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 rooms in general have been improved since our last visit in 2011. The Beach House is a nice place to stay: full kitchen, laundry, large flatscreen tv with satellite tv, Netflix, and Amazon access, and a nice sound system. It shares a deck with Low Tide and High Tide and would be spectacular on a sunny summer day. The only downside is that it "sleeps 6" but there is only one true bedroom and one bathroom (hence the 4 rating)The other sleeping arrangements are a loft with a super low ceiling (watch your head even entering the area!) that has a double bed and a cot. It is ideal for a family with kids, not 5 adults like we had. The dinner at Willows is a must; it's really the reason why everyone is there. Chef Blaine Wetzel and his team are culinary geniuses and our meal was just as amazing as it was the time before. Breakfast the next day was good, but the service was not even close to the night before. We had lunch our first day at the Taproot (located on the first level) and found it to be nice and a neat place to hang out. Overall, our experience was wonderful, the staff friendly and attentive. We are planning to go back this summer, hopefully renting out more than just the Beach House for space!
