Interaction with guests
I will send you details on the house once your booking is confirmed. I will need your travel contact number and relation and names of people in your party. Texting is best when you are on the island and there are certain areas on the island where there is no cell service. The house has internet and cell service. Verizon and TMoibile is best. If you need to ask any questions prior please email me otherwise if time sensitive while on island please text me your questions. I am happy to help if can. Please check Orcas Island chamber of commerce for activities and details about the island.

This home was so lovely and dreamy! Suzanne takes such wonderful care of it - it was incredibly clean and comfortable. We loved drinking tea on the deck, and waking up to the sunrise every morning. The house was an easy drive away from magical...More

I am so sorry your time at Forest House was very unsatisfactory by what you have focused on here. You are the first to comment on the bed, I don’t want sore backs for anyone and will look into that. But I am not sure...More

About the neighborhood
The house is in a neighborhood on the north shore with a view of the water and Mount Baker. It is a very quiet beautiful setting amongst the trees and yet only 4 miles from the main town of Eastsound, 10 minutes by car. You are the only ones there at the house, so it is very private. The neighborhood is very quiet, please respect the community by driving the speed limit, no loud radios or partying--this would not be that type of place for that. Thank you.
Getting around
I recommend having a car on the island. The Island is so beautiful, I encourage people to definitely go to Moran State Park. There is so much to see and experience or just rest at the house. Google Orcas island Wa Chamber of Commerce, you will find all the details.

How to get there
It is best to have a car on the island. There is parking at the house for 2 cars. The house is 10 min. from the main town of Eastsound which has many restaurants, shops and grocery store and airport. It is 30 min. from the ferry landing. During the winter months of Nov-Feb....it is good to have a 4 wheel drive vehicle if it snows or threat of snow...(which is a few days a year)
