Recently I went on a garden tour on Orcas Island in Washington. I came across the most magical cottage that overlooked an island cove. It was perfection. I couldn’t wait to show the picture to my readers. The owner opened all the doors of the sweet cottages so everyone could get a glimpse. What we all saw was an amazing attention to detail. The Orcas Island Cottage and Garden Tour allows you to see a little bit of the magic I found.
“Everyone can identify with a fragrant garden, the beauty of sunset, with the quiet of nature, with a warm and cozy cottage.” – Thomas Kincade
Each cottage had its own set of characteristics, it almost seemed as if you were on a movie set. You had to drive through the forest quite a long way before you reached the cliff. Above a private cove, the cottages were nestled with the sweetest gardens. It’s time you see for yourself.
Here’s the Orcas Island Cottage and Garden Tour:
1) An adorable garden shed.
Here’s where they store all the garden tools. The vegetable garden is right next door.
2) Delphinium garden.
If you’ve never seen Delphiniums – you’ve been missing out. They are stunning flowers as you can see. You can buy seeds here.
3) The children’s cottage.
Here’s where the kids live their dreams out.
Cute porch decor…
Here’s the playroom:
A little side peek into where the bunk beds are…
Look how fun these bunk beds are…
4) The guest cottage.
Now we’re ready to take a look at the Racketty Packetty House…
Look at these sweet little birds… You can get your own bird garden stake here.
5) Goose Corner.
It’s time to stop by and see this adorable cottage. It just so happens I have a dog who’s nickname is Goose, so I especially love this one.
Take some time to relax…
6) The main cottage.
Now we’re off to the main residence.
Can it get any sweeter than this? Look at that stunning fireplace!
Now we’re off to the bedroom…
Look at this gorgeous hand painted bench! I love the plaid teddy bear.
Wouldn’t a beautiful desk like this be perfect?
7) The patio.
It’s time to head out to the porch…
A whimsical wired horse stands guard.
This gate down to the beach is a work of art.
8) The gardens.
You can’t go wrong with a wall of flowers…
9) Heart of the home.
These cottages and gardens were made with love.
We’ve reached the end of Orcas Island Cottage and Garden Tour.
I hope you enjoyed it. Thanks for stopping by.
