Paradise on Orcas Island
This French country house was truly a dream experience. Our party enjoyed every aspect from the incomparable setting to the exquisite furnishings and over the top kitchen. Fresh herbs growing in the herb gardens and player piano reverberating through dining and living room areas. Caretaker most attentive and owner a delight. ”
A Magical Stay
Our week at Cottage Knoll was truly magical. The home is gorgeous, beautifully designed and offers every amenity. The views are simply astounding! We went whale watching, took the ferry to Friday Harbor, hiked great nature trails in Moran State Park, and loved exploring Orcas Island's charming restaurants and boutiques. A great home, great location and a great time for all! Thank you. Melanie Conner”
The Cottage Knoll Estate was so wonderful!!! The veiws were amazing, the furnishings were so elegant. We felt like royalty! The grounds, with the Secret Garden, were fun to explore. In the evenings we would watch the sunset with a fire going in the outdoor conservatory. Loretta, the owner, was very accomodating and helpful. I wish I could return regularly to recharge my battery. It is so peaceful there. ”
