Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This new luxury home has spectacular views nearly 360 degrees. The home site is on top of a ridge, overlooking bays, islands and the Olympic Mountains to the south and west and over Victorian Valley and Mount Constitution to the east. The 17 acre property has its own one acre pond. Bald eagles and other birds, deer, rabbits, bullfrogs, and an array of other wildlife abound on the property.

The house has two cedar decks on the south and west exposures and a slate patio on the east. Cathedral ceilings are used throughout the house with radiant floor heating in all rooms. The ultra-modern kitchen has a Dacor oven/range, granite counters and a central island. There is both a fireplace and woodstove. The master bathroom has a jacuzzi, two sinks, and a large, customized shower, tiled in India slate.

Large windows are everywhere to maximize the views, and additional light is afforded by skylights and clerestory windows. The house has satellite TV, VCR, DVD, CD player, and wireless internet access. Several bicycles are available in the garage for use by renters.

The driveway comes off a scenic private road which winds through Victorian Valley and is a pleasant place to stroll and jog. Nearby access to the water affords opportunities for whale watching tours, kayaking, sailing and fishing. Orcas Island is famous for its biking, and hiking and mountain biking trails abound in Moran State Park and Turtleback Mountain.

Eastsound with its quaint shops and restaurants is just seven miles away, and other villages, galleries, pottery shops, beaches, inns, and restaurants are scattered throughout the island.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Stunning view overlooking the islands. Immaculate and spacious accommodations. Nestled among nature and walking trails. We didn't want to leave! Lots of nooks for reading, playing games or strumming a guitar. Nice to unplug and watch the sunset. Owner was very responsive and helpful.

Perfect Place on Orcas Island

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of this home for our Orcas Island stay. Amazing views were our top priority, and this place has them! Often, I am skeptical of the pictures chosen to represent views, but in this case, I think the real thing even surpassed the photos. Sitting on the deck watching the water, rows of tree-covered islands, snow-capped mountains, and incredible sunsets was our favorite "activity".

The home itself is lovely - it somehow manages to feel very comfortable and cozy while also feeling light and spacious, with high ceilings and light coming in, surrounded by nature in every direction.

Andy was an excellent host - left useful directions and suggestions and was accessible if needed.

If we are fortunate enough to return to Orcas Island, this will be our first choice of places to stay.

East Coast visitors

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed this truly lovely, well appointed home. You do need a car, however the Island and ferries are easy to navigate. We enjoyed hiking, kayaking, and simply relaxing as we all have busy lives. We are old friends, now all in different east coast states, and this was a great place to spend time together and enjoy each others company. The views are amazing. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5

We could not agree more with the previous reviews for this lovely home. The views are exceptional and the house was built to take advantage of the beauty of Blacktail Ridge. The house is spacious, quiet, kitchen well equipped, plenty of space for relaxing and taking in the beauty of Orcas Island. The owner was responsive, helpful and provided great information to help us plan our visit. We would love to return. Wonderful property.

STAYED HERE SECOND TIME WITH PARENTS-BEST HOME TO RENT ON ORCAS ISLAND!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is the most beautiful, peaceful, rental home on Orcas Island, in our opinion!!! We stayed there for the second time at the end of June, with my two 80 plus year old parents, and had the time of our lives! From the moment, you walk into this large, cathedral-ceiled home, you feel peace, happiness and serenity! My parents, who are very selective about where they stay, ABSOLUTELY LOVED, and treasured this home. In fact, she wants to rent it, with my sister and her husband soon. Frequently, I saw my parents, relaxing, soaking up the view, sitting outside, sipping tea, and staring out at the incredible vista of the other islands, water, pine trees and cruise ships! Even though, it was very warm outside, cool ocean breezes would cool down the house every day. We even saw a gentle doe deer, an eagle, rabbit, and myriad of birds that would sing in the trees. My family of five and the grandparents shared many stories together as we sat outside on the comfortable deck furniture, and inside on the comfy, plush living room couch. Every section of this large home, had a cozy, little nook with a couch or chair, that exuded relaxation. The appliances are all very new, and worked great! The Jacuzzi tub and great shower in the master bathroom were another source of relaxation. We always stay at Andy's place when we come to Orcas!!! It is a beautiful, serene place which everyone will love, and want to return to in the future!!!
