About Jill Stewart

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

Why Jill Stewart chose Orcas Island

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.

What makes this house unique

'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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"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."

Wonderful vacation in an incredible location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very rejuvenating vacation. The home was extremely clean and well maintained. I love to cook and there was every necessary appliance, utensil, and sharp knives! Having 3 levels gives everyone lots of space and there are views from every floor. Cascade Lake at Moran Park is a 5 minute walk away and gorgeous anytime of day - even in the rain. The owner is beyond responsive. (I left a valuable item in the home and she responded within minutes and coordinated its recovery.) Thank you for sharing your wonderful home and we look forward to returning to Orcas Island again.

Wonderful, Relaxing Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two dogs and I have spent the last two years at this beautiful home for our anniversary. It is incredibly relaxing with a fabulous view. It is close to town for delicious food and close to Moran state park for outdoor adventures. I highly recommend this property, you will not be disappointed.

We just love it.

  • 5 of 5

This home is jut fabulous with three bedrooms and three baths. Everything you need for cooking is available, all tools, down to the seasonings, herbs and spices. All instruction notices were very helpful. It's clean and inviting. We would have preferred to have gotten there during daylight hours, but that could not be helped. We will be back at a later date, because we just love it and the island. The distances to the Moran State Park and Rosario Resort are walkable from the house. Just a great VRBO. Dieter and Ingrid Schulz

Absolutely incredible!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Dancing Deer for three nights in March 2017 for our wedding anniversary and had an amazing time! The pictures really don't do this home justice. The view is really amazing and the home itself is warm and cozy. It was cold while we were there (we even got some snow!) and the pellet stove in the living room was really great for ambiance. We loved cooking meals in the well-stocked kitchen and enjoying the view. I can't recommend this home more!

Great location, beautiful house with a fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

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!
