About The Owner

Hello! We are Susan and Charles and have lived in the Northwest for 11 years. We both recently retired and enjoy all that the region has to offer. Charles is an ardent bike rider and Susan a hiker. We are avid outdoor people and enjoy the abundant wildlife and scenic beauty of the region. We are also both 'people persons' and enjoy very much providing a quality vacation experience with every possible comfort in a beautiful home.

The Owner purchased this house in 1996

Why The Owner chose Rosario

Susan is from the U.K. originally and after vacationing in the Northwest, saw the similarity to certain places in the British Isles and we both new this was where we would both retire. Orcas Island is very unique in that it not only abounds with scenic beauty and amazing wildlife, but there are many cultural opportunities such as concerts and theater, not to mention wonderful shops, galleries and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

'Dancing Deer' is a beautifully maintained home with all sorts of 'creature comforts'. Our priorities are comfort and quality. The house is very private, spacious and filled with natural southerly light. We have 2 decks both with comfortable lounging and dining furniture, so guests can relax and enjoy the amazing southerly view. We are walking distance from the beach at Rosario, Cascade Lake and Moran State Park and only a 10 minute drive from the amenities of Eastsound. We have deer that live on our property and provide our 4 grandchildren with hours of enjoyment, and many wildlife visitors including eagles and other birds. The 'suite' provides a second living area for games and videos and a great hang-out place for kids!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank-you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. Our first impression was this amazing view. We had so much fun feeding the deer that live here. We had a great time playing games and reading out on the gorgeous deck."

Bend, Oregon.

Beautiful home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5
This is my fourth visit to Orcas but the first time I've stayed at Dancing Deer. The house is beautiful; it has all of the atmosphere of a much loved family home. It was spotlessly clean, well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing vacation - there's even a supply of children's games. The beds were wonderfully comfy and each bedroom was either en-suite or close to a bathroom.
If you're lucky enough to occupy the master bedroom then you'll wake up each morning to views of Rosario Bay - a perfect reminder of how much Orcas has to offer. Moran Park is close by, Cascade Lake is within easy walking distance and Eastsound is a short drive away.
I am from England and visit family who live on Orcas, it is always a nightmare trying to sort trans-atlantic holiday home deposits and payments. However, the owners Susan & Charles were so helpful and patient, they responded to my many email promptly and let me know immediately my wired payments reached their bank account.
I would recommend anyone planning an Orcas vacation to consider staying at Dancing Deer, I have previously stayed in two other Orcas properties but in future this will always be my first choice.

It's Not Just the Deer Who Are Dancing

It's Not Just the Deer Who Are Dancing
  • 5 of 5
As a big birthday treat, my husband and I chose Dancing Deer over other properties in the San Juans ... and we're so very glad we did! The house, with its enormous glass wall of windows overlooking the water, is just glorious. From the loft bedroom upstairs, you can choose to watch the dawning of the day (or, if a guest prefers lots of shut-eye, the blinds work just fine).
The owners are top-notch: all questions are cheerfully and promptly answered with a spirit of warmth and humor. While some rental properties can make vacationers feel like intruders, this is not the case at Dancing Deer. It's as if we're the treasured, invited guests that Dancing Deer purposely invited in.
The property is perfectly situated between downtown Eastsound and the southern shores, while Moran State Park is literally just down the road. Putting it succinctly: You couldn't do better!
Lastly, a question: Can we come back tomorrow?

Dancing Deer - delightful

  • 5 of 5
This was our third visit to Orcas Island, but our first time at Dancing Deer. From our first inquiry about availability through the prompt return of our deposit after our stay, the owners (Susan and Charles Stewart) couldn't have been kinder, more hospitable, or more professional. If we have the good fortune to return some day, Dancing Deer would be our first choice. The house was lovely and comfortable; everything was in perfect working order and as advertised -- or better. We appreciated their pet friendly policy, too. One observation to share -- The house's three levels allowed all of us some space and privacy (as well as wonderful views), but those with mobility issues might have trouble with the number of stairs inside and out.

My husband and I came here for our 4th Anniversary. What a Wonderful spot we
found. The house was just great! Very clean and very well maintained. Our dog
loved being outside on the deck and not having to be tied up. It was very
relaxing for us- we loved to just spend most of our time on the deck looking
at the great views. I would recommend this house to anyone. Would definetly stay
again. Thanks so much for the use of your home. Linda and Ray

Simply Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5
This is the best location for anyone staying on Orcas Island! Just a few step away from Moran Park. Even if you stayed by the house your entire vacation the large private lot is breathtaking alone. The house was meticulous when we arrived and the owners were an absolute pleasure to work with. This is one of the best experiences I've had with a vacation rental. Thanks Dancing Deer!!!

Wonderful island and vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
The accommodations at Dancing Deer made for a relaxing vacation and homey get away. The view from the spacious deck was amazing and in the morning we were able to view the grazing deer in the front yard. We relaxed and enjoyed evening bar-b-ques on the deck while watching the sun set with a glass of wine. I would recommend Dancing Deer and Orcas Island to anyone ready to get away from the hustle, bustle and fast paced life.
