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.

We came to Forrest House to celebrate our 15 year anniversary. This was a surprise trip for my husband. When we arrived, we were filled with so much joy. You have to be here and you will feel it! This place truly takes your breath away. It is so peaceful. Relax and let the surroundings melt all your cares away....

Management response:

Thank you ! It was truly my honor to meet you both. I wish for you both the very best !

The beautiful views of the water, the islands and Mt. Baker were unexpected. And if you sleep in the tower you'll get front row seats to the sunrise.

I read about this specific propert before I even knew of the San Juans. I booked it as far in advance as Suzanne would let me to get it for our honeymoon. When we arrived, Suzanne had a sweet personalized Welcome Sign and some delicious chocolate. This property is so cool- any kid would go crazy to sleep in that...

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)
