As with many waterfront homes in the Islands, Lighthouse on the Shore is high-bank waterfront and has steep drop offs between the house and the water. This drop off is protected by a continuous split rail fence to keep children from the drop-off danger. However, parents of young children should closely supervise all children while in residence at this home.

    kathryn w from eastsound, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We chose this amazing home to accommodate 11 people, including my 101 year old great aunt. Everyone was very comfortable and extremely impressed with the beautiful home- not to mention the view! It was quite cold out but we still enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit out on the deck. The kitchen, bathrooms, and rooms were well stocked and very clean. It felt like we were in a 5 star hotel for the weekend. Thank you!

    Lexton T from Stayton, OR recommends this vacation rental

    we loved this house. It was roomy and private for two couples. In the evening we would go to upstairs and watch the sun set. The master bedroom and bath are spacious and just beautiful. The view from the master is wonderful. The other bedrooms are very nice too. The kitchen is open to the living area and is awesome. Will be back.

    Tom N from Carmel Valley, CA recommends this vacation rental

    The Lighthouse Vacation home was the nicest home we have ever rented in any Location in the US, hands down!
    My Wife and I rented the beautiful home for a week to celebrate our 35th Anniversary of our a Wedding. We wanted something that was upscale and private with ocean views. When we arrived at the house we couldn’t believe how nice the location was and how awesome the views were. Opening the front doors and seeing the huge open floor plan, vaulted ceilings and windows looking out over the East Sound waters was jaw dropping. There are sliding glass doors leading out to decks that wrap around the entire house. The chaise lounge seating and outside fire pit was a great place to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature we just fabulous. There was also a large new hot tub on the deck that we used everyday in the morning and evening. You can sit in the tub with your cocktails and or coffee while enjoying the tub. It was full moon during the time spent there so the nights in the tub and the outside seating was like a romantic dream.
    The kitchen was a dream and we enjoyed cooking our meals and the double sided fire place that could be enjoyed from the dining room and the living room. The master bedroom on the main floor was so comfortable and cozy with floor to ceiling sliding glass doors with spectacular views was memorable.
    The master bath was very luxurious with a large double ended two person soaking tub with a large window looking out to the forest. We really enjoyed our time spent there at the light house vacation rental. We recommend this house to couples, families or groups. We will be booking this house again soon.

    Kelly C from Richland, WA recommends this vacation rental

    This house is an amazing place to gather as a family or for any other reason; just to be out in nature and enjoy the many wonders of Orcas Island. The owners John and Mariah did everything they could think of to make sure the house was ready and that we would have a wonderful time. The house has an amazing and private view of East Sound. The gas fire pit is a great place to gather on comfortable seating to enjoy the sunsets. The big hot tub was also a favorite family gathering place for watching the moon rise through the trees. The dining table and the nearby deck each seat ten and there is an awning over the deck table so we used both regularly after cooking delicious meals in the fabulous kitchen. We enjoyed paddle boating at nearby Cascade Lake, hiking to Obstruction Pass, swimming in the pool at nearby Rosario, climbing to the top of the view tower on Mt. Constitution in nearby Moran State Park. Beyond Moran, we enjoyed a great dinner at Doe Bay Café. We also enjoyed the gardens at Orcas Island Pottery and took a boat to Sucia Island and spent the day looking at tide pools and fossil beds, kayaking, and walking in the forest. The city Eastsound is only a few miles from the house and is a nice place to shop for ice cream, pastries, groceries, clothing, and souvenirs. The five grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed learning to play all the provided board games and using the big screen TV to watch photo slide shows of our past gatherings. All thirteen of us plus Milo the pup had a wonderful, refreshing time making sweet new memories.
