We were hoping for better accommodations in the room, as we only planned to stay one night. It was windy and raining when we arrived on the island, but that happens when we decide to travel a little later in the summer season. Not much was open on the island, but the Sunset Resort is a quaint and cozy little escape, much like stepping back in time with turn of the century decor. The bed was comfy, the bathroom a little too small, but nice, and with no TV in the rooms guests can enjoy a group watching event in the lobby (the couch could have been more comfortable). The owners were friendly and accommodating, and though the weekday breakfasts had already ended for the season, all in all it was a beautiful view and pleasant stay. I only rated it a three because most of the attractions and restaurants were closed by 4pm, except for one place we could enjoy burger night at Kary's (burgers were the only thing on the menu, so the online menu was misleading, but the food was good). The whole island experience was less than I had hoped for, but we can't always control the weather and availability. The bright spot was the view from the window (see photos) and the ferry ride back in glorious morning sunshine (see photos).

Because Washington Island was originally settled by Icelandic and Scandinavian people, their descendants have carried on by serving some of the traditional food. During our vacation we made sure that we visited the resort once again for one of their wonderful breakfasts. I had a delectable breakfast called "Barkräm Pankaka," Icelandic pancakes (crepes) filled with cream and yogurt and covered with cherries. My husband had "Norwegeian Grilled Toast." I would recommend these two or anything else on the menu.
The resort has historical photos on display as well as crafts for sale in the pleasant well-lighted restaurant. The waitstaff is pleasant, efficient and personable. There is plenty of parking and the location on the water is lovely.

We took a spur of the moment weekend drive and ended up on Washington Island. Walking outside at the Sunset resort felt like we were in the middle of nowhere enjoying nature. It was blissful... Beautiful views Great hosts and yummy breakfast

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms would have more privacy.... we were in room 1... no privacy

Staying here felt like we were staying with family. The owners are remarkably welcoming and eager to share about things to do on the island. We found the breakfast they serve DELICIOUS. They treated us as if we were family that hadn't seen each other in decades. Our children loved being here.
No TVs in the rooms is a HUGE PLUS. Really just unplug and getaway from the day in day out routine. Wifi didn't work too well in the rooms, but worked fine in the common areas if you really need it. But when you're here, you shouldn't!

We stopped here for breakfast on our way to an event on the island. The breakfast restaurant is in the resort with nice views to the west and the open water. The staff were very polite. The menu is simple and you can check off what you'd like on a short selection sheet. The choices are classic Scandinavian breakfast items of limpa, Norwegian toast, and Icelandic pancakes (filled and unfilled). I recommend the filled pancakes and Swedish toast so that you can try the homemade cherry jam. Reasonably priced too between $3 and $7. You can also add bacon and eggs to any dish! We were not staying at the resort. Recommended.
