My wife, 14 year old daughter and I stayed at Carla's cottage for three nights in early April for a spring break mini-vacation. The cottage is extremely clean, very well equipped for cooking and relaxing, and has a beautiful view to the north and east, as it is located on the north side of Orcas Island. It is only about 10 minutes drive from Eastsound, the main town on the island, yet feels very secluded. It is quite easy to get to with Carla's excellent directions. Carla has three large but very friendly dogs, which we enjoyed, despite not being "dog people."
Carla was available when we needed something or had a question, but lives in a separate house on the property, so also respected our privacy.
This is a perfect place for a couple for a restful vacation. Sleeping arrangements aren't ideal for more than a couple, however, just FYI.
There are several great restaurants in Eastsound, from casual breakfast/lunch places, to some high end options for dinner. We had a wonderful gourmet dinner at the New Leaf restaurant in the Outlook hotel, as well as a very tasty casual dinner at a Mexican restaurant on Prune Alley, the name of which escapes me, but it started with an "M".
We enjoyed nice, not too strenuous hikes in Moran State Park, Obstruction Pass State Park, and Turtleback Mountain Reserve.
Highly recommend Carla's cabin!
