About Lisa Strauss - Timber Lodge

My husband and I live on Orcas island and manage our own vacation homes so this enables us to respond to our guests needs quickly. You will find that we provide over the top amenities that are not typically found in most vacation homes as our goal is to exceed our guests expectations!

Lisa Strauss - Timber Lodge purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Lisa Strauss - Timber Lodge chose Orcas Island

We had been exploring different States on the West Coast for where to purchase our second vacation rental home when we discovered the San Juan Islands. On the flight over from Seattle we were totally taken back by the beautiful scenery. We viewed property on all three islands but, by the time the ferry landed on Orcas Island we knew instantly that this was the island for us. I had seen the photos of Timber Lodge on the internet so I was excited for the agent to show us the home. We had pretty much decided if it was as good in person we were buying it. The moment my husband and I stepped into the front door we were awestruck and said “where do we sign”. It was so much better than we expected and had the real rustic Lodge feel. Best of all was it was on three acres of privacy and had much better ocean views than we imagined. We wanted something totally unique, rustic with a true feeling of the Northwest and we had found what we were looking for a vacation cabin that we could really call 'truly spectacular'. The greatest feature of this genuine Log home is every wall in the home is truly made out of logs. Log homes are known for being cooler in the summer months and nice and warm and cozy in the winter. My favorite time to visit Timber Lodge is in the cold winter months when we have a fire going in the great room and can sit down with a nice cup of tea and enjoy the beautiful scenery and the magnificent views of the sound.

What makes this cabin unique

Wonderful views, true rustic log home with furnishings that is really well suited, very cozy in summer as well as winter, fantastic home theater room and Tipi bedroom is very unique.

Also, another major benefit in renting from us is we have a legal vacation rental permit and proudly list our permit number on all of the listing sites. Guests can be reassured by renting from us that you will not have the worry of losing your lodging and your vacation spoiled by renting from an owner that is operating an illegal rental.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved the private peacefulness of Timber lodge. The lodge is almost too good to be true, and the location is second to none. I've never stayed anywhere do well equipped and so tastefully appointed. We'll be going back.

Timber Lodge on Orcas Island is just spectacular

  • 5 of 5

This is my 4th return to Timber Lodge and I still enjoy every minute there. The home is lovely with all the amenities you could want. Our Super Senior tennis group spent a couple of nights and we all loved it. We played pool and had a challenge on the dart board. Some of them got reacquainted to the piano again too. This time we didn't see any deer but in the past we did. Lisa runs a "tight ship" where everything is labeled and you understand her rules but I think this is the reason why the home has withstood time and is in immaculate condition. Thank you for "sharing" your home with us.

An Impressive Log home filled with amenities!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful and memorable holiday we had on Orcas Island. To experience different sides of the island, we intentionally split our stay among two homes. We spent the first half of our vacation at the Headland House, a stunning and private home in Deer Harbor. Thinking nothing could impress us beyond our experience at the Headland House, we were indeed equally impressed with the comfy and cozy Timberlodge home, where we spent the second half of our vacation. The Timberlodge home is situated among tall trees with breathtaking views of the East Sound. A truly classic log home (which was unique for our children) with tasteful and upscale decor. The home is exceptionally clean and well kept. The kitchen is supplied with an abundance of cooking and baking items,which includes many items not typically provided by a rental. The beds were very comfortable with quality mattresses and warm bed linens. We greatly enjoyed and utilized all of the amenities...the deck spa, pool table, saloon piano, professional/high quality home theater room and furnished tee-pee (which the children were especially impressed with). The home is conveniently located near the main town and Moran state park. An absolute pleasurable stay. We will definitely return.

Timber Lodge family event

  • 5 of 5

We could not have selected a better place for our 50th wedding anniversary for our family. The home was better than expected and the amenities were wonderful. We especially liked the full kitchen with condiments!!

The view was spectacular. We were close to EastSound and Moran Park which was a plus for all. I would recommend Timber Lodge for any large group get together. The teenagers loved the lower level pool table and the piano was a plus. Little things, like a borken door lock were fixed immediately. Thanks for providing a wonderful setting for this special event in our life. Sue and Jerry, Clermont, Fl
