West Sound's public beach, county dock, and yacht club are just across the street.

Stairs to the beach are just steps away for launching kayaks and other water sports.

We have all new furnishings. The studio features a very comfortable queen bed, all new bedding, newly remodeled bathroom, with full tub and shower.

32' flat screen with satellite TV.

There is a love seat and ottoman for relaxation, watching TV, or just reading a book in front of the gas fireplace.

If you need a rental car, Orcas Island Shuttle has cars and mini vans.

Moran State Park has 5 beautiful lakes and 35 miles of trails for hiking and biking.

While in the park, don't miss the summit of Mt. Constitution. Climb the tower for endless views at 2409'.

Turtleback Mt. is literally in your backyard for another incredible hike.

There are many great dining options on Orcas Island. We would be happy to help with recommendations and reservations.

You can find rentals for sea kayaks, mountain bikes, and even mopeds for further adventures.

Perfect Get Away at a Great Value

  • 5 of 5
I had the great pleasure of staying at the Crow's Nest in early November. It was my first time on Orcas Island and I couldn't have asked for a better location, more comfortable stay, or more convenient arrangements. The Nest is just that, a perfect little nest for one or two people. The Nest is spacious with lots of natural light and windows/french doors with amazing views of the bay...you can even watch the seaplanes land and approach the nearby marina. The whole place feels clean and cozy. I was traveling in the off season so it wasn't busy at any of the places I visited....but the weather was wonderful and the air crisp and the skies clear. Don't be put off by fall in the Pacific Northwest. Having the private deck overlooking everything in the bay was a special treat (the fishmonger was stationed at the dock during my visit - a tasty treat for fish lovers!!) You can even look out at the bay from the bed!! The morning sounds and light are just wonderful. The Nest is well situated to all locations on the Island. However, the immediate area isn't busy with tourists once the ferry traffic heading to Deer Harbor disperses. Having said that, if you are looking to go out to breakfast or dinner in the off season, be prepared to drive to the East Sound or to the Orcas Hotel. Some options are dinner only, and in some cases only on the weekends. But, to be fair, this is totally understandable as it's the low tourist season. The Crow's Nest owners are great to work with and make everything so simple and convenient. It's the perfect getaway for adventures on/around the island(s), a romantic weekend, or a quiet locale for sitting back with a great glass of wine, a good book, and an amazing view. The gas fireplace/stove is an added perk to chase away the slight chill in the fall and night air. I almost hate writing this review because I don't want this gem to be spoiled by constant bookings....but it should be shared. The prices are beyond fair. Unless you are expecting the Four Seasons and want someone to wait on you, you won't be disappointed. The owners have created the perfect little oasis on the Island. In short, it fit my needs perfectly in every way.

Perfect! Private! Quiet! Excellent Value!

  • 5 of 5
We had a few days where we both had time off together, a rare thing these days. I suggested we head up to Orcas, as it had been about 16 years since we last were there, and the weather looked promising. Found this little place, and it was available. Contacted them and booked it, then headed on out there.

When we checked in it was a pleasant surprise. There is a non profit environmental group downstairs, so there are no other people around. The room is perfectly appointed, very clean, and has many things that we did not expect. There is a Keurig coffee machine complete with a great selection of K-cups. The kitchenette had everything we needed to have coffee in the morning, and fix a light breakfast. (No pots and pans, as the owners feel that the smells and mess from that type of food prep may be a problem. OK by us though, as we had lunch and dinner out each day.)

The TV was perfect, HD Direct service. There is also high speed internet for those who simply cannot leave the virtual world behind.

The bed was also excellent, like sleeping on a cloud. Not too firm, not too soft, just right.

There is a gas fireplace if it gets too chilly at night, makes for a very cozy atmosphere.

The bathroom and shower were just like at home. Everything we needed was there, large and soft fluffy towels, washcloths, hand towels, even soap in the sink and the shower had a dispenser with body wash, shampoo and conditioner!

The view of the bay and marina is nice, although the local power and cable companies need to bury their stuff to clean it up some. No worries though, I can clone that stuff out in Photoshop later!

There is a restaurant next door, the West Sound Café. Great food, but the service was a bit slow. But on Orcas everything is close, only a short drive away. And if you come by boat there is a public dock a very short walk away, about 150 yards.

You can put in your kayak right there if that is your thing. We will bring ours the next time we come out there. It is also a great starting point for bicycling.

Yes, the Crow's Nest is the perfect getaway for a couple that likes a quiet and private place to stay on the island, and the price was reasonable too.

So the next time you stay on Orcas, give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

We will definitely stay there again!

Excellent spring get away

  • 5 of 5
The amenities were better than described. The Crow’s nest is set apart from the hustle and bustle of town and there is a great hike, with the trailhead about a half mile away. Beautiful view of the ocean, and owners were very nice and informative about the area.

Perfect place to unwind!

  • 5 of 5
I spent two nights at the Crows Nest to unwind. Mission accomplished! This little studio has everything one needs. It's close to the ferry and to town. It's so quiet and peaceful. I highly recommend paying the Crows Nest a visit. I know I'll be back.

January Escape

  • 4 of 5
We spent two nights in this cozy studio and were very pleased. The room is attractive, well-heated, clean and set up for comfort. The coffee on hand was much appreciated and we sat mesmerized by the morning light and the view of the inlet. Communication with the owners was quick and clear. The spot is convenient to Turtleback Mtn. which has a nice trail up. The only criticism we had (and it is small) was that we couldn't find any pots or pans to cook up a breakfast and so were limited to using the microwave for frozen dinners.

Exactly What You Want

  • 5 of 5
The Crows Nest was easy to find, spotless and extremely cozy and warm. It rained our entire weekend there but we didn't care. We turned on the fireplace and watched the rain outside. The owner was in touch with me quickly and extremely friendly. We will definitely be back. Thank you!
