About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, 10 minute walk to Eastsound Village and 5 min to Beach Park

Leave your car parked at the house and avoid the busy streets of Eastsound! 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 mature 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 smart 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 Orcas Island

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

Thanks! It was a lovely place, just the right size for our family,

and very well appointed. I like how it felt private and secluded, back in

the woods in a small cabin community, but was so close to town. We

especially loved watching the hummingbird turf wars off the deck. Also, we

heard a pair of great horned owls hooting last night, one sounded rather

close. Maybe there's a nest nearby!

Beautiful Home and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with another couple stayed for 3 nights at this lovely home. The house was as pictured, clean, comfortable and really nicely stocked up in the kitchen. We cooked our dinners there and enjoyed sitting on the deck. During the day, we could easily walk into Eastsound and also tour around the Island. We would definitely return for another stay and recommend it to others! Pamela was also great to deal with and was responsive and helpful as we planned for our stay.

floating amongst the huckleberry (bush) house

  • 5 of 5

so yes, not quite a treehouse but definitely amidst the trees and natural beauty of orcas island wonder. a fabulous place to stay over the holiday weekend during winter when orcas is a sleepier place, even so close by to eastbound. the huckleberry house was such a cozy place to return after days adventuring around the island. well appointed, easy to navigate and very well cared for; would definitely recommend! love me some orcas island and my stay at the huckleberry house only furthered such notions.

Cute house very comfortable close to Eastsound.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the Huckleberry house for 4 days. It was close to everything. The house had everything we needed for our stay.

We enjoyed sitting out on the deck in the morning and evening. The only draw back from that is the house is up from the main road and it can get noisy. Overall we would stay here again. K & J from San Diego

The house was easy to find, immaculately clean, and perfectly located.

  • 5 of 5

Pamela was easy and pleasant to communicate with. Their house is beautifully situated near everything you need without feeling touristy or too overdone. Really you couldn't ask for much better. There's also a ton of blackberry bushes that line the road across from the house to top it all off. Would return to Huckleberry house in a heartbeat!
