FOREST HOUSE is very PEACEFUL, nestled in the TREES with views of the WATER. The house is custom built with much tender loving care by Sunray Kelly, an alternative northwest designer/builder. There is always something to improve on, so tons of love is put into it between travelers. I truly hope you enjoy yourself thoroughly!!!!!! It has many unique features like a SUNKEN round soaking TUB, cathedral like windows and doors,6,10 &12 sided rooms with curved WOOD walls throughout. There are 3 DECKS with many different places to sit and contemplate! You enter into a 12 sided LIVING ROOM with lots of windows, doors & views of the water, trees and sky. Walk down the hallway to the TOILET room, TUB room and a galley KITCHEN which was built by FAERIES themselves...well not exactly but almost! The counter tops are live edge spalted Alder and Cherry wood. There is a Copper sink, range, refrigerator and all the kitchen necessities to cook a meal. You walk out the kitchen door onto a huge DECK which has beautiful views, BBQ and the MAIN BEDROOM POD. It is the main BED, QUEEN size. Walk to the next DECK to the two story TOWER which has a COZY COUCH for nesting, reading, contemplating on the second floor. Or if there are 3 people or two singles it is the second bedroom with a DOUBLE bed. I highly recommend ..... receiving a nurturing SOUND HEALING treatment by Kimberly Kirkwood. She has an office near DoeBay resort. Go to Frequencyrealms dot com. I am so happy to be here and love sharing this beauty with others. ORCAS ISLAND is abundant with pottery shops, artisan shops, music in the park, theater, kayaking, hiking, whale watching, boating, fishing, swimming and water all around....Its the best island and the most magical!!!! Enjoy hiking at Moran State Park, which has over 35 miles of trails. Also the south entrance of Turtleback mountain has stunning views. Rent or launch your kayak or canoe from beaches or the lakes, swim in the three amazing lakes. EASTSOUND has many great restaurants, unique shops, outdoor concerts in the summer, farmers market and an excellent performing arts center. Check out the ORCAS ISLAND CHAMBER OF COMMERCE website for weekly happenings. Here is what people have been saying about their time at the house. It says it all: 'Being at a place like this makes you feel alive! I always wanted to live in a “Swiss Family Robinson” home in the trees and this home is the closest I have come to it yet. Thank you for allowing us to share this interesting place! J & E More

We had a great time on Orcas Island. The treehouse is very secluded yet still pretty close to town. Very well equipped, clean, and quiet. The kids loved it!

About the neighbourhood
The house is in a neighborhood on the north shore with a view of the water and Mount Baker. It is a very quiet beautiful setting amongst the trees and yet only 4 miles from the main town of Eastsound, 10 minutes by car. You are the only ones there at the house, so it is very private. The neighborhood is very quiet, please respect the community by driving the speed limit, no loud radios or partying--this would not be that type of place for that. Thank you.
Getting around
I recommend having a car on the island. The Island is so beautiful, I encourage people to definitely go to Moran State Park. There is so much to see and experience or just rest at the house. Google Orcas island Wa Chamber of Commerce, you will find all the details.
