Taryn's Wreckreation Guide: Orcas Island's Magical Forest House

June 6, 2017

The San Juan Islands provide a magical getaway right in our own backyard, but Orcas Island's Forest House may very well be the most enchanting home in the county. Think Swiss Family Robinson meets The Hobbit, and that's exactly where this fairytale property will transport you. Offering views of the mountains and the water tucked cozily between the trees, you'll come home feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and rested. 



Formerly referred to as the 'Hobbit House', designed and constructed by SunRay Kelley in Eastsound, the home is completely enveloped by nature and the woodworking is absolutely breathtaking throughout. Complete with reading nooks, sprawling decks, towers and a Japanese soaking tub, Forest House offers the ultimate retreat from the real world. 


If you're looking to disappear into the quiet of the forest for a few days, put this vacation rental on your must-visit list. 


I've certainly stumbled upon my next local getaway and can't wait to experience the Forest House on Orcas Island! Mentally, I have already packed my bags and hopped on a scenic flight with San Juan Airlines


Happy Adventuring,


Taryn Daly
