Willows Inn has smiling, friendly staff and well-maintained grounds. Stayed in the small "sunset" room above the lobby and stared out at the beautiful view of the Puget Sound. Pictures here: http://www.drawn2style.com/willows-inn/ Enjoyed an unforgettable meal at the restaurant, reviewed separately.

We came here for New Yea'rs Eve, which is also our wedding anniversary. The dinner was out of this world amazing -- treat after treat with a beautiful presentation. It was a really special place to be on such an evening. Afterwards, they kept the bar open late for a champagne toast at midnight. The lobby bar is also well...

Yes that is a bold statement! As a former Manhattanite (Cipriani, Le Bernadin, Jean Claude, Mr. Chow) and as a former L.A. resident (Spago, Matsuhisa, Mr. Chow), I have been to many eateries whom each make a claim to the top spot. However, Blaine Wetzel steals the cake and my blessing. The servings are abundant (16 snacks, appetizer, main dish...

We stayed at the Willows Inn on Lummi Island to eat at the restaurant, and it was a spectacular experience. The Inn has a great location, overlooking the water, and is very quaint. We stayed in the Sunrise room, which was an attic-like room in the main inn right up the stairs from the lobby. It was clean, decent-sized but...

Our room was The Haven, which was remodeled this past winter. It is nicely done with a huge bathroom like none you have ever seen before. It has a fireplace and seating if you have quests for 4 people. The staff was more than happy to provide us with glasses for our champagne and even opened the champagne bottle for...

Our friends and we came to stay at The Willows and could not have had a more glorious experience. We were expertly guided from the moment we made our reservation until we checked out, but of course the dining experience was above all, to be recognized for an experience one cannot possibly put into words (though many have verbosely attempted...

We stayed at one of the suites located in a house a mile or two down the road. While the house was surrounded by beautiful views and decorated with nice furnishings, we found the $500/night price tag just not worth it given the lack of service, numerous problems we ran in to, and noise due to thin walls. We stayed...

We just came back from a two day two dinner stay at the inn. The food has to be some of the finest and most imaginative we have ever had and that includes France and New York and other culinary centers. The staff is young but informed and friendly. The views are jaw dropping. We will definitely come again in...

We came for the meal, not the Inn, so overall our experience at the Willows Inn was good - but it would have been great if the room wasn't such a bummer. The bed was comfy - but the room is spartan (no clock, no music system, no dresser or shelves) and we had to ask for hangers and to...

Lummi Island is a step back in time to a slower peaceful environment. The inn is located on the westside of the island with great views of the San Juan Islands. But dinner at the Inn is the interesting experience, truly one of a kind. The food keeps coming and each time you experience something you have never tried before....
