Northern Lights is a northwest contemporary home built on a knoll in the Raccoon Point area on the north side of Orcas Island. It's named 'Northern Lights, because on a clear night you can see the twinkling lights of Vancouver BC - and possibly even a rare aurora borrealis when the conditions are right! But during the day, you'll always see a beautiful panorama of blue water, neighboring islands, and passing boats. There's also a community beach within a 1/2 mile that guests may visit.
It's a home focused toward the view, with an comfortable open floor plan that encourages everyone to chat while meals are being prepared. A patio runs along the view side of the home, so it's also pleasant to dine outside on a warm summer night while the sun goes down and then come indoors to play games at the dining table! The home has been recently updated with stylish furnishings, finishes, and fixtures that include a new electric range with ceramic cooktop, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave.
The master bedroom is off the living room, with sliding doors that provide access to the front patio. In this bedroom, there's a queen size bed, and an en-suite bathroom with a tub. The second bedroom, also on the main level, has a double bed and connects to a second bathroom with stall shower. (This bathroom also opens to a hallway.)
Upstairs is an open loft with a television (this is for movies only) and a futon that can provide a sleeping area for additional guests. (Note also that there is a wired DSL connection as WIFI is not currently available in this part of the Island. )
Northern Lights is conveniently located within a ten minute drive of the Village of Eastsound where there are plenty of good shops, stores, and restaurants.
