Recent Orcas Island vacation rental reviews

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 is a spacious, well appointed home in a quiet neighborhood in Eastsound. The bed was very comfortable and the trees and lawn out back provided privacy and a lovely view on stormy days. The one drawback is the oven! Even with clear instructions printed out, and 50 years experience cooking on gas, we could NOT get it to work. The short walk to town was a plus in the fall; we will see how it is next summer!

WOW! What a perfect home and setting for our stay on Orcas Island! The location is stunning...at the end of a long dirt road, and very, very peaceful. Views of the Sound, especially at sunrise and at times with a bit of mist across the water covering Mt Constitution were astounding. The home itself is well laid out and charming. There are many kitchen utensils in the spacious kitchen and lovely views from each room of the house. We used the king size bed and found it to be very comfortable. There's even a small fenced area for dogs on the side of the house. We thoroughly enjoyed this and hope to return at some point in the future. It couldn't have been better.

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!
