We stayed 9 days in the Cypress Cottage, tucked away on Buck Bay. Its a sweet little place for 2 adults, we spent a lot of time on the covered porch gazing out on the water and mountains.This was a lovely place to rest and relax, which was what we wanted. Its far enough away from Eastsound to be very... More

This was quite the surprise that we were lucky enough to be upgraded to the MT Baker suite. We made a last minute reservation and all worked out wonderful. The house was set in the woods with a view of Mt Baker off the patio, the private beach straight down was just so wonderful to see. I haven't been back... More

What a beautiful property this is. There are several different options to choose from - from a Barn Loft (which we stayed in), smaller romantic cottages with great views, to larger whole houses that could be used for family reunions. The quiet here is unreal. I don't think I've ever been somewhere that is so incredibly quiet. It was wonderful.... More

We traveled to Orcas Island with our daughter - the 3 of us. We considered staying at one of the Bayside Cottages however, we were doing a B&B the next night and wanted something less expensive. The Chinook Studios were the ticket. The building has 4 units and come equipped with a small kitchen complete with the items you need... More

Have stayed in Bayside, Plum Tree Cottage (many times) and now the newest addition Madrona...love them all! Madrona is right on Buoy Bay so we enjoyed phenomenal views and the homes have all you need. Great kitchen for cooking and could easily accommodate a small army. Love this place, Orcas Island and Olga is the perfect serenity. The Nelsons maintain... More

If you want to get a little off the well-traveled path while visiting Orcas Island I would recommend the Bayshore Cottages, about twenty minutes from Eastsound. Each of the cottages is situated on the large property to give you spectacular views and a lot of privacy. It is a perfect destination for honeymoons or anniversaries for couples to be alone....

The Mount Baker Suite at Bayside Cottages provides a peaceful, practical respite from the hub-bub of busy life. I visited from the East Coast, first to family on the coast of Oregon, then north up the coast to Anacortes, WA, and over on the ferry to Orcas. This unit at Bayside Cottages included a large bedroom space with a comfortable... More

I stayed in one of the three bedroom cottages with several friends for a week. The cottage itself was incredible, with very nice and comfortable furniture. The kitchen was also excellent and we made several meals. It was always very quiet and in the evening was pitch-black which made for great stargazing. It was common to see deers and other... More

We spent two nights this month in Orca. We booked the room through Bayside Cottages. The owners were very helpful and location was good. It is a short walk to town. i.e. restaurants, grocery store, and shops. The suite was well furnished. Wifi worked great. It was quiet and every night deer came to feed in front. It has a... More

We decided to visit Orcas Island for the first time and were having trouble deciding on where to stay. There were many options and each had their own pro/con. My intuition is typically right so we picked the Cypress Cottage of the Bayside Cottages. We are very happy we did! The cottage has an excellent view which lures one to... More
