Orcas House Rental Photos and Description
House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Located at Orcas Village, the Ferry View Cottage is just steps away from the Washington State Ferry Terminal dock, and offers a sweeping vista of Orcas Landing, Harney Channel, and Shaw Island. This quaint cottage has it's own cozy deck from which guests can watch the passing boats, seals, seabirds and bald eagles. The cottage is perfectly located to explore Orcas Island and the neighboring islands of Shaw, Lopez, and San Juan. As a foot passenger simply walk out the door and onto the ferry, or have the option to leave your vehicle in line while you have a comfortable place to wait for boarding. Being one of a handful of vacation rentals on Orcas that is within walking distance of the ferry, guests may also choose to leave their vehicle on the mainland and instead use island taxi service or public transportation. The village at Orcas Landing is comprised of a full service grocery store, gift shop, moped rentals, an excellent whale watching charter company, and the historic Orcas Hotel that features a bakery cafe and bistro with live music every Friday evening. A San Juan County public dock is located just next to the ferry dock, which allows easy launching of personal kayaks if guests wish to bring them. Swimming in the very cool waters of North Puget Sound is advised only for the most hardy, but only thirty minutes away at Moran State Park are two fresh-water swimming lakes and 32 miles of hiking trails. On the way to Moran State Park, guests can stop and explore beautiful Eastsound, the main town on Orcas Island. This one-room cottage includes two comfortable queen beds, a full bathroom with shower, a sitting and dining area with glass doors that open onto a south-facing deck. After a full day of perusing the local potteries and craft studios, or perhaps a guided whale watch tour, relax at the cottage with wifi and a collection of books to choose from. Ferry View Cottage is your escape getaway to Orcas and all the San Juan Islands. Come stay for two nights or two weeks!
