Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Eastsound - Huckleberry House

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Walk to Town and Beach

Spring Special in effect for stays now through May 13, 2015.

Conveniently located, 10 minute walk to the village of Eastsound and 5 minutes walk to the beach at Waterfront Park, charming Huckleberry House is comfortably equipped to be your Orcas Island home away from home!

From a south-facing slope, we overlook the bay beautifully filtered by native trees from the living, dining and loft areas.

Centrally located halfway between Moran State Park and the ferry landing, the Eastsound area's many restaurants, shops and activities make it an ideal home base for island visitors. A scenic 15 minute drive takes you to Moran State Park with miles of hiking trails and beautiful Cascade Lake which offers swimming, fishing and boat rentals.

Fully furnished including leather sofas, new 40' flat screen TV with DVD and free WIFI. A well-equipped kitchen with washer and dryer, and spacious dining area. Plus two queen bedrooms, one in an upstairs loft with a tree-filtered view of East Sound Bay. The lofted, exposed beam ceilings, and fir trim on battened walls give our charming craftsman home a bright and cozy atmosphere.

Huckleberry House is the perfect spot for a relaxing stay on Orcas in any season, or an ideal starting point for your exploration of all the San Juan Islands.

About Pamela Guyer

Pam & Steve on Cascade Lake Bridge, Moran State Park, Orcas Island

Pamela Guyer purchased this house in 2006

Why Pamela Guyer chose Eastsound

Welcome to Huckleberry House!

We purchased it in 2006 when we were compelled by family issues to return to the mainland after a short but delightful six years of living in the islands. It was a way for us to keep our 'foot in the door' and have a place to stay while visiting the good friends we made while we lived here. You'd never know it if I didn't tell you, but it was actually built in the 60's and completely renovated inside and out shortly before we purchased it. We really like that it's lived on the island so long. We also really enjoy the central location. When we lived here, we were on an outer island and Eastsound was an hour away, so it's a big treat for us to be able to walk into 'town' on a whim. We love Orcas because it provides the best of both worlds; amazing outdoor scenery and activities as well as good eats and fun shops. I know you'll find our house and Orcas Island as relaxing and charming as we do.

Cheers!

What makes this house unique

May I just say location, location, location!!!

Staying right in the center of Orcas Island gives you easy access to the 'ends' of the island if you'd like to explore during your visit. And if you'd rather stay home and relax at the house, it's really nice to be so close to the village that you can easily walk or drive there in a few minutes for coffee or a little shopping or a meal or the groceries to make one back at the house.

Enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The weekend was amazing. Your place is perfect. Thank you so much for everything. So impressed. House had everything we needed without having to look for it. I think we need a label maker! Thanks again, will recommend your home on this beautiful island to my family.

Wonderful birthday weekend get-away

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely LOVED Steve and Pam's Huckleberry House! Was there for just a short (too short) weekend get away with special friend, mountain bike, bottle of bubbly, cozy clothes and SUNGLASSES (yay - sunny in the Pacific Northwest in late November - not too common...) This home is perfectly appointed - charming, cozy, perfect combination of modern and traditional. I truly could live full-time in this house (wonder if the bakery down the street would hire me?) Thanks Pam and Steve for a fabulous weekend get-away. We will be back!

Very charming little cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife came out for a short babymoon. This was one of only a handful of options for our short (2-night only) trip. Very close to Eastsound made it easy to get food, go out for dinner and get around the island in general. We enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it.

A great stay in a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home for our family of four. It was everything we expected from viewing the photos of the property, and it provided us with a warm and cozy home-base for our activities. Our daughters (age 11 and 14) loved the loft and we all loved the décor and amenities, especially the wood stove. We drank coffee in the morning while enjoying the wonderful views from the dining area; and, we sipped wine on the deck in the evening to wind down after busy days out. The proximity to Eastsound was nice - we were able to easily pop over there for meals when we weren't preparing them at "home". And, we all had fun collecting shells and viewing the starfish at the local beach.

Perfect!

Perfect for my husband, myself and our two daughters. Everything was cute and well maintained. The location to the beach and town were great too.

perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Huckleberry House was the perfect location for our first visit to Orcas Island with another couple. We enjoyed the character of this spanking clean craftsman home equipped with all the necessities to feel right at home. The wood burning stove was a special treat on the cool evenings as was waking up to pick fresh blackberries behind the house an additional sweet surprise. The perfect size cabin for two couples or one couple with several children. We easily walked into Eastsound on Saturday and discovered a wonderful farmer's market. Thanks for a memorable stay at Huckleberry house.
