We stayed with a number of other folks for a wedding recently. While my wife and I couldn't get a king bed, both of us enjoyed the incredibly comfortable double beds in our ensuite room. The bathroom was pretty small, but was redone really tastefully somewhat recently -- only complaint was that it was impossible to turn the light on... More

My wife and I stayed at the Outlook Inn last weekend and had a marvelous experience! First, the location of the hotel enjoys the catbird seat of Eastsound village, looking directly over to Indian Island--which can be walked to during low tide about 40 days a year--the beach across the road offers a quick taste of island nature. The Eastsound... More

I'm absolutely amazed by my experience here. This hotel has been here for over 120 years. Yes, some of it is that old. They have made all of the rooms cozy and welcoming. The older section is like visiting your favorite grandmothers home and the newer portion is both romantic and luxurious. Virtually across the street from the head of... More

The San Juan Islands provide a dramatic backdrop and the Outlook Inn was the perfect place to stay. Check in and check out was a breeze, the room (Bay View Suite) was roomy, comfortable and quiet. The food at the New Leaf Cafe (on premises) was some of the best on the island. Centrally located so you can walk to... More

We recently stated here as part of our exploration of the San Juan Islands. Such a beautiful island and such a beautiful Inn. Our friends had stayed there before and raved about the Outlook Inn. We were not disappointed. The room is huge and on two levels. The upper level includes the bathroom, a all kitchen area, and a king... More

Just returned from a quick trip to Orcas Island and had the great joy to discover Outlook Inn. FABULOUS! Located in the heart of the quaint little town Eastsound, the Inn offers relaxing accomodations and fabulous food. A huge plus is the tiny beach and tidal area just across the street. The town is full of small shops to explore... More

We spent a four-day weekend on Orcas Island at the Outlook Inn. No question about it, the Outlook Inn is the best hotel with the best restaurant (New Leaf Cafe) on Orcas Island. Rooms are beautiful and well appointed, views of the sound are terrific, service from the staff is outstanding, and the restaurant is fantastic. It's location in the... More

Mom and daughter retreat here was idyllic. Very quiet, peaceful with outstanding views. The staff was ultra-friendly, always had a smile and kind word. Restaurant not always open this time of year but definitely loved the happy hour small plates and delicious soup. Excellent base for exploring the wonders of the island.

We had a wonderful time on Orcas Island, and at the Inn. The room was beautiful! We loved the view, and the tub was spectacular. All staff were exceptionally friendly, and we enjoyed an amazing breakfast at the restaurant. We will definitely return.
