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!

one of our best stays in vacation rental in recent memory

  • 5 of 5

Truly a comfortable house with all the amenities that yo need for a holiday. From tasteful decoration to comfy bed to fully stock kitchen and within short walking distance of Rosario resort, this is everything we needed to get away from stress of work. Highly roecommended and for all the right reasons. Next to Sedona' Orcas is our peaceful space, we can't imagine staying anywhere else after our trip this time. Well done!

Very well designed and out together space ! Decor inspiration and color scheme from right outside!

  • 5 of 5

Relaxing little space with everything you need ...except I couldn’t find a can opener but hey that’s what Swiss Army knives are for! Nice little walk down to the Rosario resort and short drive into eastsound. The rain didn’t dampen our spirits as we hiked around cascade lake and up mt.constitution tower ...beautiful! Excellent hosts who even delivered hot coffee and provisions when after a big storm the majority of the island lost power. Great island to unwind , get your nature groove on and explore and this spot was an excellent place to kick up your feet after a day of hiking! Can’t wait to come back in the summer and see all this island has to offer !

Owner's Response: Oh Laura, we are so happy you enjoyed Orcas Island and the Treehouse! It seems anytime of year is a special time on our little island. I am mortified that there was no can opener (which recently broke, and had not been replaced). We promise that when you come back, there will be one there with your name on it! :o) Thanks for staying at the cozy Treehouse. Janice

A Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to surprise my wife for her birthday with a weekend getaway from the chaos of our daily life: work, children, dogs, repeat... From the very first inquiry, Janice has been extremely helpful, making this process to register, book, plan, and schedule very easy. I knew I was making the right choice, simply based on her hospitality and communication, coupled with the beautiful pictures of The Island Tree House! I commend Janice's constant communication with me post-booking, as well as helping me with recommendations, as it was our first time on Orcas Island.

The home was ready upon our arrival; clean, well lit, organized, and prepared. Instructions for maintenance were clear and concise. We enjoyed walking through Eastsound, hiked 5.0 miles around the lake, enjoyed reading a book by the fireplace, breakfast at the Catkin Cafe, and a delicious dinner at The Mansion at the Rosario Resort & Spa. The Island Tree House, surrounded by the lush and peaceful environment of Orcas Island, is the perfect getaway to remind oneself to slow down, take a deep breath, and allow yourself to enjoy this moment in your life; the perfect companion to rejuvenate your soul.

John Muir once said, "Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean."

The Island Tree House on Orcas Island did just that for my wife and I.

Fantastic getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated my 40th at the treehouse and it couldn't have been better! The location is perfect for Orcas Island - close to both Moran State Park and Eastsound. The house itself is very well equipped in terms of creature comforts (wifi, full kitchen, cozy/modern decor, etc), but you also feel as though you are roughing it in relative seclusion. Highly recommend!

Wonderfull start for our US Holidays

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful quiet place to spend a couple of days away form a big city. We loved the atmosphere of the house. Excellently stocked kitchen, great grill and everything well maintained. Welcome letter to the point and no issues with the payment and deposit management.
