Outlook Inn

Orcas Island, Washington State

The hotel

Located north of Seattle and Olympic National Park in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, pristine and bewitchingly beautiful Orcas Island is practically shaped like a giant hug. And there, at the heart of its geographical embrace lies the village of Eastsound and the Outlook Inn. Sara Farish and her husband own and run this haven of comfort, beauty and rest, and the two of them are serious about your relaxation. Many rooms and suites give out onto sigh-inducing views, and all are finished with neutral tones – all warm woods and tactile fabrics. And food is no afterthought, here – the Outlook’s New Leaf Restaurant prepares elevated comfort food that’s as beautiful as it is satisfying.

We stayed in a room that overlooked the little island in the bay. It had a little balcony that we could have our coffee in the morning and enjoy the view. Our room was on the second floor with a back staircase. The inn was taking precautions due to COVID, so no housekeeping or even seeing other guests. Not a problem. We had plenty of towels… Read more
We stayed in a room that overlooked the little island in the bay. It had a little balcony that we could have our coffee in the morning and enjoy the view. Our room was on the second floor with a back staircase. The inn was taking precautions due to COVID, so no housekeeping or even seeing other guests. Not a problem. We had plenty of towels and lovely products made especially for the inn for our use. Overall, nice stay and great little inn. Would recommend. We never had the chance to eat in the restaurant on the first floor, but it looked very nice. Would definitely stay again if we ever make it back to Orcas Island! Also, Inn is walkable to everything in town - so enjoy! Read less

As others have noted Outlook Inn is a lovely place to stay right in downtown Eastsound. The rooms and beds were comfortable and quiet.

As others have noted Outlook Inn is a lovely place to stay right in downtown Eastsound. The rooms and beds were comfortable and quiet. One of the highlights was the beautiful chapel and grounds in back where we spent a peaceful afternoon reading. Now onto another topic: the owners have a lot figured out, especially with regard to us traveling during Covid. Instead of going to the front desk to check in, we received a text with the code we used to unlock our front door. This is just one example of how they've really embraced technology to make traveling easier. Read less

Absolutely lovely hotel. Big rooms, well decorated, great hot tub. Truly enjoyed our 2 night stay with a bicycling group. Toiletries were very nice, although in large bottles ( to prevent plastic waste). We were served breakfast snd one dinner in a private DR snd it was fantastic.

I never wanted to leave! The Outlook Inn on Orcas is wonderful - clean, convenient, helpful staff, spectacular view and gorgeous, spacious rooms (Bay View Suite). I loved waking up every morning and looking out the window onto the beautiful bay. So peaceful and relaxing. I also enjoyed sitting on our deck in the evening enjoying a glass of wine… Read more

We could not have asked for a better experience for our 1st time on Orcas Island...it will definitely not be our last. Read less

Great location, spacious room and the most comfortable bed. Loved the plush linens. Nespresso Coffee in the room was a treat! The water view was lovely. Very clean and compliant with Covid guidelines.
