Orcas Island is the largest (57 square miles) and most mountainous island of all the San Juan Islands. Though it is the largest island the community has a comforting 'small town feel. There are numerous events throughout the summer including the Fourth of July parade, the Library Fair, and the Bite of Orcas; each offering much to see and enjoy. The island is shaped like a horseshoe, with a five-mile long fjord in the middle.
Only a fifteen-minute drive from Cedar Field is Moran State Park, a 5,252-acre state park with four lakes and the 2,409-foot Mt. Constitution, the highest point in the San Juans. Mt. Constitution is one of the most scenic 360-degree water views in the world, with visibility up to a hundred miles on clear days. There are over 30 miles of hiking and bicycling trails available. Cascade, Mountain, and Twin Lakes offer a plethora of boating, fishing, and swimming opportunities for everyone.
Wildlife viewing is available in numerous forms. On a daily basis bald eagles soar and deer browse at Cedar Field and whale watching tours are only a short drive away at Deer Harbor. Turtleback Mountain offers nearby hiking trails with spectacular views. Cedar Field in Crow Valley is a perfect location to access all the interests of Orcas and the nearby islands.

"Had a great time at Cedar Field. The place was perfect, very spacious and had everything we needed. It was also very private. The guests were very impressed. Had a blast on Orcas island. The wedding was perfect, weather was sunny, ambience was intimate and just beautiful. It was more than what we expected. Thanks for all your support, thinking of returning someday. Will surely recommend your place."

Hi Jesse, We had a wonderful stay at your vacation home. Thank you so much. It suited our needs perfectly for the weekend for our group of 10. We all very much enjoyed the island, the ultra-marathon event, and your home was so comfortable and well appointed. I hope you found everything in order as per your check-out instructions.
With regards, Sara on 1/14/10
P.S. Our group is already cooking-up ideas for a return trip to Orcas to explore more of your beautiful island.
We enjoyed our visit at Orcas Island and your lovely vacation home was a part of our great experience. We've already started thinking about our next visit. Thank you.

We enjoyed the house and our trip to Orcas Island! The house worked out well for our extended family (5 adults and 2 kids)...we enjoyed the decks, garden, horseshoes and wonderful views. Also, it was a treat to watch the pair of bald eagles each day. My husband and I did a short kayak trip with Shearwater and had a great experience. We ordered organic produce from John Stewart, Maple Rock Farm and all was awesome....a great treat for a family of mostly vegetarians. THANKS again for a wonderful vacation home!

"Thank you for the fantastic accommodations. The island is majestic, the house is lovely, and the location is beautiful. Between the house and the island itself, along with the sea kayaking, fishing, and sunset from Mt. Constitution, it was the perfect weekend - especially for an east coaster. Many Thanks!

"Everything was great at the house and worked well for our family of varied ages. You took care of all our our needs including cribs, gates, games, and best of all - two kitchens! I certainly appreciate everything you offered to us and thank you for such a good experience."
"This place is gorgeous (the photos on the web do not do it justice). The house
easily and comfortably fits 10 adults. It was clean, and the beds were
comfortable. I would highly recommend this place. A wonderful base from
which to explore the beautiful san juan islands!"
-Amanda Elson, Baltimore, MD
This place was awesome! I wanted a group of people to spend my 50th birthday with me and I wanted to be on Orcas Island. Cedarfield allowed people to have their own space as well as joining together for meals and food prepartion. The quiet serene setting allowed tons of relaxtation. I will definately rent this home again.
-Judy Shinn, The Dalles, OR
"I wanted to say thank you for a very nice visit to your house and Orcas Island. What a beautiful setting and we loved the island and the various activities. It was fun to hike on Mt. Constitution, visit the farmer's market on Saturday, go out on a whale watching boat, rent kayaks and paddle in the bay, and just eat and visit. We really appreciated the atmosphere of the island and friendliness of the people."
-Joy Zahl, Spokane, WA
"Our family all had a very nice time at the Cedar Field house. We
appreciated the spacious house large enough to accommodate a large family.
With 2 kitchens, and five bedrooms, we were all able to stay together
for a fun time. We definitely recommend this place for family
get-togethers." - Dave Chong

This was one wonderful end-of-summer vacation! We enjoyed biking on
Lopez - 35 miles - Yeah! Crabbing on Orcas, and just exploring the beauty of
the islands. We had great times around the campfire as well. The size of your
home was perfect for our group of 14. Thanks for the use of such a great
place and the part it played in making such a memorable vacation.
Again, your home is so wonderful and the location just perfect - thank you
for making it available! If we ever need a place to stay again on Orcas - I'll be
booking with you!

