West Sound Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

A fantastic beach is yours at this charming, vintage, waterfront cottage on Orcas Island. Located in Westsound, between the ferry landing and main village of Eastsound, this cabin is convenient for all your vacation activities.

Large windows across the front bring in sun and beautiful ocean views. Imagine sitting on the patio and watching your cares drift away like the sailboats on the water. And with the large side yard, you'll often see deer, birds, raccoons and more!

A simple floor plan with one bedroom with a new queen mattress and box springs, and the second bedroom across the hall with one extra-long twin mattress and box springs and one regular twin for your comfort. Bathroom has a tub/shower. Separate laundry room.

On the front of the house facing the grand ocean views is a comfortable livingroom with fireplace, kitchen and dining table that seats six.

About Karen Key Speck

I have looked forward to heading to Orcas every summer for 55+ years! We hope your visits will become an annual Trek to Orcas and our home.

Karen Key Speck purchased this cottage in 1956

Why Karen Key Speck chose

My parents purchased this property in the 1950's. Dad was a huge fisherman and was always looking for a hot fishing spot. He visited Orcas Island and said he never wanted to leave! He bought the property without Mom seeing it. Many years later, the street was named after her (so he made good.)

Sweet spot on Orcas

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do justice! Cabin is nice, clean and comfortable with a wall of windows affording a wonderful view of West Sound. Location is ideal--quiet and private, but some interesting things going on in the water, such as a boat coming or going from a small nearby slip, occasional seaplanes landing and headed toward the marina around the bend, the ferry traveling in the distance. My group had kayaks delivered and we set out from "our" beach into West Sound--wonderful place to explore! Turtleback Mountain is nearby and a great hike with terrific views. West Sound Café is tasty and within walking distance.

Owner's Response: What a lovely review! Thanks for sharing your positive experiences. I personally love the charm of this older cottage as it reminds me of my grandma, so it's wonderful to know others enjoyed it as well. Sounds like you had plenty of exciting activities to partake of! Come see us again. Property Manager Karen
