About the Property

Classic Waterfront Home, Private Beach, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to 6)

This is a wonderful place to get away from the hectic world! A Magnificent View, a Private Beach, a nice yard, eagles, and marine wildlife. Bring your binoculars!

Our comfortable waterfront Orcas home is located at the end of a private road on 7 acres, on the east side of the island, roughly midpoint between Point Lawrence and Doe Bay.

The property commands a magnificent, sweeping view of Rosario Strait, Cypress, Sinclair and Blakely Islands, the Peapod Rocks, and the Cascade Mountains. It's a wonderful big sky and big water view that captivates. Please see my website for pictures.

We offer you a very private, peaceful spot to spend time with friends and family. The sounds are seagulls, changing tides, and the wind in the trees. And, from the house, yard, and your own private beach, you can enjoy passing boats and marine life. Sea lions, otters, orca whales, deer, bald eagles, and seabirds of all kinds abound.

In warm weather a picnic table, lawn chairs and barbeque are put out. Because of a southerly exposure, the yard is a great place for soaking up the sun and dining outdoors.

In the winter months, a cozy fire and a good book will provide welcome relaxation while you watch the changing maritime scenery.

Guests who visit our house take away fond memories...like a full moon rising over the Cascades, a bald eagle landing right out front in our largest tree, a salmon doing a tail dance across the water...or the ultimate: a pod of whales on parade 75 yards offshore. And, no one forgets our view and the peacefulness.

We have been renting the house for happy vacations for thirty years. Over the years, many couples and families have returned to enjoy this wonderful place.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: I grew up in the South and was blown away by the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

Why the Owner Chose Doe Bay, WA, USA:
I fell in love with this place the first moment I walked into the yard. It has an amazingly open captivating view of the water and a private beach in a very private location. The house is very sweet and comfortable. I bought this property with the intention to eventually retire there. I am now living in California and will eventually sell this property to another family to enjoy. Please let me know if you would like to move to Orcas Island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
For the past thirty years many families and couples have had relaxing and wonderful times here watching the wildlife, especially the bald eagles. Getting away from the hectic, technology driven lives and refreshing and rebooting in nature.
