Historical Traveler Reviews Anchorage Inn Bed and Breakfast Coupeville
Wonderful room, INCREDIBLE breakfast
We were the only guests at this charming Bed & Breakfast during our one night stay, which can sometimes be an uncomfortable experience at such an intimate location. But Dave and Dianne were the perfect hosts, warm and welcoming without being the least bit intrusive. Our stay in the Crow's Nest room was perfect, and I highly recommend it. The only room on the third floor, it is spacious and private while still warm and cozy. There is a remote controlled fireplace (romantic and convenient), as well as a heating system just for that room. Additionally, the room has a large private bathroom and an incredibly comfortable king-sized bed. There is free coffee, tea, water, and soda available anytime downstairs, and there were fresh cookies out to greet us when we arrived. But by far, the best thing was the breakfast. The mini blueberry scones were amazing, and the omelettes were perfect. I only wish I had thought to sneak some of the mini scones home with me! All in all, a perfect stay. Highly recommended.
Try it.. you'll like it...
We chose this B&B in Coupeville based on the positive comments from TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. We arrived after dinner and were met by Dave who gave us a litte tour of the house. It had the quaint feeling of a B&B, yet you didn't feel like you were invading into the privacy of the owner's personal space. There was a stocked refrigerator with cold beverages and the ability to have tea, coffee, cider.. even popcorn along with the good selection of videos. Our room was on the small side, but very adequate for our night's stay. The bed was extremely comfortable and everything was so clean and well kept. The next morning we were treated to a wonderful breakfast and enjoyed conversation with another couple from Seattle. It was a wonderful experience, and we'd love to go back and stay a little longer in the area.
Wonderful Place to Stay
We chose the Anchorage B&B in Coupeville, WA. based on reviews we read on TripAdvisor, and were not disappointed. We arrived at about 4PM and Diane, the innkeeper, gave us a tour of the house and invited to to have coffee, tea a soft drink or several other snacks available for guests. She also inquired if we had any dietary considerations she should know about for breakfast.
Our room was small but tastefully done, very very clean and had the amenities you would find at a 1st class hotel, including a night light. Breakfast was served in two sittings and consisted of a fruit like smoothie, a crustless egg quiche with sausage, tastey cakelike bread, juice and coffee. It was served by Dave, the other half of of this inkeeping duo.
There was a comprehensive listing of restaurants in the area , as well as things to see and do. After talking to Diane she suggested Christophers Cafe which was excellent. Attentive service, food that looked as good as it tasted and reasonably priced. We also had a simple lunch at Knead and Feed, great for soup and a sandwich with a view of Penn Cove. Simply put, the Anchorage B&B is a winner.
Coupeville is a fantastic little town and The Anchorage Inn is a fantastic little B&B. Incredibly charming innkeeper, great breakfast! A must see destination!
A Wonderful Inn
The first time we discovered Coupeville we stayed at the Capt. Whidbey Inn. Because we liked the location we stayed there on two more occasions, each time becoming more and more disappointed with an increasingly expensive, but basically 'tired' place to stay and eat. When the chef's SPECIAL for breakfast is Blueberry Pancakes five days in a row, there has to be something wrong. One day when we were walking past the Anchorage Inn we fell into conversation with Dave Binder who proudly showed us around his Inn. We were sold, and have stayed there twice since. On each occasion we have had the Crow's Nest room, which has great views and allegedly is the highest bedroom in Coupeville. Basically, it fills the top floor and we like its comfort and spaciousness. The Anchorage Inn is a very special place. Dave and Dianne are excellent hosts - welcoming, efficient and very relaxed, even when the Inn is full. Breakfasts are an occasion in themselves. There is always something different each morning as the 'main course', and Dianne is very sympathetic to anyone with specific dietary needs. Dave entertains you, but beware, if you are from another country you may be asked to sing your national anthem! We've always resisted, and in fact have never experienced anyone else giving voice! Instead, we have enjoyed listening to a variety of traveller's tales over breakfast. Hot and cold drinks are available throughout the day for guests, and cookies mysteriously appear in late afternoon. As for Coupeville itself, visiting is almost like stepping back in time to what we English imagine small American community towns were once like. Take the self guided walking tour to see some fascinating Victorian buildings, and don't miss the Ice Cream shop or the sunsets over the Cove. We usually eat at either The Mad Crab or Christopher's, and for a real treat we go to the Oystercatcher where we have eaten some of the best meals anywhere on our travels. All are less than 5 minutes walk from the Inn.
