that you need for your stay. My emails were answered almost immediately.
The fan for the stove was quite loud & there will be some noise if someone is staying above you.
I would definitely stay here again!
Enjoy the pristine beauty of Orcas Island, with the best that nature has to offer (hiking, wildlife tours, etc.), plus word class restaurants, cute shops, and absolute relaxation. This is the treasure of the northwest!
