Olga House is situated in the hamlet of Olga located on Orcas Island, Washington. Orcas Island is the largest island (in sq. mi.) of the San Juan Islands, tucked between the state of Washington and Canada on the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
Olga House is a recently built cedar home, with vaulted ceilings throughout, and towering front windows facing south. Equipped with all modern conveniences and located on pristine Buck Bay where you can boat, fish, sail, or kayak. Private buoy off of Olga Dock comes with the home.
Olga has an historic post office and a post-card perfect store & deli (Olga Store). A short walk away is Orcas Island Artworks, a wonderful local arts & crafts gallery, along with the Olga Cafe a delightful restaurant. This is a destination for islanders and visitors alike.
Moran State Park is less than 2 miles away, and features lakes, trails for walking and mountain biking. Mt. Constitution is in Moran State Park and is the highest location in the San Juan Islands.
Eastsound, the largest 'town' on Orcas is less than 15 minutes away.
Live in Portland, Oregon. We have been going to the San Juans since college - many years ago.
Leslee & Paul purchased this house in 1998
One of the unique locations in the world. Located in the San Juan Island banana belt of NW United States. Incredible marine life. Olga a picture perfect hamlet with an historic post office and the Olga Store (literally on post cards)
Grab your favorite refreshment (and company) and hang out on the dock and enjoy the absolutely spectacular view. Watch eagles fly overhead, and the ferries and sailboats in the distance, and be mesmerized by the silence at night.
We had a great time at the Olga house! Very comfortable and also close to fun activities.
The house had everything we wanted and more for a wonderful weekend of relaxation. Leslee and Paul are fabulous and have excellent communication for any questions you may have. Why very much look forward to our next visit! Thank you!!!!
The house was light, clean and cheerful. We had a cozy time putting together puzzles and enjoying the great restaurants and shops as well as beautiful hikes on Orcas. Although there are not many services close by, the island is so small that reaching restaurants, shops and beautiful hiking was not difficult. We DID have trouble getting off the island as some ferries were cancelled so bear that in mind when making your travel plans.
Dear Leslee and Paul,
We very much enjoyed our stay at your lovely house in Olga. The house is beautiful and extremely well equipped, and Olga is very peaceful and serene. We had a great hike in nearby Moran State Park and really enjoyed visiting the local pottery studios. The weather was even perfect. All in all, an excellent way to help my brother celebrate his 70th birthday (and his wife her 68th). I hope we have a chance to return again.

Our first time visit to Orcas was wonderful, the Island is beautiful and has a very peaceful vibe to it.
The Olga house met all of our needs, it is well equipped and clean. If only the Olga Store was still open….
We spent most of our time on the deck relaxing and watching the deer or at the dock fishing.
Our swim in Mountain Lake was incredible, oysters and prawns at Buck Bay a great experience.
Our trip to Orcas was the favourite trip of our summer!
From the initial contact, Leslee and Paul were responsive and helpful. Olga is a beautiful home and is very well maintained, furnished, clean and very well situated. Just writing this review evoked some of the fondest memories of a vacation that I have experienced. Olga is in a very, very quiet neighborhood and is but a very short walk from the lake. We enjoyed relaxing, reading on the patio and watching the deer and birds. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, dishes, etc and the beds and pillows are some of the most comfortable that we've used. Orcas was the end of our three week vacation in the Pacific Northwest and the rest at Olga was just what we needed. Olga is only about 15 minutes from Eastsound and less to Mt Constitution, which is amazing. We will return and we'll be sure to contact Leslee and Paul. Thank you for opening your lovely home to travelers such as us!
Pilot your boat from the mainland (Bellingham, Anacortes, Seattle...) directly to Olga House. Private buoy guarantees moorage if Olga Dock is full. You can fish, crab, bird watch, and kayak right off of Olga Dock.
