Hello! After visiting dancing deer for 20 years, we purchased Dancing Deer from our parents and have begun the second generation of ownership of our favorite place to relax. Jerome and Alice have lived in Seattle for 15 years, Matthew and Jill live in Southern California. We all enjoy hiking, biking, fishing, and spending time with our children (who LOVE Orcas island). We are avid outdoor people and enjoy the abundant wildlife and scenic beauty of the region. We are also 'people persons' and enjoy very much providing a quality vacation experience with every possible comfort, a strong focus on hospitality and customer service, in a beautiful home.
Jill Stewart purchased this house in 1996
Our Mother, Susan is from the U.K. originally and after vacationing in the Northwest, saw the similarity to certain places in the British Isles and we both new this was where we would both retire. Orcas Island is very unique in that it not only abounds with scenic beauty and amazing wildlife, but there are many cultural opportunities such as concerts and theater, not to mention wonderful shops, galleries and restaurants. It is our intention to keep dancing deer for our children and our children’s children.
'Dancing Deer' is a beautifully maintained home with all sorts of 'creature comforts'. Our priorities are comfort and quality. The house is very private, spacious and filled with natural southerly light. We have 2 decks both with comfortable lounging and dining furniture, so guests can relax and enjoy the amazing southerly view. We are walking distance from the beach at Rosario, Cascade Lake and Moran State Park and only a 10 minute drive from the amenities of Eastsound. We have deer that live on our property and provide our 4 children with hours of enjoyment, and many wildlife visitors including eagles and other birds. The 'suite' provides a second living area for games and videos and a great hang-out place for kids!
"Thank-you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. Our first impression was this amazing view. We had so much fun feeding the deer that live here. We had a great time playing games and reading out on the gorgeous deck."
We simply loved this house! We spent several days at Christmas time and enjoyed it immensely. The living room was wonderful, the kitchen was very clean and well-stocked, and the bedrooms and beds were very comfortable. The house was very well stocked and furnished-- with everything we needed. The location provides a fantastic view of the sound and is near Moran Park, Cascade Lake and Rosario resort. We were visiting from out of state and were looking for a comfortable place to spend Christmas for a mini family reunion. This property exceeded our expectations. We will return if ever in the San Juan area again! Thank you, Jill, for being a great host!
We stayed at Dancing Deer for an extended weekend while attending our friends wedding in Eastsound. This wonderful home was the perfect alternative to a hotel and helped make our stay on Orcas a memorable one. I would highly recommend staying at Dancing Deer and thank the Stewart family for their warm hospitality!
My husband and I stayed at Dancing Deer for our 2nd wedding anniversary & it couldn't have been more perfect. We were looking for a weekend get-away to disconnect from world and enjoy just being together and that is exactly what we got. You can't help but be in the moment when you are looking at the view of the water & islands from the house. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone.
We LOVED our stay at dancing deer! The views are spectacular, kitchen and BBQ on decks perfect for cooking great local fresh foods, the home is beautifully crafted and spacious. We loved looking out across the water at other islands and were greeted by lovely quiet deer right on the property several times. You are located just up the road from Rosario resort and all its amenities as well as a short drive into town and next to the park, hiking Cascade Falls is amazing! The owners are kind, easy to work with, and a phone call away if anything is needed. We recommend Dancing Deer to any and all, hope to visit again! Sara and Devin
Great experience from beginning to end. It all started with the first inquiry. Jill was very responsive. Communication with her couldn't have been any better!
We arrived on the property to be greeted by the resident family of deer. We had a hard time getting the kids into the house, they wanted to stay outside with the deer. Once inside the house we were very pleased with everything. The house was just as advertised. Everything is in great condition and the property is emaculate. The kids had enough space to spread out on the first floor. My wife and I had plenty of room upstairs in the loft. We didn't need the bedroom on the main floor. The property gives you the best of both worlds. Tucked into a hillside with giant pine trees and views to the Puget Sound that go forever. Our family loves Orcas Island and Dancing Deer is our favorite place to stay. We hope to be back again. Thanks Jill for sharing your home with us. It was a memorable experience for the whole family and we truly appreciate the personal attention you gave us.
Spacious family home with beautiful views. Jill and her family were responsive and wonderful to work with. House is close to Rosario, Olga and Moran State Park. The home is fully stocked, better than my own kitchen! Plenty of games and puzzles to pass the rainy days and easy access to trails. Highly recommend the 4pm performance by Christopher Peacock at Rosario Resort.
