At the far northern shore of Orcas Island it’s possible to watch the sun rise and set from the same spot. Imagine then, if you will, experiencing nature’s dawn and dusk light show while being soothed by the warm water and soothing jets of a spacious Jacuzzi hot tub. At North Shore Cottage’s Eagle’s Nest unit, this is your reality, not your imagination running wild.

Super luxurious in every sense of the word, North Shore Cottages offers true world-class pampering. Rated four kisses (highest rating) in "Best Places to Kiss in the Northwest" romantic travel guide, North Shore offers three very private, very cozy-comfy cottages.

Along with a hot tub with the to-die-for view across President Channel to Sucia Island, the Eagle’s Nest features gas-flame fireplace (operated by remote), antique wicker furniture, and full kitchen. The unit’s eagle theme manifests itself in two stunning stain glass panels in the cedar-lined bathroom. And oh, that bathroom—enjoy the two-person Jacuzzi shower or a steam bath, all while relaxing to music provided by the wall-mounted CD player.

Equally as grand are the Orca Watch and Heron Cove cottages. Orca Watch boasts a nautical theme and features dark hardwood throughout, a bow-shaped bay window enclosing a large captain’s table, and porthole windows along the walls. Full-kitchen, private hot tub and wood stove are also included. A cylindrical two-story cottage, Heron Cove is the newest unit at North Shore and, in the opinion of the owners, the most exquisite. Stained glass, metal sculpture work and ceramic mosaic are just some of the details adorning this haven of tranquility. Two decks and an eight-person Marquis Spa guarantee views and relaxation. And of course, the full kitchen is gourmet-appointed.

All guests at North Shore Cottages are free to enjoy the free-standing Sleepy Otter Sauna as well as the water and island views from the bluff.

Truly a marvel, North Shore Cottages is that perfect blend of manmade luxury and natural beauty. You’ll want to come back again and again.
