“Fantastic Cottage Get-Away!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We spent 2 nights in this lovely cottage and it will now be one of our favorite places to return to. We were greeted and shown to the cottage and everything was explained. Though a main street runs in front of the cottage, it is well set back and there was plenty of privacy.

Our breakfast was waiting in the refrigerator so we didn't have to be up at any specific time. We had delicious individual quiches, fresh fruit, orange juice, coffee, banana nut bread and there was cereal and milk, as well. If we were still hungry it would be our own fault. The second day's breakfast was delivered while we were out sightseeing and was just as yummy.

After relaxing in the hot tub (which is shared with the other cabin) we enjoyed a movie on the flat panel TV. The queen size bed was comfy and we had a wonderful night's sleep. The chocolate truffles by the bed were the perfect touch.

Our hostess suggested a place for dinner and it was excellent. She also suggested a couple "don't miss" places and we're glad she did.

This was one of the nicest get-aways my husband and I have ever had and we look forward to returning. We definitely would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a cozy, secluded get-away.

We were looking for an affordable overnight getaway close to home, preferably with hot tub, and this place was a perfect fit. The cabins are tastefully decorated and clean, and stocked with homemade breakfast treats and delicious goodies which really added to the welcoming feeling. Watching the stars from the hot tub was very special, and the cabin has a partial view of the bay and Mount Baker. There are several eateries in the Coupeville area (see our review of our Captain Whidbey dining experience), but call for reservations if you're planning dining out. We enjoyed chatting with the owner, who showed us the house they also have available for large gatherings (sleeps 9). If we're planning another Whidbey overnight, we'll definitely consider another stay.

We stayed at Garden Isle Cottages (September 5th-6th, 2013) with our daughter and son-in-law, after taking the ferry from Port Townsend and to begin our journey back to Canada. We were absolutely delighted to find such a perfect base from which to explore this beautiful area. The owners are charming folks who provided us with wonderful homemade breakfast goodies, and the accommodations in the two cottages are top notch and classy. We hope to go back with our kids another year. Thank you Dan and Darellyn for making our first trip to Washington such a memorable event.

Our experience at Garden Isle Guest Cottages was a delight. It started from the greeting we received upon our arrival to the homemade breakfast each morning. The owners were warm and friendly and created that same feeling throughout our experience. The cottage was charming, clean and fully stocked with everything you needed. It provided a comforting feeling like you were at home. I would highly recommend a visit!

My husband and I stayed here a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it! Everything was so clean and they went out of their way to add little details to make their guests feel spoiled. We loved the private hot tub area... nice way to relax after a long day. The food was all homemade and wonderful. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. This place is a treasure and we look forward to returning to it!

Room Tip: You have to book at least 2 nights to get a cottage.

My husband and I stayed at Garden Isle for a week (July 26-August 2) and enjoyed every minute of our stay! Dan and Darrelynn were amazing hosts. We were greeted warmly and awaited our delicious breakfasts and treats the first two nights of our stay. Coupeville's charm, hospitality, and northwestern outdoor feeling was a delightful experience. We hope to one day return to Coupeville and Garden Isle!
