Description from owner


WELCOME to FOREST HOUSE on ORCAS ISLAND (formerly known as the " Hobbit House")


NO PETS, NO CANDLES and NO SMOKING in or near house.

CHECK IN time is 3 pm or after & CHECK OUT time is 11am.

Check JUNK box for is sometimes there.

The house was featured on King 5 evening news May 5, 2016

Google king 5 dot com/video/entertainment/television/programs/evening/orcas-islands-hobbit-house-brings-fairytales-to-life

Also the house is filmed for 15 Treehouse Masters Season 11 Episode 11 with Pete Nelson and Sunray Kelley

ORCAS ISLAND is one of the most beautiful islands to visit in Washington State!

FOREST HOUSE is very PEACEFUL, nestled in the TREES with views of the WATER. The house is custom built with much tender loving care by Sunray Kelly, an alternative northwest designer/builder. There is always something to improve on, so tons of love is put into it between travelers. I truly hope you enjoy yourself thoroughly!!!!!!

It has many unique features like a SUNKEN round soaking TUB, cathedral like windows and doors,6,10 &12 sided rooms with curved WOOD walls throughout. There are 3 DECKS with many different places to sit and contemplate!

You enter into a 12 sided LIVING ROOM with lots of windows, doors & views of the water, trees and sky. Walk down the hallway to the TOILET room, TUB room and a galley KITCHEN which was built by FAERIES themselves...well not exactly but almost! The counter tops are live edge spalted Alder and Cherry wood. There is a Copper sink, range, refrigerator and all the kitchen necessities to cook a meal. You walk out the kitchen door onto a huge DECK which has beautiful views, BBQ and the MAIN BEDROOM POD. It is the main BED, QUEEN size.

Walk to the next DECK to the two story TOWER which has a COZY COUCH for nesting, reading, contemplating on the second floor. Or if there are 3 people or two singles it is the second bedroom with a DOUBLE bed.

I highly recommend .....

I am so happy to be here and love sharing this beauty with others.

ORCAS ISLAND is abundant with pottery shops, artisan shops, music in the park, theater, kayaking, hiking, whale watching, boating, fishing, swimming and water all around....Its the best island and the most magical!!!!

Enjoy hiking at Moran State Park, which has over 35 miles of trails. Also the south entrance of Turtleback mountain has stunning views. Rent or launch your kayak or canoe from beaches or the lakes, swim in the three amazing lakes. EASTSOUND has many great restaurants, unique shops, outdoor concerts in the summer, farmers market and an excellent performing arts center.

Check out the ORCAS ISLAND CHAMBER OF COMMERCE website for weekly happenings.

Here is what people have been saying about their time at the house. It says it all:

"Being at a place like this makes you feel alive! I always wanted to live in a “Swiss Family Robinson” home in the trees and this home is the closest I have come to it yet. Thank you for allowing us to share this interesting place! J & E

Getting around

I recommend having a car on the island. The Island is so beautiful, I encourage people to definitely go to Moran State Park. There is so much to see and experience or just rest at the house. Google Orcas island Wa Chamber of Commerce, you will find all the details.

Interaction with guest

I will send you details on the house once your booking is confirmed. I will need your travel contact number and relation and names of people in your party. Texting is best when you are on the island and there are certain areas on the island where there is no cell service. The house has internet and cell service. T-Moibile has the best cell coverage on the island. If you need to ask any questions prior please email me otherwise if time sensitive while on island please text me your questions. I am happy to help if can. Please check Orcas Island chamber of commerce for activities and details about the island.
