Overview

About the property

Charming cabin located on two private acres with easy access to a cove beach.

The cabin is located approximately five miles east of the Orcas Village and is truly off the beaten path. As you leave the Village, the road meanders through pastoral views giving way to an old-growth forest of Douglas fir and cedar and finally to Lake Killebrew. You are venturing far from the crowds and stress of everyday life. Our cabin is situated at the end of a winding country road on the edge of a south-facing, mossy knoll with great filtered sun all day. A mix of Shore pine, Douglas fir and Madrona surround and shelter the cabin. The reflection of the afternoon sun through these trees dances across the water providing a truly magical sight.

This unique retreat provides ultimate privacy and also takes you back to an era of simpler times. An old-fashioned, wood-fired cook stove, cedar log walls, fir and pine floors, hand-peeled railings, and braided area floor rugs exemplify the décor. The main level has one bedroom, one bathroom, a great room, dining room and kitchen. The master bedroom is located on the upper level. Additionally, there is a sleeping loft and a sitting area on the second floor. A unique log stairway provides access to the lower level for storage and laundry.

About T.K.

We are a family of five: two adults, two teenage boys and a spaniel. For our leisure time, we enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling, kayaking, sailing, skiing and backpacking. We always look forward to visiting Orcas for some of the above and much more!

T.K. purchased this cabin in 2001

Why T.K. chose Orcas Island

We were attracted to Orcas Island because of the natural beauty of the area. Additionally, the unique setting of the cabin provides intimate contact with nature, tranquility and ultimate privacy. We visit the cabin as frequently as we are able but it never seems to be quite enough.

What makes this cabin unique

No phones, no city noise, or lights, no internet and you rarely see another person; but, the sights and sounds of nature are all around you! We love to launch our kayaks from the cove beach and bike/hike the rural roads and trails in the immediate area of the cabin. Orcas Island provides an assortment of hiking options from sea level trails to the mountain environment of Moran State Park and Turtleback Preserve.

Notes:
If you are looking for amenities such as a HDTV, a hot tub, high-speed internet or a chief's kitchen--an alternate selection is advisable. However, it you are seeking seclusion, charm, and intimate contact with nature--you have found it. This cabin is located in a small, rural, community of approximately twenty other properties at the end of a winding gravel road. Adjacent structures are well hidden and you may rarely see neighbors. It is extremely peaceful and quiet in the area and tenants need to be consistent with that setting and respectful of other community members. Finally, fresh water is a valuable commodity in the San Juan Islands. Everyone needs to conserve this limited resource.

Relaxing time on Orcas Island in the great cabin

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at the cabin. The one month period was just enough time to explore the island. Lots to do and see!! Never in my life have I slept as well as I did. The quiet is overwhelming. The cabin was well-supplied and cozy. Without the aggravation of TV and internet, we listened to the radio and read while sitting on the veranda. The beach cove around the corner is a fun walk, and depending on the tide--always a treasure hunt. We hope to be repeat visitors.

Our Favorite Place to Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here on a number of occasions and always leave knowing we will be back. The cabin itself is beautiful (much more so than the pictures show). The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is fully equipped and the wrap around porch, with Adirondack chairs, is perfect for drinking coffee in the morning or having a glass of wine at night. There's a small secluded beach with tide pools within walking distance and a grassy knoll complete with a driftwood bench just next to the cabin where you can sit and feel like you are the only person in the world. It's so secluded and quiet you would never know that you are just a short drive to the ferry terminal and just a little farther down is the downtown area of Orcas Island. It's such a perfect place to relax and unwind in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, whether it be for a weekend or a month long stay. We can't wait to go back.

The listing pictures and property description are right on and all the amenities you need are provided. The cabin was very warm and comfortable....I would recommend this property and hope to return soon.

Great cabin on Orcas Island

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to unplug for a few weeks. This cabin on Orcas Island was absolutely perfect! Orcas is an hour ferry ride from the mainland. We hiked Moran State Park and Turtleback Preserve. Groceries were available in a village at the ferry landing at a gourmet market. The cabin was clean and comfortable. Actually the photos did not do the property justice. We spent considerable time at the beach which was a short walk from the cabin. The setting could not be more peaceful. We would definitely recommend this property to a friend and we hope to be back ourselves.

Car: recommended

Abundant wildlife can be enjoyed from the cabin deck including red-tailed hawks, osprey, bald eagles, deer and an occasional mink. If you are lucky you might catch a glimpse of the wild turkeys that call the area home. At the beach enjoy an assortment of birds including hawks and blue heron are common sites. At night, listen to the water lap the shore and echo around the cove or the chorus of seals gathered on Shag Rock just offshore.
