WATERFRONT LUXURY CABIN WITH HOT TUB

Eastsound House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

Private, waterfront, luxury cabin with outdoor hot tub on the beautiful Orcas Island North Shore. Nicknamed Pinecone Cabin, but the house is actually much more than a cabin and larger than it looks!

Vast water views to Canada, the coastal mountains and offshore islands.

Upscale Pacific Northwest, lodge-style furnishings with every amenity.

Eagles in your front yard and salmon at your feet with a trail to your private beach, perfect for shell and driftwood hunters. Dolphins and whales are often seen.

Mooring buoy, no dingy.

We moved to Orcas Island in 1985. We rented this rental sight unseen when it was an extremely modest, one story house and lived in it for three years. When a man from Austria purchased it, he hired us to manage it as a rental. The only change he made was to change the carpeting. After about 15 years, we had the opportunity to purchase this house from him. We named it Pinecone Cabin and remodeled the downstairs and a few years later added on the second story. We decorated the house with all high quality furnishings with a pinecone theme. Folks always say the house is much larger inside than it looks. So we always smile when they and we joke about it being called a 'cabin'. We are pleased this house has come 'full circle' to us.

Karen Key Speck purchased this house in 2002

We have lived on Orcas Island since 1985 and always wanted to own a rental to share with other visitors.

One can enjoy a soak in the outdoor hotub. Turning off its jets, you'll hear only silence. The rental is located conveniently close to town, but is amazingly private with one immediate part-time only neighbor. The views looking north show islands, ocean, mountains and ski resort lights over 40 miles away. The weather presents an ever changing palette. Deer, eagles and raccoons are often on the property. Many have seem Orca whales and dolphins swimming by.

Music week and rehearsal retreat for quintet

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 27, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
Orcas Island was the music education destination for the WindSync Quintet, a group of five virtuoso players, based in Houston, who specialize in creative, engaging, and interactive concerts. As guests of the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival (OICMF) WindSync needed a very special place to stay to allow for both music education outreach on the island as well as focused rehearsal time to prepare for upcoming performances in their northwest tour. Pine Cone Cabin was the perfect island accommodation providing both individual privacy and several "commons" spaces to work together. Plus...the view, the hot tub, ease of access to Eastsound Village - it all worked wonderfully for our guest musicians. OICMF would highly recommend Pine Cone Cabin for similar small work/team group sessions. Thank you K&K for your warm welcome.


based in Houston
Owner's Response: Hi OICMF and WindSync,
Thanks for the lovely feedback. We were quite honored to be home base to the quintet and are gratified that it served them well. We enjoyed their public performances and hope they will return to Orcas soon. Best of luck also to the 2014 Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival. K&K

Had an amazing time

I planned a surprise farewell for my girlfriend at the island. She was leaving Seattle and Orcas was on her bucket list of places to visit. This cabin was just the perfect place to be. The fireplace, hot tub and the VHS tapes were the highlight of our stay! The cabin is well equipped so you don't have to bring a lot of stuff with you. We were a group of 8 and had an amazing time over there. The owners are quite friendly and accommodating. I'll definitely recommend this place.

Thanks for taking the time to write. We're very pleased you chose our home for your special farewell gathering. Come see us again under happier circumstances! K&K

Senior Perspective

We (3 senior couples who travel together each year) just returned from spending a week in The Pine Cone Cabin. After reading all of the 5 star reviews (with which I thoroughly agree), I wasn't going to write anything. What more is there to say? Then I decided to let the reader know that as of August 25, 2013, the charming "cabin", helpful hosts, spectacular view, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, hiking trails through the forest, friendly Eastsound Village, and peace and quiet are still there.

If you want to enjoy a piece of paradise on pastoral Orcas Island viewing sparkling Puget Sound and distant mountain ranges , rent this "cabin"
Owner's Response: Hello - we're glad you decided to echo the sentiments of those who stayed before you! The more the merrier. It makes us proud and happy to share Pinecone Cabin with others. They way you write "cabin" tickles us, as it really is far from a small cabin, isn't it? At about 2200 square feet, everyone has their own bedroom and generous bathroom space, but the views are big enough for many! K&K

The house is fantastic and the view is to die for. Sometimes you don't know what you're getting from pictures, but the pictures tell the "real" story. Plenty of room for our group of 7, each with own private bedroom and bathroom. The property is immaculate and very nicely maintained. Although some may be discouraged from the "lists" of things of do's and don'ts, that's how the property is staying in pristine condition. We saw eagles and baby eagles, seals, and a whale "blow hole" sighting. There is so much to do on Orcas: we headed out everyday for a new destination in the 6 days we were there. The only "downer" is you have to take out your garbage, or pay to have it removed. Never had that at a VRBO in all the years we have been renting. But don't let that dissuade you - this is a FANTASTIC house!!

Owner's Response: We take pride in our home and try to keep it like new year after year.
Thanks for noticing our efforts. We are glad you saw lots of wildlife and had a good stay! Come again!

Perfect spot for our wedding week

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 10, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
Pine Cone Cabin was the perfect spot for our Wisconsin group to stay for our daughter's wedding on Orcas. With 4 bedrooms and a bunk room, we had room for all. All the comforts of home: a well supplied kitchen, lots of spices and supplies, games, books, irons and ironing boards, blow dryers in all the bathrooms, 2 washers and dryers, and to top it all off wireless Internet access. We felt right at home as spent the week finalizing the wedding. It sure was nice to relax in the hot tub at the end of the night. Enjoyed the daily sightings of the eagle, otters, and even saw a whale pass by.
