Overview

Rosario House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + 1 Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Madrona House is nestled amongst fir and maple trees with a sweeping filtered view of the Sound. This home was featured in Sunset Magazine and built with meticulous attention to detail and comfort. From the gourmet kitchen to the decadent queen bed, you cannot help but feel pampered. Relax and recharge in this beautiful home on this prime location.

A five minute walk leads you straight into Moran State Park with endless trails to enjoy by foot or bicycle. Trails for every age and ability are right here on your doorstep. Take a picnic and walk with young children to the swim park and playground at Cascade Lake, or hike up Mt Constition for breathtaking views from Canada to the Olympic Peninsula. A ten minute walk takes you straight to the Historic Rosario Mansion for fine dining and music, or just simply enjoy a stroll to the Marina or the view from the deck.

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Rosario

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!

What makes this house unique

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.

a dream cabin

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a memorable trip. Being able to walk directly to Moran State Park is so great. I love not having to drive everywhere to get access to the lake and hiking. Hope to see you back!

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.

Owner's Response: Happy to hear you had a relaxing stay and were able to enjoy such easy access to Moran State Park. It's always a treat to be able to wake up and walk straight to the park. We have addressed the odor of the water.

Fantastic vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

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.