In summary, the Anchorage Inn is a fabulous place to stay and although it is a long way from the UK we will undoubtedly visit again sometime soon.
What a view!
We had a wonderful weekend stay at this new victorian b&b. Stayed in the Fairhaven room and had amazing views of the water and the town. Our room had a queen bed with beautiful sheets and lots of pillows. One night we left the curtains open and watched the moon rise over the water from the bed. Breakfast was a real treat with muffins, fruit, and a hot entree as well as coffee and juice. There were also cookies and beverages 24/7. There are seven rooms and they were full the entire weekend, but we rarely saw anyone coming and going. The historic waterfront shops and restaurants were two short blocks away and it's a great small town to walk around. The owners are very friendly, but give you lots of privacy. We will stay here again.
We loved this bed & breakfast overlooking Penn Cove
Our son got married on Whidbey Island in June 2005. Most of our family stayed at the Anchorage Inn in Coupeville, Whidbey island, Washington. We were delighted with this beautiful decorated Victorian Inn. The Inn keepers, Dave & Diane Binder were excellent hosts. They prepared great breakfasts and keep an ample supply of snacks, coffee, and cold sodas and cookies in the afternoon. Some of our family stayed in the attached cottage which had 2 bedrooms and slept 6 people. Dave & Diane supplied them with a conntinental breakfast their first morning. The Inn is a beautiful, restfull place overlooking Penn Cove with near buy restaurants and shops. I wish we could have stayed longer, maybe some day we will return and have more time to relax and enjoy the warm atmosphere of Coupeville.
Great location in historic district, three blocks from the water, situated on a hill with a wonderful water view. Although this is a Victorian architecture building it is actually only 14 years old, thus you get the Victorian charm with modern convenience, such as a modern bathroom, and it is very clean and bright. We had the Cabot room, which, like most rooms, has a wonderful view of the sound through its two large windows. I've stayed in many B&Bs and the hosts of the Anchorage Inn are the best that I've encountered. Their breakfast was upscale and wonderful but the icing on the cake are all of the many extras that they take to make your stay enjoyable. This Inn is a MUST stay for me when I return to Whidby Island!
I've attached a photo taken from the Cabot room and of the front of the Inn (note that the city was repaving the street while we were there so the street isn't normally dirt)
After spending many years camping at Deception Pass State Park, we decided to come down for a weekend getaway to Coupeville. While the town is small, we still had a very enjoyable time exploring both Coupeville and Langley. The B&B is well appointed with pleasant rooms.
We stayed in the Cabot Room (#2) which was well lit with a stunning ocean view. Dave and Dianne were friendly and provided excellent visitor information, including many maps and brochures for perusal. The breakfasts were tasty and filling (although try Anne's Ocean Front Hideaway or the Anchor Point Inn on Salt Spring Island for really fabulous gourmet breakfasts). We especially liked the extras left out for your enjoyment at all times, including beverages (coffee, tea, juice, pop, etc.) microwave popcorn (to go with their selection of videos) and homemade cookies. They even put a Canadian flag on the table at breakfast to make us feel at home. All in all, a delightful experience!
Excellent Place to Rest
My husband and I just returned from a stay at the Anchorage Inn in Coupeville, Washington. We stayed in room 1 and it was peaceful and wonderful. Dave and Dianne, the innkeepers, were excellent hosts. The breakfasts were excellent, the bed was very comfortable, and the pace was very relaxed. We would recommend this inn to anyone who wants a relaxing vacation in a beautiful place.

We were sidetracked with the lure of a beach while headed to the north end of the island to pick up a ferry to the San Juan Islands.

We steamed the last of our purple beans, spinach, zucchini, and squash and filled ...
Smooth sailing but there is a wind outside. Lee went early to workout and by the time I arrived, all the cardio machines were taken. I lucked out and got an elliptical after a short wait. I put on my Bose headphones and watched Jacque Pepin on the TV of my machine. By the time I finished, I could move right to a treadmill. Lee was doing her sit ups and arms by then. She finished and went to shower while I finished with a good stretch. When I got back to the room ...
