Captain Whitbey Inn: Whitbey Island

I would not recommend staying here unless the price is lowered to a more appropriate level as this is not 3 or 4 star accomodation in my view. We stayed two nights in a Lagoon room and found it to be well below what we would expect of a $165.00 per night room. The double bed was very lumpy and uncomfortable, the tap dripped and the fixtures were old and stained. The gardens were lovely but the dock on the water was closed likely due to safety concerns. We were fortunate that there were not many guests when we stayed so it was fairly quiet but being an older building in a motel style it would be best to stay on the top floor. I'm not sure about the inn rooms but when having breakfast on the main floor the creaking of people walking above was very loud. The breakfast was fine and the inn keeper was very friendly.

The old inn is gorgeous and the gardens are lovely. It is well situated for sight seeing on the island.

South Whidbey State Park: South Whidbey Offers Pristine Camping

We stayed four days/3 nights over a weekend in May at South Whidbey State Park at sites 13, 15, and 17. Near the restrooms and Park Host and just down from the trail to the beach.

Overall the stay was relaxing and enjoyable. The ranger drove around several times a day. He asked noisy groups to be quiet after dark, the restrooms were kept clean and stocked.

If you are camping in the spring, be sure to bring warm clothes (preferably fleece) and down sleeping bags to keep warm at night. It can become quiet chilly. If it calls for rain and you are tenting it, bring plent of tarps and rope.

The only drawback was the one shower in the loop's restroom. The campground was only half full, so shower lineups were minimal.

The Officers quarters can be rented by the night: Officers Quarters pre-war, Fort Casey

Before you enter Fort Casey there are the Officers Quarters and Barracks for the soldiers of the fort. They are no longer at the fort and all the property has been turned into a park. Part of the land is owned by Seattle Pacific University and is used as a center for youth sports.

Anchorage Inn, Bed and Breakfast: Local Bed and Breakfast, Coupeville

Very nice location with a view of the water. The Anchorage Inn sits just over the town of Coupeville. It is a new home built in the old style. We have heard many nice things about it.

Captain Whidbey Inn: Hallway to the Rooms, Captain Whidbey's

A really fun place to spend the night. This is the hallway in front of the rooms. The hall is filled with old sea chests, old time navy uniforms and sailing antiques.

Captain Whidbey Inn: Rooms in the Lodge

If you want old fashion, wild west comfort, choose a room in the lodge. They also have modern rooms in the annex on a small lake. Cabins are also available. In the lodge, the bathroom is down the hall.

Captain Whidbey's: Captain Whidbey Inn, Coupeville

Perhaps the most famous Inn on Whidbey is Captain Whidbey's. Since 1907 the Captain Whidbey Inn has offered lodging and food to their guests. It originally was used as a trading post for fur traders. Much of this trading post is original. As you dine in their intimate restaurant you can imagine Indians pulling their canoes onto the shore to trade furs with the Europeans.
