About the property

Lovely Cedar Log Cabin Home on seven acres with spacious covered front porch.

Welcome to Orcas Island an enchanting destination for a harmonious holiday. An island where the natural allure of a region rich with plush Evergreen forests, picturesque valleys, and panoramic vistas preserves a pastoral style of living. All the while, encompassed by the sights and sounds of the bountiful waters of the San Juan Islands.

Abandon the chaotic pace of life on the mainland and join us for a blissful hiatus. Summerset Hill is a splendid hand-crafted log home hewn and polished from Cedar trees on the seven acre property by local craftsmen. Comfortably furnished in the tradition of Vintage Farmhouse and well-appointed 'The Cabin' offers a grand open floor plan with full kitchen amenities, two spacious downstairs bedrooms, a cozy attic bedroom, and one full/two half baths readily accommodating up to six guests.

The large covered porch and open garden patio lend the perfect venue for Pacific North West outdoor dining rain or shine. The property is abundant with wildlife specifically; deer, eagles, owls, turkey hawks, and red-headed woodpeckers.

Thank you for considering Summerset Hill as your holiday home in the San Juan Islands.

About Tetsie Wong

We cherish family, friends, & sharing adventures with both. There is nothing we like more than whipping up delicious fresh foods for an evening of conversation & laughter. We enjoy the natural beauty of flora & fauna, sunsets & beaches, snow & springtime. Dividing our time between the Toronto area, Cottage country, & Orcas Island provides us the opportunity to partake in the activities we relish like boating, sailing, wake boarding, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, biking, flying, snowmobiling, snowboarding, skiing, & attempting to surf.

Travel and exploring new destinations, cultures, and culinary experiences are also on our list of priorities.

Serenity

  • 5 of 5

My Husband, Border Collies and I love this cabin so much that this was the second time we booked it and we have decided that we will come back annually.

The peaceful setting and the special touch that Tetsie provides at her cabin makes us feel like it’s our second home! Small fenced front yard is perfect for our dogs where they love to deer watch daily. The kitchen has everything you need should you decide to cook your meals. We were very comfortable with the furniture inside as well as outside. I ate breakfast on the front porch every morning and read in the afternoon in the patio area. It is a wonderful place to reconnect with the family and decompress from the city life.

Many thanks to Tetsie and Ian!

Lovely home, grounds and host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend with our dog, our nanny and 2 kids under 2.5. To say we are a zoo when we travel is an understatement! The house was perfect for our long weekend - big enough to give everyone privacy and had everything you could need to cook great meals - and even bath toys for the kids. Tetsie has really thought of everything to make her guests comfortable. The house was in great condition and spotless - which can be difficult for a log cabin! The beds downstairs are comfortable. The beds upstairs are a bit soft and we found good for kids but not great for adults with bad backs. The television uses WiFi for Pandora and Netflix and the connection was spotty so not entirely reliable. But we weren’t there for the television so that wasn’t a problem for us! The yard was beautiful, manicured and the kids and dog loved running all over the property. Don’t hesitate to stay here to enjoy Orcas Island!

Charming rustic getaway on rural Orcas Island

  • 5 of 5

This tastefully decorated cabin was the perfect size & configuration for our family during our recent 4-day Thanksgiving holiday. The 2 spacious downstairs bedrooms comfortably accommodated our 2 adult couples & the under eave upstairs room with 3 twin beds & a cozy alcove with table & chairs delighted the school aged girls. Each bedroom has, at least, a 2-piece bathroom (toilet & sink), including upstairs. The one full bath downstairs was shared by all.

Since I would be cooking Thanksgiving dinner here, it was important that the kitchen be fully equipped &, except for a few items, it was. The large refrigerator held all of the perishables & there were some empty shelves & drawers to stash my stuff so as not to get it mixed up with what was already there. I appreciated that the stove was gas & the oven full size. There was also a largish table & a long island that served as spacious prep & serving areas. The table comfortably fit the 6 of us. We could not, however, get the dishwasher to work properly (it left everything covered in grease with the soap only partially dissolved) & had to wash everything by hand. There was no garbage disposal (probably due to being on a septic system), which was no big deal. I noticed the chef's knives were dull, also not a big deal since I always bring mine with me. Otherwise the kitchen was well stocked with quality dishes, glassware, cutlery, utensils, pots & pans, & several spices.

Our dog even appreciated the thoughtful touches of dog beds in each of the downstairs bedrooms, non-slip stainless steel food & water bowls, treats, & even a tennis ball. There were plenty of nice fluffy towels for all the guests &, my favorite touch, boxes of Kleenex in all the bathrooms!

The flat screen TV in the living area, openly adjacent to the kitchen, provided access to Pandora, Netflix, & You Tube. We probably would have stayed another night if we had been able to watch the Apple Cup on Saturday, but made it home just in time to see it anyway. (Go Huskies!) Since we have a tradition of watching certain movies over Thanksgiving, & there was no DVD player, we had to bring & connect our own - again, no biggie. The furnished front porch made for enjoyable deer watching. It can get a bit noisy from the traffic leaving the ferry terminal, but the inside of the cabin is well sound proofed. Looking forward to returning, perhaps in the late spring, to participate in goat yoga, farm tours, & other island activities. Great hospitality!

Great house. Quiet property.

  • 5 of 5

The house is as described on a very pretty and quiet setting close to the ferry and to East Sound. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. Even returned by mail an item we left behind.

The kitchen is very well stocked - perfect for cooking family meals. The wifi signal was good for smart phone apps, but inconsistent on TV apps. We weren't too interested in watching TV, so this wasn't an issue for us. Overall, a lovely stay.

very cozy and comfortable cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is well maintained and cared for cabin located close to the Turtleback Mountain trails. It is also very close to the ferry. 10 minutes to Eastsound and a couple hundred feet back from the road so traffic noise is modest. The front porch is a great place to lounge and the inside of the cabin is very cozy. Tetsie is very helpful - we were getting in late so she had the fire going and lights on for us and we felt very welcomed.

Constitution offers hiking trails around the pristine Mountain Lake, along the Cascade Creek including Rustic & Cascade Waterfalls, and to the Summit providing on a clear day a panoramic 360 degree view from British Columbia to Mt. Baker to Mt. Rainier encompassing the glistening waters and emerald green islands of the archipelago below. There are many opportunities to sight the two resident pods of Orca Whales from several venues of guided tours by boat or kayak. The island is an artistic haven for pottery, photography, paintings, sculptures, woven textiles, & jewelry. Seasonal Farm to Market dining abounds in each of the hamlets prized restaurants and bakeries or take it to go for a picnic while exploring the gem of the San Juans.
