Ship House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 9 Anacortes B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 June 2013

This is the second time I have stayed in this place, first time was in the Captain's cabin, and this time in Oar House. Both turns out to be memorable. I took the time this year to travel on my own and spend some time in the tranquility of the place and relax by lying in the hammock and watching the sunset while listening to the waves.
Occassionally the humming birds will storm across.
The owners Oggie and Betty are very friendly people, they have kept the place very clean and put in decor with their pictures that makes you feel welcome.
Breakfast is self-served, it's not hotel quality but that works for me. The breakfast galley faces the waterfront and allows an enjoyable breakfast.
There is Wifi (barely from the rooms but you can get better access from the breakfast galley), but it is supposed to be a place to getaway, so I don't mind.

Room Tip: It is a very romantic place to be, book the Captain's Cabin if you can, you get to use the hammo...

The Ship House Inn is a one of a kind B&B! The scenery and views from The Ship House Inn are breath taking to say the least. From the moment we arrived the nautical theme invited us in and made us feel at home. The Inn Captain Oggie greeted us as we arrived and made us feel like family. The accommodations were neat, clean and comfortable. Anacortes is absolutely beautiful with so many things to do and see. Our stay could not have gone any better. What a memorable experience!! Cannot wait to return!!
Thank You Oggie and everyone at The Ship House Inn

While the nautical themed rooms are quite nice, so many other things left a poor impression. The "Continental Breakfast" now consists of some fruit, cereal and then mostly frozen foods that one may microwave or toast. To add "insult to injury", half the frozen items listed on the menu were missing. The room (The Oar House), while quaint, was clammy and damp feeling (as were the bath towels). The view and hammock in the back yard was fantastic but the need to dodge the dog poop was discovered too late (yuck!).

This is NOT on par with other B&B's at this price.

My husband & I stayed at the Ship House - and thoroughly enjoyed it. We stayed in the Captain's cabin. It was clean, quiet, warm and very comfortable. The views are Amazing. Captain Kidd (Oggie) was very helpful and kind.

It is a short drive into town - we prefer to stay at a place that is away from a busy "downtown" (if you could call downtown Anacortes a busy downtown :) ) -- so the Ship House was perfect for what we enjoy on vacation; peace & quiet. And truly beautiful views.

We spent a night here in this wonderfully unique bed-and-breakfast on our anniversary. The decor was nautically themed and the view out the front window was spectacular. We had the Captain's Cabin with a large king bed - you could actually sit up in bed and see out the front window. There was even a set of binoculars there to gaze at passing boats! You couldn't have asked for nicer hosts - the captain Oggie and his wife and cook Maggie went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Breakfast was homemade salmon quiche and homemade muffins. Coffee, tea and juice were available any time ... and there was also a fridge with frozen waffles and pancakes, etc... The only thing we didn't like was having to leave the cabin to walk to the Poop Deck (bathroom) but other than that the place was fantastic. A very fun and unique place. We would love to return there again in the summertime when we can sit out on the deck and enjoy a warm evening looking out at an incredible view.

If you are looking for a stay with beautiful people, fantastic food, views to die for and great accommodations, then the Ship House is a must. Firstly we were greeted as if we were family, and the 'Captain' and his 'crew' couldn't do enough for us. We were either shown, or advised, on the best views of Anacortes, and were welcomed into their home so much so that we spent little time in our room. Our room, the Oar House, was large, comfortable and self contained. We stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of our 3 week road trip around Washington and didn't want to leave! The Inn looks out over the bay of the San Juan Islands and boasts stunning sunrises and sunsets. Check it out, because these people have so much to give it is a gift. Thanks Captain and all the crew.

Needing to get away and tired of the same old blase hotels, my hubby and I chose this B & B after reviewing it online. Headed out and had car trouble. Called to inform host of delay only to be assured it was no problem. Very late arrival to find a gracious host, delicious cheese tray, and tasty bottle of wine to eradicate our bumpy start! The Oar house was beyond nice, it was inviting, cozy, comfortable, and phenomenally unique! Our host and his mates made this stay the most memorable, enjoyable stay we have experienced to date! We have stayed in 5 star facilities that may have pricier accomadations, but they could never match this B&B's ambiance!!! Leaving there was like leaving family and we will definitely return!
