Guestbook comments from the manager
This was one of the best vacations we've had. The house is great, rustic but comfortable. Access to Eastsound so handy and the beach entertained the kids for days. Noone wanted to leave.

After a childhood spent on the island, my family is thrilled to share this gem of a home.

Darcy Whittier purchased this house in 1987

Summertime on Orcas is hard to beat. This private retreat has its own beach, a gorgeous view of the island's tallest mountain, Madrona trees, bald eagles and other wildlife. It is conveniently located only a few minutes walk from the center of Eastsound.

Covered porches with views of the bay, BBQ on the porch, outdoor 8 person hot tub, beachfront BBQ and stone fire pit, charm of a historical farmhouse and a well equipped kitchen. Dig clams and spot sand dollars at low tide in front of the house.

WONDERFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
My wife, daughter and I spent a few nights during spring break here. It's an amazing spot - your own private beach, essentially, and a wonderful yard to play in. Walking the beach every day was just perfect. The house is welcoming and well stocked - the towels are plentiful and fluffy! It was so nice to be able to just walk to Eastsound, too. Darcy was super helpful and informative in the reservations process and leading up to check in. Overall great!

BEAUTIFUL OLE'TIMEY FARM HOUSE ON THE BEACH.

Beautiful Ole'Timey Farm House on the Beach.
  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a comfortable, relaxing, waterfront spot for a mini family vacation (Myself, Wife & 2yr old daughter) and the Madrona House was perfect! This home reminds me of spending Summers of my youth at my Grandparents waterfront home. Only a 5 min walk to the heart of town!! I wish I could've spent more time in the hammock or strolling the beach, but the hottub kept calling me! The views, smell of salt air, wildlife (heron, bald eagles- 5 of them "fishing") and the coziness of this home, was exactly what we needed. Our daughter loved playing on the covered deck and running up and down the very large lawn. We loved it here and intend on returning to Madrona House for future visits to the Island.

PRIVATE PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
2 weeks on orcas this summer in this house was perfect. I worked from the house, family played on the beach and rented kayaks for crabbing. Very comfortable and the view of the bay and Mount Constitution made my "porch office" place feel like a complete oasis.
A few minutes walk from town, nice restaurants, weekend farmers market, and a great coffee and bakery spot called Roses.

Sharing one full bathroom worked out, mainly our group was swimming in the lake and "showering" when they hosed off after playing on the beach.

FALL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We flew in for the weekend, we were 2 couples, tons of good food, wine and greenery. Beautiful and relaxing place. We bought AMAZING oysters from the gas station minutes away, which also happen to be raised on the beach infront of this house. We ate them for almost every meal and had cozy evenings by the fire. Town was quiet (tourist season had ended), the island was lush and green and completely beautiful.

BEST DEAL ON ORCAS

  • 5 of 5
This place is magic. The phosplorescents in the bay at night looked like a scene out of Life of Pi. The caretaker and her adorable dog were lovely. I spent hours lounging on hammock under the apple trees, on the porch's day bed watching the wildlife, the deer, birds and the tides coming and going. The kitchen is really well equipped for a rental and the house was a perfect getaway for our gung-ho gang of outdoors enthusiasts and foodies. The evenings of bonfires with smores, hot tubbing and games in the giant living room were some of the best memories. Such a peaceful and fun place.
