****** 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. Winter and off season 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.

Sincerely,

Lisa & Richard - your hosts

Please go to our "Book by Bedroom: Listing on HomeAway #147781 for just one couple or smaller size groups.

* Sorry due to insurance rider wood burning fireplace not available for use.

The Arrival Prep fee covers the time to prepare the cabin for a guests arrival, the fee is not intended to be a fee for cleaning up after departure. Please be respectful of guests that may be checking in behind you and leave the cabin neat and tidy.

Cabin has a new spectacular covered outdoor pavilion and side yard has been expanded for gatherings. Lovely landscape with walkways too. We have photos of the new pavilion and expanded side yard, updated photos of the cabin but VRBO will not let us upload due to size is just a bit too small to meet with their requirements. This is the only site that has this silly restriction.

About Lisa Strauss - Timber Lodge

We 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.

Incredible place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

To celebrate my in-laws 65th anniversary, our group of eight adults stayed a week at Timber Lodge on Orcas Island. What a fantastic choice Timber Lodge was. Visually, the house is stunning with the log construction, the tongue and groove wood interior, the view from the deck, downstairs pool table, player piano, and the home theatre building. The kitchen had just about every small appliance a cook could want. The only negative was the stove needed some upgrades/parts or to be replaced. We would do it all over in a heartbeat. Timber Lodge was simply an incredible place to stay!!

Great Family Celebration Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Timber Lodge for a weekend family celebration of eight people (one of our son's turned 30). We were met warmly by Richard, the host who patiently showed us how everything worked. The house has four big bedrooms plus a loft, very comfortable beds for several couples. It has a big deck with a gorgeous view, and a lovely lower floor full of fun games galore, kareoke, pool table, darts, board games, electronic games, etc. The cabin comes with a movie theater housed in a separate building. We brought our own projector and speakers and used the big screen to show old family videos since they have sensative equipment and don't want guests hooking up their own system. However, the cabin also comes with its own great selection of movies which you can show on their equipment. The kitchen is more than fully stocked and has every gadget ever created including a popcorn maker. And the young people enjoyed the hot tub! The house is close to Moran State Park, beautiful hikes and scenery. We all had the best time, and there is plenty of space if you need to get away from the group for a quiet read. There was a minor problem with a blocked garbage disposal and Richard came over immediately to fix it. Great place and super nice hosts!

Wonderful weekend cabin retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the Timber Lodge this past holiday weekend. It was our third trip staying in Lisa and Kurt's beautiful property and it did not disappoint. Each bedroom offered such character and warmth throughout the whole home, and the deck looking out across the island was just breathtaking. We felt safe and comfortable throughout our stay and the owners made communication a breeze. Perfect for a getaway with friends and family!

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.
