Located in Orcas Village, the cottage is far away from everyday. Yet, close to all the conveniences --walk to ferry landing, markets and restaurants. Watch the ferry boats, kayaks, sailboats and various marine life pass by from the large sunny deck of your own very private and romantic waterfront haven built into a gentle hill right above the water. Mariner's Cottage has a comfortable king (nova foam--gel top) bed with spectacular views from the bed. It also has a comfortable queen pull out. A luxurious choice for two, a cozy cottage for a small family. Walk down to the water's edge, feel the privacy, be surprised by the quiet--see the seagulls and eagles soar, listen to the waves wash to the shore below, count the stars at night. It is amazing how many more you can see in this enviro...Located in Orcas Village, the cottage is far away from everyday.

A luxurious choice for two, a cozy cottage for a small family. Walk down to the water's edge, feel the privacy, be surprised by the quiet--see the seagulls and eagles soar, listen to the waves wash to the shore below, count the stars at night. It is amazing how many more you can see in this environment. Let the water views from every corner of the cottage work their magic on you. Like sitting on water, see the sea gulls and cormorants welcome in the ferries, look for the eagles that soar overhead and be amazed by the speed of the osprey as it lands in front of you. Wake early to see the colors of the morning on the sea. One of All Dream Cottages on Orcas Island, the surrounding land is part of the cottage experience. The cottage is grandfathered in, built closer to the water than county laws now permit. So there is nothing but water in front of you and the resident seal that comes to entertain. (also bunnies, deer -- on the waterfront!) Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 602881777More

1. We welcome children at Mariner's Dream. However, we ask that you understand that all of our cottages have been furnished and decorated to be 'dream' homes away from home. Complete 'child proofing' is not compatible with this decorating philosophy. This property is 'absolute' waterfront and while the deck is gated, it will require parents to exercise extra care. 2. Please do not feed the animals— mink, chipmunk, otter, raccoon, deer—no matter how “cute.” They like people.
