ROMANTIC WATERFRONT VACATION RENTAL GUEST COTTAGE ON ORCAS ISLAND. HOT TUB, TOO! When you're looking for a romantic getaway with that special someone, Orcas Island's Paris Cottage may be just what you envision. This waterfront vacation rental home will delight your senses with its interior warmth and beautiful natural setting. It features southwest views through a wall of windows in the living room and a private sand and gravel beach just across the street. ( If you bring a kayak, the beach is a great launching site.) The surrounding scenery is mesmerizing in all seasons. No doubt you will spot the eagle that makes his home in a nearby tree as he awaits the salmon that enter the creek running into the bay. Canadian geese will entertain you as they flock in 2 1/2 acres of nearby farmland and fields, and you might bring a carrot for the neighbor's horses who graze next door. But the bird life, sailboat and ferry traffic, vistas over Lopez Island and Cattle Point, sunsets reflecting off the Olympic Mountains are just the beginning of the pleasure you'll find staying at Paris Cottage. Inside, you'll relish the special warmth of cozy spaces. There are fine linens on an antique bed and comfortable down-filled seating. The dining room is like a greenhouse, surrounded by windows overlooking the countryside. Through a narrow doorway you'll find the bathroom offering a small shower and Italian sink along with bamboo towels. There's a flat screen HD/TV with satellite reception and a DVD. French doors lead outside where you'll relax in a screened alcove shaded with parasols, or on a deck with a double chaise and privacy screen. At day's end you can soak away the cares of elsewhere in the hot tub. Paris, France is known as the "City of Light" - the "Island of Starlight" is Paris Cottage on beautiful Orcas Island. Paris Cottage is in the quiet hamlet of Olga, a 20 minutes drive from Eastsound Village and a 45 minute drive from the ferry dock. You'll pass through spectacular Moran State Park on the way, where you will likely want to return for hiking and swimming. Due to its size and styling, this cottage is not suitable for children; however, one very small dog will be considered on an exception basis.
