Loved that this property was clean and right on the waterfront. High tide came right up under the deck so you could hear the waves gently lapping. Close to amenities and marina.

It’s almost like “walking aboard” at the Orca Lodge! The quirky boat house is a welcoming spot right on the water. It feels like a much-loved family cottage. We were traveling with children and they loved the ladder and loft. Waking up to the ocean truly under the deck was just spectacular.
