Walk to Beach & Town Convenience, 5 Bdrm Farmhouse Sleeps 15
average rating of 5.0 based on 28 reviews

Amazing house for a large family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our experience at this house! We rent about 3-5 VRBO houses a year and know quality when we see it! The house was perfect size for us and we used every square inch. The backyard with the apple trees and tire swings were perfect for the 7 kids (under 10). We played many games of kick the can, it was a blast! We cooked each night in the kitchen and had every single piece of hardware necessary! Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your home! We loved Orcas and it was the perfect spot for us! Loved the brewery too!

Perfect Getaway for 14!

  • 5 of 5

This house is BEAUTIFUL!!! We filled the house with 14 people and never felt cramped! It was so relaxing and comfy. We didn't venture out a whole lot over the weekend because we didn't want to leave the house! Everything we needed in the kitchen was there. The bbq worked great! Books and books and books galore! Games too! Deer graced us with their presence every day in the yard. So close to EVERYTHING! Walk to Eastsound. Walk to North Beach. Walk to the brewery. Walk next door to the arts building to see amazing wind chime art in the yard. We are already talking about coming back just to stay at the house! Gerry is awesome and didn't get annoyed with all my questions lol!

Fabulous Farm House

  • 5 of 5

Our time spent on Orcas Island was enhanced by staying in such a great vintage home. For beginners, it is located in one of the best spots--you can walk to a beach, or into the quaint little town which abounds with restaurants and shops. Don't bring any books or movies--there are "hundreds" in the home to choose from. The kitchen has everything you would need to cook a gourmet meal for many. The owners are fabulous and live right there on the island. We had a small group so we didn't even begin to use all the space. This home easily could accommodate a large group. It is a perfect setting for a family reunion, or other large gathering. We were there in September and weather was beautiful. I hope we will be able to return someday with the rest of our family. Highly recommend, especially for large groups.

wonderful home and perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most relaxing VRBO homes we've vacationed at. The house was extremely spacious and felt like we were at home. Several living rooms and dinning rooms with a large kitchen to do all our own cooking. Perfect getaway for our family. Huge backyard for our kids to run around in, climbing trees, playing Frisbee golf, and we could take the short walk to town. Can't wait to go back and highly recommend this home for a small group of people or even a larger group!

Perfect for a big family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We've just spent a delightful week with our four kids and their spouses and kids at the Historic Baker House on Orcas Island. Everything was great -- the kitchen was well equipped so that we could cook meals for 14 people comfortably. The tire swings and blackberry bushes enticed our 3 year olds outside and there was plenty of room to set up croquet and bocce ball and everyone loved the frisbee golf course. We spent a lot of time outside but also were comfortable inside on a rainy day. The beds were comfortable and there was space for clothes in dresses and closets. On the couple of warm days we could have used more fans but the space was never uncomfortable.

Its 10 minutes walking from town which makes it easy to zip in for breakfast burritos or pastries. The restaurant choices are somewhat limited but everything was delicious. The locals made us feel very welcome and we had a wonderful time. If you go, don't miss the Buck Bay Oyster farm for oysters, clams and crab.

Thank you Gerry Baker for sharing your wonderful home!

Happy Hikers!

  • 5 of 5

My womens hiking club came to explore the San Juan Islands. We thoroughly enjoyed day hiking and kayaking the Islands. The Farmhouse was a great respite for a large group. We enjoyed the yard and had a fire one evening. Deer and rabbits offered entertainment. The kitchen is well stocked and we never ran out of hot water even though there were 12 of us. Laundry facilities were also a nice bonus. The location is very central for anyone staying on Orcas and the property manager is responsive and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this house for large groups.
