As follow: Positives: - location is walkable to Eastsound, the main town on Orcas - beautiful house and kitchen, which is well-stocked with all sorts of cooking equipment - sweet garden from which the owners let us harvest kale,...

My son and I stayed here during a visit to Orcas Island. We rented bikes and felt very safe and welcomed. Everyone was very friendly. The owners were very kind and trusting and allowed me to pay for the bike rentals after I had departed. Most relaxing trip ever!

My friends and I spent a night at the Golden Tree Hostel this weekend and it was simply lovely. We had the loft room, which was huge...more than enough space for 3 ladies. We really enjoyed the hot tub and sauna and the close proximity to Eastsound. Two things to note. If you stay in the loft, there aren't any... More

A friend of mine and I stayed in the Women's Dorm-basically twin beds with a large shared bath. We looked around and saw the private rooms as well as the tipis, yurt, and tents. This place is very reminiscent of the old Doe Bay but with a few welcomed upgrades. The grounds are well kept, the rooms and common areas... More

I stayed in the dorms here and couldn't recommend this place more!! Golden Tree truly is a gem and not only the most affordable place to crash in Eastsound, it's also a short walk from the most breathtaking spot to catch the sun dropping below the horizon, and the whole grounds, from the twinkly lights in the yard to the...

I love the Golden Tree. The central house is charming and warm, with such attention to detail in its lovely restoration. The ambiance is pleasant, the light is ample, the people have good vibrations. Glimpses of history and artistry abound, on walls and tucked into corners. Found objects are often a source of amusement and wonder. The kitchen is a... More

Drew and the staff were so helpful and accommodating to me. I;m a middle aged woman and felt rather out of place staying in a hostel, but they couldnt have been more welcoming and hospitable. the farm house and the grounds are beautiful, and peaceful, The walk to the beach very short distance. i would highly recommend the experience!

- Quaint & hip 1890's renovation. - The owner and family are super sweet. - Hot tub, sauna, pool table, fire pit, tipi, dome?!?!? - Very clean rooms, bathrooms, kitchen, landscaping, and tub. - A 10 minute walk to restaurants, bars, grocery stores, & gift shops. - Typical hostel guest silliness at times, but not worse than anywhere else!
