We had two a joining cabin, looking out over the bay. View was amazing. My wife and children went for a hike on Fort Ebey and I stayed behind and read my book " The Boys in the Boat". Out on the deck, all I could hear was leaves landing on the deck or some crows chasing a bald eagle...

I have stayed at the Capt Whidbey on numerous occasions--during all the seasons. The first was after our wedding and we stayed in a Lagoon room; next with my sister when we edited my first book, and most recently we visited for my sister's birthday. We love the place!!

I stayed at the Captain Whidbey for one night based on a friend's recommendation. I didn't want to spend a lot of money, but I wanted a private bathroom (lodge rooms have shared bathrooms down the hall) so I booked a Lagoon Room after looking online. I also thought my son and maybe a friend would be staying with me....

This is an old rustic building built in 1907 with pretty gardens and a water view. Nice dining room. There was a wedding group there when we visited --it was great with pretty women running down the hall from their shower and lots of happiness in the group.

We found this place by chance while we were doing a little road trip. Stopped and had lunch here and it was fantastic. We had the halibut sandwiches The mussels and the bocochini salad... It was all very fresh and delicious. I would definitely return.

The Captain Whidbey Inn is a quiet place, on Penn Cove. The Inn itself is constructed from logs, quite charming. Our room was in one of the lagoon buildings,somewhat more modern.

From the outside we were delighted. Walking in though is a different story. Our walk to the room, up a tiny staircase was met with creaking and cracking of the floor.

The rustic lodge is interesting in itself, built in 1907, it has retained it's history. The rooms in the lodge are: bed, a sink , a window and in some cases a chair. But it was prime for it's time. We stayed in the lagoon view room that must date from the 60's with pine paneling and no tv. But...

Would love to give the Captain a better review but.....Stayed in cabin 32, on 8/14/-8/15. Upon arrival went to early dinner, where we were pestered by fruit flies, in our face, on our plates,and drinks. Waitress refilled husbands water glass I told him I wouldn't drink it as I could see a dog hair and white particles floating around in it. The food as my husband described had no "Wow facture", 1-10 maybe 3. On Saturday morning we woke to no running water. Now things like this will happen, but we were VERY poorly accommodated. After 3 phone calls to the front desk (being told it would be fixed soon) my husband asked if there was a place we could get a shower. By this time it was noon and we had sat in our room all day, no coffee, no teeth brushing, no going to the bathroom, no breakfast, and not even a drop of water to drink. We were directed to room 14 across the driveway. After having to go to front desk, in a fresh from bed and grouchy state from no food or coffee, we got a key and walked to room 14 with once again with very poor directions. In room 14 we ran to use the toilet. While sitting there I noticed the floor towel was dirty. The soap and shampoo were open and in the shower and all the bath towels were wet. I had to walk back to office to get new towels. We had booked a cabin, highest priced room so we would have private bathroom, not to end up sharing one. If others needed a room to shower they should have refreshed it before sending us there. The bed was the worst made I have ever seen, sheets all wrinkled and not tucked, had to pull tight and tuck it before getting in. Bed very uncomfortable, woke with back pain trying not to roll into dip in center. Also had to step around a wet spot on the bedroom floor, found after stepping on with socks now soaked. They brought in a fan opened all our window so when we returned to room it was freezing, not to mention they left all our windows open with our belongings in there, I did not appreciate that at all. We also were not told there was free breakfast, found it on other reviews. The grounds are nice and the main building was beautiful. This could be an awesome place with better management and higher standards, for the price definitely not worthy. We were given 10% discount for water problems. What a joke, half price or a free nights stay to do the things we missed out on sounds more like it. We were told if we didn't agree with the 10% discount we could talk to the owner. That would have involved wasting or Sunday morning to try and see some of the Island before returning home. I don disagree with our service and compensation. Also as we left room 14 Why was a housekeeper cleaning drinking glasses to those rooms on the ground with a water spicket out the side of the building? Would have though I would only see something like that in a third world country.Hi, what would you like to know about this accommodation?
