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... More

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...

107 years old. This place is very nice and relaxing to the soul, mind and body. Garden and Lagoon filled with many small bugs and birds. Ease of checking in on line is awesome. They respond very quickly. Price is not too bad (Watch the restaurant, $$$$) Checked in 30 minutes early and staff are all wonderful. Initially, the room... More

My wife and her family used to visit here over 30 years ago. She remembered a charming peaceful setting and it has not changed. I would describe the setting as Waldenesque. The hotel was built 107 years ago and it's charm remains in tact. Gorgeous views from your room, the dining area, the lobby, and the porch. No TV, no... More

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... More

We stayed in one of the Lagoon Rooms with a view over Kennedy's Lagoon and Penn Cove behind. Our room was on the second story and provided for a delightful view. We enjoyed its historic feel. There was a wedding going on over at the inn but other than it making the restaurant off limits that afternoon/ evening, it did... More

Stayed for two nights on a Groupon deal. Booked a "lagoon view" room which had en-suite facilities. Still a great outlook from the small balcony. Recommend do not stay in the main building unless you enjoy wandering down the corridor at night to use the bathroom! The beds were moderately comfortable, but to each his own! No TV or other...

I was scouting this place for a possible writer retreat location. I walked the entire property and viewed every space from cottages to the bathroom-less second floor rooms. The conditions were rustic, and I like rustic, but how can upwards of 12 to 24 people in the 12 rooms upstairs share only four toilets and two showers? The cottages are... More

My husband and I had a get away. Ew weekends ago. Stayed in a deluxe room as they are the only ones with private bath. Room was very outdated with linoleum like floors in bathroom. Very comfy bed and continental breakfast was good, though.

We found a deal on Groupon and had not been to Whidbey Island before so it was a great match. It is a lovely old building with lots of creaky floors, antiques and vintage charm. The rooms are small but nice, our bed was a little hard but generally comfortable and very clean, there was a sink in our room... More
