We stayed at Cabins on the Point in late August as the second half of a trip that took us to Mt. Rainier before coming here. Our cottage was a 2 bedroom standalone unit with a very nice kitchen/living room/sitting area. We have 2 small kids who like to run and the unit included access to beach.
Overall the unit was superb. There was plenty of heat and the rooms were very well kept. The service was provided by the proprietor, Jennifer, and she was very helpful. She was very proactive in trying to set up reservations for us at restaurants, perhaps too much so. We were more interested in bringing food to the cabin for most of our meals. Our unit had a problem with the phone that rendered it useless and we had to use a common facility phone eventually for all of our calls. She also had good recommendations about tour services, etc.
The jewel of the whole establishment, outside of the fine quarters, was the beach it had access to and the outdoor fire pit. Our kids spent countless hours throwing rocks, turning over stones to find crab colonies, touching and holding starfish, climbing rocks, and going out on kayaks. I can't say how much we enjoyed having access to this space. I'm not as interested in the quality of lodging as much as what it gives you access to, and this beach was sensational.
The location of the cabin is nice. Orcas was a great place to visit and combined with the other attractions on the island makes for a nice family stay. Our cabin was not cheap, which is why as a value, I'd say this was not the greatest, but you also get a lot in terms of the quality and upkeep of the cabin and the grounds.
