We stayed four nights in the Willow Cottage in August 2013. Charmingly decorated, clean, and has all the amenities. We used the full kitchen to cook all our breakfasts and dinners. We bought our food either from the little grocery by the ferry (which is very well stocked with everything from basics to gourmet items) and the IGA in Eastsound. We didn't get a chance to use the kayaks, hot tub, or fire pit because we were so busy exploring the islands, but we did enjoy the beautiful water views. The property itself is also full of fruit trees and is nicely landscaped. The free internet worked fine. My husband was even able to access our home tv through an iPap app, allowing him to watch a baseball game. We had no trouble accessing the cell service, either (we are on AT&T.) The bathroom is a nice size, and the queen-size bed very comfortable. There is a futon in a separate part of the living room, and a twin in the window of the bedroom if you are traveling with children or other adults. But this is a perfect couples cabin for a vacation or romantic getaway (or both.)
Although I only had contact with the owner, Jennifer, over the phone, she is extremely friendly and helpful. She provided us with information on what to do in the area, and even offered to go with us on a whale watching trip, which sadly, we weren't able to fit into our schedule (actually, that turned out to be a good thing - I forgot how seasick my husband gets!)
I highly recommend Cabins on the Point. Orcas Island is a wonderful place to visit and you couldn't ask for a more comfortable place to come home to after a full day exploring Orcas and the other San Juan Islands.
