Cottage-in-the-Barn on Dragonfly Farm

Lakefront cottage with kitchen and patio
Go back in time on our quintessential island farm: sweet accommodations, garden at your doorstep, pond with kayaks and canoe, and complete tranquility and privacy. This charming cottage has all amenities in a pastoral setting; the perfect secluded hub for your island adventures, equally well-suited for a family vacation or romantic get-away. Tucked away in a valley below our main house, it is adjacent to our garden with produce for your table. Feel free to stroll to the bluff for views of West Sound, or take the canoe and kayaks for a spin. Fall asleep to the lullaby frog chorus. With the pond and plethora of beautiful vegetation, our 25 acre farm has become a bird sanctuary, with hundreds of species throughout the seasons. This one bedroom plus loft apartment is well-appointed with quality furnishings. Queen bed in the bedroom, two twins in the loft above (accessible by beefy ladder with security gate at the top), and full sized leather sofa bed in the living room. Can sleep 5-6 cozily. Full kitchen, propane barbecue, flatscreen and blue-ray player for entertainment (no cable or satellite), wireless internet connection, and warmth from the propane heating stove. AND our 25 acre farm adjoins Turtleback Mountain Preserve! This island treasure has amazing hikes which vary from old forested areas to phenomenal vistas of neighboring islands and beyond. We are located just five miles from the ferry, five miles from the main village of Eastsound, and a mere 1 1/2 miles from the waters at West Sound, including a marina and private dock for moorage.

5/5 Excellent

Great Little Getaway!
Whenever we go on vacation I usually CANNOT wait to get up and explore the town on the first day. Not this time.....I was perfectly happy sitting by the beautiful garden drinking my coffee and watching the butterflies and hummingbirds while my kids and dog explored the property. This place is truly special.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful inside and out!
Cozy, cute space. Everything you could need. Beautiful farm, garden, and pond. Serene setting!

5/5 Excellent

Loved it!!!!
Just like a picture! Darling house, garden, chickens, pond. Clean, cute, comfortable. There was everything we needed. We loved it, loved the island, and hope to come back. Thank you!

5/5 Excellent

Absolutely delightful
Great base to explore the west side of Orcas. We spent plenty of time just relaxing in the yard, visiting the chickens, and reading on the couch. Some comfort with heights is useful for those staying in the loft - the ladder is super sturdy and it’s very cozy once you’re up there. Great interactions with the host. Very worth the visit.

5/5 Excellent

All you can hear is the birds
What a lovely getaway! This cottage is even better than the pictures. The location is very quiet and secluded. The grounds are charming with lots of places to sit and enjoy the calls of the birds. We found the cottage to be very clean and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking with a large selection of pots, pans and utensils. The beds were comfortable and the wifi was reliable. We love that it was dog-friendly and we definitely hope to return in the future.
