Ski-in/ski-out from this dog-friendly home w/ a deck, firepit, & sound views
Orcas Island is yours to experience from this Eastsound home, offering amazing views of the sound, room for your dogs to enjoy the fresh air, and an excellent location for unwinding and taking in the local sights. At night, gather together around the firepit and watch the stars come out overhead.
You'll be on the west side of the sound, a quick drive from out-of-the-way sights like Orcas Island Golf Course and farm stand less than four miles outside of Eastsound proper. You're also a short drive from hiking at the Turtleback Mountain Preserve. The trails of Mount Constitution in Moran State Park are a bit farther (14 miles to the east), but the views from the famous observation platform at the top are more than worth the drive.
Things to know:
Two dogs welcome with a small nightly fee, dogs must be leased on outside premises. Maximum weight of 60 lbs each.
Washer/dryer : Private
Propane/gas home : Propane

We had a great time!! The house was perfect for our family. Great location, it was clean and private. We had a great time using the fire pit and ping pong table. The house had everything we needed.
Super close into town, beautiful view, and all the amenities we needed. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the staff did a fantastic job of prepping this for our stay. Will be coming here several more times. The home itself is enough reason to travel back to the island.
We had such a great time at this comfy , cozy oasis nestled in the pines.
Super comfortable beds and the up stairs bathroom is like a day spa. The views were incredible as well.
Thank you !

We had a lovely time - nice space for 3 couples, kitchen was easy to use and get around, really enjoyed our night time fires at the fire pit. We had fun playing Ping-Pong and other games in the yard. A very quiet neighborhood, just what we were looking for. Would definitely recommend this property.
We loved the nice, quiet location with a filtered view of the water through the trees. The house was very clean, and had everything we needed (except food, of course), and then some. We appreciated the nice-to-haves provided like the white noise machines in the bedrooms, board games, and extra ping pong balls. The mattress on the king-sized bed was on the firm side, which I loved. The only slight ding was the extremely slow to non-existent WiFi signal. My impression is that this issue was brought up to the property manager by some previous renters. This wouldn't have been that big of a deal, except that we brought a WiFi-based baby monitor to use. After doing some troubleshooting, we noticed that the modem needed a firmware update, which we went ahead and downloaded/installed. But, after that, we were prompted to reactivate the modem; the CenturyLink representative on the phone wouldn't let us do that, since we weren't the primary account holders. We emailed the property manager about this, and they said they'd look into it sometime after we left. The WiFi issue notwithstanding, we'd be excited to stay at this property again!
We are sorry to see the lack of WiFi was problematic for our guest. We have updated our listing to emphasize there is no WiFi or cell service at this location. Thank you!
House itself is a peaceful spot, perched with beautiful views of the sound from all the windows. Spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, so very comfortable for our party. However, wish the kitchen was more outfitted (no spices, foil/saran wrap, etc) and the house included either a pack n play and/or high chair to make it more kid-friendly (it did include plastic dishes and some blocks). Also wish that the pre-trip communication included more about Vacasa's contact info as we initially had trouble getting into the house, yet could not reach anybody at the agency.
We were very pleased with our stay at the Shore Thing Retreat in Eastsound. The views were lovely and the home met all of our needs. We loved its location on Orcas Island -- very close to the shops and restaurants of Eastsound. The home was very clean and the beds were super comfy! We loved sitting on the deck every evening and recapping the day's adventures on Orcas Island. We would rent again. Thank you to the home owners for sharing your home with us.
The house is very comfortable, spacious, and clean. We were there for a very smoky weekend due to wildfires, but enjoyed catching up on Netflix and playing games when the smoke was bad, and getting outdoor time in at nearby Moran state park when it was better. Very close to eastsound. Overall a great experience and we’ll be back!
The house was nice, clean and well-stocked. Even with Washer/Dryer. Wi-fi was awful to non-existent. Not happy with Vacasa customer service. On hold 10 minutes. No one answered.
We are very sorry we were difficult to reach and that WiFi was not working well. It can be hit and miss in the area, and when we checked, it was working. Thank you!
