About the Inn

Built in 1907

Whidbey Island

We believe Captain Whidbey Inn is an icon for the Pacific Northwest. It’s incredible charm, idyllic setting and storied history set it apart from the rest. In 1907 Judge Lester Still put his blood, sweat and tears into creating a space for friends and family to gather, enjoy and cherish. To this day, Captain Whidbey has done just that.

Built in 1907 as the Whid-Isle Inn, Captain Whidbey enjoys a serene and protected forest setting on Penn Cove only 1.5 hours outside of Seattle. Captain Whidbey is just minutes from the destination resort town of Coupeville, and set in the heart of Ebey’s National Historical Reserve on Whidbey Island. For over 110 years, Captain Whidbey has provided intimate lodging, distinct hospitality and quality fare. Its historic lodge is home to Judge Lester Still’s seaside tavern, restaurant and time-stopping guest quarters above. It’s native timbered walls and stone fireplaces provide an irreplaceable sense of warmth & coziness.

Historic Inn Rooms

The original log-walled rooms are on the second story of the Inn and face either the water or the gardens. Rooms have sinks, and freshly renovated shared bathrooms, one for women and one for men, located down the hall.

Taverns of the old American west were designed with guest quarters above for their most favored patrons — the Captain Whidbey is no different. Our 12 quaint sleeping quarters above allow guests to experience the Captain Whidbey just as it was intended at the turn of the century. With shared bathing rooms, intimate guest rooms and the occasional revelry from the tavern below, these rooms are reserved for our most spirited & adventurous guests.
