About Larry and Liz Pollock

We, Larry and Liz Pollock, currently live on Camano Island in WA state. We purchased our dream place on Orcas Island over 25 years ago after falling in love with each other and with the island. Our cabin home was previously part of the Buckhorn Lodge back in the 1930s, and used as a fishing resort destination.

We love Orcas so much, we even got married at the little chapel in Eastsound and had our reception right at the cabin. Lovely!

The 'cabin' as we lovingly refer to it in our family, has been our place to vacation, relax, and rejuvenate with one another. Our kids, Niki and Drew, now adults, have many fond memories building rafts, playing on the beach in front, swimming in the pool, and sharing their special place with friends.

As educators we also had the added bonus to spend most of our summers on Orcas. But, now, as our kids are grown and one of us (Larry) is retired, we have decided to once again share our little piece of heaven with others, which also allows us to travel to other destinations around this amazing planet.

We welcome you to build your own memories at our Orcas cabin home.

Larry and Liz Pollock purchased this house in 1988

Why Larry and Liz Pollock chose Eastsound

The most amazing thing about this property is the easy waterfront access and spectacular views. If you know Orcas Island at all, you come to realize that low-bank waterfront homes are hard to find. Our cabin is waterfront, and has just a few steps down to the beach. There are many things to do on Orcas, but we find just being at the cabin is wonderful. We see otters, seals, porpoises, eagles and waterfowl, and deer, literally every day.

We also have an older pool & spa in our backyard, which is available during the summer and is solar heated. It is so much fun for kids and for adults!

Renters will also have use of our 3 kayaks, 1 canoe, and use of our dinghy if you own a boat.

Just minutes away from Eastsound (the main town on Orcas), it is easy to check out the local stores, grab some good food and buy your own groceries.

What makes this house unique

This cabin is truly a unique spot. Low bank waterfront, pool in the back, spectacular views, and a charming, cozy knotty pine home. One of a kind experience for all!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I stayed for 5 days in this wonderful home and location, and we can't wait to return again. Everything we needed was provided, even some things we didn't expect. We enjoyed using the pool, kayaking, making a fire in the fire pit each night, flying kites, watching movies, playing ping pong, and generally relaxing! Larry was a great host. He called before we arrived to make sure check-in and arrival was clear, called the morning we arrived, and called to check in after. He even mailed some toys back to us that we left behind accidentally. We are looking forward to many more memories in this wonderful beach house.

Peaceful Stay

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed over Memorial Day Weekend for an extra long weekend with a few of my girlfriends. The house was very roomy and comfortable. The views are stunning and the pool and hot tub are an added bonus. It's only about a 5 minute car ride to dining and shops in Eastsound. The owners are very accomodating and called me when I got there to make sure I knew how to work everything.

I had a wonderful relaxing stay and would definitely consider coming here again!

Amazing relaxing vacation

  • 5 out of 5
I'll be honest I stepped inside this home and instantly I just let the outside world slip away! We all had the best time relaxing and NOT working/schooling! The home has the most beautiful view and sitting and having coffee in the early morning hours staring at the water was amazing! I cannot wait for our next time there and I would and have recommended this home to multiple people! Thank you for opening your beautiful getaway to us! <3 Jason & Mandy

Relaxing family visit

  • 5 out of 5
What a beautiful spot! We enjoyed spectacular weather, amazing views of Mt. Baker, saw otters, eagles and a seal. There was no need to leave, because everything we needed was right there; a comfortable house with plenty of kitchen supplies, views from the dinnertable and a beach right out the front door! Having use of the kayaks was a extra special bonus. Thanks to Larry and Liz for the opportunity to reconnect with family in your lovely cabin! It provided a much-needed respite for two busy parents of a 2.5-year old in a gorgeous, peaceful setting.

Owner's Response: Hi Ellen, It is amazing to watch all the wildlife. Sometimes the otters even take a dip in our pool!! They like to wash the salt water off their pelts. Fortunately, that is never when people are around. Thanks for your review and come back again soon. Larry & Liz

Relaxing break in a beautiful house

  • 5 out of 5
We've had a very relaxed break at this beautiful, quiet and welcoming home. The house overlooks the water, and has spacious rooms. It is also very close to Eastsound's shops, so it is very convenient. Highly recommended.

Wonderful home

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful time at this home. Larry was there to greet us upon arrival and show us around the house. What a great personal touch! We were all so comfortable that our 2 year old slept well every night.

The location is amazing. Right on the water with a beautiful view of Mt. Baker. There were birds, deer and seals to watch right from the dining room. The rocky and driftwood strewn shore was great for walks and easy to launch the kayaks.

If we get the chance to go back to Orcas, we hope this house is available.

The Buckhorn Waterfront Beach Cabin is on beautiful Orcas Island. Orcas is often called the resort island because of the many beach resorts, restaurants, art galleries and charming shops. Recreational options include golf, tennis, a small movie house, live music, restaurants and, in the summer, a seasonal Saturday farmers' market. You can also hike in many places, including Moran State Park, Washington's fourth largest State Park, as well as Turtle Back Mountain. There are also several mountain lakes to explore.
