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. SJC Permit #00PR0V77. MARCH 2020 UPDATE: due to Corona Virus concerns we're offering a full refund in the event cancellations are necessary. Please note that we thoroughly disinfect the cottage between guests.

Very nice nook for a visit, not built as a real residence. Loft with two beds we didn't use, master was roomy. Excellent place to base for a visit to Orcas island, has everything you need for a relaxing night or day.

Perfect Long Weekend
I wanted to see Orcas Island during the winter when it is colder and darker. This little cabin was snug and perfectly situated for us since we had been before and were familiar with the general layout of the island. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

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.
