Really enjoyed staying here whilst on Orcas. We had a european room one night and a garden room the other two nights. All clean, comfy and quite charming. Food good at breakie and at dinner. Lovely little gift shop too.

We had a small wedding reception at the Outlook in and it was great. The meal was perfect for the occasion and the staff was attentive, helpful and pleasant! We stayed the night before and found the rooms nice but, a little warm. We did have to share a bathroom and showers with other guest in our particular wing but,... More

I got very lucky and found a cancellation at the Outlook In for a night -- if possible stay in the King room with the view--so comfortable .. great view... More

I've been cycling to Orcas Island for many years and have often gazed at the Outlook Inn in Eastsound and thought, "Looks lovely, I must stay there some day." Well, I finally did so and I can't speak highly enough of the experience. I love the price options that are available.

Great room, great location, great service, beautiful view out on the bay. I would only stay here or Rosario when on Orcas, depending on what suits your vacation. Besides, Rosario has to deal with a lot of wedding over the summer months, which is not the case with Outlook Inn. Walking distance to Lower Tavern, which has the best burgers... More

The hotel staff are extremely friendly and professional, managing this lovely family-run historic inn. The in-town location makes it convenient for shopping and dining, as well as renting kayaks to tour by water and bikes to tour by land. A car isn't necessary, as they offer a ferry shuttle. The restaurant serves excellent and creative food (be sure to try... More

The staff at Outlook Inn is amazing! In particular, Chelsea, who manages the front desk in the afternoon and evenings, went above and beyond to accomodate any needs we had! We needed ice to keep some things cold and Chelsea made sure we had plenty of ice during our stay. The food at the New Leaf restaurant (in house) was... More

My fiance and I are getting married on Orcas next year and will be using the Outlook Inn for our reception. We've stayed at the Inn several times, and have experienced nothing but stellar customer service, spotless rooms, and great food at the New Leaf Cafe. They are one of the few hotels on the island that does not require... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Outlook Inn. The location was excellent - conveninet with gorgeous views from the balcony. Staff was friendly and the food in the New Leaf Cafe was quite good. We were there with a travel group and all was organized very well so we had a smooth stay. The surrounding town is quite charming.

My partner and his young adult daughter stayed at the Inn for 3 days in late June 2013 in one of the suites. The views off the balcony were priceless! The whirlpool tub relaxed us after a day of hiking and exploration around Orcas Island. The room was spotless, the bed was extremely comfortable, and the kitchenette was handy to... More
