I was so very excited to come to Orcas Island. I had bought a Groupon for a 2 night stay and couldn't wait. The web site for the cabins said "Built on a knoll overlooking the tranquil Harbor and majestic Mountains on the Olympic Peninsula". I invisioned a great cabin with a view of the harbor. On the groupon they had a great picture of the harbor. When we got there there was only a peek of the harbor many miles in the distance. I was quite disappointed. I had made reservations for 4 adults in 2012. Never was I notified that 2 of us would sleep in a futon right next to the king size bed the other couple was sleeping in. But that worked out since our friends had to cancel at the last minute. Our adult son came with us instead and he slept on the futon. When you check in they give you a bag, a key and two pieces of candy with a piece of paper typed up on who to call if you have questions. You have to go to the office to call as your cell phone doesn't work up there. They did provide a very nice clean room and a cute breakfast basket with items for 2. But there was 3 of us?? After we left to drive around and check out where to eat for dinner and get the lay of the island we came back to a note that says they want my credit card number to charge me for the 2 others who are staying with me.At which point I did notice more granola for the extra charge. I explained there was only 1 more and they did only charge me $20 extra per night. They say they have a restaurant but it was only open one night. There are no times listed anywhere as when the restaurant is open. You help yourself to ice, computer and phone but I never saw anyone to welcome me or ask how my stay was. I will not be back. I enjoyed the island and will find another place to stay. I'm glad it was a Groupon becasue if I had paid full price I would be really upset.
