Beautiful, fun, and relaxed hostel experience on Orcas Island! We are located right in the middle of the island just outside of Eastsound, our quaint little town. This is a perfect launching spot for what the island has to offer. We have a hot tub and sauna for you to enjoy when you get back from the days adventure.
Golden Tree Hostel is in the landmark Donohue House (1890), listed on the National Historic Registry. The house has both architectural and cultural significance. Michael Donohue built the house seven years after his arrival on Orcas Island. The dwelling was constructed using an Upright-and-Wing building form, a late example of the Greek Revival style. Mr. Donohue used his skills to erect many other buildings on the island, including the Emmanuel Episcopal Church (1885), also listed on the Registry. The house sits on the last remaining part of a 180 acre homestead. The farm was a leading supplier of apples and milk from the island. Some of the original orchard is still present on this and neighboring properties and is still producing delicious apples. The Donohues’ only surviving son, Harry, lived in the house with his wife Jean Donohue (Gibson) until their respective passings in 1947 and 1958. The house then passed through many hands before arriving in ours. We spent over two years renovating every building on the property, to create a unique hostel experience. Taking our combined years as both builders and artists, we transformed a tired building into a vibrant home. The house is located just a 10 minute stroll to both Eastsound, the commercial center of the island, and North Beach, a great place to watch a summer sunset, have a picnic or drop some kayaks in the water. We built a sauna and put in a hot tub to help you relax after a day of hiking or biking around the island. You can shoot a game of pool with a fellow traveler, or find a quiet spot on one of the porches. We hope to have created a spot where travelers can meet and connect with each other and with local residents. There’s a whole lot to do on the property and even more to do around the island. We look forward to having you!
It's all built for you. The Golden Tree Hostel is made with a lot of love so that you can feel right at home. Fire pit, hot tub, sauna, pool table, darts, shuffle board, garden and more is all located in the beautiful back yard - whatever your fancy it's here!
