JAK's Cottage is a beautiful two bedroom and one bathroom renovated 1940's Orcas Island Fishermans Cottage. In fact, Captain Peterson lived in JAK's Cottage from the late 1940's through the late 1980's. He would set his nets in the sound and then sell his catch of Fish and Oysters from the Cottage driveway.
JAK's Cottage has over 400 feet of private waterfront, easily accessible from your own private beach trail.
Outdoor furniture, chairs, tables, lounges are located throughout the property. A gas BBQ is available for our guests who like to grill.
After looking for many years for a quintessential Orcas Island fisherman's cottage, we found a beautiful 1940's waterfront property on almost 1.5 acres of private waterfront, all within walking distance of the village of Eastsound.
We purchased JAK's Cottage in the summer of 2011 and since aquiring the property, it has gone through some extensive remodeling. A brand new beautifully redesigned bathroom with deep soaking tub, subway tile surrounds and granite counters and of course, luxurious amenities. A lovely kitchen with dishwasher and all the toys needed for gourmet cooking, as well as a new laundry room with stackable washer and dryer are now in place for our guests use. Other major upgrades include a new facade, new floors and new windows and doors. The Cottage has been repainted inside and out, decks have been refurbished and of course the landscaped yards have also been upgraded to reflect a more peaceful time.
A beautiful gas fireplace has been added to the Living Room so you can enjoy cozy evenings at home while dining and enjoying views of the sound.
The private deck off the Living Room and Master Bedroom is a wonderful place to enjoy breakfast and view the peaceful unobstructed water views.
JAK's has superb water views of Eastsound, a wonderful private beach and tide pools. The private beach at JAK's is great for launching your Kayak or easy access for windsurfing. We have applied for buoy placement and hope to soon have a private buoy available for our guests who choose to arrive in their own boat. Try your hand at beach fishing, clamming or crabbing; Washington State Game and Fish regulations apply.
The owners of JAK's Cottage have a lengthy history of providing quality lodging and amenities to our very special guests.
In 1995, Jim Sankey and Ken Conant designed and built The Red Setter Inn and Cottages in Greer, Arizona and for thirteen years, owners Jim and Ken operated the Inn and Cottages. This property was top notch and coveted a Fodors 'Top Ten in the World' award and many other 'Best' awards from various publications throughout the country.
