Our Story

About Sleeping Sea

In the beginning of 2003 Shana purchased the Beach House to "get away" from the daily grind of farm life while her children would continue to operate Once in a Blue Moon Farm. The Beach House is an escape, immersed in the salty ocean air, a place where the sounds of breaking waves and tranquil waterfront environment lull you to sleep. It became the Sleeping Sea. It is the seaside at it's best and it is pure bliss. Turns out Shana is not quite ready to retire full time as she loves her farm animals too much to say goodbye just yet. Sleeping Sea became a vacation rental for others to enjoy the beauty of Orcas Island on the beach. Now in it's 17th year it's still doing just that and more. Come and visit!
