  • Beautiful views / Wonderful family memories

    "This was our first experience renting a house on Orcas Island and we weren't sure what to expect. When we arrived on April 5, 2016 we were very pleasantly surprised by the wonderful water views from this house. The pictures from the Home Away website don't even do it justice! The house and property were cozy and inviting and we were in awe of the large windows looking out to the picturesque views from the living room, dining room and kitchen. Our kids (10, 6 & 4) really enjoyed playing in the yard while my wife and I relaxed. The room layout was perfect for our family of five. Our two sons really enjoyed staying in the 2nd bedroom (two beds) and our 4 year old daughter loved staying in the master bedroom with my wife and I (two beds in the master). The house was clean and had all the necessary bathroom towels/floormats and the kitchen had plenty of pots/pans/utensils etc... The living room, dining room and kitchen all felt very open (partly due to the layout and partly due to the large windows in each of these areas). With children, I will say that you do have to be cautious when walking down to the water from the stairs off the yard. Not an issue if you are being a watchful parent. The property was about 25 + minutes from the main town (Eastsound, WA) on the island, which made the house feel quiet and secluded. Our family would enjoy the waterfront in the late morning, explore the island during the day, then relax together at the house for a quiet evening. We spent three wonderful nights at this house and we were all sad to have to leave and come back to our regular lives. Our kids immediately asked when we would be able to return for another stay! The owner (Melinda) was helpful with information and quick to answer questions we had before our arrival, which made the experience much easier for us. We were very happy that Melinda allowed us to create spectacular memories at her house for our children!"

  • Magical weekend on the farm - We can't wait to go back!

    "My family went to Hoehn Bend Farm to celebrate my 2 year old daughter's birthday. It was absolutely amazing! The setting is gorgeous and incredibly peaceful. Farmer Terry welcomed us on arrival and immediately set to work charming both my 2 and 5 year old girls. We were able to participate as fully as we wished in caring for the animals, and we all just loved it. We were lucky enough to be there during the spring and were able to watch a calf being born just feet away from us, hold 3 day old chicks (and big chickens too!), and steal peeks at a weeks-old barn owl in the rafters. Both Terry and Jean were so kind to my girls and made a point to make everything so interesting for all of us. On our way out, they took us on a jeep tour of the Terry's neighboring family farm, which was a totally different but equally gorgeous setting. Terry and Jean made everything such an adventure for my girls. They laughed their heads off going through the tree tunnels, snatching berries and cherries from the bushes and trees as we bounced past, and catching glimpses of the animals along the way. The farm house is so comfortable, and Jean has taken a great deal of care in stocking it with everything a family could possibly need, including toys/movies/books for the kids. I have nothing but praise for Hoehn Bend Farm, and, weeks later, my girls still ask every day about when we can go back!"

  • Otter Magic is Certainly Magical!!

    "Recently, myself and three of my best friends had the opportunity to spend two nights on Otter Magic. From the parking lot, as we approached the floating home we were in love and once we walked in we were so happy that we decided to stay here! In fact, when it came time to leave, we did not want to go. We spent two glorious nights eating fresh lobster courtesy of Rick and Wendy, drinking wine, watching the family of otters play right off of the back deck and spending quality time with one another. Thank you Rick and Wendy for your hospitality and we hope to come back sooner than later!"

  • Beautiful home and very relaxing stay

    "We had a fantastic time enjoying this beautiful home (the main house). The owners spared no detail making us feel welcome. The setting was serene and quiet perched on a rock surrounded by madrona and evergreen. The views were fantastic even with the rainy weather. We really appreciated every detail of the home and activity at our finger tips, especially the hot tub and pool table. Don't be intimidated by the rules, they are by and large just common sense so all can have an opportunity to enjoy this well-built home. We appreciated the fully stocked kitchen and pancake smorgasbord too! Thanks much :)"
