About Larry and Liz Pollock

We, Larry and Liz Pollock, currently live in Bellingham, WA. We purchased our dream place on Orcas Island over 25 years ago after falling in love with each other and with the island. Our cabin home was previously part of the Buckhorn Lodge back in the 1930s, and used as a fishing resort destination. We love Orcas so much, we even got married at the little chapel in Eastsound and had our reception right at the cabin. Lovely! The 'cabin' as we lovingly refer to it in our family, has been our place to vacation, relax, and rejuvenate with one another. Our kids, Niki and Drew, now adults, have many fond memories building rafts, playing on the beach in front, swimming in the pool, and sharing their special place with friends. As educators we also had the added bonus to spend most of our summers on Orcas. But, now, as our kids are grown and one of us (Larry) is retired, we have decided to once again share our little piece of heaven with others, which also allows us to travel to other destinations around this amazing planet. We welcome you to build your own memories at our Orcas cabin home.

Larry and Liz Pollock purchased this House in 1988

Why Larry and Liz Pollock chose Eastsound

The most amazing thing about this property is the easy waterfront access and spectacular views. If you know Orcas Island at all, you come to realize that low-bank waterfront homes are hard to find. Our cabin is waterfront, and has just a few steps down to the beach. There are many things to do on Orcas, but we find just being at the cabin is wonderful. We see otters, seals, porpoises, eagles and waterfowl, and deer, literally every day. We also have an old pool in our backyard, which is usually available during the summer and is solar heated. Renters will also have use of our 3 kayaks and 1 canoe. Renters can also use our dinghy if you own a boat. Just minutes away from Eastsound (the main town on Orcas), it is easy to check out the local stores, grab some good food and buy your own groceries.

What makes this House unique

This cabin is truly a unique spot. Low bank waterfront is rare on Orcas and we are just steps to the beach. Our view is spectacular. On a clear day Mt. Baker is amazing! There is a seasonal solar-heated pool in the fenced in backyard. One of a kind experience for all!

It is so relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable that we have people return year after year, making it one of their most memorable experiences (or so we are told!) Please note that this cabin is in a "neighborhood", so we ask that everyone is respectful of our neighbors. Please do not walk through their property (use our stairs or the public access by the road only), and watch your noise level (water carries sound!!) and language. Code is for it to be quiet after 10 PM. Thanks!

Clean, spacious, and well equipped with kitchen supplies, games, kayaks, etc. Short drive to Eastsound for shops/food. Checking in and out was a breeze, and Larry was great about quick and thorough communication. Would highly recommend!

My sister and I came for a check view to see if this would be a wonderful vacation spot for our families and we both loved it. The Pollacks home was warm and wonderful and we will be coming back for sure. The areas were also interesting and made us want to know more about this area of our country.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Loretta and her group were delightful to host. We are pleased they plan to return soon.

                                                                  Beautiful spot, responsive hosts

                                                                  Jody L.

                                                                  The house was clean and stocked with all kitchen necessities. We spent hours each day scouring the beach. We watched an eagle dive for dinner and kayaked with the seals. The hosts were kind and responsive. Would definitely visit again.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  We are here now and enjoying the sunny weather. Our new grandson, 3 weeks old, is enjoying his first Orcas stay! There is a heron standing on a kelp bed about 100 feet out in the cove. Peaceful and renewing.

                                                                  Beautiful property on a beautiful island

                                                                  Doug A.

                                                                  We spent two weeks at this beautiful place. The house was clean and well cared for. The beds and shower were both quite nice. Always important! The views are incredible. Pictures to not do it justice. Each evening we would go to the lower deck for a little happy our time and enjoy watching the sea lions swimming around. Larry was very friendly and helpful. We definitely hope to come back.

                                                                  Outstandingly comfortable!

                                                                  Jennifer P.

                                                                  We will be booking again. Our only regret is not having stayed longer. The waterfront view is incredibly peaceful, I really enjoyed the sunrise while drinking my coffee. It was so very nice having our own private pool. The house is so well stocked with loads of games, a poker table and chips and very cozy linens. Can't wait to come back!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  A beautiful week away

Larry, the property owner was wonderfully responsive and helpful and even worked things out so we could stay an extra night as the property was available and we wanted to extend our stay. While we did spend a fair amount of time doing activities around the island you could also just stay and enjoy the water and scenery. The owners have thought of and provided virtually all of the necessities and many extras. The view is gorgeous and the home is comfortable. We hope to schedule a return trip soon!

Orcas is often called the resort island because of the many beach resorts, restaurants, art galleries and charming shops. Recreational options include golf, tennis, a small movie house, live music, restaurants and, in the summer, a seasonal Saturday farmers' market. You can also hike in many places, including Moran State Park, Washington's fourth largest State Park, as well as Turtle Back Mountain. There are also several mountain lakes to explore.
