We recently spent three nights at the Outlook Inn on Orcas Island. When I made the reservation the only room I could get for the first night was a standard motel type room with the sink in the bedroom. The 2nd and 3rd night of our stay, we were able to get a king size suite. Spring for the extra...

Loved this beautiful Inn on Orcas Island. It really is the place to stay. Well located, clean, with a really good restaurant right down stairs. Also a great value. We stayed in the European style rooms with shared bath as they were sold out on all the other rooms. We loved our sparkling clean white room, and the shared bath...

We made arrangements at Outlook Inn for guests who came for our daughter's wedding. The staff untangled some last minute glitches in a gracious manner. The guests were pleasantly surprised with the view. We have been going there for weekend getaways for years. We hope to have many more years of waking up to that lovely view. As parents of...

We LOVED our stay at the Outlook Inn. We visited in September, when the summer crowds were winding down but the weather still (mostly) good and the price for an entire bay view suite unbelievably good. Our suite was large and very comfortable with a beautiful view and lovely sitting area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We loved...

The Outlook Inn was better than I had remembered it. The last time I was there was over 30 years ago and I wanted to relive that experience. I had requested to stay in the old part of the inn and have the view of the small bay in East Sound. I had invited two of my best friends to...

We were extremely disappointed. Apparently, there are two sections of the Outlook Inn. We stayed in the section that was nothing more than a motel room. We had expected to stay in the Inn that is advertised as having views, is quaint and roomy. Our room was nothing of the kind. The ony view we had was of the parking...

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Outlook Inn, in the middle of our vacation to the Washington, Seattle area. The accomodations were extremely comfortable in every respect: the amount of space we had, the amenaties provided, everything was meticulously clean. The location to the rest of the town and ease of traveling around the island was ideal. For...

The Outlook Inn is perfectly located in Eastsound village, the center of the action on Orcas. The folks here are very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are nothing special, but are clean and well-equipped. The New Leaf Cafe is a delightful small bar and restaurant with very good island food. We had salmon, of course! This inn is a good...

Started out trip to the San Juan Islands in this Inn and found it absolutely charming. The room was superb in comfort and view of the bay. Did not eat in the New Leaf Cafe but the restaurants within steps away were wonderful. I wish I had more time to spend in the Outlook Inn as it was so delightful.

Spent three nights here just after Labor Day. This was the end of a nine day visit to the Pacific Northwest with stops in Seattle, San Juan Island and then Orcas Island. We splurged on a Bay View Suite and it was gorgeous, comfortable and worth it. The view was great, the amenities top shelf, and the bed gave the...
