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.

The room was very large, very comfortable, and had all of the amenities, including a fantastic, oversized jacuzzi tub. The on-premises restaurant, New Leaf Cafe, was also great. The breakfast was amazing and the dinner just as good. Some friends stayed at another resort on the island and after seeing ours, wished they were at the Outlook Inn. Definitely check it out!

This was our favorite hotel in the San Juan Islands. The room was spacious, peaceful, clean and tastefully decorated. It offered nice amenities such as a coffee maker and refrigerator. The hotel's location was centrally located and walkable to all. There onsite restaurant was excellent.

So, we booked the new suite accommodations in town just built at the inn, across the street from the main bldg. Unfortunately, we paid a lot of money for this privilege and were not happy. The view is wonderful...no question. You could hear the road noise at night whooshing by...a pocket door would have helped! There was one chair in the room,… Read more
So, we booked the new suite accommodations in town just built at the inn, across the street from the main bldg. Unfortunately, we paid a lot of money for this privilege and were not happy. The view is wonderful...no question. You could hear the road noise at night whooshing by...a pocket door would have helped! There was one chair in the room, which faced the bed and not tv...the other available chair was at the desk...space was not what it should have been for that money...just too small. I came to find out after mentioning this that a larger suite with a couch was available, Not worth the high price IMHO Read less

We attended a wedding on orcas island and stayed at the Outlook Inn for a couple of days. By the time we booked our room there were only shared bath rooms at the main building available. We were in room 7 and it is pretty small. While I was initially reluctant to take a room with a shared bath, both the bathroom and shower were very tidy and there… Read more

We enjoyed the lovely view up Eastsound from our window. Read less

This is an old place but it has great charm, great people and great spot in Eastsound. Of note is SERVICE and CONVENIENCE. Feel like you’re in an old B&B in a good way. Special shout out to the ever so helpful and kind Sophie Grace, and the patient and thorough Katie I don’t know all the other names but if I did I would mention every single… Read more

Special shout out to the ever so helpful and kind Sophie Grace, and the patient and thorough Katie I don’t know all the other names but if I did I would mention every single one of them. Obviously the owner is very focused on having the right people in addition to operating and maintaining a quality Inn Read less
