We have been visiting the San Juan Islands for well over a decade, forged new friendships here and even got married at Rosario Mansion! Orcas Island is without a doubt the jewel of the San Juan Islands..... we just have to keep coming back!
Madrona House is owned by two couples. Craig, Sybil, Paul & Henriette. We all live in Portland, OR and between us have 4 children.
The Owner purchased this house in 2000
We bought the land over 17 years ago after looking at many different areas on Orcas. None seemed 'quite right', but when we found this jewel we knew instantly that it was what we had been looking for. Not thinking we would be able to afford to build a home here for many many years, we mentioned this to good friends of ours at a dinner party; an unexpected new partnership emerged. As two young couples, we joined forces and made our dreams come true and designed and built our getaway. It has even been featured in Sunset magazine!
Peace and comfort, but mostly family time with minimal disruptions of the every day 'hub bub' called TV/computers/phones/chores/homework. Every time we are here we spend time reconnecting with each other. The simple pleasure of spending the day on a hike or a swim, reading together in the same room or playing games makes our memories at Madrona House priceless.
Great stay! A really nice location and a well stocked vacation home. We can't wait to come back!
we loved this place; both my boyfriend and i decided that we wanted a space like it for ourselves some day (for more than a few nights on vacation, that is!). nice to come home to and to cook our own meals occasionally in, and to just enjoy hanging out in such a comfortable, attractive space with terrific light. and also great to have it as a home base to explore the lovely island from - some of it afoot by setting out hiking from the house, with a trailhead only minutes away on foot! it was a splurge for our budget, but one that was well worth it. would love to enjoy it again some day.
Very enjoyable stay at the Madrona House and good location for seeing the island. Only disappointment was the TV screen while watching a movie. It was very fuzzy and could have been a loose wire but I didn't check that out.
Beautiful and well maintained property very close to many attractions on Orcas Island. It was so relaxing to hang out there on the deck after exploring, and it was easy to prepare dinner in the well stocked kitchen. Great location and home!
Lovely site. peaceful, with wildlife, great access to Moran State park and trails. Kitchen is well stocked and great to use. The layout of bedrooms and bathrooms in the house is a bit awkward. Water is reclaimed so has a strong smell.
A very well thought-out house, we love the light, the surroundings, the welcoming and warm feel. Plenty of room, comfortable beds and furnishings, full kitchen which works. Laundry!! This property is close to the lively village of Eastsound. We will return, and recommend this place to anyone seeking a really sweet location to enjoy.
