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

Orcas Island is magic. 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.

Partially covered porch with view of the lawn and 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.

Secret Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5
What an awesome property! Pictures don't do it justice. It is very secluded yet very close to town. The private beach, fire pit and hot tub were awesome. Couldn't find anything else like it! Can't wait to come back. Highly recommend.

Lovely family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a beautiful 5 night stay at this lovely property. Our only complaint is that we didn't book it for longer! We had 6 in our party - 3 children (ages 7-12) and 3 adults. The house is a well-kept old farmhouse with so much charm and ample room for us all. The location is amazing. Seriously, less than a 5 minute walk into town (Brown Bear Baking pastries and lattes for breakfast!) but back at the house, we felt completely secluded. (Faint traffic noise from nearby road but the trees and natural shape of the bay keep it minimal.) Even more amazing is the big lawn and beach front. The kids spent hours roaming the shores for shells. We dug up clams at low tide and made clam chowder. (You can walk all the way around the bay then!) Even if you hardly pull any clams out of the sand, just looking for the holes and "spirts" is an adventure in itself. This is a perfect property for kids of all ages - even toddlers. Loads of space to wander around safely while adults can sit and keep watch. Every evening we had a special guest for our dinner out on the porch: a bald eagle (who we named "Sam") sat high in a nearby tree. Easy drive (20min?) to Moran State Park with hiking and swimming in the lakes. We had sunny, warm weather while we were there, but even if it had been cloudy and colder, the house and location are perfect for sitting and reading (partially covered porch,) playing games, walking on the beach etc. ( Oh! And the hot tub! - cannot forget the hot tub.)

The one thing to know in advance is that since this is a turn of the century farmhouse, the bedrooms (all upstairs) do not open up into a central hallway. This is a classic design for its time and I'm glad the owners didn't remodel it but it is quite different from modern home design. This means that the bedrooms open up into each other in a circle. So the bunk bed room opens onto the hallway and into the queen bedroom. Then the queen bed room opens up into the upstairs 1/2 bath which then opens up into the king bedroom which opens up again into the hallway. If you are turned around by that description, it just means that to get to the queen bed room or bathroom you have to go through another bedroom (king or bunk bed.) Not a problem for us at all as we just shuffled around who slept where for the best privacy.

My husband is from the Seattle area and spent his summers on Orcas growing up. He loved it and we will definitely return next summer for a full week!

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.

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.
