I have had the good fortune to stay at Orcas Island several times. I have stayed in a few different "standard" hotels and at the North Shore Cottages. If you have not spent a few days in one of these cottages... you ARE missing out! Each cottage has been individually and uniquely designed, built, and maintained. In the spirit of... More

We stayed at these cottages for our 20th year anniversary. We had a wonderful time! When I saw our cottage I felt like I had found a fairy tale home in the woods. I loved all of the small details that surrounded us. The heated floors, the mosaic tiled shower for two, the sauna, the unique building design. We enjoyed... More

Nice place, great soak with a view but not the cleanest cabin though.

I consider Orca's as one of the most beautiful places on earth to visit, and my stay at North Shore Cottages truly unforgettable. Each cottage has it's own unique designer style, the comforts of home and an ambience and decor that provide pleasant surprises all through the stay. Every cottage has a handpicked library that reflects a theme connected to... More

From the moment we arrived at North Shore Cottages we felt at home. The owners made us feel like family and spoilt us with excellent meals. I cannot imagine a more beautiful and peaceful place to stay! Thank you so much!

This was our second time at North Shore, and it's always such a pleasure. Elizabeth is the most generous host you will ever meet, nothing is too much trouble for her. The experience is unique and fantastic. Cottages are super creative and very comfortable. Brilliant views on a beautiful island.

If you, want rest, and more rest, and if you want excellent service then North Shore Cottages is for you. Nothing is to much for Elizabeth to do and they are so helpful. I can recommend North Shore Cottages as your first choice. You will not be disappointed, so if you still wander, stop and phone Elizabeth at North Shore... More

We stayed at North Shore Cottages for 4 nights. Although we've been here before, it was always in winter...which in itself is an amazing experience, but this time was unbelievable. Leaving Anacortes on the Ferry is like leaving the world behind, and stepping onto orcas Island is like stepping into yourself. Our cottage was fantastic (each cottage has its own... More

We arrived with our 2 grandchildren at Salmon Shoal, one of the NorthShore Cottages, late afternoon on June 30. The owner showed us around and the views were spectacular. The cottage is very roomy, however the third bedroom is in the BASEMENT, with a dehumidifier running all the time and the bed in the middle of the room. We decided... More

We planned to have our wedding at the North Shore Cottages, made reservations, and put down a deposit. I will say that these cottages are incredibly beautiful and we were very excited to get married on Orcas Island. Unfortunately, there was a serious medical emergency that forced us to cancel our wedding just abut two weeks out. We communicated this... More

LenSweet, Owner at The Salish Seaside Escapes, responded to this review

We too were very saddened by this problem and the unhappy exchanges it brought about. This party did book all of our cottages for a wedding in mid-July—-the height of the tourist season. Seven days before their scheduled arrival they cancelled all of their reservations due to a medical problem. Although we were completely sympathetic to their situation they contacted... More
