We stayed for 3 nights. My son adored the Gnome alcove. The playground over looks the harbor and wonderful view of the water.
Great tasting local coffee was provided as well as cozy robes to wear out to the hot tub. You can watch movies that are provide or rent from the local country corner market outside of East sound.We will definitely be back for more gnome house fun.

In the past decade I have stayed at the Gnome house many times. It is like a European Chalet in that it is quaint, beautifully made, quiet, and surrounded by natural beauty. The owners are sweet as can be and I felt completely at home. Orcas Island is one of the most beautiful places on earth and this is one of the best ways to see it.

My family and I have stayed numerous times at both of the Connor's vacation rentals; the Gnome House and Maggie's Mannor. The Gnome House is truly a treasure, nestled into one of the most pristine and relaxing settings in the country. The natural beauty that surrounds this vacation rental is incomparable and whether you take a stroll through the grounds, a soak in the hot tub under the stars, or sit in a comfortable chair and look out over the beautiful harbor, all of your stress will melt away. And all of this beauty is second only to the beauty and craftsmanship that went into constructing the Gnome House. From the cozy sleigh-bed, to the beautiful wooden staircase, no detail is overlooked. It is a wonderful place to stay whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or a family vacation. The owners of this vacation rental are amazing people who go to great lengths to ensure that your stay is truly memorable. They love their island and will bend over backward to make sure that you experience everything it has to offer. I can't say enough about the Gnome House; its location, amenities, and hosts are simply amazing!

I have stayed at both of the Connors' rentals-- the Gnome House and Maggies mannor, and they are amazing! Tucked away under the trees, a stone's throw from Deer Harbor Marina, both offer hottubs, firplaces, kitchens, and barbeques, so that each day you can make the most of being in one of the most beautiful and pristine environments in the World. The Connors are friendly, hospitable, and informative-- the best hosts anyone can ask for. I can't say enough about them, or about the Gnome House-- you have to experience it to believe it!
