The living room includes large windows and Mission-style wood furniture with comfortable cushions, colorful throw rugs and a beautifully tiled gas fireplace. Pick a cozy spot to settle in, choose a book or game from the many shelves, and relax. There is a stereo with iPod dock, a TV, and a DVD player, so you'll have no shortage of entertainment for those cold, stormy days. There is also WiFi to check work emails, research possible island excursions, or find a new salmon recipe for dinner. The home itself is well-equipped to entertain you both indoors and out! You'll find two adult bikes and two single-person kayaks (with paddles) for exploring all areas of the island. There's also a volleyball kit, badminton kit, tennis gear (two rackets and balls), beach chairs, and an umbrella to make the most of your time outdoors. The kitchen has butcher block counters, colorful mugs for coffee, and even a cookbook collection for culinary inspiration! All the appliances you need to create tasty vacation meals are right at your fingertips. The nearby dining room table seats six and is open to the living area, making it easy to spread out and socialize. Glass French doors off the dining room lead out to a large deck with a west view of the saltwater bay of Eastsound through the forested landscape. On the south side of the house, off the living room, is a sunny brick patio surrounded by rosemary, lavender, and fir trees. On sunny days, you can dine al fresco and breathe in the fresh Puget Sound air! Upstairs there are three bedrooms, all with queen sized beds, soft bedding and decorative touches throughout each room. There is a beautiful water view through the trees. The two bathrooms are also located upstairs and feature white hexagonal tile floor, pedestal sinks, framed botanical drawings, and walk-in showers. Orcas Island is 57 square miles of scenic hills, lakes, sea views, and forests. Like the other three main islands in the San Juan Island archipelago, it is accessible by the Washington Sate Ferry, private boat, or plane. Less than five miles away, you'll want to spend plenty of time walking around picturesque Eastsound, the largest town on the island. Here you will find historic homes and buildings, some dating back to the late 1800s. This charming village has many art galleries, museums, shops, bookstores, cafes and restaurants. Don't miss the other smaller towns of Olga, Deer Harbor and Orcas Village. Dining out on Orcas Island offers a variety of choices, ranging from casual cafes to some of the finest restaurants in the Northwest. Outdoor activities on Orcas Island include golfing at Orcas Island Golf Course, biking the rolling island hills, horseback riding, whale watching, kayaking, beach combing and bird watching. Located just minutes from the cabin, Moran State Park has over 5,000 acres of forest and almost 40 miles of trails to explore. Besides hiking the many nature trails, this is a popular destination for lake swimming, boating, fishing, and picnicking. Up for a challenge? Hike or drive to the 2,400 foot summit of Mount Constitution and gaze out over both the US and Canada! Leave your stresses behind, come rejuvenate, and create lasting memories in this little piece of paradise.
