Fantastic retreat near the water w/ expansive deck & stylish interior - dogs OK

Absolutely stunning both inside and out, this Eastsound retreat will be just the place to get away from it all and enjoy the green foliage and serenity of Orcas Island. With vaulted ceilings, a wood-burning stove, gorgeous outdoor spaces, and a spacious layout, everyone will feel right at home in no time. Start foggy mornings with a cup of coffee on the deck and breathe in the fresh air as you plan a full day of fun. You won't have to go far for endless activities, as a private basketball court and easy access to the water below will keep everyone busy. When visitors build up an appetite, the full kitchen is ready for any recipe with beautiful stainless steel appliances, white countertops, and bar seating. Enjoy reminiscing with loved ones at the dining table or eat al fresco at the picnic table on summer evenings. When the stars come out, cozying up by the fire while a movie plays on the flatscreen TV will be an ideal way to end each perfect day away.

What's nearby:
Though this home is secluded on its own part of the island, heading into town or spending a day on the water will be a breeze. Downtown Eastsound is just five-and-a-half miles from your front door offering grocery stores, delicious restaurants, museums, and outdoor gear rentals. If there are a few outdoorsy members of the group, they will be glad to know that Moran State Park is also close by boasting gorgeous trails, expansive greenery, and various lakes to get your fill of nature.

Can't say enough nice things about the folks at Vacas who arranged our stay. We originally rented a smaller house in the same area but the day of check in they let us know there were some issues. For the same cost they offered us a bigger house and $100 for dinner to check in a bit later. When the main road connecting our place to town was closed for a day, they gave me 10% off my next stay. The process was smooth and proactive and didn't affect our enjoyment at all!

Loved the location and close proximity to the water. Great neighborhood. Close to town (Eastsound).

The cabin was clean and tidy, had everything we needed. The location was in one of the most remote spots on Orcas Island, with some outstanding natural amenities right nearby. Worth a little extra drive, and it’s honestly not far from anything. Also, don’t miss dinner at Maria while you’re on Orcas!

Beautiful spot. We went all over the island and all agreed the private beach by the house was the best. We were the only ones on the beach each day that we went. There is a little walk down to the beach, it is steep, but short. Well worth the price. Four stars as the driveway light was burned out and we arrived on a late ferry. The directions were very challenging to follow at night and we drove in circles for quite a while. The house was not readily visible with no lights on or street lights. The cleaning was ok, but not great. I probably would not have noticed if I wasn't playing on the floor with my baby.
Manager response:
Hi, Leigh! Thank you for sharing your recent experience at Tall Cedars. We are happy that you enjoyed the beauty surrounding you during your stay. Our team takes reviews seriously. We see them as valuable insights into our guests' perspectives of the home. After reading your review, the items you mentioned were turned into a task list, and all items have been addressed. We fixed the driveway light, and we understand that driving at night on unfamiliar, rural roads can be challenging, so we will update our instructions to include landmarks that are visible. That way, our guests will know they have made the right turns on their way. We are happy to report that we have been growing our housekeeping team in numbers and skills, and the quality of our cleaning has improved tremendously. We hope that you will stop by and check out the difference your review made.

The house is fine for a rental, a little musty unless you keep the air on. No AC on the upstairs although you don’t need it during the night. Cozy and secluded easy walk to the water beautiful scenery.
Manager response:
Hi Gary, thank you for your review, we hope you enjoyed your stay! We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience the musty smell and no A/C upstairs caused you during your visit, as we strive to provide each and every one of our guests with the very best vacation possible. Additionally, we are disappointed to see that these concerns were not reported to us during your stay, as we hope to be notified of anything less than satisfactory. Please know that we take guest feedback seriously and have forwarded your comments regarding the musty smell and A/C to our local management team to review and address with the appropriate parties. We appreciate your feedback as a means to improve, and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again!

Location is great if you want a remote getaway with private beach, everything else is a (short) drive away.
Great socialising areas in & out of the house. Good shower in the main bathroom. Could do with closer attention to cleaning & maintenance (replacing blown bulbs) as well as having a house instruction/guide book.
If you’re a sleeper affected by light the epic main bedroom windows without curtains might mean you need to bring a sleeping mask in the summer unless you want to get up at 04:30am.
Manager response:
Adam, thank you for the review. We are so glad you enjoyed the location. We’re sorry to hear that the home was in this condition upon your arrival - please know that this is not the regular standard for our properties. We have implemented a Premium Clean program so we can continue to strive to provide our guests with fulfilling experiences; We apologize for any missteps, as it is never our intention to disappoint. We have provided your valuable feedback to our local manager to address with our housekeeping team. We hope to have the opportunity to better impress you in the future!

We really loved our stay here! Everything was recently remodeled and the kitchen was AMAZING!! Perfect for cooking and had everything you would need to cook your own meals - pots, pans, knives, salt, pepper, etc. The couch was super comfy and we loved curling up and watching tv in front of the stove - really kept things warm! The upstairs bedroom had a beautiful view and the bed was really comfortable. We went when there ended up being a snow/ice storm, so want to note to any future folks who stay here to bring chains in case you go during the winter. We had a hard time getting down to the house and were unable to leave the second day because of how icy it was. We ended up going on a lovely walk to town and had a nice walk, but it was 10 miles there and back, which not everyone might be able to do. It was more secluded than we thought and the roads were up/downhill. Really enjoyed our time here and just a lovely house!!

We were very pleased to spend 4 days and 3 nights at this home in the woods on Orcas Island. The place was wonderful. This time of year (Feb) it is a bit dark and damp but that is a product of the northwest. The rooms were very comfortable and we enjoyed having all the conveniences of home.
Jenny R. Dec 2021
Great house in a beautiful, quiet and secluded location (a bit of a drive to town so make sure you’ve got your wine, food and firewood 😊) Lots of games, a great deck with a view and lots of room to hang out and enjoy the house!
Beth Z. Nov 2021
The kitchen is stocked with what you need to cook up a feast. We stayed warm with the heaters and wood stove. Beds were comfortable. Only downside is neighbor left outside light on and it shone right into the upstairs bedroom so we slept with the curtains pulled shut.

Awesome, quiet home on the best part of Orcas Island. I love staying on Raccoon Point road and this home was very spacious, right by the water, and very well kept. We will be back
jackie c. Oct 2021
nice beach to go to., lots of bedrooms for large families..games and movies, open feel to the home..
Marcie H. Oct 2021
We loved the peacefulness of surrounding area. We enjoyed walks down to the beach and the views that came with them. The management company was extremely responsive and helpful when we had a small glitch in our stay. Great for someone who wants to get away from it all and just be.

Loved going down to the water
The layout of the house “worked” for us
Cindy F. Aug 2021
If you want to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of Orcas Island, this is an ideal house! Clean, comfortable, and the location is perfect. Exploring, hiking, short drive into town. The changing tides and gorgeous views added to the tranquility of this place!
Amanda M. Dec 2020
An amazing property, perfect for a quiet (and socially distanced) holiday. Kitchen fully stocked, all amenities as described.
Can’t wait to come back!
Megan L. Oct 2020
Very beautiful location. Arrived to find one of the beds not made and one sky light was leaking when it was raining hard. Overall though it was a fine place to stay in a gorgeous area.
Manager response:
Mehan, thank you so much for taking the time to give your feedback. We are very sorry for the details that were amiss and the leak has been addressed. We are so glad you enjoyed the home and we look forward to hosting you in the future!

Completely refurbished, kitchen completely ready to go, all new applances. And the incredible energy of the huge cedars, paired with the peace and privacy. Perfect place to escape 2020....
