Overview

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.

About Karen Key Speck

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

Why Karen Key Speck chose Eastsound

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

What makes this house unique

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.

The minute we stepped through the door, we knew we were not staying long enough! This house has everything and is beautifully kept. There is not one thing about it that we were not impressed with. The furniture is comfortable and lovely, beds are heavenly, everything spotlessly clean! My husband is still talking about the fabulous and fancy new hot tub. The view is spectacular and the location on the island is perfect. Everything is top knotch about this house. And...bottles of wine from the host to welcome you!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This home proved to be the perfect base for our annual family vacation. The bedrooms, living and dining rooms accommodated our family of 10 very well and the beach proved very adequate for our kayaking adventures. While there we paddled to several nearby islands as well as the most Northwestern point of Orcas. We enjoyed the amenities of Eastsound (museum, ice cream shop, shopping) and the wildlife we saw. (Eagles, sea lions, porpoises, turkeys, deer, etc.)

Fantastic Orcas Island vacation home

  • 5 of 5
We had a cousin family reunion with 12 older (60’s) siblings, cousins and spouses; we rented 2 houses on Orcas Island for a week. The Pinecone Cabin was spacious, clean, comfortable and very well equipped, it accommodated 7 adults in our party perfectly. The setting was gorgeous—we especially enjoyed the decks which enabled awesome views of the water, wildlife, and amazing sunrises and sunsets. We had a wonderful time—thank you for sharing your vacation home!

TERRIFIC

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at several VRBO rentals and this one is one of the best. Location, ambiance, amenities, you name it and it couldn't be better.
The owners have thought of everything. Even two bottles of complimentary wine as a welcome. We were three generations of family and everyone had an extraordinary time. The view is wonderful.
Our grandson-in-law discovered he had lost his wedding ring after we left and it took only a phone call for the cleaners to find it and arrange for it's return. You can't beat that. We would return in a heartbeat. Our thanks to all, the rental agents, the owners, and cleaning personnel.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have you stay at Pinecone Cabin. It's always rewarding to us to bring extended families together to share the beauty of Orcas Island. We hope you will return soon. The eagle and whales are waiting for you! K&K

This house exceeded our expectations. Besides having everything you'd need at your fingertips, the furnishings were very comfortable and the bedrooms quite spacious. Our favorite feature was the view and feeling of seclusion. Because of the way the property is situated, you feel like you're the only house on the island. The view was outstanding. Even if weather prevented outdoor activities for a day, it would be no hardship to stay in and enjoy yourselves.

Music week and rehearsal retreat for quintet

  • 5 of 5
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.

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
