Our stay at the Outlook Inn was absolutely wonderful! The room was so luxurious that we didn't want to leave! We ended up having bread, cheese, fruit, and wine for dinner on our balcony which overlooked the gorgeous bay and San Juan Islands. We only spent one night which was not enough! Next time we will stay a minimum of...

We booked 3 rooms (2 in the main inn & one in the East Wing) for a Saturday night stay (early September). We were in Eastsound for a family wedding (my husband is from Orcas Island). Our teenagers stayed in the main inn & my husband & I in the East Wing. No complaints about the main inn rooms: kids...

we had a very warm welcome at reception which is always a great way to start a vacation. We had a corner room with a beautiful view and the room was excellently appointed and very clean. II see from other reviews that there are shared baths, but we had our own, with a big tub and shower. It is a...

My family and I spent two nights in the main Inn. Our rooms were European style meaning we shared a hall bath with 3 other rooms. We rented both a room with two twins for our teen daughters and a queen view room for ourselves. Rates were very reasonable. Both rooms were charming comfortable and clean. The queen room was...

The name gives away the greatest feature of this fine hotel. The view out the front is spectacular. When I booked the room I was warned that the rooms did not have private bathrooms but used shared common shower and toilet. That turned out to be no problem at all, as there were several of each located nearby in the...

Charming Inn with all the comforts! We stayed in one of the bay view king suites with a view of the water. King size bed was super comfortable. The bathroom was nicely done with a jacuzzi/separate shower, heated towel rack and heated floor. A nice touch. A nice open feel to the room with a sunken living area and fire...

Such a lovely and quaint historic inn with a great location next to the sea and to an array of cute shops and restaurants Orcas Island has to offer. Came here with my family and have to say the room was so comfortable. The atmosphere was light and airy, very clean - felt very comfortable. You walk outside the hotel...

We had a second floor room with a nice view of the water. The room was well decorated, spacious and very comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located near the shops of Eastsound, with ample off-street free parking. Our only negative comments would be some moderate noise, coming both from nearby rooms (normal coming and going, nothing out of the ordinary)...
