Welcome, I'm Sara Farish, one of the owners of the Outlook Inn and New Leaf Cafe.
Whether you are staying in our historic building, our Bay View Suites or our exclusive brand new Water's Edge modern luxury suites on the waterfront, our goal is to share comfort, beauty and deep rest in a busy world.
We would love to serve you, but please keep in mind we are sold out every summer, so reserving a room as early as possible is highly recommended.
At Outlook Inn, we want to help you get the most out of your trip to Orcas Island—the most value, the best food, the best new you returning to the life you live when you're not on vacation.
So what does that mean?
Let me explain. Comfort is more than a cozy bed, just as deep rest is so much more than a good nights sleep and a few days off work. And beauty...it's mind-blowing.
We're not talking about magazine beauty, we're talking about beauty that inspires, uplifts, and renews - just being in its presence. You'll find it in the view, the miles of trails for hiking and contemplation, and in your own reflection of the deep blue sea.
Deep rest provides the fuel for your deepest dreams - the ability to be completely present with loved ones, the energy to charge ahead on the project that keeps you awake at night giddy with excitement, the space to connect to your "still small voice".
I know what it's like to juggle family life, a business, and my own creative yearnings. We've created a place to share comfort, beauty and rest in a busy world so that you can keep living the rich life you love.
The Outlook Inn is a combination of mom and pops old time Inn, sophisticated foodie haven, and an art project with layers and layers that keep revealing something more beautiful than what was there before. Comfort, beauty, rest.
We're a hotel, but we don't sell rooms, we share an experience of Orcas Island culture with you and your loved ones.
