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.

Pros: Beds are extremely comfortable. Slept like a baby. Walking distance to everything and the air in front smells like flowers. Cons: Lawnmower mowing outside "honeymoon" suite in the morning and checkout is strictly at 11. Front desk people dotty and disorganized. If you find this charming, go for it.

And Eastsound offers many great places to get coffee and eat, and we particularly enjoyed the food co-op. Highly recommended! We will stay there again. Read less

Convenient location. Great room. This hotel is in the middle of town, within walking distance to everything. It has a great restaurant on the pricey side. It is set back off the road so not much road noise.

It's all about the special loving touches and character of Outlook Inn that will ensure that I always stay here when visiting the island. The bathroom in the hallway is no problem and actually makes the Inn feel more like home. The staff are so welcoming and attentive.

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here, and the accommodations are excellent. The room was clean, the bed was extremely comfortable, and the service was phenomenal. We also had breakfast while we were there, and the food is really great. I would definitely stay here again!
