We booked this room at the last minute and Jennifer, the owner was very friendly and helpful- she provided very helpful tips that saved us time and money on our trip. The house was amazingly clean and beautiful with an amazing view, fireplace and hot tub! We had everything we needed and will definitely come back as this was one of the nicest and most amazing vacation properties we have ever stayed at! Would definitely recommend without hesitation!!! What an amazing Valentines Day weekend! Thanks so much Jennifer!!!

I needed a quiet, private house to get started on a novel I'm writing, and I chose to return to Sunset House, where my husband and I had stayed on a previous visit. The draw here is the water - and on this trip, glorious Canadian snow-covered mountains - view. It's an incredibly private setting, and the majority of rooms overlook the water.

Travelling alone on this trip, I felt completely safe at Sunset House. It's very comfortable, and because of the purpose of this trip, I only left the house a few times. I like its proximity to the shops in Eastsound, and its access to Moran State Park, where I like to hike.

I needed the Golf Channel on the satellite TV for a work-related project, and was dismayed when I arrived to find it missing. After I explained my problem to Jennifer, who is lovely to deal with from beginning to end, she was able to call the provider and get the channel added to her lineup in time for me. I used to own a vacation rental home in Palm Desert, CA, and, trust me, that is service above and beyond.

Now, if you're looking for a house with all the bells and whistles like a garbage disposal, gas BBQ, walk-in shower, etc., Sunset House is not for you. It is rustic, and perhaps could use some refreshment on things like sheets and towels, and I could have used a salad spinner that works. But the small touches, such as lovely hand lotions, excellent recommendations from Jennifer on where to shop, great outdoor furniture, good WiFi service, and clean windows more than make up for a couple of the things I didn't care for.

As for my writing project, looking back now I feel that there is some "magic" to Sunset House. It's an inspirational setting, and I value my week there. Thank you, Jennifer, and Sunset House!

This is the best place to stay on Orcas Islad. The owner Jennifer shared everything about the island as though she was our personal tour guide. We stayed in the family original home right on the bay, the view was amazing and a very comfortable home. The location is very close to everything and a private setting. We will be back.....

We truly endeavor to provide comfortable charm surrounded by the beautiful natural surroundings, including amazing water and island views, and our private shell beach. It was our pleasure to provide you tips on enjoying all that Orcas Island has to offer. Please come back soon...there is so much more to explore and experience!

My wife and I have stayed in the Heather cabin several times now, and we absolutely love our time at cabins on the point. I asked my wife to marry me outside the cabin, and we returned again for a baby-moon before our son was born. This place holds a special place in our heart. The experience is enhanced by the host Jennifer. She is a lovely lady who always strives to make your visit special.

We are already planning another visit for next year. I highly recommend the cabins on the point for a peaceful and romantic getaway.

We stayed at the Westsound House, sometimes referred to as the main house. It's only steps to the kayaks and the views are great from the covered deck, the living room, or the dining room. Turtleback Mountain Preserve, with its miles of hiking trails, is a mere few hundred yards from the house. We could not have been more pleased with the comfort of the house or with Jennifer's helpfulness or the accuracy of her recommendations, mostly for restaurants.

This is an ideal spot for people who are active or not so active. One of our party ran every day on the hiking trails, rode a bike all over Orcas Island and once took the ferry to Lopez to ride there, and kayaked most days. The other was more housebound, but enjoyed the views and photographing the wildlife that could be seen from the house, from yard bunnies and deer to harbor seals, great blue herons, and other waterfowl.

We can't wait to go back.
