“Great B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2007

My husband and I went to Whidbey Island for quiet week-end away from home. Our stay at the Inn was great we stayed one night and had it to ourselves. Our room was full of beautiful anitques and our king size bed was wonderful. Sue was a friendly hostess and was able to help us with tourist information. The island is small enough you can stop in almost all the towns and shop and look around. We also stopped at the Whidbey Island Winery and did a little wine tasting and bought a bottle of wine. When we told Sue she offered us wine glasses for our room. We would go back and stay again and maybe have another couple join us since there are only 2 rooms to stay in it would be like having a whole house to ourselves. The down stairs has a very nice restaurant with a gourmet menu and a nice wine list, we will have dinner there next time.

The Blue Goose bed and breakfast in Coupeville, WA, on Whidbey Island, is a true delight. It's a historic register old Victorian house that has been completey redone and brought up to date with no detail spared. Beautiful antique furnishings, wonderful big bathrooms, huge comfortable beds, and gorgeous linens.

The owner/hostess, Sue Cunningham, couldn't be nicer or more friendly. She is determined to make your stay a true delight, whether just for one night or more. With only two bedrooms (as big as suites) it is never crowded, so you can really enjoy your visit. And that's what it's like - a delightful visit with an old friend!!

The restaurant is under fairly new management, and the new chef is terrific. Wonderful food, beautifully presented - with a real flair for using local produce and main courses.
All in all, if you're going to be in that neighborhood - the lower SanJuan Islands - don't miss this magnificent B&B. You won't be sorry - it's a real pleasure! And, as a bonus, Coupeville is a really interesintg and fun town to explore!

After spending several nights at the Blue Goose inn in Coupeville, Washington I found the entire experience to be wonderful! From the old fashioned claw foot tub to the marvelous bed, which is THE most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, to the delicious breakfasts in the morning. The bran muffins were yummy!

The hostess, Sue, is very pleasant and makes you feel right at home. Plus if you have a special need there is no hesitation in providing it for you.

The restaurant is truly a decadent experience. The chef puts out a fantastic dinner. We liked the variety of fresh seafood! The Blue Goose Inn is just a few blocks from the waterfront with all sorts of wonderful shops and restaurants. Watch out husbands!! When I go back to Whidbey Island I certainly won't hesitate to visit the Blue Goose Inn.

We loved our stay at the Blue Goose. It's a charming Victorian with the nicest beds I've ever slept in. Spotlessly clean. Yummy breakfast, and I liked the food in the restaurant as well. Coupeville is cute with lots of shops, but we really liked riding our bikes as the roads were all very quiet and rolling.

It's spring and all you hikers should head for Whidbey Island and enjoy the beach at Fort Casey and the wonderful views from the bluffs at Ebey's Landing. Plan to enjoy an overnight in a restored historic old home in Coupeville. The Blue Goose Inn is a treasure and breakfast is special. We loved the antiques, the garden and Sue, the enthusiastic owner. Try it.

My husband and I stayed at The Inn at Penn Cove for 2 days in the spring of 2006. The Inn consists of 2 separate Victorian era buildings, each containing several guest rooms as well as public sitting areas. I agree with the other reviewer who wrote that the rooms have a tired feel. The beds are pretty saggy and rooms a bit musty. Also, the bathroom was not as clean as it should have been.

Coupeville is absolutely beautiful and a great place to stay while exploring Whidbey Island (which is also stunning). The proprietors were friendly and knowledgeable about the town and island. But I also agree with the other reviewer's comments about the skimpy breakfasts. While the food was tasty, there wasn't much of it, and both my husband and I were ravenous just a couple hours later.

The Inn is reasonably priced compared to other options in the area, but the accomodations do leave something to be desired. I'd definitely try another B&B before I returned to The Inn at Penn Cove.
