Recent Orcas Island vacation rental reviews

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.

The home was just what we needed; enough space for 5 friends to make meals together, play games and enjoy each others company.
Randee Y. | Nov 2021
This is a lovely cabin that is warm, relaxing, and well stocked. It was a wonderful escape and base for exploring the island.

How to Get to Orcas Island

Like its neighbor Lopez Island, Orcas Island is accessible only by boat or plane. If you're not flying in, the Washington Sate Ferry system travels between Anacortes and all four islands that make up the San Juans, with the ferry trip itself producing quite a few lovely photo opportunities before you even reach your destination.

Things to Do on Orcas Island

Located to the north, right in center of the island, the picturesque downtown area of Eastsound is a hubbub of activity, with many opportunities for exploring the small shops, bookstores, cafes, and museums that make this island so special. History buffs will delight in the historic homes and buildings that make up the quiet neighborhoods of Eastsound, some of the structures dating back to the late 1800s.

The island is also a haven for artisans. Sculptors, painters, potters, photographers and more all show their creations in galleries throughout the island, with a concentration in Eastsound. Be sure to stop by Orcas Island Pottery, the oldest pottery studio in the Pacific Northwest. After you work up an appetite browsing all the handmade vases, bowls, and other pieces, dining out around town also offers an eclectic mix of options - from Smoked Salmon Benedict at the New Leaf Cafe to Thai Hot and Sour Soup and Potstickers at The Kitchen.

Outdoor Activities on Orcas Island

From your Orcas Island beach rental there are numerous outdoor activities to consider. Will it be an afternoon of golfing at the Orcas Island Golf Course? Maybe a morning spent biking the rolling island hills or a lazy Saturday spent on the water, taking part in one of the many whale watching expeditions based right on the island.

Expansive Moran State Park on the east side of the island has almost 40 miles of trails to explore over 5,000 acres of forest. Right on Cascade Lake, it is also a popular destination for swimming, boating, fishing, and picnicking - you'll never run out of things to do here. For an amazing panoramic view, hike the up to the 2,000-foot summit of Mount Constitution and gaze out over both the US and Canada - you will definitely be rewarded for making this challenging, altitude-gaining hike with an amazing, one-of-a-kind vista.

A peaceful stay at a charming Orcas Island vacation rental will allow you to explore all the amazing dining, outdoor activities, and sightseeing options that this beautiful and unique spot has to offer!
