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 player,then this place may not be for you. The 15 courses menu will introduce you to food that you may never have eaten before,but the portions are very small, if you expect a chunky steak,then one should visit the Beach Cafe instead. Our favourites are Halibut skin, Kale leaf ( a single leaf with truffle) , steelhead salmon roe.
They also make their own juices as well which is offered with the meal,cucumber, sorrel, carrot
Elderflower.
We would rate this 5 star if the restaurant can be more flexible with the seating arrangment, tables are set up for 2 or 4 , we are a party of 5 and they will be move the tables for us. So our friends have to eat at a adjacent table.
Otherwise for a romantic weekend getaway, you can not lose, sunset is beautiful, nice beach walk just outside before dinner will set the scene.

Room Tip: We choose the Sunset room just over the lobby,it is the smallest and cheapest at $200, however it is a decent size still by European standard, and has a beautiful view overlooking the bay, best value.

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 Hardware and Tommy Bahamas), the wait staff were friendly and professional (loved the long leather aprons they were wearing) and the use of natural woods and stones for food presentation left you with a lasting impression that you were indeed enjoying the bounties of the Pacific Northwest.

At first glance of the set menu, it seemed that I would need a midnight snack afterwards. However, much to my surprise, there were about a dozen or so intricately prepared “snacks” which were offered between the main courses. These bites completely tantalized and teased our taste buds and left us longing for more please!

Besides the meal itself, the amazing sunset is worth the visit alone. If a picture could describe a thousand words, I leave you with some of these images....

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 might see a pod of orcas swimming by. At the rear of the house is marshland with pools where kingfishers dive and ospreys and herons fly overhead.

We stayed in the Clark suite which had a very comfortable bed and lovely amenties, a large bathroom with a jetted tub overlooking the estuary and a great espresso maker. The kitchen was well stocked with pans and dishes and there was a very large TV. The only drawback was lack of internet but that was of little concern to us.

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 leading out to a large tiled verandah. The room is very modern of "Vegas Suite" quality including: walk in closet, electric fireplace, large screen flat TV, Keurig coffee machine, small refrigerator, soaking tub, deluxe walk-in shower and wonderful products. We loved sitting on the back deck looking out at the pond and wetlands which was incredibly quiet and peaceful, except for the red-winged blackbirds. The home was obviously furnished by a designer, and I wouldn't want to have small children in the home. This isn't a beach house and putting your feet up on the coffee table wouldn't work. The cost included breakfast for two at the Beach Store Café (see my review) and helped off-set the "New York" price tag of $375. per night.

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 had a nice view, but was lacking in far too many amenities and housekeeping standards to warrant the $325 a night rate.
