WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR Relaxing, no-agenda mini break. Time to catch up on reading, movies and sleep. WHAT WE GOT Thumbs up: -- Great room with full view of the ocean (stayed at High Tide). Fell asleep & woke up to the sound of waves. -- Breath-taking sunset. Best ever! -- Private beach. During our entire 4 day stay,...

The amazing food is the real attraction here. The Chefs (Blaine and crew) are simply the best at simple, local, foraged fare. We've been back multiple times and each time we remark how lucky we are to have an experience like this so close to us in Seattle. The Inn is nice, we've tried the Inn rooms as well as...

This was our second visit to the Willows Inn mainly because we couldn't forget the amazing dinner we had last summer. Last time, we stayed at Low Tide but this time, we stayed at High Tide. It's in the same area away from the central inn. High Tide definitely has more privacy than Low Tide but the bathroom is located...

We just made our second visit for dinner and an overnight at the Willow Inn. Looking at the other reviews their are some consistent themes, which we would agree with. They are a unique and excellent dining experience, expensive but worth it if you value a great dining experience and the accommodations leave a bit to be desired. Food is...

I do not think anything I could possibly say in this review could do this place justice! The only thing I would advise is, the experience we had from accommodations to Chef Blaine Wetzel's tasting dinner blew our socks off and is 10000% worth it if you are considering it. I would also say that we did this adventure as...

We returned because of the world class wonderful restaurant and world class chef. As good or better than last year in the restaurant. Our original opinion of the mediocre Inn stands. So unprofessional an operation when people make it a destination for one of the best dining experiences in our State and Nation. Where to begin with the sad bed...

The New York Times was right - get on a plane and get here! Definitely one of the best, most memorable meals ever...a must-do if you're a foodie in any way! And Lummi Island is just gorgeous and so peaceful and relaxing - we really felt rejuvenated. We loved it so much, we have already booked a return visit in...

This is the most reliable way to get a table at the Willows Inn restaurant (see those reviews). We've stayed at the Inn twice now, this time much better. Cleaning was done earlier and room staff more attentive. We also rented the beach house with another couple which is recommended if only for the amenities and added space. We rented...

We stayed at the Farmhouse suite minutes away from the main inn. Cookies awaited us upon our arrival (yum!). This country style suite has over-height ceilings and there was a full gourmet kitchen complete with espresso maker and a working pizza oven. I don't know how many vacationers know how to operate a pizza oven but I was tempted to...

We didn't have the much recommended dinner, but we loved the place anyway, We were staying in the Farm House and had a very interesting tour of the nearby Nettles Farm - a must-do activity.