Today we are celebrating the birthday of one of our party and we can't
imagine a more beautiful spot to make merry.
You have taken care of all our needs, and we are grateful for all the services
provided. We have seen rabbits and deer, and enjoyed hiking on Mountain
Lake loop and up Mt. Constitution. It is an incredibly tranquil part of the
world, which will draw us back in years to come.
Thank you from all of us.

"Thanks for a great accommodation for our family. We loved exploring the
island and it was great to be able to stay all together in a beautiful location.
Your house is wonderful and I actually preferred that it was inland. We saw
some great wildlife.
We had a great time! It was the perfect getaway!
We would reccomend this home to others.
It's a fabulous place! Deer greeted us every day, and the place was spacious
enough that we could all gather - or not - as our mood dictated! And we
couldn't have asked for better weather.
All the best to you!
"We had a great time at the Cedar Field House! It was the perfect place for our wedding rehearsal dinner and a great place for family and friends to stay for our wedding. The guests loved staying there and enjoyed the beauty of the surrounding area. It was very family friendly and everyone had a wonderful time! Thank you Jesse for opening up your home to us and our family!
We will highly recommend your house to friends as a wonderful place to stay on Orcas Island.
Sincerely, Susan Mini (actually now it is Susan Ford! :-)"
"Everything at the house was great for our group. It was so nice to be able to spread out and have plenty of indoor and outdoor spaces to be alone, hang out in small groups, or all be together all at once."
We had a FANTASTIC time. Your house, location and surrounding property were amazing. The house itself held our group of 10 perfectly, we had enough room to sleep as well as to sit and connect as friends. The kitchen was fully equipped, so we were able to make huge family-style meals and everyone was able to just relax amongst the beautiful scenery.
We found the house to be a great fit for us, and the fact that it was well equipped with everything made our weekend flawless! The weather was beautiful for April (we were expected rainy skies) so we were able to sit outside and even make a great bonfire at night.
Thank you, Thank you, thank you! The Cedar Field House was the perfect setting for our mini-reunion and allowed us to not worry about the logistics, and just relax and re-connect as a group.
We definitely plan on coming back next year - in fact, everyone kept raving about the house and telling me that I HAD to get it again next year.
Most likely it will be the same time of year - late March or early April.
Thanks again for everything!
We had a wonderful time staying at the cedar field house. what a great spot!
We just got home from our great vacation! We had such a good time! Beautiful area, plenty of room, lots of privacy - - didn't disturb anyone with our laughing! The house accommodated all of us so nicely. Thanks so much!
PS Also - thanks for the info about crabbing. We caught enough to make a great crab salad!"
"We had a great time. The weather was perfect and the house is in a fantastic location, it felt like there was no one else around us. Definitely a great spot, we loved sitting out on the deck after the sun went behind the mountain. Thanks again."
"Jesse, We had a terrific time - the house turned out to be a great match for our needs -- ended up using all the bedrooms and being very comfortable. The deck is fabulous. Don't know if you did the work on that yourself, but it was great and a great relief that it was so child-friendly. Also appreciated the mowed field with volleyball and badminton - note that the volleyball got a workout and cover began to split along one seam -- cloth cover is great on hands but may not last. Did not use fire pit, as fire-danger was high. Weather cooperated on all but one day - that happened to be the day I elected to take a whale-watch cruise. No problem for me - enjoyed cruise regardless, and got me out of house. Everyone else was happy to have a day of inside stuff - thanks again for all the family-stuff there. The dogs absolutely loved being out there - spent most of their time on the deck or out on the grass around the yard -- absolutely terrific for family-dog combination -- very much appreciated! Thank you again for your help and for making this great place available! Tom"
"...the landscaping in front of the house is beautiful."
"...the kids liked running around outside and we enjoyed the quiet of the surroundings. The house was also in a very convenient location."
