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.

My husband and I had a nice stay at Outlook Inn and an AMAZING dinner at New Leaf Cafe. We would highly recommend both this comfortable, cozy, clean hotel and the innovative menu and great service we had at the restaurant.

A wedding brought us to the Outlook Inn. It was a perfect weekend get away. The wedding was held in Sara's garden on the property. It was lovely. The reception dinner provided by the New Leaf Cafe on property was delicious and the wait staff was excellent.

Beautiful room, modern decor, unbeatable view, excellent service, amazing restaurant and accommodating staff. Plus very covid safe. Oh and easily best location on the island- access to your own private beach, but also 5 minutes walking to all the best restaurants and shops. Highly recommend for your next getaway! Read less

Issac at the Front Desk is the SUPERSTAR! I have to book a group of reservations for our client, and I had to make multiple changes. Issac is so kind and patient with me with all my crazy modification! The hotel should give Issac a Raise :) -Lulu

The location is perfect for strolling around Eastsound to get a bite to eat. Plus the view of the water is outstanding. They are very careful and follow Covid-19 safety precautions - masks, contactless checkin and out. Sanitized rooms. The service at the hotel was perfect. We encountered a minor issue, but it was quickly resolved by the owner… Read more
The location is perfect for strolling around Eastsound to get a bite to eat. Plus the view of the water is outstanding. They are very careful and follow Covid-19 safety precautions - masks, contactless checkin and out. Sanitized rooms. The service at the hotel was perfect. We encountered a minor issue, but it was quickly resolved by the owner and we were compensated for our inconvenience with a small bottle of a very tasty wine and some candy. The restaurant at the hotel is a must for one dinner. We'll be back whenever we visit Orcas. Read less
