Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful relaxing, restful, and enjoyable week in this cottage. We were able to sit on the cove watching the boats, birds, or read in chairs down at the water. The one day it rained we used the wood burning fireplace to keep cozy and warm while watching TV and reading. We cooked in sometimes, but generally ate at one of the several really good restaurants in the nearby town.
Our cove was private and we only saw Heidi a couple of times. The kitchen was fully equipped and the antique fixtures and décor were very pleasing and functional. The pictures don't really do the property justice. We would definitely plan to vacation here again if we decide to come to the area. The location is very convenient to the ferry, grocery, and town.

Wonderful retreat on Orcas Island

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful few days here - The owner has great taste and has created a charming retreat (most suitable for a couple or solo retreat). The place is nicely furnished to a high standard and is cosy with lovely views. The kitchen is well equipped but (due to regulations) there's not much by way of spices etc so best to come prepared if you plan to cook. There is a Weber grill and we did a bit of both - dining out in nearby Eastsound as well as grilling. We also passed many a pleasant hour down by the water - there's a fire pit, comfortable chairs and a table outside and we found it so relaxing. The island is lovely - Mt. Constitution and the national park nearby. Owner pleasant but unobtrusive - her home is close by but there is great privacy and peace and tranquility. Absolutely adored Judd Cove and this comfy retreat. Lovely claw foot bathtub and great storage. Wifi a bit slow but frankly this is the perfect place to detach from the web and read books and relax. Look forward to another visit!

Charming Cottage on Orcas

  • 5 out of 5
We rented this charming cottage on Orcas Island for a week this past summer. I have to admit that this was the best vacation I have ever been on. I have used VRBO several times and this was overall the most successful experience. This rental property really offers an outstanding price for all of the amenities and location. Judd Cove is about a 10-15 minute drive from the ferry landing, 5 minutes from downtown Eastsound and a 10-15 minute drive to Moran State Park. The property is well kept and clean, has a great kitchen with everything you might need for meal preparation, has internet and cable and in unit washer and dryer. The owner of the property is a wonderful woman and she allows the renters to enjoy her gorgeous property; we built a bonfire on the shore, walked down to Judd Cove and spent time by the small pond. Overall, I could not say enough about my time in the San Juan islands and I know that part of the experience was the wonderful stay we had here. The cottage offered everything that we could have asked for and more. Looking forward to going back!

One of our new favorite places

  • 5 out of 5
This gorgeous guest cottage is even more lovely and charming in person. The furnishings and details that the owner took the time to make really made this one of the best VRBO properties we have ever rented- and we have rented a lot. Everything was of the highest quality and therefore extremely comfortable - and the view from the cottage was amazing and gorgeous. The cottage is also extremely close to all the attractions on the island, making its location accessible and ideal. The kitchen was a good size with all necessary utensils for making a nice meal if choosing to stay in. There is WIFI, Netflix, cable if you feel like watching some tv in the evening. A wood burning oven stocked with wood to make a fire is also in the living room. I also really loved all the vintage and antique details such as the beautiful stove and the comfy claw foot bathtub - nice for long soaks after an all day sea kayaking excursion. On top of it all, the owner was so sweet and friendly, and we enjoyed our conversations and moments with her. I can't praise this property enough, and the next time I come to Orcas Island, this will be the first place I choose to stay in.

Restful Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
Had a romantic, relaxing weekend, cozied up by the wood stove. Beautiful views and scenery right from the cottage. Nice options for walks and hikes. The accommodations were very nice! Everything we needed was there. Plenty of things to do on the island and it doesn't take long to get to it all.

Nice, clean, 2 person unit over garage.

  • 4 out of 5
This is a very clean one bedroom, one bed unit. It is located about a mile from Eastsound on a hill above Judd Cove, next to the owner's house. There is a pretty steep set of stairs to get to the unit unless one walks out on the lawn and up the hill. The windows have nice views of the lawn and Judd Cove. Except for the fact that there was nothing but salt, pepper, and sugar in the cupboards to cook with, it had everything else in the way of dishes, utensils, appliances, pots and pans. However, there is a large grocery store in Eastsound that has everything one needs. There are also several restaurants, although they keep short or no hours during the off season. Call before you go. There is also a washer and dryer. The queen bed was exceptionally comfortable. The Wi Fi worked, but was very slow most of the time. The 40" TV worked well and there was a DVD player, but no DVDs. The shower was in a claw foot tub, which had no place to put your hands when standing, so it was a little hard to stay balanced when showering. There are soap, shampoo, lotion, toilet paper, kleenex, and a small hair dryer. There is a small fire stove in the living room, with logs but no kindling. However, the central heating kept the place nice and warm. There is a nice patio out back with a barbecue, table, and chairs. There are also tall trees surrounding the unit, so it is in the shade a lot. The property has a very large lawn leading down to the cove. It has a series of ponds, which various birds visit, including eagles and herons. The beach is more of a pebble and rock beach, no sand. There are a table and chairs near the beach on the lawn. The owner was very nice and accommodating, with good tips on what to see and do and where to eat. However, she is selling the place so it may not be the same owner when you go. She also has a cat that can be very friendly. It may come visiting. Overall it was very comfortable for 2 people, but would be hard for physically handicapped. We would recommend for a short stay, such as a weekend or a few days. While there, take a whale cruise, rent a kayak or take a kayak adventure, but expect rain. There are some nice hikes, such as Obstruction Pass. Also drive to the top of Moran Park for the view from the lookout. There is a $10 per day fee to use the park and hiking trails. There are also lots of places to see birds and sea life along the island's coast. Ask the owner and other locals for their favorite spots.

Owner's Response: I am the original owner and that will not change on this site.

The Guest Cottage has 900 square feet of living space, carriage house style, above a detached garage built into a hill side. Pictures have been added to the web site showing the outside of the building. It is situated behind and to the side of the main house at an angle that gives privacy.

The stairs are standard risers with the standard 13 steps. No steeper than normal stairs rising up one level.

The picture of the pasture leading to the bay is taken from the Guest Cottage bedroom window. By NW standards the house sits on a small to medium hill.

It is against the county code to stock any food that has been opened, limiting the ability to provide spices or oils.

The Wi-Fi is the fastest speed available on the island and the guest cottage has its own modem. It appears the phone company has worked to improve its service.

There is a non-skid mat for the claw foot tub and several possibilities for using it, from a rain shower head to a hand held shower to a faucet for filling the tub.

The enameled wood stove has a glass front for fire watching. Extra fire wood and kindling are available a few feet away at the stone garden shed. A picture of the shed has been added to the web site.

Part of the beauty of the San Juans is its rugged rocky coast line. One would be hard pressed to find a sandy beach and many beaches are pocket beaches. At Judd Cove, the full head of the bay is available for walking. The protected cove has historical interest as an Indian Shell Midden and also as an old lime kiln location (the original lime kiln is still standing).

The description of the Guest Cottage on the web site states it is in the trees overlooking a sunny pasture and that it is not handicapped assessable. While there is no lawn, per say, it is surrounded on three sides by expansive pastures, just beyond the trees.

One must take into consideration the cost of the accommodation when rating a property. Others have rated Judd Cove Guest House five stars, not because it is truly a five star property, but because, for the money, it is a great value. One is not likely to find five star accommodations at a three star price, but Judd Cove is a good run for the money with some five star touches.
