We stayed in the Sinclair room and did not sleep because of the constant noise. Unfortunately, we had a group of loud drinkers above us and it went all night and there was nowhere to call for help. Dinner is a joke at $150 per person PLUS wine. It's a fabulous ploy to hook in those who are vulnerable to... More

There are definitely two different ratings for the food and room experience. The food is five star amazing or any other superlatives you can think of. The courses are not only delicious but also surprise both in ingredients and taste. We'll definitely be back. The Watermark on the other hand was more of a disappointment. We stayed in the Sinclair... More

We stayed at the Willow Inn in order to try the restaurant. When we booked in June few rooms left, went for Clark as least expensive at $250. The room was nice with the jacuzzi tub and the balcony looking over the sea. The bed was very comfortable. The coffee machine was a nice touch but proper milk or cream... More

If you are staying here, you have to eat at the restaurant once,it is a fix price menu at $150 p.p.,so the meal is as much as the stay. However the genius of this young chef who is now co owner is the imaginative use of everything that can be grown and caught locally. If you are a 200ib football... More

If you are patient enough to sit through approximately 3 hours of dining with someone whose company you enjoy, the dinner experience at Willows Inn will surely be one of the most memorable feasts for the eyes and discerning palates. The front room and restaurant itself is decorated in a casual but elegant fashion (somewhat like a cross between Restoration... More

Lummi Island is the most northeasterly of the San Juan Islands, close to the mainland and a six minute ferry ride away. We stayed at one of the off-site properties owned by the Willows Inn. The Reefnetter is a house with two suites located about a mile and a half from the inn overlooking Lego Bay. If you're lucky you... More

The Willows Inn also owns a property called the Watermark. It is a lovely home on Legoe Bay, about a mile and a half from the Willows Inn. The common areas are shared by everyone staying in the 3 rooms of the home. The Sinclair Suite is on the front of the house overlooking the bay with a sliding door... More

The location is great, the staff are professional, helpful and clearly the dining room staff take great pride in the restaurant, where we had truly memorable dinner. But there is a huge gap between the dining experience and the experience of the stay at Willows Inn. Our accommodation was very disappointing. The "cottage" we stayed in was certainly private and...

Definitely a good place to stay. Staff are friendly and helpful. Obviously the main reason to go is for the restaurant which is exceptional. The food is different from everything we tried so you should be culinarily adventurous. They have nice bicycles to use for free.

This was our second time at Willows Inn. Just like the first time, it was so much fun. Lummi Island has breathtaking views and is a place that you can't help but relax. We stayed in the Beach House this trip (we stayed in Low Tide last visit) with a few friends and had the best time. I believe the... More
