West Beach Resort – Orcas Island

From cabins to glamping, West Beach Resort has it all. Dog friendly cabins are available too. Book early as these cabins fill up. The cabins are rustic, but that’s part of the charm. They are well stocked and impeccably clean. I sound like a commercial, but truly, this place is magical. Watch seals and puffins dive in the surf right in front of you. The store has a great variety including beer on tap. You are only a few minutes from Eastsound, so if they don’t have it, it’s just a short drive to the grocery store. The Cabins have wood stoves and fire rings, so bring wood, or you can purchase some at the store. Your rental comes with a free bundle including a fire starter, matches and kindling.

Logistics – Yes, there is a road running in front of the cabins on the water. This is just a little gravel lane to get to the cabins. There is parking for one car at the cabin. Cabins sit closely together, but this doesn’t take away from their charm and the feel of privacy. Many of the cabins have futons for extra sleeping space. The wifi in my experience has been fantastic. There are no TVs in most of the cabins. RV sites sit higher above the cabin area with very little view of the water. It’s pretty easy to walk to the water and store, so I don’t think it’s much of a problem. The staff is really great and helpful. Kitchens are stocked, a little on the primitive side, but adequate. If you need anything, chances are they have it. If I was traveling with a larger group, I would throw in paper plates and additional silverware. I would definitely bring extra firewood. Yes, you can see Canada from here!
