A quiet and roomy get away for two or more the Bird House is pet, family and couple friendly.
You are just a short walk to Cresent Beach to see the wild life or rent a kayak for a peaceful paddle. Fifteen minutes of walking and you're in 'down town' Eastsound. You can get to Orcas Center for top notch entertainment, the Farmer's Market, Seaview movie theater, the grocery store or a wonderful selection of restaurants or shops in no time. It's only a 5 minute walk to the convenience store and a short drive to Moran State Park. There's a new Land Bank walking trail just around the corner.
The large, fenced yard with seasonal flowers for cutting invites you out of doors to enjoy the view of East Sound, BBQ or play games on the lawn. Kids and dogs love to explore safely outside.
The roomy living/dining room area looks over the front garden and off to the waters of East Sound and is a great area to visit and play games.
The large kitchen opens to the family room with its cozy propane fireplace where you enjoy reading, listening to music or watching movies.
The king bed room looks out to the back yard and has its own large full bathroom. The queen room looks to the side yard and has an attached bath with step in shower.
The Bird House is a comfortable, centrally located place to NEST while exploring the many wonderful activities and areas on Orcas Island.

Megan grew up on Orcas Island and met Josh here. We now have two beautiful boys we are raising on the island.
Megan and Josh Tye purchased this house in 2008
Orcas Island is a beautiful, rehabilitating destination with options for an active or relaxing vacation. It's a charming community with great food, wonderful walking trails, swimming in lovely lakes, kayaking or sailing, entertainment at the Orcas Center and other venues and darling shops.
The Bird House is within walking distance to town and has a beautiful, flower filled yard in season. The home is roomy, yet cozy and has indoor and outdoor living. The large fence yard is wonderful for children and pets to explore in a safe environment.
We had the best time! Located at the center of the island and walking distance to Eastsound! Sat under the stars on the deck and caught up on girl time talking.
Great yard, located a short walk or even shorter drive from Eastsound. Yard was great for kids to run around in, also very nice for our two dogs. House was very comfortable for 3 adults and 2 young children. Would definitely come back again!
The home was clean, beautifully laid out for comfort and convenience. My two cocker spaniels loved the run of the yard and experiencing new smells while safe from traffic. I was close to the friends I came to visit and loved watching the moon come up at night through the trees, over the water and shine into my sleeping area. Everything was ideal for my young friend and myself - 82 years of age. The visit was too short but I did accomplish what I came for - to visit my friends on the same lane. Thank you.
We love our stay at the Nest House! It was so central to everything on the island and such a great place to come home to everyday. And our dogs were happy to have a place to play safely in the fenced yard. We walked down to the beach every morning and enjoyed the view. Thanks for a great place!
Our thanks to April for sharing her wonderful home with us. To be able to wake up in such a pleasant home each moring, and return to it's coziness each night made our trip so much more relaxing! The location is perfectly located for walks into town, or short day trips with your car around the island. Be sure to check out the kayaking at Crescent Beach a stones throw away, and Nature Preserve path across the road from the beach that takes you up to Mt Baker Rd in about 15 minutes. From there you can turn left on Mt Baker Rd and come back to East Sound itself via North Beach Rd, and then return to the house via Crescent Beach road within an hour(add more time to shop in EastSound).Although spotlessly maintained, you feel so at home in this house. It has a very happy spirit to it.If you can't live without a wifi connection, just go to the library in Eastsound for a free connection. it even works in the parking lot, if they are closed. Hope you have as wonderful a stay as we did!
Beach access to Crescent Beach with nearby kayak rental within easy walking distance. Orcas Island has Magic One, a great bi-plane ride opportunity at the nearby airport.
Orcas has one of the best skateboard parks on the west coast and it's free. A new walking path has just been created just adjacent to the house for more walking options.
