|Minimum Stay||2 - 4 nights|
This lovely Craftsman-style vacation home on Orcas Island is a little piece of paradise. Influenced by the Arts and Crafts design movement of the early 20th century, the interior is open and warm, with hardwood floors, stained glass accents, and exposed woodwork. A pleasing spot both inside and out, up to six guests will greatly enjoy a stay at the aptly named Discovery View Cabin.
The main floor is a bright and light filled open concept living room, dining room and kitchen with ten foot high ceilings. The living room includes large windows and Mission-style wood furniture with comfortable cushions, colorful throw rugs and a beautifully tiled gas fireplace. Pick a cozy spot to settle in, choose a book or game from the many shelves, and relax. There is a stereo with iPod dock, cable TV, Roku with Netflix, and a DVD player, so you'll have no shortage of entertainment for those cold, stormy days. There is also WiFi to check work emails, research possible island excursions, or find a new salmon recipe for dinner.
The home itself is well-equipped to entertain you both indoors and out! You'll find two adult bikes and two single-person kayaks (with paddles) for exploring all areas of the island. There's also a volleyball kit, badminton kit, tennis gear (two rackets and balls), beach chairs, and an umbrella to make the most of your time outdoors.
The kitchen has butcher block counters, colorful mugs for coffee, and even a cookbook collection for culinary inspiration! All the appliances you need to create tasty vacation meals are right at your fingertips. The nearby dining room table seats six and is open to the living area, making it easy to spread out and socialize. Glass French doors off the dining room lead out to a large deck with a west view of the saltwater bay of Eastsound through the forested landscape. On the south side of the house, off the living room, is a sunny brick patio surrounded by rosemary, lavender, and fir trees. On sunny days, you can dine al fresco and breathe in the fresh Puget Sound air!
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, all with queen sized beds, soft bedding and decorative touches throughout each room. There is a beautiful water view through the trees. The two bathrooms are also located upstairs and feature white hexagonal tile floor, pedestal sinks, framed botanical drawings, and walk-in showers.
Orcas Island is 57 square miles of scenic hills, lakes, sea views, and forests. Like the other three main islands in the San Juan Island archipelago, it is accessible by the Washington Sate Ferry, private boat, or plane.
Less than five miles away, you'll want to spend plenty of time walking around picturesque Eastsound, the largest town on the island. Here you will find historic homes and buildings, some dating back to the late 1800s. This charming village has many art galleries, museums, shops, bookstores, cafes and restaurants. Don't miss the other smaller towns of Olga, Deer Harbor and Orcas Village. Dining out on Orcas Island offers a variety of choices, ranging from casual cafes to some of the finest restaurants in the Northwest.
Outdoor activities on Orcas Island include golfing at Orcas Island Golf Course, biking the rolling island hills, horseback riding, whale watching, kayaking, beach combing and bird watching. Located just minutes from the cabin, Moran State Park has over 5,000 acres of forest and almost 40 miles of trails to explore. Besides hiking the many nature trails, this is a popular destination for lake swimming, boating, fishing, and picnicking. Up for a challenge? Hike or drive to the 2,400 foot summit of Mount Constitution and gaze out over both the US and Canada!
Leave your stressors behind, come rejuvenate, and create lasting memories in this little piece of paradise.

This home is not in walking distance of restaurants, etc, but it is short drive to Eastsound, Olga, Doe Bay and Moran State Park. The views are superb although the home is not right on the water. The black-tailed deer walked right through the property and we had a great view of a soaring eagle. The home and furnishings are beautiful and so comfortable. We would definitely stay here again!
This vacation home was perfect for our needs. It was exceptionally clean and very well furnished. It has three large bedrooms with comfortable beds. I would definitely recommend this for families with young children or teenagers as well.
We came here to celebrate our parents' 50th anniversary with them and our kids. We loved exploring Orcas, but equally enjoyed our time relaxing in the house, playing games, reading, cooking in the spacious kitchen, watching the deer. and enjoying cocktails on the deck. The house was clean, the kitchen well-stocked, and the books and games made it feel like our own vacation house. We really loved the "great room" layout and the mission style and décor. We loved our time there and plan to recommend it to friends and family.
We really enjoyed staying here with our infant and two other families with babies. The house feels so spacious and airy and still cozy. The back deck was great for hanging out and watching the sunset. Everything worked well inside. Thanks for a great stay.
The home and surrounding area is beautiful. The owners clearly care about the comfort of their guests; the home is clean, light, beautifully decorated and full of nice touches that made us feel at home. Three generations of our small family, ages 11 to 71 were there and everyone was happy. The neighbors were friendly too! It was a little far from the beach, but very close to Moran State Park where we spent a lot of time.
This home was fabulous. High ceilings. Quality furnishings. A back deck with views of the trees and bright stars at night. A big and well stocked kitchen. It even smelled new and fresh! We will definitely come back. I would recommend this home for large families or for couples who want privacy. You do not have a water view but Orcas IS an island and the water is just minutes away!
