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 house 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 house unique

Timber Lodge accommodations are over the top with a state of the art home theater room, and just about every amenity we could think of for cooking and entertaining. This home has the perfect sleeping accommodations for couples as the home has four king size beds. Tipi bedroom available in summer is great for teens that want to have their own space with a great Tipi seating area with Flatscreen TV and DVD.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

An amazing vacation home with unbelievable attention to detail. Cannot recommend enough!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Timber Lodge and it was made even better with all of the new accommodations the owners have made. We very comfortably slept 10 guests and never felt cramped. The lodge was extremely clean and well kept when we arrived, and completely lived up to the advertised specifications. We hope to make the Timber Lodge an annual getaway!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and amazingly equipped with every kitchen gadget you can imagine (who knew you could own a crepe griddle?). Great value for the price, we loved the game room and theater, and of course the island is beautiful. Thanks for a great visit!

Perfect girlfriends getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful way to spend my 40th birthday with my girlfriends !! House was spectacular !! So much thought and time was put into the perfecting of this house. And you the guest are at the center of it. Each detail was designed with you in mind. From the comfort of the living and sleeping space to the amazing kitchen with every appliance imaginable. A wonderful welcome package was awaiting us and throughout our stay we knew if we needed anything, the owner was just a phone call away. The view from the deck was breathtaking and it was fun to wake up to deer in the yard. I fully intend to come back to this house as it was one of the best accommodations I have ever experienced.

Perfect Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Timber Lodge is an excellent location to relax, enjoy time with family and friends, and get away from the hustle and bustle of urban life. This is my second year in a row returning to the Timber Lodge around my birthday since there's no need to go anywhere else.

Everything I could personally want in a vacation is provided by Timber Lodge. The warm feeling of relaxing in the cabin, or looking out into the sound from the deck with a cup of coffee, or getting competitive around the game room, or winding down in the hot tub, or even enjoying a legitimate in-house theater experience with a fantastic movie are all reasons why I will return to the Timber Lodge again and again!

November at Timber Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at Timber Lodge and we were planning our return trip before this one was done. A beautiful, private location with a wonderful view of the water. Timber Lodge was just as we remembered it from last year - well-stocked kitchen and pantry, games room, hot tub and on and on. We can't wait to go again.

Fall at Timber Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Loved...loved...LOVED our stay at Timber Lodge earlier this month. It is truly a special place on Orcas Island, and was actually one of the highlights of our visit. Beautiful home located in a peaceful and quiet setting, amazing views and a large deck to enjoy the sunsets. And the amenities really can't be beat. Besides an incredibly well-stocked kitchen, there is home theater, game room and hot tub...it doesn't get much better than that! We arrived to music, a waterfall feature near the entrance, a welcoming lit interior lamp, and a visit from Richard, one of the owners, who graciously introduced us to our temporary vacation home for 5 glorious days. Additionally, Timber Lodge is conveniently situated near the town of Eastsound (restaurants, food, gas, museums, shops), Moran State Park (great hiking and views from the top of Mount Constitution) and Rosario Resort (kayak and boat rentals, whale watching tours, great little restaurant with stunning views). Thank you Richard and Lisa for sharing your Shangri-la! We hope to see you again.

Thank you Richard and Lisa for sharing Timber Lodge.
