We stayed at the Sunset House in April for three nights, and then extended by a day because we loved it so much. The house was clean, had all the amenities we needed to be comfortable and BBQ looking at the absolutely fantastic view, and was incredibly quiet and private. Spent the evenings birding from the lawn and watching the local seal group hang out in the water. Great place for a quiet romantic getaway, family, or group of a few people. Jennifer and Sandora were so very helpful in booking the cabin, giving us tips about restaurants and things to do, and very accommodating about making changes to the reservation. We look forward to our next stay!

Thank you for your kind words! It is our greatest pleasure to hear that our special accommodations provide the perfect venue for a magnificent Orcas Island experience.
Happy to know you enjoyed the parade of nature that surrounds the Sunset House. Come back soon to hang out with the whales, seals, otters, eagles, osprey, herons and more as you take in that "absolutely fantastic view"... We all look forward to your return!

I just returned from SUCH a lovely stay with my husband and two children at Cabins on the Point. We had the most wonderful time in the Willow cottage. Looking out onto that beautiful water each morning from our cozy little spot was heaven. I appreciated how incredibly clean it was as well as all the beautiful details - fresh flowers, cozy bedding, xmas lights in the sun room, etc. There are loads of kayaks and life vests and the kids and I had an amazing morning kayak on the glassy waters just in front of the property. Wonderful spot and really nice people!

My husband and I visited Cabins on the Point for two glorious nights to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The Heather Cabin, sitting directly on the edge of the water, was wonderful! We enjoyed the loving touches Jennifer included in the cabin...flowers, games, comfy beds, AMAZING views, peaceful and untouched beauty. There is a sweet kitchen to use, a cute "pot bellied" fireplace with firewood available, and a fantastic place to relax and watch the sea or read a good book. The feeling of solitude was so relaxing...no phones or internet. Ahhhh.... The cabin was close to hiking and different little towns on Orcas. It was the perfect spot and we WILL be back!

Room Tip: The Heather Cabin is right on the water with stunning views and sounds of the strait...even from the comfy queen size bed.

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!
