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.

Beautiful house, fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing to dislike about the house. It is set up for a relaxing stay with gorgeous views. We got lucky with the weather and saw some gorgeous sunsets. With rabbits running all around the large property, it is idyllic. I would give it 4.5 stars if I could for 2 reasons - we were cooking a lot and would have like a couple more pans (like woks to stir things - since there were 6 of us), and the beds could have been more comfortable - I thought it was just me, but others said the same. But in the grand scheme of things, these are minor nits, when you think of how fantastic everything else about the house is. I would gladly rent this place again.

Awesome get away!

  • 5 of 5

What a great get away! We so enjoyed your home, location and all the San Juan Islands offered! Your home was perfect for our family! Loved our evening of relaxation on the patio! Thanks Andy for your recommendations! Our whale watch and kayaking tour were outstanding! Hope to come back again! So much more to see and do!

Beautiful home with fantastic views!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with fantastic views. We were able to soak in the scenery, enjoy cool fresh air, and the symphony of quietness at this house. Comfortable beds in every bedroom allowed all of us to sleep well, which made everyone happy. And the floor layout gave us the space to relax separately. Convenient location to all parts of Orcas Island.

Entire rental process was smooth, owner provided great communication and flexibility with our rental dates.

It was a nice touch to have paper products (paper towels, toilet paper), foil, sandwich bags, trash bags and condiments provided. Looking forward to our next visit…

just incredible

  • 5 of 5

the black tail ridge house is amazing. it immediately felt like a home away from home. it’s close to the ferry and a short drive to main street. the house is a good, central location for a lot of attractions.

the views from the front deck are unreal! once the sun goes down, stargazing from the back patio was also a favorite. the owner andy was a pleasure to work with.

we will be returning as soon as we can.
