About Robyn and Larry Myers
Hi! We are Larry and Robyn. We met on Orcas 33 years ago when Robyn went to watch a softball game with some friends. Larry made a diving catch out of left field and virtually ended up in Robyn's lap, and the rest, as they say, is history! Married for 35 years, they now have 3 grown children, 2 gorgeous grand-daughters, and a big black lab. We now live and play on the Oregon coast where Larry is a self-employed contractor and Robyn is a Teacher. We stay busy with golfing, fishing, gardening, our precious grand-children.
Why Robyn and Larry Myers chose Eastsound
Address Un-Gnome was built by Robyn's uncle, a well-respected builder on Orcas, and her father, upon his retirement from the Los Alamos (New Mexico) Scientific Laboratory in 1982. Montgomery Lane originally belonged entirely to Robyn's grandfather (he and his wife homesteaded on Orcas, and raised 5 sons). He sold parcels to his children and closet friends, a.k.a Family and over the years Montgomery Lane developed. Robyn joined her parents on Orcas and spent several years there with Larry and their children, and many summers and holidays after they moved to Oregon. Robyn inherited the home from her parents, and she and Larry did an extensive remodel in recent years. Orcas Island as a whole, and Address Un-Gnome, in particular, will always be part of our hearts and heritage. We are blessed to have it, and glad to be able to share it. By the way, Larry named it Address Un-Gnome to honor Robyn's mother, who collected gnomes.

Our stay on Orcas....
Excellent property! The location is great. We actually walked in to town instead of trying to drive and find a parking place. Not far but about a good 15 minutes or so walk. The house was spotless and I have never rented a VRBO that had such a well stocked kitchen! The street is a dead end so it's nice and quiet. Wood is supplied for the firepit outside. Loved the special welcome in the dining room and the fresh cut flowers. Great stay and would recommend!
The property was perfect for an escape from the hustle and bustle. It was perfect for kids and the fire pit was great!
This home has a great set up for families. The inside is spacious and comfortable. It is very close to Eastsound and in a quiet neighborhood.
spacious comfortable & quiet
large (3 BR) spacious LR good kitchen very comfortable. Large yard with nice seating areas quiet residential street short distance from town (would have to walk along main road so we drove) Minimal water view through a lot of trees. We could not figure out members walk to beach, uncomfortable trying private yards... did go down and it is not a good walking beach, wouldn't try that again
Wonderful place to stay!
Larry and Robyn. We truly enjoyed our stay at your home. It exceeded our expectations. So homey and feels very comfortable, just like home. Thanks so much for the ice chest. We made other arrangements for the BBQ, so that worked out just fine. As you mentioned it's a small world. We hosted a small dinner the friday night and Stan and Janine were there as well as other people in the wedding party and enjoyed the evening.
We made these arrangements so long before the arrival dates, Two families had to cancel ,one had a death in the family,and the illness.
In closing your place was a 10 and I would recommend it to anyone.
Ed, Thank you so much for your kind words, and for taking such good care of Address Un-Gnome during your stay.
I am sorry it did not work out for your original party of guests to come, but I am glad to hear it was still an enjoyable stay on beautiful Orcas Island.
It was especially nice for us to learn the reason for your visit - a wedding! - and that the groom was the son of friends of our there on The Island.
Please come back when you can-
~~Larry and Robyn
Quiet and cozy island vacation
The house was spectacular and provided plenty of space for a family of five. The multiple outside seating areas encouraged relaxation while soaking in the warm autumn sun slightly cooled by pacific breezes. We found everything we needed in the house, and look forward to staying again.
