The Beautiful San Juan Islands

#2 of Travel Destinations Worldwide 2014

The New York Times

#3 of Best of North American Islands

Travel & Leisure 2015

Recently voted one of the world’s most exciting ferry rides your trip to the San Juan Islands promises beautiful views of mountains, forests and a close connection to the ocean. Glimpses of Orca Whales, Harbor Seals, Porpoises, and Sea Lions are not uncommon. Moderate temperatures make the islands ideal for all kinds of activities such as boating, fishing, kayaking and hiking. There’s no place more beautiful for recreation, relaxation and rejuvenation.

Enjoy spectacular sunsets from the deck of our beautiful home located in the VERY POPULAR Rosario area. Just 1.5 miles finds you at the entrance to Moran State Park with 5 lakes, hiking trails and Mt. Constitution. 2 miles in the other direction and you are at the beach front at Rosario Resort.

The open floor plan, skylights, and southern exposure make this very comfortable and modern home light and airy.

The large master suite boasts a jetted tub and private access to the west facing deck. Step out on the deck and enjoy your morning coffee. With a separate full bath and queen bed in the guest room, this home is perfect for two couples. But a sleeping sofa in the living room will provide for a larger group.

On your visit to our home on BEAUTIFUL ORCAS ISLAND you can enjoy Directv on our two new High Definition TV's. We also have a well stocked game closet and selection of DVDs as well as an I-Pod Dock for your listening pleasure. HIGH SPEED INTERNET with a WiFi router makes it possible for our guests to access the internet from the comfort of our home or even from the relaxing deck.

PET FRIENDLY!! Even your family pet will feel welcome! The deck leads to a fenced in area for your dog to have some off leash freedom. Rosario Heights is open to visits for one or two dogs.

With our home located on a quiet private road, this rural area and close proximity to the park often has visits from local deer.

Not a half mile is the trail that circles Cascade Lake. Rosario Heights is a wonderful place for a hiker to hang his hat. Walk out the door for the five mile circuit around Cascade Lake in Moran State Park. Enjoy a swimming beach not 2 miles away.

Nearby several trail heads are marked. These silvan paths lead to the trail that circles Cascade Lake in Moran State Park. Some of the parks trails are available to cyclists.

You can also hike or drive down the hill to Rosario Resort to find a waterfront beach near Cascade Marina, again not 2 miles from Rosario Heights.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time at this property. It's clean, and it was obvious that all details were thought about for the visitors. Great view from the deck and very quiet and private. Nice place for about four people. Six fit, but hide a bed isn't the best, and if people get up early, those on the hide a bed aren't able to sleep in 😉򒐮 Recommend for four, but overall a very nice place!

Quiet, Peaceful View of East Sound

  • 5 of 5

They say in real estate the number one consideration is location and this house has it. Perched above east sound the house has a great view which you feel is all your own. Yet it is close to town, close to Moran State Park and close to Rosario Resort. Really appreciated the attentiveness of Rick, the owner. He ensured our stay was perfect and we felt right at home. Would definitely recommend to friends looking for a house on Orcas. My only wish would be for a king size bed in the master suite.

I couldn't have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most relaxing vacation I have had in a long time, and much of that was due to staying in this home. It has such a peaceful feel to it, and offers a gorgeous view. The night sky was stunning, and the owners thoughtfully have binoculars available for guests to use. The location cannot be beat for exploring Moran State Park or witnessing the beauty of nature. We saw plenty of deer and numerous eagles near the house.

The owners were so pleasant and easy to deal with. They were very prompt in answering my questions before I booked and sent detailed directions and helpful tips after booking.

I highly recommend this vacation rental.

Beautiful Location, Very Nice Home!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I really enjoyed our stay. The home is in a very private location, is very well furnished, and has an amazing view of the water. Located very close to Moran State Park and some excellent hiking trails. The owners also did a great job of communicating all pertinent details for the rental process.

Wonderful time at a wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

The house, with its amazing view, was wonderful. It is secluded enough to be private, but close enough to places like Moran State Park, Rosario Resort, and the main town. It was fully furnished so no need to really bring anything other than your food or snacks. Rick has made the booking process very easy with emailed instructions and suggestions for things to do. The house, I felt was truly reflective of the owner's character, very warm and welcoming. Thanks again Rick for allowing us to stay at your beautiful house!
