****** House Rules******

Dear Prospective Guest,

There aren’t really too many house rules. Basically, come in and make yourself at home. There’s no such thing as a check-in time that’s too late, so no worries there. Let me know if you’d like an earlier check-in time than 5PM or later check-out time than 10AM. It can usually be arranged, depending on other bookings. Worst case scenario, we can store your luggage make you a cup of tea and you can lounge on the deck or watch a movie in the home theater room while we are preparing the cabin.

Our only request is please do not invite visitors, the cabin and all the amenities we provide are only for our registered guests.

Please do not strip the sheets off the bed we prefer to do this ourselves, just put the beds back the way you found them with bedding left flat on top of the beds. If towels are damp please hang them over the towel rack to air dry. Please wipe down kitchen counter tops, load and start the dishwasher(s) if you are unsure where kitchen inventory belongs please leave on the counter. If grill has been used please brush grill down and wipe off side trays. Confirm Home Theater Room Projector System has been turned off per instructions, turn lights and ceiling fans off, check to make sure all doors are locked and bag all trash from kitchen and bathrooms and just toss your trash in the bin on the side of the driveway on your way out.

After you book and well before your arrival date, you’ll receive an email from us explaining how to get to the cabin, where to park, and all sorts of good information about things to do in and around this wonderful town. When you arrive, there will be tourist brochures and welcome letter with more information, like WiFi access code and restaurant recommendations.

We want you to thoroughly enjoy our cabin and your time on Orcas Island. We’ll do everything we can to make that happen. It’s hoped you’ll book with us over and over again. We truly want you to enjoy the accommodations. We'll do everything I can to make your stay wonderful.

About Lisa Strauss - Timber Lodge

My husband and I live on Orcas island and manage our own vacation homes so this enables us to respond to our guests needs quickly. You will find that we provide over the top amenities that are not typically found in most vacation homes as our goal is to exceed our guests expectations.

Lisa Strauss - Timber Lodge purchased this house in 2003

Why Lisa Strauss - Timber Lodge chose Orcas Island

We had been exploring different States on the West Coast for where to purchase our second vacation rental home when we discovered the San Juan Islands. On the flight over from Seattle we were totally taken back by the beautiful scenery. We viewed property on all three islands but, by the time the ferry landed on Orcas Island we knew instantly that this was the island for us. I had seen the photos of Timber Lodge on the internet so I was excited for the agent to show us the home. We had pretty much decided if it was as good in person we were buying it. The moment my husband and I stepped into the front door we were awestruck and said “where do we sign”. It was so much better than we expected and had the real rustic Lodge feel. Best of all was it was on three acres of privacy and had much better ocean views than we imagined. We wanted something totally unique, rustic with a true feeling of the Northwest and we had found what we were looking for a vacation cabin that we could really call 'truly spectacular'.

The greatest feature of this genuine Log home is every wall in the home is truly made out of logs. Log homes are known for being cooler in the summer months and nice and warm and cozy in the winter. My favorite time to visit Timber Lodge is in the cold winter months when we have a fire going in the great room and can sit down with a nice cup of tea and enjoy the beautiful scenery and the magnificent views of the sound.

What makes this house unique

Timber Lodge accommodations are over the top with a state of the art home theater room, and just about every amenity we could think of for cooking and entertaining. This home has the perfect sleeping accommodations for couples as the home has four king size beds. Tipi bedroom available in summer is great for teens that want to have their own space with a great Tipi seating area with Flatscreen TV and DVD.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the private peacefulness of Timber lodge. The lodge is almost too good to be true, and the location is second to none. I've never stayed anywhere do well equipped and so tastefully appointed. We'll be going back.

Magical sunsets and endless entertainment!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week on Orcas at the timber lodge with our wedding in the middle at the red rabbit farm which is another magical place on orcas. We had a small family wedding and had our family with us the entire week. We rented another great house up the hill from the timber lodge. The timber lodge was perfect. It's so close to Moran, and centrally located making it close to eastbound, doe bay, and not too far from westbound or deer harbor. If you run out of things to do at and around this house there is something wrong with you. There are endless things to do and one of our favorites was to hang out on the giant deck that faces west and watch the most spectacular sunsets I have ever seen for nearly 3 hours at this time of year. Richard and Lisa are fantastic. They are very helpful and kind people. Thanks for everything and we will be back.

An amazing vacation home with unbelievable attention to detail. Cannot recommend enough!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Timber Lodge and it was made even better with all of the new accommodations the owners have made. We very comfortably slept 10 guests and never felt cramped. The lodge was extremely clean and well kept when we arrived, and completely lived up to the advertised specifications. We hope to make the Timber Lodge an annual getaway!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and amazingly equipped with every kitchen gadget you can imagine (who knew you could own a crepe griddle?). Great value for the price, we loved the game room and theater, and of course the island is beautiful. Thanks for a great visit!

Perfect girlfriends getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful way to spend my 40th birthday with my girlfriends !! House was spectacular !! So much thought and time was put into the perfecting of this house. And you the guest are at the center of it. Each detail was designed with you in mind. From the comfort of the living and sleeping space to the amazing kitchen with every appliance imaginable. A wonderful welcome package was awaiting us and throughout our stay we knew if we needed anything, the owner was just a phone call away. The view from the deck was breathtaking and it was fun to wake up to deer in the yard. I fully intend to come back to this house as it was one of the best accommodations I have ever experienced.

Perfect Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Timber Lodge is an excellent location to relax, enjoy time with family and friends, and get away from the hustle and bustle of urban life. This is my second year in a row returning to the Timber Lodge around my birthday since there's no need to go anywhere else.

Everything I could personally want in a vacation is provided by Timber Lodge. The warm feeling of relaxing in the cabin, or looking out into the sound from the deck with a cup of coffee, or getting competitive around the game room, or winding down in the hot tub, or even enjoying a legitimate in-house theater experience with a fantastic movie are all reasons why I will return to the Timber Lodge again and again!
