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 new 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 large relaxing deck.

PET FRIENDLY!! Even your family pet will feel welcome! The deck staircase 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 dead end road, this rural area and close proximity to the park often has visits from local deer.

Walk out the front door and in half a mile is the trail that circles Cascade Lake in Moran State Park. Rosario Heights is a wonderful place for hikers to hang their hats.

Nearby several trail heads are marked. Some of the park's trails are available to cyclists.

Enjoy a swimming beach not 2 miles away.

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.

Enjoy dining at the Mansion Restaurant at Rosario. In addition to this world class restaurant, there is an incredible lounge with a separate dining menu. Children are permitted in the lounge but not at the bar itself.

In nearby Eastsound there are wonderful places to enjoy Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous home with very nice hosts. The home was perfect for our weekend stay. We had our dog with us and the home is pet friendly. It’s a beautiful home , very clean and comfortable, and the view is great. Our hosts called to check and make sure everything was OK. We did have one small issue but they sent someone out immediately to take care of it. The house is a great location and close to town, and hiking and biking trails. We had a great long weekend and would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Home on Orcas!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here. The photos do not do this place justice -- the view is incredible, as is the peace and quiet! The home is extremely queen and very comfortable for 4 adults. We brought our dog and were very happy to use the dog run. The home has a lovely ambience and nice kitchen. We really enjoyed our time here and would definitely stay here again. Thank you for making our stay on Orcas so special!
