About Karen Key Speck

I first visited Orcas Island as a 10 year old child staying at a summer camp. My wonderful memories brought my husband and me to the island again when our children were toddlers. We had such a delightful time that we looked for property to buy for ourselves. In 1969, because of its seclusion and view, we bought a lot at Raccoon Point. Our Lindal Cedar Home was built on it in 1972. Only 2 or 3 families came out to Raccoon Point for many years. We had a completely private beach, watched the whales, otters, seals, eagles, deer, enjoyed Mt Baker in the rising and setting sun, saw the ships passing in the distance and the kayakers and fishermen fishing from their boats. The beach is still private with only a few dinghies and kayaks pulled up on shore. Low tide uncovers starfish, sea anemones, barnacles, crabs, and other tide pool life. Driftwood abounds while the beach is forever being changed by the tides. The peacefulness, the views, the beach are the same way today as 40 years ago.

Karen Key Speck purchased this house in 1969

Why Karen Key Speck chose Eastsound

Once you arrive at the Cedar House, you may take off your wrist watch, then forget about time and not put your watch back on until it is time to catch the ferry to the mainland.

Four longtime friends had a wonderful short stay in September. Quiet and cozy. Loved the deck overlooking the beautiful water.

Overlooks the sound

  • 5 of 5
Beautifully situated on the northeast side of the island, it has 2 sides with unobstructed view of the water. Not overly large, but it was comfortable for the 6 of us and accurately described. We were visited by bald eagles, harbor seals, and a mink. It has a secluded feel even with the neighbors. The drive from town seems long at first (gravel road with turns and 15 mph speed limit) but isn't a factor. Many of the roads on the island are slow and this house is closer than many. Look out for turkeys on the road! We would like to return.
