This place is so quaint and charming. Good place to relax and unplug. No tvs in the room. No distractions. Just beautiful scenery. The rooms are rustic but very well equipped with comfy beds and they're clean. It's the perfect Washington tourist experience. There's not much to the breakfast and the restaurant for dinner is pricey but pretty good. Coupeville...

Had a wonderful time – this is INN is a relic – very rustic; yes you have shared bathrooms (1) for women and (1) for men. The room was very lovely, on the smaller side – the view was incredible looking over the water. The customer service was okay - it was a busy weekend and a small staff. The...

You first drive into the property, and think how cute. You enter through the large red door into the lobby(be careful it doesn't hit in the behind, literally).. The lobby is "very" old fashion and you ring a bell for service. You are politely waiting on and we are give our keys, with the attendant telling us we have a...

I grew up on Whidbey, so ate here, but never stayed until a few years ago. The Inn is just lovely. I prefer a cabin rather than the main house (low ceilings) but every room is lovely. And the food still rocks (you just have to have Penn Cove mussels while you're at the Inn).

This is a totally unique and peaceful Inn by Penn Cove. If you stay in the main house, you may be visited by ghosts of times long ago. A sprinkling of antiques, log construction, creaky floors and very quiet rooms await you at The Captain. Fortunately, this is not your average B&B. However you will need to share the showers/restrooms...

I love the rustic authenticity of the property. The views and grounds are fantastic. The rooms could use some updating in the plumbing and furniture. I would give this four stars if the upgrades were completed and five stars if there was a little more privacy. We stayed in the lagoon view building and enjoyed the wonderful view...but this and...

Friends highly recommend we visit the Inn. What great advice. We went mid week for two nights, and, found our stay absolutely rejuvenating, mentally and physically. Stepping back in history to a less hectic time was only part of the ambience. We stayed in a ground floor Lagoon room. Yes, some noise from nearby rooms, but not annoying. The Inn's...

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?
