We spent 1 night at The Willow Inn on August 4, 2016. We stayed off site in the Loganita Cabin, and had dinner and breakfast the next day. Our closest friends had stayed in the past and raved about it. Now for the past 14 years, we have vacationed together and had foodie vacations at some of the finest restaurants...

Lummi Island beautiful, low-key island easily reached via a 10-car ferry ride. We stayed two nights at the spacious, well appointed Beach House at the Willows Inn, which was serene and romantic (lots of steps leading down to the house/beach, so not an ideal situation for anyone with mobility issues). The sunset view from the main deck of the house...

My husband and I stayed at the Willows Inn for one night to have dinner at the restaurant. The accommodations were like, hip-rustic and had a lot of nice touches like French press coffee, wine, robes, food/beverage at check-in, etc. (No A/C or fans FYI - usually you shouldn't need it so far north anyway). I wish we had been...

The room is just a room, but it is the only guarantee for a seat at dinner. That made it worth it. This place serves the best dining experience you can imagine! We started our meal with a before dinner drink. Local herbs and great quality spirits made a good cocktail. We were then served some great "starters." Amuse bouche...

The most comfortable bed I've slept in during recent travels anywhere. It was like a cloud. And the grounds, the air, the pebbled beach across the street and down the way... not to mention the most outstanding, delicious, sublime food I've ever had (and I've been to Faviken and others like this). Nicholas and the team made the whole experience...

We chose to stay two nights (June 26/27 2016) for a birthday celebration because of Chef Blaine Wentzel and his amazing team. They exceeded my expectations. The food was delicious and of course what I liked best is that there is a true sense of a 'team' of chefs that work collectively to ensure that each guest eating has a...

Multiple course meal, one seating nightly. They shut down in the winter months, and space is limited so prepare accordingly. Priority for restaurant reservations is given to those who book an overnight room with the inn. The food and wine pairing were off the chart good. The views were amazing. The one downside was that our "pet friendly" room wasn't...

This was are second trip to Chef Blaine Wentzel's Willows Inn on Lummi Island off the coast of Washington. The experience was even more delightful then the first, which was in September of 2015.

I have heard about this little inn with the famous chef (Blaine Wetzel) for years but was completely blown away by the experience that we had there.

There's a feeling we just got robbed on Lummi even though the locals say there isn't any crime. well then what the hell just happened?" Why is my check book $1200 lighter after one dinner and one night's stay? Was it the 22 (or whatever, I lost count after 5) mini-bites of raw clams, chard stems, teaspoon of rhubarb jam,...
