I showed you the outside of the cabin that we stayed in for our 50th Anniversary get-away - now I'd like to show you the inside. It is a charming cabin in Olga, WA, on Orcas Island in the San Juan Islands, just off the coast from Bellingham.
We spent one afternoon on the beach - this is the view of the cabin from the wooden walkway to the beach. You can see the brand new metal roof on the house. When we arrived it was pouring rain and the sound on the roof was fabulous.
This is the view on a foggy morning (that turned into a sunny day) from the living room
The dining room had a lovely table, all set and ready for dinner. The vintage cabinet held lovely dishes and linens.
Nearby was an old typewriter - I remember learning to type on one of these in High School. It took brute force to pound those keys.
There is a bed in the living room - you can go to sleep looking at the stars and wake up to the sunshine - what a treat. Grampa Bear, Mrs. BrownDirt and Buddy E. loved the bed too
The curtains beside the bed in the living room were hung on branches - the perfect curtain rod.
One of the cupboards in the kitchen was the top of an old Hoosier cabinet - great for storing our food and some serving pieces. Everything was so cleverly arranged.
There were even mugs that match a set of lighthouse dishes that I have. We felt right at home drinking our hot tea in these mugs, while sitting on the deck looking at the Milky Way one clear evening.
In one end of the living room there were cast iron skillets hanging on an old chimney and a cabinet full of lovely crystal. Below this was a big counter/cabinet for storage.
Jackie - the owner of the cabin has spent a lot of time making sure the cabin is cozy and attractive. She is a thoughtful and very interesting person - we are glad we met her.
A pretty basket and some lavender. The cabin is so sweetly decorated - each piece makes you feel more at home.
A flying totem frog hangs above a window in the living room
Agates and stones gathered from the pebbly beach
And fresh roses from the deck greeted us when we arrived.
So many little touches - lots of things from the beach in the window sills. The entire front of the house is glass - looking out on the harbor and islands nearby.
There were wonderful paintings hung throughout the cabin.
And shelves of interesting items added to the fun of the cabin. It was the perfect spot to celebrate our 50th Anniversary.
Thank You so much Jackie, for a wonderful stay in your charming cabin.
