About janice & greg

We are living our dream on Orcas Island, and thrilled to provide an extra special spot to share our paradise with visitors from the rest of the world.

We moved to Orcas in 2009 from Portland, Oregon (not a bad spot either!). After purchasing a vacation cabin on Mt. Hood that found us never wanting to leave, we decided to find a similarly beautiful spot to make a new life. For us, it was Orcas Island.

We purchased the Island Tree house in 2013, and have spent every free moment making it what we hope you find a dream-come-true for visitors to our beautiful island.

Greg is a manager with San Juan County, and Janice works in design. Our 120 pound Sheep Dog, Lewis, loves it here too!

Collectively, we are boaters, aviators, firefighters, fisherfolk, gardeners, artists and crafters.

We are dedicated to making your stay the very best possible!

Tree! House!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to add my voice to the chorus of those singing the praises of The Treehouse. My wife and I spent a weekend there in February-- and couldn't have had a better time. Felt like we'd found our spot on Orcas. As others have said, The Treehouse is super clean, quiet, and comfortable...but it's so much more than that: it's downright delightful. The craftsmanship, the decorative touches, the artwork, the paint, the lighting, the furnishings...all suggest a builder with not only a marvelous design sense--a good eye and brain--but also a warm heart and soul. And speaking of warmth: Janice and Greg. They are so easy, so responsive; you can tell they really want you to enjoy your stay. Yes: Good vibes all around. Can't wait to return.

Perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

Can't think of a better place to relax than on a quaint and peaceful island. Your treehouse was the perfect setting...a little 50's retro which I adored but also absolutely functional and comfortable, nestled in the treetops with even a visiting "pet" deer. We went hiking, whale watching, girly shopping and island hopping. And let us not forget all the delicious eats the islands have to offer, even off season. I want to come back and bring all my friends to share in this wonderful retreat. Excellent vacation. Thank you

Discover Zen-like peace at this cozy bungalow surrounded by nature

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4, including 9 and 10 year old girls arrived at the treehouse and were blown away at the beautiful, rustic yet modern decor and the impeccable cleanliness. We discovered later that the LOVELY art work was created by Janice! I brought a hammock stand and spent hours each day reading on the wrap-around deck, while listening to the birds chirping around us. The property is convenient to everything. We enjoyed hiking, whale watching, swimming at Rosario resort and Moran State Park, driving around the island, and the unique shops in town. We so look forward to staying here again!

Perfect treetop perch, inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

I totally agree with the other five-star reviews for this unique, well-appointed and perfectly charming home away from home! What experience could be better than awakening to walk into the living room in the treetops, with every deep green bough on every side bathed in gold from the morning sun! It was simply beautiful. Janice's decorating whimsy is a delight, and the oft-praised amenities included a Trager smoker on the deck which supplied us and our dinner guests with wonderful barbecue meals on the generous deck. Top it off with daily visits from the resident deer family, the red-headed woodpecker laughing in the trees, the walking access to Rosario's wonderful restaurant and facilities-- well truly, it was a perfect stay.
