Our farm is located on the western side of the Turtleback Mountain Preserve and is surrounded by hundreds of acres of pristine forest, wetlands and rugged coastline. There are extensive trails and secluded roads for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. The property has a large freshwater lake that is ideal for swimming and many scenic spots for picnicking.

From our farm, guests may hike up to the summit of Turtleback Mountain where there are spectacular views of the surrounding San Juan & Canadian Gulf Islands, coastal mountain ranges or access the public trail system on the Turtleback Mountain Preserve.

Day trips by kayak or sailing & fishing charter boats are an easy 5 minute drive away in Deer Harbor and allow visitors to Orcas the chance to explore other islands such as Lopez, Shaw or San Juan.

The city of Eastsound is a 20 minute drive from the farm. The quaint town sits right on the water and boasts many shops and an abundance of wonderful restaurants.

From Orcas Island, guests may choose to explore other destinations. Hop on the ferry from Orcas to Sydney, British Columbia and drive to Victoria or explore Vancouver Island. Likewise, take the eastbound ferry and head to Seattle or Vancouver, B.C. All are within a radius of 80 miles or less and accessible by plane, ferry or bus/car.
