This is not an upscale, modern place. It is an old house with all the attendant charm and foibles, filled to the brim with interesting and unusual artifacts from all over the world. Jan and Marshall Bronson are among the most charming and welcoming people you will ever meet. Marshall (the chef, among other things) turns out a breakfast repast... More

Beautiful bed and breakfast and very gracious, charming couple who run it. Would come back again. Breakfast was good, and interesting antiques everywhere. We only stayed one night, but wished it had been for two so we could have seen Coueville, but it was a relaxing and fun getaway.

My wife and I stayed for almost a week for a weaving class in town my wife was taking. Jan and Marshall made us superbly comfortable, giving us information about the island and things for me to do during the day. Excellent information on where to eat on the Island, and ferry information. A new and excellent breakfast each morning,... More

We stay at bed and breakfasts a lot but this place offered a lot of new experiences, ones we could live without. When we arrived, we had just been kayaking and were anxious to shower and use the restrooms. The owner had a different idea. Instead of showing us our rooms, she led us to the cluttered parlor for a... More

We had a delightful stay at the Compass Rose! The breakfast was beautiful and delicious. Our king size bed was comfortable. The house was filled with rare and beautiful antiques. We were treated like royalty! Jan and Marshall are delightful hosts. If we ever return to Whidbey Island, we will stay here again.

The bed and breadfast website stated that the two guest rooms had private bathrooms. This was a misleading claim. The queen bedroom has a toilet, sink, and shower. There is no private bathroom in the king bed room. Instead, there is a bathroom in the hall outside the queen and large bedroom. From the moment that we arrived to the... More

Well, what can I say? I had read the reviews in advance on T.A so wa expecting SOME antiques and a superb breakfast, but to arrive at a completely overcluttered house with no surface left bare was completely OTT. The owners were away and instead Erin was looking after the place as best she could, but when we were asked... More

Marshall and Jan are energetic and very engaging hosts. We even got a ride in the Packard and a folder to remember our stay! But you won't forget your say because you will be so well treated and entertained. All their collected stuff is a kick, too. If you like dishes, they will show you their 52 sets. That does... More

Just a place out of time, Captain and Jan made you feel at home, just the experience has made me want to go back and spend more time with them and their lovely home. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, the best Eggs Benedict I have ever had, very gourmet. They truly enjoy entertaining strangers, and when you leave you feel as... More

If you're visiting Whidbey Island you must stay at this bed and breakfast! I can't recommend it enough. It's a beautiful victorian house, wonderfully decorated with antiques, well located in Coupeville. I came over with my parents from England to attend a wedding at the nearby Jenne Farm. Jan and Marshall Bronson were brillant and made our stay memorable with... More
