Eastsound Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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

Go back in time on our quintessential island farm: sweet accommodations, garden at your doorstep, pond with kayaks and canoe, and complete tranquility and privacy. This charming cottage has all amenities in a pastoral setting; the perfect secluded hub for your island adventures, equally well-suited for a family vacation or romantic get-away. Tucked away in a valley below our main house, it is adjacent to our garden with produce for your table. Feel free to stroll to the bluff for views of West Sound, or take the canoe and kayaks for a spin. Fall asleep to the lullaby frog chorus. With the pond and plethora of beautiful vegetation, our 25 acre farm has become a bird sanctuary, with hundreds of species throughout the seasons. This one bedroom plus loft apartment is well-appointed with quality furnishings including antiques. Queen bed in the bedroom and two twins in the loft above (accessible by ladder). Full kitchen, propane barbeque, flatscreen and blue-ray player for entertainment, wireless internet connection, and warmth from the wood stove. AND our 25 acre farm adjoins Turtleback Mountain Preserve! This island treasure has amazing hikes which vary from old forested areas to phenomenal vistas of neighboring islands and beyond. We are located just five miles from the ferry, five miles from the main village of Eastsound, and a mere 1 1/2 miles from the waters at West Sound, including a marina and private dock for moorage.

About Susan Gudgell

We are long time Orcas Islanders -- Wally grew up on Orcas and Susan was drawn here because of summers with her grandparents on nearby Samish Island. The natural beauty was our initial attraction in building a life here, but the wonderful community of eclectic neighbors have kept us here. It has been a great place to raise our family.

Susan Gudgell purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Susan Gudgell chose Orcas Island

We both have long family histories in the islands. We heard about this property 20+ years ago, tucked away on Turtleback Mountain, and came to take a look. Standing on the bluff, looking at West Sound to the south, and the moonrise over Mt. Woolard to the east, we said, 'this is where we want to spend the rest of our lives.' Pure magic.

What makes this cottage unique

Experience serenity here on the farm, taking walks to view lovely vistas, gathering your salad from the garden, breakfast from the chicken coop, and paddling around the pond. For your adventures, this is centrally located on Orcas Island, close to the ferry, close to Eastsound, and just minutes from Turtleback Mountain Preserve. Less than 15 miles from historic Rosario Resort and Moran State Park.

Beautiful oasis on Orcas!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful property on Orcas. It was the perfect location to get away from the city for a few days. We hope to return again soon for another visit.

Great Orcas Island Experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cottage in late October. The leaves were changing, the nights were cool, some days were drizzly, and the fireplace kept us cozy and warm. The cottage is well-maintained, the bed is comfortable, and the kitchen had what we needed to cook a couple of breakfasts and dinners. The owners happened to be out of town during our stay, but the cottage was secluded from their home and it didn't feel too close to the main house. The location is really perfect - 5 minutes to North entrance of Turtleback preserve, 10 minutes to town, 15 minutes to ferry, 20 minutes to Rosario resort. We highly recommend the Inn at Ship's Bay for dinner and Rosario Resort for oyster happy hour. The owners were very responsive and gave us contact numbers in case we needed anything. I recommend the cottage any time of the year, and especially for a couple's get-away. We hope to be back soon!

The Cottage-in-the-Barn was amazing.

We so enjoyed the architecture, interior design, and garden! Susan and Wally have thought of everything. So much "heart" in this cottage. Our sincere gratitude!
