We stayed three nights at this Inn. If you find yourself needing a place to stay on Camano Island, you might be in a pinch to find a place. We were lucky enough to book a room for our nights in the area. I give the overall experience five stars (please keep in mind this is relative to the area and expectations of a small Inn... it's not the Four Seasons, but it is exactly what we hoped for when we booked on this lovely island!).
We had no problems with booking our room - and it was exactly as described. We were on the lower floor, with a balcony/deck that overlooks the water. We were very happy with our room.... we didn't have a hot tub or a bathtub (we had a very large shower), but that was ok with us. The room was very clean, and spacious for us and our luggage. It was very quiet in the evening, which was really nice.
There was a station with a coffee maker (individual cups, so it is always fresh!), hot tea, water. That was perfect for us - as there are no convenience stores anywhere nearby.
Breakfast was delicious - a different 'choice of two' every day. There was also a different sweet pastry each day - they were all good. We also dined at the restaurant two (maybe three?) times. The food was really good - not cheap, not expensive. The outdoor seating area was perfect during the warmer hours - lots of birds (we saw hummingbirds and eagles) and butterflies.
It is on the water, with a nice view of Whidbey Island. I didn't realize until we arrived that the Inn is on a bit of a hill. To get to the water you have to climb down quite a few stairs (the stairs seemed recently redone... very nice, with a sturdy handrail); but then you have to navigate a rather narrow path for about 15 feet to get to the nice green space down near the water. To get to the water... you have to climb down a set of steps that are made from big pieces of wood/poles. We didn't really have any issues with this - seems typical of the area - but I thought I would include it in my review for anyone with mobility issues. If you have any issues with walking/climbing/balance... I would suggest you enjoy the view from up at the level of the Inn.
I read some reviews of this Inn that said it was very expensive - I wouldn't disagree with that, but it seems in line with other independent Inns. This is not a huge chain hotel. It is a charming, relaxing, lovely, private Inn .... I would stay there again in a heartbeat if I find myself in the area. The island itself is very beautiful and quiet. The people are very friendly and we hope to return someday.
