Baker as the special guest star. Warm your toes near the winter wood stove in the living area or read a book on the porch on a sunny summer evening. Your host, whose home is nestled nearby but buffered from sight by dwarf pines, rhodies and roses, can answer your questions. The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen with stove, full size refrigerator, microwave, coffee grinder and maker, toaster oven, toaster and a selection of local herbal teas and coffee. The luxurious king bed with pillow top is appointed with a goose down comforter and ultra soft sheets while the bath offers thick, fluffy towels.

About Linda Bannerman

Living on Orcas is a 50-year-ago dream-come-true for me. In 1964, I landed in Mt. Vernon, a freshman at Mt. Vernon High School after a young life of profound difficulties and challenges. During those high school years, I would visit the San Juans often, and remember in particular a high school graduation bike trip to Orcas. Throughout my life travels, I have thought often about those sweet days on Orcas and wondered if I might live here one day. I've worked hard and dreamed sweet. . . and now, finally, here I am. And I want to share it with you. I've taught high school English for 30 years and now have a private practice in counseling. I adore helping others, caring for the earth, and celebrating the beauty of this island and this home. Life is so full of beauty if we are willing to set aside the hustle and bustle of surviving and live just in the moment. Come here to do just that. Listen to the wind whip through the pines and firs in winter. Steady your gaze upon the purple Cascades in the evening sunset, the distant twinkling lights of a city unaware of us at their feet. Welcome the quiet visit of a doe and her buck, hoping for an apple treat offered from your hand. Come celebrate the spectacular gift of life with me here in this quiet and very special oasis.

Linda Bannerman purchased this studio in 2013

Why Linda Bannerman chose Eastsound

I wanted a home with light. I wanted a home with the sound of a tumbling creek nearby and the sight of a mated pair of eagles weaving a magic dance in the sky and using the limbs of a fir tree for rest in sight of my bedroom window. i wanted the charm of a bookstore, filled with the smell of fresh brewed coffee and a choice of books about lofts and Hemmingway only minutes from my backdoor. I have it here and want to share it with you. You who are hungry for quiet and beauty.

What makes this studio unique

This, more than any other guest home you will find, offers you spectacular views and profound quiet. Twinkling lights at night. Purple mountain views at dusk or morning. Vigorous walks on a forested road any time of day at all. Access to a community owned private beach, complete with picnic table and bench on a bluff over the Salish Sea, a front row seat at the foot of Mt. Baker.

Fabulous stay!!

  • 5 out of 5
This was my first time visiting Orcas and a great location and accommodation were high on the list. The guest cottage far exceeded my expectations. All we wanted to do was stay at the house and not explore the island. We spent both the evenings at the cottage instead of going out to restaurants. We had a wonderful fire going so we could enjoy the wine and s'mores. Linda was a wonderful host who answered all of our questions promptly. I highly recommend this place!

Absolutely exactly what we were looking for - private, quiet, stunningly beautiful. East Sound is a quaint town with a nice market & coop market, so no need to purchase your food at the ferry terminal. Studio kitchen has all you will need to make your meals in place. It is isolated, so walking to town or the wharf for killer whale boat tours or the National Park would be a stretch. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Morning coffee watching the sunrise, dinner and a glass of wine watching the sunset. Perfection! Stella enjoyed meeting Sarge, too.

Owner's Response: What wonderful guests Cathy, Paul, and sweet dog, Stella, were! One could not ask for guests more quiet, clean or friendly. The communicated travel plans well and took such good care of the cottage. Stella was exceptionally well behaved and my dog, Sargie, fell in love right away. Cathy and Paul expressed such gratitude for the quiet and the beautiful views. It is such a pleasure to share this enchanted cottage with such lovely people. I hope they return one day soon!

Tranquil retreat

We went to Orcas Island for a weddeing at Doe Bay and were very happy that we rented at Sea Forever. The setting was amazing with a panoramic view of the San Juans below. The cottage was well appointed and very clean . We have two dogs and they liked the cottage and location as well. The cottage is gar enough from the main house that you have privacy as well. The whole island of orcas is interesting and very scenic so I hope we make it back the in the future. Linda is very pleasant to work with.

Owner's Response: What a delightful guest Gregg and family (you see, I include their two adorable dogs) were! Quiet, communicative about travel plans, very clean and enthusiastic about their stay in Sea Forever Guest House, Gregg's family made the perfect guests. They seemed so appreciative of the comfort of the cottage and the simply outstanding views. Their two dogs were exceptionally well behaved and Gregg was careful to clean up any "doggie gifts" left behind. I would be thrilled to have them back anytime.

This is truly a special spot. This property is even better than it appears in the VRBO listing. The views are amazing, the setting serene, and the cottage is immaculate and comfy. Thank you Linda for a memorable trip to Orcas Island.

Really a great place to recharge. Utterly silent, just you and the sea. Very close to town (it's a small island, really) and also a wonderful state park. We would have loved to stay....

Beautiful Orcas Island has been called the 'gem of the San Juans.' A mecca for those who love to sail, fly small planes (including sea planes), and enjoy the abundance of marine life and birds, this island boasts moderate temperatures and much less rainfall than surrounding Washington locations. Enjoy one of the 40 live theatre performances a year put on at the Orcas Center. Purchase fresh produce or gifts at the weekly Saturday Farmer's Market. Treat your children to the Funhouse Commons, a kid's museum and youth center fostering education play combining science, technology, music and art. Take a tour of the islands by air or listen to the relaxing sounds at the Chamber Music Festival. The island is home to many talented artists and their works are for sale in the charming village of Eastsound. Hike some portion of the 38 miles of hiking trails in the famous Moran State Park or climb the tower on the top of Mt. Constitution, the highest mountain in the San Juan Islands. Plan your wedding to take place on one of the many fabulous beaches or challenge yourself to cycle the 57 square miles of this horseshoe shaped island. Bring your kids to the famous Camp Orkila or take a horseback ride with Olga Island Trail Rides. Or maybe you'll learn French in a night at nearby Canoe Island French Camp. Visit the Cider and Mead Festival in May or rest in your soft Queen bed after a day visiting the famous Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, ongoing throughout April. Perfect your skills at the Writers Island Poetry Writing Retreat in April or join like-minded women during the popular Women's Wellness Weekend in April. Truly this island has it all.
