Orcas Island Cabin with Private Pond

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,300 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 bathrooms with sofa sleeper in the living room

Our cabin doesn't offer views of the ocean, but what it does offer is a view of it's own private pond with a bridge unlike any other you've seen. The background beyond the pond is a beautiful view of Turtleback Mountain. 'Our Place' provides peace and serenity on a 10 acre parcel at the end of a private road in a secluded and quiet wooded setting. The best sunset's on Orcas can be seen from West beach less than a mile away.

About Angie

Dan was born and raised on Orcas. His family homesteaded here in the late 1800's. I moved here from Utah 23 years ago. We both raised our children here on the island and now they too are living here and raising their own children.

Angie purchased this house in 2009

Why Angie chose Eastsound

It's southwest exposure offers sun all day and beautiful sunsets in the evenings. I'm partial to the west side of the island because it's the area my family settled and also it's where I've lived my entire life.

What makes this house unique

The view of the pond and bridge as you sit on the covered porch first thing in the morning will make even the rainiest day seem like bright blue skies.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much for helping us create family memories. We appreciated your efforts - from the fully-stocked pond, to the beautifully crafted bridge, to the restful deck, to the comfy beds.

This is a special place.

Beautiful, cozy house and the garden was a kid's paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Angie's home is lovely. It was extremely clean and well stocked with everything you could need. Our daughter loved the garden - the fruit trees, painted rocks, and play structure. There was even visiting deer. Unfortunately, we had to cut our stay short since one of our kiddos got sick, and Angie was so kind and understanding. I would highly recommend this home. Very family friendly. We hope we get the chance to return!

Lovely cabin on Orcas

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here over New Year's and we loved this charming cabin. Of all the cabin rentals I've stayed at, this one is one of the best. The house was very well stocked with great little touches like extra toilet paper, coffee filters, and even a kit to make s'mores. There were four of us and we had plenty of room to hang out as well as enough privacy in our own rooms to not feel crowded. All in all a great rental.

Excellent Place!

  • 5 of 5

The place is very comfortable, clean, and excellent setting. I will definitely go back to this house. The owner was very easy to coordinate with, and we had a nice chat while we were there.

Nicest place we've rented in a long time

  • 5 of 5

The owners are the nicest people. They made us feel so welcome. The house/property is even better than the photos. Everything was immaculate and there were many thoughtful details to make our stay restful. Our dogs loved running in the enormous yard. We spent a lot of time on the deck, in the yard, even in the orchard picking apples. At night, we sat in the gazebo under the stars and made S'mores while listening to owls in the distance. It couldn't have been more idyllic. We will definitely be back! This was one of our best rental experiences ever.

Great for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here! It was a beautiful, private setting, and our 5 year old loved swimming in the pond, climbing on the play structure, and making s'mores. The place had all the supplies we'd need, and Angela included nice touches like s'mores supplies. They also had pear and apple trees that we could pick.

The location was also great, just a 5-10 minute drive into Eastsound, and served as a great jumping off point for other activities on the island.
