About Susan Gudgell
We have been on Orcas Island for many decades (in fact Wally grew up here!), so know the island well. We can suggest not only popular travel adventures, but little known gems on island backroads.
Susan Gudgell purchased this Condo in 1990
Why Susan Gudgell chose Eastsound
We purchased this property for love of the historic Porter Building, located next door. For years this portion was vacant, occupied by a parking lot and dumpsters. We dreamed of beautifying the shoreline, dedicating a beach access to the public and building stairs to the water. At last we've completed our vision with the 'Main Street Station.' SeaStar Lofts allows us to welcome travelers to our favorite place in the world.
What makes this Condo unique
Sipping coffee or a glass of wine on the patio, breathing in that clear island air, and contemplating the view! We also love wandering around the village, hiking in the Turtleback Mountain Reserve, and exploring Moran State Park. We know many of the restauranteurs in town and there are a remarkable number of delicious options for an evening out.

Fantistic View from Lovely Studio
Studio was perfect for two people. It was bright, stylish, and comfortable with an amazing view. We were there for a trail race in Moran State Park and the studio was perfectly located. We cooked one meal and it seemed to have all of the basics necessary to eat in. The fireplace was appreciated on some chilly days. The bakery across the street is not to be missed - there are some master pastry chefs hidden away here! Orcas was very quiet in the winter and quite a few of the shops/restaurants were closed for the season. It made for a calm stay at the studio. One last note, the wifi was out when we arrived and the owner addressed it immediately.
We had a wonderful time staying here! Beautiful view, comfortable bed, and great location! Only downfall was the garbage had not been emptied upon our arrival and when the neighbors are watching TV you can hear it through the wall. Other than that I would definitely recommend staying here.
We're pleased that this room continues to get accolades from our guests, but regret the housekeeping error that overlooked the garbage. It's the first time that's happened and hopefully the last. :-) We have double wall construction to mitigate sound between the units.
Perfect location for Orcas Island Exploring & Eating!
As a Seattle native, and now a native of neighboring Guemes Island, I've been coming to Orcas for about 50 years. Staying at cabins in Deer Harbor, writing a travel article 25 years ago about an historic hotel in Eastsound called the Outlook Inn, staying at Rosario Resort also with it's historic story, being on a yacht at Rosario numerous times, camping on nearby Jones Island on a sailboat. This is the BEST spot to stay on Orcas. Pop out the door and the town of Eastsound is at your feet. Great restaurants, the history, the view.
Cozy and comfortable with all the amenities we needed and gorgeous view
Really enjoyed our stay. Perfect location and gorgeous view.
Perfect location, wonderful view, outstanding studio!
We loved everything about our stay at Windward Studio. It had everything we needed and was comfortable and roomy. And the view is amazing. Susan was a great host and even checked up on us when the island experienced a brief power outage. When we return to Orcas we will definitely plan to stay here again. Kim
The condo is in a great location in the middle of the quiet town. Close to restaurants and shops. Amazing views. The condo was clean and well appointed.
