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

We enjoyed our Christmas week at Jim and Betsy Nelson's Peapod Mainhouse and Bunkhouse tremendously. Our family reunion included our two grown daughters and their significant others. The large and well appointed kitchen was perfect for the complex cooking of family meals that was undertaken. The houses were very accommodating with separate bedrooms and baths. The main house is exquisitely... More

We stayed at the main Pea Pod house and it was gorgeous! The interior was fresh, comfortable and modern. The kitchen was huge, the living room comfortable with a wood stove. Both bedrooms upstairs had their own large bathroom and private deck. We could see dolphins surfacing on the ocean from our front window and the deer were around every... More

On the quiet, isolated but beautiful side of Orcas Island are the Bayside Cottages. The Lummi cottage which had an occupancy the same day we checked in was turned over to us very clean. While they mention they have a beach, the reality is it is not the greatest stretch of coast and required a steep, dangerous trek - depending... More

Perfect trip. When we arrived it was perfect. Our cottage had three bedrooms with three full baths, a reading room, television room, fully equipped kitchen and dining area. Beautiful yard and deck with a view and a private beach. They have cottages to fit any size party. We highly recommend bayside cottages for a relaxing perfect get away!

We had the opportunity to stay 2 nights in the Lummi cottage in mid-July. The cottage was perfectly appointed, comfortable and cozy. We had a glance of Mt Baker from the porch. The morning brought out a parade of very sweet docile deer. Yes the cottage is 20 minutes from Eastsound but the drive is beautiful. Thanks for providing a... More

This was by far one of my favorite trips. We stayed an extra day because we loved it so much. Cozy cottage. Great location next to the water with amazing views. We saw sea otters swimming in the water. Definitely want to come back!

We rented several properties at Bayside Cottages for an intimate family wedding. It was absolutely perfect for us. The cottages were well appointed, and Jim & Betsy were so helpful and gracious. They went to great efforts to make sure we were comfortable and had what we needed. I absolutely adored the new Peapod Cottage. Views were beyond compare and... More

Gorgeous views if you are up for the cardio workout getting down to the water and back up to the cottage. Foliage needs to be cut to improve the view from Lummi Cottage and steps to water. A common deck over looking the gorgeous view of the water, islands and Mt. Baker located on the grounds of the Beach House... More

I just emailed in a "reservation request" to Bayside Cottages (with credit card #) but had to cancel within 48 hrs, and lost $100. Be aware that your credit card will be charged a substantial deposit as soon as you hit "send" on the reservation request form. If you cancel, you will likely lose $100 and possibly the entire deposit... More
