About Leonard Sweet

Owners Leonard Sweet and Karen Elizabeth Ronnie have built The Salish Seaside Escapes to be a unique destination getaway that you'll never forget. Leonard has personally collected the antiques that decorate the cottages. Several buildings were designed and built by renowned architect James Hubble and Heron Cove was featured for its art and beauty. Each cottage has a story and a representative animal. And they are filled with art, books, and interesting collections. They hope you'll enjoy this property and the cottages as much as they do.

Leonard Sweet purchased this cottage in 1984

Why Leonard Sweet chose Orcas Island

Orcas Island is like being in a "land before time." You almost expect a brontosaurus to peek around the corner of a nearby fern. The Salish Seaside Escapes' cottages are designed uniquely to fit right into the natural landscape. The fresh air, blue water and skies, the sunny days in this little "banana belt" of the San Juan Islands will lure you back again and again. There's a peace and calm to the island, and the owner hides away to write his more than 60 books right here at The Salish. The island is magical. We know you'll think so too.

What makes this cottage unique

At the Salish Seaside Escapes, you'll have all of the comforts of home, along with upscale, luxury amenities. Fully stocked kitchens, our signature local dark bean coffee (free in every cottage), our hot tubs, and decks allow you to take in the smells of the forest, and interact with the many variations of wildlife you'll find on the island. Watch Eagle's soar and encounter a deer on the path. Walk by the water and see otters sunning on the rocks. Pick blackberries and plums, spend time in the gardens. Or take time to enjoy the many island activities nearby, such as kayaking, Mt. Constitution, biking, trails, and the little shops and restaurants of nearby Eastbound. Orcas Island is a special place. And The Salish Seaside Escapes is the best of the north shore.
