We booked very late for Thanksgiving and found that only rooms with shared baths were available. Our room was directly across from the bathroom and quite accessible. We never had to wait to use the bathroom or shower. The room and bathroom were very clean. Coffee in the lobby was delicious; dinner at New Leaf Cafe superb. Excellent location in... More

The Outlook Inn is the perfect get away from Seattle. Suite #51 is GREAT! Awesome most comfortable king size bed, great jet tub, shower and the prettiest of views from the balcony. The New Leaf Cafe is beyond spectacular, the food is scrumptious, the wine selection is fabulous and the service is so detailed and personable. Going to The Outlook... More

My husband and I stayed two nights at Outlook Inn last week. Although the New Leaf Cafe was closed for the two nights we were there (better planning on my part next time), we still had a lovely time in Eastsound. The inn is right on the main street as you come into town so it is beyond easy to... More

Our room was very nice, but the fact that the restaurant was closed while we were here made this feel more like a motel than a full-service inn. Off-season visitors coming mid-week should note the restaurant's closure.

We did not feel particularly welcome. Seems this place is trying to be many different things to many different kinds of people. While that may be a smart survival strategy on a small island, it did not produce the exceptional experience we had hoped for. That said, the Bayview Suites are very large and comfortable and have a fantastic view... More

The front desk at this hotel closes at 8:00pm. We arrived around 10:00pm and saw a sign stating "Outlook Inn" near the road. We quickly discovered that this sign is next to a two story building with no reception area. Another sign says "New Leaf Café" which was closed. I then walked across the street and located a church. Finally... More

We spent three nights at this hotel for thanksgiving last year and will do the same this year. Our suite was very pleasant. There is a health club close by. Walk or drive to many restaurants. Understand that the restaurant at this inn will be open this year and we shall have thanksgiving dinner there.

On a last-minute whim, we ended up at the Orcas Island Film Festival, which is in walkable Eastsound. We have always driven on the ferry (which can be a major hassle and pricey), but this time we flew in via Kenmore Air. 45 mins later we were in the fantastically-located Outlook Inn. The bayview suite is just lovely and more... More

My wife and I stayed here for our first anniversary and it was fantastic. We just happened to be on the ferry with the sister of the night manager, who very happily offered to drive us from the dock to the hotel. It was like a mini guided tour on the way, which was great! I really wish I could... More

Our waterfront view room (a "Bayview Suite") was so perfect we hardly wanted to go out. A view of Indian Island and the changing weather. Wonderful comfy bed. Two steps down to a sitting area with a gas fireplace, couch, table and chairs, as well as a balcony to sit outside. Very spacious and clean. Walking distance to shops and... More
