It's easy to let the days melt away reading a book on our deck, watching bald eagles fly by, and looking out across the water to views of Canada and nearby Matia Island. You can reach our property by boat. We have a mooring bouy. One of the most popular salmon fishing areas is in our cove and there is excellent crabing at nearby Sucia Island. The waters off our beach are also great for kayaking.
Enjoy hiking and swimming at nearby Moran State Park and visit the many artisan studios on the island. Catch a whale watching boat at the Ferry Landing or Deer Harbor and see the magnificent resident Orca whale pods that call Puget Sound their home.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: My husband and I are environmental geologists. We knew we would love any waterfront property in the San Juan Islands. We didn't realize when we bought the house that we have one of the best beaches on Orcas at the bottom of our stairs. We still marvel at the lovely view of Mt Baker from the beach, the fabulous bald eagles flying over our heads, and the way my son can't be beat in rock skipping contests.
Why the Owner Chose Eastsound, WA, USA:
We love our house on Orcas and hope you do too. We've had friends tell us it's the best vacation they've ever had. We've spent our entire summer on Orcas for over 10 years. I think you'll find that our house does not feel like a "typical" rental property. It feels more like a home. The house is located in the historic Buckhorn Lodge and Beach area. At low tide you can walk, although sometimes scrambling over rocks, for several miles on the beach. There are also great tide pools during low tide. I love to sit on the deck and just soak in the view. We have a pair of bald eagles that fish from a tree on our property. The kids love building forts on the beach with all the drift wood, collecting sea glass and shells and of course roasting marshmallows at evening beach fires. Plus, we have a tree house complete with a "draw bridge."
The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you like bird watching, we have a great bird feeder that attracts lots of local birds. The humming birds love the blackberry bushes. You will definitely hear pleated woodpeckers and if you're lucky you'll see one land on the tree right in front of the deck.
