Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

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 6 1/2 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 22 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 Orcas Island

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.

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.

It was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun. Everything we needed was right there and it was super close to all of the fun things on the island. It was very peaceful and our dog had the greatest time just getting to do whatever she wanted on the property. Thank you for the amazing hospitality

Fabulous getaway and immaculate accommodations

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely amazing place. House was stocked with everything one might need (just bring your favorite food and drinks!) and meticulously clean. Like CLEAN. Luxurious beds and linens and fantastic relaxing vibes. Not one complaint. Angie and Dan are friendly and available but we felt like we were at a luxurious hideaway. Our dogs LOVED the property and were delighted with the pond. Amazing cabin and property. WE WILL BE BACK! Thank you, Dan and Angie!

Lovely inside and out

  • 5 of 5

We feel so lucky to have stayed at "Our Place". Angie was absolutely darling and so kind to us. We loved all of the sweet touches around the house and property. The painted rocks, the hammock swings and the beautiful, homey interior design. So comfortable and lovely. The kids loved "swimming with the fishes". Just being at the property made us feel so relaxed and lucky to be there.

The house itself is wonderfully built and I could not stop gazing at the beautiful bridge built from one large tree trunk with a perfect curve. Really a work of art and expert construction!

Thank you so much to the Kimples.

We rent many houses and this was one of the best ever!

Perfect family retreat

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a quiet place to get away after our son's week at sleep away camp and Our Place delivered. The property lives up to its photos and it was the perfect respite for our family of three, plus small dog. The pond provided a place for fly casting and boat floating, the house was well stocked with amenities (earning high praise from a critical middle schooler), and the porch was a great place to enjoy a morning coffee and some quiet reading. It felt very private, and yet was still close to Eastbound and all of its conveniences. We'll be back!

Idyllic and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and perfect for our family of 4. It's clear that the owners take great care to make it a nice place. We had a blast playing in the pond and feeding the fish and going on the little boat. The kids also really enjoyed the play structure and running around the large yard while we relaxed on the porch in hammock chairs. The owner was lovely and friendly and easy to communicate with.
