The Inn at Penn Cove is a bed and breakfast housed in an historic two storey house on a well-treed corner lot on Main Street in Coupeville, near the Island County courthouse and jail. It is a quiet and charming location in small-town America. The house has a Thai restaurant on the main floor. The property includes guest rooms on the second floor, a room off the patio behind the restaurant, and another, smaller building.
We were warmly welcomed by the managing couple, who turned out to be a wealth of local information. We got the patio room. The patio is surprisingly secluded, being surrounded by the rear building and mature apple and pear trees. Our room was accesses through a pair of French doors, you know, made mostly of windows, locked with an ordinary door lock. We were showed to our room and the manager bade us farewell.
There were a few items of concern. The room was nice enough but felt like your parents' rumpus room. The carpet was dirty. The adjoining room was a combined bathroom and coffee making area, which was fine except for the cobwebs in the spaces around the shower. We heard noise from the back of the restaurant for some time.
The patio has a motion detector which activates a flood light. At 11:30 p.m. this light lit up the profile of the man trying our door - an unexpected and frightening experience.
The breakfast part of the bed and breakfast was out-sourced in the form of two gift cards for the Knead and Feed restaurant and bakery, located at the bottom of the street. It is a very good choice.
