Loved room # 54 with sitting area, small balcony, and an unobstructive view of the bay. Hot tub was superflous though. Would definitely stay there again.

We chose to stay in a luxury bay view suite and it was perfect. The staff were wonderful and very responsive. The beds were comfortable. The best part is that the location is perfect for checking out the cool shops in town as well as visiting Moran State Park. Make sure that younask for the tide schedule when you check... More

We stayed four nights at the Outlook Inn in early June, 2011. We stayed in the east building in an upstairs room. It was a very pretty room with a small balcony that looked out toward the driveway, main building and chapel. All in all the stay was nice. There were two things that were rather annoying about this room.... More

Stayed at Outlook Inn with my daughter to celebrate her birthday. Our room was gorgeous. The most comfortable king bed, four piece bathroom with huge jetted soaker tub, sunken living space with fireplace, balcony overlooking the bay, large flat screen TV and small kitchenette. Recently renovated yet tastefully decorated to keep the theme of an Inn and spotlessly clean. The... More

My partner and I stayed here over the Memorial Day holiday. We opted to save some cash for food and activities by staying in the "European style" part of the the inn located in the original guest house where your room comes equiped with a sink but you share toilet and shower facilities with the rest of the floor. It's... More

We only stayed 1 night at the Outlook Inn but it was great! We were in one of their luxury bay suites, which looked exactly like the photos on their website. The building itself may look a bit like a college apartment complex but the location (on Main St.), view, service and style of the room was both inviting and... More

Perfect location. Courteous staff. Very well priced. The accomodations are far from elegant, but you can't beat that location for that price!!

We were looking forward to a wonderful romantic 27th anniversary weekend. The location of the hotel is beautiful. We stayed in a room with a view of the water. The room itself was a major disappointment. The room looks old and tired. Sleeping on the floor would be as comfortable as the bed was. There are lights in the parking... More

I've been here three times. The first time was for an anniversary trip. We stayed in one of the luxury suites and it was indeed luxurious! Really a lovely room, with a fireplace, very comfy king-size bed, and a jacuzzi in the bathroom. I've stayed in the historic main building twice. The rooms are comfy and cute. Shared bathrooms, but... More

Beautiful place! We celebrated our anniversary here. We go somewhere different every year and we felt after 32 years of celebrations this is in our top five! The bayview suites are totally amazing for a relaxing and enjoying weekend. Most of the local shops are closed on Sunday so make sure you visit them on Sat.
