“Great location and atmospere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2008

Superb location close to the town, but quiet, and with excellent view of Mount Baker - when the cloud lifted, which was most days. Very relaxed and very helpful atmosphere achieved by Sue. Very clean large room, with 'genuine victorian' bathroom fitments. Whilst that's all very well, we felt the room was a bit sparsely furnished - and none too warm in the evenings. There was a fire, but not working so far as we could see; and I would have preferred a modern bathroom, but my wife thought it in keeping with the whole house - but anyway, that's being very 'picky'. Would be happy to stay there again.

Stayed July 2008

We stayed for two nights at the Blue Goose Inn.
Our room was just fine, but like one of the other reviews we also ran out of hot water. Maybe for us the fact that Sue was away and there were very few guests staying even though we had been told they were full was a let down. The cookies on arrival were great , the internet was non exisitent in the house we were in and there was no phone to use. This was quite a problem for us with a business to check on in New Zealand. We could get the internet in the garden but there was too much sun to view the screen. Personal service was not available and when one of the other guests staying had an accident there were some problems. The houses were very clean and lovely furnishings apart from plastic table cloths on the breakfast table. Not really in keeping with the beautiful homes. Perhaps we had been very spoilt after staying at Gingerbread Manor, EdwinK B & B and C H Bailey house, all of which were just magic places to stay.

We really enjoyed the Bluegoose Inn. The hospitality was outstanding, very clean and quaint.

There only thing that needs improvement (the only thing) is to make sure there is enough hot water for baths and showers in the morning. We ran out in the middle of the first shower so one of us had to take a cold one. only occurred in the morning.

We would definitely go back and highly recommend it.

What a lovely place! I've not stayed at many B&Bs and I was a bit worried about what it would be like to stay here, but it was a great experience. The rooms are quite large and nicely furnished. I had a bath with a whirlpool - that was a treat... Breakfasts were nice, but you need to know that if you ask, Sue will serve earlier than the standard 9:00am, which was late for me and my plans each day. There's a large yard with tables and chairs. Short walk to shops, restaurants, and the airport shuttle stop.
I would definitely stay here again.

The Blue Goose Inn was a wonderful place to stay on Whidbey Island. Sue runs a wodnerful B and B and her attention to detail is evident in everything, from the room that we stayed in to the breakfast(s) she served. We were in the Captain's Room and it was lovely. The view of Penn Cove from our room was amazing and the bed that we slept in was to die for! The B and B is within a short walk to all of the shops and restaurants in Coupeville....it was a wonderful location to stay in!

Someday I think Sue will have her own cooking show on the Food Network.....that's how amazing her breakfasts were!

It is a really stunning area to visit, and perfect for scenic hiking. The Blue Goose has really clean, spacious rooms, and the host was very nice and friendly. We enjoyed our stay very much. For me the breakfast was pretty rich every time, but that is just my taste. It was good quality and well-prepared. The Wifi quality varied, and the plumbing made noises (old house). There are cookies and coffee and tea out all day, which was really nice.

  • Liked — Lovely room and location
  • Disliked — the breakfast! it was good quality but not my taste!
