Thank you for visiting...... If you have any questions feel free to write and if you don't receive a response...please check your JUNK box, it may be there. Thank you! As far as I am concerned, Orcas Island is one of the most beautiful islands to visit in Washington State! The natural beauty here with the colors of the Madrona trees, the sparkle of the water and the abundant wildlife are absolutely spectacular and a pure joy to witness. Orcas Island is abundant with pottery shops, artisan shops, music in the park, theater, kayaking, hiking, whale watching, boating, fishing, swimming and water all around....Its the best island and most magical!!!! Forest House is nestled in the woods with views of the water through the trees...it is very quiet and peaceful! It was custom built with much tender loving care by Sunray Kelly, an alternative northwest designer/builder. The house was built with mostly natural materials and a low impact on the environment. I keep working on it....it has needed some restoration work and so every year a new project addition or betterment. Tons of love is put into it between travelers..........I truly hope you enjoy yourself thoroughly!!!!!! The house has many unique features like: A sunken round soaking tub Propane fireplace Cathedral like windows and doors, 10 and 12 sided rooms with curved walls and beautiful wood throughout. 3 Decks with many different places to sit and contemplate You enter into a 12 sided Living room with lots of windows and views of the water, trees and sky. Walk down the hallway to the toilet room, tub room and a galley kitchen which was built by Faeries themselves...well not exactly but almost. The counter tops were built with live edge spalted alder and cherry wood. Copper sink, range, refrigerator and all the kitchen necessities for cooking a meal. You walk out the kitchen onto a huge deck with beautiful views. There is a new bedroom pod there, the garden room which has the main QUEEN size bed. Walk to the next deck to the two story TOWER which has a cozy couch for nesting, reading, contemplating. Or if there are 3 people or two singles it is the second bedroom.... double bed. I highly recommend...... Consider receiving a nurturing SOUND HEALING treatment by Kimberly Kirkwood...she has an office near DoeBay resort. Go to Frequencyrealms dot com I am so happy to be here and love sharing this beauty with others. On Orcas; enjoy hiking (nearby Moran State Park has over 35 miles of trails) and the beaches & the south entrance of Turtleback mountain. Rent or launch your kayak or canoe from beaches or the lakes, swim in two amazing lakes or if you dare, the sound, great fishing and eating. Eastsound has many unique shops, outdoor concerts in the summer, farmers market and an excellent performing arts center. Check out the Chamber of Commerce website for weekly happenings. There are many wonderful restaurants and pottery shops as well as a golf course. Here is what people have been saying about their time at the house. It says it all: ' Being at a place like this makes you feel alive! I always wanted to live in a “ Swiss Family Robinson” home in the trees and this home is the closest I have come to it yet. Thank you for allowing us to share this interesting place! J & E 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.
