Overview

Orcas Island House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, 10 minute walk to Eastsound Village and 5 min to Beach Park

Conveniently located, 10 minute walk to the village of Eastsound and 5 minutes walk to the beach at Waterfront Park, charming Huckleberry House is comfortably equipped to be your Orcas Island home away from home!

From a south-facing slope, we overlook the bay beautifully filtered by mature native trees from the living, dining and loft areas.

Centrally located halfway between Moran State Park and the ferry landing, the Eastsound area's many restaurants, shops and activities make it an ideal home base for island visitors. A scenic 15 minute drive takes you to Moran State Park with miles of hiking trails and beautiful Cascade Lake which offers swimming, fishing and boat rentals.

Fully furnished including leather sofas, new 40' flat screen smart TV with DVD and free WIFI. A well-equipped kitchen with washer and dryer, and spacious dining area. Plus two queen bedrooms, one in an upstairs loft with a tree-filtered view of East Sound Bay. The lofted, exposed beam ceilings, and fir trim on battened walls give our charming craftsman home a bright and cozy atmosphere.

Huckleberry House is the perfect spot for a relaxing stay on Orcas in any season, or an ideal starting point for your exploration of all the San Juan Islands.

About Pamela Guyer

Pam & Steve on Cascade Lake Bridge, Moran State Park, Orcas Island

Pamela Guyer purchased this house in 2006

Why Pamela Guyer chose Orcas Island

Welcome to Huckleberry House!

We purchased it in 2006 when we were compelled by family issues to return to the mainland after a short but delightful six years of living in the islands. It was a way for us to keep our 'foot in the door' and have a place to stay while visiting the good friends we made while we lived here. You'd never know it if I didn't tell you, but it was actually built in the 60's and completely renovated inside and out shortly before we purchased it. We really like that it's lived on the island so long. We also really enjoy the central location. When we lived here, we were on an outer island and Eastsound was an hour away, so it's a big treat for us to be able to walk into 'town' on a whim. We love Orcas because it provides the best of both worlds; amazing outdoor scenery and activities as well as good eats and fun shops. I know you'll find our house and Orcas Island as relaxing and charming as we do.

Cheers!

What makes this house unique

May I just say location, location, location!!!

Staying right in the center of Orcas Island gives you easy access to the 'ends' of the island if you'd like to explore during your visit. And if you'd rather stay home and relax at the house, it's really nice to be so close to the village that you can easily walk or drive there in a few minutes for coffee or a little shopping or a meal or the groceries to make one back at the house.

Enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks! It was a lovely place, just the right size for our family,

and very well appointed. I like how it felt private and secluded, back in

the woods in a small cabin community, but was so close to town. We

especially loved watching the hummingbird turf wars off the deck. Also, we

heard a pair of great horned owls hooting last night, one sounded rather

close. Maybe there's a nest nearby!

Beautiful Home and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with another couple stayed for 3 nights at this lovely home. The house was as pictured, clean, comfortable and really nicely stocked up in the kitchen. We cooked our dinners there and enjoyed sitting on the deck. During the day, we could easily walk into Eastsound and also tour around the Island. We would definitely return for another stay and recommend it to others! Pamela was also great to deal with and was responsive and helpful as we planned for our stay.

Great house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed on Orcas Island for 4 days and 3 nights. The house was perfect for our visit and couldn't have been in a better location. Easy access to Eastsound and all the town has to offer. The house was quiet and comfy, just the right size for us. My daughter loved the loft bedroom. If we return we would definitely try to book this house.

A cozy, light, beautifully appointed home!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, memorable extended weekend here at Huckleberry house!!

We cooked every meal in, and found every pot, pan and bowl we needed! Super well appointed kitchen!

I loved every bit of the decor, the beds were super comfortable and the space was light, cozy and homey!

You can tell great thought has gone in to every detail to make every aspect of each space enjoyable.

We had a fire in the little stove, baked an apple pie, and enjoyed a late afternoon on the warm and sunny back deck. It felt like home.

The house sits on a quite, very friendly street. We had sweet interactions with neighbors, who shared with us how to cut

through on a quick path to walk to town, (5 min.) and showed us a great private spot up the hill, to watch the sun rise and set, which we did.

Evey local person we met in jaunts around Eastsound, was exceptionally kind and helpful.

A great home, in a magical town in one of the most stunning places in the Northwest!! Hope to come again soon.

Cozy, quiet, and comfortable; short walk to East Sound

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Pamela's place with my family for a 5-night (brief) vacation in early April. The place was roomy and comfortable, and exactly as advertised. My wife and I slept comfortably in the first floor room, while her parents took the loft. This was a convenient location to kick off walking adventures to town, and centralized to get access to either side of Orcas Island.
