At this retreat on Orcas Island, guests can explore shoreline, wetland, and forest by foot, kayak, or rowboat. Afterward, enjoy soaking in the waterfront hot tub, or simply relax in comfort in the cabin or outside on the 40-foot deck mesmerized by the wide-open view of evergreen islands that seem to float upon the sea.

The cabin is a haven for birders and marine life spotters.

Our goal is to provide you with whatever you need during your stay, but to leave you in the seclusion and peace of your own cabin.

Hiking trails link Spring Bay’s dozens of wooded acres to adjacent Obstruction Pass State Park, creating a 5-mile system of trails right outside your front door.

We have preserved these acres so they may be enjoyed by naturalists and those who need the solace of seclusion. We have private trails throughout the property and connected to adjacent Obstruction State Park.

We provide maps, field guides, and binoculars to borrow. Guests may also arrange for an optional kayak tour. Beginners are welcome, and no experience is necessary.

The pocket bedroom is a hideaway, private room with a twin bed, plenty of good reading light, and windows opening to the northwest-whimsy garden. It is ideal for a child who goes to bed a bit early or for someone who enjoys napping during the day.

The wood stove is glass-front so you can enjoy the sight of the fire as it heats the room. Your first fire is built and ready for you to light. Wood and kindling provided during your stay.

Spring Bay Cabin is an ideal location for an elopement. Your hosts are a wedding officiant and a guitarist. Couples can have a quiet beach ceremony, or even tie the knot on the water in side-by-side kayaks.
