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.

I hesitated writing a review... but know this: I emailed the hotel after our stay with some feedback and the did not care to respond. I told them that the sheets were dirty and there was garbage from the previous guests. The room smelled musty and there were no curtains to shut out the immense light that comes into the room in the early hours.… Read more
I hesitated writing a review... but know this: I emailed the hotel after our stay with some feedback and the did not care to respond. I told them that the sheets were dirty and there was garbage from the previous guests. The room smelled musty and there were no curtains to shut out the immense light that comes into the room in the early hours. It was overpriced to say the least and I’m a bit let down by this place. The website, along with the room information book spends more time bragging about the owner, Sarah, rather than reaching out to guests spending over $350/night on a bad room. Book with Airbnb.

Stayed in a Waterfront room at Outlook during a recent bike trip. Lovely room, great view, spectacular deck, save and smart accommodations for COVID. Also had a chance to have dinner at the New Leaf Cafe - outstanding.

Outlook Inn is a wonderful place to stay. we had a room above the street overlooking the water. Room was large with a deck to sit out on to see the water and the little island across the street. We also ate at the restaurant and it was excellent.
