Bayside Cottages

Vacation homes on Orcas Island. Family owned and operated since 1981.

The Bayside Cottages Family


Bayside Cottages has welcomed guests to Orcas Island for 30+ years.

Jim & Betsy moved to the island in 1975. They designed and built many of the vacation cottages themselves. Their daughter, Liz, grew up on the property.

Today Liz and her husband, Herman, have returned to help run the business and raise their daughter on Orcas.

We’re lucky to wake up every day in such a beautiful place. It's a joy to see how much our guests love it here, too.

Betsy is also a painter. Check out the work of this Orcas Island artist here, and contact Betsy if you'd like to schedule a studio tour.
