We have stayed here couple of times, and each time it has been great. We had a Bayview Suite, and although it was a very cold, rainy, damp day, the gas fire warmed the room up quickly. I was able to soak in the lovely deep bath, and grab my warm towel from the heated towel rail, and then curl... More

First the hotel called to say the heating was broken in our room ... a water view suite we had been looking forward to ... they offered portable heaters and the fireplace which were in place in our toasty room when we arrived. Then during a violent storm, the power went out. The hotel got its generator working so we... More

We had an amazing weekend due to the awesome room we had. Our room was clean, and the bed was so comfortable. We stayed in room 35, the best view ever. We will be coming back again in a few months. A must hotel in Orcas island.

The Inn has vistas comparable to those we've enjoyed on the western coast of Norway, and the staff was more than warm and welcoming. There are plenty of nearby restaurants and shops (including a chocolate shop where you can get European style hot chocolate), and even in off season there are great places to see on the island - and...

I made my reservation online, effectively. Staff was quickly responsive via email to help me adjust my initial reservation. This inn is centrally located in Eastsound with a breathtaking view. The restaurant was closed during my stay because it was low visiting season, but we did find plenty of options for meals within 5minutes walking. The room was very comfortable,... More

We were welcomed by friendly staff and champagne on ice! The room was clean, comfortable and had a beautiful view. It had a cozy sitting area with a couch, table and chairs and fireplace. The bathroom even had a towel warmer. We explored the town and had dinner at a local restaurant. The Island has a winery and a brewery... More

I had stayed at the Outlook Inn Bay View Suites twice, once in 2009 and once in 2010. Both experiences were wonderful. Therefore, I had no clue that if I took a less expensive room in the East Wing, it would be any less enjoyable. I couldn't have been more wrong. At first glance, the room looked quaint although a...

I was looking for a place to stay that would provide us ease in getting around without having to drive everywhere. The Outlook Inn was just perfect. Amanda at the front desk was extremely helpful and gave us some good advise on local places to dine at for breakfast and dinner. The room was clean and comfy. After dining out... More

We were a little concerned about staying here because we weren't staying in one of the suites but in an east wing room. We thought it would be limited and small. Wow--were we wrong! We were on the second floor and had a great vaulted ceiling which just added to the ambiance--we were in #34. Two very comfortable double beds... More

The San Juan islands, a rare gem of the Pacific Northwest. One of the finest places to stay is The Outlook Inn, of East Sound village on Orcas Island. I've been lucky to be a guest there twice now. There is genuine warmth from the people who take care of you there, makes you feel special all over! The amenities... More
