About janice & greg

We are living our dream on Orcas Island, and thrilled to provide an extra special spot to share our paradise with visitors from the rest of the world.

We moved to Orcas in 2009 from Portland, Oregon (not a bad spot either!). After purchasing a vacation cabin on Mt. Hood that found us never wanting to leave, we decided to find a similarly beautiful spot to make a new life. For us, it was Orcas Island.

We purchased the Island Tree house in 2013, and have spent every free moment making it what we hope you find a dream-come-true for visitors to our beautiful island.

Greg is a manager with San Juan County, and Janice works in design. Our 120 pound Sheep Dog, Lewis, loves it here too!

Collectively, we are boaters, aviators, firefighters, fisherfolk, gardeners, artists and crafters.

We are dedicated to making your stay the very best possible!

Treehouse Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Treehouse exceed our expectations. The house is updated with modern amenities but is still warm and inviting. Everything we needed was there ready for us to enjoy. It was also a great jumping off point due to its location near Rosario Resort, Eastsound and the state parks. Janice was an amazing host and we really appreciated her personal touch. We highly recommend this rental and hope to be able to stay there the next time we visit Orcas Island.

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The home was very nice. It had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. It was conveniently located to hike in Moran State Park, to visit the Rosario Resort, and to go to East Sound. We enjoyed whale watching, horseback riding, kayaking, and hiking. The home was very clean and cozy. The owner stopped by to ensure we had plenty of pellets for the grill. She was very gracious and accommodating.

Highly recommend this home for a visit to Orcas Island.

Great House!!

The house worked well for two couples. Nice and clean. Close to everything we wanted to do. Wish we would have had more of a water view. Hope to stay again.

Beautiful natural setting

  • 5 of 5

What a beautifully, relaxing few days my sisters and I have had in Orcas Tree House, just what we hoped for. Place is everything advertised, comfortable, clean, spacious, lovely nature theme throughout, bringing the outside in as do the large array of windows.

It was so lovely to be sitting up high in the trees, with peekaboo views of the water. Janice was very personable and quick to respond to our requests. The perfect retreat we were looking for.

Lovely and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a romantic week of kid-free reconnecting time over Spring Break. The property is fantastic. Spacious enough that there is plenty of room for everything, but cozy enough that you feel snuggled into your own little oasis. We cooked about half the time and the kitchen was well stocked and easy to use.

We watched netflix and amazon prime on the TV and snuggled on the comfortable couch. They have several throw blankets to curl up under. There are two bedrooms with queen beds in each. We only used one, but both are spacious and have nightstands with good lamps on each side (for those of you who like to read before bed, this is important). The one bedroom also had a loveseat.

There is a washer and dryer in one of the bedrooms, tucked away behind a curtain. We did laundry there and it ran well.

Everything is new and looks lovely. The bathroom has a large tiled shower with an IKEA sink that has drawers underneath. Perfect for storing all your toiletries out of the way, but easily accessible.

Overall, it was a great stay. We would highly recommend this house to other travelers and will stay here again if it's available next time we come to Orcas Island.

[And for those whale watchers, we went out pre-season and there was a family of resident whales we watched for an hour. It was amazing! Highly recommend Nate and Trey at Deer Harbor Charters - great guys, very informative, and they took their time positioning us to see the whales, sea lions, eagles and other wildlife.]
