breathtaking view in this historic but well maintained row of cottages. We woke up to abundant sunshine in the east facing windows and spotted a deer. Spent the evenings watching birds while the kids played in the yard overlooking the spit. Short drive away from the beach and town. This is the kind of vacation that people dream of coming... More

There is too much to love about my experience at the Fort Casey Inn. I prefer my accomodations authentic and unfussy. I stayed for 30 nights. I asked for a house without television and I was glad to have the peace and quiet free from distraction. I Never got bored with the surroundings. There are gorgeous hiking trails just steps... More

Last minute plans led us to a wonderful overnight stay at Fort Casey in. There happened to be one unit left, so it was meant to be. What a wonderful step back in time gem. The home is decked out in antique furnishings, there is no TV,(WIFI is available, but not always guaranteed). We loved it! It was my husbands... More

Please understand that this review was written by one whose age is showing in diminished agility and balance. Also please understand that an effort has been made by the innkeeper to preserve this historic site as much as reasonably possible. Hence, no TV or telephone (but how does one report a fire). This was my second two-night stay at the... More

Loved the location but the unit was very hot. All the heat rises to the bedrooms and there are no fans and the windows only open less than a third. Bring your own fan if you can. Not a lot of kitchen utensils either.

Thank you for taking the time to evaluate your experience at the Fort Casey Inn. We're sorry you were too hot in your unit.

Former officers' quarters are quaint and well located on the island. There are full kitchens, but they are quite poorly appointed. If you like to cook, be sure to bring your favorite pots and pans and any other kitchen equipment you need but consider even slightly unusual.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We do our best to keep the units as they were in the early 1900's, but that doesn't go for kitchen supplies. Please let us know when you arrive (or anytime during your stay) if you're missing something and we'll be sure to get it to you. We do hope you'll... More

This was such a great old house, completely furnished including kitchen utensils. We only stayed one night, but this would be wonderful headquarters for several days on Whidbey Island.

An outdoor swimming pool is open June thru Aug with exception of Sunday. Year round guests have access to board games, picnic tables, hiking trails as well as the nearby beach. The beach offers spectacular views of the Straits of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains. The inviting row of Fort Casey Inn cottages together sleep up to 46.
