COTTAGE-IN-THE-BARN ON DRAGONFLY FARM

West Sound Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Go back in time on our quintessential island farm: sweet accommodations, garden at your doorstep, pond with kayaks and canoe, and complete tranquility and privacy. This charming cottage has all amenities in a pastoral setting; the perfect secluded hub for your island adventures, equally well-suited for a family vacation or romantic get-away. Tucked away in a valley below our main house, it is adjacent to our garden with produce for your table. Feel free to stroll to the bluff for views of West Sound, or take the canoe and kayaks for a spin. Fall asleep to the lullaby frog chorus. With the pond and plethora of beautiful vegetation, our 25 acre farm has become a bird sanctuary, with hundreds of species throughout the seasons. This one bedroom plus loft apartment is well-appointed with quality furnishings including antiques. Queen bed in the bedroom and two twins in the loft above (accessible by ladder). Full kitchen, propane barbeque, flatscreen and blue-ray player for entertainment, wireless internet connection, and warmth from the wood stove. AND our 25 acre farm adjoins Turtleback Mountain Preserve! This island treasure has amazing hikes which vary from old forested areas to phenomenal vistas of neighboring islands and beyond. We are located just five miles from the ferry, five miles from the main village of Eastsound, and a mere 1 1/2 miles from the waters at West Sound, including a marina and private dock for moorage.

We are long time Orcas Islanders -- Wally grew up on Orcas and Susan was drawn here because of summers with her grandparents on nearby Samish Island. The natural beauty was our initial attraction in building a life here, but the wonderful community of eclectic neighbors have kept us here. It has been a great place to raise our family.

Susan Gudgell purchased this cottage in 1994

We both have long family histories in the islands. We heard about this property 20+ years ago, tucked away on Turtleback Mountain, and came to take a look. Standing on the bluff, looking at West Sound to the south, and the moonrise over Mt. Woolard to the east, we said, 'this is where we want to spend the rest of our lives.' Pure magic.

Experience serenity here on the farm, taking walks to view lovely vistas, gathering your salad from the garden, breakfast from the chicken coop, and paddling around the pond. For your adventures, this is centrally located on Orcas Island, close to the ferry, close to Eastsound, and just minutes from Turtleback Mountain Preserve. Less than 15 miles from historic Rosario Resort and Moran State Park.

Snow on Orcas Island in March...who would have thought?

My friend and I had a great time even with the cold winds and snow. The cabin was cozy with a fire, clean, and the owners exceptional in responding to our questions. Although I am more the "on the waterfront" gal, my friend really resonated with the cabin in the meadow get away and it was just right for that experience. Every thing we needed. Thank you, so much!

Cozy and Private

This is a great place to stay on Orcas. It is very cozy, clean, and private. My husband, our dog, and I had a great time walking the property and feeding the chickens. TurtleBack Mountain is a great hike with beautiful views of the Sound and surrounding islands and the south trailhead is only two miles away and the north trailhead only one mile away. The owner was very nice, easy to reach (even on Christmas Eve), and accommodating.

We had a wonderful stay at the Cottage in the Barn! The location is ideal and the setting is unreal. So rustic, charming, secluded and cozy. I loved every minute of our week long stay. Didn't want to leave! If I am ever on Orcas Island again, this will be my "go to" location to stay! The owners are fantastic and are very helpful! I would recommend this property to anyone!
