The Neighborhood
In addition to the extraordinary beauty and serenity of Nature,so inspiring to us all, the incredible good weather in Deer Harbor is one of the main reasons for living here. Deer Harbor on beautiful Orcas Island is located in the 'Rain Shadow' area of the Great Pacific Northwest enjoying only about 25 inches of rain and over 260 sunny days annually. This means that we can enjoy the great outdoors all year long, hiking, biking, sailing, fishing, etc. There have been documented over 80 species of birds frequenting our extremely vibrant freshwater marsh. There are a variety of environmental programs in progress. We work with scientists, students, and Native Americans on our restoration efforts. Our property is the site of the first white European settler on Orcas Island, Louis Cayou, who married into the Samish Nation in the mid-1800s. We are working with the Samish descendants of Cayou in our restoration efforts, and hope to have their annual Canoe Journey with about 60 canoes stop here in the future.

To get to Orcas Island, most folks take the ferry from Anacortes, or seaplane in to Deer Harbor. A car is recommended to get around this 57 sq. mi. island, and rental cars are available on Orcas Island. Orcas is quite hilly, yet many, many people really enjoy bicycling here.

The Deer Harbor area of Orcas Island enjoys some of the nicest weather these "banana belt" San Juan Islands offer---lots of sun and little rainfall! This "rain shadow" effect makes for exceptional "off-season" visits here usually with delightful weather. Sunny Deer Harbor is a hub of San Juan Islands marine activity, with fishing, whale-watching for Orca and Minke whales, sea kayaking, boat rentals and sailing charters available, as well as moorage facilities for your own boat. Grandma and Grandpa's Getaway, newly ready for guests is perfect for a romantic getaway, a peaceful escape, or an any time of the year getaway you may be planning. Your perfect Orcas Island "secret" getaway awaits! Reserve your dates now!

Accès des voyageurs

Our guests are able to walk around and explore our entire 140 acres, picking berries and fruit (in season) from the myriad of trees all over our land. The playset and outdoor campfire are just 50+ feet away from your deck.

This was an incredible, magical, romantic getaway for us. We brought our son, and he loved climbing on the playset and exploring the property. Everything worked really well—gorgeous evening watching the sunset on the back deck. Can't wait to come back!

Hi, Eric and Joyce, Thanks again for choosing our Getaway for your Orcas Island adventures. Sorry about the pathway lighting having too many bulbs blown out by the wind vibration I think. We have changed all the bulbs, and now guests should have no trouble find the path. Thanks for your comments!

Bob and Meg were very friendly and kind! The view from the small deck in front of the room was beautiful, and had a nice table for eating breakfast. The kitchen was well-stocked. Meg even allowed us to check out a bit later than posted, since there was no one else staying that night! On the downside, we found the farm itself to be underwhelming, with some junked cars etc on the property. However, it was a good spot for exploring the island.

Though we didn't meet Bob, Meg was sweet as could be. She had a list of events on the island and all the restaurants and shops. We appreciated all of her tips for navigating the island and taking advantage of all it has to offer. Their home is situated on some lovely land, and we very much enjoyed our time here!

We are Bob and Meg Connor, the owners of the Gnome House, Maggie’s Manor, Maggie's Getaway and an awe-inspiring 140 acre paradise on Orcas Island, in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. We consider ourselves blessed to have been able to live in beautiful, sunny Deer Harbor on Orcas Island, for 39 years so far, and have raised our three sons in this island paradise.
Here is our story: In 1974, just before the first of our three sons was born, we chose to change our life dramatically. We were living in an apartment house, with a postage stamp lawn, involved in numerous businesses taking our energies; it became our #1 goal to change our lifestyle to be more compatible with our family values. We both wanted our children to grow up in an environment similar to Bob’s childhood in Poulsbo, Washington, reveling in and thriving because of a rural, simple, old-fashioned, family-oriented lifestyle. All three of our boys reveled in the rural island life, with endless outdoor creative adventures, sports, and just good “clean” fun all of the time. To this day, they love the outdoors, enjoying hiking, skiing, camping, mountain climbing, etc. The Orcas Island School was and continues to be a very good one, preparing students well for college. During their school years, all three of our sons were very active in all sorts of activities, especially sports. Bob was baseball coach for 15+ years, and both of us attending every game that our boys were in, either coaching, score-keeping, or cheering our voices hoarse. Our sons still love to visit Orcas Island often, and are now sharing their childhood lifestyle with their own families. We have an 11 year old grand-daughter, a 7 year old grandson, a 6 year old grand-daughter and grand baby #4, a grand-daughter arrived on May 18th, 2012. How thankful we are that all 3 of our sons, their wives, and their children all live in the Pacific Northwest, just a couple of hours from us!

It is true that the Puget Sound area is known for its rainfall, but Bob knew about the areas with less rain and more sunshine. After searching for our perfect property in the Pacific Northwest, we discovered the wonderful San Juan Islands, located in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains. We sold all of our Seattle businesses, bought 150 acres, and promptly moved to an island. This was over 39 years ago, and our delight in our property is stronger than ever. We love everything about it. We know that still today, there are few who comprehend the enormous ecological value and the boundless diverse beauty of the jewel that we steward.

We have been renting our vacation rental houses since the early 1990s, loving that we can share our beautiful and treasured property with so many other wonderful guests, now friends whom we love to see on their repeat visits, and new guests soon to become friends, when they make their first visit to Orcas Island.
