Description
The Lodge on Orcas Island is more than a hostel but different than a B & B.We call it a European Style Guest House.We offer 7 private rooms and 1 suite. The 7 rooms share 3 common baths, the kitchen and living More areas. The suite has a private bath and sitting area. Although we do not serve food many of our guests appreciate having use of our fully equipped kitchen to cook for themselves.The Lodge is available for rent by the room or you may arrange to have exclusive use of the entire property.A private room/shared bath is $89.The suite is $149.Exclusive use of the entire property is $995.Prices quoted are nightly + 10.1% sales and lodging tax.Unless you opt for exclusive use of the property you can look forward to mingling and getting acquainted with other travelers from around the world. At the Lodge we do not care for the sound of blaring electronics so we are a television free zone.Rather, the sounds you will hear are the trickling of water, bird song, the breeze whispering through the trees, nocturnes by Chopin, ballads by Diana Krall.Our aesthetic is informed by the American Arts and Crafts movement. Though not a museum, you may notice many craftsman inspired touches throughout the house and adjoining property.We emphasize cleanliness. Allergy sufferers and those who are chemically sensitive will appreciate that we use only unscented soaps and cleansers for the laundry and household. The house always smells fresh, natural and clean.In the baths we provide shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and toothpaste. Brands currently featured are Dr. Bronners or Trader Joe's.The Lodge is recognized by Washington State as a Backyard Wildlife Sanctuary. Nature lovers will enjoy seeing the birds that flock to our feeders and baths and basking in their soothing song.If it is respite you are seeking, you've come to the right place. Put your ambitions aside and head for one of the several Pawleys Island rope hammocks hanging beneath the Western Red Cedars. Nothing spells relief like sinking into the quilt lined hammock and being lulled into a deep and restful sleep unlike anything you've ever experienced.Book any 2 nights between Sunday and Thursday and get the 3rd night free. Our way of appreciating your midweek business. :) Less

Wow - what a place. It feels not like a hotel, but truly like a home! And even better: it is kept up by a super committed, dedicated and friendly owner...
David greeted us nicely upon arrival and showed us around his house and garden.
We were taken by surprise how charming David

Cross between a hostel and bed and breakfast. The host was friendly and informative.

Shared kitchen and bath and shared experiences. Some families grilled outside. Kitchen well stocked with dishes and glassware.

Stayed in the double bunk room. It was basic but comfortable. We'd

David is a cordial host and is rather comical. The problem with this "lodge" is that it has little privacy and is noisy, regardless of the "quiet after 10 PM". The house has a few bedrooms which I was told share one bathroom between 2 rooms which sounded reasonable for a middle

Response from lodgeonorcasisland, Owner at The Lodge on Orcas Island
Responded 16 Aug 2016
I host 1,500 guest nights per year essentially by myself. If you look at my 250 reviews on Airbnb you’ll find nothing but happy people. I take very seriously and work very hard to assure the comfort and satisfaction of my guest. I employ an overnight innkeeper who’s job it is to prevent incidents like the one Sharonmmmmmmm(Alison?) is referring to. You are only as strong as your weakest link. Needless to say, he is no longer in my employ. Rob and his wife were locked out and had to sleep in the living room. When I found out I was horrified. I comped their room and ferry fare. I wrote them a check for $530.00. If you go to https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/449579?s=z8bAGayb and read the Rob’s review you can find out how they felt about it. If you’d like a second opinion by a guest who was there that night I will refer you to https://www.airbnb.com/users/reviews/232170. Look for Lisa Barnecut. On Orcas Island we refer to this time as “The 90 days of August”. It is fever pitch. Every single bed is sold for the entire month. We had a lot of plates spinning in the air and sadly, I lost control. I apologize. Had Sharonmmmmmmm brought this to my attention when she was here, she would have received the same consideration as Rob. The incidents that don’t kill us make us stronger. I am reassessing the direction I want to take The Lodge going forward. Sincerely, David S Page

We stayed at The Lodge with friends for a wedding and this place is beautiful. It's about 7 miles inland, private and quiet. Looking at the outside you'd be surprised how nice the inside is. The rooms are nice, although the beds are not so comfy. Pretty firm mattresses. But the l

Can you tell me the closest airport to Overleaf Lodge and then how far to drive from there? Also, what is the best room you offer for great views from the balcony? Thanks, Cindy
Hey Cindy this is Dave Page, owner and operator of The Lodge on Orcas Island in the evergreen state of Washington. Somehow this inquiry got to my inbox. So, I've never heard of the Overleaf Lodge but it sounds like a nice place. Balls back in your court. Cheers and good luck!

"The executive suite is the only en-suite room good for a family or couple desiring privacy. Total of 8 rooms."
"The suite is large and luxurious, while the queen rooms are very comfy and great for budget travel."
"The place is small and all the rooms looked great. I don't think you can go wrong here."
"We had the room upstairs with the private bathroom, which was fantastic."
"All the rooms are excellent."
