Overview

Eastsound House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Enjoy your vacation in this delightful, lovingly renovated vintage island home! Built by settlers in 1908, it embodies the fascinating history of these beautiful San Juan Islands. The house is centrally located in Orcas Island's Eastsound Village -- called one of the most charming travel destinations in America. Fenced yard with lovely landscaping ensures your privacy, while enjoying proximity to all conveniences. This coastal classic is equally appealing for a romantic get-away, or for a gathering of family and friends.

Stroll to Orcas Island's Farmer's Market and barbeque on your deck, or enjoy a meal in one of Eastsound's heralded restaurants offering world-class cuisine. A bookstore and lattes are just around the corner, and whalewatch tours and/or kayak rentals can be arranged nearby. Walk to the public dock just yards away for boating excursions. Watch sunsets, eagles, and the abundant wildlife around Indian Island. Facing southwest, your view includes the bay, shoreline of picturesque Eastsound, and unmatched island sunsets. Only 10 miles from the ferry landing, and 10 miles from majestic Moran State Park and Mt. Constitution, this location is really the perfect hub for your trip.

Four bedrooms offer lots of privacy, with one bedroom on the ground floor and three upstairs. Master bedroom overlooks the gorgeous view. Fully equipped kitchen with all amenities. Large flatscreen TV's in the living room and downstairs bedroom. Enjoy a drink on the deck and absorb the magic of Orcas Island. We look forward to welcoming you!

(Well-behaved pets welcome).

About Susan Gudgell

We have been on Orcas Island for many decades (in fact Wally grew up here!) so are true islanders. We can suggest not only major travel activites, but little known gems on island backroads. We are raising two daughters here -- no better place in the world!

Susan Gudgell purchased this house in 2006

Why Susan Gudgell chose Eastsound

We have always loved this house as it is an intrinsic architectural element on the charming Eastsound shoreline. We welcomed the opportunity to restore it to its original glory.

What makes this house unique

Sipping coffee or a glass of wine on the deck, breathing in that clear island air, and contemplating the view! We also love wandering around the village, hiking in the Turtleback Mountain Reserve, and exploring Moran State Park. We know many of the restauranteurs in town and love the many delicious varied options for an evening out.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for helping make our first trip to Orcas Island such a pleasant one. The Homestead was a great place to relax and unwind, and the location was perfect for exploring the rest of Orcas. Thanks again and hope to be back in the future!

Great home on Eastsound

  • 5 of 5
We had an incredible time on Orcas Island staying at the Homestead. Susan is very easy to work with. We felt like we were at home immediately. The kitchen had everything we needed and wanted. The home was clean and tastefully decorated. The views and outdoor area could not have been better. It was great to be able to walk across the street to the grocery store (that had all the organic foods we wanted) without noise or congestion. We were a family of four adults, one toddler and an infant and had more than enough space for all. It was great that we could be downstairs in the evening and our noise could not at all be heard upstairs. Thank you, Susan, for provided a lovely retreat for our family.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the house for my family while on the island for a wedding. The house is beautiful--spacious, light, well kept. We had 8 adults and 1 toddler in the house and never felt cramped. The house has an incredible deck, a small yard that has lots of outdoor seating, and a great view of the Eastsound bay. It is also a few minutes walk from Eastsound, including the grocery store, and all the tasty places to eat. I cannot wait for another excuse to stay at the Homestead.

The most perfect vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at The Homestead for two nights in May. It was the perfect getaway and I hope to return every year for a minimum of a week! You couldn't ask for a better location and more comfortable accommodation for a group of people of all ages. It was very clean and well stocked. There are grocery stores and wonderful restaurants in walking distance and the view from the balcony is heaven! Staying here will be your best decision.

We recently stayed in this home for my daughter's wedding. The home was fabulous for events inside and outside the home on the deck, walking to downtown, grocery shopping, close to wedding site, beautiful views all throughout the day, close to all the vendors we were using who knew the property well and personally delivered, a very responsive landlord for events unrelated to the house, the house was beautifully furnished with all the basic necessities, the back deck was a wonderful gathering place for our many visitors throughout the weekend, I highly recommend this property.
