Orcas Island has a quaint little town in east sound, great bay view from this older building, that had shared showers and washrooms in main building. It is close to in town venues, restaurants and bay front We drove to top of mountain great views but the road up there is a bit dicey.

Hotel rooms are simple and clean--more like a beach cottage. The restaurant is really special and delicious. We just fell in love with the island--the water, mountains, restaurants and shops, kayaking with the seals....

If there's one thing that will make you fall more in love with this fantastic little town, it's the Outlook Inn. There rooms are quaint and plush and even come with window seats. The staff is incredibly friendly and the Inn is conveniently located downtown. The only downside is their lack of a continental breakfast but it's something I'm more... More

This was the second year I have had the JOY of visiting the Outlook Inn. From the moment you enter the door, you are in for a treat!! I deliberately chose one of the smaller rooms but was given the gift of birdsong from a tree right next to my window. The ladies at the check-in desk were friendly and... More

This was our first trip to the San Juan Islands! The Outlook Inn has many great rooms, ours had a view of the bay across the street. The staff is very friendly and have great ideas and directions to see the local sites. There are many one of a kind shops, great bakeries and we enjoyed Pizzeria Portofino and the... More

The room was decorated nicely. It was great to be able to walk to restaurants, a delicious bakery and some fun shops. The room was quiet as well. It was a girlfriend retreat and we enjoyed it a lot. The New Leaf restaurant with the lodging looked very nice, but was too pricy for my budget.

Beautiful room with small balcony and view of the water across the street. Very comfortable with fireplace, sitting area, kitchenette, and nice, large bathroom. Bed was very comfortable though there was some noise from the neighboring rooms. Location is very close to town and we spent part of the day walking around town, having lunch and shopping. Eastsound is a... More

This was my first trip to any of the San Juan islands and we couldn't have been happier with our choice in lodging at Outlook Inn. We reserved the suites (highly recommend) with a gorgeous view of the bay, Jacuzzi tub, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, towel warmer, pull out couch, fireplace, flat screen TV, and balcony. The room made our... More

We stayed here for 5 nights as a 5 year anniversary trip. East Sound is a picture perfect place with lots of yummy food within walking distance. The best part of our trip was our beautiful room at the Outlook! Absolutely get the bay view suite if you are traveling as a couple! It was worth every penny. The view... More

The Outlook Inn was located perfectly to everything. The New Leaf café is the best place to eat and is located right at the Inn. Free parking was a plus. Staff were very friendly. Just outside of the Inn you could sit in Adirondack chairs facing the water with spectacular views. We were not disappointed at all.
