We absolutely cannot wait to go back. The cottage is lovely with an spacious open kitchen/living room, big bathroom, and fantastic views, but the real kicker was the private cove with fire pit and the viewpoint at the end of the spit. We spent every day out there and saw porpoises, seals, and sea otters. There was also bioluminescence in the cove (was a perfect no-moon night!). Our stay was above and beyond our expectations and is truly the perfect Orcas Island getaway! Be sure the check out Buck Bay Shellfish which is super close by, as is Orcas Island Kayaks where we rented for the day to kayak around Obstruction Island. Such a dreamy stay. :)

This is the most beautiful location! The house was clean and comfy for two couples plus a 5 year old. I will definitely stay here again. The only word of warning is the stinging nettle growing by the porch. I won't make that mistake again!
Manager response:
We appreciate you choosing to stay with us, Kristine. It's wonderful to hear you were comfortable in the home. The nettles are going to be knocked back right away after reading your experience. Thank you!

Lovely home with idyllic private peninsula and beach for exploring. Kayak right off the beach. Home is very clean and comfortable. Enjoy!

This home has a well furnished kitchen which we greatly appreciated for cooking, morning coffee, and clean up with a dishwasher. A wood burning heater provided ambiance and much needed warmth with near single digit temperatures, snow and high winds during brown outs. The views were breathtaking and our surroundings were incredibly quiet and peace, exactly what we had hoped for this holiday. My only critique is that the home was not very clean. Cupboards were dirty/dusty, every dish/bowl was dirty, furniture was dusty, the couch was stained and felt unsanitary, floors did not appear to be swept as there were hairs, dirt, and debris all around. Normally, this could be overlooked but I am more cautious these days. Please clean more thoroughly between bookings.
Manager response:

The views and peacefulness are magnificent. The hike along the beach is a huge bonus.
Georgia H. Oct 2021
We love our time at this cozy cabin. Comfortable bed, stocked kitchen with pots/pans, etc, short walk down to the water and a little bluff you can walk out on to, very quiet and serene. About a 10 min drive to Moran park and cascade lake and 20 min to eastosound - beautiful drive so we loved doing it every day. Great big porch and overall a lovely, peaceful stay. Thank you!
Penny B. Oct 2021
Lukas was so wonderfully responsive. The views and walks were special at this time of year. Appreciate the fireplace and warmth of the place. We will return.

This cottage is quiet and has a gorgeous view of the ocean. Cows grazed on the field next to the cottage. It was close to state parks, hiking, and kayaking.
Susan H. Jul 2021
This house is amazing. Everything you need for a relaxing vacation. The house and beds are really comfortable. The views and the water access can't be beat. We didn't want to leave.

Great get away for my husband and I. Loved having the ocean view with the pastural setting, and closeness to Moran State Park. The cabin was cozy and clean and the kitchen nicely stocked.

This house was perfect for a little getaway. Right on the water with a beautiful view, tucked away on the edge of the island. House was very clean and well appointed and exactly as described. Would definitely stay again!

Really enjoyed the location, views of the ocean and short walk down to the shore.
Hannah M. Sep 2020
We had a wonderful week here. The view is just gorgeous and house simple but well equipped. Our two year old loved exploring the beach and seeing all the deer on the pasture. Very peaceful.
Jonathan T. Sep 2020
This place was perfect. Away from any crowds and a huge property with a private beach and bluff with amazing Mountain view. Lots of deer on the lawn and very comfortable bed.
Tom T. Aug 2020
The home has a beautiful view and the kids loved the beach area. Would definitely stay again.

This was such a beautiful and peaceful place to stay for our family! What gorgeous views, big grassy area and deck, easy stroll to the beach and lovely peninsula, and lovely home. A perfect getaway!

nice cottage, amazing view, fantastic stay
Lisa S. Mar 2020
This quiet home has a beautiful water view and easy access to two beaches and a small bluff overlooking the water. The only reason that I gave it 4 stars is the front door was challenging to get in and out of. It sticks really badly and makes locking and unlocking the door challenging. Otherwise the home was well stocked and comfortable.
Manager response:
Thank you for providing feedback, Lisa. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention, and we will work with our maintenance team to make repairs. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

We had a gorgeous view of Mt. Baker out on the ‘peninsula’ where we spent most of the afternoon. We felt lucky to call this place our home for a few days.
James S. Dec 2019
Well-equipped, comfortable house with a great view. Vacasa was very helpful. Nice location.
James L. Sep 2019
This cottage exceeded our expectations by far. It was very clean, well appointed and had magnificent views of the water.
Herm & Joena B. Aug 2019
Immaculately clean, incredibly peaceful cabin with a spectacular View of a private Cove. Fast response from vacasa if there was an issue that we had questions about.
Maja S. Aug 2019
The cabin was clean and well-equipped. We enjoyed our stay . . . but don't tell too many others about it, we want to be able to stay there again without a lot of competition!
Hilary G. Jun 2019
This was a beautiful setting and incredibly peaceful. Views are gorgeous and looking to the West. There is little to no one around, making it very quiet and private. The large lawn and short walk to the beach/water was perfect given we had small children. There was no concern about them from a safety perspective. House was cozy, and easily took care of our group, which was three adults and two children. LOTS of wildlife to watch, too. We would come back!
Bruce D. May 2019
In great shape, perfect to enjoy the setting.
