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 one of the Water's Edge suites for four nights and the accommodation was perfect. The room is beautiful with an exception view of the bay to watch the tides and bird activity. As an added plus the staff were very efficient and responsive to any request. The bath items available are also first class adding to the experience. We… Read more
We stayed in one of the Water's Edge suites for four nights and the accommodation was perfect. The room is beautiful with an exception view of the bay to watch the tides and bird activity. As an added plus the staff were very efficient and responsive to any request. The bath items available are also first class adding to the experience. We actually purchased some to take home an enjoy. We would recommend the Outlook Inn on Orcas Island to anyone visiting the island. In addition to the Water's Edge suites there are also several different types of accommodations to fit any family size or preferred location. The location is also a very easy walk to most of the restaurants, grocery store and retail stores in Eastsound. Read less

The views are beautiful and the staff are very kind (Tracy, Isaac, Patrick). However there were some very frustrating things during our three day stay. We repeatedly had to take cold showers. Per the front desk they were at a high capacity so there wasn’t enough hot water. In addition, our fireplace didn’t work. Maintenance was able to turn it on shortly after check in. However, once we turned it off to go out, it never lit again during our three day stay. Due to COVID safety we didn’t want maintenance coming in and out of our room repeatedly to fix it so we just did without it the rest of the weekend. I would expect these basic things like hot water to be functioning in a $200 per night room. Cold showers in the middle of winter were not pleasant. Read less

We really loved Outlook Inn. The customer service was the best I've ever experienced. The place itself is beautiful with the views of the water and mountains but also in the heart of town and 1-2 blocks away from great shops, bakeries, etc. I definitely plan on coming back and recommending to all my friends and family.
