The Lodge on Orcas Island is more than a hostel but different than a B & B.
We call it a European Style Guest House.
We offer 4 private rooms and 1 executive suite. The 4 rooms share 3 common baths, the kitchen and living areas. The suite has a private bath and sitting area.
The Lodge is available for rent by the room or you may arrange to have exclusive use of the entire property.
We are an ideal venue for weddings, receptions, family reunions, meetings and retreats.
For those who need a home away from home we offer reduced rates for your extended stay.
Private room/shared bath-$89.
Executive suite/private bath-$149.
Exclusive use of the entire property-$995.
Prices quoted are nightly + 10.1% sales and lodging tax.
Unless you opt for exclusive use of the property you can look forward to mingling and getting acquainted with other travelers from around the world.
Although we do not serve food many of our guests bring their own groceries and take advantage of the always spotless, fully equipped kitchen. You will find oil and vinegar, salt and pepper, numerous spices, dish soap, foil, wrap, wax paper, pots and pans, plates, dishes, flatware, glasses, sharp cooking knives and various utensils.
At the Lodge we endorse slow living, voluntary simplicity and a love and respect for nature.
Upon entering the house you may gradually notice that something is missing.
What could it be? No television? That's right. Where others would have a home theater, our living room couches are flanked instead by 2 huge freshwater fish tanks.
We call it 'The Aquarium Lounge'.
So rather than electronic blather, the sounds you can expect to hear are the trickling of water, bird song, the breeze whispering through the trees, nocturnes by Chopin, ballads by Diana Krall.
Our aesthetic is informed by the American Arts and Crafts movement. Though not a museum, you may notice many craftsman inspired touches throughout the house and adjoining property.
We emphasize cleanliness. Allergy sufferers, the chemically sensitive and those who simply don't care to be assaulted by caustic fragrances will appreciate that we use only naturally scented soaps and cleansers for the laundry and household. The house always smells fresh and clean.
We know how complicated it's gotten to take some toiletries along. So In the baths we provide shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and toothpaste. Brands currently featured are Dr. Bronners or Trader Joe's.
The Lodge is recognized by Washington State as a Backyard Wildlife Sanctuary. Nature lovers will enjoy basking in their soothing song as the resident birds gather at our baths and feeders.
The grounds are green and manicured and the fruit orchard boasts 23 trees. Under the towering conifers you'll find a huge log picnic table, complementary charcoal barbecues and outdoor lounge furniture.
If it is respite you are seeking, you've come to the right place. Put your ambitions aside and head for one of the several Pawley’s Island Presidential cotton rope hammocks hanging beneath the Western Red Cedars. Nothing spells relief like sinking into a quilt lined hammock and being lulled into a deep and restful sleep unlike anything you've ever experienced.
For a limited time book 3 nights between Sunday and Thursday. You pay the first 2 and the 3rd night is on us. It's our way of saying thanks for your mid-week business.
Come……………. study the art of hammock.
