Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

A charming second floor studio apartment in beautiful Westsound at the base of Turtleback Mountain. Enjoy fabulous water views from your private deck.

Westsound's public beach, county dock, and yacht club are just across the street.

Stairs to the beach are just steps away for launching kayaks and other water sports.

The studio features a very comfortable queen bed, crisp, clean linens and fluffy pillows for a great night sleep.

Newly remodeled bathroom with a full tub and shower. Shampoo, conditioner & body wash provided.

32" flat screen with satellite TV.

There is a love seat and ottoman for relaxation, watching TV, or just reading a book in front of the gas fireplace.

French doors lead to the private deck for taking in the spectacular view!

The kitchenette is stocked with a small fridge, microwave, Keurig coffee maker (including a great selection of coffee & tea), dishes and glassware.

(Please note that there are no pots and pans provided)

Our dining table seats 4.

The Crow's Nest is located only 5 minutes from the Orcas ferry landing and 10 minutes to the village of Eastsound. Kenmore Air flies from Seattle to Westsound several times a day by float plane from Lake Union or land plane to the Eastsound airport from Boeing Field.

If you need a rental car, Orcas Island Shuttle has cars and mini vans.

Moran State Park has 5 beautiful lakes and 35 miles of trails for hiking and biking.

While in the park, don't miss the summit of Mt. Constitution. Climb the tower for endless views at 2409'.

Turtleback Mt. is literally in your backyard for another incredible hike.

There are many great dining options on Orcas Island. We would be happy to help with recommendations and reservations.

You can find rentals for sea kayaks, mountain bikes, and even mopeds for further adventures.

Don't miss an opportunity to go on one of our Whale Watching Tours. Truly breathtaking!

Prefect getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay at the Crows Nest and I'm hoping I'll get to make another trip out. Its the perfect amount of space and amenities for two coupled with a quiet location and picturesque view.

Classy, spectacular view, well-appointed, nicely located.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for the non-sailing wife of a confirmed racing man participating in the Round the County 2-day regatta. Lovely, toasty warm, gorgeous view...truly a Crow's Nest altitude plus next door to all the yacht club action. We are longtime island visitors and this facility is a top pick for future reservations!

Charming apartment with lovely harbor view

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was bright, clean, quiet and very comfortable. We stayed four four nights and thoroughly enjoyed exploring Orcas Island. There were only two ways in which our accommodations could have be improved, if a toaster had been provided and if there had been a premium channel available on TV. Otherwise, we would have give the Crow’s Nest on Orcas Island five stars.

Owner's Response: Sorry we do not have the movie channels, but we do have a toaster (I checked to make sure it is still there). Hope you had a good rest of your trip!

Absolutely charming!

  • 5 of 5

This is a quaint cottage room with a spectacular view!! The proprietors were friendly, and welcoming. We will definitely stay there again and would highly recommend booking as a quick get away from the city or as "overflow" accommodations for your Holiday Guests!

Beautiful view of Deer Harbor.

  • 4 of 5

Clean, well supplied and in an accessible location about 8 minutes from the ferry. Four stars because I could never actually get in touch with the contact listed.
