About Leonard Sweet

Owners Leonard Sweet and Karen Elizabeth Ronnie have built The Salish Seaside Escapes to be a unique destination getaway that you'll never forget. Leonard has personally collected the antiques that decorate the cottages. Several buildings were designed and built by renowned architect James Hubble and Heron Cove was featured for its art and beauty. Each cottage has a story and a representative animal. And they are filled with art, books, and interesting collections. They hope you'll enjoy this property and the cottages as much as they do.

Leonard Sweet purchased this cottage in 1984

Why Leonard Sweet chose Eastsound

Orcas Island is like being in a "land before time." You almost expect a brontosaurus to peek around the corner of a nearby fern. The Salish Seaside Escapes' cottages are designed uniquely to fit right into the natural landscape. The fresh air, blue water and skies, the sunny days in this little "banana belt" of the San Juan Islands will lure you back again and again. There's a peace and calm to the island, and the owner hides away to write his more than 60 books right here at The Salish. The island is magical. We know you'll think so too.

What makes this cottage unique

At the Salish Seaside Escapes, you'll have all of the comforts of home, along with upscale, luxury amenities. Fully stocked kitchens, our signature local dark bean coffee (free in every cottage), our hot tubs, and decks allow you to take in the smells of the forest, and interact with the many variations of wildlife you'll find on the island. Watch Eagle's soar and encounter a deer on the path. Walk by the water and see otters sunning on the rocks. Pick blackberries and plums, spend time in the gardens. Or take time to enjoy the many island activities nearby, such as kayaking, Mt. Constitution, biking, trails, and the little shops and restaurants of nearby Eastbound. Orcas Island is a special place. And The Salish Seaside Escapes is the best of the north shore.

A beautiful view and a beautiful island.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our getaway to this cottage. It was cozy with eclectic decor. I loved the stained glass in the bathroom.

If there was any glitch it was the internet which was sketchy. Just decided to escape and forget about the rest of the world for a few days.

Unique, Private, Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We came to celebrate our birthdays and were not disappointed. The Sweets went truly above and beyond to make our stay special. And I mean Above and Beyond! Apparently our private hot tub shuffled off this mortal coil the day we were set to arrive and they had a BRAND NEW hot tub shipped and installed the very next day so that we wouldn't miss out. I mean, who does that these days? It was such a thoughtful gesture. :]

The Eagle's Nest was incredibly charming and well-appointed. It looked a little like the inside of a ship, which was perfect for the ocean-front setting. The fireplace kept things cozy and we were not wanting for anything. Plus that view! It just can't be beat.

Everyone was exceptionally friendly and the grounds were awesome. The architecture and story behind the property are fascinating. We love a great family-owned business and this is certainly that. The Sweets have been rocking this place for 25 years!

Long story short, we are hooked and won't stay anywhere else on Orcas from now on. Thank you for such a fantastic stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks Cassie for the kind words! It was our pleasure to host you. We were so appreciative of your patience while the new hot tub was installed. I promise next time you'll be able to jump right in from the moment you arrive! We are so happy that you two had a good time and look forward to having you here again soon. All the best, Thane S.
